Schluter®-LIPROTEC-ECX is an all-in-one LED power supply and in-wall dimmer switch. It offers smooth, even dimming with a dimming range of 5% to 100%. LIPROTEC-ECX can control multiple KERDI-BOARD-SNLT niches (up to 60 watts). Additionally, it includes three interchangeable face plates to match most decors.
LIPROTEC-ECX requires no special maintenance.

Do we need to use all three LIPROTEC components? Can I use another driver, LED, or wire?
The LIPROTEC system is specifically designed to work together and is UL listed as a system. The cable and gland seal the wire outlet hole. The LED connectors are...Read more
Why is my LIPROTEC LED flashing?
The driver is overloaded or overheated. Check the sum of wattage on the driver and make sure it is below the rated output (LIPROTEC-ECX: 60W or...Read more
What are the benefits of the LIPROTEC-ECX driver vs the LIPROTEC-ECD?
LIPROTEC-ECX is an all-in-one solution with one connection point to run from the junction box directly to the LED.Read more
Why do we need to separate the low and high voltage?
NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC) requires high and low-voltage circuits to be run and connected separately. This is for safety reasons...Read more
Can I run more than one LED to the LIPROTEC-ECX driver?
Yes. The LED light is 1.7 watts and the LIPROTEC-ECX control is rated up to 60 watts. This means that you can run up to 30 niches on the LIPROTEC-ECD...Read more
Can the LIPROTEC-ECX integrate with my smart home?
No, only the LIPROTEC-ECD driver can be used with smart dimmers.Read more
Do I need special wiring for the LIPROTEC-ECX?
No, but the LIPROTEC-ECX needs to have the rough in wiring for high voltage (120V AC) on a particular end (the bottom) of the junction box, otherwise...Read more
Does the LIPROTEC-ECX need to be on its own circuit?
No, the LIPROTEC system can be jumped off an existing lighting circuit if needed. Contact your local electrician for guidance and code compliance.Read more
Can the LIPROTEC-ECX be installed in a double gang box, along side an existing switch?
Yes, but a voltage barrier or divider (not included) needs to be installed between the two switches. Contact your local electrician for guidance and...Read more
Can I pull power from my DITRA-HEAT or other floor heating circuit to power my LIPROTEC LED?
No. Floor heating should be on a dedicated circuit. You also increase the risk of accidentally miswiring the lighting into a 240V circuit.Read more
Does the LIPROTEC-ECX need to be on a GFCI circuit?
No. GFCIs are typically not used on a light circuit but this will not affect the performance of the LIPROTEC system.Read more
Can I connect the LIPROTEC-ECX to 240V power?
No. This will damage the driver and void the warranty. The driver is rated for single-phase 110VAC-120VAC power.Read more
What would happen to the LIPROTEC system in case of a power surge or brownout?
Both Schluter drivers have built-in protection against power fluctuations and will shut down in either of the situations listed above.Read more
What if my LIPROTEC LED turns on but doesn't dim?
The slider is misaligned. Remove the faceplate on the ECX. Slide the black dimming lever on the ECX housing to the bottom and the face plate slider to...Read more
I have verified a 120V input to my power supply and 24V output but my LIPROTEC LED still does not illuminate. What should I do?
Ensure that the low voltage (+ and -) connections are correct and not reversed. The connections should be...Read more
