The Gira radio bus system
was developed especially
for upgrading to modern
bus technology in existing
buildings, for single- and
multi-family homes, freehold flats and other flats.
It’s also ideal for small
commercial facilities, such
as shops, restaurants,
chambers and medical
practices, however.
The transmission of signals between the components of the Gira radio bus
system occurs via radio,
i.e. no need for control
lines here. The system
is mounted quicker and
cleaner than any cablebound installation when
installed subsequently
and can even be taken
along when you move.
As no infrastructure is
required, the Gira radio
bus system is also of interest for smaller isolated
solutions, e.g. light-scene
management and panic
switching. The system
can be expanded at any
time, so that the intelligent
technology can grow
in the building step by
step. Naturally, the entire
building technology can
also be controlled and
monitored via radio.
Battery-powered sensors
offer a high degree of
flexibility, as they can be
installed exactly where
they are needed, even if a
230 V line is not available.

Lighting control – simply via radio
With the Gira radio bus system, existing buildings can be easily upgraded with
individually adapted lighting control. In addition to the installation already in place,
new operating points can be mounted with little expenditure, so that lights can be
switched on and off and dimmed from a different spot, for example. Several lights
can be controlled simultaneously or integrated into light scenes as well. The
assignment of the operating point and lights can be changed easily at any time.

Automatic light – simply via radio
Automatic lighting control can also be implemented quickly and easily with the Gira radio
bus system – not only in temporarily-used passageways and rooms, but also outside.
The radio-capable sensors are battery-powered and can therefore be mounted anywhere.
They signal the movement or presence of persons via radio to actuators, which then
switch on the lights. Thus rooms are only illuminated when people are present in them.
This reduces power consumption, lowers power costs and increases living comfort.

Radio observer 180/16
Radio power section
The radio automatic
control switch enables
simple upgrading with
convenient lighting control, as it can be adhered
or screwed directly to a
way anywhere without
a cable or flush-mounted
box thanks to its compact,
battery-powered nature.
The radio presence detector is mounted on the
ceiling and monitors an
area with an 8 m diameter
below it. If a certain
brightness value is undershot and the radio presence detector then senses
a movement, it activates
the radio actuator to
switch on the light.
The radio power section
is the partner of the radio
observer. Upon receiving
a signal, it switches connected lights on and then
off again after the set
delay time has expired.
For optimum all-round
protection, a radio power
section can be combined
with up to 30 additional
radio observers.
When below the set
brightness value, it activates radio actuators or
power sections which
switch on the connected
lights. The light is switched
off after movement has
stopped for a while.
In conjunction with a
dimmer, it can adjust
the lighting to a constant
value. If no movement
can be recognized or if it
is bright enough, the radio
actuator is switched off,
and thus also the light.
The radio observer can
do everything the conventional Gira observers
can, but it doesn’t need a
mains connection thanks
to its being supplied by
battery. For this reason,
radio observers can be
attached anywhere they
would have the best
“overview”, e.g. even
in the garden or at the
garden gate.
The brightness switching
threshold, the daily operation and the sensitivity
can be set for an optimum
adjustment to the local
conditions. The delay period can also be set when
using the radio power
section.
This functionality is convenient and saves energy,
e.g. at the workplace or
in the conference room.
This is especially practical,
e.g. during a garden party:
With the radio wall transmitter or radio remote
control, the observer
function can be disabled.
During this time, the lighting stays switched on
or off, your choice.

A deep flush-mounted
box is required for a combination with electronic
devices, such as blind
control or room temperature controller. If desired,
the system then controls
the blinds centrally in the
morning and evening,
for example.
Radio control button

No. 0398 00). It enables
the (group) control of
blinds via the following
of central radio control
commands, which could
come from an electronic
blind control in conjunction with the radio universal transmitter; manual
operation at the device
is possible.
Solar and glass-breakage
sensors can also be integrated. Automatically
lowering blinds then protect rooms and potted
plants from bright sunshine and protect your
property from unlawful
access when glass breaks.

