A lighting firm has produced a groundbreaking dimmer switch that is compatible with all types of bulbs.
Dimmer switches often struggle to cope when different light bulbs such as halogen, LED or incandescent types.
But the ALL-Dimmer switch produced by Caelus Lighting works for each type – allowing bulbs to be changed without affecting the dimmer, and saving time and money when buying a new switch.
Inventor Riccardo de Wet, who runs the business in South Africa, said: ‘At last we can forget having to match up switches with specific CFLs or dimmable LEDs because ALL-Dimmer dims it all, including supposedly ‘non-dimmable’ bulbs.
‘ALL-Dimmer is a dimmer switch that’s beyond intelligent dimmers because it doesn’t only detect leading or trailing edge technologies, it has the capability of dimming less costly ‘NON-dimmables’ as well as a combination of different luminaries on the same circuit, although advisable to use one technology on each circuit for uniform dimming.’
ALL-Dimmer was invented and developed to address the limitations experienced by the current dimmers on the market due to the sheer variety of lighting options and problems associated with dimming the array of technologies. The result is a one-size- fits-all dimmer that dims fluorescent lights and CFLs, halogen bulbs, incandescent lights and LED lights, all flawlessly, with the only exception of constant power lamps used specifically to ensure no power fluctuation.
ALL-Dimmer reduces the need for shops to to stock a range of dimmers because it meets every requirement and saves the end user money on bulbs.
Riccardo holds seven patents for dimmer switches – more patents than any individual for dimmable CFL drivers.
