Base for rotary dimmer for the switching and dimming of electronic control gear


Base for a rotary dimmer that is used to switch and dim electronic control gear. A finishing set XXX-31000 and flush surround plate in the colour of your choice must be ordered separately.

Specification description

Base for rotary dimmer for the switching and dimming of electronic control gear. Electronic potentiometer for systems with 1/10 V current control. To be directly connected to e.g. adjustable electronic ballasts (between 50 and 160 units). Activate by pressing on the button and adjust by rotating the knob. Adjustment range depends on the connected electronic control gear and the manufacturer. Max. load flush-mounted switch: 8 lamps. The degree of interference suppression complies with the European standard EN 55015 and with the international standard CISPR15. The electronic potentiometer can be installed instead of standard single-pole switches.

The sockets are equipped with screw terminals for clamping the wires. When mounting in a flush-mounting box with grip surfaces, use claws that can be rotated open using screws with a slotted screwhead (slot 0.8 x 5 mm). The claws, which have a depth of engagement of 31 mm, turn back completely when loosened. The flush-mounting frame is made from 1 mm-thick metal which is galvanized on all sides after cutting, even on the cut edges. On the horizontal and vertical axes, the flush-mounting frame has 4 grooves for screw mounting in flush-mounting boxes. These grooves have a screw aperture of 7 mm. For mounting on panels, the flush-mounting frame is equipped with 4 screw holes (indicated by a screw symbol) with a diameter of 3 mm. The middle of the flush-mounting frame is indicated (chalk line, laser, ..) in both the horizontal and vertical directions, so that mounting one or more mechanisms can be carried out quickly and easily. At the right and left sides, the flush-mounting frame is equipped with folded-up dovetails, allowing for a quick and perfect horizontal coupling of several switches. The folded-up edges on the outside of the base and their continuation to the inside ensure additional robustness. The bases can be coupled vertically with a centre-to-centre distance of 60 x 71 mm by sliding them into each other. They automatically lock into place. For horizontal coupling of bases with a centre-to-centre distance of 71 mm, the base is equipped with two pre-formed lips at the bottom. By folding these lips down over a length of 1 mm, this rests perfectly on the one below and the centre-to-centre distance of 71 mm is guaranteed. The 4 rectangular openings (7 x 2.5 mm) in the flush-mounting frame can compensate for a margin of 1 to 1.2 mm if the flush-mounting box protrudes beyond the plasterwork. In the case of such a margin, the flush surround plate can still butt up perfectly against the wall.
