If you decide to use another type of lamp, don't forget to configure the dimming module in the electricity cabinet again.
With this dimming module, you can dim the following types of lamps:
• incandescent lamps
• 230V halogen lamps
• 12V halogen lamps with an electronic transformer
• 12V halogen lamps with a ferromagnetic transformer
• dimmable LED lamps
• dimmable energy-saving lamps (CFLi)
The following table provides an overview of the maximum load that is permitted per lamp type at an ambient temperature of 45°C.

Setting the dimming module according to the type of lamp
You can manually configure the type of lamp that you wish to dim on the dimming module, more specifically, on the channel (1 or 2) where the lamp is connected. The setting is done with the dipswitches at the front of the dimming module, which is usually installed at the bottom of the electric cabinet. Consult the diagram below for the correct settings for the dipswitches per lamp type.

We provide an example of the advantages and disadvantages of the final two options below:
Incandescent lamp or halogen lamp with elec- tronic transformer
led 3 of led 4.
The lamp does not shine bright briefly after being switched on.
The lamp can be dimmed until its minimum level
• The lamp cannot be dimmed to its minimum level; • In certain cases the difference that can be reached in light output is limited
The lamp shines bright briefly after being swit- ched on, if a low dimming level was chosen.
Switch the dimmer off and on after setting the minimum level. If the lamp is not on, select a lamp profile with boost function (CFLi1, CFLi2, LED 3 or LED 4).
Setting the minimum level
To reach the (optimal) maximum reach of each lamp, the minimum level can be adjusted. Use a screwdriver to manually adjust the minimum level. Turn the potentiometer to the right to increase the level. Turn to the left to reduce the level. Consult the following diagram. 1. Switch the light on at its maximum light intensity. 2. Adjust the light intensity:
You are happy with the minimal light intensity.
You don't need to modify anything on the dimming module in the electric cabinet.
The light shines too brightly: the minimum light intensity is too high.
With a screwdriver, turn the potentiometer at the front of the module to the left to lower the light intensity. Stop just before the lamp begins to flash or switch off.
The light flashes or doesn't switch on: the mini- mum light intensity is too low.
With a screwdriver, turn the potentiometer on every channel at the front of the module to the right to increase the light intensity.
The following diagram summarises these three possibilities.
|Dim to MINIUM LEVEL||Is on at minimum level||V||Minimum dimming level OK|
|Still shines too bright||X||Minimum dimming level too high|
|is not on or is flashing||X||Minimum dimming level too low|
