Description

Description Varilight V-Plus Series 1 Gang, for either 1 or 2 Way circuits, 40-400 Watt/VA, Push-on/Push-off Dimmer Switch, on a Single Plate, is ideal for dimming mains and almost all Low Voltage applications, and is especially suited for upto 400 Watts of Halogen or GLS Lighting. ………………………………………….. VARILIGHT Dimmer Switches have an industry-wide reputation for exceptional performance, long life and innovation at attractive prices. ………………………………………….. The VARILIGHT V-Plus Series Dimmer, like all our products, is 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, if need be look at PDF manuals, and if you are still unsure, then contact us. ………………………………………….. Appearance, Function and Applications This dimmer is push on/off and rotary controlled, meaning to turn the dimmer on or off simply push the dimmer knob in and it will click back out; then to turn the brightness up or down, rotate the knob clockwise and anti-clockwise. ………………………………………….. V-Plus Push on/off dimmers are also suitable for either 1 way, or 2 way circuits. What does 1 or 2 way mean? It means you are able to use this type of dimmer for both 1 way circuits (1 dimmer controlling 1 light) and 2 way circuits (1 dimmer and 1 switch controlling the same light). If the lighting circuit is controlled by 1 dimmer and 2 switches (3 way), in seperate locations then one of the switches in the circuit must be an Intermediate Switch with four terminals enabling you to link all three switches together. ………………………………………….. V-Plus Series Dimmers are Leading Edge and can be used with mains voltage lighting and good quality Low Voltage Electronic Transformers. ………………………………………….. The V-Plus Series 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. ………………………………………….. The V-Plus Series can also dim GU10 or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps (only use quality UK supplied lamps) up to the maximum load as shown in the PDF instruction manual. ………………………………………….. When using Electronic Low Voltage Transformers we recommend that a maximum of 5 good quality dimmable Electronic Transformers are used (10 if Varilight Transformers ) with this dimmer range. Please note: add the watts of the bulbs/lamps if using Varilight Transformers, to determine which wattage of 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. Please note that noise levels can depend on the quality of the Transformer being used. ………………………………………….. The V-Plus Series 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 V-Plus Series 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, if total dimming is preferred from many switched locations, in a 2, 3 or more way circuit then choose the Varilight Touch and Remote range of dimmers, in conjunction with Slave Dimmers. ………………………………………….. The V-Plus Series are equipped with some intelligent features: Soft-Start Technology, allows a longer life span of the bulbs or lamps used by increasing the brightness level softly, which also creates a welcoming effect; 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; Intelligent Heat Sensor which again stops damage to the dimmer, if it becomes too hot. ………………………………………….. Limitations These dimmers will NOT dim LEDs, if dimming LEDs choose either the V-Pro , Multi-Point Remote , Multi-Point Touch , or V-Com Dimmer Series. Do not use this dimmerswitch for fluorescent bulbs, energy saving bulbs or fans. The dimmerswitch will eventually be damaged beyond repair if used for these applications. Incorrect use will make your guarantee invalid. ………………………………………….. Varilight Dimmers can NOT be used for wire-wound or torroidal Transformers. For Fan applications choose V-Dim Solid State Series , please check with manufacturer of appliance to be dimmed. ………………………………………….. Cleaning This product can be easily cleaned with a soft dry micro-fibre cloth. Never apply masking tape or other similar tape to the product. Avoid the use of any cleaning chemicals and always use a Gasket on freshly plastered, painted or damp walls as the plates may tarnish. (Plaster can take up to 6 months to dry out). A Gasket can be made from the packaging the product comes in, or a plastic bag can be cut to stop the plate touching the plaster. Unfortunately, if these Instructions are not followed, and the plate is damaged, it will void the product warranty. …………………………………………..
