TRIAC is probably the best known form of LED dimming, whereby the lamp can be easily operated with an LED wall dimmer.

What is the difference between 2700K and 3000K?
2700K gives a warm, yellow light. 3000K is more neutral and gives warm neutral light. Our products are standard 3000K.
4.4 What does DALI dimmable mean?
With DALI you have complete control over the light. DALI makes it possible to set each lamp individually or to assign it to a group. With DALI you can create different light-scenes in each room, which can be memorized. An optional motion sensor and dimmer help to significantly reduce energy consumption. This makes DALI particularly suitable for application areas such as offices, shops, restaurants or hotels. Two additional control wires are required to connect DALI. We recommend that DALI be connected by an experienced electrician.
4.5 What does 1-10V dimmable mean?
With 1-10V dimmable, the LED driver is controlled by an external signal between 1 and 10V. Perfectly dimmable in its own range of 10% to 100%. Applicable with many home automation systems. It is necessary to place a 1-10V actuator between the home automation system and the fixture. Two extra control wires are needed to connect 1-10V.
4.6 What is an IP value?
IP value stands for International Protection rating. This value indicates whether the lamp is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. The first number indicates the degree of protection against solids and the second number the protection against moisture and water. For outdoor use you need at least an IP23 rating. An IP68 rating withstands even the most extreme weather conditions.
4.7 What does CRI mean?
CRI stands for Colour Rendering Index. This is a value from 1 to 100 which indicates how accurately a light source can reproduce the colours of objects. Daylight reproduces colours most accurately and therefore has a CRI of 100.
With a CRI of 100 colours are reproduced most faithfully. The lower the CRI, the less accurately colours are displayed.
A CRI of 80 is good for your lighting. A higher CRI value may be at the expense of light output. We therefore recommend a CRI of 80.
4.8 What is an optic type?
The optic type shows whether the lighting produces diffuse light or a particular angle of radiation. Diffuse light is an uniform light that is evenly distributed over the surface. As a result, the same amount of light is given to the room and there are no hard shadows or reflections.
4.9 How will I know if the items are in stock?
How will I know if the items are in stock?
It is best to contact us so we can check that the items you want are actually in stock. If not, we will order the items from our supplier.
4.10 Which parts do I need to complete my CLIXX (SLIM) system?
To have a working CLIXX system, you will need a number of components.
- Choose a CLIXX profile of your choice (surface mounted, pendant or recessed).
- Determine the length you need, we sell the lengths per one or two metres. The profiles are easy to link to the desired lengths.
- Choose how you want to dim the system (TRIAC dimmable (standard), DALI dimmable or 1-10V dimmable).
- Choose the colour of your CLIXX profile (white or black).
In addition to the profiles, you will also need a driver and possibly a driver box to make the system work.
- Choose a driver that matches the dimming method you have chosen for the profile. So, choose a TRIAC driver if you have chosen TRIAC dimmable for the profile. Choose a DALI driver if you have chosen DALI dimmable for the profile. Choose a 1-10V driver if you have chosen 1-10V dimmable for the profile.
- Can you hide the driver in another place, such as a lowered ceiling? Then you do NOT need a driver box. Could you NOT conceal the driver in another place? Then choose a driver box that can be mounted on the track. This is where the driver comes in.
Now all you have to do is select the desired light modules and add them to your CLIXX profile.
