For the following Models:

35A00-1 Leviton 600W Dimmer Switch, 35A00-1CFL 600W CFL/LED Dimmer, 35A00-3 Leviton 600W Non-Dimming

Switch (collectively referred to as Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch, in this document), and 37A00-1 Leviton Auxiliary Switch

NOTE: All Leviton UPB™ Wall Switches require a neutral (white) connection wire.

Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch Overview

The Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch (Figure 1) allows for local control of lighting by using the rocker switch. It also

incorporates the UPB™ two-way powerline communication technology that gives it the ability to be remotely controlled by

UPB™ compatible controllers. The Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch is also capable of transmitting UPB™ messages (including

current light level) when the rocker switch is turned on, turned off, brightened, or dimmed.

Each switch can be configured to custom fit an individual's lifestyle and desires. The Leviton Dimmer Switch is capable of

storing up to 16 preset light levels and fade rates to create powerful lighting scenes. The Leviton Non-Dimming Switch is

used to control such loads as fluorescent lights and ceiling fans.

Leviton Auxiliary Switch Overview

The 37A00-1 Leviton Auxiliary Switch (Figure 2) is an optional companion device used with the Leviton UPB™ Wall

Switch for multi-way circuits. The Leviton Auxiliary Switch has a rocker switch that controls the lighting load in the exact

same manner as the rocker switch on the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch.

Installation Instructions and User's Guide

Changing Switch Color

The color of the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch and Auxiliary Switch may be changed to complement the interior décor. The

Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch and Auxiliary Switch is supplied with a white switch plate. Additional colors are available;

contact your Leviton distributor for more information. When changing the switch plate, make sure that the switch is

disconnected from all power, and proceed as follows:

LINE

NEUTRAL

LOAD

The switch plate attaches to the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch and Auxiliary Switch with two latches on the right and two on

the left. Using a small-bladed screwdriver, gently depress the upper and lower latch on one side while lifting up on the

CONTROL

plate. Once the latches are released on one side, remove the switch plate from the other side.

1. Align the latches of the new switch plate to the openings on the mounting plate and gently snap into place.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch is wired directly to the lighting circuit and can be controlled by adding one or more optional

Leviton Auxiliary Switches producing multi-way circuits. Multi-way circuits make it possible for a group of switches to

control the same light or set of lights. This section will illustrate how to make the connections.

NOTES:

1. Refer to Figures 1 and 2 to determine the wire colors for each connection.

2. All Leviton UPB™ Wall Switches require a neutral (white) connection.

3. The Line (black) wire must be accessible for the installation of all Leviton Auxiliary Switches. This wire may be

connected to either phase of the 120/240V supply. The blue and/or gray wire on the Leviton Auxiliary Switch can be

connected to either earth ground or neutral. The blue and/or gray wire is only used to light the LED on the switch. This

LED only indicates that power is applied and serves as a night-light. Connect the blue wire only to light the LED blue.

Connect the gray wire only to light the LED red. Connect both the blue wire and the gray wire to light the LED magenta.

Air-Gap Switch Lever

The Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch has an air-gap switch lever that will remove all power from the load for safe switch

installation and light bulb replacement. To activate the air-gap switch, using your fingernail, pry open the lever at the

groove

(Figure 1). Swing the lever fully open so that it is perpendicular to the bottom rim (Figure 4). After servicing, push the

lever fully closed so that it is parallel to the bottom rim. The lever must be pushed fully closed for normal operation.

Installation Procedure

1. Be sure that all power to the load has been disconnected by turning off the circuit breaker.

2. If applicable, remove the faceplate from the existing wall switch, remove the existing wall switch from the wall box, and

disconnect the wires from the existing wall switch. Identify the "Line", "Neutral", "Load" and "Traveler" (if applicable) wires.

3. Be sure that the air-gap switch lever on the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch is fully open.

4. Remove 3/4" of insulation from each of the wires on the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch. Install the Leviton UPB™ Wall

Switch by connecting wires per wiring configuration shown in Figure 5.

5. Install any optional Leviton Auxiliary Switch per wiring configuration shown in Figure 5.

6. After all connections have been made, be certain that all wire connectors are firmly attached and there is no exposed

copper.

7. Gently place the wires and Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch into the wall box with the LED at the top of device. Using the

supplied screws, attach the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch to the wall box.

8. Before installing the faceplate, restore power to the circuit, and then fully close the air-gap switch lever.

9. After testing the Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch and Auxiliary Switch for proper local operation (see Table 2 and Table 3),

install a Decora

®

faceplate over each switch.

Leviton UPB™ Wall Switch De-Rating

In two-gang installations, there is no need to de-rate the 35A00-1, 35A00-1CFL, or 35A00-3. In three-gang installations,

each switch must be de-rated from 600W to 500W.
