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 gatedtype 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
receivers 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 Controls
(DHC) Technical Manual and the DHC Troubleshooting Guide.
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.
LIMITED 2 YEAR WARRANTY AND EXCLUSIONS
Leviton warrants to the original consumer purchaser and not
for the benefit of anyone else that this product at the time of
its sale by Leviton is free of defects in materials and
workmanship under normal and proper use for two years
from the purchase date. Leviton’s only obligation is to correct
such defects by repair or replacement, at its option, if within
such two year period the product is returned prepaid, with
proof of purchase date, and a description of the problem to
Leviton Manufacturing Co., Inc., Att: Quality Assurance
Department, 59-25 Little Neck Parkway, Little Neck, New
York 11362-2591. This warranty excludes and there is
disclaimed liability for labor for removal of this product or
reinstallation. This warranty is void if this product is installed
improperly or in an improper environment, overloaded,
misused, opened, abused, or altered in any manner, or is
not used under normal operating conditions or not in
accordance with any labels or instructions. There are no other
or implied warranties of any kind, including merchantability
and fitness for a particular purpose, but if any implied
warranty is required by the applicable jurisdiction, the duration
of any such implied warranty, including merchantability and

DESCRIPTION
The Leviton Universal Switch, Cat. No. HCSØ8, is designed for use with DHC Residential Powerline Carrier
Components. Cat. No. HCSØ8 functions as a remote switching device which responds to coded ON/OFF, and ALL
LIGHTS ON/OFF commands.
Cat. No. HCSØ8 can be operated manually as a standard type switch. 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 six-inch leads and installs in a standard wall box. It is suitable for
incandescent, fluorescent and magnetic low-voltage lighting loads.
FCC COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
NOT INSTALL TO CONTROL A RECEPTACLE, MOTOR-OPERATED APPLIANCE, OR A TRANSFORMERSUPPLIED APPLIANCE, OTHER THAN THE APPROPRIATE LOW-VOLTAGE LIGHTING.
CAUTION (For Incandescent Only): USE WITH INCANDESCENT OR 120V HALOGEN FIXTURES ONLY.
CAUTION (For Magnetic Low-Voltage Only):
1. USE WITH MAGNETIC LOW-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS, INCANDESCENT, OR 120V MAGNETIC LOWVOLTAGE HALOGEN FIXTURES ONLY. USE A LEVITON ELECTRONIC LOW-VOLTAGE DIMMER TO
CONTROL ELECTRONIC (SOLID STATE) LOW-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS.
2. WHEN A MAGNETIC LOW-VOLTAGE CIRCUIT IS OPERATED AT A DIM LEVEL, WITH ALL LAMPS INOPERATIVE,
EXCESS CURRENT MAY FLOW THROUGH THE TRANSFORMER. TO AVOID POSSIBLE TRANSFORMER FAILURE
DUE TO OVERCURRENT, USE A TRANSFORMER THAT INCORPORATES THERMAL PROTECTION OR A FUSE AT
THE PRIMARY WINDINGS.
OTHER CAUTIONS AND NOTES:
1. DISCONNECT POWER WHEN SERVICING FIXTURE OR CHANGING BULBS.
2. USE THIS DEVICE ONLY WITH COPPER OR COPPER CLAD WIRE. WITH ALUMINUM WIRE USE ONLY
DEVICES MARKED CO/ALR OR CU/AL.
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 (refer to Figure 2). The side sections dissipate heat, so removing them
requires a derating of the dimmer's capacity (see chart).

3. Remove 3/4" (1.9 cm) of insulation from each circuit
conductor. Make sure that ends of conductors are
straight.
4. Connect lead wires per appropriate WIRING DIAGRAM as follows: Twist strands of each lead tightly and, with
circuit conductors, push firmly into appropriate wire connector. Screw connectors on clockwise making sure that
no bare conductor shows below the wire connectors. Secure each connector with electrical tape.
5. Mount device “TOP” up to wall box with screws provided. Restore power at circuit breaker or fuse.
6. Using a small pointed object (i.e., small screwdriver), depress and hold the Program Switch until the ON/OFF LED
flashes (refer to Figure 2). The unit is now ready to accept a DHC code.
At a DHC single controller, verify code setting to be learned and press upper rocker. The dimmer will now accept
and memorize code (refer to Figure 2).
On a multi-button transmitter, verify base code then press the appropriate ON button of row desired. The dimmer
will accept and memorize the appropriate code for that button.
NOTE: The code can be changed by repeating the procedure and selecting a different code or button.
7. If it is desirable to change the color of the device, do so now by following the “Color Conversion Procedure”.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B Digital Device, pursuant to Part 15
