0-10 volt dimmer

0-10 volt dimmer

0-10 volt dimmer

Does anyone know of a small receiver unit that is 24 volt input to power it and is a simple rheostat dimmer controlled by a remote control. I'm hoping the receiver unit can have something like dip switches so that one remote control can control several receiver units. I'd like to be able to install a receiver unit in several LED lights on the 0-10 volt dimming wires, set the dip switches to match the remote control, then control all the units with the one remote control.

RE: 0-10 volt dimmer

This is not very helpful, but typically dimmers don't use rheostats -- it's terribly inefficient. They use some form of chopping the power supplied to the light, with a triac or pulse-width modulator. That way the control element is always fully on or off so it doesn't use any power.

To answer your question, though, no I don't know. But maybe it will help to not use the term "rheostat" in your search.

RE: 0-10 volt dimmer

I believe that the OP's question relates to 0-10v dimmers.
