2.2Usage&areasofuse
The push button contains of almost all of the functions of the binary input. It is designed for flush mounting. By a pushing a button the push button can call parameterized functions like dimming or call whole scenes. The plus variant contains additional of up to 8 bicolored LEDs for the respective buttons and a bicolored orientation LED and a 4 logic blocks. The LEDS can be parameterized individually. 2.4Structure&Handling
The push button contains, depending on the design, of 2 to 8 buttons, which can be parameterized individually. Additional LEDs exists at the plus variant. The bus can be connected at the back of the push buttons. Furthermore all push buttons contains of the standard elements programming button and programming LED at the side of the push buttons. The Illustration shows an 8‐fold push button, at the left a normal one and at the right the plus variant: Figure 3: Overview hardware module Push Button(left: BE‐TA5508.01; right: BE‐TA55P8.01) 6

The push buttons contains of an invisible cover plate, which is included at the delivery of the push buttons. This cover plate is for the protection of the labeling. When the labeling was inserted, the cover plate can be installed. The cover plate has two lugs at every side, which must engage in the intended executions. For the installation of the cover plate, one side is inserted into the execution. Now you must curve the cover plate a bit, so the second lug fits into the execution. The cover plate should be installed with the plain side up. There are 2 opportunities for the labeling of the push buttons. When the push button is not to be labeled, a grey insert plate is included, which can be inserted behind the invisible cover plate. If you want to label the push button, you will find a free pattern in the download section at our homepage www.mdtautomation.de. This copy pattern can be adapted to your parameterization and inserted behind the clear cover plate without the grey insert plate. For dismantling the cover plate, one button is pushed. Now you can lift the cover plate best with a pointy object. So the cover plate jumps out of its execution and can be removed. 2.5Functions
The functionality is identical for every channel. The device contains of 2, 4, 6 or 8 buttons based on the hardware design. The designation of the channels is always in a consecutive alphabetic order. There are three possible functionalities for each channel:  Disabled No function is set to the channel, so this channel does not contain of any communication objects.  Channels grouped If you select a pair of channel as “channels grouped”, you will be able to parameterize the pair of channels as dimming‐function, shutter‐function or switching‐ function.  Channels unique If you select a pair of channels as “channels unique”, you will be able to parameterize each channel for itself as switch, counter, scene, switch short/long, one button dimming or one button shutter. At the plus variant, there are additional 4 logic functions (and/or) containing of up to two additional input objects. Furthermore the plus variant contains of one bicolored LED per channel, which are individual parameterize able, and one bicolored operating LED. 7

3 Communicationobjects
3.1 Communicationobjectsperchannel
The communication objects appear for every channel in dependence of the respective parameterization. 10 numbers (0‐9, 10‐19,…) for communication objects are automatically assigned for every pair of channels. The numeration is consecutive, so the channel pair A/B can only have the numbers from 0 to 9, the same if they parameterized as grouped channels or unique channels. With every following channel pair the numbers of the objects increase by 10, even if a channel pair is disabled. If you choose a channel pair as unique, the channel, which is first in the alphabet, will become the first 5 numbers and the other one will become the following five numbers (e.g. channel A‐‐>0‐4 and channel B‐‐>5‐9). The numeration of the channels is always the same, even if some channels are disabled. At the plus variant, there are additional objects for the LEDs and the logic blocks. The communication objects for the logic follow on the objects for the channels. There are up to 12 objects for the logic function, so 12 numbers are reserved for the logic function, e.g. the numbers from 40 to 51 at an 8‐
fold push button. The communication objects for the LEDs start consequently with the first numbers after the logic blocks. According to the parameterization, one communication object per LED can be shown. So there are 9 objects at the plus variant of an 8‐fold push button and one blocking object. The follow The following illustration shows the communication objects for the channels. Channel A/B is selected as “channels grouped” and parameterized as a dimming function. The channels C/D are selected as “channels unique” thus every channel can become an individual function. Channel C is parameterized as switching‐function and channel D is parameterized as scene‐function. The channels E/F are also selected as unique channels. Channel E is parameterized as shutter and channel F as switch with the sub function “send status”. The channels G and H are selected as grouped with a shutter function: Figure 4: Communication objects per channel 10

