General information about
the FIBARO System
FIBARO is a wireless smart home automation system, based on the
Z-Wave protocol. All of available devices can be controlled through
a computer (PC or Mac), smartphone or tablet. Devices are not only
receivers, but can also repeat the signal, increasing the Z-Wave
network’s range. It gives advantage over traditional wireless systems
that require direct link between transmitter and receiver, as a result the
construction of the building could affect network’s range negatively.
Every FIBARO network has its unique identification number (home
ID). Multiple independent networks can exist in the building without
interfering. Transmission security of FIBARO System is comparable to
wired systems.
Z-Wave technology is the leading solution in smart home automation.
There is a wide range of Z-Wave devices that are mutually
compatible, independently of manufacturer. It gives the system the
ability to evolve and expand over time. For more information visit:

Operating the device
15
#7: Calibration
Dimmer 2 is equipped with an algorithm of smart light source detection. Depending on the connected type of light source, it automatically adjusts an optimal control mode (leading edge for inductive
loads, trailing edge for capacitive or resistive loads). The procedure of
learning the light source type is called calibration.
Calibration automatically adjusts maximum and minimum light levels
(parameter 1 and 2). However, the installer is obliged to verify the
proper operation of the device, according to control modes description. There is a 10% probability that calibration settings will require a
manual correction. In a 2-wire connection for loads other than resistive parameter 1 settings must be adjusted manually.
Calibration procedure is performed always after removing the device
from the Z-Wave network. If the device is not included, after each
power on/off calibration will occur. For the included device, calibration is performed in accordance with the parameter 35 settings.
Calibration may be forced:
•
by setting parameter 13 to 1 or 2 (with/without FIBARO Bypass 2)
•
through triple clicking and holding the main light switch (each
hold for more than 5 seconds)
•
by selecting the appropriate MENU option using the B-button
(see „Operating the device” on page 12).
By default, calibration is performed without FIBARO Bypass 2. In case
of connecting the Bypass 2, it is required to force the appropriate
calibration procedure using B-button menu or through parameter
13. The device saves the last calibration enforcement mode (with or
without Bypass 2).
The result of calibration will be confirmed with the LED indicator
glowing in one of the following colours:
GREEN - Light source recognized as dimmable, dimming levels set,
brightness may be controlled using the S1 switch.
YELLOW - Light source recognized as non-dimmable, possibility to
turn ON/OFF connected light with default parameters settings.
RED - Calibration procedure failed. Possible reasons: lack of connected load or connected light source exceeds maximum power, which
may be controlled by the Dimmer 2.
BLINKING RED - Calibration procedure failed. Possible reasons: installation failure or damaged load (causing activation of the overcurrent protection).
!
CAUTION
Some types of LED
and CF lamps are designed to operate in
leading edge mode
(with
conventional
dimmers). Information
about proper operation mode of the bulb
should be included in
its manual. In this case
you have to manually
force the desired operating mode using
parameter 30.
!
CAUTION
After changing the
load launch the calibration or remove and
add the device. Before
changing the operating mode or performing the calibration procedure the light must
be turned off. Verify
the operating mode,
according to product
documentation.
!
CAUTION
During the calibration
procedure, radio connection is disabled and
the Dimmer 2 does not
respond to any commands. It may cause
temporary problems
with communication
in the Z-Wave network.
After completing the
calibration, communication with the module will be restored.

#8: Power and energy
consumption
!
CAUTION
FIBARO Dimmer 2 in
the 3-wire connection
has the power and
energy measurement
function. In case of the
2-wire connection this
function is available
only for load of cosφ
≥ 0.99. In other cases
power is estimated
and can differ from actual power consumed
by the device.
FIBARO Dimmer 2 allows for the active power and energy consumption monitoring. Data is sent to the main Z-Wave controller, e.g. Home
Center. Measuring is carried out by the most advanced micro-controller technology, assuring maximum accuracy and precision.
Electric active power - power that energy receiver is changing into a
work or a heat. The unit of active power is Watt [W].
Electric energy - energy consumed by a device through a time
period. Consumers of electricity in households are billed by suppliers on the basis of active power used in given unit of time. Most
commonly measured in kilowatt-hour [kWh]. One kilowatt-hour is
equal to one kilowatt of power consumed over period of one hour,
1kWh = 1000Wh.
Resetting consumption memory:
!
CAUTION
FIBARO Dimmer 2
stores
periodically
(every 5 minutes) the
consumption
data
in the device memory.
Disconnecting
the module from the
power supply will not
erase the energy consumption data.
Dimmer 2 allows to erase stored consumption data in three ways:
a)By resetting the device (see „Operating the device” on page 12).
b)Using functionality of a Z-Wave controller (see the controller’smanual).
c)Manually clearing the data using the following procedure:
1. Make sure that the device is connected to the power supply
2. Press and hold the B-button for a few seconds, until LED indicator glows GREEN
3. Release the B-button.
4. Press the B-button briefly
5. Energy consumption memory has been erased
i
NOTE
Power measurement
in the 2-wire connection does not include
mains voltage fluctuations within +/- 10%.
* Measurements in this
case are only illustrative, returned values
may differ from the
actual measurement.
In the case of reporting incorrect values
change the values of
parameters 58 and 59.

