Dimmable fixture with LEDs

What would be the simplest way to make a dimmable fixture with these LEDs. I've done a fair bit of electronics but I'm new to this sort of thing and not completely comfortable with the terminology. Thanks

    Simplest method of creating a fixture that is dimmable is to use our line of Inventronics drivers.

    They include the power source and driver.  You plug them right into the wall.  They are easily dimmed with your favorite controller like the APEX or DIM4.  Or if you prefer you can use a basic POT to dim them.

    Just to let future readers know these drivers will not dim smoothly from 100% to total darkness. These drivers even on 0 volts on the dimming input still provide what looks like a fairly bright output and a shut off is relay or switch must be used to turn off power to the driver and darkness.

    To the eye when dimming this looks like dimming from 100% to about 50% then darkness...

    That is correct Paul.  The Inventronics drivers dim 10%-100%.  If you are looking to dim from 0-100% then you can use the MakersDRIVERS located here: http://www.ledgroupbuy.com/makersdriver-professional-grade-dimmable-led-driver/

    They have a few nice features such as built in POTs for fine tune dimming, fan power and fan power failure alert.

    Yes they look really neat with some great features. Wish you had these last year before I spent $600 on the inventrics ones............
