Shuttle trailing edge rotary dimmers are separately switched, compact, modular dimming mechanisms rated at 500W and 800W, and designed for universal load compatibility. The units utilise powerful and sophisticated dimming technology to provide full control of almost any type of load. The dimmers also incorporate over-current and over-temperature protection devices and are capable of withstanding persistent short circuit conditions.

DOES A DIMMER SAVE ENERGY?
Yes, because even when full on, dimmers supplied the lamp with a maximum of 92-95% of the full AC voltage and hence provides a slight energy saving. As the lamp is dimmed more, the RMS voltage across the lamp is reduced and the energy saving becomes more. As an example, an incandescent or halogen lamp which is 50% dimmed uses at least 40% less energy compared to when fully on.
