What is Full Range Dimming?

Unlike incandescent bulbs, which smoothly dim to off, LEDs dim a little differently. Not all LEDs can dim down to 10%, but for most applications, dimming down to 10% is enough. That’s why when you see “Full Range Dimming” on a spec sheet, it’s not uncommon for it to mean that the LEDs dim to 10%. LEDs capable of dimming to 1% are more expensive and traditionally have been reserved for auditoriums and other spaces where a very low light level is needed. However, as LED technology continues to improve, so does the dimming range as LEDs that dim down to 1% become more widely used.
