dimmer switch installation in Australia

Postby dazza109 » Wed Jul 11, 2007 2:13 pm

Hi I have recently purchased a varilight 3 gang slave dimmer to install in australia. We use the same electricity voltage over here, I had a electrican over to install the switch and did not work I have a Live/Load and Slave in the wiring at the rear. It talks about using a master unit do I need to purchase something else? The elctrican wired in the earth and live feed and the other red to the light still did not work what do we need to do?

Hi Dazza, a bit off centre for us but it sounds like you have got the 'slave ' unit when you should have a 'master' first then if control wanted from elsewhere you add a slave to it, isn't there a makers web site?
Good luck SPARX
