Varilight Touch Dimmer Series Classic Polished Chrome (also known as Classic Mirror Chrome), 1 Gang (Single), 1 Way (or multi-way if used with slave dimmer), 400 Watt Touch Only Dimmer, with Trailing Edge Technology, (For Mains and Almost All Low Voltage Applications)VARILIGHT Dimmer Switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices. This VARILIGHT Touch Dimmer Series has many more advanced features than other Trailing Edge dimmer switches: the lights can be dimmed from any location, (if used with a Slave dimmer), rather than only from the dimmer location.
Like all our products the Touch Dimmer Series are designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
This Touch Dimmer is dimmed by touch only.
The Touch dimmer is equipped with Self Re-setting Overload Protection, so is able to handle overload situations, for example, if the wattage of the bulbs/lamps are accidentally too high on a circuit. This is achieved by the dimmer cutting out before there is any damage, (if the watts are grossly overloaded), until the load is reduced. This Touch dimmer series also contains a heat sensor which again stops damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot.
The Touch Dimmer Series has Soft Start Technology, allowing a longer life span of the bulbs or lamps used by increasing the brightness level softly, which also creates a welcoming effect.
These Touch Dimmers can be used in 1-way, 2-way, 3-way or even multi-way circuits. When using the Touch Dimmers in 2-way circuits or more, they should be used with Slave Dimmers in the other switch locations. In every circuit there should be only one Touch Master Dimmer, and then any number of Slave Dimmers. This Touch Series can be used where there is conventional two-way or multi-way wiring.
The Touch Dimmer Series can be used for mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs), up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer. They can also dim GU10 or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps (only use quality UK supplied lamps) up to the maximum load as specified on dimmer. Good quality Dimmable Electronic Transformers can also be dimmed using this dimmer, please note that noise levels can depend on the quality of the Transformer being used.
When using Electronic Low Voltage transformers we recommend that a maximum of 5 good quality Dimmable Electronic Transformers are used (10 if Varilight) with this Dimmer range. Please note: add the Watts of the bulbs/lamps if using Varilight Transformers, to determine which dimmer to select, but if using another manufacturer of Transformer, add up the VA of the Transformers so it does not exceed the maximum of the dimmer.
This Touch Series, can dim Varilight Energy Saving Lamps (ESL's), here is the Varilight buying guide: 250 Watt = 1-12 ESL's, 400 Watt = 1-15 ESL's, 600 Watt = 1-20 ESL's. This dimmer series will not dim Megaman ESL's.
Please note, Touch Dimmers are not suitable for use with wire-wound Low Voltage Transformers, Fans or inductive loads, choose the V-Plus Intelligent Dimmer Series or alternatively look at the 630 Watt Low Voltage Standard Dimmer and Fan dimmer for these applications.
Please check with the manufacturer that the appliance is dimmable.
Choose the V-Pro Dimmer Series instead, if dimming LED's or to eliminate Dimmer Buzz, created from Dimmable Electronic Transformers.
