Dimming Performance

Dims down to less than 1% of maximum brightness. A little 50Hz shimmer visible.

Smoothness of Dimming

There is some visible stepping when dimming between low brightness levels. Not at all unusual.

Audible Noise

RDL500 was buzzing fairly loudly with 16 lamps connected. (probably due to the high peak currents drawn by the lamps)

Notes

This lamp/ballast combination worked well with both Trailing and Leading edge dimmers. Recommended dimmers are RMT500 and RAK4T
