Help with dimmer for LED undercabinet lighting profile powercore

ralphs95November 10, 2011

Hi everyone,

Thanks to davidtay and others, we just had the Philips Color Kinetics EW profile powercore LED undercabinet lights installed with our kitchen renovation.

They look good, but we're still trying to figure out the appropriate dimmer to install with the lights. We bought 2 Lutron Skylark Contour dimmers from Home Depot. They are electronic low voltage (ELV)and reverse phase and the only one Home Depot stocked. Our electrician is not familiar with the LED undercabinet lights (or dimmer)so he doesn't know which dimmer is best (compatible). From what I can find out the profile powercore calls for an ELV dimmer, so it should work, but I'm not sure about it.

Does anyone have experience with using a dimmer with the EW profile powercore LED undercabinet lights? We'll be using 2 separate dimmers (one for each run of cabinets - 3 fixtures each).

I assume that getting a dimmer for these lights is a good idea. Thanks for any advice or recommendations on the best dimmer selection for our install.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Use an ELV dimmer. I'm using the Lutron Diva (DVELV-300P-WH 300-Watt Diva Electronic Low Voltage Single Pole Dimmer) with eW powerCore MX lights (higher output LED lights intended for cove lighting)
