Hello. I need 0-10V Dimmable for LED Pendant Light
Nov 14, 2017

Customer always need 0-10V dimmable driver for LED pendant light. But what is 0-10V dimming?

Control Type: 0-10V

0-10V is an analog lighting control protocol. Basically, a 0-10V control applies a voltage between 0 and 10 volts DC to produce a varying intensity level. There are actually two existing 0-10V standards. They are not compatible with each other, so it is essential to understand which type is required.  The original 0-10V control was used for controlling theatrical lighting. A lighting console provides a separate 0-10V output for each dimming.

0-10V is an analog lighting control protocol.

The standard requires that the ballast (or driver)  provides full light output when the control voltage is 10 Volts (or above). As the control voltage is reduced by the control, the light level is reduced. At a control voltage of 1 volt, the ballast (driver) provides it’s minimum light level.  Any voltage less than 1 volt is defined as minimum.
