IFM's Loan Program

The IFM Sample Dimmer Board is an excellent tool to experience IFM's patented POM POM™ Wall Dimmer and ESSENTIAL™ Wall Dimmer, and share the exciting possibilities of electronic textiles with your clients. The IFM Sample Dimmer Board lending program is particularly useful for architects, designers and educators to demonstrate how fun and easy to use IFM's wall dimmers are.

Each Sample Dimmer Board comes to you ready to plug in and use. It includes a POM POM™ Wall Dimmer or ESSENTIAL™ Wall Dimmer fully installed on the Sample Dimmer Board with a light bulb. Simply plug in the Sample Dimmer Board and give it a gentle touch to turn the light on and off, and set varying light levels.
