Installation

The following is the installation process of connecting the BLE Dimmer to its corresponding lighting fixture.

DANGER: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. DISCONNECT ALL SOURCES OF SUPPLY BEFORE SERVICING.

1. Connect BLACK wire to the LINE input of the LED driver. LINE is also the line of the main AC power.
2. Connect WHITE wire to the NEUTRAL input of the LED driver.
3. Connect the green DIM+ wire to the DIM+ input of the LED driver.
4. Connect the grey DIM- wire to the DIM- input of the LED driver.
5. Position and secure BLE Dimmer near lighting fixture.

Network Range

Network range can be greatly affected by a number of factors, such as physical obstacles, radio interference and even elevation above ground. In order to achieve the optimal radio coverage, at least one dimmer in a zone has to be within 150 feet within the light of sight from the iCon. Furthermore, the antenna inside the dimmer has less attenuation if a dimmer is at least 5 feet above the ground. In addition, in a multiple dimmer system, the distance between each dimmer within a zone must be within 50 feet line of sight.

In situations in which a zone is out-of-range of the iCon and is also located behind another zone, multiple "dummy" dimmers can be used as "repeaters" to bridge the signal over from the iCon to the out-of-range zone. Connect only AC power to each dimmer and place them approximately 50 feet apart from each other until reaching the desired zone location.

Notice: The unused DIM+ and DIM- wire must be capper properly to avoid short circuiting.

Note: All devices must be at least 5' above the ground. LoS meaning Light of Sight.
