Dimming LED fixtures can be a nightmare!

He will take a deeper dive into how dimmers actually work, all while examining the dimming technologies that are available on the market today. A predominant objective of this presentation will be placed on understanding the challenges associated with phase cut dimming vs other systems, all in the hope that we can avoid nightmare lighting application scenarios in the future.
