As outlined in the “Led and Dimmers” article, one of the biggest challenges associated with LEDs is the compatibility with legacy controls, more specifically TRAIC/leading edge dimmers.

In response to this known industry problem, Ecobelle has conducted a case study, testing the Ecobelle basic dimmable bulb line against a series of different dimmers from various manufactures.
