    Hi 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 thanks
    Question by: Carl on 28 Apr 2022, 20:42
    The industry standard LED dimmer switch would be the Varilight V-Pro:

    https://www.downlights.co.uk/varilight-led-dimmer-switches.html
    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:

    Will this Varilight KQP221W also work on LED Strips?
    Question by: Derick on 17 Aug 2022, 13:04
    Yes, but technically it works with the LED driver. You'll need a mains dimmable LED driver that dims with leading edge. Such as these:

    https://www.downlights.co.uk/accessories.html?type_of_product=LED%20Driver&dimmable=Yes&operation_mode=Constant%20Voltage

    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.

    are vari lighy v com high rated led dimmers trailing edge
    Question by: alex white on 27 Apr 2023, 19:17
    No, 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:

    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 28 Apr 2023, 06:21
    My 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, 22:57
    This 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, 08:09
    What are the minimum loads on the V-Com dimmers?
