    Can LUT-MLC shunt capacitor be used in 4a or 4u RPM?

    I have to troubleshoot an issue with cabinet lights randomly blinking on an existing system and all I know is that they are on an RPM of some sort. I know that in wall ELV dimmers are on the list of approved devices to use an LUT-MLC on, but if it turns out that it's a minimum load issue, can I use the LUT-MLC in the panel to stabilize the load? I'm just spitballing here until I see the job.

    Don't see why not. The 25 watts minimum load is kind of strange for modern Lutron RPMs you would think they would have updated that by now but then again we all know the RPMs are going away in favor of the DIN modules that have no minimum load.

    As it turned out, I didn't need to do that since they had 4A RPMs and they were set to forward phase. Once I put them on Reverse phase, it really helped. They just flickr a bit on startup. Thanks for your response!

    Adjusting the low end trim may help with the flicker on startup.
