The LightSense™ PSWDU Wireless Universal Dimmer provides dimming of various lighting load types.
Use the LightSense Wireless Universal Dimmer for these load types (at 120V): • Incandescent & quartz halogen lamps (25-600W) • Dimmable, 2-wire fluorescent and compact fluorescent fixtures, electronic low voltage, neon or cold cathode fixtures or diode equipped lamps (25-500W)
Do not mix different load types
on the same dimmer.
Do not use with fluorescent fixtures other than those listed.
CAUTION To reduce the risk of overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not install to control a receptacle, or a motor-operated appliance.
CAUTION Afin de réduire le risque de surchauffe et la possibilité d’endommager d’autres matériels, ne pas installer pour commander une prise, ou un appareil à moteur.
When more than one dimmer is installed in a multi-gang box, it is necessary to reduce the maximum load on each dimmer: • For a dimmer in either end position of a multi-gang box, reduce its maximum load to 500W.
• For a dimmer in a central position of a multi-gang box, reduce its maximum load to 400W.
LightSense wireless devices use radio signals to communicate with each other to control lighting and other types of electric loads in selected areas. LightSense wireless devices use the 900MHz band for high-speed control communication.
Using the patented “frequency-agile” Top Dog™ technology, LightSense wireless devices avoid interference with other 900MHz devices, such as cordless phones and baby monitors.
CAUTION TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE INSTALLING THE DIMMER.
For ease of installation, Pass & Seymour/Legrand recommends use of a deep wall box.
1. Disconnect power to circuit by turning circuit breaker OFF before installation.
2. Remove existing wall plate and switch.
3. Strip existing wires 1/2" (12.7mm).
supply wires to the correspondingly marked screw terminals, according to the wiring diagram below.
5. Attach the wall plate.
6. Switch the circuit breaker back ON.

All LightSense™ wireless devices installed in the same home must acquire the same unique House ID before use. This process is known as house binding.
Each LightSense wireless device is bound to all other LightSense wireless devices in the house.
1. With all devices installed and energized, make sure that every LightSense wireless device LED is yellow. If any LED is off, be sure the circuit breaker is on and the device is correctly installed.
2. Press until the LED flashes yellow (about 2 seconds). This indicates that it has acquired a unique House ID.
3. Make sure that all other Lightsense wireless device LEDs are flashing green, indicating that they have acquired the same House ID.
4. Return to the device used in step 2, which is still flashing yellow. Press until the LED changes to solid green (about 2 seconds). All device LEDs in the house change to solid green, indicating house binding is complete.
If you’re adding or replacing a device in a LightSense wireless installation that is already operating, the new device must acquire the same House ID as the other LightSense wireless devices in the house. After the new device is powered up, the LED should be solid yellow. This indicates that it has not yet acquired a House ID. To acquire the House ID for the existing system: 1. Press on any device paddle on any

If the dimmer will operate 2-wire fluorescent or compact fluorescent loads, a special configuration step is required; if not, skip ahead to “Operation.” 1. Press and hold until the LED flashes yellow (about 2 seconds).
2. Press the top of the device paddle until LED briefly flashes red.
3. Press and hold until the LED changes to green (about 2 seconds).
4. To reconfigure the dimmer to control non-fluorescent loads, repeat the above steps 1-3, but press the bottom of the device paddle rather than in step 2; the LED briefly flashes green to confirm the cancellation of fluorescent operation.

After a power failure, all LightSense™ devices automatically return to the state they were in immediately prior to loss of power. All configuration and scene control information is preserved.
Use a Wireless LightSense™ universal dimmer in conjunction with one or more LightSense PSWCS Wireless Multilocation Controllers to control one lighting circuit from multiple locations. Binding the PSWDU and PSWCS devices together in the same Group enables them to work in exactly the same way, from any of the control locations.
You can include other LightSense wireless devices in the Group. Just remember that all devices in the Group operate when one member operates. If you increase the brightness on one circuit in the Group, all circuits will increase brightness.
Set the House ID (see Set House ID) before setting up Groups.
Creating a New Group
1. Go to any device that you want to include in the Group. Press . The device LED flashes yellow, and all other devices in the house flash green.
You now have 5 minutes to complete this process.
2. To include or exclude a device in the Group press on the device until the LED changes color.

The LightSense Wireless Universal Dimmer may be easily incorporated into room and whole house preset scenes. The and the LightSense Installation Guide provides more information about configuring scenes and presets.
Instructions for installation and use are included with the relevant LightSense wireless room and whole house control devices. Application support information LightSense Installation Guide are available at www.passandseymour.com.
Clean using a cloth dampened only with water and a little mild detergent.
Use of solvents or hydrocarbon-based cleaners may cause permanent damage.
• If LED is solid green before initiating House ID binding:
The device already has another House ID. Reset it to the factory default so that it can be bound to the desired House ID. Resetting to factory defaults is described in the “I need to start over” issue.
• If LED is solid yellow after initiating House ID binding:
The device may be out of range of the initiating device. Add a PSWO LightSense Wireless Repeater to boost signal range.
You can reset any LightSense wireless device to factory default settings by pressing and holding until the LED changes to solid yellow (approximately 10 seconds). During the process, the LED flashes yellow and when complete, it changes to solid yellow. The device can then be reconfigured, exactly like any new device (see the Set House ID section).
