Lamps that generate light with the aid of light emitting diodes (LEDs) are not al-ways compatible with dimmers. Whether an LED lamp is fundamentally dimmable or non-dimmable must be specified on the packaging. But dimmable versions may also cause problems, mostly in combination with already installed brightness con-trollers for traditional lamps.
The “end” of high voltage reflector tungsten halogen lamps
