Thread: de-rating a Caseta Dimmer

    de-rating a Caseta Dimmer

    I understand the de-rating when the dimmer is beside another dimmer or switch, but does it also apply if the dimmer is beside a Pico? I have 550 watts on the proposed dimmer.

    De-rating typically applies to dimmers next to each other. Each dimmer is a heat source, and as heat increases the ability to dim diminishes. Since the Pico has no real space taken up in the back box, and does not generate heat- you should be fine.
