Right - could do with some help if you're a sparky with LED lighting experience and expertise
I have 12 , yes 12 X 50 W halogens (MR6) in my kitchen. That's 600W of heat plus a bit of light
It's a dimmable circuit too - looks like a standard (triac?) dimmer switch (I can see a coil in there plus a bit of electronics)
They are driven at 12V DC in pairs from Aurora 35-105W drivers.
I have bitten the bullet and got some dimmable Philips 7W LEDs (meant to be excellent at working with a variety of drivers) - tried one and it worked just fine (and dimmed ok) so ordered 12.
Since fitting (retaining the existing drivers) them I have had a variety of issues - some flashing bulbs (which I'm guessing is a results of not enough load on the driver), one driver looks like its gone pop completely. Currently have a mixture of new LEDs and the old halogens.
Recently got some constant current LED drivers which didn't work on one LED bulb so stopped it quickly- but I'm getting out of my depth to what will make these work!
1. Do I need to change the dimmer switch? (I've seen there are clever LED friendly ones that don't chop up the current which to my understanding is how dimmers work and probably not what LEDs and LED drivers like..)
2. do I just need a specific dimmable LED driver? I've seen these about but tricky to find..
3. any other hints or tips?
