    How to select dimmers?

    • Default Alternative Text

      Style criteria

      Your customers can choose from different designs and colors of dimmers. They also consider touch, rotary or remote dimmers and the possibility of dimming the lights from several locations, according to room configuration.

    • Default Alternative Text

      Technical criteria

      You must consider the type of lights (incandescent, halogen 230 V AC/low voltage, fluorescent tube), as well as their power and number. The availability of neutral wire and the combination with products such as shutter or heating control are also key factors.

    Our dimming solutions

    • Wired

      Wall mounted solutions
      Adjust the level of lighting from several control points in the room. Each pushbutton can control the super dimmer to maximize occupant comfort. You can choose from:
      • Rotary dimmers for lighting loads (except FLC) with optional memory function
      • Touch dimmers with or without memory
      • Comfort rotary dimmers with energy saving function and position indicator

      DIN-rail mounted solutions
      Transform push-buttons into dimmers by installing a dimming module in the control cabinet on DIN rail. The module controls lighting for all lights (except FLC loads).
      Advantages of this solution:
      • Control lights through walls
      • Adjust several light circuits
      • Set different scenes or scenarios
    • Wireless

      Infra-red system

      Wit the infra-red solutions your customers can easily dim the lights from different locations in the same room, for example without getting up from the sofa. The system comprises a remote emitter and and wall-mounted receiver.

      RF system

      The RF system is designed to enable convenient dimming from several locations. It combines an RF remote emitter and one or more RF receivers. It is the perfect solution for renovations and can be mixed with other home control solutions. It enables customers to:
      • Control lights through walls
      • Adjust several light circuits
      • Set different scenes or scenarios

      Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) system

      Smartphones with Bluetooth connectivity have become an essential part of everyday life — and our BLE lighting products take advantage of their capabilities. They help save energy because it's connected only when required by the user; it delivers simple configuration and timers via the app, on your phone or tablet. It is a modern remote control to help users configure and simplify their lives.
    • Digital

      KNX system
      Adapt lighting, heating and shutters with the KNX bus system, a globally recognized standard for interconnected, intelligent home automation components. The KNX system enables:
      • Flexibility (planning, adaptation, multi-vendor applications)
      • Safety and security
      • Up to 50% energy savings with multiple functions

      IHC system
      Intelligent Home Control integrates lighting, heating and shutters for convenient control and up to 50% energy savings. It features a central programmable unit in the control cabinet and enables:
      • Flexible scene-setting and programming
      • Remote access and control
      • Easy scalability and integration of multiple devices

      A microprocessor-based control and management system for buildings and homes, C-Bus is used to control lighting and other electrical services such as pumps, audio/visual devices, motors, etc. Whether simple ON/OFF control of a lighting circuit, or variable (analogue) type control, such as electronic dimmable fluorescent ballasts, C-Bus can be used to easily control virtually any type of electrical load. The key reasons to use C-Bus:
      • Highly robust and reliable control system, but low cost per node
      • Ultimate flexibility in switching and control: functions can be changed, added, removed, moved, reprogrammed, at any position on the network, at any time, without any cumbersome hard-wiring
      • A single C-Bus cable connection can control an unlimited number of devices.

      LED lighting

      The LED lighting technology enables you to reduce your energy consumption. We assist you in adapting your electrical switchboard and optimizing the operation of your lighting system.
      Default Alternative Text
      No! LED-technology luminaires have a special technological feature: they need a high current for a very short time at start-up. Learn how our tools and solutions can take solve this for you.
      • Optimize your installation Surge protection

        LED-technology luminaires can be destroyed by a surge.
        Protect your LED-technology lighting against lightning and temporary surges with our our solutions.

      • Optimize your installation Control

        The contactors and impulse relays that you normally use to control your lighting circuits can be damaged by the high inrush currents of LED-technology lamps. Use zero-voltage-switching contactors or impulse relays perfectly suited to the control of LED-technology lighting circuits.

        Default Alternative Text
      • Optimize your installation Circuit breaker

        The electronic interface (driver) of the luminaires causes a large transient inrush current at power up which could result in circuit-breaker tripping. By using a control device of the iCT+ or iTL+ type, you can optimize the protection circuit breaker's rating and curve.

        Default Alternative Text
      • Optimize your installation Harmonics

        The neutral conductor should have the same cross section as the phase conductors. In a 3-phase network, the harmonic content of the 3rd order and multiples of 3 generally ranges between 15-33% for LED lighting loads. The neutral conductor is loaded and should be designed to allow current flow.
