    Plug in lamp dimmer

    Can you use a floor plan on the plug in switch to the outlet?

    What exactly do you mean by a floor plan? I don't understand what that device is.

    I'm guessing that he might have meant "floor lamp" - before auto-correct fixed it for him.

    If you did mean floor lamp instead of floor plan, the answer is: yes. You can plug a floor lamp into the plug-in dimmer (PD-3PCL). The dimmer is only able to control incandescent and halogen bulbs, or LEDs and CFLs on pages 59-61 of http://www.lutron.com/technicaldocum..._Bulb_list.pdf.

    Yes sorry. I meant a Floor Fan.

    Fan is best controlled with a switch. While you can turn plug-in dimmer into switch mode, and it probably would work in this configuration, it still won't be officially recommended to be used with a fan.

    I agree with veeeh. We never tested, nor UL rated the PD-3PCL for fan use. See Load Types: http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocum...mer%20Spec.pdf
