VARILIGHT dimmer switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices. Like all Varilight products these dimmers are 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.
The lights are dimmed by a rotary control knob and turned on and off by a push on/ off action. Push on/ off dimmers are suitable for 1-way and 2-way circuits. Our Standard Push on/off Dimmers can be used with mains voltage lighting and good quality low-voltage electronic transformers.
Standard Push on/off Dimmers can be used for mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs), up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer. It 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.
If dimming low-voltage lighting we recommend that a maximum of 5 good quality dimmable electronic transformers are used with this product. To specify the load of the dimmer, add up the wattage (or VA) of the transformers and select a dimmer to cover this value. If the Varilight Electronic Transformer is used up to 10 transformers can be used and the power rating of the dimmer is determined by adding the power (watts) of the bulbs, not the transformers.
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 Standard 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. Please note, if total dimming is preferred in all locations, in a 2 or 3-way circuit then choose the Varilight Touch and Remote range of dimmers.
Standard Push on/off Dimmers are not suitable for use with wire wound transformers or fans and other inductive loads (for these products see Intelligent Dimmers, Touch/Remote Dimmers, and Fan Regulators).
