Hamilton Adds Trailing Edge Dimmer To New Linea Range


To provide flicker free and near silent operation Hamilton Litestat has developed an Intelligent Trailing Edge Push On/Off Dimmer which has been included within its new slimline Linea range which has been developed to address the higher specification demands required for the top end of the market.

Featuring split finishes, along with the company’s Patented CFX concealed fixing system, Linea affords seamless styling and sophistication. Available in a choice of five different styles including the Linea Rondo in the exciting new ‘Piano Black’, its exclusive design has minimized the plate depth to create a modern appearance that adds lustre to an interior design scheme.

This new Push On/Off Dimmer features a 250W/210va dimmer module, from Hamilton’s Grid It Range, which has unidirectional protection and is able to detect a number of fault conditions including over current, no load protection and temperature cut-out. When a fault is detected the dimmer will switch off and either automatically turn back on when the fault is rectified or, in the case of the no load condition, it will need the fault to be resolved before it can be manually switched on. This capability reduces the risk of damage to either the dimmer or any transformers in the lighting circuit.

Suitable for use with tungsten, low voltage and halogen light sources, as well as electronic transformers this new grid dimmer module has incorporated ‘soft start’ technology to prolong lamp life, whilst removing the necessity to de-rate for mains voltage halogen lamps. Multi-positional control can be achieved with the addition of push to make rocker switches which are connected to the master push on /off dimmer unit via a suitable 2 core plus earth cable. Control from these switches allows for on /off function only

This latest product innovation from Hamilton Litestat has been manufactured to comply with the requirements of BSEN 60669-2-1 and designed to fit wall boxes complying with BS4662:2006.
