Dimmer system

Romantic meals or a cosy evening in front of the television: Dimmers create the right atmosphere in no time at all. And this can be done in many different ways with Merten: by simple activation of a rotary dimmer, by lightly touching a sensor dimmer or, for maximum convenience, with Merten IR remote control. A special recommendation is given to the universal dimmer insert, which identifies the connected load automatically. Moreover, Merten dimmers are available for all design ranges.

Solutions with dimmers

Some application examples from the Merten product range.

Universal dimmer for energy-saving lamps/LED lamps

VDE-certified

With the introduction of the European Ecodesign Directive, all incandescent lamps will be gradually taken off the market by 2014. This means that LED/energy-saving lamps will be more important than ever.

 

No matter what type of lighting is required, the Merten universal dimmer automatically detects the different dimming principles and adjusts itself accordingly. Even if you change the lighting type later,

you can keep the original dimmer.

 

Examples of dimmable energy-saving lamps:

  • Osram
  • Philips
  • Govena
  • Megaman

 

Examples of dimmable LED lamps:

  • Osram
  • Philips
  • Toshiba
  • LEDON

Remote-controlled sensor dimmer

The TELE sensor dimmer creates an extra level of convenience. It can be switched on or off by lightly touching the sensitive surface; the intensity of the light can be increased or decreased by prolonging the touch contact. An additional advantage: The last brightness setting is stored by the dimmer's memory function, which will then retrieve it automatically the next time the light is switched on. All of this can also be controlled very easily from your sofa, using the infrared remote control.

Sensor dimmer with radio receiver

Sensor covers with radio receivers can be used for switching ohmic loads by inserting them directly onto an electronic switch insert. And if dimming and switching of ohmic or complex loads is required, sensor covers can be combined with universal super dimmer inserts. When combined with a relay switch insert, ohmic and complex loads such as incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, energy-saving lamps or LV halogen lighting can also be controlled.

First class dimming

A dimmer that's got the lot: Easy to operate, multiple functions and a good memory. The convenient dial can do much more than just make the light brighter or darker. For example, the maximum brightness can be limited to 80% just at the touch of a key. Or your favourite brightness levels can be stored using a memory button. The comfort dial even helps you in the dark: With the discreet orientation light, that can also be deactivated when not needed.
