Dimmer Switche for Running 9 7W LED Bulbs

Postby JimboX » Wed Jan 03, 2018 5:24 pm

Hi. I'm looking to run 9 x 7w LED dimmable bulbs (equivalent to 65w halogens) from a dimmer switch. What rating and type of dimmer switch do I need for this set up please?

For LED lamps which are dimable you need a "Trailing edge" dimmer switch that has a higher rating than the total wattage of the lamps to be dimmed.
