    Question Sivoia QS Wireless Power Options?

    Looking at the Shades Product Guide, I see that the QSPS-P1-1-50 is available to power individual EDUs. It looks like these plug into a standard electrical outlet.

    1. Can someone confirm for me that the QSPS-P1-1-50 does, in fact, plug into an outlet?
    2. If so, is there a hard-wired option for EDU power? I didn't see anything in the Guide, but did find the QSPS-J1-1-50 through a Google search. Is this the hard-wired equivalent of the QSPS-P1-1-50?
    3. If so, how does the QSPS-J1-1-50's 4 x 4 J box setup work? Is the J box recessed into the wall and then the QSPS-J1-1-50 wall mounted? Does the QSPS-J1-1-50 then cover the J box and the hole in the drywall, or is a plate/cover needed, or does the J box and QSPS-J1-1-50 go behind the wall?
    3 . Would one QSPS-P/J1-1-50 be needed for each EDU in a tandem (sheers and blackout) setup, or can both the sheer's and the blackout's EDU be driven by a single QSPS-P/J1-1-50?

    1. Yes it connects to a standard 3 prong power cord like you find on computers, televisions, etc.
    2. Yes J1 is hard-wired. Also the smart power panel exists but is $$$.
    3. It mounts on a 4" j-box which can be recessed or surface mount. It does sit on top of and cover the box. The wires for the EDU come out the side only the input power comes through the back.
    4. (aka second 3) These power supplies output around 2.5A or 8 PDUs. Consult your motor/load power requirements depending on the size of the shade & motor type. The official recommendation is one per motor.

    Note that you could use any good quality 24VDC power supply, just follow the 2.5A per motor rule to be safe. This may give Lutron a reason to deny your warranty claim though.

    That's just the info I was looking for. Thanks for your help.
