I have a Fibaro Dimmer 2 with Bypass 2 that I can’t get to dim properly.
It’s installed in a euFix adapter according to the instructions, and it works in the sense that it turns on and off with both the app and the switch. It also dims up and down when holding the switch in.
My problem is that after calibrating with 4 different bulbs, including one recommended by the Danish distributor, none of them dims low enough.
I then tried to force the dimmer to use leading edge mode, and that improved the dimming dramatically - please see my tests HERE.
Why is this the case?
As I understand it it’s recommended to use trailing edge mode, but why? Is it harmful to the components to use leading edge?
BTW. both the Osram bulbs recommend using trailing edge dimmers according to the specifications, and I’m told the Philips does so as well.
