dimming halogen lights
I installed a 4 ft track lighting fixture with three GU10 spots (bulbs have pins)on it. It was a kit from a big box store. I told the guy I was going to install a dimmer, he was adamant that I needed a low voltage dimmer (it required three wires) and the setup works great.
I then went and bought another 4 ft setup with three PAR 20 halogen fixtures 50W bulbs (these screw in with what looks like a standard socket). I purchased all the components separately. I wanted a dimmer here also, but I wasn't sure if I needed the low voltage typ again or if a standard dimmer would work.
I bought a dimmer that says "Incandescent/Halogen 120V 600W"
It's a Lutron S-600PH-WH
The lights are Portfolio Track Lights. Flared Gimbal Track Lights #120700. Bulbs are Sylvania PAR20 50W floods
It doesn't have the third wire and instead connects inline just like any other dimmer/switch. It seems to work fine. Is this a proper setup or should I get a low voltage one?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
