    Blinking LEDs on 6D

    I did something I know I shouldn't, just because I wanted to see what would happen. I dropped in two (very nice) CRI 93 60W equiv (13.5W) TW Series CREE LED bulbs in a pair of pendants driven off of a 6D. I was actually surprised that they dimmed and performed exactly as I expected. They dimmed fine from a low level (but not quite as low as an incandescent) and were very smooth throughout. It was only when I looked at the LEDs on the 6D when it was in the off position did I notice anything suspect. The LEDs in the 6D sometimes would blink but would otherwise be okay. I pulled the FASS and will put a 6NA in in a few minutes.

    Given how it performed so well except for the status LEDs, I was wondering what people might take from it? I know 6CLs are basically the new 6Ds, but it would be great if the 6Ds could be used in the shift to LEDs.

    I've used the table top lamp dimmer for the 6.5 Cree A lamp and had excellent performance. I did not encounter the blinking LEDs as you did, which would indicate the dimmer is under it's recommended wattage.

    Thanks for the comment. Yes, the lamp dimmers do work great. :) I pulled the 6D and replaced with a NA, which of course works fine.
