varintens Power Dimmer SDK-AB-05

The varintens SDK-AB-05 is a digital dimmer in trailing edge technology, which on the one hand can be controlled by different types and on the other hand can also control different loads.

Quick Facts

  • trailing edge dimmer
  • 1x 1200W / 5A
  • 0-10V, 1-10V
  • metal housing for optimum heat management
  • robust
  • easy handling

The SDK-AB-05 is a robust dimmer in trailing edge technology. On the one hand it can be controlled by different types and on the other hand it can also control different loads:

  • control via a potentiometer on the internal voltage source, with an external voltage source or also with a sink current source
  • control of light bulbs and high-voltage halogen bulbs as well as low-voltage halogen lamps with electronic transformer
  • also suitable for many types of LED retrofits

An automatic or manual switch-off function extends the application range. The SDK has a regulated (dimmable) output 230V/5A with an integrated switch-on / switch-off function.
