We recommend dimmable LED light sources to avoid leaking currents.
Alternatively a ‘PFCC’ (Power factor correction capacitor) is mounted parallel to one of the light sources which eliminates all leakage currents (accessory)
Leakage currents are when a small electrical is pulsating in the network, and that tiny amount of voltage can be enough to make you non-dimmable LED light sources to glow or flash, making them still active even though Columbus Time Touch Log Timer 2019 and Columbus Time Touch AIR (available end 2019) are turned off.
Dimmable LEDs are the most energy friendly and sustainable form of lighting. LED lighting is flexible and gives you the opportunity to control colour and strength, adapting the light to the surroundings.
If you switch from your current lighting to dimmable LEDs, you can expect energy savings at 30-80%.
Often, even more savings are obtainable if the lighting is controlled by a Columbus Time Touch Log Timer 2019 or Columbus Time Touch AIR (available end 2019), which are lux-controlled in regards to the natural light intake.
Dimmable LED lighting has a life span of over 50 000 hours, in comparison a fluorescent lamp has a life span of 12 000 hours. This increased life span will lessen the cost of operation and maintenance.
