Shuttle’s universal press on/off rotary dimmer is a separately switched, compact, modular dimming mechanism rated at 225W (Maximum loads vary by lamp). The dimmer is designed to detect load compatibility and will switch to leading or trailing edge to suit the load. The dimmer can be programmed to optimize compatibility and is suitable for LED, halogen and incandescent lamps.

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.
