What type of LED's can be used on C-Bus Dimmers?

Firstly you will need to confirm whether your C-Bus system contains C-Bus Leading Edge Dimmers or C-Bus Universal Dimmers, You may need to consult with your EcoXpert in Light and Room Control which one(s) you have if unsure. 

The general recommendations for LED compatibility with C-Bus Dimmers is as follows
1) Ensure your LED's have a dedicated LED Driver (electronic transformer) that supports your C-Bus Dimmer type
2) Bench test that the LED Driver is of good quality and works as expected at your site
3) C-Bus Dimmer channels require >25W of load if less is connected to a specific channel that channel will require the addition of a 31LCDA (Load Corrective Device)

4) If the dimming range of the LED fittings is specified by the manufacturer - the installer can programmer the Min/Max settings of the C-Bus Dimming channel to match the LED fittings dimming range.

Note:
C-Bus Leading Edge Dimmers will require LED's which have electronic transformers (LED Driver) which support Leading Edge AC phase control dimming (as noted in the compatible loads section of the installation manual)

C-Bus Universal Dimmers will require LED's which have electronic transformers (LED Driver) which supports Trailing Edge AC phase control dimming (as noted in the compatible loads section of the installation manual).
Although Universal Dimmers can support leading OR trailing edge AC phase control dimming it needs to be exclusively one or the other (NOT BOTH). As such LED Drivers which note LE/TE LED Driver are NOT suitable for the Universal Dimmer.

IMPORTANT: Clipsal by Schneider Electric & Schneider Electric DO NOT make LED's which are compatible with C-Bus NOR can we recommend specific LED Drivers for your C-Bus Dimmer type as LED Dimming and Driver technology is continually changing. The above is a guideline to assist you choose a compatible LED with dedicated LED Driver that supports your dimmer in question. As noted above please have your EcoXpert in Light and Room Control bench test LED Fittings and LED Driver for suitability on your C-Bus Network.  

Is the S31LCDA load correction device for outdoor use ?

 No, the S31LCDA is for indoor use only

What is the Operating Humidity Range for the S31LCDA Load Correction Device ?

 The Operating Humidity Range is 5 - 95% relative humidity, non-condensing.

Where should the Load correction devices 31CAP and S31LCDA be used?

The 31CAP is to be use with the following two wire products
Infrascan 750WP, 751, 753.
Timer 31VETR
Sunset Switch WS226SSR/2, 56SSR/2, 31VSSR/2

The S31LCDA is suitable for use with Clipsal & Schneider Electric 2-Wire, mains powered Dimmers that use
Leading Edge, Trailing Edge and Universal Dimming.
Other Suitable loads: Dimmable CFL/ Dimmable LED with Electronic control

(Load correction Devices may not correct all problems)
Installation Instructions can be found on the Clipsal.com Website.
 

Can you use the 31CAP on a Leading Edge Dimmer?

No, the Leading Edge dimmer has a maximum input capacitance of 300nf, you would be able to use the 31LCDA as an alternative.
Trailing Edge and C-Bus Universal dimmers do not have a capacitance limit and either can be used.

What to do when C-Bus dimmer channel will not turn off ?

- Initially check that the programming is correct.

- If using LED lights, the LED may stay on when the channel is off, this is due to the leakage current being enough to power the LED, use of a 31LCDA may resolve this issue.

- If using Halogen and  the channel will not turn off, there may be damage to the electronics on this channel - Electricians only to perform this check, disconnect the Active's , Neutral and Earth from the unit, remove the cable for the load on that channel then with a multimeter check between the Neutral and that suspect channel output, if you see a low resistance the Triac has shorted.

- Advise not to use this channel and label as faulty, other channels on this dimmer should still be ok to use as per normal, alternatively you could return this unit for a quote on repair, note a repair may not be possible.
