    Caseta Dimmer - Triac Dimming

    Will a Caseta dimmer switch work with a LED panel that is listed as using a Triac dimmer?

    A triac dimmer is more commonly referred to as a forward-phase dimmer. PD-6WCL and PD-10NXD will both fit the bill. I would lean toward the 10NXD since it has a neutral connection which will enhance dimming range/compatibility.

    Thank you for the reply. I've had a tough time finding any information on Triac dimming with Caseta dimmers. I already have the PD-6WCL so I will go ahead and use it. For any future upgrades I do in my home, I'll consider the 10NXD.

    Is there a particular dimming protocol that works best with the Caseta dimmers?

    What do you mean dimming protocol? The Caseta dimmers will not accept an already dimmed signal. The dimmers communicate with Lutron's ClearConnect RF technology.
