I wanted to use my Dimmer 2 to control my new LED strips. I have two 220V -> 12V 10A transformers, one to each strip. They'll be running at max 7.5A with the length of the strips I'm running.
For my first run I connected one of the drivers and had to use a bypass to get it to turn off completely. With the bypass it works excellent and after forcing a calibration dimming is perfect. Or - as close as can be expected. I tried the same setup on the other driver with the other strip and that works perfect as well. Now, if I connect both of them to the same FGD-212 (still with the bypass) the lights will come on, but it will then turn off again after dimming up to 100%. The load should be well within the dimmers capabilities with 0.78A on the 230V side or 180W if you will. The FGD-212 reports 78.4W, when one is connected.
Anyone know what this might be? Is there a max to what the bypass can handle?
