Can I use LED strips to replace the bulbs in the fixtures?
I just moved into a home with a huge basement. I think each room has 6, 2x4 Fluorescent fixtures. Would one of your flicker-free strips work as a means to replace the bulbs in the fixtures? If so, what would I need per fixture to make them dimmable?
Generally, we recommend installing our T8 LED tube lights as replacement lamps for existing ceiling fixtures. I do note that you are looking for dimmability, however, and that is unfortunately not supported with our T8 lamps at this time.
Our LED strip lights could be installed in ceiling fixtures as a retrofit solution, though we, unfortunately, do not have any instructional literature or detailed guidance on accomplishing this. From an electrical standpoint, this could certainly be achieved using a combination of our TRIAC dimmable power supply with our LED strip lights.
For example, please see below for a layout diagram showing how these can be connected:
