Besides energy saving, controllability is the next highly expected feature of LED Lighting over Traditional Lighting. However, such a control aspect seems to be missing in daily applications. Since 2015, we've been developing & marketing Phase Dimmers* and related products to address LED dimming control.
Driven by our project field experience, we developed a new type of Tunable White control using Phase Dimming & 0-10V technologies, which gives our Tunable White Controller (DZ1G300TUNE) & Dynamic Lighting Controllers (DZ2G300TUNE_TOGG / _PUSH). It's our goal to lower the technical and costs barriers for different Circadian Lighting or Commercial applications that desire Multi-Purpose Lighting.
* Our 450W / 220-240Vac Single Live-wire Operational Trailing-edge LED Phase Dimmers released to market includes DZ2G450DIAL & DZ1G450CAPS (2015), DZ3G450DIAL (2017), DZ4G450MULT (2018). In 2017, our DZ3G450DIAL was listed as a SORAA® Compatible dimmer. In Q2 2021, an Enhanced version of DZ3G450DIAL has been available.
In this Application Video Library, we shared a number of interesting topics on LED dimming or how our products can be applied in different scenarios.
SORAA® GU10 LED Bulbs with Gen 3 450W/220Vac Phase Dimmer DZ3G450DIALUnlike the MR16 fixture, LED GU10 light bulbs have integrated the necessary driving circuitry to convert the live voltage to the DC output that powers the LEDs. This simplifies the installation or replacement to be not more complicated than screwing the bulbs into the lamp bases.
Although there are many products available in the market, good quality LED dimmable GU10 bulbs can still be hard to find sometimes. In many professional lighting applications, LED dimmable GU10 with high CRI performance is a common requirement in the design. In this video, the SORAA LED dimmable GU10 bulbs (Model # SM16GW-07-25D-927-03-S3) with a CCT 2700K & CRI 95 are used to demonstrate the lighting effect and also the dimming performance together with our DZ3G450DIAL.
The DZ3G450DIAL has a more powerful dimming core than the DZ2G450DIAL. We’ve also made some changes in terms of the device options in the new model. Since there is some lighting design that requires dimming a single light source, the demonstration begins by dimming a single GU10 and adding more light bulbs after. While we start dimming from the MAX brightness level, we’ve pre-set a MIN brightness level to showcase the Minimum-Brightness-Level setting in this video. While we’ll create more content on the D3G450DIAL soon, please be aware of our coming product announcement.
