The Linear PD300Z-2 is a Z-Wave lamp dimmer module. The unit simply plugs into a standard 120VAC power outlet. There is a 2-prong (ungrounded) and a 3-prong (grounded) AC outlet located on each end of this module. The 2-prong outlet is the only one that can be controlled by Z-Wave technology. It supports up to a 300 watt load. Wattage is generally printed on each bulb so just add the sum of the bulb's wattage. Also this dimmer module is not designed for non-resistive loads such as Compact Fluorescent (CFL) bulbs. The grounded outlet is always live and cannot be controlled via Z-Wave. It is simply a pass through that prevents the module from taking up any AC outlet real estate. If you are looking to control a grounded appliance via Z-Wave, we recommend you check out the Linear PS-15Z-2 (up to 120VAC, 15A) or the FS20Z-1 (up to 277VAC, 20A) appliance modules.
The PD300Z-2 is the ideal device for testing and learning how to include Z-Wave nodes in the mesh network. The dexterity and ease of install for this device is what makes it a perfect fit for being the first device added to the network or the last for offering a bridge in your mesh network. Also, all Linear devices support "beaming" which allows other Z-wave devices to hop from node to node back to the controller. Z-wave mesh networks only support 4 total hops back to the brain. Although it varies it is best to have no more than 30-50 feet between each device.
In order to add the PD300Z-2 to your Z-wave network you will need to put the controller in "inclusion mode." Once in inclusion mode you can tap the learning button on the dimmer module twice. Be patient. Z-wave is a bit latent when it comes to inclusion. Wait for a few minutes before testing after inclusion. The first troubleshooting step for faulty Z-wave devices is to exclude and re-include the device. For this device, exclusion is the same process as inclusion. Place the controller in "exclusion mode" and tap the ID button twice on the module. Then you can try to re-include if desired.
After the PD300Z-2 is added to your network, it is designed to offer wireless (Z-wave) control and integration into your controller's scenes, rules and scheduling for any other included Z-Wave devices.
