VARILIGHT Dimmer Switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices.
The VARILIGHT V-Dim 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 Push on/off dimmers are also suitable for either 1 way, or 2 way circuits. What does 1 or 2 way mean? It means you are able to use this type of dimmer for both 1 way circuits (1 dimmer controlling 1 light) and 2 way circuits (1 dimmer and 1 switch controlling the same light). If the lighting circuit is controlled by 1 dimmer and 2 switches (3 way), in seperate locations then one of the switches in the circuit must be an Intermediate Switch with four terminals enabling you to link all three switches together.
The V-Dim Series Standard 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 quality UK supplied lamps) up to the maximum load as shown in the PDF instruction manual.
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 Series Standard 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.
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.
Varilight Dimmers can NOT be used for wire-wound or torroidal Transformers. For Fan applications choose V-Dim Solid State Series, please check with manufacturer of appliance to be dimmed.
These dimmers will NOT dim LEDs, if dimming LEDs choose either the V-Pro, Multi-Point Remote, Multi-Point Touch, or V-Com Dimmer Series.
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). A Gasket can be made from the packaging the product comes in, or a plastic bag can be cut to stop the plate touching the plaster. Unfortunately, if these Instructions are not followed, and the plate is damaged, it will void the product warranty.
