Hi Folks,

I am looking for something which I thought would be an obvious product.

I need a mains dimmable 24v LED driver of at least 80w, it seems at the moment that I need two devices for each 5m strip.

Any ideas?

I assume you are looking for a constant current driver. Try RS Components part number 722-7980. C

I'm sure the aurora ones are dimmable and they are IP65, I can't remember the ratings though, it's been a couple of years since we used them.

Cheers, but I am looking for Constant Voltage, I normally use the aurora AU-LED5012CV but this range is not dimmable and stops at 50W.

The only aurora ones I have come across are 24v-24v which means an additional upfront driver.

I can't easily find the part number tonight Marytn but they are 240-24 and I'm 99% certain they were dimmable because pretty much every led in the building was dimmed to some extent. If I get a chance tomorrow I'll phone the wholesaler that supplied them and get them to dig back for me.

We also used some big (read expensive) dmx controlled drivers which were 48v to drive long lengths of strip but they were silly money.

There are limits to dimming lengths of tape over 4 m.

We've used these before with RAKO wireless control
Not 24V I know. I'd be interested in the solution you find for your problem.
