The VARILIGHT Touch Dimmer Switch has many more advanced features than other dimmer switches including Trailing Edge Technology.
Like all our products the Touch Dimmers are designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
As the name suggests you can dim these dimmers by touch.
Touch Dimmers can be used in 1-way, 2-way, 3-way or even multi-way circuits. When using the Touch Dimmers in 2-way circuits or more, they should be used with Slave Touch Dimmers in the other switch locations. In every circuit there should be only one Touch Master Dimmer, and then any number of Slave Dimmers. This system can be used where there is conventional two-way or multi-way wiring. .
When using Touch Dimmers in multi-way circuits, there is one massive advantage over conventional dimmers. The lights can be dimmed from each location, rather than only from the dimmer location. They can also be switched from each location.
Touch Dimmers also incorporate ultra fast overload protection including high current capability self-resetting feature, they can even withstand total short circuit. It is common that when a lamp blows, it creates a massive serge in the circuit and sometimes a short circuit which can permanently damage a normal dimmer.
By using Touch/Remote dimmers there is a minimal risk of damage in case of lamp failure and a dramatically improved lamp life.
Please note Touch Dimmers are not suitable for use with wire-wound low voltage transformers, fans or inductive loads, choose the Intelligent Dimmer (IQ Dimmer) or alternatively look at the 630 Watt Low Voltage Standard Dimmer for these applications. Please check with the manufacturer that the appliance is dimmable.
