Welcome to the forums.

You're messing with 277vac and you don't understand the PP-20 wiring ? Be careful.

The white and black/orange power the module and the blue wires are nothing more than a N.O. switch that closed with a remote input.

So the white goes to neutral
The black/orange and one of the blues goes to 277v.
The other blue goes to your light fixture(s).

I have a black wire, a white wire, and a ground on the old switch that I have removed to install the sensor. How do I determine which wire is the Load and which wire is the hot? aren't both sides of a 277 light switch Hot? white and black? I have fried to install the sensor a blue and orange to the black wire, and the other blue wire to the white, but it worked for a second then stopped .

Do you even have 277 volts available? Is this in a house? If this is commercial, I would say you need to hire an electrician for liability reasons and the knowledge.

Based on your description of what you have available..... you have a switch leg. A hot wire and a switched output (hot) wire. You are missing a neutral which means you can't use the PP-20 in that location.