#9: Associations
Association (linking devices) - direct control of other devices within
the Z-Wave system network using the wall switch connected to the
Dimmer 2.
The association enables the Dimmer 2 to control directly a device
included in Z-Wave network e.g. other Dimmer, Relay Switch, Roller
Shutter or scene (may be controlled only through a Z-Wave controller).
The Dimmer 2 provides the association of five groups:
1st Association Group „Lifeline” reports state of the device. Main
Z-Wave+ network controller should be added to this group. The „Lifeline” group can handle only one device. It is not recommended to
modify this group.
2nd Association Group „On/Off (S1)” is assigned to switch no. 1.
Sends BASIC command class frame according to the state of the device.
3rd Association Group „Dimmer (S1)” is assigned to switch no. 1.
Sends MULTILEVEL SWITCH command class frame. Allows sending
dim/brighten command to associated devices.
4th Association Group „On/Off (S2)” is assigned to switch no. 2.
Sends BASIC command class frame according to the state of the device.
i
NOTE
Association ensures
direct transfer of
control
commands
between devices, is
performed
without
participation of the
main controller and
requires
associated
device to be in the direct range.
i
NOTE
Dimmer 2 supports
the operation of multichannel
devices.
Multichannel devices
are devices that include two or more circuits inside one physical unit.
5th Association Group „Dimmer (S2)” is assigned to switch no. 2.
Sends MULTILEVEL SWITCH command class frame. Allows sending
dim/brighten command to associated devices.
Dimmer 2 in 2nd to 5th group allows to control 8 regular or multichannel devices per an association group, with the exception of “LifeLine”
that is reserved solely for the Z-Wave controller and hence only 1 node
can be assigned.
It is not recommended to associate more than 10 devices in general,
as the response time to control commands depends on the number of
associated devices. In extreme cases, system response may be delayed.
To add an association (using the Home Center controller):
1. Go to device options by clicking the icon:
2. Select the „Advanced” tab
3. Specify to which group and what devices are to be associated
4. Wait for the configuration process to end. Sending relevant information to devices added to associated groups may take even a
few minutes

indicator pulsing yellow.
Visual indicator glowing green - Dimmer 2 communicates with the
main controller directly.
Visual indicator pulsing yellow - Dimmer 2 tries to establish a routed communication with the main controller through other modules
(repeaters).
Visual indicator glowing yellow - Dimmer 2 communicates with
the main controller through the other modules. After 2 seconds the
device will retry to establish a direct communication with the main
controller, which will be signalled with visual indicator pulsing green.
Visual indicator pulsing violet - Dimmer 2 does communicate at the
maximum distance of the Z-Wave network. If connection proves successful it will be confirmed with a yellow glow. It’s not recommended
to use the device at the range limit.
Visual indicator glowing red - Dimmer 2 is not able to connect to
the main controller directly or through another Z-Wave network device (repeater).

