The connection for each dimmer can be found in the manual of your dimmer reference. The manuals can also be found on the Niko website via the article reference or under "products; lighting and control".
Niko advises that you connect a maximum of 10 LED lamps with a maximum power of 200 W per universal dimmer with standard PLC interference suppression.
Classical dimmers have 1 common profile for all lamps or switch automatically between phase control and reverse phase control depending on the lamp. For the more recent generation universal dimmers with standard PLC interference suppression for LED lamps you can use the dimmer search engine in first instance. It will tell you at which dimming level it is best to configure your dimmer. You will need to do it manually if your lamp reference was not tested by us.
The power consumption for LED lamps is most definitely important, however it is much lower than with traditional lamps such as halogen and incandescent lamps.
In the different dimming levels, a distinction is made between phase control and reverse phase control. This is the way in which a specific lamp is dimmed. One LED lamp is best dimmed in e.g. position LED 1; reverse phase control, the other in LED 2; phase control. The best way to control is not mentioned on the lamp. We aim to provide the best dimming level through the results of our dimmer search engine.
Of the 3 wires connect the brown phase conductor and the blue neutral conductor to the electricity grid. Connect the black connection wire to the lamp. Reconnect it to the neutral conductor of the dimmer. Connect the brown phase conductor to the grid. The black connection wire goes to the lamp which you reconnect to the grid with a neutral conductor.
All Niko universal dimmers now feature integrated PLC interference suppression as standard. Therefore, the dimmer can avoid interference from PLC signals and as a result the lamp will no longer hum, flicker or flash. In addition, the lamp will not flicker as a result of a sudden decrease in the mains frequency (frequency dips up to 3 Hz).
In addition to single-pole switches, a flush-mounting push button dimmer can also be used in two-way or intermediate switches.
We have made sure that via the dimmer search engine, you can easily find a list of lamps from different brands compatible with your dimmer.
