COMPARE CHART

INSTEON® Wall Switches / Lamp & Appliance controllers


Use this comparison chart to help you decide which switch best fits your requirements. If you will be replacing existing switches be sure to determine if the device they are controlling is dimmable (incandescent, halogen, etc.) or can only be controlled On/Off (compact fluorescent, motor load, etc.). Because these INSTEON switches, dimmers and keypads require power to transmit and receive commands, they must be connected to a neutral wire (with the exception of the SwitchLinc 2-wire dimmer). These are typically 2 or more white wires that are connected together with a wire-nut and tucked away in the back of the switch box.

*Derating DIMMERS: Mounts in single or “multiple-gang” junction box. Controls 200 watts less load for each immediately adjacent electronic dimmer installed. For example, 600 watt load capacity becomes 400 watt with another electronic dimmer installed to the immediate right or left. Note: the 1000W SwitchLinc has heat-sink tabs that may need to be removed if mounting in a multi-gang application. Tabs can be removed but de-rating will occur (100W per tab). N/A N/A N/A
