1 Gang (Single), 1 or 2 Way or Multi-way 400 Watt V-Pro Touch/Remote Master Dimmer, (Trailing Edge), Classic White Dimmer

Varilight 1 Gang (Single), 1 Way (or multi-way if used with slave dimmer), 1x400 Watt V-Pro Series Touch/Remote Master Dimmer, with Trailing Edge Technology, but this can now be adjusted to Leading Edge. (For Mains, ESL's, GU10's and Almost All Low Voltage Applications, as well as most good quality dimmable LED's). This Dimmer Series features scene setting and zonal lighting using a Universal Remote handset. VARILIGHT dimmer switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices. The VARILIGHT V-Pro (Professional Universal) Touch and Remote Dimmer Series has been perfectly designed to dim a range of different fittings including GU10's, ESL's, and especially good for most quality dimmable LED lamps.

This dimmer can be used in many applications, like Retirement and Nursing Homes, commercial premises, Bars, Nightclubs as well as domestic households. The V-Pro Touch/Remote Dimmers are equipped with an internal remote control detector, giving the dimmer buttons that sleek style. Multiple Location placement: The lights can be dimmed from any location, (if used with Slave dimmers), rather than only one location when using standard dimmerswitches.

Like all our products the V-Pro Touch and Remote Dimmer Series are designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.

As the name suggests, you can dim these dimmers by touch or alternatively using a remote control (Remote control sold seperately: YRC8 or YRE8).

The dimmers are easily programmable so it is possible to dim your lights with a spare button on an existing remote control, for example a Sky or TV remote. Instructions on how to achieve this are included with the dimmer, and a PDF is displayed in "Specs & PDF's" section. If more than one Touch and Remote Dimmer is being used, the optional Varilight 8-channel Remote Control is available (product code YRC8 or YRE8).

The V-Pro Touch and Remote 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. The dimmer achieves this by cutting out before there is any damage, (if the watts are grossly overloaded), until the load/lamps are reduced. This V-Pro Touch and Remote dimmer series also contains a heat sensor which again stops damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot.

The V-Pro Touch and Remote Dimmer Series have a 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.

V-Pro Classic Dimmers can be used in 1-way, 2-way, 3-way or even multi-way circuits.

When using the V-Pro Classic Touch and Remote 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 V-Pro Classic Touch and Remote Master Dimmer, and then any number of Slave Dimmers.

The V-Pro Classic Touch and Remote 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), for recommended maximum loads of these lamps and all others, please see PDF instructions in "Specs & PDF's". 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. Choose the V-Pro Series to eliminate Dimmer Buzz, created from Dimmable Electronic Transformers.

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.

Choose V-Pro Dimmer Series if dimming LED's.

This V-Pro Classic Touch and Remote Series, single, double, triple, and quadruple dimmers, can dim 1 or 2 Varilight Energy Saving Lamps (ESL's). Choose the V-Pro Knob Dimmers if you need to dim more ESL lamps ( The V-Pro Series were primarily designed for Dimmable LED's, the dimmers, with a minimum load of only 10 Watts, can operate from 1-10 (up to 100W) good quality Dimmable LED's. If the dimmable LED's are not good quality (light flickering may occur) then an Active Load Module (Z2ACTIVELOAD) must be purchased and wired into the live side before the transformer. This will improve most non compatible products.

The V-Pro Series Dimmers can also be used for Mains Voltage Lighting, Trailing Edge Loads, and Electronic Low Voltage Transformers

These V-Pro Eclique dimmers are Trailing Edge by default, but this can be adjusted to Leading Edge, please see instructions provided with the dimmer or the PDF instuctions in "Specs and PDFs".

The V-Pro dimmers have had numerous software updates since it's existence, mainly to improve LED stability but also to add ingenious functions too. Please check the instructions of this product on our website for improvement details.

Please note V-Pro Classic Touch and Remote 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.

This Dimmer has a maximum of 400 Watts per dimming module (100 Watts for LEDs) and minimum of 10 Watts.

These dimmers do not work with lighting panels (LED or CFL).

Please note that only good quality dimmable LEDs should be used. If this dimmer is purchased and the LED lamps are not compatible, the dimmer is not faulty so can not be returned, but a better quality LED lamp/bulb should be fitted instead. As a rule, buy the V-Pro dimmers and LEDs from us to make sure all is compatible.

We only sell products that have the latest software updates, our PDF instruction manuals are updated regulary and refer to the product that is being sold.
