The Two Way switch Lighting Control Module is used with the Comfort control panel to control a lighting circuit. It uses a mains-rated relay to switch the AC to the lights and a current sensor to sense the current flowing in the lighting circuit. Model TWS01 has 1 set of relay and current sensor to control one lighting circuit, while TWS02 has 2 sets of relays and current sensors to control 2 independent lighting circuits.
The TWS module implements a two-way switch arrangement, with the Comfort output controlling the DC relay and the mechanical two way switch making up the “switches” In this way, the mechanical light switch can be used to control the light even if the Control Panel is faulty.

The 6 Amps rating is for Resistive Loads only. Rating for Inductive load is 3 Amps provided a snubber is used.
For Inductive Loads (eg Fluorescent Lamps and halogen lamps with Transformer, use a Snubber (eg Roxburge XEB1201) connected across the Load to increase Relay life.
