This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2012 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Lutron’s family of C*L dimmers.
The C*L dimmer works not only with today’s most popular lamps like incandescent and halogen, but also with dimmable CFLs and LEDs, which are expected to become even more widely adopted over the next 10 years. By installing one of these new dimmers, homeowners are able to reliably control the widest range of dimmable light sources available in the market today.
Lutron’s C*L dimmers have been engineered to specifically address issues commonly found when dimming CFLs with standard incandescent dimmers, including lights dropping out, lights not turning on and lights turning off unexpectedly.
C*L dimmers use Lutron’s HED Technology, which features advanced dimming circuitry designed for compatibility with most high-efficacy lamps to alleviate the aforementioned problems of dimming CFLs and LEDs. And with HED Technology, the dimmers can also dim a mixed load of light sources (i.e., LED and halogen or CFL and LED lamps) on the same circuit.
