DEVICE TEST

The Damper can open or close completely for test purposes. To perform this test, right click on the Damper in the Periphery. Here, you can now carry out the device Start Device Test (= fully open Damper),  Stop Device Test (= fully close Damper) and obtain the travel details (Re-calibrate Device).

DEVICE CALIBRATION

To ensure that the Damper knows the exact movement they must run a calibration procedure. This is done automatically when you first learn the Damper in so we recommend you learn in and power up your Damper for the first time once installed.
