Triac Dimming Constant Voltage LED Driver

Triac dimming is a type of dimming technology used to control the brightness of constant voltage LED drivers. Triac dimming works by modulating the AC voltage waveform that is supplied to the LED driver. The dimmer switches the AC voltage on and off at a rapid pace, effectively controlling the amount of power that is delivered to the LED driver. This results in a reduction in the brightness of the connected LED lights.

Triac dimming is widely used for residential and commercial lighting applications due to its compatibility with a wide range of dimmer switches and its ability to handle higher loads compared to other dimming technologies such as pulse width modulation (PWM) and resistance dimming.

However, it's important to note that not all LED drivers are compatible with triac dimming and some may require specific types of dimmer switches to work properly. It's also crucial to choose an LED driver that is designed for triac dimming, as some drivers may not have the necessary circuitry to handle the rapid on-off switching of the AC voltage waveform.
