The LED lighting we offer operates on 12 volts DC. While that makes it directly compatible with the power systems found on most RVs and boats, household installations require a power supply to convert standard 120 volt AC electrical power to 12 volts DC.

For white LEDs, there are two types of power supply to choose from based on how you want to control your lighting. The easiest installation, suitable for many retrofit projects, involves simply plugging a 12VDC Standard Power Supply into a household AC outlet. A DC dimmer or switch is an optional add-on that you would connect after the power supply.

If you want to use a standard in-wall AC dimmer switch to control your LED lighting, like those you might already have elsewhere in your home, choose an AC-Dimmable Power Supply. Note that installing this type of power supply is more involved, requiring a hard-wired connection to a 120VAC household circuit. For this reason, dimmable power supplies are typically used in larger renovation projects or new construction when you have the opportunity to access in-wall wiring more readily.

For all color-controlled (RGB) LEDs, choose a Standard Power Supply.
