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 feature is ideal for powerline carrier systems because it only operates during the signal window when
Receiver sensitivity
with Intellisense
receivers listen for command signals. Noise levels in the signal window are never as high as they are
gated AGC
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

The Leviton Plug-In Dimmer Module, Cat. No. HCP03, is designed for use with DHC Residential Powerline Carrier Components. Cat. No. HCP03 functions as a
remote dimming device which responds to coded DIM/BRIGHT, ON/OFF, and ALL LIGHTS ON/OFF commands.
The dimmer 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 2 prong blades for insertion into a standard receptacle (refer to Figure 2). It also contains an integral polarized 2 prong receptacle for
attachment of lamp cords (refer to Figure 3). It is suitable for use with incandescent lighting loads up to its rated capacity.
APPLICATIONS
DHC devices 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 an ON, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

TESTING PROCEDURE
With Cat. No HCP03 properly installed and powered-up, adjust the brightness level from the appropriate transmitter using the above procedure.
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. It should respond by fading its assigned load to OFF.
2. Transmit the ALL LIGHTS ON command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by fading its assigned load to
ON at the last level used.
3. Transmit DIM and BRIGHT commands. Lighting load controlled should respond accordingly.
4. Transmit the ALL OFF command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by fading its assigned load to OFF.
PERFECT PERFORMANCE CHECKLIST
If Cat. No. HCP03 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. 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 for Cat. No. HCP03 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 HCP03 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. 6299 Signal Bridge.
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).
