Thread: LMJ or Hi-Lume for controlling DiodeLED Tape

  1. #1

    LMJ or Hi-Lume for controlling DiodeLED Tape

    Can anybody give me some input on controlling under and over cabinet led tape that's running on a 12-24v driver? I would like to get rid of the driver and prob just use a Hi-lume driver and dim it with a 6NA (one of the options for hi-lume is forward phase dimming to 1%). Seems like the more straight forward solution... not sure if it will have fade on fade off tho... Thanks in adavace

    We have some tape LED's tied to some overhead LED pucks in our wine room, connected to a driver, all controlled this way. I can't see the unit right now, but I'll look later on and post it. I think the LED tape was picked up at Home Depot.

    They both dim and ramp nicely.

    Yeah would be nice if you could let me know what driver it's using and dimmer.

    The transformer is a WAC Lighting class 2 power unit, model EN-2460-RB2 (input 120v, output 24v, 60w max, 1w min). We're only using about 6' of the LED tape, and there are 7 WAC LED pucks installed in the ceiling.

    The dimmer switch in the wine room is a RRD-6NA-WH (also controlled by a 6 button hybrid keypad).

    You can see the puck lights, and the LED tape light is below the tiled counter, above the long wine rods.

    Mister C- keep an eye on that dimmer with the WAC driver. I've had HORRIBLE luck with dimming anything WAC with RA2. Works great on Diva, but horrible with all sorts of the digital (Maestro/RA2/Caseta) dimmers.

    OK, will do. We've had zero problems to date, but I'll watch for it.

    Any electronic driver you could recommend for my application other than WAC?

    I was using a cheap dimmable Magnetic from Westgate with a 10ND. For the absolute best performance, use either the Hi-Lume from Lutron or one of the DC drivers from Q-tran.
