This digital dimmer module can be used in 12VDC or 24VDC LED dimming applications, and can dim up to 60 of our 2W LED lamps. It mounts at the panel, or anywhere with accessible power, and can be dimmed using a rotary potentiometer, a momentary push-button switch, or a 0-10V signal. We normally use these in applications where we want to dim a large numbers of LED lights, or for 24VDC applications.

This module is unique in that it can control dimming from several different types of dimming signals.
EASY EXPLANATION OF THE POSSIBILITIES WITH THIS DIMMER:
This dimmer can control LEDs in your boat and camper, but can also be used to dim low-voltage LED lights in your home. This device is designed for dimming low-voltage LEDs. Accordingly, it takes a 12-24VDC input and also provides a DC output to the LEDs from 12-24VDC (same as the input voltage). In order to accomplish dimming, the module must receive a dimming signal. The dimming signal can be one of several different types:
- Push-button Switch - Power from 12V to 240V can be sent to our dimmer module's dimming input terminals through a push-button switch, and the dimmer will interpret your momentary or prolonged pressing of the button as a command to turn the light on or off, and to dim up, or dim down.
- 0-100kΩ Rotary Potentiometer - The dimmer module can also be controlled by a simple rotary potentiometer. This creates a rotary dimmer type switch. In this case, our dimmer module sends a voltage out to your rotary potentiometer, which then varies the voltage back to our dimmer as you rotate the knob. The dimmer module then interprets this signal, and dims accordingly.
- 0-10V signal - Many lighting control systems and fluorescent dimmers us a 0-10V signal to control remote dimmers. The 0-10V signal provided by these devices can also control our dimmer. Suppose that you wished to use LED lamps in your shower at home, but you wanted to maintain the look of a household type dimmer switch. In this case, you could purchase a 0-10V dimmer switch from Lutron (normally used for dimming fluorescent ballasts), which would attach to your home wiring, but would output a 0-10V dimming control signal to our module. Of course, the LED's and the dimmer module would still require a 12VDC or 24VDC source, but the switch would run on household 120VAC.
