Easy DIN rail installation

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 controller to control all the lighting. It's easy when combined with INSTEON DIN Rail products.


The DIN Rail Dimmer module 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 On/Off is compatible with the "Top hat rail EN50022" (sometimes referred to as a Type O or Type Ω) The DIN Rail On/Off will fit either variation of this style DIN rail (either 15 or 7.5 mm "high" off the mounting surface).

What is a DIN rail?

A DIN rail is is simply a metal rail on which compatible products (circuit breakers, switches, etc.) can be snapped on to. Common electrical switch-boards and enclosures have a DIN rail behind the devices. The DIN rail can simply be mounted to any flat surface (or even across studs).

This product must be installed by a licensed electrical contractor.
