Multi-Way Dimmer

Multi-way dimmers include MultiMate(TM) technology to provide optimised multi-way dimming of LED lamps and drivers, with no new wires.

Th high quality, two-wire phase control wall plate dimmer can be connected in parallel to other MultiMate devices to provide a simple solution to multi-way lighting control.

Although optimised for LED lighting loads, this dimmer also provides excellent compatibility with other common lamp types such as incandescent lamps, 12 V halogen (dichroic) lamps / transformers, and CFLs.

Other products using MultiMate technology include timers, switches, and a motion sensor. These can be used in combination simply by wiring in parallel. Multi-way dimming, with mixed timer / switch / and movement options are quickly and easily achieved with no new wiring.

Multi-way dimmers using MultiMate technology are available in rotary and push-button versions.

How it works

Multi-way devices using MultiMate(tm) technology communicate over the power wiring using special methods patented by Ozuno.

Other systems suffer with higher power use to run radios. This compromises load ratings and load compatibility.

By contrast, MultiMate devices transmit tiny pieces of information between dimmers, switches, and sensors. This information has no effect on lamps, and can’t be seen by a person. It allows ultra-low power consumption electronics, best-in-class minimum load ratings, and excellent load compatibility. Multi-way dimming works over long distances, with multiple lamps and multiple dimmers, timers and switches.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the MultiMate dimmer be used with fans?

Unfortunately MultiMate dimmers are not suitable for use with motor loads, including fans.

How many MultiMate products can be wired in parallel?

We recommend no more than 8 MultiMate control products for dimming, switching, timing or sensing movement on a single circuit.

What is the wiring run distance that can be used with MultiMate products?

Up to 50 metres of conventional mains cable.

My electric utility uses Ripple Control. Every evening all the lights flicker. Will this break your dimmer?

Ripple control is commonly used all around the world for control of off-peak loads, such as water heater and heat banks. It works by adding an extra signal on top of the normal mains power, and this can cause some lamps and dimmers to behave badly.

MultiMate compatible dimmers, timers and switches include special design measures to tolerate Ripple Control. The flickering probably can’t be avoided, but the dimmers will not reset or cause the lighting to flash on and off.
