Hi everyone!!!

I need some help. I’m looking for a dimmable 1-10v driver with a 240v input and 240v output. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Many Thanks

I think you're going to need to be a bit more specific.

From a brief Google, I've established that there are high frequency ballasts (for fluorescent tubes) that can be dimmed using a 1-10v signal. There are also LED drivers that can do the same.

Are you after a dimmer for say normal halogen lamps that can accept a 1-10v control voltage?

Yeah exactly that.

So you don’t need a dimmable driver, just a dimmer with 1-10V control?
Yeah.

I’ve got a Merrytek microwave sensor with dimming. I’ve uploaded a wire diagram of the sensor. And I wanted to run 4 x 240v downlighters but I can’t find the 1-10v control gear.
