Overload when dimmer manually exceeds set max value

Alex can Rijs


I set parameter two to 70%. At this level, my bulbs are consuming about 250 watt. When somebody manually increases the actual dimmer value (app/physical dimmer) to anything higher than 70% or double clicks the dimmer to set it to 99%, the lights shut down to to overload. I understand that part. 

is there a way / parameter that sets an absolute max value? So for the user 0% scales to the set minimum and 99% scales to 70%?

there is no info about dimmer, if that is dimmer 2 from Fibaro try parameter 2

Please login or register to see this link.

Parameter is set automatically during the calibration process, but can be changed manually after the calibration.


Available settings:
2-99 – percentage level of brightness
Default setting: 99
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

if you set 70

setting brightness in BUI or app on 100% will give you only 70% of max brightness
