Hi,

Today I bought a 3 volts led to remplace the light in my Westach OAT. At the shop, they suggest me to put an resistance on my 12 volts circuit. I installed the dimmer with potentiometer to control my instrument lights. Does I need to install the resistance or not?
I enclosed a picture of my dimmer.

Daniel

Assuming that the dimmer is capable of outputting 14 volts at full brightness, then yes,
I would install a 560 ohm resistor in series with the LED to prevent damaging it.
If the LED does not get bright enough, you can always replace the resistor with a smaller value.
