Hi all. I've bought couple of LED tape kits which come with a 3pin 12v transformer. one of them is now wired into a simple circuit which is a single on/off switch and works great.
the second set is to go into another room, again single switch but this time it's a dimmer not toggle. The kit is not labelled as dimmable. Am I ok to use it on a dimmable circuit?

Thanks guys

Only if the driver is dimmable.

If it doesn't state dimmable I would doubt it

As above it's unlikely to work unless it's specifically designed as dimmable. You could just try it, it's unlikely to damage anything, most of the time you'll just get flashing or flicker if the drivcer isn't dimmable.
