Compact wall-mounted lighting controller
iColor Keypad is a compact stand-alone lighting controller for intelligent RGB and intelligent white LED
lighting fixtures from Philips Color Kinetics. This Ethernet-based wall-mounted controller triggers up to
eight light shows at the touch of a button. Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology eliminates the need for a
separate power source, affording greater freedom of placement, higher reliability, and easy installation.
• Eight onboard effects and eight configurable
scenes — iColor Keypad uses onboard lighting
effects, eliminating the need for an external data
source. Use the iColor Keypad Effect Manager
configuration software to select from eight effects
and adjust effect settings such as color, speed, and
brightness as desired. Store up to eight sets of
effects and settings as scenes. Recall scenes at the
touch of a button.
• Power over Ethernet for increased flexibility
— The IEEE 802.3af standard for Power over
Ethernet (PoE) enables both electrical power and
data to be transmitted over a single twisted-pair
cable. Shared cabling reduces installation costs,
decreases the space required for wires, and
affords freedom of placement by eliminating wiring
to a power source. iColor Keypad works with any
PoE-compliant switch or PoE injector.
• Fingertip dimming and on / off control — Easily
adjust brightness of connected lights from 0% –
100%, or turn them on and off.
• Simple installation with a single Ethernet
connection — Mounts in a standard U.S. singlegang wall box. Uses a single CAT 5e or better
cable for data and power with no additional wiring
required.
• Compact design with sleek Decora faceplate —
Compact design uses wall space efficiently. Decora
faceplate hides mounting hardware for a clean
look that blends with a variety of architectural
styles.

The Power of Power over Ethernet
The IEEE 802.3af standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables both electrical
power and data to be transmitted over a single twisted-pair cable. iColor Keypad is a
PoE-compliant powered device that offers you convenience, increased flexibility, and
simplified and inexpensive installation,
A New Standard of Flexibility
You can use iColor Keypad two ways: with a PoE-compliant Ethernet switch, or with
a standard Ethernet switch and PoE injector. Regardless of which method you use,
you can position each iColor Keypad up to 328 ft (100 m) from the switch. Since
power is delivered over the same wire as the data, you do not need to use additional
wiring or position the keypad near an external power source.

If you’re using a PoE switch, you simply connect iColor Keypad to an available port on
the switch using a standard Ethernet cable. If you’re using a non-PoE switch, you must
also attach a PoE injector to the Ethernet cable, You can position the PoE injector
near the switch to keep the power and data sources together in the same location,
and to give you maximum flexibility in positioning the keypad in a convenient location.

Installation
iColor Keypad can be installed in any Ethernet lighting installation using Data Enabler
Pro devices or power / data supplies that support KiNET, the Ethernet lighting
protocol from Philips Color Kinetics. Each iColor Keypad button broadcasts a
stored, configurable scene to all LED lighting fixtures in your installation.
iColor Keypad requires data and power over a single Ethernet connection. A PoEcompliant Ethernet switch delivers both data and power over a standard CAT 5e or
better data cable. Installations with non-PoE switches require a PoE-compliant power
source, such as the PoE Injector.
Owner/User Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the contractor, installer, purchaser, owner, and user to install,
maintain, and operate iColor Keypad in such a manner as to comply with all applicable
codes, state and local laws, ordinances, and regulations. Consult with the appropriate
electrical inspector to ensure compliance.
Prepare the Installation
The positioning of iColor Keypad is generally determined by the installation
configuration, especially the locations of fixtures and power sources. Because
iColor Keypad does not need to be wired to a power source, it can be installed in a
convenient but unobtrusive location.
Create a layout plan that starts with the location of the Ethernet switch and, if
applicable, the PoE injector(s), and includes all leader cables, CAT 5e or better data
cables, and fixtures. If using a PoE-compliant Ethernet switch, ensure that a switch with
an available port is installed in the lighting system. If using a non-PoE Ethernet switch,
plan to install the required PoE injector(s) near the switch.
Assemble additional items:
• One CAT 5e or better data cable (unshielded twisted pair with an RJ45 connector,
to a maximum length of 328 ft or 100 m) to connect iColor Keypad to an available
port on a PoE-compliant Ethernet switch or to a PoE injector
• If using a PoE injector, an additional CAT 5e or better cable to connect the
injector to the Ethernet switch, and a power cord to connect the injector to a
power source. Refer to the PoE injector’s installation or user guide for complete
installation instructions.
• If installing iColor Keypad in a junction box in North America, you must use a
UL-listed low-voltage junction box for Class II equipment. You can also install the
keypad in a multi-gang wall box, or you can flush-mount it using the mounting
holes at the top and bottom of the keypad, as allowed by applicable electrical
codes at your location.
• The junction box included with iColor Keypad is for use outside of North America.
You will need the provided flat-head screws for securing the keypad housing to the
junction box.

and HSB sliders to select a new color.
Controlling Two- and Three-Channel iW Fixtures
Two-channel iW fixtures, such as iW Graze Powercore and iW Blast Powercore,
use one channel of warm white LEDs and one channel of cool white LEDs to
produce a range of color temperatures. Three-channel fixtures, such as iW Cove
MX Powercore, add a channel of neutral white LEDs for greater precision in color
temperature and color mixing.
For compatibility with two-channel iW fixtures, three-channel fixtures can be
configured to accept two channels of data input. When a fixture is in two-channel
mode, you can use the Fixed White effect to adjust the fixture’s color temperature
(relative warmth or coolness) and intensity. The two channels of data input are
automatically mapped to the fixture’s three LED channels.
In three-channel mode, you can use the Fixed Color or Variable Color effect for more
precise control over the fixture’s color temperature. In three-channel mode, the
warm channel maps to Red, the neutral channel to Green, and the cool channel to
Blue.
