1-10V Rotary Dimmer for LED High Bay
Dimmer for LED Lights With 1-10V Dimming Input
This simple rotary dimmer is a cost-effective way to control LED lights with 1-10V dimmable analogue LED drivers. Unlike dimmers designed for 240V Mains AC dimming, this dimmer connects directly to the light's LED driver using low voltage DC wiring.
It's a popular choice for the Verbatim UFO LED High Bay. One dimmer can be wired to control multiple high bay lights.
Wiring For 1-10V Dimming
A simplified wiring diagram of CLA DIMERIS 1-10V rotary dimer is shown below. The dimmer is wired to a dedicated 10V input on the light's LED driver. Separately, the light's driver receives 240V AC mains power.

What About "0-10V" Dimming?
Controlling the brightness of LED lights directly at their driver is a smart choice. But figuring out what dimmer you need and can be confusing.
This dimmer will work on some 0-10V lights and systems. It is designed for current-sinking control systems. In other words, the light's driver provides the power for the dimming circuit and the dimmer is a passive device which reduces the voltage down from 10V DC as the dial is turned.
If your application is a current sourcing system (where the light's dimmer input is designed to receive power from an active dimmer) then this dimmer is not suitable.
If you're unsure, check that the light runs at full brightness with the dimming inputs in an open circuit state. Measure the dimmer input with a multimeter, it should show an open voltage reading of 10-20V DC.
