We know what dimming is like for incandescent lamps, but when it comes to dimming LED’s or SSL fixtures we can’t be sure. When we expect dimming of LED’s to be “full range” and smooth will we be disappointed? Dimming LED’s & SSL fixtures can still be a challenge.

After a reviewing several SSL products and witnessing many demonstrations, it is the author’s view that we need something more than “dimmable” if we want to have results that approximate our experience with incandescent dimming.

This presentation will outline the basics and different methods of dimming and provide guidance for better dimming results for future projects. A sample specification will be provided.
