Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the Look- still needs work on the value Love the look and design of the switches. Don’t like how the dimmer has a dim (no pun intended) locator light vs. the regular switch- which isn’t visually appealing and super irritating considering the price. Looks really bad on a 2+ gang switch when they are right next to each other. Also- my tru universal won’t turn on my LED pendants unless it starts on the highest power vs. the lower end. So much for versatility. Once again as many reviewers expressed- at this price point- we demand perfection and flawless execution as there’s nothing out there more expensive. GET IT RIGHT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dim lighting I am so happy with the soft top dimmer switch that I had got last week the dimmer is very easy to use. There was no need for a professional installation as the instructions were very clear it actually worked on the first try, Something I’m not that familiar with After using it I plan on going buying more for my downstairs game room and are outside party room. It’s certainly can set the mood for whatever occasion with a push of a button

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dims beautifully, no flicker Bought “regular” LeGrande paddle dimmers and they dim great and look beautiful, but with some of our LED lights there was a flicker. Switched to the soft tap true universal and they dim to almost off and no flicker at any light level. Love how they dim to off for an elegant effect.

Questions & Answers

I just installed this sofTap dimmer switch and it turns on and off and dims as it should. It does, however, 'click' when I turn the switch on and off. What is causing this, please? Should I be concerned? Thank you.

Asked by: coomzee
The "click" is the opening and closing of the internal contacts, which is normal and you should not be concerned.

Installed this with WAC InvisiLED Pro2 24v (LED-TX24) tape light/ WAC 96 Watt Dimmable Power Supply (EN-24100-RBT2-T). Even after setting to low level trim, the lights flash when dimmed. Is there a minimum load for these dimmers? Other suggestions?

Asked by: Powers
The universal dimmer has a 6W minimum load required and for WAC lighting(ELV), the dimmer should be put into Reverse phase.(see User Adjustments section on attached instruction link) https://legrand.webdamdb.com/directdownload.php?ti=55646800&tok=GcNt2dYl9SpC4XAf0iSV9gRR

Im replacing a lutron 3way with a legrand ADTP703TUG4. The wall has 4 wires. (black, white, red and bare). The switch has sockets for hot, neutral, 3 way and pole? what goes where? the diagram doesnt help

Asked by: Skim
Hello, When installing this Legrand dimmer in a 3-way it has to be installed on the load side and the switch needs to be on the line side. We are not able to identify the wires in the wall just what wires need to be connected on the back of this dimmer. Ground wire goes to green, Neutral wire goes to white, Hot goes to black, 3-way and 1 pole need to be matched up between the dimmer and switch. Please contact us at 844-957-3783 if you have any other questions. Thank you,

I just completed a complete remodel of my Kitchen. I used all Adorne Legrand devices. I am controling my LED undercounter lighting with a soft tap universal dimmer. My Kicher undercounter lighting is buzzing. did not buzz with conv. dimmer

Asked by: Buddy
The Softap dimmer may need to be adjusted for the under cabinet lights you are controlling. If they are ELV(electronic low voltage), you need to put the dimmer into reverse phase. These steps are included with the dimmer instructions: SP/3Way true universal dimmer phase settings….FORWARD or REVERSE: You need to be in the minimum trim level adjustments to change the dimmer phase. To enter Min Level Trim: Hold Rocker button down for approximately 10s after minimum brightness reached. Bargraph LEDs will turn on to indicate cal mode activated. Releasing button within 5 seconds activates automated Min Level Trim feature as described in Initial Turn-on section below. Continuing to hold button for approximately 5 more seconds causes the +/- LEDs to flash, and initiates manual calibration. (basically hold for approx 15 secs until the +/- start flashing) Forward or Reverse Phase Selection Forward Phase is the default as shipped from factory. During manual Min Level Trim, holding On/Off button for approximately 10s toggles between Forward and Reverse Phase. The LED flash rate during calibration is approximately 1Hz for Reverse Phase, approximately 3Hz for Forward Phase. FORWARD phase – FAST blink REVERSE phase – SLOW blink

I have an ADTP703TUW4 in my bathroom that had been working great, but it has stopped retaining the LDL (last dim level), so whenever I turn the light on with the On/Off pushbutton it turns on on the lowest dimming setting. How can I fix this?

