Like all Varilight products these V-Dim (Standard) Series modules are designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
It is important to select the correct dimmer switch module for your application so please read the following information carefully.
The lights are dimmed by a rotary control knob and turned on and off by a push on/off action. V-Dim Push on/off dimmer modules are suitable for 1-way and 2-way circuits.
Our V-Dim Series Standard Dimmer modules are Leading Edge and can be used with Mains Voltage Lighting and good quality Low Voltage 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. Please note that noise levels can depend on the quality of the transformer being used. The best suited dimmer series for dimming Electronic Low Voltage Transformers is the V-Pro Series, which has many features including Dimmer Buzz Elimination, that is created from the Transformers. If using 6+ non Varilight Transformers then choose the V-Pro or V-Plus Series.
The V-Dim (Standard) Series dimmer modules are able to dim between 4-15 Varilight or Megaman Energy Saving Lamps (ESL's).
The V-Dim Series Standard Push on/off Dimmer modules 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 be achieved by adding an intermediate switch in to the circuit. When using V-Dim Standard Push on/off Dimmer modules in a 2 or 3-way circuit the lights can only be dimmed from the location that the dimmer module is situated in. Please note, if total dimming is preferred from many switched locations, in a 2, 3 or more way circuit then choose the Varilight Touch and Remote range of dimmers, in conjunction with Slave Dimmers.
The V-Dim Series Standard Push on/off Dimmer modules 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, but if greater than 500 Watts, you must downrate them by 75% for this dimmer to work.
Choose V-Pro Dimmer Series if dimming LED's.
The V-Dim Push on/ off Dimmer Series are NOT suitable for use with wire wound Transformers or Fans and other inductive loads (for these products see The V-Plus [Intelligent IQ] Dimmer Series, and Fan Regulating dimmers). Please check with manufacturer of appliance to be dimmed.
