Lutron Shunt Capacitor to assist with non-neutral based digital switches in meeting minimum load requirements. The LUT-MLC comes in the package with Lutron digital switches that do not require a neutral connection. In most scenarios, it is not needed, however if the switch is wired in and it does not completely turn off the light or flashes/flickers in the off state, the LUT-MLC will need to be installed either in the switch's junction box or in the first fixture of the lighting circuit.
The LUT-MLC was only designed to be used on Lutron digital switches. They should not be used on dimmers with the exception of ones rated for electronic low voltage, such as the Caseta PD-5NE. The LUT-MLC will only help with a light not turning completely off once the switch has been turned off. It will not help with other dimming issues caused by the type of light bulb, such as flashing or buzzing.
