The pushbutton coupler with centre setting opens the
entire diversity of the KNX switch range.
Rocker switches from all switch ranges can now be
converted to a KNX push button with a simple push-on,
and can not only switch on and off but also dim or show
the status with an LED (6108/01-500 and 6108/05-500

KNX – water protected (6108/04-500 and 6108/05-500)
The use of the pushbutton coupler also makes special
products usable for KNX. Special models for waterprotected installation allow covers from, for example, the
®
ocean flush-mounted range to be used. This makes the
KNX sensory system also suitable for use in the cellar, on
the terrace or in the commercial sector.
Temperature range: –25 °C to +45 °C.

Symbols
Standby: Standby mode lowers the
temperature below the value of
comfort mode. This saves energy
and does not cool down the room
even during an extended absence.
Comfort: Comfort mode regulates
the temperature to suit the
occupants while present. It can be
called up time-controlled or via a
telegram.
Dew point: If an appropriate
telegram is received from a dew
point sensor, the room thermostat
will display the corresponding
symbol and cease cooling and
merely protect against the heat.
Alarm: The alarm can be freely
parameterized. For example, it can
occur when an external temperature
sensor no longer sends values.
On/Off: The room thermostat can be
turned on and off. When turned off,
this icon is shown in the display. The
divice operates in frost protection
mode.
Night setback: The temperature
can be reduced during the night.
This saves energy and makes the
night's rest comfortable. The heating
starts again automatically the next
morning to reach a comfortable
temperature for rising.
Frost protection: If parameterized,
frost protection will ensure that the
temperature does not drop below
the desired value. It is the lowest
setpoint.
Heat protection: If parameterized,
heat protection will ensure that the
temperature does not exceed the
desired value. It is the highest
setpoint.
Condensate: The operation of a fan
coil may cause condensate water,
which is collected in a container. If
the fan coil sends out a telegram
when the container is full, the
symbol for condensate mode is
displayed. The room thermostat
immediately switches into heat
protection mode.

