Able to control up to 500 watts of mains dimmable lighting loads, the Rako RMT500 is a an in-line RF dimmer for GU10 LED lamps, low-voltage halogen, tungsten and other trailing edge dimmable loads. It’s actually the recommended dimmer for GU10 tungsten lamps, due to the built in short circuit protection.

Using trailing edge dimming technology, the RMT500 maximises the performance of most GU10 dimmable LED downlights and can be controlled from any Rako transmitter.

With a 16 scene memory capacity, the RMT500 can be fully integrated into Rako wired systems and programmed using either RASOFT PC software suite or an RCTM/RCP RF wall-plate to store the house, channel and room address.

If you add a weatherproof IP rated enclosure, it can also be used for exterior lighting control applications.

Please note, the RMT500 is not suitable for use with wire-wound or inductive loads.
