It is a perfect complement to modern LED lights: The new universal dimmer from Kopp. The built-in device can not only cope with different loads and illuminants, but also with switches from other manufacturers. Thus Kopp offers a dimmer that belongs to the standard repertoire of every installer.
Until now, every light source needed a suitable dimmer. Those who had decided on a load type had to stay with it. Otherwise, humming dimmers or flickering lights threatened. With the universal dimmer from Kopp, not only LEDs can be controlled, but also classic incandescent lamps, 230 V halogen lamps and 12 V halogen lamps with electronic or conventional transformers. This is made possible by automatic load detection. The flush-mounted dimmers are supplied in automatic mode. When the voltage is applied, the built-in device detects whether an inductive or capacitive load is present. In addition, the operating mode can also be switched manually from phase control to phase control and vice versa. The dimmer is equipped with a DIP switch for this purpose.
Installation for compatibility and convenience
In combination with LED, the universal dimmer from Kopp shows its strengths to the full. More and more consumers are converting to particularly energy-efficient lighting. The minimum brightness can be adjusted over a wide range to suit the respective LED luminaire. The universal dimmer from Kopp thus prevents the lamp from flickering and always achieves an optimum result.
Kopp also pays special attention to compatibility and comfort during installation. The flush-mounted dimmer bases are suitable for all switch ranges from Kopp and for the products of other brand manufacturers. A shaft adapter (axle adapter) from 4 mm to 6 mm for use in the dimmers of other switch makes is included in the scope of delivery. This makes the universal dimmer from Kopp ideal for renovation projects in which the existing switches are to be retained.
Matching LED dimmers for different light sources
In addition to the universal dimmer, Heinrich Kopp GmbH is presenting three new LED dimmers at Light + Buliding. Today, the majority of LED luminaires available on the market are designed for dimming by phase control or phase section. Depending on the light source, Kopp offers one RL dimmer with a rated output of up to 100 W and two RC dimmers with 50 W and 150 W respectively.