Planner support for RTC
9.1
Operating modes
The room thermostat has four operating modes:
•
Frost protection mode (for heating): The room temperature control is inactive; heating is only carried out when the
temperature in the room drops to the point where the heating system could sustain damage through freezing.
Heat protection mode (for cooling): The room temperature control is inactive; cooling is only carried out when the
temperature has risen to the point where the heat in the room becomes unbearable.
•
Comfort mode (for heating and cooling): The setpoint for the room temperature is set to a value that makes the
temperature of the room comfortable during "normal use".
•
Standby mode (for heating): The room temperature is reduced to the point where heating costs are saved (e.g. during
temporary absence), but can be quickly raised to comfort temperature again.
Standby mode (for cooling): The room temperature is only raised to the point where energy costs are saved (e.g. during
temporary absence), but can be quickly increased to comfort temperature again.
•
Night mode (for heating and cooling): Rooms are not used for longer periods during the night hours; the room
temperature is set a comfortable night-time value and can be quickly raised again to the comfort setpoint in the morning.
A switchover between these operating modes can take place either by means of a switching telegram (parameter "Operating
mode switchover": "1 bit (3x)") or with 1-byte value telegrams (parameter "Operating mode switchover": "1 byte (2x)").
9.1.1
Operating mode switchover, 1 bit
Frost/heat protection has the highest priority; i.e., switchover to a different mode cannot take place in this case. The
frost/heat protection must first be deactivated; by closing an open window, for example. Night mode has the next highest
priority, followed by comfort mode. If none of these three operating modes are active, the room thermostat is in standby
mode.
9.1.2
Operating mode switchover, 1 byte
Two 1-byte communication objects are made available with operation mode switchover via 1 byte.
The two 1-byte communication objects have different behaviours for receipt of telegram. One object evaluates received
telegrams as "normal". This means, for example, if a comfort telegram is received, the room thermostat switches to comfort
mode. If a night telegram is received, the room thermostat switches to night mode. This object is controlled, for example, by
time switches.
The second object ("Operating mode switchover OMO") can "overwrite" the first. This means, for example, if a frost/heat
protection telegram is received, the room thermostat switches to frost or heat protection mode. If frost or heat protection is
reset after receipt of a new telegram, the room thermostat activates the mode that is pending on the "normal" object. As a
result, it is capable of memorising operating modes. This object is controlled, for example, by binary inputs that record
information from window contacts.
The following conditions apply for both 1-byte communication objects:
0 = Auto (only for "Operating mode switchover OMO“)
1 = Comfort
2 = Standby
3 = Night
4 = Frost/Heat protection
5 – 255 = not allowed
14 | 0073-1-7704 | KNX Technical Reference Manual
9.2
Temperature measurement
The room thermostat with display can record the temperature via an internal sensor. Additionally, values can be received
from an external sensor or an external temperature sensor via communication objects. The incoming values can be
monitored and, if necessary, adjusted. The functions are explained in greater detail in the following.
9.2.1
Internal temperature sensor
The device has an integrated temperature sensor. The measured value enters the control as actual value. The value can
also be shown on the display.
In addition, the measured temperature can be transferred to the bus via the 2-byte communication object "Send actual value
- temperature sensor", to be shown on the display, for example. Sending takes place in dependence of parameters "Send
actual value for change greater than" and "Send actual value cyclically". By default, both parameters are deactivated. This
means that at least one setting must be activated if the actual temperature is to be sent.
The setting "Send actual value for change greater than" has the advantage of being able to transmit the smallest change in
the measured temperature, adjustable from 0.1 k to 1.0 K, to the bus. The disadvantage is, for example, that at a setting of
0.1 K and a lot of room thermostats within an installation, the load on the bus increases.
The parameter "Send actual value cyclically" has the advantage that the current actual value is sent out continuously, even
when the measured value does not change. The disadvantage is that rapid changes may not be registered because the
cycle time selected is too large. It should also not be small because of the extreme load the bus is subjected to.
9.2.2
External temperature sensor
In open-plan offices it can be difficult to control the temperature with only a single thermostat. That is why it would be
advantageous to divide the room into zones with an additional room thermostat.
To integrate the temperature value of the additional temperature sensor into the temperature control, the parameter "Room
temperature measurement" must be set on "Internal and external". The the temperature measured inside and outside can
then be additionally weighted. The setting for weighting depend on the local circumstances. If the room thermostat and the
additional measuring sensor are positioned equal distances from the heater, in the case of panel heaters, a 50% / 50%
setting should provide good control results.
9.3
Monitoring
The "Temperature measurement monitoring" parameter specifies whether the external temperature sensor and the outside
temperature are to be monitored. This means that the room thermostat has to receive at least one telegram with the current
temperature on the associated communication object within an adjustable time ("Monitoring time of external temperature"
and "Monitoring time of outside temperature").
If no telegram is received during monitoring time, the room thermostat assumes that the measuring sensor for the outside
temperature or external temperature is defective or no longer connected to the bus.
The room thermostat will then terminate its control and send a predefined control value ("Control value during temperature
measurement error") so that the room to be controlled does not overheat or cool down. This control value is sent out until the
room thermostat again receives a temperature telegram via the bus and reactivates the control.
KNX Technical Reference Manual | 0073-1-7704 | 15
KNX Technical Reference Manual
ABB i-bus® KNX
9.3.1
Adjustment
If the measured temperature is distorted, such as by the inherent heat of the bus coupler, an "Offset room temperature
measurement" can be set.
If additional external temperature recording has been activated and the measured value becomes distorted through the
influence of cold or heat, here, too, an offset can be entered.
9.4
Controller
The room thermostat can be used exclusively for heating, exclusively for cooling or for heating and cooling.
If the room thermostat is to heat or cool, the switchover from heating to cooling or cooling to heating can occur automatically
by means of the room thermostat. The controller detects automatically whether a control value for heating or cooling is to be
sent out. If the automatic switchover is not required, the switchover between heating and cooling can take place by means of
