Ltech Lighting Lesson - Smoothness
- 17 Mar, 2022
There are obvious differences between dimming and non-dimming lighting environments at the moment when lights are switched on. Great dimming is lit up from the lowest brightness just as sunrise slowly lights up the environment. Smooth and fine in dimming process.
This gradually brightening soft-on way makes our eyes gradually adapt from darkness to brightness, and we will not feel dazzling like a sudden explosion of full brightness.
Another advantage is that it can prevent inrush current problems when instantaneous high current flows.
The grayscale level of dimmable drivers also affects dimming effects.( Grayscale refers to light degree from brightness to darkness, such as 256 grayscale , which is to divide the brightness of lighting into 256 levels). The higher the gray-scale is, smoothness of dimming in the process is correspondingly higher and more rich in details. Also, lighting is significantly finer, brightness and tunable white changes are further fluent, and RGB is more colorful as well.
What the market often suppose step-less dimming is that it is a continuously changing dimming mode, which distinguishes from segmented dimming. The advantages of step-less dimming are that dimming can reach to any ideal brightness and color temperature. Its grayscale value can reach even 16382 grayscale or higher.
