RGBW 24V Dimmer Air
Instructions to help you get your RGBW 24V Dimmer Air installed and configured.
The RGBW Dimmer Air is the wireless equivalent of the RGBW Dimmer DMX. It works directly with your Air Base Extension (no DMX Extension needed) so you can control LED strips all over your house without needing to run cables! It is designed to be placed in the central location with all the other Loxone equipment as the dimmer has a DIN rail mount. This page will show you how to wire up the dimmer and how to add it in to Loxone Config so it communicates with the Air Base.
- Power requirements: 24VDC
- Rating per channel: 50W (equivalent to 2.1A)
- Outputs can be bridged
- Power consumption: < 150mW
- Operating temperature: 0 to 55°C
- Max. cable length from dimmer to LED strip: 30m
The Status LEDs flash orange at first. After the Dimmer has been learnt the LEDs blink green to confirm this was successful and then both the LEDs are off permanently.
The diagram below shows how you wire up the RGBW Dimmer Air to your LED strip. You can place the RGBW Dimmer Air's in a central location, but remember the maximum distance from the dimmer to the strip is 30m so you can place the dimmer near the strip too.
Setup in Loxone Config
Once you have wired up all the RGBW Dimmer Air's to LED strips and powered them up you can now set them up in Loxone Config so you can control your LED strips from the app or webinterface. Follow these steps to find out how:
Step 1: Air Search
Now all your dimmers are connected you can find them using the Air Monitor. Click on the Air Extension in the periphery tree and then in the Context menu in the top bar tick the box that is called Air Monitor.
Step 2: Add the RGBW Dimmer
At every restart of the RGBW Dimmer Air signal is sent, which is displayed in the Air Monitor. To identify the dimmer the easiest way to do this is to unplug the dimmer from the power and power it up again.
To add the dimmer to the program click on the respective dimmer, enter a name and then click Create device.
Step 3: Use the outputs
The dimmer is now listed in the periphery tree window so you can drag and drop the outputs into pages to use in your program. Now save the program into the Miniserver.
Tip: Clear the monitor
If you have lots of Air devices in the Monitor and wish to clear it before you start monitoring you can empty the results. To do this right click in the Monitor window and click Clear.
The Air devices will run their update automatically in the background, and they will function throughout the update.
If the Air devices are updating when the Miniserver and the Air Base Extension are rebooted then the Air devices will restart the update from the beginning after the reboot.
The update can take up to an hour so do be aware of this! You can check the version of the devices by looking in Device status. Click on the Miniserver tab and then click the Device status button once.