an external, central control via the 1-bit object "Switchover heating/cooling". In this setup, the heat and cooling icons are
continuously displayed in the respective mode. The object is enabled via parameter "Switchover between heating/cooling".
The control value for heating and/or cooling can be sent out on a common communication object "Heating/cooling control
value" or on two individual communication objects "Heating control value" and "Cooling control value". If a common object is
used, it may be necessary to inform the actuator whether the control value is for heating or cooling. For this, a 1-bit
communication object "Switchover heating/cooling" can be enabled via parameter "Switchover between heating and cooling"
with setting "Automatic and sending". For activation of heating operating mode a "1" is sent to the bus, for activation of
cooling mode a "0".
A common communication object for heating and cooling is required to activate two two-pipe systems, i.e., the same pipeline
is used for heating and cooling. Two single communication objects are used for four-pipe systems. Heating and cooling each
have their own pipeline system.
Parameter "Number of output channels" specifies whether an object ("1 channel (two-pipe system) for heating and cooling")
or two objects ("2 channels (four-pipe system) for heating and cooling") are to be displayed.
Separate control types can be configured each for heating and cooling. One of the following control types can be selected:
•
2-point
•
PWM
•
Continuous
•
Fan coil
The individual control types are described in greater detail in the following.
16 | 0073-1-7704 | KNX Technical Reference Manual
9.4.1
2-point controller
A 2-point controller has two output states that alternate in dependence of the actual value. If the actual value is above the
parameterised setpoint, control value "0" is sent on the bus. If the actual value is below the parameterised setpoint, control
value "1" is sent.
A 2-point controller should be used when the control value is to alternate only between the two states ON and OFF, such as
an electrothermal valve that is connected to a switch actuator, for example. A 2-point controller can quickly correct control
variations in case of large changes in the control variable, but never comes to rest.
To avoid rapid oscillations of the output states, the 2-point controllers always have a built-in hysteresis that varies around
the setpoint. The hysteresis can have different size parameters. For example, if the setpoint during heating mode is 21 °C
and the hysteresis is 1.0 K, the controller switches on when the value falls below 20.5 °C and switches off again when
exceeding 21.5 °C. The "Hyteresis" parameter to be set, on the one hand responds to how quickly the heating can heat the
room or how quickly the air-conditioning cools the room, and on the other hand to the desired temperature of the people in
the room. The hysteresis should not be set too small, otherwise the switching actuator will constantly open and close. The
hysteresis should also not be set too large, otherwise the temperature fluctuations in the room will be too large.
9.4.2
Continuous controller
A continuous controller has a continuously changing control value which can accept values between 0 and 100%. For the
KNX this control value signal is converted to a 1-byte value, which means that control value 0% corresponds to value "0" and
control value 100% to value "255".
Continuous controllers with a 1-byte control value, for example, can be used to activate electromotive actuating drives. They
translate the value received directly into the valve position via an installed motor. This results in optimum control.
The 1-byte control value of a continuous controller can also be sent to KNX heating actuators which convert the 1-byte signal
into a PWM size. This allows electrothermal valves to be activated. Here it is practical to limit the dynamic range since
electrothermal valves require time to open and close. This takes place via parameters "Minimum control value" or "Maximum
control value". If, for example, a maximum control value of 80% is specified, the control will always automatically send the
value 255 when the control value of 204 has been exceeded.
To protect the bus from unnecessary loads the change of the control value that is permitted to be sent to the bus can be set.
The setting is in percent. The control value sent, unless it has changed, is specified by means of a cycle time. The cycle time
selected should not be too small (e.g. every 10 min.).
KNX Technical Reference Manual | 0073-1-7704 | 17
KNX Technical Reference Manual
ABB i-bus® KNX
9.4.3
PWM controller
The PWM controller has the same continuous control as the continuous controller. The difference is that with a PWM
controller the 1-byte control value (0...255) is converted into an On/OFF switching relationship (0 and 1). If, for example, a
control value of 70% is to be issued, at a pre-set cycle time of 10 minutes the switch-on time will be 7 minutes and the
switch-off time 3 minutes.
This transfers the advantages of the continuous control (control at the desired setpoint, no overshooting) to drives which are
designed only for On/Off switching signals, such as electrothermal drives.
To optimise the controlling characteristics of the heating/cooling system, the "PWM control value cycle time" can be set. To
set a practical cycle time, the type of heating or cooling as well as the actuating drive used should be taken into
consideration. The following recommendations can be used:
•
Electrothermal actuating drive
To fully open an electrothermal control valve takes approximately 2-3 minutes. That is why a cycle time of less than 15
minutes is not practical.
•
Floor heating
The time constant of floor heating is rather large. That is why a cycle time of 20 minutes is sufficient.
•
Hot water heating
Her electrothermal drives are generally used. A cycle time of 15 minutes will produce excellent control results.
•
Electro-convector heating
Cycle times of between 10 and 15 minutes are recommended, depending on the electric heating system and the spatial
circumstances.
9.4.4
Fan coil
With the selection of fan coil for "Control types" the control value output takes place in the same way as described under
Continuous control.
With 'fan coil' there is the additional option of activating fan stages via a 1-byte or three 1-bit communication objects.
The added connection of the fan stages heats or cools the room correspondingly faster.
Which fan stage is to be active at which control value is specified on a separate tab "Fan coil heating" or "Fan coil cooling".
Here it should be ensured that threshold value stage 1 must always be smaller than threshold value stage 2, which in turn
must be smaller than threshold value stage 3.
9.4.5
Control parameter for PWM controller and continuous controller (Fan coil)
For continuous control behaviour and for a switching PWM controller, the preset control parameters can be used via the
installation type of the heating or cooling system. If different control parameters are required, they should be set individually
via user parameterization. User parameterization should only be used by persons with adequate experience in control
technology.
The setting "User parameterization" can be used to set the "Proportional range (Xp)" and the "Readjust time (Tn". The
proportional range lies below and above the preset setpoint and determines the regulating speed. The readjust time amounts
to three times the delay time. The delay time is determined by the reversing tangent of the heating curve of the room. In
general, the more inactive the overall system, the larger the parameterization values should be.

