The first 2 are easy, "T" is for time (duration the light says on), and "S" is for sensitivity. "A" on the other hand would be a hard one without seeing the switch itself, I would take a guess that its to adjust the rooms light when the lights are not on. (say the sun is shining into the room and then it doesn't require turning on the light type of thing).

What kind of problem?

I have the delay adjustment set on "test". It comes on right away but turns off too soon. If the delay it turned to anything but "test", it will not come on immediately. Is this switch defective? I have another for another location but don't want to open the package until I know the answer to this question.

I want to replance a standard wall switch (2 wires: white & black) with a PIR Occupancy Sensor switch

Copy following link for simple walk-thru how to wire occupancy switch

This device is made to replace single-pole switch.
Power to fan: note the horsepower range for device: for example if occupancy switch is rated 1/4 Hp, then it will work for ordinary bath fan. If device is rated for 1/3-1/2 Hp then it is rated for whole-house fan.
Each fan motor will have rating plate showing Hp. Check rating labels for each device.

When the occupancy switch model #IOS-DSIMF-WH is in auto-mode, and an additional light is turned off, will the switch turn on immediately or after a delay?

Try it and see what happens.
Occupancy switch turns ON immediately when receiving auditory or electrical signal depending on type of switch.
If you have the occupancy switch wired for 3-way, when more than 1 switch controls same light, then usually the wiring is set up so either switch can operate ... but if somebody just wired in occupancy switch and it was not set up for this specific application, then you have to try it and see what happens.

Trying to set switch for 5 minutes , and i only get 30 seconds or 15 minutes

Which brand and model number specifically?
Leviton: 1-800-824-3005
Leviton Decora manual says:
"PR180 operates by detecting motion (such as body heat) within its field-of-view (area of coverage) and automatically switches lights ON. When motion is no longer detected, lights remain ON for a selected time and automatically switch OFF.
Adjustable light and time-delay controls are located on the front of the device."

The manual is not specific about set times.

In any case, the device has off-delay timing circuit, so once infrared heat is no longer sensed, the delay period begins, and once the delay period expires, the device is switched off.
Delay timing circuits are common for many home and industrial applications.
As a general rule, delay timers can be set for different time durations, however the Amazon page that sells PR180 product does not specify available time settings either.

Legrand RW3U occupancy sensor spec sheet says adjustable time delay 15 seconds 5 minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes

Delay switches
Here is manual delay-time switch Tork SS20 SS13 where you can 'fine-tune' the delay circuit, but my experience is that exact 5 minutes is not easily set:
GE 15318 switch offers 5 minute, but there is no guarantee that you can get 5 minutes exactly:

My conclusion is that there are very limited delay-time choices with this model number, or device is defective and suggest to call Leviton.

I have installed (or tried to) three different Leviton PR 180s in my front hall. All operated the 23 watt fluorescent bulb in the fixture satisfactorily, but were not affected by the ambient light; that...

The Leviton PR180 is a motion detector, or occupancy detector.
It senses infrared heat from a person's body.

I am looking at the manual from Leviton.

Maybe this will help:
There is a small adjustment screw under the wallplate where you can adjust light sensitivity.
Use fingernail or small screwdriver.
Turn control towards the "-" sign and lights will turn on in 'less lighting conditions'

I will be here for a few more hours.
Add a comment and I will help further is needed
