Universal Black In line Lighting Lamp Dimmer Switch 4W-150W Incandescent LED CFL
Please note that the loads differ depending on the type of bulb that you are using.
If you are using:
Incandescent (filament) bulbs, the dimmer has a range of 4W – 150W.
CFL (fluorescent) bulbs, the dimmer has a range of 11W – 25W (4 bulbs max).
LED bulbs, the dimmer has a range of 4W – 25W (4 bulbs max).
This can be used in conjunction with your incandescent or halogen floor/table lamps. Certain dimmable fluorescent and LEDs may also be used, but the 4W minimum load would have to be adhered to. To install, simply connect the live and neutral from your plug to the input of the dimmer, and the live and neutral from the lamp to the output of the dimmer. A maximum of 150W can be dimmed from a single 240V dimmer.
It is important to appreciate that not all dimmer switches will provide effective, smooth and flicker-free dimming. The operation of common mains voltage AC dimmers appears similar but the electrical characteristics vary significantly. While this makes no difference to filament lamps, the effect on the electronics within the CFL lamp can be dramatic and are often incompatible. Please note that all information in this guide is based on testing under laboratory conditions and should be used as guidance only. Because of the complicated application environment, the huge variation in dimmer construction from one model to another it is not possible to guarantee that a lamp will work with a particular dimmer and undesirable effects could be observed even with recommended dimmer switches. In extreme cases, incompatible dimmer switches may damage the lamps.
Users should ensure that correct items of appropriate voltage & wattage are used and should consult a suitably qualified electrical engineer if unsure. We sell items on many international sites and supply over the world, so it is for the buyer to ensure that the legislation requirements of their locality are met with the products they desire to purchase.