9.4.6
Two-stage heating / cooling
In specific instances such as when using underfloor heating, it may be necessary to install a quick additional stage for the
heat control in order to warm up the room rapidly. When the room thermostat is preset to "Additional heating stage active", it
has a second heating system with switching control that regulates with the 1-byte values 0% and 100%.
The parameters "Distance of the additional stage" and "Hysteresis (one-sided)" enable you to specify when the additional
stage switches on and off. For instance, if the setpoint for the additional stage is 18 °C and the hysteresis is 0.5 K (onesided), the controller switches on at 18 °C and off again at 18.5 °C.
The settings for the additional heating stage apply equally to the additional cooling stage, the only difference being that in
the case of cooling, when a set temperature has been exceeded, an additional cooling stage is switched on to cool the room
faster.
Since several actuating drives close (opened de-energised) at a 1-bit value of "1" or a 1-byte value of "255" and open at "0",
the mode of the control value can be changed via "Invert control value".
9.5
Set values
The room thermostat can operate with dependent or individual set values. Both versions are explained in greater detail in the
following.
9.5.1
Dependent setpoints
In case of dependent setpoints there are two basic setpoints, one for heating ("Heating setpoint comfort operation" and one
for cooling ("Cooling setpoint comfort operation").
The settings "...lowering standby/night mode" or "...raising standby/night mode". This means, for example, when 21 °C has
been set for "Heating setpoint comfort mode" and 2 K was specified for "Lower heating setpoint standby", the heating
setpoint in standby mode is lowered by 2 K to 19 °C. If 4 K has been specified for "Lower heating setpoint standby", the
setpoint for "Heating setpoint for night mode" is 17 °C.
The dependence of the setpoints are also maintained after a manual setpoint shift. For example, when the user has effected
a setpoint shift of 1 K upward to 22 °C for the parameterized temperature "Heating setpoint comfort mode", this value will be
lowered by 2 K to 20 °C when comfort mode is activated. When night mode is called up, the value will be lowered by 4 K,
resulting in a setpoint of 18 °C.
The user can manually change the parameterized setpoints via the two buttons "Raise temperature" or "Lower temperature".
The change between "Heating setpoint comfort mode" and Cooling setpoint comfort mode" is made via a long press (approx.
1 sec.) of button "Raise temperature" to heating setpoint and on button "Lower temperature" to cooling setpoint.
The two specified setpoints for heating and cooling can also be changed as often as desired via the bus without the ETS.
Here a 2-byte temperature value must be sent to the communication object "Base setpoint - control". Depending on whether
heating or cooling is currently active, the value is stored as "Heating setpoint comfort mode" or "Cooling setpoint comfort
mode". The values received are stored in the memory of the device and are retained in case of bus power failure and
subsequent return of bus voltage. This makes it possible to send new base setpoints to the device via a visualization when
the use of a room changes, for example.
New parameterization is not required. In case of a manual adjustment and dependent setpoints the reference base setpoint
is taken into consideration. This is used to specify whether the base setpoint refers to the comfort temperature for heating,
cooling or the mid-range temperature between heating and cooling.
"Setpoint heating" is the default setting. In regions where the cooling function is more important, it is recommended that you
change this parameter to "Setpoint cooling". This makes it easier to set the room thermostat and raise the cooling setpoint
(standby temperature cooling and night setback cooling).

