This is a Danlers DSSGD MK400W soft start dimmer with slim push button control - a dimmer module to suit MK Grid Plus. Slim buttons give an easy press action. Pressing the button dims or brightens the light to any level. A quick press switches off. Another press returns the lamp softly to its previous brightness. These dimmers can also be used to control the speed of fans and motors. 

The soft start feature electronically ramps up (virtually indiscernible) the output voltage which can greatly increase lamp life, particularly for low voltage lamps.

  • Can be used to dim lights from several locations. 
  • DANLERS soft start grid dimmers can control 40-400W of:
    # Incandescent lamps
    # Mains halogen lamps (must include integral safety fuse)
    # Most directly dimmable compact fluorescent lamps
    # Dimmable electronic transformers (max. 6 transformers). 
  • They are also suitable for controlling 40-250W of dimmable, wire wound, toroidal transformers.
  • This Danlers leading edge soft start dimmers are suitable for fitting into  MK Grid Plus (MK), Crabtree grid (CB) and Eurodata plates (EU). 
  • Suitable for dimming resistive lamps, dimmable transformer low voltage lamps.
  • Suitable for mains halogen lamps without the need of derating (the mains halogen lamps must have an integral thermal safety fuse).
  • The soft start feature prolongs the lamp life.
  • Multi-way switching and dimming can be achieved from any position only by using the complementary DANLERS slave switches.
  • A short press will switch the load off or restore it softly to its previous setting. A holding press will dim the load up and down in turn.
  • The grid module versions fit any position on the appropriate grid or plate system.
  • These dimmers automatically switch off in the event of transformer malfunction, helping to protect the dimmer and the transformer.
