European VariGrid V-Pro IR Series 1 gang 1 way (and 2 way or multi-way when using a Slave dimmer) Master LED Dimmer with Polished Brass Touch Sensitive Button and Centralised Remote Control Sensor, for use with VariGrid Dimension Screwless Polished Brass Single, Double and Triple Faceplates, which is part of Varilight's versatile metal grid range for Europe. This insert would take up a 1 hole cut out on the face plate. The dimmer has special software with multi modes, including Trailing and Leading Edge and the ability to adjust the minimum brightness.

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.

Summary of V-Pro IR Compatibility (Per Dimmer Module)

1 Gang Dimmers
- 110 dimmable LED lamps (maximum of 100W)
- 350 Watts max of Incandescent lamps
- 300 Watts max of mains, Eco and low voltage halogen lamps
- 100 Watts max of Low Voltage LED [Use default mode 1 only]
- 16 dimmable CFLS

This dimmer is a Master dimmer. One Master dimmer is required per circuit and if the circuit is 2 or more way, then V-Pro IR Slave dimmers must be used for the additional switch/dimmer locations.

Normal on/off (rocker/toggle or impulse) switches cannot be used in conjunction with this type of dimmer.

The VARILIGHT V-Pro IR Touch and Remote Dimmer Series has been designed to dim a range of different fittings:

- Most good quality dimmable LEDs, like Megaman
- Mains voltage incandescent GLS or candle-shaped bulbs
- Good quality dimmable electronic low voltage transformers (including those requiring trailing edge control)
- GU10 or similar good quality mains and Eco halogen bulbs

Please see more info' for further compatibility.

V-Pro IR dimmer switches are trailing edge by default but can be adjusted to leading edge for maximum lamp compatibility.
It is also easy to adjust the dimmer's minimum brightness.

This Dimmer Series features scene setting and zonal lighting which can be operated by a Universal Remote handset, such as Varilight's YRE8.

Please note V-Pro IR Dimmers are not suitable for use with wire-wound low voltage transformers, fans or inductive loads. Please choose the V-Plus Intelligent Dimmer Series or alternatively look at Fan Dimmers for these applications. Please check with the manufacturer that the bulb or lamp is dimmable. Please choose the V-Com to work with more than 10 LEDs in a circuit and for lighting panels (LED or CFL).



More Info
Appearance and Function

The dimmer cosmetically has a chrome circular metal button on view, with a remote sensor that sits semi-flush in the middle of the button. The dimmer uses your skin resistance to work. To dim your lights, press and hold the button. To brighten, press and hold the same button. A quick touch will turn the lights on or off. If the button is continuously pressed on, the lights will cycle up and down.

Please see the product instructions for further info.

Applications
This dimmer can be used in many applications, from Home to commercial premises such as offices, bars, nightclubs, retirement and nursing homes.

Adjustable Dimmer Modes
V-Pro IR dimmers are set to run in trailing-edge (Mode 1) by default. This Versatile mode is suitable for most types of lighting, including many dimmable LEDs. Some lighting loads, including particular brands of dimmable LEDs perform best with leading-edge (Mode 2). There is also a third driving mode that has been designed for dimmable CFLs and integrated downlights and some other rare types of LEDs (Mode 3). These modes can be changed without the need for an electrician by following the appropriate instructions included with the dimmer. These instructions can also be found below.

Software
V-Pro IR dimmers also have improved software installed, enabling zonal lighting and discrete codes for scene setting, both of which can be controlled by Universal Remote controls such as Logitech Harmony or Varilight's own YRE8. Alternatively, you can easily program a spare button on an existing remote control, for example a Sky TV remote or YRC8.

2 Way and Multi Way Dimming
It is possible to use multiple dimmer switches in a single circuit when using the V-Pro IR, this is one massive advantage over conventional dimmers. In this instance, the main switch where the live feed is present must be a master dimmer. The second switch, or 3rd switch (intermediate) must then be a V-Pro IR Slave dimmer. It is not possible to use a Slave dimmer switch as a standalone dimmer in a 1 way circuit. Similarly, normal on/off rocker/toggle or impulse switches cannot be used in conjunction with V-Pro IR touch remote dimmers.
For 2-way circuits: 1 Touch and Remote Master Dimmer and 1 Slave dimmer.
For 3 way circuits: 1 Touch and Remote Master Dimmer and 2 Slave dimmers.
For multi-way circuits: 1 Touch and Remote Master Dimmer and as many Slave dimmers as is needed.

Protection
The V-Pro IR dimmer is equipped with self resetting 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. The dimmers also contain a heat sensor which helps prevent damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot.

Soft Start Technology
V-Pro IR dimmer switches have Soft Start Technology which increases the lamps brightness gradually when the dimmer is switched on. This creates a welcoming effect and can increase the life span of lamps used.

LEDs
This range is capable of dimming up to 10 good quality LED lamps up to max load of 100W. If you need a dimmer to dim more than 10 LED lamps, then this is possible with Varilight's V-Com Series. The V-Com is classed as a commercial dimmer, however they are also suitable for home use too.

Please make sure the LEDs you are dimming are Dimmable. If you run this dimmer with non-dimmable LEDs, the dimmer will malfunction and the product warranty will be voided.

Low Voltage
When using Electronic Low Voltage transformers we recommend that a maximum of 5 good quality dimmable electronic transformers are used (10 if Varilight). Add the watts of the lamps if using Varilight transformers to determine which dimmer to select, but if you are using another manufacturer of transformer, add up the VA of the transformers so it does not exceed the maximum wattage of the dimmer.

Resolving Issues with Poor Quality Lamps
Varilight have created 2 Special Modules to deal with issues caused by using poor quality dimmable LEDs with V-Pro IR Series and other remote LED Dimmers. If the LED lights flicker, for example, then an Active Load Module (Z2ACTIVELOAD) can be purchased and wired in to the circuit. Or if there is a glow to the LEDs even when dimmer is turned off, then a GlowFix (YAGF) is required. This will improve most non compatible dimmable products. If this dimmer is purchased and installed, and the LED lamps are not compatible, the dimmer is not faulty so cannot be returned to us (you need to buy better quality LED lamps instead). As a rule, we recommend you purchase the LEDs that we sell. That way you know they are compatible with Varilight LED dimmers.

Cleaning
This product can be easily cleaned with a soft dry micro-fibre cloth. Never apply masking tape or other similar tape to the product. Avoid the use of any cleaning chemicals and always use a Gasket on freshly plastered, painted or damp walls as the plates may tarnish. (Plaster can take up to 6 months to dry out). If these Instructions are not followed it will void the product warranty.

VARILIGHT dimmer switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices. Like all our products this Dimmer Series is designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