KNX Technical Reference Manual

9.5.2
Individual setpoints
When individual setpoints are used, individual setpoints are defined for each operating mode ("Heating setpoint comfort
mode", Heating setpoint standby", "Heating setpoint night mode", "Cooling setpoint standby" and "Cooling setpoint night
mode".
Different to the dependent setpoints, the individual setpoints are also maintained after a manual setpoint shift. For example,
when the user has effected a setpoint shift of the parameterized temperature "Heating setpoint comfort mode" upward or
downward, the parameterized value "Heating setpoint standby" will always be called up when standby mode is activated.
This means that only the fixed setpoints that are stored will be called up for the individual operating modes.
The user can manually change the parameterized setpoints via the two buttons "Raise temperature" or "Lower temperature".
The change between "Heating setpoint comfort mode" and "Cooling setpoint comfort mode" is made via a long press
(approx. 1 sec.) of button "Raise temperature" to heating setpoint and on button "Lower temperature" to cooling setpoint.
The specified setpoints can be changed as often as desired via the bus also without the ETS. For this, a 2-byte temperature
value must be sent to the corresponding communication object "Setpoint heating comfort", "Setpoint heating standby",
Setpoint heating night mode", "Setpoint frost protection", "Setpoint cooling comfort", "Setpoint cooling standby", "Setpoint
cooling night mode" or "Setpoint heat protection". The values received are stored in the memory of the device and are
retained in case of bus power failure and subsequent return of bus voltage. This makes it possible to send new setpoints to
the device via a visualization when the use of a room changes, for example. New parameterization is not required.
9.5.3
Minimum distance
The adjustable parameter "Minimum distance between heating and cooling" is active both for the dependent and the
individual setpoints.
The minimum distance is always between "Heating setpoint comfort mode" and "Cooling setpoint comfort mode". It serves as
a buffer zone to prevent the the two setpoints from interfering with each other.
Example:
Individual setpoints has been selected. The "Heating setpoint comfort mode" is 21 °C and the "Cooling setpoint comfort
mode" is set on 26 °C. The dead zone between heating and cooling is 3 K. If a heating setpoint is now shifted upwards, the
dead zone also shifts upwards. If the shift exceeds a temperature of 23 °C, the "Cooling setpoint comfort mode" will also
shift upwards so that a minimum distance of 3 K is always guaranteed between heating and cooling.
If a cooling setpoint is shifted downwards, the dead zone also shifts downwards. If the shift exceeds a temperature of 24 °C,
the "Heating setpoint comfort mode" will also shift downwards so that a minimum distance is also guaranteed in this case.

