Brilliant X10 3, Switch Wiring Photos - Closing led thread, i stated we had been the usage of a cree bulb for some years. Wrong, it changed into a feit. The 7.5w bulb is glad in a small porch fixture–the envelope stays cool, while the base receives warm, but not horribly.
Have you attempted an am radio as a noise detector? I had a strength-fail mild with a charging circuit that would kill am reception all throughout the barn/keep, regardless of what circuits the lamp and radio have been on. Should be sufficient harmonics to get to someplace on the am band. I have 200a provider for the barn. Is available in available. [Grin].
Plenty to my surprise, but, the 4-tube fluorescent fixture over the “work region” of the kitchen does intrude with the switches, with out elevating the am noise floor. It’s not definitive, due to the fact turning the fixture on doesn’t kill them dead, but maybe it simply produces sufficient noise to push them over the brink.
On a brief check, even if those switches don’t paintings, there’s no longer lots noise. It seems to boom from 1000 khz up via 1600 and doesn’t come from whatever i was willing to turn off all through a quick take a look at.
No longer positive how properly they play with x10, but what approximately trying an led lamp in that fixture? The brand new ones are dimmable, and the “40w” bulb from costco (feit electric powered preserve-power) says they may be 500 lumen. In a whole lot of applications, they appear to be brighter than the nominal 900 lumen “60w” 13w cfls. We maintain our house at 62f at the thermostat at night time, and it receives several tiers chillier than that during other rooms. Simply switched the front porch light to led; it’s first-class having mild right now. At 0c and beneath, a cfl was about like beginning a coleman lantern…. The kitchen light circuit has real issues: whilst the mild over the desk turns itself off, the other switches may also or may not be controllable. That’s the third transfer i’ve had there over time, so it must be noise.
