I’m using a VMBDMI with 4 incandescent E27 bulbs of 60W, like these:
I want to replace them with 4 LED bulbs. Something like this:
These bulbs are not cheap and I can’t return them to the shop once I buy them, so does anybody has experience with similar bulbs that do dim well with a VMBDMI?
I know that a lot of these lights do not dim very well with this dimmer, so I hope to hear experiences from actual users…
Also, what’s the experience with low light: does it still dim without flickering and giving a warm glow?
Have you done a search on this forum for mains replacement LED?
I remember someone else asking the same question.
My own experience hasn’t been great, I’ve found only 1 dimmerable LED similar to the one you’ve pictured, which happened to be from that will known Swedish furniture vendor
While it did Dim acceptably with the VMBDMI, it does snap to about 25% from nothing, and if you’re after a faint glimmer, then you’d be better off with incandescent lamps
Unless you swap to pure low voltage dimming and low voltage fixtures.
I’ve retagged a load of example videos on YouTube with “Velbus DMI Dimmer Vs. test lamps”:
If you do find something that works well, please let us all know
Anyone else know of any lamps that work well?
As a follow on from this thread, I’ve created some truly dull videos which show the VMBDMI-R or VMBDMI connected to various Mains Replacement GU10 LED lamps that I can buy in the UK.

Thankfully they are only about 2 minutes each, but you will get a good idea of which lamps I’ve found that work (or don’t work) with the DMI / DMI-R modules.
