INSTEON LampLinc V2 Dimmer User’s Guide

X10 PROGRAMMING OPTIONS

LampLinc Dimmer is backward-compatible with X10, meaning that it can respond to X10 commands from an X10 Controller. However, to operate LampLinc Dimmer in X10 mode, you must first set up an

X10 Primary Address. As It ships from the factory, or after a factory reset procedure, LampLinc Dimmer will have no X10 Primary Address set up.

Setting the X10 Primary Address

You must do this before LampLinc Dimmer will respond to X10 commands. You can use any of the

256 possible X10 addresses for the X10 Primary Address.

1. Press and hold the black SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer for 3 seconds. The white Status LED will begin flashing and the lamp you are controlling will blink to confirm that you are setting up an X10

Primary Address.

2. Use an X10 Controller to send an X10 ON command THREE TIMES (e.g. A1 ON A1 ON A1 ON).

You have about 30 seconds to perform this step before setup mode expires. (NOTE: If you send an

X10 OFF command during this step, Local Control will be disabled. See the next section for an explanation.)

3. Once LampLinc Dimmer has received the X10 Address and X10 ON or X10 OFF THREE TIMES, the

Status LED on LampLinc Dimmer will stop flashing and the X10 Primary Address will be set.

Removing the X10 Primary Address

1. Press and hold the black SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer for 3 seconds. The white Status LED will begin flashing and the lamp you are controlling will blink to confirm that you are setting up an X10

Primary Address.

2. Press and hold the black SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer for 3 seconds again and send any X10 address THREE TIMES (e.g. A1 ON A1 ON A1 ON). The white Status LED will stop flashing and the lamp you are controlling will blink again to confirm that you have removed the X10 Primary Address.

Enabling or Disabling Local Control

Local Control allows you to manually turn on the lamp you plugged into LampLinc Dimmer by using the switch on the lamp itself, without sending a command from an X10 or INSTEON Controller. By default,

Local Control is enabled. You can disable Local Control by setting the X10 Primary Address using an

X10 OFF command in Step 2 above. Remember that if the switch on the lamp itself is turned off,

LampLinc Dimmer will not be able to control the lamp.

Setting the X10 On-Level for the X10 Primary Address

The X10 On-Level is the brightness that the lamp you are controlling will go to when you turn it on using an X10 Controller. The X10 On-Level can be adjusted from OFF to 100% brightness. The default is

100%

1. Using the BRIGHT, DIM, ON, or OFF Buttons on any Controller, adjust the brightness of the lamp you are controlling to the desired On-Level. the X10 On-Level setting.

Enabling X10 Resume Dim

If X10 Resume Dim is enabled, LampLinc Dimmer will remember the last brightness level to which it was set. Then, when an X10 ON command is received from an X10 Controller, the lamp will go to the remembered brightness, rather than to the X10 On-Level.

To enable X10 Resume Dim, set up an X10 Primary Address On-Level of OFF (or zero). To disable X10

Resume Dim, set up an X10 Primary Address On-Level of anything but OFF.

See the section Setting the X10 On-Level for the X10 Primary Address, above, for instructions (briefly, set

the brightness, then tap the SET Button).

Setting the X10 Ramp Rate for the X10 Primary Address

The X10 Ramp Rate sets the time it will take for the lamp you are controlling to go from OFF to the X10

On-Level brightness, or from the X10 On-Level brightness to OFF, when LampLinc Dimmer receives an

X10 ON or X10 OFF command. This time is adjustable from 0.1 to 9 seconds to ramp between full-ON and full-OFF. The default is 0.5 second.

3. Use the BRIGHT or DIM Buttons on any Controller to adjust the X10 Ramp Rate of the lamp you are controlling. Adjust the X10 Ramp Rate to be faster by pressing the BRIGHT Button, or adjust it to be slower by pressing the DIM Button. The table below gives the approximate relationship between brightness and Ramp Rate.

NOTE

If the lamp is ramping to less than full brightness, then the time it will take will be proportionately less. For instance, if the lamp is going to half brightness, the time it will take for a given Ramp

Rate will be halved.

NOTE

When adjusting LampLinc Dimmer’s Ramp Rate using an INSTEON Controller, the INSTEON setting will override any previous X10 Ramp Rate set up for the X10 Primary Address. If you need separate Ramp Rates for INSTEON and X10, simply set up an additional X10 address, known as an X10 Scene Address, then set the desired X10 Ramp Rate for that X10 Scene Address. Each

X10 Address can have its own X10 On-Level and X10 Ramp Rate. For detailed instructions on programming these additional X10 Scene Addresses, please refer to the next section,

ADVANCED X10 PROGRAMMING OPTIONS.
