the title basically says it all, Iíve only just discovered it today when i touched my fixtures heat sink and U-channel aluminum with wet hands...it wasnít a strong shock but none the less this should not be happening
There are two posible sources of this stray voltage
Does anyone know how I can use a multi meter to measure this stray voltage when i try and narrow the source
- Where the wires from the drivers go through the sharp edge of the heat sink and in to my fixture its possible it cut the insulation.
- A while back I damaged one of my LEDís when I had to add longer wires, I accidently pulled off one of the contacts on a blue star and had to superglue my wire to remaining tiny tiny bit of the contact (solder wouldnít work)