9.6
Fan coil, general
The ventilation convectors, also called fan convectors or fan coil units, are used for decentralized heating and cooling. They
are installed in the room and supplied via a central heating and cooling system. There are two-pipe and four-pipe systems.
There are multi-stage ventilators within a fan coil unit that enable fast adjustment to the room temperature to be made
according to individual requirements. The fan coil room thermostat with display can activate up to three fan stages either
manually or automatically.
The fan stages can be activated in three ways:
•
via 1-bit values,
i.e., a 1-bit communication object "Fan coil stage ... switching" is made available for each fan stage. This required for
"normal switch actuators. ((When using KNX switch actuators and fan coil units, the connecting instructions for the fan
coil unit are to be observed).
•
via 1-byte object as numerical value 0-3,
i.e. there is a 1-byte communication object "Fan stage manual 1 byte" which is connected with a corresponding
communication object of a fan coil actuator. Here the value 0 = OFF 1 = stage 1 2 = stage 2 3 = stage 3
•
via 1-byte object as constant value 0-100%,
i.e. there is a 1-byte communication object "Fan stage manual 1 byte" which is connected with a corresponding
communication object of a fan coil actuator. During manual stage switchover the stage threshold values that are set on
tab heating or cooling are sent out. In heating mode the threshold values for heating, in cooling mode the threshold
values for cooling. To ensure that the fan coil unit switches the fan stages, the parameters of the associated fan coil
actuator must be set accordingly.
Via parameter "Evaluate fan stage status byte" a 1-byte communication object "Fan coil operating state", which is connected
with a corresponding object of a fan coil actuator, can be enabled. This allows the fan coil room thermostat evaluate which
fan stage is actually active on the fan coil actuator. The display corresponds to the value of the communication object (0 =
OFF, 1 = stage 1, 2 = stage 2, 3 = stage 3).
The parameter "Evaluate operation status byte" activates a 1-bit communication object "Receive during operation - actuator
monitoring". Cyclical telegrams from the fan coil actuator can be received and evaluated on this object. This allows the room
thermostat to check whether the fan coil actuator is still operating and can be activated. If the fan coil actuator has a problem
and can no longer send cyclical telegrams, the room thermostat will indicate this on the display with the "Error" symbol. If the
error on the fan coil actuator has been rectified and cyclical telegrams can be received, the "Error" on the display is removed
and the room thermostat will again function as "Normal".
The cycle time setting "In operation" in the fan coil actuator should be selected at least twice as large as the monitoring time
in the room thermostat ("Sending cycle time of actuator in sec."). A practical cycle time for the actuator is approximately 60
seconds with a monitoring time of 120 seconds for the room thermostat.
To prevent an excessive noise level in hotel rooms during the silent period in the night, a "Stage limitation for night mode"
can be set. This means that during night mode only the fan stage that has been set is automatically switched to. All fan
stages can be activated again when changing to a different operating mode.
Parameter "Stage limitation for night mode" can be used to set a limit to "Stage 2" or "Stage 1" or the ventilation can be
completely deactivated.

9.6.1
Summer compensation
To save energy and to maintain a reasonable temperature difference when entering an air-conditioned building, the room
temperature should be adjusted in relation to the external temperature (summer compensation according to DIN 1946). The
room temperature is raised by adjusting the "Cooling setpoint comfort mode".
Raising the room temperature does not, however, mean that you heat up the room. Rather the adjustment is intended to
allow the room temperature without cooling to increase to a specified value. This prevents the cooling system from further
reducing the room temperature to 24 °C with an external temperature of 35 °C.
However, the activation of summer compensation makes an external temperature sensor necessary that sends its measured
value to the KNX for evaluation by the room thermostat with display.
The following parameters are available for summer compensation:
•
"Summer compensation lower outside temperature value"
•
"Summer compensation upper outside temperature value"
•
“Summer compensation lower setpoint offset"
•
“Summer compensation upper setpoint offset"
The value of the lower and upper temperature is used to specify from and to which temperature value a setpoint correction is
to be made.
The lower and upper setpoint offset is used to specify by how many Kelvin the setpoint specified in the parameters or by the
user via a manual shift is to be adjusted during summer compensation.
Typical values for the summer compensation are:
•
20 °C: lower outside temperature value
•
32 °C: upper outside temperature value
•
0 K: lower setpoint offset
•
4 K: upper setpoint offset
That means that a flowing setpoint increase of 0 to 4 K occurs if the outside temperature increases from 20°C to 32°C.
Example:
In the lower diagram 25 °C has been parameterized for "Cooling setpoint comfort". When the outside temperature rises, the
parameterized setpoint is raised starting from an outside temperature of 20 °C flowing from 25 °C to 29 °C. The 29 °C are
reached at an outside temperature of 32 °C. After this the setpoint is no longer raised even though the outside temperature
rises.
Note:
When compensation is active, CO is shown on the display of the room thermostat.

