Lutron Adds Maestro Digital Fade Dimmer to its Successful C•L Collection for Dimmable CFLs and Dimmable LEDs

Lutron Expands Successful C•L line with Industry-First Digital C•L Dimmer

Coopersburg PA (May 9 2012) — Light control manufacturer Lutron Electronics is pleased to announce the addition of the Maestro digital fade dimmer to its popular C•L dimmer collection. C•L dimmers work not only with today’s most popular light bulbs such as incandescents and halogens but also with dimmable compact fluorescents (CFLs) and dimmable LEDs which are expected to become even more widely adopted over the next 10 years.

By installing a Lutron Maestro C•L dimmer homeowners will be able to reliably control the widest range of dimmable light sources available today.

C•L dimmers have been engineered to solve problems associated with dimming CFLs and LEDs. They are UL listed to work with a broad range of dimmable CFL and LED light bulbs as well as with halogens and incandescents. C•L dimmers specifically address issues commonly found when dimming these bulbs with standard incandescent dimmers including:
  • Lights “dropping out ” or turning off before reaching the lowest light level
  • Lights not turning on at low light levels also referred to as “pop-on”
  • Excessive flickering

Featuring an easy-to-operate tap switch and side rocker dimmer Maestro C•L offers:
  • Multi-location dimming or dimming capability from up to nine different locations
  • Gradual fade-to-on and off functionality; delayed off provides light as you exit a room
  • Ability to work with standard 3-way switch
  • No special wiring required

The Lutron C•L dimmer collection already includes Diva Skylark Contour Ariadni/Toggler and Lumea wall dimmer styles plus the Credenza plug-in lamp dimmer. C•L dimmers use Lutron HED Technology which features advanced dimming circuitry designed to alleviate the problems associated with dimming CFLs and LEDs. And with HED Technology C•L dimmers can also dim a mixed load of light sources (i.e. LED and halogen bulbs) on the same circuit.

The Maestro C•L dimmer will debut at Lightfair International (May 9-11 2012 in Las Vegas Nev.) and will be available at select home improvement centers lighting showrooms electrical distributors and at lutronstore.com this summer. Its suggested list price is $41.50.
