Varilight V-COM Sku V-COM* VoltageSpecifications
AC standards for alternating current and DC standards for direct current.
Mains voltage is 230V AC and has a tolerance of 10%, some products are 220V or 240V AC which means they can be classed as mains voltage.
DC voltages usually require an LED driver to convert the mains voltage AC into low voltage DC. Popular DC voltages are 12V or 24V DC.

Ask a Product QuestionHi I have 12 led dimmable lights in my kitchen I have a standard dimmable light switch at the present which don’t really work very well it’s a standard domestic lights can you recommend or know of any type switch would lower the lights right the way down thanksQuestion by: Carl on 28 Apr 2022, 20:42The industry standard LED dimmer switch would be the Varilight V-Pro:
This has a maximum recommendation of 10 LEDs, so if you've got 12 on it, it might be causing you issues.
The V-Com can dim up to 30 LEDs, so should solve your problem.
The Zano module doesn't have any limitations neither and could get you a lower dimming range:

You'll need a mains dimmable LED driver that dims with leading edge. Such as these:
The wattage of the driver is determined by the total load of the LED tape and the voltage needs to match the LED tape. We can help you specify one or check you've got the right components.Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 17 Aug 2022, 13:14are vari lighy v com high rated led dimmers trailing edgeQuestion by: alex white on 27 Apr 2023, 19:17No, these are leading edge. Higher LED loads tend to work better on leading edge, over 100W for example.
These are up to 120w:
The Varilight Matrix range is available in higher wattages:
https://www.downlights.co.uk/customisable-dimmer-switch-varilight-matrix.htmlAnswer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 28 Apr 2023, 06:21My current standard LED rated dimmer switch has a long delay before the five dimmable LED lights come on after 2 to 3 seconds. Will the Varilight V Com Dimmer solve that issue and the lights be more instantaneous?Question by: David on 13 Oct 2023, 22:57This is the soft start functionality which prevents any inrush current and damage to your LEDs. It should only be around 1s time and I think this will have the same.Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 18 Oct 2023, 08:09What are the minimum loads on the V-Com dimmers?Question by: Stuart McKeggie on 13 Nov 2023, 08:21The minimum load for V-Com is 15WAnswer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 15 Nov 2023, 10:03Grabbed some downlights from this site. am very happy with them. Aurora bulbs. Varilight V Pro dimmer switch.
The lights flicker briefly during the soft start up and go into full on strobe mode at low dim. It’s only nut noticeable at full power.
What on earth is happening??Question by: Adam on 24 Nov 2023, 14:17Can you email the sales email with the order details so we can look into this for you? Also the number of lamps loaded onto the dimmer.Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 25 Nov 2023, 11:10
