LED Dimming has been a common lighting requirement in Today's Professional LED Lighting / Interior Design. But for many, who are in LED Lighting Design / Interior Design / M&E Consultant, they might have found different Reliability and Performance problems when using Traditional Incandescent Dimmers (a.k.a, TRIAC Dimmers) to realize LED Dimming. There are already many websites saying that LED Dimming requires a new type of Dimmer. It's our intention to create our Application Video Library to explore different LED Dimming topics so that the relevant parties would be able to visualize it than simply reading another technical article online.

To provide a simple-to-use and cost-effective LED Dimming solution for customers’ transition to Professional LED Lighting effect, our 450W / 220 - 240Vac Digital Phase Cut LED Wall Dimmers are designed for LED Deep Dimming. Not only are backward compatible to single Live-wire operation for TRIAC Dimmer Replacement, our LED dimmers have Other Benefits from Digital Processing, which upgrades Single Pole Dimmers with new features matching with today’s market needs.

Gen 3 LED Phase Dimmer
With our past effort, our Gen 3  LED Dimmer, DZ3G450DIAL, is officially listed on the leading Professional LED Lighting Manufacturer, SORAA®’s Compatibility List for its Professional LED Lamps. Not only that, our different solutions have been using in multiple projects by some prestigious customers, who encountered LED Dimming problems for their Interior Design projects. By working with LED Driver and Lighting Fixture Suppliers, Designers and Electricians, even Retailers, we've gained a comprehensive end-to-end understanding of the overall LED Dimming / Professional LED Lighting applications. This extensive Marketing experience also fuels our continuous product innovation for LED Dimming applications!


Gen 4 LED Phase Dimmer
To address Hospitality, Office, Retail and Residential Lighting applications, our new Gen 4 Multi-Way LED Dimmer, DZ4G450MULT, does not only integrate Light On/Off, Deep Dimming Up/Down and Scene-Setting features to a single button, but it also has a Unique Feature of being able to Connect Multiple LED Dimmers to Control the Same set of Lighting Fixtures at Different Locations, without SPDT switch nor Mobile APP . This is something not found in the textbook and is a useful new product to the Lighting society!

DZ4G450MULT Product Launch & Multi-Way Phase Dimming Operations

Our Gen 4 Dimmer inherits our One-Touch Control Button design and is yet an upgraded version of our Gen 3 core (DZ3G450DIAL).  After the release of the DZ3G450DIAL in mid-2017, we've collected many useful comments and suggestions from our customers for new product development, such as, providing a New Type of Single Pole Phase Dimmer that delivers True Two-Way Dimming functionality, which is more commonly found with Smart Dimmers associated with a Mobile APP.

New Type of Single Pole Dimmer!
Not only can be used individually, the biggest differentiator of our DZ4G450MULT is that the Single Pole Dimmer can be connected together with other units to form a loop to Control the Same Set of Lamps at Multiple Locations. This is something that has not been found in the textbooks and is forbidden in the traditional Two-Way Wiring approach; see our earlier video of a comparison of Two-Way Dimming based on Two-Way Switching approach with our Multi-Way Dimmer for background info.  

Wiring Advantages: No SPDT, No Travelers with Traditional Two-Way Wiring!
By adopting the DZ4G450MULT solution, a proprietary lighting control loop can be formed based on simple wiring that requires only Live-wire connections (to each Dimmer) and Low Voltage Data line connections (among the Dimmers). Compared to traditional Two-Way wiring, our wiring is much simpler and does not require specific switches, like SPDT switches, and hence, save some of the Connection Wires. As the same methodology can be applied to even more locations, the advantages of our Multi-Way Dimmers would be even more obvious when more locations are required to cover.

Scene-Setting for Easier Control 
Furthermore, each DZ4G450MULT also has a Scene-Setting feature that allows quick selection of the Brightness Level for those who are required to adjust the lights on a daily basis, such as in Coffee Shops. Not only for Brightness Control, in this video, we used a Bridgelux COB that provides CCT in range of 1800 - 3000K to illustrate Cool White vs. Warm White CCT Selection and fine-tuning the brightness at the pre-set levels.

Modern Looking Plates & Advanced LED Dimming Technology
In this video, we've used the new Schneider AVATAR On series wall plates for our dimmer module installation, which gives a new look and feel of our dimmer offer. With Black and White Control Buttons as our Standard Offers, the combination represents a good balance of modern design wall plate and our state-of-the-art LED Dimming technology.