only at the plus variant There are communication objects for the logic function at every push button additional to the communication objects per channel. These objects can be parameterized and shown independent from the parameterization of the channels. The logic objects have the numbers from 80 at a 16‐fold push button and the numbers from 40 at an 8‐fold push button. The first logic block gets assigned the first three numbers, so at an 8‐fold push button from 40 to 42. Every following block increases the numbers by 3. The addressing can be made by using the communication objects for the logic analogous to the addressing by the channels. The following communication objects for the logic can be shown: Figure 5: communication objects logic If a logic block is disabled, no communication objects will be shown. Therefore no addressing is possible. Every push button contains of 4 logic blocks for which the following objects can be shown: Nr.

1. All push buttons have a fixed debouncing time, which cannot be changed by the user. The debounce time is adjusted in‐plant to the push buttons. 1. The parameter “Time for keystroke long” allocates a static value to the push button from when a long keystroke is recognized. This parameter is important for functions, which have different functions for a long and a short keystroke. 2. The parameter “Behavior at bus power up” defines the behavior of the push button at a bus power return. The setting “Read value for toggle” effects that all communication objects “value for toggle” are read. So the push button knows the current status of the objects. If you choose the setting “no read value for toggle”, the push button will not know the current status of the actor. So the push button assumes an unconfirmed value for the objects “value for toggle” and sends always a “0”‐signal at the next operation. Only now the push button knows the status of the actor and can send the right values. But if you choose the read of these values at a bus power up, the push button will send immediately the right value for toggling. 16

4.3.1Blockingobject
As well for grouped channels as for unique channels the blocking object can be activated. At the unique channels one blocking object for every channel can be activated. For grouped channels, you can activate one blocking object for both channels. The communication object for a channel appears as soon as it is activated for a channel. So there are up to 8 blocking objects parameterize able at a 8‐
fold push button. The corresponding channel of the blocking object is blocked by sending a logical 1. A blocked channel is not controllable as long as it is blocked. By sending a logical 0, the channel can be unblocked again. Number 4 Name Blocking object Length

The grouped function is called dual surface, like dual surface dimming, and dual surface shutter. In contrast to the single surface functions, one action can be performed independent form the other one. One input performs always one function. The assignment for the buttons can be made individually, so it is possible to configure which button should for example drive the shutters up and which down. 18

4.4.1Dimming
The dual surface dimming function (channels grouped) is for controlling dimming actuators by start‐
stop dimming commands. The following parameters are visible, when a pair of channels is chosen as dimming‐function: Figure 9: Parameter dual surface dimming Number 0 Name Dimming on/off Length
1 Bit 1 Dimming 4 Bit Usage
Switching function of the dimming process; action for a short keystroke Dimming function; action for a long keystroke Table 10: Communication objects dual surface dimming When a pair of channels is parameterized as dimming function, two objects are shown. One object reacts to a short keystroke, the switching object “Dimming on/off”, and the other object reacts to a long keystroke, the dimming object “dimming”. It is possible to parameterize this function as brighter/darker or as darker/brighter. The first function belongs always to the first button. If you switch this parameter, the function will be switched automatically. By choosing the dimming function (channel A/B) as brighter/darker, the function reacts in this way: A short keystroke at button A switches the lights on. The lights are switched off by a short keystroke at button B. A long keystroke dims the lights step by step until releasing the long keystroke. The lights are dimmed brighter at button A and darker at button B. The push button starts always with the last brightness level, before switching off. The step size is set fixed to 100% at the dual surface dimming. It is a start‐stop dimming. that means the lights are dimmed as long as you hold the button. After releasing the button a stop value is sent, which stops the dimming process. So you can dim the lights with only one keystroke from 0% to 100% or from 100% to 0%, by pushing the button long enough. 19

