Anyone have ideas on where I can acquire an inline dimmer that is robust enough to work with Aquasky LED?
I am using Ecoxotic dimmer at the moment as the LED is way too bright for me without a dimmer.
However, the Ecoxotic although rated at 60w at 24v doesn't seem to be robust enough to optimally work with the LED. It produces a hum when LED brightness is reduced by more than 20%.
As far as I can tell, Aquasky consumes 900ma at 30w. So, I THINK the Ecoxotic is robust enough at least on paper, but it isn't.
I've only found a few dimmers that seem more robust:
12V 8A Inline Dimmer
DIM12C - Inline Rotary LED Dimmer
Some barrel connector pig tails will have to be made with the first one. The second one is only available in UK i think.
Are there any off the shelf products that you know of that might work?
BTW, I bought the Aquasky because every other aquarium LED is way too blue for me even those that claim to use 6000k. So, I am pretty much stuck with Aquasky as it's the only LED that I know of that produces a light spectrum that's comfortable to my eyes. However, the brightness is way too high...
Oh, I also light the StarkLED I saw at the same store as well. But, the brackets needed to install over a 60P is too industrial and a bit unstable looking. There are pigtails on both ends of the LED enclosure just like Truelumen does which isn't clean looking to me. If there weren't the case, I actually prefer the Stark over the Aquasky.
