CLS-EXP-DIMU

iLux® Universal Dimmer Expansion Module

  • Works with Crestron iLux®, CLW[2], DIN, and CLX series dimmers
  • Emulates the characteristics of the dimmer that is controlling it


Visit the Crestron® Lighting Fixture Compatibility page to find out which Crestron lighting devices have been tested and are compatible with third party lighting fixtures.

The CLS-EXP-DIMU enables the expansion of Crestron iLux® Integrated Lighting System (CLS-C6 series) and other Crestron® lighting dimmers to allow dimming of both forward and reverse phase type loads. Supported loads include LED[1], electronic low-voltage, magnetic low-voltage, incandescent, neon/cold cathode, or 2-wire dimmable fluorescent. A single model supports 120, 230, or 277 Volt loads up to 16 Amps.

The CLS-EXP-DIMU simplifies installation by auto-detecting the dimmable load type connected to it and selecting the appropriate operating mode to control that load. Reverse phase (trailing edge) mode supports incandescent and electronic low-voltage load types, while forward phase (leading edge) mode handles magnetic low-voltage, neon, and other inductive load types.

Any output channel of the iLux system can be used to control the CLS-EXP-DIMU to dim a fully loaded circuit. It is also compatible with CLW-Series[2] in-wall dimmers and select CLX-Series lighting control modules[3]. The metal enclosure is designed for mounting to a vertical surface[4], and can be installed in an environmental air-handling space above a suspended ceiling. Conduit knockouts are provided on the bottom and lower sides. All connections are made via screw terminals behind the front cover.
