2. Install the Infinite Dry Contact

The infinite switch setup is very simple. It works with only 3-wire (with neutral). Please follow the steps below:

  • Shut off the main circuit breaker of your home for safety during the installation and ensure the wires are not short circuited during the installation which will cause damage to the Infinite Switch
  • Preparing connection wires. Use the wire stripper to cut the metallic part of the connection wire and make sure the length of the metallic part is about 5mm. Strip the cord sheath and insulation and prepare flex cord as required for installation. Slip the bushing over the flex cord

3. Installation Diagram – Infinite Switch

  • Loosen the terminal screws and ensure adequate space to insert the stripped cable
  • Connect wires correctly as shown in the diagram and double check all the connections carefully.
  • Ensure bare wires are fully inserted into the terminal and there are no loose strands of wire.
  • Terminals must be tightened adequately as per Australian standards to ensure the wire doesn’t come out after installation.
  • Ensure all the conductors are secured tightly by terminal screws.
