GE 45602 On/Off/Dim Lamp Module

Key Features

  • One Z-Wave controlled AC outlet for standard incandescent lighting
  • Remote ON/OFF and Brightness control via the Z-Wave controller
  • Manual ON/OFF and Brightness control with the front panel push button
  • Load-Sensing turns the light ON if the switch on the connected light is used instead of the remote or pushbutton on the Z-Wave module (default setting is disabled)
  • One Always-ON pass-through AC outlet
  • Space efficient design
  • Does not block the lower outlet when plugged in to the upper outlet of a duplex wall receptable. (This assumes that the duplex receptacle is mounted with the ground pin down.)
  • Plugs and cords for connected devices route to the side allowing close placement of furniture
  • Grounded 3-wire power connection for safety

Basic Operation

The connected light can be turned ON in three ways:

  • With a Z-Wave remote
  • Manually with the pushbutton on the Z-Wave module
  • By the Load-Sensing feature. Normally, the Z-Wave module controls the ON/OFF state of the connected light and power is either turned On or Off at the module (either manually or by the remote). If the switch on the connected llight is used, the Z-Wave control circuitry automatically senses that the light is being turned On and activates the Z-Wave controlled outlet, providing power to the connected device. This feature is disabled by default; see the section on advanced operation for instructions on how to enable it.

Remote Control

GE Z-Wave remotes provide control of an Individual device, Groups of devices and Scenes. Other brands of Z-Wave Certified remotes may not offer as much flexibility in how you can set yp your lighting control network. Please refer to your remote control's instructions for details on its capabilities and instructions for adding and controlling devices.

Manual Control

The Front Panel Pushbutton on the 45602 Lamp Module allows the user to:

  • Manually turn the connected light ON/OFF by pressing the button. This is a toggle switch; if the light is OFF, pressing the button turns the light **ON and vice versa.
  • Adjusting the brightness level of the connected lighting by pressing and holding the button. Release the button when the desired level is attained. - This is also a toggle function. The lighting will dim until the minimum level is attained or the button is released. The next time the button is pressed and held, the level will increase until the maximum level is attained or the button is released.
  • Include or exclude the module from the Z-Wave home control network with your primary controller.
    • Refer to the instructions for your primary controller to access the setup function and include or exclude devices.
    • When prompted by your primary controller, tap the button.
    • The primary controller should indicate that the action was successful. If the controller indicates the actions was unsuccessful, please repeat the procedure.
    • Once the module is part of the network, the same basic procedure is used to add the module to groups or scenes. Refer to the primary controller's instructions for details.

Please Note: After a power failure, the 45602 module returns to its last used ON/OFF/DIM state.

Advanced Operation

The following Advanced Operations parameters require that you have an advanced controller like the model 45601 LCD remote. Advanced remotes from other manufacturers may also be able to change these settings; however, basic remotes do not have this capability.

All On/All Off

Depending upon your primary controller, the 45602 lamp module can be set to respond to ALL ON and ALL OFF commands in up to four different ways. Some controllers may not be able to change the response from its default setting. Please refer to your controller's instructions for information on whether or not it supports the configuration function and if so, how to change this setting.
The four possible respones are:

  • It will respond to ALL ON and the ALL OFF commands (default).
  • It will not respond to ALL ON or ALL OFF commands.
  • It will respond to the ALL OFF command but will not respond to the ALL ON command.
  • It will respond to the ALL ON command but will not respond to the ALL OFF command.

Load Sensing

Load sensing is disabled when shipped from the factory. This feature can be enabled if desired. Setting parameter 29 to a value of 1 will enable the Load Sense function.

  • Parameter No: 29
  • Length: 1 Byte
  • Valid Values = 0 or 1 (default 0)

Note: When replacing a burned-out light bulb, the load sensing feature (if enabled) will automatically turn the light ON when the new bulb is installed even if the Z-Wave module was previously turned OFF.

Dim Rate Adjustments

Both the number of steps (or levels) that the dimmer will change and the timing of the steps can be modified to suit personal preferences. The timing of the steps can be adjusted in 10 millisecond intervals. As an example, the default setting for parameter 8 is "3". This means that the lighting level will change every 30 milliseconds when the Dim Command is received. A value of 255 would mean that level would change every 2.55 seconds. Combined, the two parameters allow dim rate adjustments from 10 milliseconds to 4.2 minutes to go from maximum-to-minimum or minimum-to-maximum brightness levels.

  • When Receiving a Z-Wave Dim Command
    • Parameter 7 (number of steps or levels)
    • Parameter 8 (timing of the steps)
    • Length: 1 Byte
    • Valid Values
      • Parameter 7 (default = 1) Valid Values: 1-99
      • Parameter 8 (default = 3) Valid Values: 1-255
  • Manual Control Dimming (pressing the Dimmer's button)
    • Parameter 9 (number of steps or levels)
    • Parameter 10 (timing of the steps)
    • Length: 1 Byte
    • Valid Values
      • Parameter 9 (default = 1) Valid Values: 1-99
      • Parameter 10 (default = 3) Valid Values: 1-255
  • When receiving an All-On or All-Off command
    • Parameter 11 (number of steps or levels)
    • Parameter 12 (timing of the steps)
    • Length: 1 Byte
    • Valid Values
      • Parameter 11 (default = 1) Valid Values: 1-99
      • Parameter 12 (default = 3) Valid Values: 1-255

Ignore Start Level When Receiving Dim Commands

Please note: Every "Dim" command from your remote controller includes a start level embedded in it. The 45602 can be set to ignore the start level that is part of the dim command. Setting parameter 5 to a value of 0 will cause the 45602 to dim or brighten from the start level embedded in the command.

  • Parameter No: 5
  • Length: 1 Byte
  • Valid Values = 0 or 1 (default 1)

Restoring Factory Defaults

All Configuration Parameters can be restored to their factory default settings by using your primary controller to reset the device. (delete from the network)

Software Fuse

This Lamp Module is designed to protect itself agains loads that exceed its maximum power rating. An overload is automatically sensed by the module and all power to the load is shut OFF immediately.


Verify that the lamp wattage does not exceed the 300W rating if the module doesn't seem to work properly. Normal operation can be restored by remote when the load is reduced to the proper rating.

Over-Current Protection

Additional over-current protection is provided by an internal fuse which is not user serviceable. Check your home's circuit breakers before concluding that the product must be replaced.
