1 GANG 1 WAY AND 2 WAY SWITCH

ADDITIONAL FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

This switch has been designed for installing in a 16mm deep wall box. It is therefore suitable for retrofit installations providing: a) Cables enter from the top of the wall box b) Wall box does not protrude from the wall

If cables enter from the side of the wall box then it is likely that it will need replacing with a deeper 25mm box.

Individual conductor lengths shall be no longer than 65mm including 10mm bared copper for termination.

It is also recommended that the individual conductors, once connected, are dressed around the sides of the switch to ease switch installation in the box.

3. Remove any plaster debris and dust from the inside of the mounting box (wall box). Ensure that the heads of any box fixing screws do not protrude into the box.

4. For the best mounting results and visual appearance, it is recommended that prior to installation, the mounting surface beneath the accessory frontplate is first prepared to ensure that it is flat and all high spots have been removed.

5. Certain accessories may require that the top and bottom lugs in 1 gang, 4 lug boxes, are bent inwards and out of the way to ensure the correct installation within the box.

6. Before installing accessories, ensure cable is of the correct rating and type.

7. Remove the clip-on front plate by holding the accessory in your hand with the front plate facing away from you. Place your thumbs over the two plastic lugs on the top edge and press outwards. The front plate should lift away from the body.

8. The layout of the terminal connections may differ between fittings, carefully check the location of the terminal connections before wiring.

CIRCUIT AND OTHER EQUIPMENT COMPATIBILITY

To ensure optimum performance and reliability is obtained from this dimmer switch during its lifetime the following recommendations and precautions should be followed as appropriate to the type of dimmer:

CIRCUITS

It is recommended that the lighting circuit incorporating this dimmer is protected by a 6A or up to a 10A maximum Type B miniature circuit breaker.

Only use two-way (push) dimmers in two-way switching circuits. Only use one two-way dimmer in a two-way switching circuit.

LAMPS

These dimmer switches are suitable for dimming incandescent lamps and dimmable CFL lamps only and are NOT to be used with Fluorescent lamps,

Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps of any description or motor loads.

When using mains voltage Tungsten Halogen lamps, it is essential that these types of lamps incorporate internal fuses and are from quality lamp manufacturers. The use of inferior

27

TELEPHONE SOCKETS

1. Master sockets should only be fitted by an authorised engineer.

2. Secondary sockets are for adding extensions. These may be from a master socket or from another secondary socket. The procedure is the same for both arrangements. The maximum number of extension sockets is normally 5.

3. The unit is suitable for mounting on a 1 gang flush mounting box (wall box) with a minimum depth of 25mm.

4. On the reverse side of the socket there are two rows of terminals numbered 1 to 6. Terminals are connected using

4 core telephone cable.

Terminals 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the master socket are connected to terminals 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the secondary socket. As long as the same cable colour is used for the same terminal on each socket, the actual colours used are not important.

5. Terminals will either be of the screw connectors or insulation displacement connectors (IDC). To attach the wire to IDC type terminals, position the wire as shown in Fig. 1, leaving

12mm overhanging.

Press the wire into the connector using the tool provided, and remove any excess wire.

33

1 AND 2 GANG BLANK PLATES

If using the blank plate to cover the position of an existing accessory, ensure that any remaining cables are isolated and terminated at a convenient junction. Where possible remove the cables from inside the wall box. If the cable cannot be isolated, ensure that the bare ends of the live and neutral cables are terminated separately, within suitably sized terminal blocks. The terminal blocks should then be covered with insulating tape for additional safety. Any earth cables must be sheathed in green/yellow sleeving and connected to the earth terminal in the wall box. In all instances, it is important that the earthing circuit is maintained when removing an accessory.

1 GANG 2 GANG low quality lamps without internal fuses is not recommended and will invalidate any guarantee or warranty supplied with the dimmer switch.

Unless Compact Fluorescent (CFL) lamps are marked

‘Dimmable’ they must NOT be used with these dimmer switches. Use of non-dimmable CFL lamps may permanently damage the dimmer or the lamp and will invalidate any guarantee or warranty supplied with the dimmer switch.

It is recommended that a maximum number of 5 dimming

CFL lamps only should be connected to an individual dimmer switch.

LOW VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS

Only use Low Voltage dimmers with transformers. Do not use mains voltage dimmers.

Always check transformer compatibility BEFORE installation and if in doubt always check with the dimmer Helpline or the transformer manufacturer

The Low Voltage dimmer switches use leading edge (phase delay) dimming technology and must therefore be used with compatible good quality dimmable electronic or wire-wound transformers. Trailing edge (phase cut) dimmable transformers must not be used.

28

6. Telephone sockets fitted with metal front plates are fitted with earth terminals. The earth terminals on the socket should be connected to the earth terminal in the wall box by means of a short length of copper wire. If the wire is bare, it could be sleeved with green/yellow sleeving.

If the accessory to be removed is on a ring main it is important that, after removal, the connections for the ring circuit are maintained. This can be achieved by connecting all the live cables together, and then all the neutral cables together with suitably sized terminal blocks. The terminal blocks should then be covered with insulating tape for additional safety. All earth cables must be sheathed in green/yellow sleeving and connected to the earth terminal in the wall box.

In the case of metal blanking plates fitted with earth terminals, the earth terminal on the plate should be connected to the earth terminal in the wall box by means of a short length of copper wire.

34

Do NOT mix electronic and magnetic transformers on the same dimmer switch.

It is recommended that a maximum number of 5 Low Voltage transformers should only be connected to an individual dimmer switch.

It is recommended that dimmable electronic transformers be loaded to at least 70% of their rated maximum wattage.

When running multiple lamps on dimmable electronic transformers ensure that all lamps are working correctly.

Replace failed lamps as soon as possible as a single failed lamp may cause flickering of other lamps.
