The Slide Switch is an on/off wall switch and slide dimmer used for 0-10VDC fluorescent dimming ballasts. When used as a stand-alone device, the slide control provides flicker-free dimming of between 100% and 5% of lamp output. It also provides a selection of 120VAC or 277VAC in either a single-pole or 3-way devices. Current limit is 8.5 amps at 120VAC and 3.7 amps at 277VAC (approximately 1,000 watts). The Slide Switch then allows manual dimming for lights in the room when lower light levels are desired.
