Hi there,

DIY enthusiast, I'm thinking of putting one of the new Lutron GrafikEye QS 4 channel units into my bathroom (well, the unit remote, with a keypad in the actual bathroom).
One thing I'm not sure off is whether I can wire the extraction fan directly to the GrafikEye or will this need some sort of interface?? The fan is about 50-75W.

As I was reading the docs for GrafikEye QS it would appear you can switch the channels to non-dim/switched, so wondered if that could work for non-lighting small loads. The install doc says something about not wiring electric motors due to overheating risk, but wondered if that applies to such a small load.

If I do need an interface or something else in between be grateful for pointer as to what that should be. (CE 230V by the way, UK)

Many thanks!

Yes, as long as you reprogram a load to non-dimming you can connect a fan, fluorescent, or electronic low voltage to a dimmer designed for incandescent light use.
