    Hello,

    I am looking at the addition of Ceiling Fans into a current project. I have read some of the threads here and there is a mention of increased motor noise. I would not want to spec something that may come back and bite me in the arse if the client is not happy with the increased noise. Moving the capacitor block does not thrill me either as this may void the warranty of the units. As the fans are IR control I was thinking of using the 5034NIRT and not connecting the fan to the C-Bus dimmer....Any ideas????

    The only quiet way to control standard ceiling fans is by switching capacitors. Phase shift dimmimng them makes them buzz.

    But if you've got IR control of the fan and it works to your satisfaction then sure, give IR control a try.
