I need a wiring diagram for a Leviton PR 150 photoelectric

Customer Question

I need a wiring diagram for a Leviton PR 150 photoelectric switch having a GR wire coming out of the top right and 2 BLK wires, one coming out of either side of the bottom as one views the switch from the back side.
JA: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?
Customer: House built in '72 with BLK WHT and paper insulated copper ground wires
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: YES
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Apparently the Leviton PR 150 has been replaced by the PR 180, but the PR 150 I have is new, never having been used, but by I can not fine a wiring diagram on line.
