This is the Forbes and Lomax 3G2TBELL/BMA, a three gang switch composed of one momentary switch and two way dolly switches antique bronze plate, manufactured by Forbes and Lomax.
All momentary switches (contact-closure switches) require an in-line dimming pack to enable them to work as a dimmer, or a relay pack to have an ON/OFF function. The button dimmer controller allows dimming from more than one location, and it can be used to control home automation systems.
The Antique Bronze range has a rich warm hue to the plates making them attractive in both contemporary and traditional interiors. These switches also work particularly well on wood panelling and other unusual surroundings. The plates all have a slightly variable finish which adds to the distinctive look of the range. Many of the early light switches were made in Antique Bronze and the finish became very fashionable in the Art Deco period.
Dimensions: 22.2mm diameter button dimmer, with no plastic trim.
The Antique Bronze range is durable and will stand the test of time. Original Antique Bronze switch plates can be seen in old buildings today still looking great a hundred years on. All socket outlets are available and are supplied with black inserts to complement the dark finish of the plate.
The Forbes and Lomax Momentary / contact closure switches require an in-line dimmer pack to enable them to work as a dimmer. They can be used for lighting control and home automation systems. The dimmer pack has to be located in an accessible void, out of earshot; any noise generated when dimming will come from the dimmer pack - no noise will be emitted from the switch itself.
You can achieve multiple switching locations on one lighting circuit by wiring the buttons in parallel; all the locations must have momentary controls, and each location can be used to dim. However, you cannot use normal switches on the same circuit as the button dimmer.
To use a momenary control as a simple ON/OFF switch, you need to put a link to the in-line relay pack.
Please note: The button dimmer / momentary switch will only work in conjunction with an inline dimmer (see the required items). The way it works is: one in-line dimmer (impulse dimmer) per button dimmer. For 50-1000W 4A dimming you can order the ID0401 and for LED dimming you can use ID0101LE.
