Dimmer Switches for 12v and 24v DC LED Lighting

PWM dimming for 12v LED lights - Kick-KR6

12v LED dimmers

Full range dimming and On / Off control for LEDs

The Kick KR6 offer pulse width modulation (PWM) dimming in a compact dimmer switch. Nothing else to buy. No DMX. Works with all of our 12-volt DC lighting and a 24 volt native version is available also. No matching of transformers or drivers. Full range dimming which low voltage dimmers can't do. As dim as you want it; 98% range.

FAQs for Kick KR6 Dimmer

Does the KR6 reduce the voltage going to the LED lights?

A: No. It works by reducing the current. Dimming by reduced voltage, as is done with incandescent lighting, is not recommended with LED since many LED products which are designed for 12vDC will not illuminate below 9-volts.

Can I use this in vehicles ? boats?

A: Yes! Thousands of these are now being used in vehicles and boats.  The KICK-KR6 is perfect for use in dimming panel lights or for RV interior lighting.

If I dim my lights really low will they flicker?

A: No. LEDs needs a constant current, in our case 12v DC. They don't turn off and on rapidly but rather fade off so when current is pulsed, as this dimmer does, the effect is less light output and less electricity consumed.

Where does this go in the wiring of the lights?

A: This dimmer must be wired after a transformer or power supply,  on the DC side. Dimmer switch will pulse 12v DC current so it has 12v DC current coming in and is outputting 12v DC current which is rapidly pulsed to produce dimming.
