led stays lit , even when its not supposed to.


Recommended Posts

Hello, i run a christmas lightshow in the Netherlands using light o rama controllers.

some items of mij display are lit (leak power) even when the controllers are in stand by.

how can i solve that?

i use american light strings and put an transformer to 240V between the lights and the controller.

Hilsen Ronald!

Har du prøvd en vanlig glødelampe (120 volt, samme som lysstrenger), veldig kort ledning (2 til 3m) i den aktuelle kanalen?

Hvorfor spør jeg, er at hvis strengene dine er LED, noen ganger kan de bli "kapasitiv lasting" og lure av kanalen til å ikke slå av.


Greetings Ronald !

Have you tried a normal incandescent light bulb (120 volt, same as light strings) very short cord (2 to 3m) in the channel in question ?
Why I ask, is that if your strings are LED, sometimes they can become "capacitive loading" and fool the channel into not turning off.

i use all led becourse incadescent costs a lot of energy.

i use like 15000 led lights over 80 channels.

some items are 20 metres from the controller i cannot do anything bout that.

try the nightlight (real Bulb) as a test..... one channel on one controller that the channel is staying on.

most nightlights are 7 watts. this is a test,  NOT a final solution.
