Besides energy saving, controllability is the next highly expected feature of LED Lighting over Traditional Lighting. However, such a control aspect seems to be missing in daily applications. Since 2015, we've been developing & marketing Phase Dimmers* and related products to address LED dimming control

Driven by our project field experience, we developed a new type of Tunable White control using Phase Dimming & 0-10V technologies, which gives our Tunable White Controller (DZ1G300TUNE) & Dynamic Lighting Controllers (DZ2G300TUNE_TOGG / _PUSH). It's our goal to lower the technical and costs barriers for different Circadian Lighting or Commercial applications that desire Multi-Purpose Lighting.

* Our 450W / 220-240Vac Single Live-wire Operational Trailing-edge LED Phase Dimmers released to market includes DZ2G450DIAL & DZ1G450CAPS (2015), DZ3G450DIAL (2017), DZ4G450MULT (2018). In 2017, our DZ3G450DIAL was listed as a SORAA® Compatible dimmer. In Q2 2021, an Enhanced version of DZ3G450DIAL has been available.

In this Application Video Library, we shared a number of interesting topics on LED dimming or how our products can be applied in different scenarios.

Two-Way Dimming Operation Review & Introduction to Multi-Way Dimmer Product Concept

In this video, we first updated that our DZ3G450DIAL had recently completed two restaurant dimming projects in Shangri-La Hotel in Malaysia (See our Job Reference). We then reviewed the typical Two-Way Dimming operation based on a functional demo using 2x DZ3G450DIAL with different Dimmable LED Lamps. 

For the Typical Two-Way Dimming Operation, the lamp can be switched On/Off at either location, but Brightness Control can only be done at One Location. To address Dimming the Same Lamp Continuously at Different Locations, we introduce a new product concept with our functional demo to show how the dimming operation can be done with the New Multi-Way Dimmers

(Left) Dimming a CCT Changeable Downlight at Location 1
(Right) Dimming the Same Downlight for a Different CCT at Location 2

Since more than two Multi-Way Dimmers can easily be connected In Parallel, it means that creating More Access Locations for Dimming the Same Lamp is also Possible. Furthermore, the Wiring of the new Multi-Way Dimmers would be much Easier than Traditional Three-way Operation

Possible Applications for Multi-Way Dimmers:
  1. In the master bedroom, the same reading lamp can be dimmed on either side of the bed, as well as at the door entrance.
  2. In the office main conference room, where the track lights and other lighting fixtures can be dimmed at either entrance.
Given these new features and benefits, it’s our belief that more functionalities of LED Dimming can be achieved with this type of new design.
