EBAY



Also on subject of dimmers heard the Hager dimmers can be fitted either end of a 2 way lighting circuit and lights be set from either side of the strappers. using a slave dimmer type idea,

I wish I'd known about this a few weeks ago before getting through 3 expensive fans and installing / uninstalling relays in the circuit to try and get the fan to come on with a dimmer!!

Hi dougie, not sure but I think a previous generation of MK dimmers offered a dimmered and switched output, this sounds like it might be useful for bathrooms where you want to dim the lights and have a switched live for an extractor?

Also maybe in a lounge it could be used to switch on CLF table lamps and dim overhead downlights?

Etc...

i stumbled upon it when looking for a 1gang grid dimmer to dim 9 50watt GU10's, seems a good idea and need to be remembered for future reference.

Seen a few when some people thought a fan in the lounge was the thing to have. Ok that was a long time ago
