Wall Plug leaks voltage to my outdoor 10Watt Led Floodlight

 Share

Question

I have installed lots of wall plugs with serveral light.

Outdoor i have a 10watt Led Floodlight to scare people off.

Now i noticed that the light keeps burning on a very low light.

This is the first wall plug that has these problems....

 

Can i use for example the dimmer bypass between the led light en wall plug?

 

Or is there a other way to get rid of this problem.

My led floodlight must go off .

    Not i did not.

    When i measure the voltage without a lamp it’s 0.
    When light is connected i measure a minimal voltage.

    I'm not sure if the wallplug has 1 or 2 relay contacts. maybe one off the forum members know.

    If I assume that there is only one relay contact, and this one contact disconnect the neutral wire, there is a possibilty that there flow a very low current to ground. Wich result in a voltage on you're meter.

    Rotate the wallplug 180 degrees an measure again.

    If there a 2 relay contact the plug is faulty. Because the wallplug should make a galvanic seperation. between the load and the mainpower

    Because the wall plug have 1 relay they are not for outdoor use. Most of the Fibaro switches have only one relay.

    I think a short test with an other wall plug will give you the answer.

    Agree

    Tested with 2 other Wall plugs and both the same problem.

    This is the first led light that has this problem.... strange...

     

    When i put in a other led light it does not have these problems ( tested with 1 watt and 4 watt lamp )

     

    So there is someting in the flood light that causes this problem i’m afraid....

    Possible the pir sensor.

    Did you also try to rotate the plug 180 degrees??

  • There is no pir sensor on this floodlight because i am using a Fibaro door sensor to activate a scene.
    Did try to turn it 180 degrees and no results.

    I don’t understand how the light can use voltage, when the wall plug is off.

    Then I think

    Switched neutral conductor

    A single-pole light switch normally switches the phase (L) in the line to the ceiling lamp. If the electrical wiring is not done professionally, the neutral conductor (N) sometimes is switched instead of the phase.

    In this case capacitive and inductive effects can still ensure that a low voltage between the live phase and the switched-off neutral conductor is applied to the LED lamp. This voltage is sufficient for the LED to glow weakly.

    What to do?
    • Check neutral conductor and phase for correct connection
    • If LED is still glowing, use two-pole light switch like the

    That's why I said to turn the wallplug 180 degrees. It's single relais contact.

    Maybe 2 wallplugs will do the trick if, so you can disconnect the Live and Neutral.

     

    @Mies_NL

    Didn't the glowing occured earlier before the use off the wallplug??

    Or do you have the same symptoms if you use a single mechanical switch??

    No, then use a 230v relais, wallplug switch relais, relais switch light.