Control the room temperature – simply via radio
Only heating rooms when they are actually being used is not only convenient, but
saves energy too. With the radio room temperature sensor with clock and the radio
motor valve drive, such economical, single-room temperature control can be implemented very easily at a later date. The radio room temperature sensor transmits telegrams to
one or more radio motor valve drives, which then actuate the heating valves. The times
at which the heating is to be switched on and off can be programmed totally separately
and day-dependent. Heating optimisation ensures that the desired temperature is also
reached at the selected time.

Networking of the radio bus components enables comprehensive security functions
which can only be implemented with a conventional installation with great expenditure.
All dangerous devices can be switched off at once via radio with the push of a button.
The radio panic button also offers you added security. You can use it to switch on all the
lights in the house and garden if you hear suspicious noises at night. In case a fire alarm
is triggered, the Gira radio bus system automatically switches the lights on, raises the
blinds and thus secures the escape route.

This allows it to not only
warn of danger, but also
ensures secure escape
options: The smoke detector switches the hall
and stairwell lights on
and raises the blinds in
case of fire via the radio
module, for example. It
also triggers additional
radio-capable smoke detectors, which then signal
an alarm together. Even
danger in remote rooms
won’t stay undetected
here.
Radio panic switch
Panic switching can be
implemented very easily,
e.g. next to the bed, with
the Gira radio wall transmitter.
If you hear suspicious
noises at night, all you
have to do is give a touch
and any number of radio
receivers and actuators
are switched on accordingly. Your house and
garden will be bathed in
frighteningly bright light.
This will surely make
questionable characters

Additional radio bus components
The Gira radio bus system offers solutions for the widest variety of installation
environments, e.g. radio DRA components, with which existing conventional distributor
installations can be upgraded to radio. If isolated solutions are to be implemented via
radio within an Instabus KNX /EIB installation and integrated into the Instabus, this can be
accomplished easily via the Gira radio Instabus converter. In large buildings, a repeater
ensures that radio transmitters and receivers can also communicate over a greater
distance.
Radio DRA receivers and actuators
Radio gateway
Radio receiver module
DRA
Radio DRA actuators
Radio Instabus converter
With the DRA radio
actuators, light and blind
applications can be implemented in a building
centrally, and an existing
conventional distributor
installation can be upgraded to radio, for example.
They are installed in a
distributor together with
the radio receiver module without negatively
affecting each other’s
reception quality.
The converter links the
radio bus system to the
Gira Instabus KNX /EIB
system. It receives radio
signals, converts them
and forwards them to the
Instabus KNX /EIB system.
By linking these two
systems, it is possible to
use the mutual advantage:
Instabus KNX /EIB devices
can be operated from any
point, e.g. with the radio
remote control, and sensors can also be installed
where no bus cables are
available or desired.
The radio receiver module
is installed together with
radio DRA actuators in a
distributor and wired to
them. It receives radio
telegrams via an integrated antenna and forwards
them via a separate data
cable to the radio DRA
actuators. Up to 30 actuators can be connected
to a receiver module.
A radio additional antenna
is required with installation
in a metal distributor. It
is installed outside the
distributor and connected
to the reception module.
18
The radio DRA actuators
include a radio control
unit 1–10 V, a radio universal dimming actuator,
a radio blind actuator and
a radio switching actuator.
Repeater
for greater ranges
If the range of the radio
signals isn’t sufficient,
you can use the repeater:
It receives weakened
signals from assigned
transmitters and transmits them again at a high
signal level. This ensures
that all commands reach
the receiver.

