‘Basic’ parameters which are available for every 'General interface:
- Main IR enable
- By default, the 'Main IR enable' is on. When this parameter is marked ('V'), then every button can be controlled with the TELETASK infrared remote control. If you don't want the panel to be controllable by IR remote, remove the 'V' mark in this field.
The IR control can also be individually disabled for each button. See for more details below at 'button' parameter settings.
- Beep on IR command
- Marked 'V' by default. When a function is controlled by the TELETASK IR remote control, the panel buzzer will beep short when this parameter is marked with 'V'.
This parameter is not yet available on all interfaces.
- Audio Zone
- A 'General interface can be related to a certain 'Audio Zone'. This is important when controlling audio functions on your TELETASK IR remote control (TDS12502). Example: when you click the 'CD' button on your remote control, the system needs to know in which audio zone the interface is installed, so it can start the correct CD and the correct audio zone power amplifier. Select the audio zone from the predefined zones. If you didn't yet entered the different audio zones in your project, please do so first (in the PROSOFT screen of the concerning audio interface which you are using in your project).
- Sensor Zone
- Familiar to the audio zone setting, you must connect the interface to a certain sensor zone. When using a temperature control function on your remote control (TDS12502), the interface (for example a touch panel) must me dedicated to a certain heating/cooling zone for the system to be able to change the correct temperature setting for you. Select the Sensor zone out of the sensor list which you have entered already or, if not, add the temperature sensors and their zone names first before proceeding here. Sensor zones are defined at the level of the analogue (sensor) input unit. Look also in the thematical chapter 'setting up a heating/cooling system' for more information on this subject.
- RGB Zone: in this field you can link a multi-colour lighting zone (RGB) to a 'General Interface'. This means that the selected RGB function will be controlled when you activate it with the remote control when pointing at the IR receiver of the General Interface. (when using the TDS12502)
Parameter per individual button/input:
- The definition of the functional features of a 'General Interface' is mainly defined by the relations between the inputs (for example the buttons of a touch panel or contact inputs of a digital input interface) and the outputs (relays, dimmers, motors…) of the system. Due to the characteristics of a relation, decide what the actions are to be done after pushing a button or closing an input contact of a general input interface. Additionally, there may be two different relations for every input (button or contact). There is a possible relation for pushing 'short' and another relation for pushing 'long' on the concerned button / contact:
- the function behind the 'short' action will be used to be processed when the user pushes only briefly on the concerning button or when the concerned input contact is only closed briefly.
- the function behind the 'long' action will be used to be processed when the user pushes longer than 1,2s on the concerning button or when the concerned input contact is closed for a 'long' time.
- LONG push on general interfaces
- This time can only have two settings: 1,2 or 3 seconds. This setting is automatically adapted to the value of the direct input Long push.
- LONG pushing internal contact inputs
- To be set between 1 second to 5 seconds in steps of 0.5 seconds. By default this time is 1 second.
- In this field there are two more settings possible for each individual button/input:
!!! Take care about the important remark below in the frame!!!
- Enable Remote Control
- when this parameter is marked 'V' (default), then you can control the individual button (short and long) or contact input which is currently selected on the picture of the interface.
- Enable Button Control
- this parameter is available for the physical buttons on the touch panel or the physical inputs on the input interface. It is similar to the 'enable Remote Control'. By default this parameter is marked for all individual buttons/contacts. So when somebody pushes a button which is not marked at the 'Enable Button Control' nothing will happen. The relation of that button, although it is defined, will not be processed because the button activity is disabled.
Disabling the button function is seldom used, but is for example usable if visitors are not allowed to control something in the house. The occupant can for example control that function with a remote control. Can be useful in public areas.
- This is a text field for your information only (on screen and on paper). You can enter a specific description here about the location of the concerning button. This is particularly useful on digital input interfaces. This text will displayed in the ‘Input list’ on the ‘List interfaces’ window and in Diagnostics/Digital inputs.
Example: 'motion detector driveway' or 'push button hallway'.
Clean button on AURUS touch panels
All AURUS touch panels have a (hidden) clean button which disables the operation for a couple of seconds. Pressing short will switch the display ON (only for AURUS-4 TEMP and AURUS-OLED (PLUS)). When pressing for a couple of seconds, it will set the Touch panel in clean mode. During this time the panel can be cleaned without activating any buttons.
For the AURUS-1, AURUS-2, AURUS-2 SENSE, AURUS-4S, AURUS-4XL, AURUS-4 TEMP and AURUS-OLED, this hidden clean button is situated at the top in the middle. For the AURUS-OLED PLUS it’s the middle dot on its left side.
