LEDs are the go-to light source for the replacement of existing lamps and luminaires providing a significant reduction in energy and an extended lifespan. LEDs can fit any form factor, and are extremely malleable compared to what we’ve been using in the past. However, dimming LEDs require careful coordination of lamps, drivers and controls to ensure proper performance. The session walks through dimming expectations for LEDs vs. incandescent such as dimming floor, color temperature, and linearity; the most common problems with LED dimming such as power line noise and how to address them.