General information on the Gira radio bus system.
General notes on the
Gira radio bus system
Radio transmission occurs
on a non-exclusive transmission path, and interference cannot be excluded
for this reason. The radio
transmission is thus not
suitable for security purposes, e.g. emergencystop, emergency call etc.
If walls and ceilings are to
be penetrated along the
ca. 100 m
≥2m
Abb. 1: Walls and ceilings reduce the strength of the radio signal
transmission path (Fig. 1),
the radio range depends
considerably on the type
of construction materials
to be penetrated and the
effective wall thickness.
The table shows the capability of radio signals
to penetrate different
materials.
Degree of penetration
for dry material:
Wood, plaster, sheetrock:
approx. 90% penetration
Brick, pressboard:
approx. 70 % penetration
Reinforced concrete:
approx. 30 % penetration
Metal, metal screens,
aluminium cladding:
approx. 10 % penetration
Important: Moisture in
the material reduces
penetration.
Abb. 2: Measurement of the free-field range
Due to the multitude of
influences, the evaluation
of the radio paths in
buildings is very difficult.
For this reason, the range
specified in the free field
(Fig. 2) refers to uninfluenced dissemination of the
radio waves and optimally
aligned arials. With the
Gira radio bus system,
this is usually 100 m.
Dependence of transmission range from the
mounting height of the
receiver:
Requirements for the
measurement of field
ranges:
Condition:
The mounting height of
the sensor is 2 m with a
moist ground.
Level area
Horizontal distance to
interfering objects from
each point of the line
connecting the transmitter
and receiver > 20 m
Height of the measured
objects above the ground

contact

Tips and planning information.
How to ensure the best
possible radio connection
How to select a suitable
mounting site
How to ensure secure
radio signal transmission
Align all aerials of the
transmitters and receivers
vertically or all horizontally
to the greatest extent
possible.
Check the planned system
in the building with the
respective devices, e.g.
from the radio presentation case, for a reliable
radio connection before
using radio components.
Take the state of construction of the building into
account here, e.g. the
degree of drying out off
plaster and screed or the
existing doors and armour
or hangings of the windows.
To avoid telegram overlapping, do not operate other
radio transmitters with
radio receivers.
The length of aerials may
not be changed, as they
are perfectly matched
to the wavelength of the
frequency.
Maintain the greatest
possible distance (several
decimetres) to larger metal
surfaces, e.g. metal doors
and frames, aluminium
blinds or metal cabinets.
A minimum distance of
10 cm is to be maintained
between two receivers.
A minimum distance of
30 cm is to be maintained
between transmitter and
receiver.
Maintain a minimum
distance of 50 cm to
electronic devices, e.g.
motors, electronic ballasts
or Tronic transformers.
Radio components of
other function groups,
e.g. radio headphones
or cordless telephones,
must be kept at least
3 m away.
Do not mount the transmitters and receivers near
the ground and observe
a minimum installation
height of 0.5 m.
Transmitters and receivers
are not to be installed behind metal or conductive
surfaces, such as anti-static floors, sounding with
metal cladding, cable
lines, metal louvered ceilings and hot-water and
electrical floor heating.
To avoid telegram overlapping, repeat a radio
telegram only via a repeater within a “radio zone”.
The repeater is to be installed in a sensible place,
i.e. halfway between the
transmitter and receiver.
No more than eight
presence detectors may
be used within a “radio
zone”. With constant
presence in all detection
areas of these signallers,
the radio channel could
be heavily burdened due
to the high frequency of
telegrams from the presence detectors.
Product-specific aspects
for secure radio signal
transmission
Radio presence detector:
Please use only alkaline
batteries to operate the
radio presence detector,
as only these have sufficient pulse current capacity.
Multi-purpose transmitter:
Please extend push button
cables only with paired
cables for each input
and with a cross section
of approx. 0.2 mm2 to
max. 5 m. Insulate unused
cables.
Repeater:
Please install the device
as close as possible to the
middle of the distance
between the transmitters
and receivers and not near
other transmitters or receivers. Please maintain
a minimum distance of
1 m to prevent overamplification.
To correct irregular reception, it is often sufficient
to move the transmitter
or receiver a few centimetres. This reception
interference can often
occur due to shadowing,
obliteration, or reflections
of the radio signal as
sometimes occur with
car radios and mobile
telephones, for example.
