Overview
Applications
The RH-253 is a single pole momentary switch for
on/off control. It is typically used with multi-way
occupancy and vacancy sensors for applications
requiring multiple switch locations.
RH-253 switches provide economical control for
three-, four- and multi-way lighting applications.
Use RH-253s where additional sensor coverage is
not needed, such as in a Jack and Jill bathroom.
Occupancy & Vacancy
Operation
Users tap the switch to turn connected lighting on
or off. The RH-253 provides true multi-way on/off
control when connected to one or more CH-250,
CU-250, CD-250, RH-250 or RD-250 wall switch
sensors.
