Overview
RPM Projects that include a NXB-CCG (Clear Connect Gateway) use six Lighting Scenes. In RPM, the pre-configured
Lighting Scenes are indicated in the Devices > Lighting Configuration page (FIG. 41):
FIG. 41 RPM - Devices > Lighting Configuration page
Note that Lighting Scenes are essentially dim level settings: 0%-All Off, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100% (All On).
These Lighting Scenes must be programmed on the NXB-CCG. This configuration determines how the six Lighting
buttons on the RPM-generated touch panel will function.
FIG. 42 provides an example of an RPM-generated Touch Panel showing the six Lighting Control buttons:
1

Programming the NXB-CCG (for Clear Connect Dimmers and Switches)
The following table lists the six RPM Lighting Scenes, provides their default dim level values, and indicates the one-toone correlation between Lighting Scenes 1-6 in RMP and Buttons 1-6 in the NXB-CCG WebConsole:
Lighting Scenes 1-6
(in RPM)
Default dim level value
(in RPM)

Button 3
• Lighting Scene 4
80%
Button 4
• Lighting Scene 5
All On (100%)
Button 5
• Lighting Scene 6
All Off (0%)
Button 6
Fundamentally, the RPM Lighting Scenes equate to Buttons 1-6 (under CCT Processor) in the NXB-CCG’s WebConsole.
As an example, since RPM Lighting Scene 1 has a default dim level value of 20%, it is necessary to program Button 1 in
the NXB-CCG WebConsole to also have a dim level value of 20%.
To program Buttons 1 - 6 on the NXB-CCG:
1. In the WebConsole, open the Program page.
2. Click to expand the CCT Processor entry in the Devices window.
The "CCT Processor" indicated here represents the NXB-CCG.
Under OCC Processor, note the listing of buttons 1-10 (FIG. 44):
FIG. 44 NXB-CCG WebConsole - Program page (CCT Processor expanded)
Buttons 1 - 6 equate to the six Lighting Scenes defined in the RPM project. They must be configured to
match the 6 dim values associated with Lighting Scenes 1-6 in RPM, since by default they are all set to
100% (all on). This configuration is done in the Button Details pages, as described below:
Buttons 7 - 10 are not applicable in this case.
You can add a Dimmer function and/or a Switch function to Buttons 1- 6 under CCT Processor.
Dimmer Functions specify a dim level (as well as fade time) to each button. These six dim levels equate to the
six Lighting Scenes provided by RPM. When you add a Dimmer to a button, it associates the button with the
specified dim level (and fade time).
Switch Functions specify On or Off.

14
RPM Device Configuration Guide - NXB-CCG NetLinx Clear Connect Gateway
Programming the NXB-CCG (for Clear Connect Dimmers and Switches)
You can add both a Dimmer and a Switch to a button. In this case, both functions will
be activated when that button is pressed on the touch panel. For example, Button 1
can be configured to place the dimmer at 20% as well as turn the switch to Off.
Configuring Buttons 1-6: Adding Dimmer Functions
To configure the Lighting Control Buttons 1-6 on the touch panel (see FIG. 42 on page 13) to match RPM Lighting
Scenes 1-6:
1. In the Program page, click on Button 1 (under CCT Processor in the Devices window) to open the Button 1 Details

to activate RPM-generated Lighting Scenes (1-6). Keypads also include a Raise button and a Lower button for ramping
functions (see FIG. 9 on page 5).
Keypad buttons are configured via the NXB-CCG WebConsole. Keypad buttons are represented in the Program page,
under Keypad in the Devices window (FIG. 52):
FIG. 52 NXB-CCG WebConsole (Program page) - Keypad buttons
Fundamentally, the Lighting Scenes 1-6 that are included with the RPM project equate to Buttons 1-6 under Keypad in
the NXB-CCG’s WebConsole.
You can add a Dimmer function and/or a Switch function to Button 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 under Keypad.
Dimmer Functions specify a dim level (as well as fade time) to each button. These six dim levels equate to the
six Lighting Scenes provided by RPM. When you add a Dimmer to a Keypad button, it associates the button
with the specified dim level (and fade time).
Switch Functions specify On or Off
To configure Buttons 1-6 on the CCD-W6BRL Keypad (see FIG. 9 on page 5) to match RPM Lighting Scenes 1-6:
1. In the Program page, click on Button 1 (under Keypad in the Devices window) to open the Button 1 Details page
(FIG. 53).

Connect Occupancy Sensor
Overview
CCD-OCRB-P (-WH) Clear Connect Occupancy Sensors report two states: Occupied (if it detects people in the room)
and Unoccupied (if it detects that the room is empty). If the RPM Project includes an Occupancy Sensor, then the
Occupied and Unoccupied actions can be programmed to activate specific RPM-generated Lighting Scenes.
Occupancy Sensor Actions are configured via the NXB-CCG WebConsole. Occupancy Sensor Actions are represented
in the Program page, under Occupancy (Sensor) in the Devices window (FIG. 61):

Assigning Lighting Scenes to Macros
Assigning Lighting Scenes to Macros
Overview
Each Lighting Scene can be added to a new or existing macro. The following instructions describe creating a new macro
and adding a Lighting Scene as a macro item:
1. Click Macros in the menu bar to open the Macros page (FIG. 69):
FIG. 69 Macros page
2. Click Add Macro to access the Macro Details page. where you will configure a new macro.
3. In the Macro Name text box, enter a descriptive name for a lighting macro (required).
Since this macro will be associated with one of the Lighting Scenes configured in the Lighting - Device Details
page (see FIG. 70), the macro name should relate to the Lighting Scene to which the macro will be associated. For
example, if Scene 1 was named "20% Dim" (as shown in FIG. 70), then a logical Macro Name would be along the
lines of "Dim Lights".
4. Select a Macro Icon (required). Since this macro is for Lighting, select the Lighting icon from the drop-down list.
5. If there is a specific touch panel page on which you want to place the button for this macro, then select the desired
page from the Touch Panel Navigation drop-down (optional, default = not used).
6. Under Select a Device, select Lighting from the drop-down menu.
7. Under Select a Function, select the function to associate with this macro from the drop-down menu. Note that the
items in this menu represent the Scene Names that were configured in the Lighting - Device Details page
(Configuration tab).
8. Under Add Macro Item, click Add to add the new macro to the Macro Items list (FIG. 70):
