WHAT DOES DIMMERS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

dimmers

Dimmer

Dimmers are devices used to vary the brightness of a light. By changing the voltage waveform applied to the lamp, it is possible to vary the intensity of the light output. Although variable-voltage devices are used for various purposes, the term dimmer is generally reserved for those intended to control light output from resistive incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent lights and light-emitting diodes. More specialized equipment is needed to dim fluorescent, mercury vapor, solid state and other arc lighting. Dimmers range in size from small units the size of a light switch used for domestic lighting to high power units used in large theatre or architectural lighting installations. Small domestic dimmers are generally directly controlled, although remote control systems are available. Modern professional dimmers are generally controlled by a digital control system like DMX or DALI. In newer systems, these protocols are often used in conjunction with ethernet. In the professional lighting industry, changes in intensity are called “fades” and can be “fade up” or “fade down”.
