I am installing 12 x suspended LED fittings in an office. They are on two switches. The fitting itself comes with a 5 core cable. How do I switch this. Do I need on/off and momentary switch or something else. See attached pic. Any ideas gratefully accepted.
Recently replaced a single pendent (Dimmable LED GLS lamp) with a 5 arm chandelier style fitting which client wants candle lamps (No shades and would agree, candle lamps would look best).
Existing dimmer is an Aurora LED (Green) but the dimmable lamps he (client) supplied (off the shelf at a...
I purchased a dimmable touch table lamp in B&Q a few weeks ago.
I ensured I purchased the correct dimmable G9 bulbs, but on getting it home, discovered that the touch function only turns the lamp on. It doesn't cycle through the various dim levels on each touch, and the only way to turn...
I’m replacing my bathroom pull cord switch with a quieter one (that has a dimmer function that we’ll probably never use) and the original one had the live to COM and neutral (with brown sleeve) to L1. However this new pull switch has a IN L and N and a LOAD L and N and I’m a bit...
Hoping someone wouldn’t mind answering a quick question for me.
I have 2 dimmable touch lamps in the bedrooom. I have fitted them both with LEDs which are dimmable. The dimming function works fine and there is no flickering, however there is a buzzing noise from the lamp when not on...
Bro currently has a half-dozen old R80 ceiling downlighters in his even older flat. He's having the ceiling reboarded and is also looking to advance at least one part of his life to the 21st century, so would like LEDs there as a replacement.
A must is that these new lamps are...
Now, over the years, I've fitted loads of LED downlights - 100s if not 1000s by now - just like you guys/gals probably. They always work, but this week they don't:
Four 5W dimmable LED downlights. Varilight 100W dimmer - minimum load either 0W or 10W depending which spec you read. This dimmer...
Hi guys, just wondered if anyone knew of any "mini" recessed downlights that are dimmable. Looking for something that's ideally no bigger than 50mm diameter in brushed Chrome.
I can't seem to find anything and the customer wants ones that are smaller than normal.
To be clear I am still new to the job and this is the first time I've dealt with this situation.
I'm installing LED panel lights in a suspended ceiling, I've used dimmable drivers connected to the switched live and neutral on the input. And live and neutral on the output.
So I changed 10 x halogen MR16's for 10 x Megaman dimmable 5.5w LED's along with a VPro dimmer (rated up to 10 LED's)
When the lights are switched on, they are silent but after 10 -15 minutes they start buzzing - the lamps, not the dimmer.
I swapped the dimmer for a standard switch today, and...
So I've learned a lot about dimmers on this last job. The customer wanted everything downstairs on dimmers and boy has it been a learning curve.
I've split a lighting circuit and the customer has asked for 2 x st64 led bulbs on pendants to be put on a dimmer. The problem is they're...
Afternoon all, looking if anyone can point me in the right direction.
I'm looking for a dimmmable 10w flood light (integrated)
Well aware I could use older style with dimmable lamp but looking for something that looks a little better.
Recently fitted a Saxby dimmable driver and a GE brand dimmable 7watt LED lamp. When I turn the switch on, the lamp does not illuminate, but if I remove the lamp and re-insert it into the lamp holder It illuminates. When I try to dim it, the dimmable lamp just goes out and will not switch back...
Was wondering if anyone can shed some light here .
Have a customer who has had work done on his flat.
They have installed an led strip around a ceiling bulkhead (non dimmable) and a pendant style led (dimmable) light in the centre of the bulkhead which run off the same supply and controlled...
Just a few questions regarding dimming LED lights. Digital and analogue. Came across a few problems when changing from fluorescent tubes dimmable to LED dimmable.
1. Light fittings are digital dimmable with fluorescent tubes. Changed to digital dimmable LED. But now when switching the...
haven't really use much LED before!
any reason why one of these: https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/VLGJP100WMG.html
will not work with 6 of these: https://www.downlights.co.uk/click-inceptor-micro.html
and then another dimmer to control 1 of LED-Filament Bulbs | Energy Efficient Lighting...
A friend has asked its possible to put 3 spots in a bulkhead outside his house so they're dim between dusk and dawn then turn on full when movement is detected through a PIR. I've searched for a dimmable photocell but haven't had any joy. The spots will obviously be IP65 and will be LED, again...
im not to clued up on downlights but have changed the whole house to led every spot light in the house is gu10 which is great but in my bathroom 5 are GU10 an the shower extractor is MR16 the problem is she wants them to dim - just wondering what I do next do they even do a gu10 extractor...
