Dan,

I'm assuming the control can be mounted behind a cover or plywood. Is the knob shaft long enough to go through 1/4" plywood?

On the RF model, can you have more than one installed, and not have them interfere with each other?

Chris

Chris
The shaft is 1/2 in. long without the knob. With the knob on, the clearance is 3/16 in. The shaft is tapered so you might need to put a little putty on it to insure you won't loose the knob over time if you wanted to put in behind a a 1/4in. piece of plywood.


Good question. Thanks for asking.

Thanks Dan - that helps me come up with an idea for our trailer.

What about the RF version question? I'm not really interested in a remote control, but others might be and might want to put multiple units in they can control separately.

Chris,

Sorry it took me so long to get back on here. I did a video so you could see it. Yes you can use the two dimmers in series.

Hi Dan,

The way I interpreted Chris' question was not if you could use two in series, but rather that if you have multiple RF units controlling different LED lights, is there a way to control them individually? That is, can you change channels to keep one remote from interfering with the other LED receiver(s)?

That's my question anyway.

Thanks guys, that went over me head.

I'll look into one that I can get that will do what your looking for. What I'm reading about it says it will. I'll get back to you on it.

However, I hooked up two of the "PWM Dimmer RF Controlled 12 Volt , # 12VRFDim" controllers and one remote worked both of them at the same time. It also works inside the a wooden cabinet.

Some devices that use RF to transmit signals for control have tiny DIP switches inside them to alter the code used in order to avoid, say, dimming your neighbour's lights, or vice versa.

Have you had a look inside to see if such is the case with this model? Of course, the transmitter AND the receiver would have to have them.
