The Loxone Nano Dimmer Air is used for the dimming of mains voltage luminaires. It is suitable for both conventional and electronic lamps. Depending on the load, dimming can be carried out with either leading edge or trailing edge dimming.

Install the device in a suitable installation box. Connect the device according to the following wiring diagram:
The device has two connection terminals, however, they are the same output, the terminals are bridged internally.
Before commissioning, it must be ensured that there is neither a short circuit nor an overload at the output.
When installing the device and replacing fittings, always switch off the mains voltage for personal safety and for the safety of the device. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and damage to property.
In delivery state, pairing mode will be active after the power supply has been established. This is indicated by the status LED flashing red/green/orange.
To activate the pairing mode manually, hold down the pairing button for at least 5 seconds after establishing power supply.
Setting the correct dimming mode↑
|Please observe the recommended dimming type and load limits!|
|Only use luminaires that marked as dimmable!|
|Load type||Dimming type||Maximum load||Minimum load|
|Incandescent bulbs||Trailing edge||200W||30W|
|Mains Voltage Halogen Lamps||Trailing edge||200W||30W|
|Low voltage halogen lamps with electronic transformer (ELV)||Trailing edge||110VA*||15VA|
|LED light bulb with driver||Trailing edge||110VA*||15VA|
|Fluorescent lamp with electronic ballast||Trailing edge||110VA*||15VA|
|Mains voltage LED bulbs (retrofit, LED bulbs)||Trailing or leading edge (uncommon)||110VA||15VA, 30VA for leading edge/inductive|
|Low voltage halogen lamps with magnetic transformer (MLV)||Leading edge||200VA**||30VA|
|*The sum of the nominal load of the ballasts, LED drivers or transformers is relevant, not the nominal load of the actual light.|
|**A magnetic transformer must be loaded with at least 80% of it's capacity!|
|The ballasts, LED drivers, electronic transformers etc. used must be mains voltage dimmable!|
|If in doubt, the manufacturer of the luminaire can provide information on the load characteristics (whether inductive or capacitive) and the recommended dimming method.|
Touch for Nano↑
The optional plug-on modules Touch for Nano and Touch Pure for Nano feature five touch points to control the most important functions of a room. When a button is touched, an audible click confirms the action.
The plug-on module mounting frame is snapped onto the Nano Dimmer and then screwed onto the installation box. Finally, the Touch for Nano is plugged on along with the frame.
When using the Touch for Nano plug-on module, it must activated in the properties of the Nano Dimmer Air in Loxone Config. The inputs will then be available in the peripheral tree.
|The Touch for Nano's large centre touch zone is ideal for controlling the lighting, while the corner zones are suitable for controlling music and shading. It is based on the Loxone switch standard. The buttons can also be freely used for other applications. To use the individual buttons as inputs, activate the checkboxes in the Properties window. The audible confirmation can also be disabled here.|
|The NFC Code Touch for Nano is not compatible with the Nano Dimmer Air.|

Please choose the type of dimming that is appropriate for your fittings.
The installation must be carried out by a qualified technician in accordance with all applicable regulations.
The installation requires a suitable enclosure to ensure protection against contact, water and dust.
The device must not be used as part of safety-critical systems.
