Digital MLV Dimmers - What Transformers Work?

Posted by schicksal (My Page) on

I've been looking at a lot of 24V LED power supplies and noticed that none of them are compatible with digital MLV dimmers - they're analog only. Are there any out there that are compatible with digital dimmers? The reason I ask is because all the other dimmers in the kitchen are digital and I've been trying to avoid mixing and matching in our 4 gang boxes.

Sorry if this is a repeat - I searched previous threads and didn't find anything on the subject.

Do you mean something like the Lutron Maestro Digital Fade MLV dimmer?

Yes, that's exactly what I was hoping to use but the compatibility list for transformers advertised as dimmable includes only analog dimmers. The Lutron Diva DVLV is the closest in appearance to the Maestros that are in the same wall box that these will be installed in.

I'm sure there's something out there but I'm having a lot of trouble finding it.

You could contact lutron's support line to find out if they have new recommendations.

Ok - it's looking like that's probably the best/only option. You probably found the same PDF I came across buried on their website. :)

I have to admit, their site is really disorganized with regard to finding technical information and manuals. Using Google instead of their internal search is the only way to go.

Not quite - I found out the hard way several years ago...
