FAQs for this product

Where does this go in the wiring of the lights?

A: This dimmer must be wired after a transformer. 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.

Does the KR8 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.

I already have Lutron dimmers in the wall. Why can't I just use those?

A: Standard wall dimmers work by reducing the voltage available to incandescent lights. They don't work with fluorescent or LED lighting. Line voltage dimmable transformers like the ones made by Magnitude can be used with Lutron dimmersmade for low voltage magnetic transformers. Many of these switches are designated with model numbers that include "LV". The Lutron Diva is a very popular option. Model is DVLV and sells for about $40.
