Snubbers

Recommended Posts

My original Gen.1 LOR controller has had problems at least twice with a stuck triac. So, this year I want to avoid those problems with snubbers; while I understand the concept, I am wondering what is the easiest way to use them. The old controller runs a 16 ch. mega tree, all LEDs. many thanks in advance for your input.

I'm 100% LED and I put snubbers on the end of run of lights I put up. Generally, I only notice the need for snubbers when I get up into the 600 or so light count on a channel but I use them on every one just because.

I made the snubbers that are detailed in many places on the forums here and i simply plug them into the female plug at the end of the line. No fading problems at all!

I use snubbers as well, but it won't do anything for your sticking triac unless your only problem is fading.

I put them on the under side of the control board for neatness.
