I’m a happy Velbus Customer for +3y and I call myself one of the happy early adopters and took the “good” risk to implement this solution in our new home.
So far everything is/was working perfect and every week I’m enjoying the flexible reprogramming options (christmas lights) etc.
I just have one question that I can’t explain decently with my technical background. Till now I was using old (40W-60W) bulps for lights and also played around succesfully with the first 4W power leds …
These are now replaced with the “new” generation 6W SMD LED’s …
We still can turn on the lights ;-), but when it’s turned off, we notice a visible “power leak” resulting in very very small visible light (not only during the first 5 minutes, but for hours). It’s enjoyable as “night light” and not realy disturbing, but where is this current leak coming from?!
***Are the relay contacts in VMB4RY not 100% isolated? Is this normal that we have some leak currents? ***
Any advise how to solve this? Do we need an external extra opto-coupler? Do we need to cut both cables?
I initially thought in direction of leak current from the “non-cut” 0-line (blue) and ground (yellow/green), we only cut 1 fase (red)
but since the aluminium housing of the spots is not grounded, this isn’t possible.
- extra power consumption, but as it’s less than a red status led I don’t expect much extra costs here
- lamp life time reduction …
