Description

Made in Britain

This British made LED Dimmer is an award winning, high quality dimmer switch, compatible with most mains and low voltage spotlights and bulb range, including dimmable GU10 LED bulbs. The dimmer is controlled by a state-of-the-art microprocessor that offers sophisticated overload protection, meaning if you mistakenly connect your dimmer to too many lights or transformers, it will protect itself from failure.

Perfect for the LUMiLiFE range

This dimmer will give you complete control over your lighting ambience, thanks to its intelligent 2-way control mechanism and is also available in number of finishes acting as both a key aesthetic and technical component of your interior design.

The maximum load per gang is 100W or 10 lamps (whichever is lower). The minimum load per gang should not be less than 10W or 2 LEDs.

3 year LUMiLiFE warranty

On selected LUMiLiFE products, we offer an automatic 3 year warranty. This entitles you to unlimited replacements from the original purchase throughout the warranty period. If your original purchase is no longer available, a new replacement with the latest equivalent model will be offered.

Lumen

Since LED light bulbs are designed to use less energy than halogen spots, wattage is not a reliable way to gauge how bright the bulb is. Brightness is measured in Lumens.

With LED spotlights there is more to consider than just a direct Lumen comparison with the halogen equivalent. The superior light quality given off by LEDs and much lower bulb degradation rate over time must also be taken into account. This is why the stated Lumen output for an LED spotlight is often less than that quoted for a halogen spot bulb it replaces.

Beam Angle°

The beam angle is how wide the beam is spread. If you have a very narrow beam angle your light will be projected like a handheld torch whereas if you have a wide beam angle it will be much softer and spread like a traditional bulb. Wide beam angle are best for living areas such as living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms where you are looking for a softer light and narrow beam angles for targeting specific areas or for decoration.

Power Consumption (W)

The wattage is the value given to the energy consumed by the light bulb itself. So, a 50-watt halogen spotlight bulb will use 50 watts of power. If you have 6 x 50-watt halogen spots in your kitchen then you will be using 300 watts of power. If you were using replacement LED lights at 4 watts each you would be using 24 watts of power, resulting in huge energy savings.

Input Voltage

This is a measurement of the volts required to operate the bulb. The standard for the UK is 240 volts. This means that you can plug these directly into existing fittings without changing any of the electrics.

Height (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Width (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Depth (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Wattage Replacement

This details what this LED bulb is a replacement for in terms of standard halogen bulb wattage. This allows you to easily make a comparison when replacing your existing halogen bulb, to ensure you get a similar light quality and brightness from your new LED bulb

Average Life in Hrs

Manufacturers will give lifetime claims in multiples of 1000 hours. One thousand hours is equivalent to about 6-months use when the bulb is on for 4 hours per day. A traditional halogen spotlight bulb is expected to last about one year (2000 hours) where as an LED will last between 30,000 and 50,000 hours - that’s between 15 and 25 years! Switching to LEDs means you may never have to change your light bulbs again.

Base Type

This is the fitting of the bulb, described by a letter/number code. You can find out what your fitting is by looking on the base of the bulb you are replacing or the packaging of your existing bulb.

Dimmable

Dimmable LED bulbs are only compatible with a dedicated "Trailing Edge" dimmer switch that reduces the current flow. Your bulbs will not work effectively if used with the conventional "Leading Edge" dimmer switches that operate with a higher current flow.

When ordering dimmable LEDs please ensure you have an LED-compatible Dimmer Switch.

Protection Rating

The IP rating is an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. IP65 for example, is dust tight and water resistant.

Colour Rendering Index (CRI)

Measured on a scale from 0 to 100 percent, the colour rendering index (CRI) indicates a bulb's ability to make reds, greens, and all other shades look just the way they should. Simply put, the higher the CRI, the more accurate an object's colour would look under the light source.

Warranty

We're so confident in the quality of our bulbs that we offer an extended 3 Year warranty

Product used to operate new LED wall lights. It was easy to fit, looks smart and works well. There is a slight time lag between turning the control and the light level changing, and the lowest level is still higher than with conventional lighting, but in practice this is not a problem. I would definitely recommend dimmable LEDs with one of these dimmers as an economical but controllable lighting solution.

Quality was adequate and it worked, though not on the default settings with the LEDHUT supplied bulbs I used. Also worked with another set of LED bulbs I had available. On my set-up there is a couple of seconds delay before the lights come on, which I find a bit irritating. Not sure if that is standard when dimming LEDs
