    Are you using a true rms meter?

    That sounds like a more modern dimmer, as one for Dimmable Fluorescent or LED. Get the number off it and go to the Lutron site, they should be able to tell you what you have. BTW the Fluorescent/LED dimmers have an adjustment limit switch under the wall plate. The old Incandescent dimmers worked by rapidly switching the power on and off to the lamp.
    I only have to make it work till I retire.
