Power Surge error dimmer 2


Question

I have one Dimmer 2 in a 2 wire connection. The load is 6 x 12v halogen spots, 35 watt. The load should not be to much as far as I can see, but I get Power Surge error  all the time. The transformer is a standard transistor type.

 

I have tested the following without any luck:

 

1. Adjusted max and min parameter 1 and 2 to minimum 20 and max 70%

2. Forced several autosync #13

3. Then manually forced the dimmer by parameter #30 to Trailing Edge mode, and tested leading edge as well, no changes

4. Even tried to change L and N to the "wrong" position just to verify

5. Fully reset the device

 

Firmware is the latest, I think it's V3.5.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thomas

@felix_oslo most transformers can not be "dimmed"

are you sure you can use a dimmer with this transformer?

 

if so, try to connect the 3rd wire on the dimmer (neutral)

The dimmer should work fine without "3-wire" connection, and to do so, I need to do a whole lot of work in the walls. It's not any subject to do so since I need to take down walls.

Sure I can, but if that helps, it won't help my problem. I don't think the load is to heavy, all the cables has been tested to the spots, without any errors.
