Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unsuitable for LED dimming Used this with 3nr Osram dimmable LED lamps - 9w each. Flickered badly, no matter how I set the switch up. Going to try a trailing edge dimmer from varilight instead. This was easy to install, and would be ok for incandescent bulbs... although theres a very slight buzz which would eventually drive me insane.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dimmer After trying All the brands for led screw fix had, this one was the one. Does a little noise but it is so low that you will need to be seating next to it to hear it. With All the other brands, the led lights (9 of them) were flicking on low settings, with this dimmer you can get the right setting for you by adjusting it via a little screw at the back. Does the job for me

Is this suitable for 300 Watts?

Asked by: sidnee
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All British General Push on/off Dimmer switch modules are Leading Edge type and have varying switching capacities depending on the lighting type being controlled. The current module will cope with 60-400W of Tungsten Filament lamps, 50-400W for Mains Voltage Halogen lamps, 35-350W for Low Voltage (transformed) Halogen lamps, 10-100W for Compact Fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or, when appropriately adjusted, 5-50W for LEDs.

can we use as 2 way switch connecting the stairwell

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All British General dimmer modules can be used in a 2 or more way switching circuit in conjunction with regular 2 way and intermediate rocker switches. They are not designed for multiple dimmers to be in the same lighting circuit though.

is this dimmer suitable for LED lamps ?

Asked by: Ginger10
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All British General dimmer switches manufactured since the beginning of 2015 have adjustable modules which can be `turned down' into a mode which makes them compatible with dimming 5-50W of Leading Edge dimmable LED lighting.

can i use this dimmer with halolite he-se60

spacer required

Will this fit in a shallow box?
Asked by: Spooly
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. It is normally advisable to install BG dimmers into 35mm deep boxes to allow clearance for wiring between the module and the rear of the box. If wiring is routed very carefully it can be possible to fit a dimmer into a shallow box but you would run the risk of overheating and/or pinching wires behind the module.
