    Thanks for sharing... after a brief skim through it seems like a pretty good summary of the issues, but as for the test data....

    - the dimmers they have tested with are almost all positively ancient (some of those Clipsal ones haven't been sold for 10 years and aren't even EMC compliant!)
    - the LEDs are all lamp replacement types which are usually pretty poor when it comes to

    It's obviously targeted at people just wanting to replace lamps on existing dimmers and/or LV transformers...

    Yes, that is what the report basically says, it was commissioned to determine if the tech and public were up to a complete phase out of incandescent with lamp replacements. While here in the C-Bus world many people are happy to look at replacing all their fittings in a building, many people just want something they can buy and put into their existing fittings.

    I did notice that as well with the dimmers and did think it was a little strange, but they do test a decent selection of brands and tech, and that is more the point I think.
