Dimmable LED strip tape is not just one individual product, it's made up of the following three components:1. LED strip tape
LED Strip Tape
You can use almost any version of LED strip tape as long as you have the full set of components. If you want to dim colour changing RGB LED tape then you dim and control this using the controller, which means you need a non dimmable LED driver to power it.
As long as you have a single colour version of LED strip tape such as warm white, colour white or blue etc you can dim it using these components.
Mains Dimmable LED Driver
We offer a selection of mains dimmable LED drivers that range from a miniature 3W version up to a big 200W version. Each is available in 12V DC and 24V DC outputs. There are other styles of dimmable drivers available such as 0-10V, DALI and DMX but if you want to dim LED tape with a normal dimmer switch then mains dimming which also known as TRIAC is the best and often most economical option to go for.
LED Compatible Dimmer Switch
An LED compatible dimmer switch needs to be either trailing edge or leading edge. This can include home automation systems such as Lutron Grafik Eye, Rako, Lightwave RF and many more. For a basic LED dimmer switch, the Varilight V-Pro will dim up to 100 watts of LED tape. For longer runs or bigger loads you'd need the Varilight V-Com and a bigger LED driver.
