Philips Step Dim LED Downlight 10W
Dimmable LED Downlights - Without a Dimmer
The Philips Step Dim LED downlight is a complete fitting for 90mm ceiling cutouts. It incorporates clever 'StepDim' technology that allows you to select three brightness levels.
- No dimmer switch needed - save money on parts, and installation costs.
- Integrated design - suits 90mm ceiling cutouts.
- IP44 & IC4 rated - suitable for installation in all locations, including kitchens & bathrooms. They can be abutted and covered with insulation.
- Premium Philips quality - 30,000 hour rating & 3 year warranty.
Choose from Warm White (3000K) or Cool / Neutral White (4000K).
Control brightness levels with your existing light switch
Operating the Philips StepDim downlight is simple.
- Switch it on at the wall and it will light up at full brightness
- To dim down to 40% brightness, flick the wall switch off/on again.
- Flick the switch off/on a third time to dim down to the minimum brightness of 10%.
Leave the light off for more than 8 seconds, and it will come on at full brightness the next time it's used.
Philips Step Dim operation - three brightness levels.
Save energy by selecting the brightness you need
Upgrading from halogen downlights to LED technology significantly reduces power use. A typical MR16 halogen downlight uses 50 watts, compared to 10 watts or less with this LED light. That's an 80% decrease in energy use from a light that's brighter than the halogen bulbs it replaces.
You can save more energy when full brightness isn't required. We tested the downlights at all 3 levels and measured the power consumption. Here are the results:
- High 100% = 8.5 watts
- Medium 40% = 3.8 watts
- Low 10% = 1.6 watts
This shows that the Step Dim downlights are even more efficient than specified. They use only 8.5W at full brightness. Power can be reduced a further 55% on medium brightness or over 80% on low brightness mode.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can these be installed without an electrician?
Yes, provided you already have power points in your ceiling to plug into. No additional dimming hardware is needed, just a standard wall switch. If you don't already have power points in your ceiling, an electrician will need to install them. In summary, the lights can be self-installed once the power points are in place.
What if I already have dimmers installed in the wall switch?
The Philips Step Dim system gives you additional control without the need for separate dimmer units. If you already have dimmers installed, see our our Osram dimmable downlight.
I need more than 3 levels of brightness, what are my options?
The Philips Step Dim Downlight gives 3 levels of brightness: 100%, 40% and 10%. If you need more adjustability, an LED dimmer combined with a dimmable downlight may be more appropriate. See our Diginet MEDM dimmer and Osram Tri-Colour 90mm downlight.
