1 Gang (Single), 1 or 2 Way 500 Watt/VA iQ, (Leading Edge) Dimmer, Dimension Screwless iridium Black

Varilight V-Plus Dimension Screwless iridium Black, 1 Gang (Single), 1 or 2 Way Push-on/Push-off 500 Watt Low Voltage intelligent Dimmer, with (Leading Edge) Technology, with iridium Black Knob (For Mains and Almost All Low Voltage Applications). Please Note: The Iridium Range has a special coating on the plates, which is fine for all bulb types EXCEPT CFL LIGHTING, which produces a petrol effect on the plate. Please choose a different range if using CFL lamps/bulbs.VARILIGHT Dimmer Switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices. This VARILIGHT V-Plus (Intelligent IQ) Series dimmer, like all our products, is designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.

The V-Plus 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 either, stepping down the dimmer's output to the lamps (if the watts are marginally overloaded), or the dimmer cuts out before there is any damage, (if the watts are grossly overloaded), until the load is reduced. This dimmer series also contains a heat sensor which again stops damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot.

The V-Plus 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.

The V-Plus Series dimmers can be used for mains voltage, low voltage transformer loads, or control of awkward loads.

V-Plus Dimmers 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. 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.

This V-Plus Series Dimmer can be used for wire-wound Low Voltage Transformers (NOT RECOMMENDED FOR LARGE TORROIDAL TRANSFORMERS) up to maximum load as specified on dimmer and can also be used on Fans and other inductive load appliances, but please check with manufacturer of appliance.

The V-Plus Dimmer Series uses Leading Edge Technology.

V-Plus 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 range of dimmers, in conjunction with Slave Dimmers.

Choose V-Pro Dimmer Series if dimming LED's

This Dimmer has a maximum of 500 Watts and minimum of 50 Watts
