What is a leading edge dimmer switch?

A leading edge dimmer switch is one of the two types of mains dimmer switch – the other being a trailing edge dimmer. The difference between a leading edge and trailing edge dimmer is the part of the AC wave that they cut off. A leading edge dimmer will cut the front edge of each waves half cycle and conversely a trailing edge dimmer with cut the second half of each waves half cycle.

Trailing edge dimmers are the most popular type and confer several advantages when compared to leading edge dimmers such as smoother control, soft start features and silent operation. Varilight dimmer switches offer severable programmable modes including both leading edge and trailing edge dimming, making them adaptable to your lighting needs. All V-Pro dimmer modules also offer a soft start feature and a minimum and maximum brightness setting.

A soft start dimmer is one that slowly brings the lights to their set level when the dimmer switch is turned on, this occurs over the period of around a second. This feature comes as standard with all Varilight intelligent dimmers including the V-Plus and V-Pro dimmer. The soft start feature is designed to extend the life of both the lamps and the dimmer switch itself.
