Universal radio control transmitter
Order No.: 0521 00
Function
The universal radio control transmitter is a component of the Radio Bus System. It permits enlarging
the existing electrical system by the possibility of transmitting 230 V control signals by radio.
The universal radio control can be used to transmit control commands from switches, push-buttons
and louver control attachments.
When the inputs (E1, E2) are connected to the mains voltage (230 V AC), the universal radio control
transmits a data telegram that can be understood and processed by all radio receivers of the Radio
Bus System.
• 2-channel switch function (channel 1 and 2)
The universal radio control transmits switching commands
(On, Off) for two independent channels (channel 1,
channel 2).
The inputs are activated by connecting them via conventional switches (n.o. contacts) to the 230 V AC mains
voltage.
As a special function, the "doorbell mode" permits transmitting a radio data telegram after brief actuation of a
push-button with n.o. contact (depressing the button
(> 0,2 s) = transmission of ON telegram, releasing the
button = transmission of OFF telegram).

• 1-channel push-button function (On/Off)
The universal transmitter transmits switching command
telegrams (On, Off) for one channel. This means that the
push-button mode permits only one-channel operation.
The inputs are activated by two independent pushbutton commands, for instance, by using 2 push-buttons
(n.o. contacts) (push-button 1 = switches on, push-button
2 = switches off).
• 1-channel louver control function
The universal transmitter transmits louver commands for
one channel.
The inputs are activated by a louver switch or a louver
control insert.
Fitting
Attention: Electrical appliances may be installed and fitted by qualified electricians only.
Do not connect motors in parallel with the universal control transmitter.
If the transmitter is to be fitted outside a flush-mounting box, take care to ensure sufficient shockhazard protection by installing the universal radio control transmitter for instance in a surface-mounted
distribution box.
When universal radio control transmitters with switches and push-buttons are to be used together with
a socket outlet with earthing contact in the same combination, Gira socket outlets with earthing contact
and screwless plug-in terminals must be used to ensure shock-hazard protection even after removal of
the cover.

Antenna
To obtain maximum transmission power, the antenna i should be used pulled out to its full length and
not coiled up. Keep away as far as possible from large metal surfaces such as metallic door frames.
Do not shorten or lengthen the antenna and do not strip off the insulation.
Installation and adjustment
The universal radio control transmitter transmits radio data telegrams in line with the preset function.
The desired function of the universal radio control transmitter is
selected with rotary switch F.

Important: The delay between connecting the mains voltage to an
input (e.g. by depressing the connected push-button) and switching of the load connected to the radio receiver (e.g. lighting on)
is about 300 ms.
Attention:
The universal radio control transmitter must be activated for
at least 2 seconds (e.g. push-button depressed for abt. 2
seconds). Activation times of less than 2 seconds may cause
malfunctions.
If this happens, do not apply voltage to the universal radio
control transmitter for the next 10 minutes (e.g. by not
depressing the connected push-button during the next 10
minutes).

The doorbell function offers the possibility of activating a load
(e.g. the doorbell) for as long as the button is depressed (not
less than 0.2 seconds).
Depressing the push-button (n.o. contact) causes transmission of an ON command whereas releasing the pushbutton causes transmission of an OFF command.
Set rotary switch F to the "Switch" position and connect the
universal radio control transmitter as shown in fig. A2.
Connect input E2 (brown wire) to phase conductor L of the
mains voltage. See also: "Programming the doorbell mode".

Programming of radio transmitters and receivers
(Doorbell mode excepted)
A channel of the universal radio control transmitter can be programmed for any number of radio
receivers.
Important:
In the programming mode, the normal receiving range of the receivers of approx. 100 m (in free
space) is reduced to approx. 5 m.
Programming of a channel
Procedure
1. Switch the radio receiver into the programming mode (see "Radio receiver" operating instructions)
2. Depress the corresponding push-button, switch or louver switch for at least 2 seconds to apply the
mains voltage to the inputs (E1 or E2).
3. Switch the receiver back to the operating mode (see "Radio receiver" operating instructions).
Channel programming is terminated.
Clearing a programmed channel
Reprogramming of a control transmitter channel (channel 1 or channel 2) clears the assignment stored
in the radio receiver.

Radio Transmission
The radio signals are transmitted on non-exclusive frequencies. Transmission disturbances can therefore not be
excluded.
The transmission by radio is not suitable for safety applications such as emergency shut-off and emergengy
calling functions.