NOTE
Pressing any of the
connected switches or
changing state of the
device using the controller will exit error
mode.
Error messages:
A) OVERTEMPERATURE ERROR
Dimmer 2 features self-temperature measurement function. In case
of reaching critical temperature, the load is turned off and the gateway receives an information about exceeding maximum temperature
of the module.
B) LOAD ERROR
Dimmer 2 is equipped with functionality of detecting the burnt out
bulb. In case of such situation, Dimmer 2 sends the notification about
load failure. Described function is not available for values of parameter 58 different than 0.
Power variation is detected in accordance with the settings of parameters 15 and 16.
Example:
Parameter 15 set to 30%.
i
NOTE
If parameter 35 is set
to 3 or 4, the load will
be calibrated again after turning on the load
or an occurrence of
LOAD ERROR, SURGE
or OVERCURRENT error.
Parameter 16 set to 5 seconds.
Dimmer 2 will detect the change of load at the moment of power
variation by 30% compared to standard power consumption (measured during the calibration) and after 5 seconds from brightness level
stabilization.
This function is available only in a control mode compliant with the
mode recognized during the calibration (parameter 14 set to 1).
Appearing of an error may be the result of not connecting the load. It
may suggest burning out all of the loads connected to the Dimmer 2.
Damaged load should be immediately replaced. After connecting the
new load, FIBARO Dimmer 2 will return to normal operation.
C) SURGE ERROR
Appearing of an error may be the result of electrical surges, incorrect
load control (inductive load controlled in trailing edge mode) or connecting the prohibited type of load.
Error modes
20
D) OVERCURRENT ERROR
Appearing of an error may also be the result of rapid powering on
the load. It may also occur if the soft-start functionality is disabled
(parameter 34 set to 0) or as a result of the short circuit.
If parameter 37 is set to 1, the device will automatically try to turn on
again.
I f described error has been caused by the rapid powering on the load,
then FIBARO Dimmer 2 will return to normal operation after reenabling.
After three unsuccessful automatic tries of turning on the load, Dimmer 2 will stay in OVERCURRENT error mode (module turned off ). In
such situation, it is required to remove the failure (possible short circuit in the installation.) Otherwise, it is recommended to set the long
soft-start (parameter 34 set to 2).
E) OVERLOAD ERROR
Appearing of an error is a result of connecting receivers with too
much power consumption. In this case FIBARO Dimmer 2 will automatically turn off the lighting.
It is required to reduce power consumption of connected load (e.g. by
reducing the number of receivers) and turn on the light source again
by the wall switch or a Z-Wave command.
F) VOLTAGE DROP ERROR
Appearing of an error in a 2-wire connection may be the result of
mains voltage drop or a too high brightness level of the light source.
If parameter 37 is set to 1, the device will automatically try to turn on
again.
Voltage drop error suggests that parameter 2 value should be reduced until disappearing of the failure. You can also recalibrate the
load using parameter 13.
After three unsuccessful automatic tries of turning on the load, Dimmer 2 will stay in VOLTAGE DROP error mode (module turned off ).
G) HARDWARE FAIL ERROR
Appearing of an error may be a result of serious hardware failure of
the Dimmer 2. In this case the Dimmer 2 sets the maximum brightness
level and the LED visual indicator starts blinking in red. All external
actions (Z-Wave commands, pressing the switches, menu settings)
will be ignored.
We recommend disconnecting the device from the power supply
and contacting the customer service or to initiate the guarantee
procedure.
This error may also appear as a result of enabling the Dimmer 2
without load connected to the output in 3-wire connection. It is not a
dangerous situation. We recommend disabling the fuse, connecting
the load and enabling the fuse again.

#12: Additional functionality
Software update
Dimmer 2 features remote software update (initiated by the main
controller). Update status is signalled by the LED indicator with cyan
colour:
• slow blinking - transferring data via Z-Wave and saving to the
flash memory
• fast blinking - copying data from the external memory to the
memory of the microcontroller
Operating alarm data frames
FIBARO System allows user to set response of devices to alarm situations (response to data-frames ALARM_REPORT and SENSOR_ALARM_
REPORT). Dimmer 2 responds to the following types of alarms:
•
General Purpose Alarm - GENERAL PURPOSE ALARM
•
Smoke Alarm - ALARM CO2, ALARM CO, ALARM SMOKE
•
Water Flooding Alarm - ALARM WATER
•
Temperature Alarm - ALARM HEAT
Alarm data-frames are sent by devices that are system sensors (e.g.,
flood sensors, smoke detectors, motion detectors, etc.).
The device may respond in the following manner to received data-frames (settings are configured in configuration parameters, see
„Advanced parameters” on page 22):
0 - DEACTIVATION - the device does not respond to alarm data frames
1 - DIMMER 2 ON - the device turns on after detecting an alarm
2 - DIMMER 2 OFF - the device turns off after detecting an alarm
3 - ALARM FLASHING - the device periodically changes its status to
the opposite when it detects an alarm (lights on/off alternately)
