Varilight GlowFix Module - Load Regulator Description
Designed and manufactured by Varilight to resolve any faint glow left by LEDs on the V-PRO, Eclique and Eclique2 ranges when switched off.
Why Is The Glow There?
Each Varilight switch that can be remote operated has a very small current running through them, even when off, to allow the switch to receive its signal.
Whilst this current would not be picked up on traditional incandescent bulbs and spotlights, the modest load needed on LEDs means that they are more susceptible to smaller loads. This small load, is picked up by the LEDs, making them glow faintly.
LEDs from a range of different manufacturers, including Mirrorstone, suffer from this. The range affected from the Mirrorstone selection of LED light bulbs is the OMNI-LED range in the standard E27, E14, B22 & B15 fittings.
Fixing The Problem And Improving The Performance
Since the introduction of the V-PRO and Eclique ranges, Varilight have sold the GlowFix alongside them to resolve this problem and make LEDs work exactly the same as traditional incandescent bulbs on each of the ranges.
The GlowFix features a minuscule 1w load, making next to no difference on the load of the switch whilst with only the need for one to be installed. It can also be used to optimise the performance of each lamp by increasing the stability when dimmed down to a lower load, maximising the dimming range.
Each GlowFix comes with installation instructions helping guide you when installing the unit. The manual is also downloadable as a PDF for your convenience.
