Are Integral Lighting fixtures dimmable?

admin

Answer

All Integral Lighting Xenon and LED fixtures are fully dimmable.

All Integral Lighting LED installations require a 12vAC power supply (not 12vDC).

**Some magnetic landscape transformers may be switched to ON, overriding the onboard controls allowing the installation of a dimmer ONLY control of the system. When dimming a transformer utilizing onboard controls, you are reducing the required current to the photocell and/or timer, which may result in damage to electronics of those add-ons.

What effect does dimming have on incandescent fixtures?

Answer

Typically, you can expect to increase the projected lamp life due to the reduction of voltage at the fixture. Additionally, you will notice a slight change in the color output as voltage is reduced … the incandescent fixture emits a slightly warmer light.

Will dimming an LED change the color output?

Answer

Our Integral Lighting 12vAC LEDs are fully dimmable. Keep in mind that reducing the voltage to an LED does not change the color (warmth) of the light output as in an incandescent installation. LEDs are designed to emit the same color at all points of voltage.

We offer various options if you would like to alter the color output. Filters are available for our .500 LED fixtures to alter the output between 2700K warm white (an incandescent equivalent), 3000K pure white and 4200K cool white (a fluorescent equivalent). Our .550 LED fixtures emit 2400K ultrawarm white, which is comparable to the warmth of candlelight.
