    HWI Upgrade to HWQS Questions

    Hi All

    Have a few questions regarding a system I am working on for a dealer, that is an upgrade to an old HWI system. Have found a few PDF's with info on this but some things I am not sure of.

    1) There are some old HWI-KP15-WH (HWI Architectural wire Keypads with master on/off) I dont see this model in the controls toolbox. I do see a "Custom HWI Keypad (24 button), will this work?

    2) For the Legacy HWI keypads I see needs HQ-HWI-LX Link Translator as well as software license. Is there any documentation on how this is added and used in Lutron Designer?

    Many thanks

    When you enable legacy devices under project options the legacy tab under controls is activated. Select the HWI-KP10, then view properties for the control station and change it to a 15 button. (I'm running 13.2).

    All of the HWI keypads use a numbering sequence. It doesn't matter which keypad you use, button 1 is always the same so the 24b keypad would work as long as you use the correct button numbers.

    Once you change a link on the processor to HWI keypads, the HWI-LX is automatically added.

    Don't forget, the HWI keypads require a 15v power supply. Also, the HWI keypads are physically addressed 1-32 so you can only put 32 keypads on a link.
