    Hey guys,
    Got my self a C-bus test lab, purchased a 4ch Dimmer module. Works on all channels and can dim from 1-99%

    Slight buzz sound which apparently is normal.

    Ive had the module plugged in for a few days not under any load and it has a very strong electrical smell.. Not quite burning

    Module is 2nd hand and manufactured Feb 2004 :/

    Is this normal?

    Cheers
    Kyle

    No its not normal.
    Switch it off and and vacuum the dust out. Being that old it could just be dirty.
    If it smells afterwards chances are its a failing capacitor internally.
