..................................................
VARILIGHT Dimmer Switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices.
..................................................
The VARILIGHT V-Dim Thermal Series Dimmer, like all our products, is designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
..................................................
It is important to select the correct dimmer switch for your application, so please read the following information carefully, if need be look at PDF manuals, and if you are still unsure, then contact us.
..................................................

Appearance, Function and Applications

This dimmer is push on/off and rotary controlled, meaning to turn the dimmer on or off simply push the dimmer knob in and it will click back out; then to turn the brightness up or down, rotate the knob clockwise and anti-clockwise.
..................................................
V-Dim Thermal dimmers are suitable for 1 or 2 way circuits.
..................................................
The V-Dim Series Thermal Dimmers are Leading Edge and can be used with mains voltage lighting and good quality Low Voltage Electronic Transformers, mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs), up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer, GU10 or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps (only use good quality lamps) up to the maximum load as shown in the PDF instruction manual.
..................................................
The V-Dim Series are 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.
..................................................
When using Electronic Low Voltage Transformers we recommend that a maximum of 5 good quality dimmable Electronic Transformers are used (10 if Varilight Transformers) with this dimmer range. Please note: add the watts of the bulbs/lamps if using Varilight Transformers, to determine which wattage of 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 V-Dim Thermal Series Push on/off 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 be achieved by adding an intermediate switch in to the circuit. When using V-Dim Series Push on/off Dimmers in a 2 or 3 way circuit the lights can only be dimmed from the location that the dimmer is situated in, 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, like the V-Pro IR Series.
..................................................
This Euro VariGrid product are part of a mix and match set that comprises of over 20 different clip-in inserts, put together in your own configuration to create bespoke items. You have the ability, if required, to mix different colour face plates and inserts, to create your own unique blend of coolness in the home, office or anywhere.

Limitations

The best suited dimmer series for dimming Electronic Low Voltage Transformers, including dimming more than 5 Transformers, is the V-Plus Series, which has many features including Overload Protection; Soft Start which is gentler on the load; and Dimmer Buzz Elimination, that can be created from the transformers.
..................................................
The V-Dim Series are NOT suitable for use with wire wound Transformers and other inductive loads. They can not be used on Fans either, (choose Fan Speed Controllers). Please check with manufacturer of appliance to be dimmed.
..................................................
These dimmers will NOT dim LEDs, if dimming LEDs choose either the V-Pro, V-Pro IR, or V-Com Dimmer Series.

Cleaning

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).
