Universal super dimmer insert
If the load on connected wound transformers is
too low, the dimmer may malfunction during
operation. The load on the transformer should
therefore be at least 40 % of the nominal power
of the transformer.

Installing the dimmer
Universal super dimmer insert
introduction
You can use the universal super dimmer insert (referred
to below as dimmer) for switching and dimming ohmic,
capacitive or inductive loads via a sensor cover or via
radio.
The dimmer automatically recognises the connected
load. The built-in memory function can store the
brightness level that was last set (can be switched off).
The dimmer is overload-proof, short-circuit-proof and
hum-free, and has a soft start function which softly
dims up a connected load.

DANGER
Risk of fatal injury from electrical current.
The outputs may carry an electrical voltage even
when the dimmer is switched off. Always
disconnect the fuse in the incoming circuit from
the supply before working on connected loads.
1 Wire up the dimmer for the application.

CAUTION
Bending the contact pins.
The plug prongs on the rear of the sensor cover
can become bent if tilted excessively. Therefore
always plug the sensor cover in as straight as
possible.
Applications:
– Dimmer A as a stand-alone device:
You can connect up to ten extension TELE inserts (art.
no. MTN573998). You can also connect any number of
mechanical extensions (conventional push-buttons).

3 Attach the accompanying sensor cover together
with the frame. Hold the sensor cover so that the
recess at the back is at the bottom to receive the
pin of the push-button insert.
For glass sensor covers: refer to the accompanying
installation instructions.
CAUTION
Damage to the device.
The dimmer requires a minimum load of 25 VA
for operation. If this is not met, the dimmer may
be damaged.
An excessive load will trigger the dimmer's
overload protection. Reducing the connected
load causes the overload protection to deactivate
and the dimmer switches back on.
½
CAUTION
Damage to connected devices.
Connected devices can be damaged if you
connect mixed loads (inductive and capacitive) at
the same time.
½
CAUTION
Damage to the device.
When transformers are used: Only connect
dimmable transformers to the dimmer.
| of overloading and the risk of unsuitable
Do not use dimmers on socket-outlets! The risk
appliances being connected is too high.
Putting the dimmer into operation
A
After installation:
1 switch on the mains voltage.
The connected luminaires flicker for around ten
seconds and then switch off again.
The dimmer has detected the load and is ready for
operation.
| after every interruption to the mains voltage.
The lights will flicker in this way (load detection)
Operating the dimmer
Operate the dimmer via one of the following:
– Sensor cover on the dimmer itself
– Sensor cover on an electrical extension unit
– Mechanical extension unit (conventional pushbutton)
– Radio push-button or remote control (when a
sensor cover with radio receiver is fitted on the
dimmer)
– IR remote control (with TELE sensor cover)
Operation is the same in all cases
Switching/dimming connected luminaires
A
<1s
B
>1s
– Switching on/off: press the button briefly
– Dimming brighter/darker: press the button and hold
it down
Switching the memory function on/off
1 Switch the dimmer on and off at least ten times in
quick succession.
Operate the dimmer using the comfort dial central
plate
See the operating instructions for "Central plate,
comfort rotating regulator for universal super dimmer
insert".
What should I do if there is a problem?
The dimmer regularly dims down or switches off
during operation.
Allow the dimmer to cool down and reduce the
connected load.
The dimmer cannot be switched back on.
– Allow the dimmer to cool down further and reduce
the connected load.
– Rectify any possible short circuits. The dimmer
must now detect the load again. If necessary,
switch on the dimmer once for load detection.
