DIN Rail High-Voltage Switch with Digital Inputs

  • 8 channels of power switching
  • Supports 120 to 240 Volt 50/60 Hz
  • 8 voltage-driven isolated digital inputs
  • Override input

The DIN-8SW8-I is an 8-channel lighting control module designed to support switching of non-dimmable lighting and fans. In addition, the DIN-8SW8-I features eight isolated digital inputs, allowing standard momentary switches to trigger events with or without a control system. A single model supports both 120 and 220-240 Volt applications. Each channel handles incandescent loads up to 10 Amps, fluorescent loads up to 5 Amps, and also 1/2 HP motors.[1]

Override Input
An override input is provided to allow an external contact closure to momentarily override the control system program and set each channel output to its override preset state. States can be set and saved locally from the front panel, or remotely via software.

Isolated Local Inputs
The DIN-8SW8-I provides 8 isolated local inputs, allowing momentary push button keypads to be used. By default, a momentary voltage applied on each input will cause the associated relay to toggle on/off. In addition, the attached Crestron control system can override this behavior to create 8 general-purpose inputs. In this mode, push button keypads can be programmed to provide customized functionality.

DIN Rail Installation
The DIN-8SW8-I is designed to snap onto a standard DIN rail for installation in a wall mount enclosure. Wiring connections are made using screw terminals positioned along the top and bottom, clearly accessible from the front for easy installation and servicing. All setup controls and indicators are positioned on the center front panel. When installed in an enclosure utilizing 45 mm cutouts, the DIN-8SW8-I's front panel stays accessible while the connections are concealed.

The DIN-8SW8-I communicates with a DIN-AP2 2-Series Automation Processor, or other Crestron 2-Series control system, via the Cresnet control network. A pair of Cresnet ports is provided on the DIN-8SW8-I allowing for easy daisy-chaining of several DIN Rail Series automation control modules.
