Status

Tap the Status tab to view the status of the dimmer or switch.

Min/Max

Tap the Min/Max tab to set the minimum and maximum dimmer level.

Set the Dimmer Min Level and Dimmer Max Level:

  • Dimmer Min Level: The lowest level that the lights will dim to. This may help prevent flickering at low levels.
  • Dimmer Max Level: The highest level that the lights will raise to. This will prevent the lights from being too bright in the room when at full brightness.

Curve Type

Tap the Curve Type tab to configure the curve type that is used to dim the load. Select Linear or Logarithmic based on the load type.

Set the Curve Type:

  • Linear: Dim the load using a linear dimming curve.
  • Logarithmic: Dim the load using a logarithmic dimming curve.
  • Custom: Dim the load using a custom dimming curve. Create the dimming curve using Crestron Toolbox™ software.

Load Type

Tap the Load Type tab to match the type of load that is connected to the dimmer.

Set the Load Type:

  • Local Settings: Dims the load using the dimming mode set locally on the dimmer.
  • Auto: Dims the load using forward or reverse phase dimming. The dimmer selects the best dimming mode based on the type of load that is attached.
  • Reverse: Dims the load using reverse phase dimming (trailing-edge dimming). Typically used with incandescent, dimmable LED, or electronic low-voltage (ELV) loads.
  • Forward: Dims the load using forward phase dimming (leading-edge). Typically used with magnetic low-voltage (MLV) loads.
  • Non Dim: The load type is not dimmable. The dimmer functions a switch and switches the load between full on (100%) and full off (0%). Ramp and fade times are ignored. Overrides the functionality set on the dimmer.
