Crestron DIN-8SW8-I Installation guide
DIN Rail High-Voltage Switch with Digital Inputs
Installation Guide
The Crestron® DIN-8SW8-I is an 8-channel lighting control module designed to support
switching of non-dimmable lighting and fans. In addition, the DIN-8SW8-I features eight
isolated digital inputs, allowing standard momentary switches to trigger events with or
without a control system. A single model supports both 120 and 220−240 volt
applications. Each channel handles incandescent loads up to 10 amps, fluorescent loads
up to 5 amps, and also 1/2 HP motors. The DIN-8SW8-I may not be compatible with
some high inrush current loads.

Hardware Hookup
WARNING: To avoid fire, shock, or death, turn off the power at the circuit breaker or
fuse and test that power is off before wiring!
CAUTION: This equipment is for indoor use only. Mount in a well-ventilated area. The
ambient temperature must be 32º to 104ºF (0º to 40ºC). The relative humidity must be
10% to 90% (non-condensing).
NOTES: Observe the following points:
• When installing in an enclosure, group high-voltage devices separately from
low-voltage devices.
• Install and use this product in accordance with appropriate electrical codes and
• A licensed electrician must install this product.
The DIN-8SW8-I is designed for installation on a DIN rail. Refer to the following diagram
when installing.
Installing the DIN-8SW8-I
Make the necessary connections. Apply power after all connections have been made.
WARNING: Prior to connecting the device, turn off the power at the circuit breaker.
Failure to do so may result in serious personal injury or damage to the device. Restore
the power after all connections have been made.

NOTE: Install in accordance with all local and national electric codes.
NOTE: High-voltage connections accept 12 AWG (2.5 mm2) wire. Wire should be
stripped to 1/3 inch (8 mm). Tighten terminal blocks to 5 in-lbs (0.5 Nm).

NOTE: Each switch leg of the DIN-8SW8-I may be fed from a separate circuit breaker.
When making Cresnet® (NET), INPUTS, and OVERRIDE connections, strip the ends of
the wires approximately 1/4 in (6 mm). Use care to avoid nicking the conductors. Twist
together the ends of the wires that share a connection. Apply solder only to the ends of
the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up the wires, or the end becomes brittle.
When making power connections to the DIN-8SW8-I, use a Crestron power supply.

CAUTION: Connecting this device to the wrong type of load or short-circuiting the
load can cause severe product damage. Test each load to identify a short-circuit
condition prior to wiring the load to the module.
With the circuit breaker turned off, connect the wires to the terminal blocks per the
markings provided on the DIN-8SW8-I.
Load Connection Example for the DIN-8SW8-I
DIN Rail
Install the DIN-8SW8-I.
1. Place the top of the DIN-8SW8-I’s rail mount over the top of the DIN rail.
2. Tilt the bottom of the DIN-8SW8-I toward the DIN rail until it snaps into place.
Power Supply Connections (Using Existing Cresnet Power)
NOTE: It may be necessary to use a flat-head screwdriver to pull the DIN rail release
tab while snapping the device onto the DIN rail.

To remove the DIN-8SW8-I from the DIN rail, use a small, flat object (i.e., a flat-head
screwdriver) to pull the DIN rail release, and tilt the bottom of the DIN-8SW8-I away from
the DIN rail.
NOTE: Certain third-party DIN cabinets provide space for an informational label
between each DIN rail row. Crestron’s Engraver software (version 4.0 or later) can
generate appropriate labels for all Crestron DIN rail products.

Set the Net ID
The Net ID of the DIN-8SW8-I has been factory set to 89. The Net IDs of all devices in
the same system must be unique. The Net ID can be changed from the front panel of the
DIN-8SW8-I or from a personal computer via Crestron Toolbox™.
Set the Net ID using the front panel.
1. Press the SETUP button to enter Setup mode. The SETUP LED illuminates.
2. Press the left and right buttons under the NET ID display to change the Net ID.
NOTE: The DIN-8SW8-I will leave Setup mode after 10 seconds of inactivity and
revert to the previously set Net ID.
The following table provides corrective action for possible trouble situations. If further
assistance is required, please contact a Crestron customer service representative.

mode. The SETUP LED extinguishes.
NOTE: If an invalid Net ID is set (i.e., 00, 02, FF), “Er” will be displayed on the
NET ID display, and the DIN-8SW8-I will revert to the previously set Net ID.
A small Net ID label is provided on the DIN-8SW8-I to document the unit’s Net ID in the
case where power is not available. Apply a mark over the digits that correspond to the
assigned Net ID.

The DIN-8SW8-I can be controlled via its front panel as well as from a control system.
The following local controls are available.
Manual Load Control
The state of each output can be manually controlled from the front panel.
To toggle the output between off and on, tap the appropriate button (1 to 8). The
corresponding LED illuminates and the output state is shown on the NET ID display (“oF”
for off, “On” for on) for two seconds after the button is released.
NOTE: The control system program may change the settings if Override mode is not
Establish Override Mode Levels
Override mode disables the control system program and sets all of the output states to
the stored override values. The state of each output can be saved as an override setting,
which can be automatically recalled when the Override mode is enabled.
NOTE: The control system program has a setting that can prevent locally saving the
override state. If this setting is enabled, the display shows “Er” during an attempt to
save override states. For more information, refer to the SIMPL Windows help file.
To save the load level as an override setting, set all of the loads to either on or off and
then press and hold the OVR button for three seconds. The OVR LED blinks to indicate
the new override setting has been stored.
Toggle Override Mode
To enable Override mode, press the OVR button. The OVR LED flashes slowly. Override
mode can also be toggled via a remote contact closure attached to the OVERRIDE port.
NOTE: If Override mode is enabled from an external device (i.e., a contact closure
connected to the OVERRIDE port), the OVR LED will flash quickly when the local OVR
button is pressed. Pressing the local OVR button has no effect when Override mode is
toggled via the remote connection.
To disable Override mode, press the OVR button again. The OVR LED extinguishes and
the outputs return to the states set by the control system program.
NOTE: If override states have not been stored, the factory default override state is all
loads on.
Reboot the DIN-8SW8-I
To reboot the DIN-8SW8-I, press the RESET button. The outputs will be set to the states
currently specified by the control system program. If the control system does not provide
any values, the outputs will be set to the previously set values.
As of the date of manufacture, the DIN-8SW8-I has been tested and found to comply with
specifications for CE marking.