With the "Setting the RTC operation mode" application, an operation mode switchover for connected room temperature
controllers can be carried out via an actuation of a rocker side.
Depending on the setting of the "Object type for output" parameter, the application offers either three 1-bit communication
objects "Operation mode comfort", "Operation mode night", and "Operation mode frost" or a 1-byte communication object
"Operation mode".
The selection "1-bit" is used for the control of room temperature controllers that have 1-bit communication objects for
operation mode switchover. The "1-byte" selection is used for the control of room temperature controllers that have a 1-byte
communication object for operation mode switchover to KNX. In this case, the values mean
0 = Auto
1 = Comfort
2 = Standby
3 = Night
4 = Frost / Heat protection
The function can be temporarily blocked via a 1-bit "Enable" communication object.

Value sender, 2 objects, rocker left/right
With the "Value sender, 2 objects, rocker left/right" application, two telegrams with predefined values from two different
communication objects can be sent out by actuation and/or upon release of the rocker.
The application "Value sender, 2 objects, rocker left/right" makes a separate set of parameters and communication objects
available in each case for the right or left side of the rocker.
For example, the application facilitates the sending out of a switching function and a floating point value with the actuation of
one rocker side and assigning an additional "button orientated" function to the other side of the rocker.

Light scene extension unit with memory function
Via the application "Light scene extension unit with memory function", a predefined light scene number is called up when the
rocker is actuated.
The application "Light scene extension unit with memory function" makes a separate set of parameters and communication
objects available in each case for the right or left side of the rocker.
The application facilitates calling up a light scene via a rocker side while the other rocker side can be assigned an additional
"button orientated" function.

Step switch, rocker total
The application "Step switch, rocker total" facilitates step-type switching. This means that the user can trigger different
switching processes with each new operation of the left or right side of the rocker.
Example:
First operation (right rocker side) switches lamp 1 on.
Second operation (right rocker side) switches lamp 1 off and lamp 2 on.
Third operation (right rocker side) switches lamp 2 off and lamp 3 on.
Fourth operation (left rocker side) switches lamp 3 off and lamp 2 on.
Fifth operation (left rocker side) switches lamp 2 off and lamp 1 on.
etc.
The application differentiates between whether the left or right side of the rocker was operated. Depending on the setting,
one lower or one higher step can be switched to.

Multiple operation, rocker left/right
With the "Multiple actuation, rocker left/right" application, a differentiation can be made between a single, double, triple,
quadruple or quintuple actuation of the rocker. Different values can be sent out for every operation: single, double, triple,
quadruple, or quintuple.
The application "Multiple actuation, rocker left/right" makes a separate set of parameters and communication objects
available in each case for the right or left side of the rocker. It is therefore possible to realise a multiple operation via one
side of the rocker and assigning a "button-orientated" function to the other side of the rocker.

Staircase lighting
With the "Staircase lighting" application, switching telegrams or value telegrams can be provided with a light-on time.
Depending on the parameterisation, the application shows different communication objects:
- a 1-bit object for input and output
If an ON telegram is received via the "Input/Output" object, the light-on time is started immediately. This can be a light-on
time of 00:10 min to 88:45 min, which is adjustable in 0.1 s steps. After expiration of the light-on time, the "Input/Output"
object sends an OFF telegram.
- two 1-bit objects for input and output
- and two 1-byte objects for input and output
If a telegram is received via the "Input" object, the light-on time is started immediately and a telegram with the same value of
the telegram received on the input is sent out on the "Output" object. This can be a light-on time of 00:10 min to 88:45 min,
which is adjustable in 0.1 s steps. After expiration of the light-on time, the "Output" object sends out an OFF telegram (1-bit)
or a telegram with the value "0" (1-byte).
Via two additional communication objects, it is possible to specify the light-on time and the switch-off prewarning time. The
2-byte values received are written to the memory of the device and are retained even after a bus power failure and
subsequent return of voltage.

