Just a light touch is enough to operate the Gira Touchdimmer, as it uses capacitive sensor technology. The desired brightness level can be set directly here. Only the appropriate LED need be touched for this. The last selected LED indicates the brightness level just selected by lighting up. There is also a fine audible signal which functions as feedback during operation.


When switched off, the Gira Touchdimmer can be switched on directly at any desired dimming level – simply by specifically touching the row of LED dots. And it's possible to change directly from the dimming position already set to any other level. The brightness level currently selected is indicated by the respective LED lighting up. Running a finger along the row of LED dots causes the light to slide to brighter or darker values.

The lower half of the operating surface contains an LED that lights up for orientation as long as the Gira Touchdimmer is switched off. When the lower half is touched, the Gira Touchdimmer switches on with a stored memory value. And lightly touching the lower operating surface is all that's necessary to switch off the Gira Touchdimmer again.

The memory value is also set with the lower operating surface. When it is touched for approximately 4 seconds, the Gira Touchdimmer stores the set brightness level in the memory.

The Gira Touchswitch is available to match the Gira Touchdimmer. It is also equipped with capacitive sensor technology and can be operated by a light touch of the finger. Both touch products offer a uniform appearance. This is particularly advantageous when the Gira Touchdimmer is installed together with other light switches.

The Gira Touchswitch features a blue LED on the operating surface. This lights up for orientation in the dark and goes out as soon as the switch is actuated.
