The V-Pro Dimmer Series are perhaps most innovative in their ability to Dim LED bulbs. This J Series Dimmer can be used with Incandescent GLS Lamps, Dichroic Lamps (1-20 Transformers), CFL bulbs (such as the YCA20D E27 Screw Fitting or B22 Bayonet Fitting and GU10 Halogens or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps (only use quality UK supplied lamps). With a minimum load of only 10 watts, this V Pro Dimmer Switch reduces power consumption and is ideal for use with LED's.
The dimmer has a Soft Start when turned on, meaning it won't instantly turn on to full capacity. This not only extends the life of the lamp and bulb, but saves energy and gives a steady, welcoming effect when turned on. It has a built in heat sensor to prevent damage to the dimmer if it becomes too hot.
The V-Pro Series Dimmers are compatible with Mains Voltage Lighting, Trailing Edge Loads, Leading Edge Loads and Low Voltage Transformers (see below for suggested transformers). It can NOT be used as a Fan Isolater, with Wire-Wound Low Voltage Transformers or Inductive Loads.
You can use other quality low voltage transformers, but we would recommend using the Varilight low voltage transformers (product codes: YT50, YT70, YT105, YT150, YT250) for their long life quality and ease of installation. With quality low voltage transformers you can control them up to maximum load as specified on the dimmer.
This dimmer has a maximum load of 400 watts, minimum load of 10 watts.