Driving function for the shutters, action for a long keystroke Stop/Adjustment of the blinds, action for a short keystroke Table 12: Communication objects Two‐button shutter function If you choose a pair of channels as shutter function, two communication objects will appear for this pair of channel. On the one hand the stop/blind adjustment object called “Stop/Blinds Open/Close”, which responds to a short keystroke and on the other hand the driving object called “Shutter Down/Up”, which responds to a long keystroke. The driving object is for moving the shutters up and down. The stop‐/blind adjustment object is for the adjustment of the blinds and additional it stops a running movement of the shutter. Every shutter actuator controls with a 0‐signal the up‐movement and with a 1‐signal the down movement. So the push button sends these signals to the corresponding driving commands. From hardware version 2.0 (have a look at the print of the side of the device: RX.X), it is additional possible to switch the functions for a long and a short keystroke. So it can be chosen whether he shutter/blinds shall be driven via a long or a short keystroke. The Stop‐/Blind adjustment object is adjusted by the other operating concept.

4.4.3Switch
The values for on and off can be assigned freely at the switching function for the grouped channels. If you adjust a pair of channel as switch, the following parameters will be shown: Figure 11: Two‐button switching function Simple functions, like an alternating circuit, can be programmed easily by using the grouped switch function. The 1 bit communication object sends in dependence of the parameterization a 0‐ or a 1‐
signal for the first button and the inverted signal for the second channel. So you can chose which channel should switch off and which should switch on. The following chart shows the corresponding communication object: Number 0 Name Switch On/Off Length

4.5Parameterschannelsunique
There are 6 different operating modes for the unique channels, which can be adjusted for each channel:  Inactive  Switch  Scene  Switch short/long  One button dimming  One button shutter After the assignment of the operating mode the further parameterization can be done. If the channel is selected as inactive, no further parameterization will be possible. 4.5.1Switch
The switching function is for switching the corresponding output on, off and toggling it. There is a multitude of sub‐functions at the switching function, which enables the user to evaluate edges and integrate times to the switching process. The following parameters are shown, when the channel is selected as switch: Figure 12: Parameter switch Various sub‐functions are available at a switching output. Most of these sub‐functions contain also of further parameterization‐options. The different sub‐functions as well as their parameterization‐

You can parameterize whether a 0‐signal or a 1‐signal should be sent. There is no inverted signal at subsiding the edge. This function always sends only one adjusted signal. The following diagram shows this sub‐function for rising edges.

4.5.1.2Togglerising/fallingedge
The sub‐function “toggle rising edge“ or “toggle falling edge” toggles at the adjusted edge. That means, the current value of the communication object is inverted at every switching process. By using this function an edge based alternating circuit can be realized. The following diagram describes this sub‐function. As soon as the state changes from 1 to 0, the push button sends the inverted signal. The signal is send always as a short pulse: The following chart shows the corresponding communication objects: Number 0 Name Switch Length

To be sure that the push button toggles at every switching process, you have to connect the status object of the push button “Value for toggle” with the status object of the actuator. When the push button should work without an actuator, the object has to be connected to the switching object “switch”. The connection is important, because the push button cannot invert the signal, when it does not know its current state. By undocking this communication object, you have more choices to program the push button. So you can use the object “Value for toggle” for visualizations or additional functions and you will be more free in design your project. So you have for example the option to visualize the switching process by connecting the status‐object to a switching object of a LED or something else. 26

The parameter “Value for rising edge“ defines whether the channel should send an 1‐signal (value: On) or a 0‐signal (value: Off). If you want for example switch a channel of a switch actuator, you will have to choose different values for the rising and the falling edge. Otherwise the push button sends the same signal twice, for example an On‐signal. The cyclic sending causes that the state of the push button is sent periodically in certain parameterize able intervals. Then the push button sends the parameterized value for the corresponding edge. A common application for this parameter is for example the observation of windows, which are equipped with window‐contacts. So a display can for example show whether all windows are closed or not. Furthermore an alarm device can operate with this function. The following diagram describes this sub‐function. In this example, the push button sends a 1‐signal for a falling edge and a 0‐signal for a rising edge. Additional the diagram shows the connection with a switch actuator, which was parameterized with a normal switching function: 28

For example a presence detector, would be switched permanent off. Detected motions have no influence on the output.  Forced setting on (control=1, value=1) The forced setting object switches the receiver unconditionally on.

