INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: TO BE INSTALLED AND/OR USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPROPRIATE ELECTRICAL CODES AND
REGULATIONS.
WARNING: IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT ANY PART OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS, CONTACT LITHONIA
CONTROLS AT 1-800-533-2719.
WARNING: TO AVOID OVERHEATING AND POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO THIS DEVICE AND OTHER EQUIPMENT, DO
Electronic Low-Voltage
Cat. No. ISD 400 ELV (Lighted)
Rated: 400VA
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
NOT INSTALL TO CONTROL A RECEPTACLE, FLUORESCENT LIGHTING, A MOTOR- OR A TRANSFORMEROPERATED APPLIANCE OTHER THAN APPROPRIATE LOW-VOLTAGE LIGHTING.
CAUTION (For Electronic Low-Voltage Only):
1. USE WITH ELECTRONIC LOW-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS ONLY. DO NOT USE TO CONTROL A MAGNETIC
LOW-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER. USE A LITHONIA MAGNETIC LOW-VOLTAGE DIMMER TO CONTROL
MAGNETIC LOW-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS.
2. THIS DIMMER PROVIDES PROTECTION FROM OVERHEATING. AN EXCESSIVE LOAD APPLIED TO THE DIMMER
WILL CAUSE THE DIMMER TO OVERHEAT. THE EXCESS LOAD MUST BE REMOVED TO RESUME PROPER
OPERATION.
OTHER CAUTIONS:
1. USE ONLY ONE (1) DIMMER PER LOAD. THE SWITCH(ES) WILL TURN THE LIGHT ON AT THE BRIGHTNESS
LEVEL SELECTED AT THE DIMMER.
2. DISCONNECT POWER WHEN SERVICING FIXTURE OR CHANGING LAMPS.
3. USE THIS DEVICE ONLY WITH COPPER OR COPPER CLAD WIRE. WITH ALUMINUM WIRE USE ONLY DEVICES
MARKED CO/ALR OR CU/AL.

When ganging dimmers, the side sections of the mounting strap
must be removed. Use pliers to carefully bend side sections
back and forth until they break off (see Figure 1). The side
sections dissipate heat, so removing them requires a derating of
the dimmer's capacity (see chart).

MAXIMUM BULB WATTAGE (For Electronic Low-Voltage Only):

400VA
350VA
Low-voltage dimmers are rated in Volt-Amps (VA). The maximum
bulb wattage is determined by the efficiency of the transformer in
the low-voltage lighting system. Transformer efficiencies will vary
from different manufacturers; consider 90% efficient as average.
Use the chart to determine maximum bulb wattage for typical
transformer efficiency ratings.

3. Remove 3/4" (1.9 cm) of insulation from each circuit
conductor. Make sure the ends of wires are straight.
4. Connect wires per appropriate WIRING DIAGRAM as follows:
WARNING: CONNECT AN ELECTRONIC LOW-VOLTAGE
DIMMER ONLY TO THE PRIMARY (HIGH-VOLTAGE) SIDE
OF AN ELECTRONIC LOW-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER.
NOTE: Common terminal of 3-Way Switch is usually
labeled and/or BLACK. Twist dimmer leads together with
circuit conductors and push firmly into appropriate wire
connector. Screw connectors on clockwise making sure no
bare wires show below the wire connectors. Secure each
connector with electrical tape.

NOTE: For single pole applications, cap one BLACK lead with
an appropriate size wire connector. Secure connector with

NOTE: This model incorporates a trim adjustment which will allow the installer to precisely set the low end of the dimming
range to suit each installation. This adjustment is preset at the factory and should require no further adjustments for most
installations. If adjustment is required proceed as follows, otherwise continue with step 8:

5. Restore power at circuit breaker or fuse. Press the ON/
OFF push-button switch several times (see Figure 1).
The GREEN LED will turn ON and OFF indicating
power to the switch. Position the slider to the minimum
brightness level (bottom of stroke).
6. The brightness adjustment is located at the top of the
dimmer back cover (see Figure 1). Using a small,
insulated screwdriver, rotate the trim adjustment until
the desired level of minimum brightness is obtained.
7. Check for proper operation by raising the slider to it’s
maximum position and returning to minimum (bottom of
stroke). If operation is not satisfactory, repeat step 6.
When the brightness level is adjusted to satisfaction,
TURN OFF POWER.
