INSTALLATION VIDEOS

Product Overview

                The RA2 Select family of In-line Dimmers and Switches can control lighting and motor loads both locally and remotely when paired with Pico wireless controls or Radio Power Saver occupancy/vacancy sensors. This provides a system that is convenient and easy to install.


                SPECIFICATIONS

                Power Input - 220–240VAC, 50/60 Hz.
                In-line Dimmer Power Output - 250W, 1A.
                In-line Switch Power Output - 6AX for general lighting loads; 2A, 0.5HP for motor loads.
                ** AX means that the module can drive inductive, as well as resistive loads, of that rating.

                INSTALLATION STEPS [RETROFIT]

                The following installation steps are  applicable to both inline dimmers and switches (with differences indicated where applicable), for retrofit homes.

                Step 1

                Identify the circuit landing point. This might mean uninstalling the light fixture at the landing point. The landing point is the point that the supply cable meets the load cable. 

                The supply cable is the cable that brings power from the Distribution Board to the lighting fixtures.

                The load cable is the cable that connects the lighting circuit.

                Step 2

                Identify the supply cables and the load cables. To do this, you need to carefully disconnect the supply from the lighting circuit using your Lineman’s Plier. With your tester, identify the cable that brings power supply to the lighting loads.

                Step 3

                Shut off power to the supply cable from the Distribution Board. This would involve turning off the supply circuit breaker. Test your supply cable to be sure that there is no flow of current.

                Step 4

                Trim your cable wires neatly. Be mindful of excess wires sticking out of the cable.

                Step 5

                Connect the load live and neutral cables to the load terminals of your inline module and screw tightly.

                Step 6

                Connect the supply live and neutral cables to the input terminals of your inline module.

                Step 7

                Lie the cables neatly underneath the strain relief and cover the terminals with the cap provided.

                Step 8

                Screw the cap tightly.

                Step 9

                Turn the circuit breaker back on to test your connection.

                Step 10

                The light on the In-line module should show a solid green and then go OFF after 5 seconds.

                Step 11

                Press the button on the In-line module

                • If installing an In-line switch, you will hear a click from the module and the load should toggle on or off.

                • If installing an In-line dimmer, the light on the dimmer will come on for 5 seconds while the lighting load will ramp up or down.

                Step 12

                Carefully fit in the In-line module through the lighting load’s opening into the ceiling. If this is cove light, carefully hide it in the groove with the LED lights and re-install your lighting load.

                INSTALLATION STEPS [NEW PROJECTS]

                The following installation steps are  applicable to both inline dimmers and switches (with differences indicated where applicable), for new homes.

                Step 1

                Instruct the electrical contractors to run the electrical cables (live & neutral) from loads to a central location, or to access hatches (preferably for storey buildings). Each of the cables need to be labeled at the central location. This needs to be supervised thoroughly to avoid challenges in the future.

                Step 2

                Neatly cut out the Plywood/Wire landing  boards to accommodate In-line modules per access hatch. Likewise, if a central Head-End is provided, the Plywood board should accommodate all the In-line modules.

                Step 3

                Arrange the In-line modules on the Plywood board, with 0.05m between each module. 

                Step 4

                Using the Screw Gun, drive screws through the gaps at the top and bottom of each In-line module. Be sure the screws hold them firmly.

                Step 5

                Label each In-line module based on the load that is to be connected.

                Step 6

                Identify the supply cables and the load cables. These should have been pre-labeled. Manage these cables through the spaces between the modules, to their respective In-line modules.

                Step 7

                Trim your cable wires neatly. Be mindful of excess wires sticking out of the cable.

                Step 8

                Connect the load live and neutral cables to the load terminals of your In-line modules and screw tightly.

                Step 9

                Connect the supply live and neutral cables to the input terminals of your In-line modules. You will daisy chain this supply to each inline module. [picture required]

                Step 10

                Lie the cables neatly underneath the strain reliefs and cover the terminals with the cap provided.

                Step 11

                Screw the cap tightly.

                Step 12

                Turn the circuit breaker supplying power on to test your connection.

                Step 13

                The light on the In-line modules should show a solid green and then go OFF after 5 seconds.

                Step 14

                Press the buttons on the In-line modules.

                If installing an In-line switch, you will hear a click from the module and the load should toggle on or off.

                If installing an In-line dimmer, the light on the dimmer will come on for 5 seconds while the lighting load will ramp up or down.

                Step 15

                Carefully fit in the Plywood board into their respective access hatches. For Head-End installation, mount the board on your installation surface. This can be on the wall, or in an adaptable box.
