Comissioning the Loxone Nano Dimmer Air
Initial steps to setup the Nano Dimmer Air
- Power supply: 230V AC, 50 / 60Hz (Terminals Reated at Max 10A)
- Single dimmed output. Leading or trailing edge selectablein software
- For traditional loads (incandescent bulbs, coil transformers) max. 200W i.e. 200VA - min. 30W
- For capacitive loads (LEDs, electronic transformers) max. 110W i.e. 110VA - min. 15W i.e. 15VA
- Based on Loxone Air Technology
- Frequency: 868 MHz (SRD band Europe), 915MHz (ISM Band Region 2)
- Standby Power Consumption: 0.4 W approx
- Dimensions: 53 x 53 x 31mm
- Onboard microprocessor
- Ambient temperature: 0 - 35 °
- Max. Relative humidity 95% (non-condensing)
- Protection: IP20
- Method of Type 1 (EN60730-1)
- Rated surge voltage: 1kV (EN60730-1, max altitude 2000m.)
Here we see how the Loxone Nano Dimmer Air can be learnt in, it must first be placed in Learn Mode.
When the Nano Dimmer Air is first powered up it will automatically start in Learn Mode.
Restarting Learn Mode:
If you ever need to put a Loxone Nano Dimmer Air back into learn mode this can be done very easily. Simply press and hold the learn button for 5 seconds within 10 seconds of powering the device up. This will force the Dimmer Air back into Learn Mode
The learn button is located on the front bottom left of the unit (see below).
Once the unit is in the learn mode, the status LEDs will alternately blink Red - Green - Yellow.
Now we have to start the air search. To do this, select the Air Base Extension in the Periphery Tree, and then click the button "Air Device Search".
The Nano Dimmer Air will now be listed in the Periphery Tree.
As default only the output will be listed here. Additional diagnostic inputs like Online Status and CPU Temperature can be added by checking the "Display Diagnostic Inputs" in the Properties.
The "Dimming Type" is by default set to "Off".
When comissioning the correct dimming type must be selected for the load being connected.
Replacing the Nano Dimmer Air
If you need to replace a device in Loxone Config, this can easily be done through the Air Monitor.
- Install and power up the Nano Dimmer Air and place the device in learn mode. (see Commissioning )
- Highlight the device in the Air Monitor when it appears.
- Using the drop-down menu select the device to be replaced and click the "Replace device " button.
Once this is done, save the configuration to the Miniserver.
Please note that the Nanon Dimmer Air only has a single output channel, but two terminals for connections.
The Nano Dimmer Air is not suitable for low voltage or DC applications, but only 230V AC. The terminals are rated for currents of up to 10A for looping cables in and out, but the dimmer channel is NOT. To avoid damage observe the maximum allowed load stated in the specifications at the top of this page.
