Besides energy saving, controllability is the next highly expected feature of LED Lighting over Traditional Lighting. However, such a control aspect seems to be missing in daily applications. Since 2015, we've been developing & marketing Phase Dimmers* and related products to address LED dimming control.
Driven by our project field experience, we developed a new type of Tunable White control using Phase Dimming & 0-10V technologies, which gives our Tunable White Controller (DZ1G300TUNE) & Dynamic Lighting Controllers (DZ2G300TUNE_TOGG / _PUSH). It's our goal to lower the technical and costs barriers for different Circadian Lighting or Commercial applications that desire Multi-Purpose Lighting.
* Our 450W / 220-240Vac Single Live-wire Operational Trailing-edge LED Phase Dimmers released to market includes DZ2G450DIAL & DZ1G450CAPS (2015), DZ3G450DIAL (2017), DZ4G450MULT (2018). In 2017, our DZ3G450DIAL was listed as a SORAA® Compatible dimmer. In Q2 2021, an Enhanced version of DZ3G450DIAL has been available.
In this Application Video Library, we shared a number of interesting topics on LED dimming or how our products can be applied in different scenarios.
Two-Way Dimming Operation Review & Introduction to Multi-Way Dimmer Product ConceptIn this video, we first updated that our DZ3G450DIAL had recently completed two restaurant dimming projects in Shangri-La Hotel in Malaysia (See our Job Reference). We then reviewed the typical Two-Way Dimming operation based on a functional demo using 2x DZ3G450DIAL with different Dimmable LED Lamps.
For the Typical Two-Way Dimming Operation, the lamp can be switched On/Off at either location, but Brightness Control can only be done at One Location. To address Dimming the Same Lamp Continuously at Different Locations, we introduce a new product concept with our functional demo to show how the dimming operation can be done with the New Multi-Way Dimmers.

Since more than two Multi-Way Dimmers can easily be connected In Parallel, it means that creating More Access Locations for Dimming the Same Lamp is also Possible. Furthermore, the Wiring of the new Multi-Way Dimmers would be much Easier than Traditional Three-way Operation.
Possible Applications for Multi-Way Dimmers:
- In the master bedroom, the same reading lamp can be dimmed on either side of the bed, as well as at the door entrance.
- In the office main conference room, where the track lights and other lighting fixtures can be dimmed at either entrance.
