RDT500C in-line RF dimmer for Tungsten, Low Voltage Halogen and other trailing edge dimmable loads
A compact 500w RF dimmer designed to fit through the aperture of a standard low voltage down light fitting. The dimmer is connected in-line before the first light fitting, to enable dimming of up to 500w of trailing edge dimmable loads. Controlled from any Rako RAKOM RF device, for example the RCP07W push button RF wallplate.
Designed to fit in a ceiling void or cupboard, the RDT500C dimmer can control up to 500 watts of mains dimmable lighting loads. The unit can also be used for exterior lighting control applications, with the use of a weatherproof IP rated enclosure. The RDT500 dimmer is recommended for use with GU10 lamps due to its better protection against the harsh short-circuits these lamps can give when they fail. Being trailing edge the RDT500 offers quiet dimming with most electronic transformers and can dim those only suitable for use with trailing edge dimmers.
NOT SUITABLE FOR INDUCTIVE OR WIRE WOUND LOADS. The robust microprocessor design combines smooth reliable dimming with dynamic safety features such as auto-resetting over current, temperature shutdown and voltage surge protection. Programmed using either an RCP07 or RCM070 RF wallplate or the RASOFT PC software suite, the unit stores the house, room and channel address plus four preset scene levels in non volatile memory. The RDT500C dimmer can be controlled from any Rako transmitter such as RCP wallplates, RAH hand helds, MB1 timeclocks and forms the foundation of any Rako scene-set system.
