Product Overview

The Armacost Lighting 60 Watt; 12 Volt Universal Dimming LED Power Supply delivers stable and energy-efficient, low-voltage power to any LED lighting installation. The LED lighting driver is designed using high-performance, professional grade electronics that provide stable 0 or 100% dimming free of any "pop-on" or "drop-off". The power supply is rated up to 60-watts at 12-volts. For the best results use Armacost Lighting LED lights, switches and dimming light controls. Plug-in or hardwire with detachable AC power cord. Suitable for both dry and damp locations. Includes: 1) 60W, 12V Power Supply, 1) Detachable AC Power Cord
  • Smooth, full range, flicker-free dimming
  • Compatible with BOTH 120 Volt AC dimmers and lighting controls and low-voltage DC dimmers and controls
  • Connect up to 100% of the rated 60-watt maximum load - derating performance is not required
  • No minimum power load; dimming works equally well whether powering a single 3-watt LED puck light or 60 watts of tape lighting, or a combination of both
  • For optimal AC dimming performance, use a forward phase CL-style or equivalent dimmer. The use of reverse phase or ELV may degrade dimming performance.
  • Class 2 power supply features overload protection, automatic shut-off
  • Limited 3-year warranty
  • ETL listed for dry or wet location use
  • Limited 3-year warranty

Awesome 12v dimmable LED driver!
I did under cabinet LED light strip tape (about 12 feet) with this power supply connected to a Lutron Caséta lamp dimmer module. LED’s have perfect full dimming range and no flicker to the eye at any dimmed setting. Power supply barely gets warm which is nice too. Highly recommend!

    Armacost Lighting's 60 Watt Universal Dimming LED Driver uses an integrated microprocessor to automatically sense and optimize dimming performance based on the load used. This electronic, solid-state power supply is also compatible with Armacost low-voltage 12-volt DC dimmers and RGB LED lighting controllers on the output side. It is suitable for dry and damp locations. A standard 120- volt AC dimmer can be directly wired to this LED Driver or to multiple LED Drivers on the input side. A 12-volt dimmer or RGB controller can be connected to the DC output side of the LED Driver to power different types of LED lighting equipment i.e. mini lights, tape lighting and puck lights. This Driver comes equipped with a electrical cord and plug on the input side. To obtain access to the input and output terminal block connectors there are end caps that are screwed down and need to be removed to get access to the screw terminals. The terminal connectors will accept 18 as well as 14 gauge wire. This lighting driver also comes in a 24-volt size.

    First, let me admit that I've yet to install this device and, depending on the LEDs I eventually choose for my deck renovation [delayed due to Covid-19], I may or may not require an LED driver ... but I suspect I will and I'll need more than one. With that out of the way, let me tell you that this product is designed to be a constant 12V power supply for a run of LEDs which consume no more than 60 watts [that would be 5 amps @ 12V]. Depending on the length of the 14 ga low-voltage wire up to the first LED [and possibly between LEDs if they're wired individually], you could find that you're not getting full brightness. [I say 14 ga because while the instructions say 18 ga, the device will accept the heavier wire ... and a heavier wire here is your friend]. On the input side, my device came with a 6" power cord. That can be easily removed and hard-wired to 14 ga ROMEX [no ground wire required]. The device is not rated for "wet locations" [typical when outdoors]. Since mine will be installed under the deck where it'll be subject to rain, I'll put it in a vented enclosure. The complications I expect to encounter will be in the dimming arena. There's a lot to read here and there are restrictions along with flexibilities. Compatibility is the primary issue. It took us 50 years to rid ourselves of the ballast issues with fluorescents ... now LEDs come along and we see that "ballast-type" issues are being reintroduced ... grumble grumble. These drivers are like ballasts ... they age and die. Physically, it's compact and streamlined ... sleek actually ... looks like a white ballast with chamfered ends.

    One of the nicest features of this transformer - besides its compact size, sleek lines, sealed construction, robust labeling and simplified mounting - is the fact that it can be plugged in, or hard wired without the addition of an electrical junction box. See photographs 1 and 2. The opposite end has a similar junction which readily attaches the LED strip adapter (leads). See photograph 3. I used this combination to produce under cabinet lighting. See photograph 4. The end result is a simple upgrade to my kitchen lighting that provides both ambient and task lighting. See photograph 5.

    In it's defense this driver worked fine. It dimmed my under cabinet lighting. What I didn't like was instead of having a male end for an outlet, you had to hardwire directly to the driver. Which I didn't like mainly because the 14-2 Romex I used barely fit where the terminals we're located.

    This Armacost Driver is the Best!
    Once again, if you want a truly professional LED lighting installation — under counter, outdoor deck stairs or railings, etc. — you need the Armacost Universal Dimming LED Driver/Power Supply. It is very easy to install, due to its small size, easy to wire to both AC power input, and 12 VDC output. It comes with an attached 2-prong AC cord, but that can be removed for hard wiring. It mounts with two small screws via via built in ears. This power supply is very quiet, and dims with no pops or flares in the lights. Yes, it is expensive, but it will out last and out perform the cheaper ones on the market. Youll save money in the long run, both in the quality of the product, and the consistiemt voltage output to your lighting strings.
