A: An IP-65 rating means that the device has Ingress Protection ratings of 6 for solids and contact (6 is the highest rating) and rating of 5 for liquids. The 6 rating means total protection from dust ingress and accidental contact (including hands and fingers). The 5 rating means that it is protected from from low pressure water jets from any direction.
A: An IP65 rated enclosure gives protection against low pressure water jets from any direction, as well as condensation and water spray. It's suitable for most outdoor enclosures that won't encounter extreme weather such as flooding. You can look up the details on the nemaenclosures website.
A: It is an enclosure standard as follows. IP65 Enclosure - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against water projected from a nozzle.
A: IP stands for International Protection Code. The rating 65 is for protection against dust and water.
A: IP-65 is a weather-resistance rating. The number 6 indicates that it is impervious to dust and dirt—the scale only goes up to 6. The number 5 indicates that it will continue to work even after getting hit with a blast of water from a hose for 10 minutes from any angle.
A: No, this is an on/off plug. It cannot dim loads.
A: No. There is no dimming capability as mentioned by several of us that reviewed the product.
A: No this is not a dimmer
A: Not a dimmer
A: Does not allowing dimming.
A: Yes, connect your low voltage transformer to it. it can control transformers up to 1200 VA (8 A)
A: It would only work with a low voltage load if there is a transformer or "driver" between this device and the load such as LED lights. LED bulbs that have traditional bases like 115 Volt devices have drivers built into them. But there is no voltage step down or other conditioning in this device. It is for on/off control of 115 volts AC.
A: The PD-15OUT is able to switch all lighting loads on and off up to 15 amps.
A: Only indirectly. It switches 120v AC, which in turn could be used to power a low-voltage lighting transformer. That is what we use it for.
A: Use this to control your low voltage transformer. Just plug your transformer into it and you're ready to go
A: • Up to 15 A lighting loads • Up to 1/2 HP motor and pump loads • Up to 1200 VA (8 A) lighting transformer / magnetic ballast loads
A: It is rated up to 15A at 120v. So just make sure your loads don't have starting surge currents greater than that.
A: You can control any device that operates on 115 volts AC up to 15 amps but typically you would limit the load to 80% or 12 amps. It is for on/off control only, however, another device downstream can provide voltage step down or conditioning such as a transformer or driver. Lights and motors can be controlled with this device. Think of out as an outlet and a switch in one such as an outlet in your family room controlled by a wall switch.
A: The Caseta Outdoor Smart Plug can control any 15A rated load (up to 1800 Watts) or 1/2 HP motor loads.
A: Up to 15 amps or a 1/2 HP motor
