As LED lighting grows in acceptance and popularity, so does the need for better and more ranging color quality. Traditionally, LED lighting gave off a stark white, cool glow that was harsh on the eyes and made it difficult to use as a primary lighting source. Warm-dim LED technology has toned down that cool coloring, dynamically shifting the current and future applications of LED lighting management systems. Dimmability with a warm glow effect creates more opportunities than ever for LED lighting management systems.
Gradual warm dimming allows users to dim LED lighting levels in the same tones as traditional bulbs, creating a cozier, less clinical affect. In a market already featuring both indoor and outdoor options, stage and entertainment applications, and opportunities for industrial lighting, warm-dimming has an important place in the LED space.
LEDs have traditionally dimmed at the same color temperature as when they were at full power. With the advent of warm dimming solutions, LEDs are now able to produce the same aesthetically pleasing effects as an incandescent light or halogen lamp. This occurs because of red or amber LEDs added to the fixture or lamp, creating an effect that is particularly suitable for application in homes, restaurants, hotels, spas, resorts and other locations where the intended atmosphere is cozy or relaxing. Warm dimming enhances the aesthetics of LED lighting, simultaneously enhancing the well being of individuals in LED-lit environments.
GRE Alpha’s Tunable White SLD-DimTW Dimming Module is the perfect solution for VC-type dim-to-warm and warm dimming applications. A constant voltage tunable white LED dimming module, this unique 0-10V/1-10V device provides a control signal and enables smooth, dynamic color temperature shifts of 2000K to 8000K. Depending on the application situation, this plug-and-play dimming module creates eye-catching, color temperature changing effects without color distortion. Offering unparalleled efficiency, the Tunable White SLD-DimTW dimming module is a pioneer in LED lighting, creating options for easy upgrade and color tuning that greatly improve the warmth dynamics of lighting.
Looking for further enhanced or added functions in LED lighting applications? GRE Alpha’s Two Channel SLD-DIM2 0-10V Dimming Module and 7-in-1 Dimming Module (model XDL-7DV1-48V5A) offer further options in warm dimming. The Two Channel dimming module offers 0/1-10V PWM dimming with no shift in LED color temperature, up to 1024 dimming levels of high resolution smooth dimming and 97 percent efficiency. Additionally, GRE Alpha’s 7-in-1 LED dimmer provides full range zero to 100 percent high resolution dimming performance for constant voltage LED dimming applications. Boasting flexibility and easy installation, the 7-in-1 has a multi-colored LED indicator, integrated strain release cover, settable dimming transfer characteristics (linear or logarithmic), and built-in thermal shutdown with auto restart and overload protection.
