  • Simply clip onto 35mm DIN rail and wire like any other INSTEON switch
  • Optional sense wires allow for control via a connected, hard-wired switch
  • Compatible with latching, single momentary and dual momentary switches

Essential Info

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 and Enclosures 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.

Please note that the DIN Rail On/Off is not compatible with C section or G section Din rails.


More Info

Optional Sense Wire Trigger
The DIN Rail On/Off features sense inputs for special applications where a local "dumb" switch might be necessary in addition to remote INSTEON control. Sense inputs are compatible with latching, single momentary and dual momentary wall switches. Connect to any style wall switch to match any type of designer theme (antique, push-button, metal, etc.)

Local Control and INSTEON Setup
The DIN Rail On/Off has a small paddle that operates exactly the same as the best-selling SwitchLinc paddles. So, you can turn the connected load on or off by tapping the paddle. Furthermore, a setup button is provided for setting up other properties as well as for linking and un-linking. Finally a dual-color (green and red) LED displays the on (green) or off (red) status of the connected load.

The DIN form factor is very good to install on the power distribution panel or in the attic.
JOSEPH -- van nuys, CA   10/11/2013
Does what it's meant to do. And with this configuration it is easy to install
DON -- cypress, CA   8/10/2013
I like din rail stuff, but it would be cool if it was dual band!

Smarthome response: You're in luck! The DIN Rail is in fact a dual-band INSTEON device.

Great product to lead to homeautomation. We need am inwall LCD that controls everything that could go a step closer to vantage or lutron
GUILLERMO -- miami, FL   5/17/2013
I'm building the systems now with this module. Great product
DAVID -- mukwonago, WI   5/6/2013
Works great. Be aware the sense inputs can not be used for anything other than a latching circuit.
JOSEPH -- van nuys, CA   1/21/2013
Good product
JOHN -- monee, IL   1/21/2013
Exactly what I needed! I have a large house, and with water prices rising I installed a water recirculation system to use less water waiting for hot water to get to fixtures. I used one of these to trigger the circulation pump on ONLY when some one turns on bathroom lights. (4 bathrooms) I installed it in an over size enclosure with a short piece of DIN rail, the pump also has a thermostat. I've already seem our water usage drop by about 15 gallons per day.
