Rated 5 out of 5 by from Radiant Switches and Wallplates I installed the radiant switches and screwless wallplates throughout my entire house. With a sleek and simple design they look really good. As an architect, I’d recommend these products to anyone. Technical support was very helpful with questions regarding wiring the dimmer switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Had trouble finding a 3 way dimmer that was compatible with the LED's I was using in my basement project. Then I came across this one advertised as universal. Made a couple of calls to the Lagrand tech support to discuss before I ordered 3 of them. Installed them and they work perfectly. Could not be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Radiant Dimmer We had a unique color combination in our kitchen. The switch cover had a wide range of covers that solved the problem. Tru-Universal dealt with the different types of lighting so that I didn't have to figure-out on my own.

Questions & Answers

Does turning off the power to the RH703PTU dimmer remove all programming and reset the dimmer to factory settings?

Asked by: George
If the AUTO-CAL was not locked out, resetting power to the dimmer will force the dimmer to reset the light level back to the factory default. NOTE: When the dimmer loses power, when it turns back on it tries to set its minimum output voltage at an optimal level for the light it is dimming. If you want to override this behavior, lock in your Min Level Trim adjustment as follows: • Once you reach the Min Level Trim desired, hold down the CAL button until the Locator LED stops flashing. This takes approximately 10 seconds. This locks-in your new minimum output voltage setting and prevents the dimmer from overriding your setting after it loses power.

We lost power a week or so ago and now the switches are all offline. Do I need to hard reset them to bring them back or is there an easier way?

Asked by: JKLMS
The RH703PTUTC dimmer is not a "wi-fi" dimmer so it shouldn't go off-line.

I was sold a radiant RH703PTUW to use with a light fixture that uses a LED Driver. Is this correct? How do I hook up the switch?

As long as the LED driver is NOT 0-10V, this dimmer should work and wiring instruction link is attached. https://legrand.webdamdb.com/directdownload.php?ti=38628442&tok=Tmbx4IYMgWSfhtWODTG8egRR

Asked by: Mrspardo
To install the RH703PTUTC dimmer, you black HOT wire goes to the black terminal, your black LOAD wire goes to 1POLE terminal, and you can create a "jumper from the silver NEUTRAL terminal to the bundle of white wires.

I have 3 wires from the house (black, white, & bare copper) & 3 wires from a light fixture (black, white, & green). Where do the wires from the house go? Where do the wires from the light fixture go? My Legrand switch has common, neutral & single pole.

Asked by: DKim
Good Evening, The black from your panel goes to the black screw, the black to the light goes in the 1-pole screw. Next, you take a jumper wire and you wirenut that and the two whites together. The free end of the jumper will go into the back of the dimmer where it says "neutral." Hope this helps!

The instructions show you tying Neutral to Load (Which I assume is the Single Pole labelled terminal) . So really? You tie Neutral to Load at the switch?

Asked by: chaz
I had the same question regarding the diagram myself, so thanks for clearing this up. I was not interpreting the "Load" INSIDE the box in the diagram to be the actual Load (light).  It is technically correct but the line showing a connection from the "Load" to Neutral was messing me up, if that one line wasn't there it wouldn't be as confusing.  I was a bit thrown by why the switch needs a neutral going to it but when I realized it has a locator LED (which would always be lit), it made sense.

In the US smart dimmers are labelled (Line, Load, Neutral, Ground). This is labelled ( Neutral, Common(!?), Single Pole(??!%?), Ground) Is Common=Line? Is Single Pole=Load?

Asked by: chaz
The RH703PTUTC is not a "Smart" Wi-Fi dimmer but a standard single pole/3way dimmer so the terminals are marked as Common(Load or Hot), Neutral(required), 1pole, and 3way.

Installing Legrand  tru universal dimmer with another three way switch to operate the lights.  Should you install a white(neutral) wire from back of dimmer to the other white wires in box

Asked by: Paul
The RH703PTUTC does require a Neutral wire so yes, you can create a jumper to your bundle of white wires in your electrical box. Legrand would never expect a Consumer to answer installation questions on our products and they should always be answered by our Technical Support department directly.
