To power the sensing circuit, occupancy sensing switches require a small flow of current when the load is in the OFF state. This can be accomplished by connecting the power supply return wire to ground or to neutral. Local codes in certain municipalities require that a neutral conductor be run to the switch box, regardless of construction.
In one particular instance, installing occupancy sensors that use the ground wire to function is not permitted.
The MS-OPS6M2U-DV and MS-VPS6M2U products allow the installer to configure the device to connect to either ground or neutral.
To connect to ground, simply install the product in its "out-of-the box" condition.
To connect to neutral, install the supplied white sleeve over the green wire. For more information about occupancy sensing switches and the National Electrical code
