LED Dimmer Triac/QUADRAC Thyristors


Littelfuse offers robust switching performance for AC line-based LED dimmer applications

The Q6008LH1LED and Q6012LH1LED series of AlternistorTriac, and the Q6008LTH1LED and Q6012LTH1LED series of QUADRAC thyristor power control devices are designed for use as the switch in a dimmer circuit to adjust the light output of light emitting diode (LED) bulbs and strings. They allow designers of AC line-based dimmers for LED lighting to accommodate a wide range of operating parameters without sacrificing reliability, and without degrading the performance of the dimmer. As a result, a single control device can be used for LED-based dimmers or for combination dimmers designed for incandescent, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), and LED loads.
