What do the Fitting Input numbers mean?

Some LED fittings have a choice of how ‘hard’ you run them, e.g. they can be run at 350mA, 500mA or 700mA. Essentially, the higher the mA the harder they are run, the more power they use and the more light they give out. They also generate more heat which is why there are limits – for example if you ran a fitting at 700mA when its thermal management was only designed to take 350mA you would significantly reduce the life of the fitting.
