Hi everyone,

Along with about 20 LD11 I have a single AD10 DIN module controlling our
di=
ning room lights (florescent tubes) that has now become stuck ON i.e. I
can=
't turn the lights off from the switch or by powerline signal. I'm
assuming=
this is because the relay contact has welded itself due to arcing.

Since no one seems to sell the AD10/11 modules any longer and because I
alw=
ays hated the "thunk" of the AD10 as it switched on/off I thought
I'd try h=
acking it to use a solid state relay (SSR) (https://hackaday.com/2007/12/19=
/silent-x10-mod-cheap-ssr/)

The only problem is that I can no longer find any online articles that
actu=
ally detail how to do this. Does anyone on the list happen to have kept an
=
offline copy of this or know what's involved?

Marcus
