    ELV dimmer switch with no neutral wire

    Hi, I'm having trouble finding finding a switch to work with my LED pendant lights because my building has no neutral wires. Is there an ELV dimmer for an LED fixture that doesn't require a neutral? FYI, these are the lights: https://www.lightology.com/index.php...prod_id=471133

    In order for our ELV rated dimming controls to function properly they require a neutral connection. If you are able to run a neutral line you will be able to use an ELV rated control. If you have any other questions our tech support team can be reached at support@lutron.com as well as over the phone at 1-844-LUTRON1 (588-7661).

    No. It is my understanding that such a dimmer is not technologically possible as it needs to reference the neutral to work correctly. I'm not an electrical engineer but that's what an engineer told me. Time to run a neutral. If you have 14/2 running from the fixture to the switch it would be relatively straightforward to switch that to 14/3, which will get you a neutral.
