The Dimmer functions

Description

The dimming functions modify the status of the dimmer output between 0% (= 0V = off) and 100% (= 10V = on) or an intermediate value

The functioning of an interface:

Image163

Dimmer
this parameter defines the dimmer which is being controlled by the function.

Type 'Switch between LAST level/OFF'

Short
after a short push on the button, the dimmer will switch between 0% and the last active status of the dimmer. When the light is burning at 40%, then with a short push the light will go out (dimming to 0%). Again short pushing switches the light to 40%.
Long
functioning is identical to 'Short'.
Under 'Long' this function is seldom used, only if due to lack of buttons from one and the same button 2 dimmers can be controlled

Type 'Switch between: put level/OFF:

  • Short: after a short push on the button, the dimmer will switch between 0% and a predefined state of the dimmer.
  • Long: working identical to 'Short'.

Type 'Define Level:

  • Short: The dimmer will be switched to the predefined level.
  • Long: working identical to 'Short'.

Type 'Define last level:

  • Short: the dimmer will be switched to the last level when the dimmer is out.
  • Long: working identical to 'Short'.

Type 'Define last level/100%.'

  • Short: the dimmer will be set on the last level, when the dimmer is out. Otherwise the dimmer will be set to 100%.
  • Long: Working identical to 'Short'.
This is usable when controlling a dimmer on the TDS12022 AURUS-OLED or TDS12032 AURUS-OLED PLUS. See chapter AURUS-OLED (PLUS) for more information.

'Continuously dimming' type

Short
This function type cannot be selected under 'Short'.
Long
when long pushing on the button, the dimmer will make a continuous linear movement between 0% and 100%. With this function the light intensity can be adjusted completely to your needs.
When you are selecting under 'Short' a 'Switch between LAST level/OFF' type for a particular dimmer, PROSOFT automatically selects under 'Long' the 'Continuously dimming' type for that dimmer. If afterwards the selected dimmer is being modified under 'Short', then the dimmer will follow under 'Long'.
If you want to operate another function under 'Long' then this automatic suggestion can always be modified. Thus the automatic following is cut off.

'Dimming Up' type:

Short
This function type cannot be selected under 'Short'.
Long
when pushing long on a button, the dimmer will increase from the active status till 100%.

'Dimming Down' type:

Short
this function type cannot be selected under 'Short.
Long
when pushing long on a button, the dimmer will decrease from the active status till 0%.
For optimal ease of use it is recommended to control only one dimmer for each button.
When the dimmer output has been set on a small value (smaller than 10%), then when being reactivated with a short push, your TELETASK domotics system, will set the status of the dimmer automatically at 10%. From this value on most light points are softly lit, so that the 'on' status is visible.

Behaviour when the function is used in another function

Image164

  • Target Value: this parameter defines the desired dim status. The Parameter can be set from 0% till 100%. The target value is standard set on 100%. Following settings are possible:
xx %
when a function is activated the dimmer will go to the set target value (0-100%).
xx %/Off
when a function is activated the dimmer will go to the set target value (0-100%). When the function is switched off the dimmer goes out (0%).
Not every function can be switched off. Consult for this matter the description of the respective function.

Parameters

Fade in
this parameter defines the needed time to bring the dimmer output from 0% to 100%. The 'Fade in' can be set on 16 fixed predefined times: 0,5 sec;1 sec; 2 sec; 3 sec; 4 sec; 7 sec; 10 sec; 15 sec; 30 sec; 1 min;2 min; 5 min; 15 min; 30 min; 1 hour. Standard 'Fade in' is set on 1 sec.
Fade out
this parameter defines the needed time to bring the dimmer output form 100% to 0%. The 'Fade out' can be set on 16 fixed predefined times (identical to 'Fade in'. Standard 'Fade out' is set on 3 sec.
At an increase towards the desired status the dim speed is calculated in accordance with the set 'Fade in: The dim speed amounts to 20% of the 'Fade in' when the difference between the desired and the active status of the dimmer is 20%.
At a decrease towards the desired status the dim speed is calculated in accordance with the set 'Fade out: The dim speed amounts to 20% of the 'Fade out' when the difference between the desired and the active status of the dimmer is 20%.
