OVERVIEW
Read through the entire Installation Instructions prior to beginning the installation.
Note: Fixtures are intended to be connected to a three-wire source of supply (hot, neutral, and ground).
Note: Fixtures are intended to be connected either to non-metallic cable or 3/8" flexible metal conduit.
HARDWARE INCLUDED
1.All the hardware needed to mount a hard-wired fixture is supplied with your unit. Standard “RSW-L” fixtures are shipped with factory-installed rocker switch and warm white fluorescent lamp. OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT(ORDERED SEPARATELY)
I. INSTALLING A SINGLE DIRECT-WIRED FIXTURE WITH SUPPLY WIRES INTO REAR.
1. 2. 3. 4. Determine where the fixture will be mounted and ensure there is adequate clearance for the fixture and electrical connection.
Remove from fixture: access plate (A, Figure 1) and connector (B) if using non-metallic cable.
If using flexible metal conduit, attach a standard 1/2" trade size electrical fitting (not supplied) to plate. Tighten flexible metal conduit to fitting.
Connect conduit 120V supply wires to factory installed push-in electrical connectors (C). Strip 3/8" from each of the supply wires and connect the ground to the green fixture wire, the common to the white fixture wire and the hot to the black fixture wire. Make certain that the wires are inserted as far as they will go and are secure.

Neatly place the wires back into the fixture. Insert the
lip of the plate in the fixture and slip the access plate key hole over the head of the screw. Tighten the screw to secure the plate.
Lift the fixture into position and mount it to the cabinet underside using the mounting ears and four supplied mounting screws (D). Note: it may be helpful to pre-
drill the mounting holes using the mounting ears as a template.
Apply power to the fixture and turn on the rocker switch. Refer to the Trouble shooting Table for additional information.

3. Lift the fixture into position and mount it to the cabinet under side using the mounting ears and four supplied mounting screws (D). Note: it may be helpful to pre-drill the mounting holes using the mounting ears as a template.
4. Remove the diffuser by gently lifting up either long edge to disengage it from the housing (see Figure 3). Put the diffuser in a safe place.
5. Rotate the fluorescent tube 1/4 turn until the pins are free from the socket, and remove the tube.
6. Refer to Figure 4, and remove and retain the screw(s) securing the wire way. Gently remove the wireway from the housing.
7. Attach a standard 1/2" trade size electrical fitting (not supplied) to end of fixture housing. Tighten flexible metal conduit to fitting.
8. Connect conduit 120V supply wires to factory installed push in electrical connectors (C). Strip 3/8" from each of the supply wires and connect the ground to the green fixture wire, the common to the white fixture wire and the hot to the black fixture wire. Make certain that the wires are inserted as far as they will go and are secure.
9. Neatly place the wires back into the fixture and secure with screw(s) removed in Figure 4. Refer to section IV, Fluorescent Lamp Installation/ Replacement, steps 4 and 5.
10. Apply power to the fixture and turn on the rocker switch. Refer to the Trouble Shooting Table for additional information.

Determine where fixtures will be mounted and ensure there is Adequate clearance for the fixtures and electrical connection.
Draw a straight line indicating the position for the back edge of all the fixtures. Use this line to align all the fixtures.
On the first fixture to be mounted (the supply connection), remove from fixture: access plate (A) and for rear AC supply connection, connector (B) (for non-metallic cable only). For end connection, use hole plug (E) in access plate. Insert either plug Or none (for flexible metal conduit) in hole of plate.
If using flexible metal conduit: attach a standard 1/2" trade size electrical fitting (not supplied) to access plate. Tighten conduit to fitting. Or, if using non-metallic cable, feed the cable through.
Lift the fixture into position and mount it to the cabinet underside using the mounting ears and four supplied mounting screws (D). Note: it may be helpful to predrill the mounting holes using the mounting ears as a template.
Remove the diffuser by gently pulling either long edge to disengage it from the housing (see Figure 3). Put the diffuser in a safe place.
Rotate the fluorescent lamp 1/4 turn until the pins are free from the socket, and remove the lamp.
Refer to Figure 4, remove and retain the screw(s) securing the wire way. Gently remove the wire way.
Remove plugs for end supply connection by working from inside the housing, squeeze the retaining prongs on the plug, and push the plug out of the housing. Retain for further units.

III. INSTALLING MULTIPLE ROW MOUNTED FIXTURES (CONT.)
10. Attach conduit fitting to the end of the fixture and tighten conduit to fitting.
11. Repeat steps 6 through 8, putting removed plastic hole plugs in hole of access plates before mounting, for each fixture in the row.
12. Lift the next fixture in place. The mounting ears on the mating end slip between the mounting surface and the previously mounted unit.
13. Use the mounting ears on the opposite end as a template, drill pilot holes and secure cure the fixture with the supplied screws.
14. Repeat steps 12 and 13 for each additional fixture to be mounted. Ensure that the last fixture in the row does not have a plug removed from the exposed end.

15. Cut lengths of interconnect wires long enough to connect
the pig tails from one unit to the next. Use a black wire for
the hot lead, a white wire for neutral, and a green wire for ground.
16. Strip 3/8" from both ends of each wire.
17. Connect the wire to each of the pig tails in the wire way by pushing the end of the wire into the quick connect. Make sure that the wires are inserted as far as they will go and that they are secure.
18. Feed the interconnect wires into the fixture, through the holes in the ends and into the adjacent fixture.

22. Repeat steps 18 through 21 for each fixture in the row.
23. Connect flexible metal conduit or non-metallic cable 120V supply to factory installed push-in electrical connectors (C) of first unit. Strip 3/8" from each of the 120V electrical supply wires and connect the ground to the green fixture wire, the common to the white fixture wire and the hot to the black fixture wire. Make certain that the wires are inserted as far as they will go and are secure.
24. Neatly place the wires back into the fixture and replace the wire way over both legs of the black mounting clips, secure with screws removed in Figure 4. Refer to section IV, Fluorescent Lamp Installation/Replacement, steps 4 and 5. Repeat for each fixture in the row.
