INTRODUCTION
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,
Signal Window
Signal Window
to help eliminate noise problems. This circuit feature is ideal for
Receiver sensitivity
powerline carrier systems because it only operates during the signal
with Intellisense
window when receivers listen for command signals. Noise levels in
gated AGC
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.

Leviton specifically denies any warranty of performance, stated or implied, where electrical noise interference exists at the time of
installation, or subsequent to installation by the addition of noise-producing devices or equipment, or where these components have been
installed for non-residential applications.
DHC Components are for residential use only. Installation for any other application voids any warranty, stated or implied.

The Leviton Universal Dimmers, Cat. Nos. HXMØ6 and HXM1Ø, are designed for use with DHC Residential Powerline Carrier
Components. Cat. Nos. HXMØ6 and HXM1Ø function as remote dimming devices which respond to coded DIM/BRIGHT, ON/OFF, and
ALL LIGHTS ON/OFF commands.
Cat. Nos. HXMØ6 and HXM1Ø can be operated manually as a standard type dimmer. The module 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 recessed button until the
ON/OFF LED flashes. The code is then learned from any transmitter when it sends the DHC command. The module is equipped with sixinch leads and installs in a standard wall box. It is suitable for incandescent and magnetic low-voltage lighting loads.
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.

3. SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION SHEET. IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT TECHNICAL DATA ALONG WITH TESTING AND
TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION WHICH WILL BE USEFUL AFTER INSTALLATION IS COMPLETE.
MULTI-GANG INSTALLATION:
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 Magnetic Low-Voltage Only):
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 75% efficient as average. Use the
chart to determine maximum bulb wattage for typical transformer
efficiency ratings.

TESTING PROCEDURE
With Cat. Nos. HXMØ6 and HXM1Ø properly wired and powered-up, tap the switch plate several times to ensure that the module is
turning its load ON and OFF in response to manual control. To check for proper local dimming, keep switch plate pressed down to
confirm that load is dimming. Leave the switch in the ON position. Next, use a Cat. No. 6320, Leviton Table Top Controller, or any
other controller, to check for proper module operation as follows:
NOTE: If a power interruption should occur while the device is on, the light load will return to it’s previous state when power is restored.
1. Transmit an OFF command to the module. It should respond by turning its assigned Load OFF.
2. Transmit an ALL LIGHTS ON command to this module from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by turning its
assigned Load ON.
3. Transmit DIM and BRIGHTEN commands. Lighting controlled should respond accordingly.
4. Transmit an ALL OFF command from an appropriately coded controller. It should respond by turning its assigned Load OFF.

If Cat. Nos. HXMØ6 and HXM1Ø appear to be functioning improperly, proceed with the following steps:
1. Confirm that the device is wired exactly as shown in the WIRING DIAGRAM.
2. Confirm that the module is being supplied from a 120V, 60Hz AC source ONLY.
3. Confirm that the load being controlled is in proper working order. Local switch, ON (check for burned-out bulbs).
4. Confirm that the Air Gap Switch Lever is pushed all the way in.
5. Confirm that the load being controlled does not exceed the 600W module limit for Cat. No. HXMØ6 and 1000W module limit for
Cat. No. HXM1Ø.
6. Confirm that unit is programmed properly. Repeat program procedure from Step 6 under “TO INSTALL” section.
7. 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 8 and 9.
8. 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.
9. Check for the adequate command signal for Cat. No. HXMØ6 and HXM1Ø locations as follows:
A. Plug the Cat. No. 6385 Signal Test Transmitter into a receptacle on the same circuit as the controller.
B. Using the Cat. No. 6386 Signal Strength Indicator at the HXMØ6 or HXM1Ø 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).
