Wireless dimmer controls LED lighting

July 30, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
With energy-saving LED lamps becoming increasingly popular among homeowners, dimming becomes equally popular. The new HomeMatic LED radio dimmer from eQ-3 AG enables wireless and thus comfortable dimming.

The HomeMatic LED remote dimmer controls loads of up to 60W. It supports LED arrays with voltages of 12V or 24V including stripes. By means of the actuator, the LED lamps can be driven through the CCU1 central control unit, all transmitters of the HomeMatic system as well as directly via the dimmer. The flat shape makes the device ideal for installation in furniture or in suspended ceilings. Power is supplied through an external DC source providing 12 V or 24 V, according to the LED string topology. For operating safety the actuator is equipped with an overtemperature protection and a replaceable overload protection.

The HomeMatic wireless dimmer is available through electronics mail-order house ELV.
