My LET 60 DL transformer has a "dimming loop" and your wiring instructions do not show this. How is this connected?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 3, 2013
The dimming loop on your transformer is for connecting to a potentiometer, not a wall dimmer.
If you are going to wire to a wall dimmer, simply connect the line voltage to the dimmer, then connect the dimmer to the input wires of the transformer (black and white wires). Then the blue wires connect to the lighting load.

Can you use this for LED lights on an electronic low voltage transformer? It says Xenon or halogen. If not, what dimmer is for LED?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on February 12, 2014
Answer:Yes, if the LED lights are dimmable by an electronic low voltage dimmer. The product description will indicate the type of dimmer that can be used with it. If not, check with the manufacturer of the LED lights and ask for the recommended dimmer list.
Please note that LED dimming technology varies widely and there are many different ways manufacturers recommend dimming LEDs.

Can the dimmer mechanism be separated from the plate, or is the plate and dimmer manufactured as a solid unit?
I already have a Lutron plate and would simply like to install the dimmer.

The wall plate picture is NOT included, so you would only be purchasing the actual dimmer switch.

If there is not a neutral in the our existing wall box wiring setup, can I still use this dimmer without the neutral? Is there danger in that? I have an existing Lutron dimmer that is not for low voltage function. Can I use my old dimmer? Or maybe skip the dimmer all together?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 25, 2014
No, you should not skip the neutral wire. It's never wise to take any chances with electrical wiring.
You may be able to use a line voltage dimmer instead but it completely depends on the lighting system. If you have the components, test it out and see how the dimmer works!

I have a WAC Lighting rail system that uses an electronic transformer. There are five 12V MR16-G 50 Watt bulbs on the rail. The instructions say "if dimming, an electronic low voltage dimmer is recommended". Is this the correct dimmer for my application?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 13, 2012
Yes, this dimmer is correct for your application - as long as the rail system is the only fixture connected to the dimmer. If you are connecting any additional lights, you will need a higher load.
By Cedric from Longmont, CO on September 13, 2012
Answer:This dimmer is definitely suitable for your application, this specific dimmer (as any other Lutron ELV dimmer) is specifically designed for working with electronic low voltage transformers (needed for MR16). My company produces an LED MR16 module for OEM manufacturers and I bought specifically these dimmers for tests and trade shows for illustration of compatibility. The Diva is a great product.

Can I use this dimmer to control a Low voltage transformer circuit plus a circuit with regular line voltage lights or do I need to control them with separate dimmers?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on February 1, 2013
I would use separate dimmers...
an ELV dimmer for your electronic transformer
a line voltage dimmer for the line voltage lights
