Technische Daten Air Base Extension - Loxone

Installation

  • Mount Air Base Extension on a DIN rail
  • Connect 24V DC power supply, but do not switch on until the whole installation is completed 
    (We recommend looping the power through the Miniserver)
  • Connect the Loxone Link
  • Note: If it's the last extension, terminate the Loxone Link with a 120Ω resistor 
    (Included with the Miniserver)
  • Turn on the power supply
  • After a few seconds, the left LED will flash green if the Air Base Extension is already configured, or orange if not

Updates

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.

Configuring Extensions

Extensions are connected to the Miniserver with Loxone Link

To add one or more extensions to the program the simplest way is to connect up the extensions to the Miniserver using the Loxone Link and looping power. Then do a search in Loxone Config, which will bring up the Miniserver and all the connected extensions. You can highlight a single extension, give it a name and then click Create device which will add in the highlighted extension. Or you can click on Create all devices which will add all the connected extensions in to the program with the correct serial numbers.

Extensions are not connected to the Miniserver

If there is no physical extensions connected to the Miniserver they cannot be found in the search. However you can add the extensions to the program so you can configure a system before installing. In the configuration software, connect to your Miniserver and download the existing configuration (if there is one) from the Miniserver. Select the 'Devices' drop-down menu on the Periphery tab and select the required extension, then fill in the serial number in the properties.

Entering a serial number

If you are manually adding devices before the Miniserver install has been done, or if an extension has been replaced you need to add the serial number in the properties. Click on the extension in the periphery tree. Enter the serial number of the extension in the properties section. 

Serial number
The serial number is on the back of your extension. You can find the number just below the barcode (see picture).

Save the configuration in the Minisever

After entering your extension's serial number, click on the Miniserver tab and select 'Save in Miniserver'. The controller reboots and after about 10 seconds, both status LEDs on the extension will turn green.

Identify device

If you have installed several extensions of the same type and cannot identify which one is which (for example 2 DMX extensions) then you can use the software to identify a device. Simply click on the device in the periphery tree and the extension will flash red, green and yellow very quickly so you can identify it.
