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 Varilight Low-Load Dimmer has been designed to be used with 1-6 good quality dimmable energy saving bulbs, also known as compact fluorescents lamps (CFL).
The lights are dimmed by a rotary control knob and turned on and off by a push on/off action.
Push on/off dimmers can be used in 1-way or 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 a standard push on/off dimmer 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.
