    I have just completed a new cbus installation, having installed many projects i have never encounted a problem like this. With the lighting RCBO;s on controlling cbus, when ever i turn another RCBO controlling power or kitchen appliances the lights on a dimmer module turn off then back on again. The same thing happens when i turn on a switch that is controlled by a relay, the lights on the dimmer modules turn off then come back on again. I have each module controlled via its own RCBO and all indedividual rcbo' on the power circuits, wonderign if anyone has seen the same issue.

    I would say you have LED lights May be Universal dimmer the problem is with the LED driver not compatible with c-bus if you put a load correction device P/N 31LCDA across the affected load it will most likely fix it. you could try a normal incandescent lamp across the faulty lamp (in parallel) that would also fix the problem.
    Hope this is some help.

    Thanks graham, after extensive testing I found that the down lights were not compatible with the universal dimmers. Thanks a lot for your help
