I just hung my chandelier. I want to hook it up to a dimmer switch. Before doing so, I would like to confirm the compatibility.
The chandelier is low voltage halogen. It has a 12V electronic transformer and states that it is dimmable. The chandelier contains 9 X 20 watt G-9 Bi Pin Base Halogen bulbs. It states the voltage is line voltage (120 volts). My home is on 120V.
The dimmer switch is an electronic dimmer. It supports up to 600 watts and uses a 12 amp triac dimmer.
I think everything checks out, but the whole electronic dimmer vs. magnetic dimmer thing confuses me. If I have a chandelier with a low voltage electronic transformer than don't I need an electronic dimmer? Do the above specs check out?
