# Is this dimmer compatible a DC 12v power supply? [duplicate]

This power supply is used for LED strip lights I recently purchased. I want to know if the dimmer below can be used with the power supply. The PS is AC 100-240v (IN) to DC 12v (OUT), while the dimmer is DC 12-24v (IN/OUT), based on my intuition, this should work.

• THe Dimmer that is.... but are you sure LEDs take 50W? – Sunnyskyguy EE75 Feb 1 '18 at 0:44
• The power supply is included with the LED lights kit, so I'm not concerned about it not working, my concern was the dimmer because it's generic and made by a different manufacturer. – raffian Feb 1 '18 at 0:53
• OK then its less than 24W which sounds right for a 5m reel. no problem on dimmer. – Sunnyskyguy EE75 Feb 1 '18 at 1:02
• Tony, does it matter how the wires from the power supply connect to the dimmer IN input? – raffian Feb 1 '18 at 1:30
