Megaman Chose Varilight’s Dimming Module

Megaman AR111 reflectorFollowing extensive testing of a wide range of dimmer modules available in the UK, Megaman UK has placed the Varilight V-Pro JQP401 dimmer at the top of its list and will now be recommending the unit as its preferred dimmer module.

The Varilight dimmer comes with a factory pre-set to dim to 10% but, as the unit is a smart dimmer, this can be manually programmed quickly and easily to reduce to 1%. The same V-Pro dimmer module can be found across the wide range of decorative metal finishes offered by Varilight.The dimmer can operate between 2 and 10 lamps from the Megaman range irrespective of power and with no de-rating calculations necessary.  During Megaman’s thorough evaluation of various dimmers with 15 Megaman lamps operating at 190, 230, 250 and 260V input, the Varilight V-Pro dimmer emerged as the clear favourite, showing extremely successful results. The lamps used were from a range which included Megaman’s  6W GU10, the new 7W GU10 and 15 x 15W 240v AR111 Reflectors with GU10 base.

John Murphy, Megaman MD commented “This dimmer really is the best on the market and operates successfully with a very large range of lamps - it offers a superb retrofit solution to installers who wish to utilise high quality LED lamps to their best advantage”.

Andrew Wilson, marketing manager  at Varilight, also commented, “We are pleased to be working with Megaman, a recognised and respected global brand, and are delighted with the excellent performance of our V-Pro dimmer series . Megaman lamps are of a very high quality and these superb results confirm those from our own compatibility tests.”.

Megaman will be posting the results, along with some related videos, on Megaman TV channel which will provide customers with advice on what performance they can expect to receive from each brand of dimmer module.
