Thanks for you time, I need to order some samples for testing (work-related). I need to order some particular brands of dimmable ballasts, and I obviously need to order some T8 fluorescent tubes and other 4-pin CFL's, to test some dimming circuitry. I understand a stand-alone CFL bulb can be classified as dimmable or non-dimmable. The internal difference in these two types is the dimmable CFL contains a ballast circuit inside that allows for dimming. Whereas non-dimmable CFL's have no such ballast. But if I wire a dedicated dimmable ballast unit with non-dimmable CFL bulbs (4-pin models), could the dimming still work? I'm including a dimmable ballast unit to work with CFL bulbs, whether the CFL bulbs have their own dimming ballast or not. Could the dimming work because I am adding the dimming ballast myself? Thanks in advance for your answers!
