Dimming Performance

MInimum brightness from off: 3% Minimum brightness from max: 2%

Smoothness of Dimming

A slight flicker is observed when dimmed close to the minimum output, anything below around 5% in noticeable. Aside from this the lamp dimmed very smoothly. No significant steps could be seen and the dimming profile was proportional with a good approximation of linearity. The lamps performed consistently with one another remaining synchronised at all times.

Audible Noise

Very slight buzz when used with leading edge. Inaudible when over a meter away..

Notes

When used with this inductive driver this lamp and driver should only be dimmed with leading edge products. If used with trailing edge dimmers it may seem to work fine initially but will damage the dimmer over time. No Rako trailing edge dimmers should be used to power inductive loads.
