Valve Actuator Air
How to setup your Actuator Air.
- Power Supply: 24VDC (SELV) or 2 x AA Alkaline Batteries (Battery Life up to 2 years)
- Stepper motor with low noise movement
- Integrated Temperature Sensor
- Operating Temperature: 0°C - 55°C
- Humidity: 95% RH
- Type 1 (EN60730-1)
- Frequency: 868 MHz (SRD band Europe), 915MHz (ISM Band Region 2), FCC ID: COR-ZWIR4512AC1
- Protection class: IP20
- No maintenance required. Clean with a dry cloth.
Please also note, the actuator Air is the only device that does not work as a repeater of the mesh network, even when powered with 24V.
In order for the Valve Actuator Air to be learned in to the Miniserver, it must first be set to learning mode.
When the battery is inserted for the first time, the device immediately goes into Learning mode. The Learning mode ends when the Actuator Air has been successfully connected to the Miniserver or the 10 minute initial Learn period ends.
Press the Learn button while the battery is inserted for at least 5 seconds, the sensor is now in Leaning mode.
The Learn button is located on the top of the Valve Actuator Air.
Once the unit is in Learn mode, the status LEDs will flash alternately between red-green-yellow.
Now we need to turn on the Air monitor. Click on the Air Base Extension and then select the checkbox "Start and Display Air Monitor".
Next, press the "Start Search" button in the Air monitor. All Air devices that are in Learn mode will be displayed.
Now select the device, enter a description and press the "Create Device" button.
The Valve Actuator Air will now be located in the Periphery tree.
The following Inputs and Outputs are available for use:
The "Battery Low" input will be on only when there is not enough power to operate the stepper motor.
The actuators Analogue output can be connected directly to the AQ output of the Intelligent Room Controller. The actuators are already set up to be optimised for proportional control over a 0-10 signal.

Device Identifying itself (does not work with Batteries)
If a device has been replaced, you need to update the serial number. You can easily do that in the Air Monitor in Loxone Config.
- mount the new device and activate the power supply or insert the battery
- search for air devices in learn-mode (as shown in the "setup" section)
- highlight the new device and choose the device you would like to replace in the drop-down menu
Finally press "Replace Device" and save your program in the Miniserver. The device has now been replaced.
Air devices will automatically update in the background and do not affect the functionality of the device. If the update is interrupted, it will automatically restart.
The update may take up to an hour.
The version of the devices can be checked on the Device status. If the field showing the firmware level of the device is highlighted in green, the device is using the current firmware.
