Decorator Switch

SWX-801 SERIES

Overview

The SENSORWORX low voltage decorator wall switch provides an attractive companion wall station for a SENSORWORX low voltage sensor system. Many spaces now require by code (e.g., ASHRAE 90.1, IECC, Title 24) either manual on or partial-on user operation in addition to an occupancy sensor providing automatic off control. The simplest way of achieving this is by adding a low voltage wall station that interfaces with the power pack controlling the rooms lighting. Adding a switch to a low voltage sensor system also enables user’s to override a space’s lighting off if necessary. Functioning as a momentary two-wire style switch, this wall station is intuitive to use and provides pleasant tactile feedback. Visually, the unit matches the SENSORWORX line of wall switch sensors ensuring consistent style across multiple spaces on a project. Additionally, there is an integrated locator / Pilot LED with multiple color and intensity settings.

Basic Operations

The SENSORWORX low voltage decorator wall station functions as a standard two-wire momentary switch. Typically, it is utilized along with any SENSORWORX power pack with the auxiliary switch input option (e.g. model SWX-900-AX). Using a three-conductor low voltage wire (typically 18 AWG), low voltage power and common is wired from the power pack to the switch. The switch output is then wired back to the power pack’s auxiliary switch input. For applications requiring Vacancy (e.g., Manual On) operation, the switch signals the power pack to turn on lighting after the unit’s button is pressed. For Partial-On (e.g., Automatic On to 50% Level), the switch signals a power pack with a 0-10V dimming output (e.g. model SWX-900-AX-D2) to increase the lighting level from the initial Automatic On level to the 100% level. Pressing the switch again would override lighting off. For multi-way switching applications, simply wire units in parallel to the power pack(s). The switch’s LED can be wired as a pilot light or as a locator and can be configured either white or blue and at multiple intensities.

Applications

A wall station can be added to any space where a low voltage control system is used. Energy codes require either Manual On or Partial On to 50% for many spaces such as:

  • Private Office
  • Open Office
  • Conference Room
  • Classroom
  • Storage Room
  • Break Room

Operation Settings

The switch’s LED is white by default. It can be programmed to be blue and/or more intense. Additionally, the switch’s LED is always on as a location aid. However, it can also be programmed to flash periodically or to be disabled entirely.

Wiring Diagrams

Standard Wiring

  • As shown the LED on the switch will function as a locator
  • Alternatively, the yellow wire can be connected to a +5-24V pilot light signal
  • Multiple switches can be wired in parallel to achieve 3-way (or more) operation

 

Manual On Application (Vacancy)

Partial On Application (e.g., Auto On to 50%)

  • Sensor will turn lights on to 50% level

  • First switch press will raise lights to 100%

  • Second switch press will turn lights off

Installation Options

Designed to mount in 1-gang wall box with 3.28” hole spacing. Units can also share multiple gang wall boxes with other devices.
