I'm planning a low-voltage monorail light system, fitted with 10x 7.5W 12V AC LED light heads. The manufacturer provides a "remote electronic transformer", and the installation instructions call for "remote but accessible location" for the transformer.
Can I put such transformer in the attic space above the room?
The attic is insulated, so the transformer will likely need an additional enclosure box (like this)
I looked up the California Electrical Code 2016 but couldn't find a paragraph which would explicitly allow or disallow such installation (and everything <1000V is considered low-voltage by the code, which doesn't help with search)
Besides, the attic space gets quite hot during the summer, and the transformer has a thermal shut-off. So maybe it is not a good idea to put it there anyway.
The alternative option I have is to install the transformer inside a closet nearby, but again I'm not sure whether this would be allowed by code.
