Can mains voltage LED products be dimmed with traditional incandescent dimmers?


Although LED products are marked as compatible with traditional dimmers, there are various degrees to which LED products are compatible with incandescent dimmers. This needs to be checked and tested on a product by product basis for the following most common undesirable behaviour:

Reduced dimming range

Flickering of the lamp

Inconsistent performance based on the number and different types of LEDs connected to a single incandescent dimmer
