What is the difference between analogue and digital dimming?


Analogue dimming is usually referred to as 1 - 10v dimming. In this case, a dc voltage is sent to the driver which dims the LEDs in response to the voltage. With digital dimming, the driver receives a digital signal which tells it how to respond. The advantage of digital dimming is that fixtures are addressable. You can also have many more different levels of light output.
