Recom Releases Dedicated Triac Dimmer for LED Lighting

Modern lighting solutions offer considerably more than just a means to switch luminaires on and off. Continuously adjustable brightness creates atmosphere. Due to the rise of LED lighting, the consumed energy has also decreased. These things continue to pose new challenges to dimmers. While the base load of an incandescent bulb is about 50W or more, dimmers now must also operate with the significantly lower input power of an LED system.

The solution is a dimmer that reliably operate from 7W, such as those of the RECOM REDIM series. These dimmers and the RECOM RACT20 LED driver series are ideally matched and provide a smooth dimming curve and deep dimming down to zero. The dimmers are designed for installation in mounting boxes which meet DIN 49073. The connection is made safely and easily with screw terminals that ensure a secure hold for flexible or rigid conductors (2x2.5mm²). The basic light level can be adjusted individually and easily for a customized lighting solution. To be compatible with all common switches, an adapter is included as a standard.

The devices can be used for LED-luminaires as well as for energy-saving-lamps, low-voltage-halogen lamps and even incandescent bulbs. The warranty is 5 years.
