CLW-DIMS

Wall Box Master Dimmer

The CLW-DIMS is a 1000 Watt incandescent dimmer designed to mount in a standard electrical gang box and serve as the master for multipoint dimming control of a single load. Multipoint dimming functionality (similar to 3-way or 4-way switching) is enabled using one CLW-DIMS along with one or more CLW-SLVD Slave Dimmers.

The CLW-DIMS is a 1000 Watt incandescent dimmer designed to mount in a standard electrical gang box and serve as the master for multipoint dimming control of a single load. Multipoint dimming functionality (similar to 3-way or 4-way switching) is enabled using one CLW-DIMS along with one or more CLW-SLVD Slave Dimmers.

Although functional as a standalone dimmer, the CLW-DIMS delivers greatly enhanced functionality as part of a complete Crestron HomeĀ® automation system. Designed to replace any standard in-wall dimmer or light switch, the CLW-DIMS connects to Crestron's PAC2 and PAC2M automation control systems (or any other 2-Series control system) via the Cresnet network to enable extensive automation and control capability.

The CLW-DIMS supports incandescent loads up to 1000 Watts, or magnetic low-voltage loads up to 1000VA/750 Watts. Multiple units may be ganged side-by-side along with other CLW-Series dimmers and switches or non-Crestron devices. (Note: Ganging the CLW-DIMS typically requires the removal of the side heat sink fin on one or both sides of the unit resulting in a derating of its load capacity; see specifications below.) CLW-Series components are available in white, black, and almond and are designed for use with decorator style faceplates (not included).

The three pushbuttons on the CLW-DIMS provide versatile lighting control with up to four possible dimming level presets. The slide switch selects between ADJUST, PRESET, and OFF modes. Dimming levels can be manually adjusted, stored, and recalled using the ADJUST and PRESET modes. Switching to the OFF mode completely disables the dimmer and disconnects all power to the load. A dual purpose LED is included to verify preset storage and serve as a beacon to make the dimmer easy to locate in the dark.

Its connection to the control system allows the functions of the CLW-DIMS to be controlled from touchpanels, keypads, wireless remotes, and computers to support unlimited flexibility for remote control and integration with other devices and systems in the home or office. In the event that communication with the control system is disrupted for any reason, the CLW-DIMS will remain operable to control the lighting circuit.
