Need help finding a particular switch

Hello,

5631-2W > Decora<sup></sup> > Switches > Electrical Wiring Devices > Products from Leviton Electrical and Electronic Products

Is there a dimmer version of the switch above (or similar item)? I'm looking for a single pole, rocker style, illuminated (when off) 20 amp dimmer switch.

The dimmer will be used with a single 60 watt incandescent bulb and four 50 watt Halogen GU10 bulbs.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Welcome to the forums!

The Leviton site is being a bit slow right now, so I can't tell for sure, but it looks like their DVW600PH dimmer does what you're looking for.

You only need a 600 watt rated dimmer. It does not need to be rated for 20 amps.

You may want to rethink your choice of lamps, the 60 watt incandescent lamps are going away January 1st if I remember correctly.

Thank you for all the responses.

So even though the line feeding the switch in on a 20amp breaker the switch doesn't need to be 20amp rated?

The switch only needs to be sized for the load.
