INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Leviton Residential Powerline Carrier Components are designed to provide the greatest signal integrity and noise immunity possible. However, in some
environments intense electrical noise can cause interference with the signal. Leviton has developed hardware and techniques for overcoming this interference
when properly applied.

Receiver sensitivity
with Intellisense
gated AGC
Leviton DHC devices use Intellisense, a special gated-type of AGC, to help eliminate noise problems. This
circuit feature is ideal for powerline carrier systems because it only operates during the signal window
when receivers listen for command signals. Noise levels in the signal window are never as high as they are
during other portions of the AC power curve. Therefore, Leviton’s Intellisense gated AGC will desensitize a
receiver to noise signals with only a minimal reduction in command signal sensitivity. The result: Problems
from noise interference are dramatically reduced without affecting overall system performance.
It is the responsibility of the specifier/installer to test for signal strength and the presence of noise using
Leviton test equipment, Cat. Nos. 6385 (Signal Test Transmitter) and 6386 (Signal Strength Indicator), and
to properly apply signal coupling and noise reduction equipment according to the guidelines provided in
the Decora Home Controls (DHC) Technical Manual and the DHC Troubleshooting Guide.

Leviton specifically denies any warranty of performance, stated or implied, where electrical noise interference exists at the time of installation, or subsequent to
installation by the addition of noise-producing devices or equipment, or where these components have been installed for non-residential applications.
DHC Components are for residential use only. Installation for any other application voids any warranty, stated or implied.

The Leviton Plug-In Appliance Module, Cat. No. HCP15, is designed for use with DHC Residential Powerline Carrier Components. Cat. No. HCP15 functions as a
remote switching device which responds to coded ON/OFF, and ALL LIGHTS OFF commands.
The Appliance Module may be set to any of 256 address codes, to be selected at the time of installation. The desired address is set by depressing and holding
the front button on the unit until its LED flashes (refer to Figure 1). The code is then learned from any transmitter when it sends a DHC command. The module is
equipped with polarized 3 prong blades for insertion into a standard receptacle (refer to Figure 2). It also contains an integral polarized 3 prong receptacle for
attachment of lamp or appliance cords (refer to Figure 3). It is suitable for use with loads up to its rated capacity.
APPLICATIONS
Remember to exercise good common sense when using the Home Automation features of your Remote - especially when scheduling unattended devices. There
can be some unexpected consequences if not used with care. For example, an empty coffee pot can be remotely turned on. If that should happen, your coffee pot
could be damaged from overheating. If an electric heater is turned on by remote control while clothing is draped over it, a fire could result. DO NOT USE the
remote for the control of high power heating appliances such as portable heaters.
This device will not control lighting that is used with electronic low-voltage and high frequency power supply transformers, nor high pressure discharge lamps
(HID lighting). This includes mercury-vapor, sodium vapor and metal halide lamps.
FCC COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B Digital Device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can
be determined by turning the equipment OFF and ON, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/tv technician for help.

TESTING PROCEDURE
With Cat. No HCP15 properly installed and powered-up, use the above procedure to control the unit using the appropriate transmitter. The unit
should respond as follows:
NOTE: If a power interruption should occur while the device is ON, the load will return ON when power is restored. If a power interruption
should occur while the device is OFF, the load will remain OFF when power is restored.
1. Transmit an ON command to the module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by turning ON the load.
2. Transmit an OFF command to the module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by turning OFF the load.
3. Transmit the ALL LIGHTS ON command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. The unit should not respond.
4. WIth the load ON as per Step 1, transmit the ALL OFF command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by
turning OFF the load.
PERFECT PERFORMANCE CHECKLIST
If Cat. No. HCP15 appears to be functioning improperly, proceed with the following steps:
1. Confirm that the device is being supplied from a 120V, 60Hz AC source ONLY.
2. Confirm that the load being controlled is in proper working order. Local switch, ON.
3. Confirm that the load being controlled does not exceed the 15A module limit.
4. Confirm that unit is programmed properly. Repeat program procedure from Step 4 under “TO INSTALL” section.
5. Confirm that the controller is powered and is set to transmit commands to the same letter and number code on the module.
NOTE: If the module still does not operate properly after following steps 1-7, the fault may not lie with the module. Proceed with steps 6 and 7.
6. Set the controller to transmit address P1. Using a Cat No. 6386 Signal Strength Indicator plugged in on the same branch circuit as the
controller, confirm that the controller is transmitting a minimum reading of 2 volts of command signal at the HI-RANGE setting. If the signal
strength is less than 2 volts, have the controller checked.
7. Check for the adequate command signal to the Cat. No. HCP15 location as follows:
A. Plug the Cat. No. 6385 Signal Test Transmitter into a receptacle on the same circuit as the dimmer.
B. Using the Cat. No. 6386 Signal Strength Indicator at the HCP15 location, check the command signal amplitude. Signal strength must be
100mV minimum. If there is less than 100mV of signal present, it may be necessary to couple both legs of the 120/240 volt power
service at the entrance panel using Cat. No. HCA02 Repeater.
C. If the YELLOW ERROR CONDITION indicator is lit, there is electrical “noise” present on the AC line which is interfering with proper
module operation. The source of the noise must be identified and either filtered out or eliminated (refer to Technical Manual).
