Our LED dimmers have been improved. Now featuring 10A ratings across the range and 240Hz PWM operation

Our LED dimmer modules are designed to control the brightness of low voltage LED or filament lamps rated up to 10A. Operating from 12V or 24V DC, and controlling the load on the high side, low side or both, our diverse range of modules are designed to efficiently dim LED lamps and LEDs in a huge variety of applications.

  • Designed for LEDs, lamps and halogens
  • Widest range on the market
  • 5A, 10A and 16A versions available
  • 240Hz high accuracy PWM, LED flicker-free*
  • No minimum load requirement
  • For commercial, industrial, automotive and marine applications
  • Common ground (positive output) and common positive (negative output)
  • Dimmers available for high-side, low-side or both
  • Epoxy potted: water resistant or waterproof versions available
  • Designed and manufactured by us in-house in the UK
  • Competitive volume pricing and OEM branding available

*when used with compatible LED fittings.

All our dimmers will work with LED strip, LED replacement lighting, most LED replacements for MR11 and MR16 halogen fittings, and all low voltage LED fittings compatible with PWM.

DIM11 controls the lamp brightness by means of one external pushbutton. A brief press of the pushbutton toggles the lamp on and off, a sustained press ramps the lamp brightness up and down until the switch is released.

DIM12 uses the supplied potentiometer to vary the brightness. DIM12N is the negative output version.

DIM13 uses two switches (not supplied) for 'brightness up' and 'brightness down'. The DIM11 and DIM13 have a memory function that retains the current brightness level even when power is removed, and any switch can be used allowing full customisation of the control gear.

DIM14 is a voltage controlled dimmer and is designed to accept a universal 0-10V control voltage input found on home automation devices and PLCs such as Crestron™ controllers. Zero volts input turns the lamp fully off, 10V input turns the lamp fully on, and everywhere in between. The DIM14 provides an excellent way to control high power lighting from a PLC or Crestron™ or similar controller. DIM14N is the negative output version.

DIM15 is a radio controlled dimmer. Brightness Up, Brightness Down and on/off can be controlled from a small key-fob radio transmitter which is small enough to fit on a keyring. The module will work upto 150m away.

DIM10 module is designed to connect to one of the other DIMxx series to increase its power. An unlimited number of DIM10s can be connected to a single controller providing control for an unlimited lighting load (split into banks of 10A).

All the units employ a very efficient PWM switching technique to provide excellent operation for high power LED or lamp loads, and they are fully protected against intermittent output short-circuits, input over-voltage and under-voltage conditions. Unlike other LED dimmers on the market, the modules will control LED brightness from 0% (fully off) to 100% (fully on). The units will dim incandescent and LED lamps with ease, and the switching frequency is fast enough to avoid visible lamp flicker and LED colour shift.

Applications

  • Low voltage architectural lighting
  • Automotive and marine dash panels and lighting
  • Outdoor LED dimming and control
  • Wireless remote controlled dimming
  • Low voltage household lighting
  • Elecronic signage and advertising
  • Low voltage LED mood lighting
  • Hazardous area lighting
  • Crestron™/Lutron™/PLC controlled dimming
  • Home Automation dimming interface
  • Radio controlled lighting
  • Swimming pool lighting

The modules are available sealed in epoxy resin, resistant to water and oils. Corrosion-proof IP68 rated, fully sealed and wire-ended versions of all the dimmer modules are available (see images above). These modules have a W suffix, for example DIM14W. Extended temperature range versions are also available, specified with an E suffix, eg. DIM14E. Please contact us for further information.

Features

  • Control up to 384W of LED lighting
  • Suitable for LED, Filament and Halogen lamps
  • Waterproof, compact and lightweight
  • Common ground 'high-side' dimming
  • Common positive 'low-side' dimming
  • PLC or Crestron™ compatile (DIM14)
  • DIM11/DIM13 dimming level memory
  • Made in the UK
  • Extremely high quality and rugged
  • Use any switch on the DIM11/DIM13
  • Upto 99% efficient
  • High overload capability
  • Ideal for automotive and marine applications

Our dimmers are compatible with the vast majority of 'dimmable' LED fittings on the market, but the PWM dimming technique may not be suitable for some LED lamps.