Asked by: soravia
I would try resetting the breaker to the dimmer to force it to recalibrate it's settings. If that does not correct it, contact Technical Support for further assistance. adorne products 1.800.223.4185 opt 3 Mon - Fri: 8am - 6pm EST (excluding holidays) Email Us - tech.support@legrand.us

Yes, the ADTP703TUM4 is rated to handle ELV loads, where the Paddle dimmer is not. This is from the Lumens spec sheet for your light: Dimmable When Used With a Electronic low voltage (ELV) Dimmer (Not Included)

Does this dimmer REALLY work with standard 110 VAC 6W LED bulbs? I have several of your LED dimmers that will only reduce the brightness of the LED bulbs to about 75% of full brightness - not very much.

Asked by: davchr
The universal dimmer is designed to dim to approximately 3% of your light load but also depends on the low end restrictions of the LED bulb. Some only dim to 10%.

Hi - I'm using this dimmer (ADTP703TUW4) with a regular 3-way softap switch (no dimmer). Can these be used in either the master or remote locations? I can get mine to work at first but then the softtap switch stops working after 4-5 pushes.

Asked by: John
When using True Universal Dimmer in a 3 way application, with an electronic switch (Soft Tap, Touch, or Wave), the HOT wire MUST be connected to the electronic switch, and the dimmer MUST be connected to the load. Reversing this wiring (HOT to Dimmer and LOAD to Switch ) will cause the switch to stop functioning. The switch requires 120 VAC to operate. When the voltage to the switch is lowered by using the dimmer, the electronics in the switch stop functioning. This only applies when using an electronic switch. A standard switch (Paddle, Push and Whisper, for example) is not effected.

I have a 560 watt LED load, will this dimmer work with this load? I know a lot of dimmers I have looked at have a lower led threshold than incandescent and didn't know if the 700watt rating was across the board or incandescent only.

Asked by: Darron
The maximum wattage rating depends on what type of lights(LED's) you are controlling. Max. load rating: • Incandescent: 700W • MLV: 500VA • ELV: 700W • EFL: 5.5A • CFL and LED: 450W(screw in bulbs)

Are the Adorne dimmers compatible with this LED Downlight?? file:///C:/Users/JHarrington/Downloads/RDL_4RND_9_CTS-97_Downlighting%20Dimmer%20Compatibility.pdf

We have not tested our Softap universal dimmer with RDL-Topaz recessed downlights but with the dimmer's available adjustments(forward/reverse phase and high/low end trim) it should control them without issue. This is from RDL/4RND/9/CTS-97 spec sheet: Dimmable with leading-edge incandescent or LED style dimmers.

I purchased serveral ADTP703TUM4 to operate my living room receseed lights, I currently have 15 Watt LED retrofit recessed lights, the new switch turns the lights on but they do not dim or even turn off? what are the specification of lights I need?

Asked by: Paul
The ADTP703TUM4 dimmer requires a separate Neutral wire so the dimmer can set itself to the load it's controlling and you need to verify that your LED's are "dimmable". The dimmer has a 6 watt minimum load requirement.

Can one dim in three way situation from both sides

Asked by: Marsha
Thank you for your question reagrding the adorne Softap dimmer(Model # ADTP703TUM4). With this dimmer in a 3way, you can only dim from one location and you would have to have a standard 3way switch on the other end of the circuit.

Will this switch work with Just a hot and Neutral??

Asked by: Bls15131
Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Tru Universal Dimmer. This device requires a hot, neutral, and load wire to the light. If you only have two wires in the box, you probably have a hot and a load wire to the light, with no neutral. The device needs the neutral to calibrate itself to the lighting load. Without a neutral, the device will not function properly. Hope this helps!
