Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. has introduced a wall receptacle, listed for use with Lutron dimmers, that allows a table or floor lamp to be dimmed with a wall control without using a traditional lamp dimmer.
This new UL-listed Receptacle for Dimming Use (RFDU) provides a National Electrical Code (NEC)-compliant solution for dimming portable lamp loads via a receptacle.
The RFDU is designed to only accept a special Lutron replacement plug and to mechanically reject all other plugs, including those of fans, heaters, vacuums, radios and televisions.
To operate, simply install the replacement plug onto the lamp cord, and plug the replacement plug into the RFDU.
The RFDU is UL-listed for use only with Lutron dimmers, including: Nova® and Nova T*, Diva®, Faedra™, Maestro® and Qoto™, as well as Maestro and Vareo®-style HomeWorks® dimmers, RadioRA® dimmers and GRAFIK Eye® preset lighting controls.
The RFDU is available in 15A and 20A models in a variety of colors.