With the "Light scene actuator" application, it is possible to call up scenes that are stored in the device via the receipt of a
scene number on the 1-byte communication object "Scene call-up". A maximum of eight scenes with up to eight actuator
objects can be created.
For triggering different actuators, the size of the actuator groups communication objects can be set under the "Actuator
group type" parameter.
The user has the option of saving the scenes himself. A corresponding save telegram must be received for this (see the

Gate
The "Gate" application allows specific signals to be filtered and the signal flow to be temporarily blocked. The function has
three communication objects: "Control input", "Input" and "Output".
The input or output object can assume different sizes.
The bit size can be freely assigned with the "Not assigned" setting. This means that the first internal or external group
address/action that is assigned and already connected to some other communication object will specify the size.
The control can occur from "Input to output" or also from "Output to input", provided the control input allows this. Enabling
via the control input can occur via an ON or an OFF telegram.
If, for example, the "Control input" setting is set to "ON telegram", only telegrams from the input are transmitted to the
output, if prior to this the control input has received an ON telegram.
It is also possible to block signals via the "Filter function" setting. Either "nothing is filtered out" or the signal "ON is filtered
out" or the signal "OFF is filtered out". This function is always necessary, for example, when only the ON telegram is
interesting for a sensor and the sensor does not offer any filter function in its application program.

Min/Max value transducer
Up to eight input values can be compared with each other using the "Min/max value transducer" application. The application
can output the highest input value, the smallest input value or the average of all input values on the output.
The size of the input objects, and with it also the size of the output object can be adapted for the most diverse applications.
You can select from the following object types:
- 1-byte 0..100 %, for comparison of percent values
- 1-byte 0..255, for the comparison of decimal values between 0 and 255
- 2-byte float, for the comparison of 2-byte floating point values (physical values such as temperature, brightness value etc.)
- 2-byte signed, for the comparison of decimal values between -32,768 and +32,767
- 2-byte unsigned, for the comparison of decimal values between 0 and 65,535
- 4-byte float, for the comparison of 4-byte floating point values (physical values such as acceleration, electrical current,
work etc.)
- 4-byte signed, for the comparison of decimal values between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647
- 4-byte unsigned, for the comparison of decimal values between 0 and 4,294,967,295
Hint:
With whole numbers the average value is rounded.

Threshold value / hysteresis
With the "Threshold value / Hysteresis" application, value telegrams can be received on an input communication object and
compared with threshold values specified in the device.
Predefined values are sent out on the communication "Output" communication object if the upper or lower thresholds are
exceeded. The size of the object can be adjusted for different applications.
The function can be temporarily blocked via an enable object.
If the value of the lower threshold lies above the value for the upper threshold, the function is not executed.

Priority
The "Priority" application has 3 communication objects, a 1-bit object "Switch input", a 2-bit object "Input priority" and a 1-bit
object "Output". The telegrams received on the "Switch input" are transferred to the "Output" depending on the state of the
"Input priority" object.
The 2-bit object "Input priority" can receive and differentiate between four different values (0, 1, 2 and 3). Here, the "Output"
object is positively driven. Three different states are differentiated:
- "Input priority" has value "3": the value that is present on "Switch input" has no meaning. The "Output" is switched to
positively driven and has the value "1".
– "Input priority" has the value "2". The value that is present on "Switch input" has no meaning. The "Output" is switched off
positively driven and has the value "0".
– "Input priority" has the value "1" or "0". The "Output" is not positively driven. The "Switch input" is linked to the status bit of
the priority object OR and transferred to the "Output".
During a positive drive, changes of the "Switch input" object are saved, even if the current state on the "Output" object does
not immediately change through this. If the positive drive is terminated, a telegram transmission on the "Output" occurs
according to the current value of the "Switch input" object.
