3-way dimmer for mvl and led?

Posted by attofarad (My Page) on

I plan to use Magnitude transformers for my LED strips for ceiling cove lighting. This will be 3-way control, and I would prefer to be able to have true dimming from each end. It seems that most setups have a dimmer at one location, and a switch at the other end.

The Lutron Maestro offers dimming from each end, but the MLV version isn't on Magnitude's list.

Any other good dimmers out there for that?

I will also be installing LED zones (probably populated with CR4 and/or CR6), some of which will also need 3-way dimmers with dimming on both ends. Again, the typical Maestro dimmers are not on Lutron's list or Cree's list, although the more expensive RF version is. Will the regular Maestro dimmer work for CR6's? Is there another one that will provide dimming from both ends?

You have to use a remote dimming system to allow dimming from more than a single location.

One unit contains a receive and the actual dimming hardware, all the others communicate with the 'master' unit by radio.
