Dimming control switch for Catering Lamp
Our UVR/S controller also known as a Phase Angle Power Regulator is designed for use in kitchen environments to control heat lamps by dimming the output, thereby adjusting the temperature. These are single-phase 230VAC. The load current has a maximum capacity of 17A. The module gives full adjustment of the output voltage from 0 to 98% of the load (scale plate included).
A large in-house triac enabled the unit to handle high inrush currents. Easy front panel mounting via a single hole and locknut arrangement.
The use of these types of power controllers is where the simplicity of control is required. They operate on the same principle as a light dimmer by slicing the voltage wave smaller and smaller to reduce the power output.
They are used to control catering heat lamps in catering equipment and infrared lamps on vacuum forming machines as they prevent the blinking on-off effect.
They have a maximum working capacity of 17A which equates to 4000w with the correct heat sink and heat-sink paste applied.
Also replacement for the QVR/S units.
