Line Voltage Switch with Dimming

SWX-823 SERIES

Series Downloads

Overview

The SENSORWORX line voltage wall switch & 0-10 volt dimmer provides a stylish solution for spaces where manual dimming control is required. Designed with contractors in mind, the unit is significantly shallower than typical dimmers, resulting in less crowded wall boxes. Additionally, versatile wiring enables usage with or without a neutral connection. For dimming adjustment, intuitive raise and lower buttons are present in addition to the on/off button. Five vertically stacked LEDs are provided to indicate the current dimming level. Configurable dimming parameters include High/Low Trims, Turn on Levels, and Curve Types. This dimmer also matches the SENSORWORX family of wall switch occupancy sensors and 0-10V dimming wall switch sensors.

Applications

Line voltage switches with integrated 0-10V dimming control provide the ability to meet manual control energy code requirements as well as to take full advantage of the dimming capabilities of many LED fixtures. Additionally, task tuning requirements (i.e. capping the maximum light output of a fixture) can also be achieved with this stand-alone dimmer unit.

Operation Settings

The one button switch has configurable settings for its LED operation. The three button switch also has several dimming parameters that can be adjusted to accommodate different applications or user preferences.

High-End & Low-End Trim

  • High-end trim enables energy saving task tuning by setting a maximum level (100%-50%, or Custom) that which users are allowed to raise lights

  • Low-end trim sets a minimum level that which users are allowed to lower lights (0%-50%, or Custom)

Turn On/Turn Off Dimming Operation

  • Lighting turns on to last user level or a preset level (100%, 50%, or custom)

  • Switch can turn off lighting by switching off power (by opening relay) or dimming below electronic off level

  • Lighting can also be held at low-end trim level during off state

Fade On/Fade Off Rates

  • Adjustable time for level to ramp up to turn-on level (0.75 sec, 1.5 sec, 3 sec, 5 sec, or 15 sec)

  • Adjustable time interval for level to ramp down to off (0.75 sec, 1.5 sec, 3 sec, 5 sec, or 15 sec)

Dimming Curve

  • The dimming curve defines how dimmers adjust their voltage output in response to button commands

  • Linear (default), Square Law, Logarithmic

LED Functionality

  • 5 White LED(s) show level when lights are on

  • Blue LED serves as a switch locator when lights are off

  • LED functionality can be disabled

Wiring Diagrams

  • Unit works both in installations where Neutral connection is available as well as installations where only Ground connection is present.
  • If no neutral is present, remove the white sleeve from the wire & connect the now Green/Yellow wire to Ground.
  • Note, either the white wire or green/yellow wire must be connected. The all green wire is just for safety.

Standalone Wiring

3-Way Wiring

Neutral to Ground Conversion Detail

  • The white wire has a removable sleeve which reveals a green/yellow wire
