Here's what I think's happening. It's guessing, from a basic knowledge of how dimmers work (significant time working on dimmers and lighting control systems for theatres and opera houses), and how microcontrollers work, so forgive me if it's not entirely accurate.

LEDs are low voltage devices which have drive modules that rectify the ac to dc and transform the voltage down to the 2-4 volt range to power the LED chips (at a fairly high current, for a semiconductor device).

A dimmable LED unit has a smart driver that's able to power its own logic from a power supply derived from a wide range of incoming wave forms (nearly off to fully on), sense the incoming wave form, and make a guess at what power to drive the LED's at, probably with a high frequency square wave using PWM. I don't think they actually work by using the chopped ac waveform to drive the LED in any direct sense.

The two-wire dimmers power their internal electronics by having a small resistance in...

I got my son a good brand of LED A lamps that says dimmable. When we use a regular dimmer they dim, but not like a regular lamp. When you dim them with a regular dimmer you might not get the same dim from time to time, and on ours the dimming is through but you have have the slide to go. We put these LED's in his fan lights at home and he keeps the full bright.

I know dealers of some of the retrofit LED trims and most of them say use the regular dimmer, but the main reason for that is so you don't have to buy new dimmers when replacing the lamps with LEd's.

Lutron makes a dimmer in the C.L family line that dims LED's and CFL's. These dimmers have a little trim screw dial that you can adjust to lengthen the dimming portion of the dimmer and you set it to be a full range dim on the dimmer.

Older electricians will probably remember the trim setting from older ceiling fans and adjusting them to the full range to tell you if it is on or off. the fan motor...

12 Volt Strobe Circuit: this circuit uses12V DC instead od mains AC. This is very good idea if you don't want to mess with direct mains voltage connected circuit or you want to run the Strobe from batteries.

120 Volt AC Lamp Chaser using Solid State Relays: This circuit is similar to the LED clock using12 neon indicator lamps instead of LEDs. It operates from2 high capacity ni-cad cells (2.5 volts) which keep it going...

incandescent only Review by Roger incandescent only Roger

No LEDs!!!! or, use LEDs at your own risk. Mine randomly blink in brightness, or hum.

Didn't last long Review by Blair Didn't last long Blair

Installed in my dining room for the light. Easily linked in with the rest of the system and the isy but it didn't last as long as I would have liked. I believe I had it working for about two years and then one day it just stopped. Went through customer support and did everything they recommended but life would just not come back into it. I'd like to get a new dimmer for the dining room but I don't think I'd buy this model again.
