Rated 5 out of 5 by from V Pro Trailing Edge Dimmer Two words "the nuts"! Used with LAP dimmable 5.3w LED's works perfectly! Used the programming mode only to set the minimum brightness to a lower/preferred setting but otherwise worked straight out of the packet. Can use a a straight swap without programming at all. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for LED GU10's The best dimmer switch I've come across for LED bulbs, especially GU10's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dims like a boss This dimmer was bought to replace a failed one, and also to upgrade to LED dimming. It's solidly made, terminals are easily accessible and recessed and the dimmer works beautifully. The soft-start caught me out initially, but I now realise it's an excellent feature; I mean when do bulbs blow? When you switch on normally. This should extend the life of bulbs by limiting initial current.

Does this come with a a pattress/adaptor to allow it to be fitted in an existing 16mm back box

I believe the similar MK dimmer includes such an adaptor

No instructions found on Varilight website on how to adjust dimmer for LED lamps. My sister has thrown the original instructions away and because the first lamps were non LED the problem of flickering didn't exist.

Just need basic instruction on how to adjust the dimmer?
Asked by: JJBoy
Hi JJBoy, thanks for your question. The instruction leaflet can be found on the Varilight website under Technical-Instruction Leaflets-V-Pro Intelligent Dimmers. You will want to look at the sections titled 'How to change your driving mode' and 'How to perform a factory reset'. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Switch on state

When the knob is pushed to turn the lights on, do they come on at full power requiring you to turn them down, or do they come on at the level previously set prior to switch off?
Asked by: TheOldManse
Hello TheOldManse, thanks for your question. They come on at whatever level the knob is set to at the off position, full brightness, minimum brightness, or anywhere in between. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Does this switch make the leds buzz?

Asked by: Westhammer
Hi Westhammer, thanks for your question. There is nothing in this dimmer that can make LEDs buzz, and if your LEDs are buzzing under any dimming load, there is a fault in that particular lamp, and should be replaced. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Asked by: Elec17
