The CLWI-DIMUEX delivers native Crestron® dimming control to any light in new or retrofit 230 Volt applications. Featuring reliable infiNET EX® wireless technology, the CLWI-DIMUEX can be installed in virtually any location because of reliable mesh networking. Universal dimming provides automatic compatibility with both forward and reverse phase loads.
Field-Replaceable and Engravable Buttons
The CLWI-DIMUEX features engravable buttons that can be swapped out in the field. Any change in room décor or functionality is easy to handle long after the dimmer or switch has been installed. Positive snap-on fittings require no tools. Configure the dimmer or switch with a large rocker or any combination of up to two adjacent half-size rockers or triple button pad. Each CLWI-DIMUEX ships with a full assortment of blank buttons as well.
Because the CLWI-DIMUEX is attached to the Crestron network, it can also function as a keypad, sending commands to trigger whole-room lighting scenes or distributed audio functions. Supporting up to six buttons, the in-wall dimmer or switch serves as a great control interface in any Crestron system. Its single-box form factor maximizes control capability in a small space while increasing the opportunity for Crestron control in every room. Also available are aesthetically-matched standalone keypads that use Cresnet® or infiNET EX communications.
Ultra-reliable infiNET EX wireless technology provides steadfast two-way RF communications throughout a residential or commercial structure without the need for physical control wiring. Employing a 2.4 GHz mesh network topology, each infiNET EX device functions as an expander, passing command signals through to every other infiNET EX device within range (approximately 150 feet or 46 meters indoors), ensuring that every command reaches its intended destination without disruption.
The CLWI-DIMUEX communicates with a Crestron control system via an infiNET EX Wireless Gateway (model CEN-GWEXER, DIN-AP3MEX, or MC3). Up to 100 infiNET EX devices may coexist on a single wireless network, and every non-battery-powered device that is added to the network effectively increases the range and stability of the entire network by providing multiple redundant signal paths. Built-in Dynamic Frequency Allocation continuously monitors RF conditions, automatically selecting the clearest channel to prevent interference from neighboring networks, cordless phones, and microwaves.
In addition to field replaceable buttons, the CLWI-DIMUEX features screw-clamp connectors for simplified wiring and reduced installation time and material costs. So slim, the CLWI-DIMUEX can be installed in square gang boxes making them the perfect choice for both new and retrofit projects.
The CLWI-DIMUEX supports dimming control of the same lighting load from more than one location—without requiring a special remote dimmer. Connect any standard maintained or momentary switch to the "remote" terminal on the CLWI-DIMUEX for on/off control. Momentary "push-button" switches provide full dim up/down and on/off control. Easily replace existing dimmers and switches wired in a traditional multi-way circuit with dim control from every location, or design new projects to accommodate remote dimmers wherever desired.
