The problem looks to be solved.  I got another electrician round and he fitted the following - Aurora LED Dimming Module AU-DSP400X.  It seems to work perfectly now.

Thanks for help

Different fittings?  Different LEDs?  Different dimmers?  Getting the combo right is a challenge.

Hi
We have just had 3 dimmable spot lights fitted on the same circuit and their response time is perfect.  I don't understand how the downlights take 3 -4 seconds to switch on however the 3 dimmable spot lights switch on immediately?
Thanks

You are best using a dimmer recommended by the LED manufacturer.  A short delay is normal.

What sort of light is it dimming?  

Could be that the delay is a soothing capacitor or capacitive dropper in an led him  or fitting that has to charge up / discharge and that's giving you the delay?

Dimmer Delay
Mar 25th, 2017, 9:40am
 
Hi

We have just had some dimmer switches installed however when we turn them on there is a long delay before the lights switch on.  There is also a large delay when you try to dim the lights.

Does anyone know what the problem is and how we could resolve this?

Thanks
