AW10U Appliance Wall Switch

The AW10U switch looks just like the LW10U except it is an appliance module that can control any type of load: resistive 10A, motor 3A, incandescent 2000W. A red LED on the front of the switch illuminates to indicate that the module is switched on.

Please note that a NEUTRAL connection IS required for the installation of this module. It is quite unusual for a British house to have a Neutral connection at a light switch, however it is normal to have a Neutral at water boiler switches, etc.

Responds to direct X10 commands, and also to All Units On/Off.

The most common uses for the AW10 are controlling Flourescent lights, "Energy Saving" lights, water heating boilers, dishwashers, and washing machines.

Q: How do I take the cover off?
A:There's a knack to it really

I use a small flat blade screwdriver (blade being about 4mm wide)

Looking at the unit from the front, insert the screwdriver by the hinge "lug" on the right, and pull to the right, whilst twisting it round/up and the rocker should pop off

Putting it back on again, I use my hands, and put it in the left hand hinge, whilst trying to push the middle of the rocker (so it might "U" in shape) and then click it into the right hand hinge
