Our aim is to make these complexities easier and that is the reason why our engineers have gathered recommendations in a list for you. This list is rather broad and detailed – from professional to professional.

In this list you will find a wide range of more than 400 tested LED lamps from different brands (Osram, Philips, Megaman, GE, Ilox, YPHIX, Ikea, Aldi (Müller Licht), Segula) and the matching dimmer solution from EHMANN.
