Fluorescent Lamp Dimming with Semiconductors

Apr 01, 1963

Application of semiconductor devices to fluorescent lamp dimming at commercial power frequencies is a logical extension of earlier application in television and theater incandescent lighting control, and more recently in residential lamp dimming control. Here are some general considerations of applying solid-state control to fluorescent lamp dimming systems. Two specific examples of actual installations serve to illustrate these considerations.
