I might get one to try actually - my fan is already modded to run at half speed on a separate power supply and the light tends to run pretty hot, so I wonder if dimming the light will produce less heat.
Maybe not, just saw the price on the dimmer - £105 on Amazon.
Well the good news is that the dimmer works quite well. The bad news is that it causes an almighty buzzing noise from the pendant on anything except full brightness (it's still faintly audible at 100%), I think either from the bulbs themselves or the capacitors. So pretty useless all in all.
I guess other dimmers with different frequencies might give better (or worse!) results, but I don't think I'll be bothering.
Yup, it was way too loud for me. I ended up rewiring the fan to run at half speed on a separate 12v power supply (old mobile phone charger) instead of at 24v. Much quieter, but the unit runs a lot hotter, so it'll be reducing the life of the LEDs, although I have no idea how much by. I got it for a reasonable price second hand, hence not too worried about messing around with it, but if I'd bought it new I'd have returned it due to the noise.
They really should have made the unit larger in order to fit a bigger (quieter) fan, as in the A350s. Major flaw IMO. Shame because the aesthetics, colour and spread of light are all excellent.
Im looking into buying this Led fixture now.. I was wondering where you guys have ordered it from?
I cant fint the 6500k kessil in UK ? Neither in Germany, so will prolly have to buy from the US, but they use 110v In denmark we use 230v?
