VARILIGHT Dimmer Switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices.
The VARILIGHT V-Pro Series Dimmer, like all our products, is designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
This Euro VariGrid Range are part of a mix and match set, that comprises of 20 different inserts, put together in your own configuration. You needn't stop there, because if required you can mix different colour face plates and inserts to create your own unique blend of coolness in your home or office.
The V-Pro Series were primarily designed for Dimmable LED's, the dimmers, with a minimum load of only 2 Watts, can operate at least 1-10 good quality Dimmable LED's.
These Dimmers can also be used to operate upto 8 Varilight (YCA20D) or Megaman Dimmable Energy Saving Lamps, (Please refer to the instruction leaflet of the Megaman lamps for usage tips).
The V-Pro Series Dimmers can be used for Mains Voltage Lighting, Trailing and Leading Edge Loads, and Electronic Low Voltage Transformers. The V-Pro Series, eliminates Dimmer Buzz For GLS Bulbs, GU10 LED Lamps, and LV Transformers for LEDs Including Trailing Edge Loads and 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. The dimmer also contains a heat sensor which again stops damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot.
The V-Pro Series Dimmer 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.
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.
The V-Pro Series Dimmers can also be used for mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer.) This dimmer should not be used for Halogen GU10 Lamps or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps, (only use quality UK supplied lamps), please see the Compatibility guide or instruction PDF, or the instruction leaflet included with the dimmer.
The V-Pro Series Dimmer can NOT be used for wire-wound Low Voltage transformers, Fans or inductive loads or Halogen lamps
These V-Pro dimmers are Trailing Edge by default, but this can be adjusted to Leading Edge, as shown in the instructions.
These Dimmers can be used in 2-way circuits (where one lighting circuit is controlled from two locations). In order to achieve 2-way switching, they must be paired with a standard 2-way switch in the other location. 3-way switching can also be achieved by adding an intermediate switch in to the circuit. Please note, if total dimming is preferred from all switched locations, in a 2 or 3-way circuit then choose the Varilight Touch and Remote Series range V-Pro IR dimmers, in conjunction with Slave Dimmers.
This Dimmer has a maximum of 400 Watts per dimming module (100 Watts for LEDs) and a minimum of 2 Watts
The V-Pro dimmers are set to a certain level of brightness when first wired up and switched on, the dimmer brightness can now be changed if the LEDs are too bright at the lowest dimmer level, again please see the instructions for details.
These dimmers do not work with lighting panels (LED or CFL). Choose the V-Com range if you are dimming more than 10 LEDs or dimming LED panels.
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.
