The INFRESCO-VR-1.5kW controller offers variable control of mains-driven loads, specifically Quartz Halogen Infrared heat lamps, rated up to a total of 1.5kW.
This microcontroller-based unit incorporates a ‘soft-start’ gradual switch on function to eliminate the lamp’s initial high inrush current – potentially increasing the lamp life by as much as 30%.
Output levels are selected by up & down push-buttons with a high-intensity LED indicating when the controller is regulating the power to the lamp load.
A relay override function is built in the circuit design – thus, at maximum power (100%), the relay ‘switches in’ and bypasses the power (triac) and suppression (choke) devices. This helps to keep the units heatsink temperature to a lower operating temperature, since they are not in use in this state and generate no heat. Normal control is resumed below approximately 96% of the power setting.
