In some cases, you may have some loads just only can be used on the voltage of 24VDC and hope that it still can be controlled by the Dual Nano Switch, so please refer to the following diagram to achieve this:



Wiring diagram of 120/230VAC power input connection to 24VDC power output. 

(WARNING: Compatible to Dual Nano Switch without Energy Reading [ZW140] only).

  


Note: The “IN” terminal should be connected to the  “-” of 24VDC input.

Warning: Dual Nano Switch ZW132 is not compatible with this configuration, you must use Dual Nano Switch ZW140 without energy reading.



Wiring diagram of 24VDC power input.

Since the Dual Nano Switch also supports the 24VDC power input, so you can use it to control the loads that powered by 24VDC.

         


If the output loads should be only powered by AC120V or AC230V, you can change the wire connection as below:



Wiring diagram of 24VDC power input to 120/230VAC power output. 

(Compatible to Dual Nano Switch without Energy Reading [ZW140] only).

                


Note: The “IN” terminal should be connected to the “Live” of AC 120V/230V power wire.


Warning: Dual Nano Switch ZW132 is not compatible with this configuration, you must use Dual Nano Switch ZW140 without energy reading.


All above wiring diagrams show that the Dual Nano Switch uses 2-Way or momentary button switches as the external manual switch for 2-Way connection.


The below diagram will show you that the Dual Nano Switch uses the SPDT (Single-Pole Double-Throw) switches as the external manual switch for 3-Way connection.
