Putting filter between KPL8 and dirty load??

I have a load controlled by a KPL8 that I suspect is causing some noise issues. Would a device like this be appropriate to install between the dirty load and the KPL8?

I understand that filters are usually used to block dirty loads from the rest of the house, but I am looking to block a load actually connected to an Insteon dimmer.

 

Thanks!

I had to use one of these in my undercounter lights in the kitchen ..

They are a set of four fluorescent fixtures that would turn on with an Insteon signal but they would not turn off.

When I installed this filter then I could properly control the lights both on and off with Insteon signals.

:D

Thanks! yes, this is exactly my problem too. Load turns on, but then will not turn off consistently. Also, the ISY will read the "ON" command, but never the "OFF" command. I am guessing the load creates so much interference, the ISY cannot 'hear' the off command. It 'hears' the ON command because it gets that before the load kicks in.

 

I will give one of these a try!
