I have a RA+, will the dimming ports work with the Kessil or do I need an expansion module?

Yes, it will as long as your dimming signal is analog

So I just need to buy the RA kessil cable? And connect it to one of the dimming ports?

Yes. But it uses both channels. One controls intensity and another color

Perfect. Exactly what I needed to know. So can you control the PWM as well? So to create a sunrise/sunset type effect?

Not with PWM signal. Kessil lights actually use analog signal.
But if you do have analog signal on the dimming channels, yes, you can control it to dim the lights.

Oh ok. So the kessils can dim from the RA+ dimming ports with the RA+ kessil cable?

Yes. Again, as long as your dimming signal is analog.
