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.
LEVITON’S DHC DEVICES FEATURE INTELLISENSE, THE RIGHT TYPE OF AUTOMATIC GAIN CONTROL (AGC)
Leviton DHC devices use Intellisense, a special gated-type of AGC, to help eliminate noise problems. This circuit

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

Press the appropriate ON address button on the Keychain or Hand-held Remote Control. The lamp attached to the transceiver will turn ON if
the transceiver is set to the same code as the transmitter. The device will send the ON command through the house wiring and turn ON all
dimmers and switches set to the same address as selected by the Remote. The Load attached to the transceiver will also respond to ON
commands sent from a DHC wall or table top controller.
OFF:
Press the appropriate OFF address button on the Keychain or Hand-held Remote Control. The lamp attached to the transceiver will turn
OFF if the transceiver is set to the same code as the transmitter. The device will send the OFF command through the house wiring and
turn OFF all dimmers and switches set to the same address as selected by the Remote. The Load attached to the transceiver will also
respond to OFF commands sent from a DHC wall or table top controller.
BRIGHTEN: On an appropriate Hand-held Remote Control, press the BRIGHT button after pressing the ON button of the selected address to control.
The device will send the BRIGHTEN command through the house wiring set to the same address as selected by the Remote. Only
dimmable DHC devices will respond to the command.
DIM:
On an appropriate Hand-held Remote Control, press the DIM button after pressing the ON button of the selected address to control. The
device will send the DIM command through the house wiring set to the same address as selected by the Remote. Only dimmable DHC
devices will respond to the command.
NOTE: The load connected to this device can be operated locally. Press the button on the front of the unit to turn the load ON and OFF. Only the
attached load will respond.
NOTE: If a power interruption should occur while the device in ON, the light load will return to its previous light level when power is restored.

TESTING PROCEDURE
With Cat. No HCPRF 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 light load will return to its previous state when power is restored.
1. Transmit an OFF command to the module. If the code set on this device matches the transmitter, it will turn its load OFF. The unit will transmit the
OFF command through the house wiring; all units set to the same code will respond.
2. Transmit the ALL LIGHTS ON command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by turning its assigned load to ON.
3. Transmit DIM and BRIGHT commands. The device will not react, but will transmit the DIM or BRIGHT command through the house wiring; all units set
to the same code will respond.
4. Transmit the ALL OFF command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by turning its assigned load to OFF.
PERFECT PERFORMANCE CHECKLIST
If Cat. No. HCPRF 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 (check for burned-out bulbs).
3. Confirm that the load being controlled does not exceed the 300W module limit.
4. Ensure that Antenna is straight and pointing up.
5. Confirm that unit is programmed properly. Repeat program procedure from Step 4 under “TO INSTALL” section.
6. Confirm that the controller is powered and is set to transmit commands to the same letter and number code that the module has been programmed to.
NOTE: If the module still does not operate properly after following steps 1-8, the fault may not lie with the module. Proceed with steps 7 and 8.
7. 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.
8. Check for the adequate command signal for Cat. No. HCPRF 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 HCPRF 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 appropriate phase communication device (Leviton Cat. No. 6299, 6201, or HCA02).
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).
