Green Dimmers

The 2K GREEN RIMMIR-DIMMER by Pro-Tech, Inc is a 2000 watt reverse phase light dimmer that is revolutionizing the dimming industry. Some of the very important advantages this dimmer has over traditional Triac or SCR based dimmers are: soft start every cycle, greater than 98% increased noise immunity, Biofeedback, increased bulb life, works with any type of bulb, and provides a better Power Factor.The RIMMIR has been tested with many types of bulbs including: CFL, CCF, LED, Incandescent, and many others. Traditional Triac based dimmers do not work as well with loads other than Incandescent (resistive) loads. The Reverse Phase Technology of the RIMMIR allows it to dim nearly every type of bulbs on the market. No upgrade or 100 Watt Incandescent bulb is necessary when switching to dimmable florescent bulbs.2K Green Rimmir-Dimmer Literature

Other dimmers have screw terminals instead of the attached stranded wires to the new dimmer. For the dimmers with screw terminals, strip 3/4 in. of the insulated covering from the wires in the box and bend a loop in each with needle-nose pliers. Place the loop clockwise around the screw terminals and close the loop around the screws with the needle nose pliers. Then tighten the screws.

In most cases, the two switch wires will be some color other than green or white, usually black. But one of the wires may be white if your house is wired with plastic-sheathed cable. Put a wrap of black tape around the white conductor to label it as a hot wire.

Cresnet CommunicationsThe GL-EXP-DIM-CN interfaces with a Crestron control system via Cresnet. Cresnet is a simple 4-wire network bus that provides the communications backbone for a system of Crestron lighting dimmers, switches, keypads, shades, thermostats, and other devices.

The Pico remote control is a convenient way to control Lutron Caseta Wireless dimmers. With the Pico you can turn lights on or off and raise or lower them from anywhere in the room. Use it as a handheld remote, mount it on a wall, or mount it to a tabletop pedestal. You can also control your lights from the comfort of your car by attaching the Pico to the car visor clip (sold separately). The Pico uses Clear Connect RF Technology; Lutron's latest advancement of highly reliable RF technology that ensures seamless communication between your Caseta Wireless products. To communicate with other systems or devices, including RadioRA 2, HomeWorks QS, QSG, QS sensor module (QSM),Quantum, myRoom, Vive, Serena Shades, and Sivoia QS

To help combat these issues, Lutron has developed a family of CL dimmers for dimmable CFL and LED bulbs. By incorporating HED Technology, these dimmers improve the dimming performance of dimmable CFLs and LEDs compared to standard dimmers by: Keeping the lights on as they are dimmedMaking sure the lights turn on at all light levelsEliminating/reducing excessive flickerKeeping the lights on even with line voltage fluctuationsBulbs Approved for Use with this DimmerPer UL standard 1472, Lutron must test each bulb to ensure its compatibility with our CL dimmers. For a list of compatible bulbs click on the link below. This list will be updated as Lutron tests more bulbs. Please check back regularly for updates.Learn More

Factory reset your Dimmer switch by pressing and holding the "Setup" button on the back of the Dimmer switch for at least 10 seconds until the LED indicator on the front turns green. After the LED turns green, it will blink orange for several minutes.

The worst part is that anytime I hit the up button, light turns on for a second, led changes to multiple colors really fast, then blue for about a second, flashes off(and the light turns off as well), and finally back to green. I really wish the light was usable while figured this out!

I'm assuming they are solid green? Try setting your ZigBee channel to either the lowest number or the highest number manually and re-id. Older devices (originally embernet) sometimes seem to have issues with other channels (you can usually change it again after they are identified).

I went to the Sensor rack and noticed the door light was flashing then looked for the error message on the CEM and noticed that it is blank and has no text on it. I have an ION Console and an Express 72/144 connected to a merge unit. Merge unit is connected to a 1 in 5 out splitter connected to a Colortran D192 Dimmer Rack, the Sensor 48 Rack as well as multiple Leviton 4 X 575W packs. The Sensor Rack is the only dimmers reacting this way even when by passing the merge and splitter units and going direct from console to Sensor Rack.

Next generation "system-on-a-chip" technology provides unsurpassed value in SCR dimming. Stand-by power consumption of less than 1 Watt, allow for compliance with the International Energy Agency's "One Watt Initiative" for standby power consumption. This makes J-PACK's truly "green" with the minimal possible impact on the environment!

Available in various sizes and configurations, J-PACK's offer unique flexibility in professional grade dimming. Designed for modern lower wattage compact filament dimming loads these dimmers are full rated at 1,560 Watts for constant prolonged operation. Premium hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers offer safety and eliminate the false tripping concern of competitive dimmers. Intuitive LCD user interface combined analog inputs and contact closure inputs allow for industry wide application.

Available in a range of voltage and output configurations.Unique power saving stand-by mode reduces power consumption to less than 1 Watt, a "green" dimmer pack.Dim standard or low-voltage incandescent quartz lamps. Compatible with SCR dimmable LED lamps and fixtures.Individual dimmer profile selection permits safe and silent control of non-dim lighting loads.DMX512 start addressable in single channel (offset) or individually (patch).DMX "snapshots" with scene playback.Unique "lamp warming" feature extends lamp life significantly.

While we cannot certify that our dimmers will be capable of dimming specific lamps, we will happily test any lamps sent in to our warehouse. Please include a completed repair form with the request and ship the lamp to us. We'll test the lamp with our dimmers, and e-mail you with our findings.

  • In general, there will be two wires that attach to the circuit wires in the box. And there will be another wire that attaches to the circuit grounding wire. Some dimmers that have more advanced controls will include more wires."}},"@type": "Question","name": "Can you put a dimmer on a single-pole switch?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Yes, you can put a dimmer on a single-pole switch if you want to control a light fixture from that one switch.
