  • Dimmer technology breakthrough!Sparking a revolution in dimmer technology, HPM Legrand is launching a full range of universal push button dimmers. With the new technology, contractors are now able to dim a load 2 ways thanks to the inclusion of a secondary (or slave) mechanism (450SM) within the new range. And, with no accompanying switches required, up to 6 dimmer mechanisms can be easily installed on a standard 6 gang plate. Standard light switches can also easily be upgraded to a dimmer - contractors simply exchange the switch mechanisms for a new dimmer mechanism.

    Available in white, cream, black and matt silver (with either white or black trim), the dimmers work with both electronic and iron core transformers for greater flexibility and can be retrofitted onto existing HPM plates. Features include:
