About our Lutron Maestro Dimmers for Line Voltage Lighting Systems
Description

Lutron Maestro dimmers are designer light controls with personalized programming options. Preset your desired dimming level, activate a delayed fade-to-off feature that gives you 10-60 seconds to leave the room, or simply adjust the lights manually using an easy-to-operate rocker switch. A "soft glow" LED feature will also enable you to find the dimmer in a dark room. This model controls line voltage (120 volts) lighting systems.

  • 2 Models:
    MA-600: 600 watts, single pole & multi-location
    MA-1000: 1000 watts, single pole & multi-location
  • Dimming Range: full range dimming that can save energy and extend lamp life
  • Poles: dimmer is designed as either a single pole (one control for one lighting system) or a multi-location dimmer switch (two controls for one lighting system).
  • Preset: Maestro® models include an on/off switch to save the previous selected lighting level
  • Maximum Wattage: depending on which model is selected the maximum wattage that can be controlled is 600 watts or 1000 watts
  • Construction: durable nylon construction
  • RFI Suppression: advanced radio frequency protection circuitry
  • Installation: designed to replace standard toggle switches. These dimmers must be mounted in a wall box. Please see the Installation Instructions for details. [Caution: Always check local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC) before installing any lighting products. It is also wise to consult with a licensed electrician in your geographical area about any electrical details that you might have questions about and to make certain that you are satisfying all of the appropriate electrical codes.]

Questions & Answers
By Mike from San Francisco, CA on October 5, 2012
Can this be used for track lights which have an integral magnetic transformer or an electric transformer?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 8, 2012

Answer:
Mike,

No, I would not recommend this dimmer when connected to a low voltage lighting system.

Instead, determine which type of transformer your system uses (electronic or magnetic) and use a dimmer specifically designed for that system.

We offer dimmers designed for electronic low voltage systems: http://www.pegasuslighting.com/electronic-low-voltage-dimmers.html

And also dimmers for magnetic low voltage systems: http://www.pegasuslighting.com/magnetic-low-voltage-dimmers.html
By Matthew from Cheshire, CT on October 11, 2012

Answer:
You don't give enough information. Are your track lights "line voltage" (120VAC)? Are the lamps halogen/incandescent, or very low wattage such as LED?

If you are running low-voltage track lights with an integral magnetic transformer, there is a special version of the Maestro for that. The cost is quite a bit higher ($75 instead of $30) but it is designed for that load. If the transformer is electronic (which I presume is what you meant by "electric"), there is a third version of Maestro that is just for that, and it is about $100 vs. $30.

The rule is to decide first on your preferred lighting system, then select a dimmer to match. You can go to Lutron's Web site to see all the Maestro devices.

(My only connection with this product is that I have been implementing it throughout my home over the past nine years. I've only made one mistake in that time—yes, it was using a standard Maestro with low-voltage magnetic transformers—and sure enough, the transformer recently failed.)

Good luck with your project!
