Hello all

Have a job where the above was used successfully for many years; this as a master and 7 x slave "push to make" switches. With the use of cfls I want to avoid Solid state switches in the future.

Can you guys cast an eye over the above to see if I've missed anything? Load is >10 X 20W, I am having trouble picking from the myriad options on RS. Shouldn't max volts, for example, be rms?

Have used this type of switch to control fluorescents and fan motors in the past,so can,t see any problems,as long as you can run L,N and switch wires to a din rail box somewhere,
Regards, Hz.

Sorry I'm not really sure what your asking. The first type says they are not suitable for cfls, the second gives a time range of 0.5-10 mins. That's way too short for cfls. 2D's will not last for 1/10 of the claimed average life if they a frequently switched for short durations. So I would say neither are suitable for controlling cfl's.

New here?
