What kind of equipment is the device on the picture I attached? Can I replace it with the Hatch electric driver? I try already to replace it with the Hatch driver and it does not work; so I reinstalled the Hubbell back in

Hi Sam the LED lamps are 6.5 w. 3000k 36D 800mA 12 volt dimmable philips lamps and they do work with the Hatch drivers ; it does not work on the Hatch Driver that I installed to replace the Hubbell device . At the moment there is 3 Hatch drivers together with the Hubbell device installed all the 4 working on and off controled by a single switch. I wanted to replace the Hubbell device with a Hatch driver and from the set of 4working lights ; it works only 3 . The Hatch driver installed to replace the Hubbell device did not work; so I reinstalled the Hubbell device that has a fuse and I do not know what it is ? I plase LED lights to all Hatch 3 of them already installed to replace 3 old magnetic transformers and to the Hubbell and rge seem to turn on and off but I can bit replace the Hubbell device for the Hatch driver ; it does not work

Also I notice that the Hubbell driver is for halogen bulbs only. Is this in an area where you have halogen bulbs? If so the Hatch will not drive those.
