is this ok for three wall lights with two 47w eco halogen bulbs with 60watt equivelent output

will it overheat
Asked by: rockyboy2
Hello rockyboy2, thanks for your question. This load would equal 282W, and the dimmer is rated at 500W, so will be suitable for this application. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

The unit is running 4 X 120 watt halogen bulbs . It gets very hot and makes loud buzzing noise. Is this normal or is it a faulty unit?

Asked by: Middleofnowhere
Hello Middleofnowhere, thanks for your question. The dimmer will get warm and buzz slightly during operation, as with any other dimmer, or electronic component controlling current. One of main ways the dimmer dissipates heat is through the heat sink on the plate, so the dimmer plate will be one of the hottest parts of the dimmer, but it should never be too hot to hold your hand on. Your current setup is very near the maximum load of this dimmer, so this unit is operating near maximum capacity. You would find these symptoms reduced on one of our 700W or 1000W dimmers.

Use with a heater

Is it possible to use this with a patio heater please? The one I have in mind has halogen/quartz heaters, each rated at 500w
Asked by: Markb1981htubdfj
Hi Markb1981htubdfj, thanks for your question. Unfortunately this dimmer is only for use in a lighting circuit, so it unsuitable for this purpose. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.
