    Have a requirement for a hand full of E27 dimmable bulbs to go in some pendants that are in the current project for my eldest daughter and SIL.

    Using 5508D1A LE output dimmers.....anyone had a good experience with any particular brand?

    Regards,

    Hi Fleetz

    There was a post here asking about that.
    http://www.cbusforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11810

    He mentions these bulbs.

    I haven't tried them myself.
    Perhaps you would want to make sure if they can be returned if unsatisfactory.

    Osram has a product

    I have not tried them either.

    Dimming compatibility chart there too.
    No mention of CBus but it does show some info.
    The first thing that came to mind with energy saving lamps was great I can load many more lamps per channel.
    Osram say you should not load a channel with more than the halogen equivalent of wattage.
    Philips has published similar recommendations for their dimmable CFL's.

    As far as dimmable ES LED's go I really like Philips Hue.
    But unfortunately you have to get your smart phone out to dim them.

    Cheers Daryl for that I will follow them all up and will post up what I find over time.

    I actually have the Philips Hue myself they work very well and really neat. What I also like about them is they are finding their way in integrated control applications so the likes of C-Bus, AV, home automation and Philips Hue are all controllable from the one control application. The fact that they are independent becomes not of concern.

    We live in interesting times.

    Regards,