At the on‐delay, the time starts when the associated button was switched on and at the off‐delay, the time starts when the associated button was switched off. The push button sends always its current value at this function. If the value changes before the time ran out, the on‐
delay will expire. For example, when an input with a parameterized on‐delay is switched off, before it was switched on, the input remains off. The following diagram describes the sub‐function „Send value with on‐delay“: 31

The parameter “switch short/long” can control for example two channels of an actuator by using only one button. Furthermore you can switch a channel with a long keystroke on and with a short keystroke off. For both objects, a function can be set individually. Therefore the sub‐functions on, off, toggle and nothing are available. Two communication objects are displayed, which can be connected in any way. By activating the sub‐function “toggle” an additional communication object appears, called “value for toggling”. This object is a status object for the push button and must be connected to the status‐object of the actuator (have a look at: 4.5.1 Toggle) The following diagram shows the behavior of this parameter. Both objects (push‐button and push‐
button long) were set to toggle. The object for the long keystroke is connected to channel A of the switch actuator and the object for the short keystroke is connected to channel B: In this example the push button toggles Channel B with a short keystroke. The Channel A does not react to a short keystroke. This one reacts only at a long keystroke with toggling. 36

The following diagram shows a further application example for this parameter. In this example, the object for a long keystroke switches the channel A of a switch actuator on. A short keystroke switches the channel off. The three communication objects were connected in only one group address: If the sub function “Send value” is selected, the following additional settings appear: Sub‐function Dynamic range comment [default value] Value for keystroke short/long Send value chosen sub‐function: Send value Send value  1 Byte‐Value [0...255] Selection of the value, which shall be sent  Scene number 1 Byte‐Value [0…255] 0‐255 Selection of the byte value, which [0] shall be sent if byte value is chosen Scene number 1‐64 Selection of the scene number, [1] which shall be sent if scene number is chosen Table 31: Sub function Send value at switch short/long Any value can be sent for the sub function „Send value“ at a short/long keystroke. As well scenes can be called as any byte value can be sent. So it is for example possible to call different scenes for a long and a short keystroke or sending absolute height/brightness commands. 37

Switching function for the dimming process; action for the short keystroke dimming function; action for a long keystroke status object, must be connected with the status function of the actuator for getting feedback of the current switching process Table 33: Communication objects one‐button dimming At the one‐button dimming, the dimming process is executed by one single channel. So it is possible to dim the lights via only one button. By a long keystroke the communication “Dimming” is called, which is responsible for the dimming process and by a short keystroke the object “Dimming on/off” is called which is responsible for the switching. The dimming direction is toggled by every keystroke, so if you have dimmed darker, the next time will be dimmed brighter and vice versa. The one‐button dimmeing is a start stop dimming, that means when the dimming function is active a darker or brighter command is sent until the button is released again. After releasing the button a stop command is sent, which stops the dimming process. The dimming step is set fixed to 100%. So with only one button activation the lights can be dimmed from 0% to 100% or from 100% to 0%. 38

The communication object “Shutter” is addressed by a long keystroke and performs the up‐ and down‐movement of the shutter. The direction of movement depends to the last direction of movement. If the shutter were driven up at the last time, they will be driven down at the next time. So the direction of movement changes after every movement. The communication object “Blinds/Stop” is addressed by a short keystroke. Addressing this object stops a running movement of the shutter. Furthermore it will adjust the blinds if a shutter function is selected for this channel. The direction of the adjustment changes also here after every movement in the same way like the up/down moving of the shutter. From hardware version 2.0 (have a look at the print oft eh side of the device: R:X.X), it is possible to switch the functions for the short and the long keystroke. So it can be chosen whether a short or a long keystroke shall drive the shutter/blinds. The Stop‐/ Adjustment object gets the other operating concept. The object “Value for change of direction” serves as state object. It must be connected to the direction object of the actuator. So the button sends always the complementary value as before. 39

