Dimming Performance

Minimum brightness from OFF: 2% Minimum Brightness dimming down to OFF: 1%

Smoothness of Dimming

This lamp performed very well with the trailing edge dimmers with no steps in the dimming profile, no stobing and only minor flickering in the bottom 10% of the output range. While the RDL500 was good in most areas the flickering when dimmed was significantly worse, present in the bottom 30%. With all three dimmers the lamps tuned on, off and faded consistently with one another.

Audible Noise

Minor buzz from RDL500 when dimmed.

Notes

While this lamp could be used with any of the dimmers it was tested with, for best results use trailing edge dimmers.
