Multi-Pack Savings Available: Each


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.

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 Dimmer 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 Dimmer is compatible with the "Top hat rail EN 50022" (sometimes referred to as a Type O or Type Ω) The DIN Rail Dimmer 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 Dimmer is not compatible with C section or G section Din rails.

Optional Sense Wire Trigger

The DIN Rail Dimmer 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 Dimmer has a small paddle that operates exactly the same as the best-selling SwitchLinc paddles. So, you can turn the connected load on, off or control its brightness by pressing and holding 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.
