Idratek Expanded Range – New Dimmer Module

The UK Intelligent Network and Home Automation company – Idratek has extended their range of modules. For the first time they now have their own Idratek Dimmer, the SLD-001 …

“The SLD-001 is a single channel light dimmer module suitable for use on incandescent lamps and most electronic low voltage transformer based lighting. Certain high voltage halogen lighting (eg. GU10) may also be controlled but must be derated to around 60% of module capacity.

The module utilises superior trailing edge (phase turn off) control which avoids high inrush currents and thus improves lamp life expectancy, minimises dimmer noise and allows control of low wattage lamps without flicker. Electronic overload protection is also incorporated. This unit is designed for ‘in-line’ applications, where separate neutral and lives feeds are not available. It can therefore replace standard 1way light switch fixtures.

Availability of onboard user definable ramp and free form dynamic profiles allow complex dynamic scene settings to be accomplished even without a high level control program such as Cortex… Output Characteristics
