Posted By Topic: Lights making radio interference

Apr 08 2013 21:36

I have a customer who wants me to check out his wirring because his radio pluged into the power point below the light switch goes fuzzy when the lights are turned on in his 3 year old house. All lights are 230/12v at the fitting. His raido dosnt have the best reception in the first place. Does he need a roof mounted areial?

With poor field strength of broadcast radio stations it is most likely to be the electronic ballast being used for the 12 V lamp(s). Use a true transformer type ballast and I think your interference problem may disappear.
