Vantage Controls, a brand of Legrand, has added its EasyTouch II Universal Dimming Station (UDS) wall box dimmer to its line of automated lighting control solutions. This one device controls load, scene, or both load and scene, eliminating the need for separate devices for each capability.
The dimmer follows the launch of the brand’s Universal Dimming Module (UDM) and is built using the same adaptive phase technology.
This new dimmer enables simple control of forward-phase or reverse-phase load types, such as LED, providing dealers with the flexibility to adapt to homeowners’ varying lighting and dimming needs without costly electrical and programming changes.
UDS is powered by the local line feed and replaces a standard high-voltage wall switch. It is ideal for the most demanding lighting control projects, from new construction to remodel or retrofit, and allows for incremental expansion to accommodate almost any design or budget. It also supports energy and safety guidelines including California Title 24 and the recent extension of NEMA 2016-SSL7A.
The Station features and benefits include alleviating flicker, wiring, and power quality challenges, and streamlining design. It is available in wired and wireless applications via proprietary two-wire station bus (WireLink) or wireless system (RadioLink.)
UDS ships in Auto Mode which automatically selects the phase for best load performance.
“Vantage continues to launch products that respond to market needs with solutions that support LED migration and provide precise and smooth dimming of multiple lighting sources,” said Mark Moody, product manager at Vantage Controls. “Our products are future ready, meeting the increasing requirements of luxury spaces. In addition, they are built to be intuitive, user-friendly, and easy to install, program, and maintain.”
