FEATURES

• Cat. No. IPSD6 and IPVD6 have a sensing area of coverage of

30 ft. x 30 ft., and a sensing angle of 180

(see Sensing Area

O

Coverage figure on page 2).

• Adjustable light, time-delay and minimum level controls are

located on the front of the device (See Adjustment Setting

section on page 2 for details).

• Occupancy sensor can be converted to a vacancy sensor

(See adjustment settings on page 2).

• LED indicator is used to alert the user of the status of the device.

• Adjustable Time Delay setting for 30 seconds, 5 min, 15 min & 30 min.

• Adjustable setting for minimum light level.

LOCATION / MOUNTING

The device responds to temperature changes and care should be

taken when mounting the device. DO NOT mount directly above a

heat source, in a location where hot or cold drafts will blow directly

on the sensor, or where unintended motion (e.g., hallway traffic)

will be within sensor's field-of-view.

INSTALLING YOUR DEVICE

NOTE: Use check boxes

when Steps are completed.

WARNING:

Step 1

IMPORTANT: For 3-way applications, note that one of the screw

terminals from the old switch being removed will usually be a

different color (Black) or labeled Common. Tag that wire with

electrical tape and identify as the common (Line or Load) in both the

sensor wall box and remote wall box.

Preparing and connecting wires:

Step 3

This device can be wired using side wire terminal

screws. Choose appropriate wire stripping

specifications accordingly.

AWG solid copper wire only.

• Make sure that the ends of the wires from the wall box are straight (cut if

necessary).

• Remove insulation from each wire in the wall box as shown.

• For Single Pole Application, go to Step 4A.

• For 3-Way Application with the sensor on the Load side, go to Step 4B.

• For 3-Way Application with the sensor on the Line side, go to Step 4C.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS:

• If you are not sure about any part of these instructions, consult an electrician.

• Clean outer surface gently with damp cloth only. DO NOT use soaps or cleaning liquids.

• No user serviceable components. DO NOT attempt to service or repair.

• Use this device WITH COPPER OR COPPER CLAD WIRE ONLY.

• Line Hot wall box wire to terminal screw marked "BK".

• Load wall box wire to terminal screw marked "RD".

• Terminal screw marked "3-way" should have Red insulation label

affixed.

NOTE: If insulating label is not affixed to terminal screw marked

"3-way", use electrical tape to cover.

• Proceed to Step 5.

3-Way Wiring with Single Pole Switch Application:

When connecting the sensor for 3-way control, first choose which

wall switch location the sensor will be installed in. Next, identify

which electrical box has the line connection. If the line connection

is in the box where the standard 3-way switch is located, use wiring

diagram 4B. If the line connection is in the box where the sensor is

located, use wiring diagram 4C.

NOTE: A pair of short pigtail wires will be needed for connection to

the 3-way switch.
