Confirming light switch wiring


Postby Chris_Von_Bron » Sat Dec 08, 2007 10:00 am

Hi all,

I am upgrading a Tenby lightswitch to a Marbo dimmer single 2way 400W and would like confirmation of how to wire up the new dimmer. The light is 3x60W (dimmable) so the 400W is certainly within spec.

Please can you confirm what goes where?

I will have the deepen the recess so that the deeper dimmer will fit, but I have test wired the dimmer and it works perfectly.
