Dimming Performance

RMT500: Minimum brightness from off: 2% Minimum brightness from max: 2% RML500 Minimum brightness from off: 3% Minimum brightness from max: 3% RAK4-T: Minimum brightness from off: 4% Minimum brightness from max: 4%

Smoothness of Dimming

In general, this fitting performed reasonably well but with some significant areas of criticism. With all dimmers there was a noticeable shimmer while fading between levels, this problem was significantly worse with leading as opposed to trailing edge dimmers. With the RAK4-T it was possible to make the fitting flash at the very minimum output level. The profile was smooth and continuous.

Audible Noise

No audible noise when tested with any recommended dimmer.
