I have a home with an old GE lighting relay panel. While It works well, every once in a while I have to replace a relay. My wife also dislikes the switches, they look cheesy to her.

I was hoping that I could replace the working by using the Din Rail (2453-222) switches. However, the documentation shows the sense wires working off of 110v. Is it possible to use them with a 24v low voltage sense line?

Those unfamiliar with this setup:
In the electrical box in the basement there is a transformer connected to 110v. It steps the power down to 24v which is distributed around to the various switches in the house. The switches are all momentary contact (up/down - on/off). These go back to the electrical box in the basement to control the relays. The relays latch open or closed based on the switch press. The relays control the actual device (usually lights).
