When planning the electrical wiring for your home or business, avoid adding too many wall switches in a single location. Wall switches ganged together cause homeowner confusion and can quickly ruin the aesthetic of a room. Instead consider adding a single INSTEON keypad
to control all the lighting. It's easy when combined with INSTEON DIN Rail products.
For a professional finish to your DIN Rail installation, consider using an Indoor/Outdoor DIN Rail Enclosure with Pre-Installed DIN Rails(s)
. Optionally, individual DIN Rails
are available separately.
Use of DIN rails is common overseas and in US commercial/industrial buildings. Because of their ease of installation, DIN rails are becoming more popular in the US. DIN rail products provide integrators and builders a more custom and organized way to handle complicated wiring circuits.
The DIN Rail On/Off clips directly onto a 35mm DIN rail and wires to load, power and neutral. Link it to an INSTEON keypad or any other INSTEON device for full remote control over the module and it's connected load. Specifically, DIN Rail On/Off is compatible with the "Top hat rail EN 50022" (sometimes referred to as a Type O or Type Ω) The DIN Rail On/Off will fit either variation of this style DIN rail (either 15 or 7.5 mm "high" off the mounting surface).What's a DIN Rail?
It is simply a metal rail on which compatible products (circuit breakers, switches, etc.) can be snapped on. The DIN rail can simply be mounted to any flat surface (or even across studs). Please follow all applicable building and electrical codes whenever installing electrical products.
