Hamilton Hartland Screwless White Plastic 1 Gang 2 Way 400W Push Dimmer

Having a dimmer on a lighting circuit is a very popular option these days, and for good reason. Not only can it help create a relaxing space after a long day, as it uses less power to light the bulbs, it saves money on your electric bill too. An absolute minefield in technical jargon, it can be difficult to know which dimmer to go for. WIth its slim bright white plastic front plate and corresponding control knob, this 1 gang 2 way dimmer switch certainly looks the part, beautifully matching the rest of the Hartland CFX range to keep all your switch plates and sockets the same.

The Hamilton Hartland CFX stainless steel 1 Gang dimmer is a 400W leading edge push switch dimmer. Leading edge means that it dims your lights by reducing the A/C cycle by switching the power off briefly on the leading edge of the input waveform by means of a Triac, resulting in a lower light level with less power used. In this Leading Edge format, it means that although advances are happening all the time, it is only compatible with lamps that have a tungsten filament, ie Incandescant or Halogen with a minimum load of 60W. It is worth noting that when using halogen bulbs, the rating of the dimmer must be de-rated by 25%, in this case from 400W to 300W. 

The 2 way switching capability of the 7WC1X40WH means it can be used in a circuit that switches the same light from two different locations, however one of those locations must be a 2 way switch. It is not possible to have two dimmers on a 2 way circuit. Fully compliant with BS5518:1977 Specification for electronic variable control for tungsten filament lighting.

As with all Hamilton ranges, the Hartland CFX White Plastic is an extensive family, incorporating everything from double sockets and 45 Amp cooker switches to TV, phone and data. If there is something out of the ordinary you require, it's bound to be available in the modular ranges so with the matching Euro and Grid plates you can be sure that all your white plastic switchgear is giving a uniform decorative look.
