This is a wall plug dimmer that can be placed between a schuko wall outlet and electric devices, plugged in by cord. It can dim all incandescent lights, high voltage halogen lamps and transformers operated low voltage lamps without any restriction. Special optimization functions support the dimming of the majority of dimmable LED lights and Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs). The device is IP20 rated and can therefore only be used in dry environments. The device offers a Baby-Dim Function which dims down a lamp from a defined level into another defined level in a longer but also definable period (e.g. 20 minutes). An automatic Light-Off function and programmable dimming and switching behavior makes the device a very flexible tool for the inhouse lighting.
