Futronix stylish dimmer face plates are superbly finished to match any décor. The Futronix P50 dimmers feature 3 levels of brightness. Once programmed, your settings will be remembered – even with the power switched off.

Energy Savings using P50

Dimming lighting saves energy. Bulb life is also prolonged by 30% because fading a lamp is gentler on the filament than just switching it on or off.

LED lamps & Energy Saving

Futronix dimmers are compatible with most quality, dimmable LED lamps – Futronix have tested many well known brands and have produced a recommendation sheet based on that experience. *

The best lighting designers use LED's especially for accent lighting, and blend their schemes with other lamp types such as tungsten and halogen. By mixing different lamp types together a more attractive blend of overall lighting can be achieved.

Dimming the classic warm colours of tungsten or halogen lighting saves energy. Bulb life is also prolonged by 30% because fading a lamp is gentler on the filament than just switching it on or off.
