Building Fibaro central cabinets.


Recommended Posts

Hi, Does anyone have experience building a cabinet with dinrail modules with Fibaro dimmer/relais. I have a project with 4 cabinets and about 25 dimming modules per cabinet. I know about the Din-rail adapters but what is inportant reguarding cabels, cooling, spacing, signals and other stuff ??? Like to hear your thoughts.

Be very carefull with the power cables running in the walls to the physical switches.  If they are poor quality and long you will have an induction current that will trigger the fibaro switch/dimmer by itself.

  • Thanks Momos,


    Any advice what cables to use to the switches? is this just normal 2,5mm2 wire?

    if the cables are long better to use cables that has insulation in between the wires also. But all in all, better stay away from such a solution if the cables are longer then 15-20m

    If you have cables to toggle/momentary switches longer than 20 meters, it's needed to use at least 100 kOhm resistor to get rid off parasitic interference.


    Resistor connection for Fibaro Switch is S1/S2 <-> L. For Dimmer S1/S2 <-> SX. Connection are made on module not toggle/momentary switch side.
