The step function

Description

A 'Step' function contains up to 10 different functions. Each time the 'step' function is called, the next step will be executed.
For example: switching between the 10 different RGB colours by using just one button.

Parameters

Image202

Name
the naming of a 'Step' function is divided in 3 parts:
  • Room: select here the room where the 'step' function will be activated.
  • Icon: select here if the 'step' function has to be reproduced on a TELETASK touchscreen and if so, with the use of which icon?
  • Name: Fill in a short but clear description of the 'step' function.
Select output
in this field you can define up to 10 functions which will be controlled step by step when activating the 'step' function. Depending of the selected function, per function you have to put in some function specific parameters. See the description of the chosen function.
  • ;Add 'OFF' step: this parameter determines if after the last step the first step will be repeated or if an 'OFF' step follows. If the 'OFF' step is used, all functions within the 'step' function will be switched off.

Function behaviour when used on an interface

Type 'Step'

  • 'Short: with a short push on the button the 'Step' function is activated. This means that the first function of the desired status will be switched. A next push will activate the next step. The previous step won't be switched off explicit.
  • 'Long: The operation is the same as described under 'Short'.

Type 'Out'

  • 'Short: with a short push on the button the 'Step' function will be switched off. All steps have to be switched of explicitly.
  • 'Long: The operation is the same as described under 'Short'.

Function behaviour when operating in another function

A 'Step' function can be selected in another function. When activating the other function, the 'Step' function will connect according the predefined target value.

STEP
when activating the function the next step will be executed.
OFF
when activating the function the 'step' function will be switched off. All steps will be switched off explicitly.
STEP/OFF
when activating the function, the next step will be executed, when switching off the function, the 'step' function will be switched off. All steps will be switched off explicitly.
OFF/OFF
when activating or switching off a function the 'step' function will be switched off. All steps will be switched off explicitly.
Not every function can be switched off. If a function can be switched off is marked at the different functions.
When another function switches off the current step of the 'step' function, the 'step' function will be considered as switched off. This means that the 'step' function later on will re-start at step 1 (the other steps are not switched off explicitly).
When a ‘step’ of a ‘step function’ is activated by another function the ‘current step’ of the ‘step function’ will not be set to this ‘step’. (This is because it’s possible that different ‘steps’ of a ‘step function’ are “ON” at the same time, e.g. it’s is possible that both ‘a LMD in step 2’ and ‘a different LMD in step 5’ of a ‘step function’ are switched on by another function. Hence it is not possible to define which ‘step’ of the ‘step function’ should be considered as the ‘current step’).
