Halogen Light Flicker

thanks for any reply in advance. I currently have a project that im commisioning. There are many low voltage halogen lights (Osram 50W) with Osram ETA-60 phase cut dimmable electronic Tranformers. Say we have about 6 circuits with an average 10-12 such lights per circuit. When they are dimmed lesser than 50 % the entire lights start to flicker. Other Halogen lights in the same circuit also begin to flicker. Could anyone sense the problem here. Are too many electronic drivers causing the problem?

Any suggestion is appreciated.

So you have 500-600 watts on a single dimmer. Most dimmers are rated for 600w maximum.
Do you know what the rating is on yours ?

There are also dimmers designed to be used with transformer type fixtures.

my dimmer is rated for 40-500W for incandescent and and halogen lamps and 40-300VA 230V 50Hz for ferromagnetic transformers for low voltage halogen lamps. This is what's exactly written on the dimmer.
