Default 430 Lighting Bus

I have a conventional lighting bus providing a variable voltage with each lamp sinking to ground. I would like to connect this to my 430 to dim it vs the photocell. However, the manual is unclear on how to connect. Do I just connect my lighting bus to the "Lighting bus Hi" pin (or maybe the Lo pin to sink a connection to ground)? Do I leave the "Lo" pin disconnected? Apparently I set the voltage in s/w vs jumpering pins.

Thanks for the assistance.

Larry

Default Following....

I have the same question.... If I do not connect lighting bus (hi/lo) wiring is the photocell adequate?

The photocell works pretty well, but with this install thought I would try putting everything on the bus. You need to go into the config menu to tell it what to follow for dimming.
