Thanks, Chester, the 2 way switch seemed to solve the issue of shorting the LW400 (wiring diagram attached).
I know it’s an odd scenario, but it may help another one day
thanks for the responses.
attached pic illustrated the config I’m looking for.
due to the application, I need a remote control for some of the time and a PIR will not cut it.
Hi Neil and others,
I want to wire a standard switch in parallel to the switching block in a JSJSLW400. The objective is that for 90% of the time, the physical switch would be used to turn on and off the outside porch lighting. However, when the physical switch in in the off position (at night), I would like a PIR to drive the JSJSLW400 to the timed on position.
The question is whether the rectifier and high voltage resistor within the JSJLW400 would suffer consequence – when the physical switch is off, the JSJS400 is powered (2mA, 0.5W load), however when the physical switch is on, it effectively would short the JSJ400 and hence the high voltage resistor would need to take the latent energy in the JSJS400 circuit.
Any help would be appreciated.
(PS: my home lab testing illustrated that this operates as expected, but I do not have a speedy slew rate meter to capture the current loop back into this resistor)