4.6.1Logicobjecttypescene
This logic function calls scenes, when the logic function is satisfied. The chart shows the possible sub‐functions for the logic operation scene: Sub‐function Dynamic range comment [default value] Scene number 1‐64 Scene number must be the same like the [2] one you want to call with the logic‐function Table 40: Logic sub‐function scene The logic function for the scenes works like a normal logic function. As soon as the logic function is satisfied, the communication object will send the adjusted scene‐number. The communication object has the length of 1 Byte, so that it can be connected to other communication objects of scenes. All sub‐functions, like in a normal logic function can be parameterized. So you can set the logic function as an AND‐ or an OR‐function and connect all inputs of the push button and additional 2 external logic objects to the logic function. 44

Table 41: Dynamic range LEDs per button The parameter “LED (1‐8) reacts to” can be adjusted when the LED should switch on or toggled. This 4 setting options are available and cause the following operations:  no function The LED is switched off and cannot be controlled. So there are no following parameterization options for this LED.  external object If the LED should react to an external object, a communication object will be shown for this LED. The communication object can be connected to any group address afterwards. So the LED can also show a switching process of an actor, which is independent from the push button. The chart shows the according communication object: Number Name LED 1‐2/4/6/8 Length

internal object The LED can react to every internal communication object. Internal communication objects are called the objects of the push button. If this function is activated, the following window will appear: Figure 25: Configuration internal connection LED 
Because there is already a fixed connection between the LED and a communication object, now further communication object is necessary. The LED can be connected to every object independent from the size of the object. button activation By choosing this action, the LED reacts to every activation of the associated button. The action how the LED should react to an activated/inactivated button can be parameterized individual by the function LED characterization. The value for “on” will be send when the button is activated and the value for “off” when it is not activated. Further can be set for the LED when they should switch the green light on/off and when the right light on/off. This behavior can be adjusted by the parameter “LED characterization”. The dynamic range is shown in the chart 33 (former side). Thereby the first value stands for the switched state and the second for the deactivated state. Additional the luminescent behavior can be set of every LED individual by the parameter “State of green/red LED at ON”. Every LED can shine permanent or flashing. 48

4.7.2OrientationLED/light
The push button contains additional to the LEDs per button of one LED orientation light. This orientation light can serve as an orientation light or being controlled by an external object. The orientation light shines standardly green. The following illustration shows the setting option for this paramter: Figure 26: Configuration LED orientation light The following chart shows the dynamic range of this parameter: Sub‐function Dynamic range [default value] LED orientation light  OFF  ON  over ext. object 0=OFF, 1=ON  over ext. object 0=ON, 1=OFF comment Adjustment of the controlling and luminescent behavior of the orientation light Table 43: Dynamic range LED orientation light Four choices are available for the controlling of the orientation light. Firstly the LED can be switched permanent off. So the LED is deactivated and has no further functions. If the LED should be used as orientation light, the setting ON switches the LED permanent on. Furthermore the orientation LED can be controlled by an external object. For this setting can be additional adjusted at which signal the LED should switch on. By activation the controlling by an external object, an additional communication object will be shown. This communication object can be controlled of any device.

4.7.3BlockingobjectforLEDs
Analogous to the blocking objects for the channels, a blocking object for the LEDs can be shown. This blocking object blocks all LEDs, when it is triggered. The following illustration shows the setting options for this parameter: Figure 27: Blocking object LEDs The following chart shows the dynamic range of this parameter: Sub‐function Dynamic range [default value] Activate blocking object for  No LEDs  Yes comment Activation of the blocking object for the LEDs Table 45: Dynamic range blocking object LEDs In difference to the blocking objects per channel, there is only one blocking object for the LEDs, which blocks all LEDs. When the LED blocking object is triggered, that means the blocking object becomes a logical “1”, all LEDs are blocked and cannot be controlled while the blocking function is active. The LEDs, which were switched on before the blocking process, are switched off. By sending a logical “0”, the blocking process is deactivated. Now it is possible to control the LEDs as usual.
