Varilight V-Pro Series Dimension Screwless Brushed Steel, 4 Gang (Quad), 1 or 2 Way 4x250 Watt Push on/Push off (Trailing Edge) Dimmer with Brushed Steel Knobs Eliminate Dimmer Buzz For GLS Bulbs, GU10 Lamps, and LV Transformers Including Trailing Edge Loads.
The VARILIGHT V-Pro (Professional Universal) Series Dimmer (also known as the J Dimmer), like all our products, is designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
The V-Pro Series, eliminates Dimmer Buzz For GLS Bulbs, GU10 Lamps, and LV Transformers Including Trailing Edge Loads and is equipped with Self Re-setting Overload Protection, so is able to handle overload situations, for example, if the wattage of the bulbs/lamps are accidentally too high on a circuit. This is achieved by either, stepping down the dimmer's output to the lamps (if the watts are marginally overloaded), or the dimmer cuts out before there is any damage, (if the watts are grossly overloaded), until the load is reduced. The dimmer also contains a heat sensor which again stops damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot.
The V-Pro Series Dimmer has Soft Start Technology, allowing a longer life span of the bulbs or lamps used by increasing the brightness level softly, which also creates a welcoming effect.
The V-Pro Series were primarily designed for Dimmable LED's, the dimmers, with a minimum load of only 10 Watts, can operate at least 1-20 good quality Dimmable LED's.
These Dimmers can also be used to operate upto 12 Varilight (YCA20D) or Megaman Dimmable Energy Saving Lamps, (Please refer to the instruction leaflet of the Megaman lamps for usage tips).
The V-Pro Series Dimmers can also be used for Mains Voltage Lighting, Trailing Edge Loads, and Electronic Low Voltage Transformers. When using Electronic Low Voltage transformers we recommend that a maximum of 5 good quality dimmable electronic transformers are used (10 if Varilight) with this Dimmer range. Please note: add the watts of the bulbs/lamps if using Varilight Transformers, to determine which 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.
The V-Pro Series Dimmers can also be used for mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs), GU10 Lamps or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps, (only use quality UK supplied lamps), up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer.
This New VARILIGHT intelligent dimmer (also known as the JQ Dimmer) is designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.
The 'J' Intelligent Dimmer has Soft Start Technology which, when the lights are turned on, the brightness level is increased softly, which creates a welcoming effect and extends the life span of the bulbs.
'J' Intelligent dimmers can be used for mains voltage, low-voltage transformer loads, or control of awkward loads.
'J' Intelligent Dimmers can be used for mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs), up to the maximum load as specified on the dimmer. They 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.
The 'J' Intelligent Dimmer can be used for wire-wound low-voltage transformers up to maximum load as specified on dimmer and can also be used on fans and other inductive load appliances, but please check with manufacturer of appliance.
The 'J' Intelligent Dimmer uses trailing edge technology.
'J' Intelligent 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 an 'J' Intelligent 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
