Dimmer 2 - G4 Led (Osram) flickers when is on



Hi everyone,


I have on wall lamp which has G4 led light bulbs (x5). With stock light bulbs everything is fine (they are not dimmable but with the same specification as Osram). The one and only difference being that stock bulbs light yellow while Osram lights cool-white.


Osram specification: 1.8W / 200 lm / 4000 K / 12V - not dimmable. (P.S stock bulbs also are not dimmable)


I faced flickering with stock bulbs when the light was off. The problem was solved by adding bypass 2. I configured stock bulbs by decreasing maximum brightness level by 40% and time of dimming step for 0 seconds.


When I'm trying to change stock bulbs on Osram while is ON it starts flickering, in meanwhile from the admin panel I can see a warning issue: Voltage drop.


Flickering starts only when I put there more than 2 Osram bulbs.


I am pretty sure that there are issues with configuration. Maybe somebody can help with it?

Hi @badfeelings, have a look at this guide. I think your problem is that you are using non-dimmable bulbs in a dimming device? If you just want to turn on/off, the use a fibaro switch instead of fibaro dimmer.
