NOVA Effect

The NOVA Effect

One thing that will irritate you is that IF you turn OFF one of these lamp modules, and then issue a DIM or BRI command, it will first turn full ON, and then attempt to dim. This is commonly nick-named the "Nova Effect", because it almost always happens late night when you least expect it.

There is a good electrical explanation why the modules were designed to do this, but it's best thought of when you consider the fact that most household fans have switches that turn on high before switching to a lower speed.
