Maximum light bulbs

Is there a maximum number of light bulbs per gang or is it only the total wattage that matters? I have a chandelier with 12 light bulbs. I can use 12 G9 33w halogens or 12 4W LEDs.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The maximum wattage for a given type of lighting is the key point from the point of view of the dimmer module, but during testing we have found that more than 10 LED lamps on a single dimming circuit tends to guarantee buzzing and/or flickering even if they are within the capacity of the particular dimmer module.

For BG Electrical dimmers a mounting box depth of 35mm to avoid pinching of wiring or unexpected heat build-up in the modules.

Hi
At the present, my ceiling lamps have standard bulb ( 60w each) with 2 G-2 Way standard switch.
I like to install two ceiling lamps in my long living room, each light has 3x 60w low bulbs.
Q: Which double dimmer switch with 2G-2Way should I have, with 250W, 300W or 400W?

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Your current lights have 180W of lighting each, so a 250W, 300W or 400W dimmer module would cope with each light easily.
If you plan to combine the two lights onto a single switch this would bring you up to 360W so only a 400W dimmer would be capable of controlling them.

Answer: 
The capability for dimming is dependant on the lamps (bulbs) used. The lamps would need to be suitable for Leading Edge dimming as all BG dimmers are leading edge compatible only.
