Want to step up your LED dimming game? We share four easy ways to make an impact on your next LED dimming installation.
1. Go digital
The quickest and easiest way to upgrade your next project? Switch to a digital dimmer.
TRIAC dimmers (even those advertised as LED appropriate) just can’t dim LED effectively, resulting in flicker, buzz, and disturbance at low levels.
If you want to install flicker-free and silent control, you need a digital dimmer. All our LED products replace the copper coil found in TRIAC with next-generation digital dimming technology. No coil? No flicker, no buzz.
2. Don’t believe the box
LED lamps are great for saving energy, but the wattage isn’t always technically as low as the number on the label, thanks to inrush. In our testing room, we’ve seen lamps quadruple their wattage on start-up, taking an installation that should be 50W to 200W.
Our advice is to only buy good quality lamps from reputable LED brands, which have a much lower inrush than cheaper models. For more information on calculating the true load of your installs, read our guide.
3. Install multi-point control
Now you’ve perfected your LED dimming with digital, why not add something extra? With our multi-point dimming products, you can install full dimming capability from more than one control point on a single circuit. There’s no need for complicated or expensive bespoke systems: these products install straight off the shelf and are available at affordable prices.
With ZSMARTLED, you can install up to 3 control points on 5-150W/VA circuits, while ZBARLED enables dimming from up to 32 points on 0-300W/VA or 0-1000W/VA installations.
So next time a customer asks for dimming control at the top and bottom of the stairs, or from more than one entryway, you can say yes.
4. Dim LED tape
LED strip light is in-demand, but while it’s a great addition to so many projects, it’s always been a pain to dim. Not anymore. You can now dim LED tape with a simple, off-the-shelf solution: the ZBARLED. Available in 0-300W/VA or 0-1000W/VA, ZBARLED’s high wattage capabilities makes dimming those heavy LED tape loads easy.
