    Hi Guys,
    Could someone please tell me if a Lutron Grafik Eye 3106 can be used with low voltage downlights.
    Cheers.

    You can use them with low voltage down lights, however you need to make sure the transformer is compatible, I pretty sure they have to be 'leading edge' type electronic transformers. There are a few PDF's on Lutron website that explain the types of loads that can be driven and the extra interfaces that are required, I will try and search out the relevant one as the site is not very users friendly.

    Yes, it is a Leading Edge dimmer, so the relevant Transformer to this is required. This is a good thing though, as it is easy to buy the cheap trailing edge transformers which are a pile of imported poo, and will force you to buy something half decent!
