With the RGBW Dimmer Tree, extra low-voltage LED fittings and LED strips can be dimmed using PWM and any useable colours can be mixed. The 4 outputs can be configured as one RGBW channel, or can be used as 4 separate channels.
The device is also available in a compact housing (RGBW Compact Dimmer Tree). The functions are identical.

The RGBW Dimmers is installed on a DIN rail in a suitable enclosure. The Compact Dimmer can be used without a separate enclosure. The cable should be kept as short as possible to reduce voltage drop.
The wire size should be selected so that the voltage drop is not more than 1 V. This can be determined using the following formula:
ΔU = I · R = I · ((2 · L · ρ) / A)
I … current [A], L … cable length [m], A … wire cross-section [mm²], ΔU … voltage drop [V], ρ … resistance [( Ω*mm²)/m], ρ= constant (0,0172 for copper)
Connect the power supply and Tree communication wires. Shortly after power-up, the status LED will blink orange if the wiring is correct (connection to Tree Extension and Miniserver is established).
If "Individual channels " is selected as actuator type in the properties of the device, the channel assignment is as follows:
Output 1 - terminal red, output 2 - terminal green, output 3 - terminal blue, output 4 - terminal white
|Smart actuator RGBW||Smart actuator||∞|
|Online Status RGBW 24V Dimmer Tree||Digital|
|Monitor Online Status||When selected, you will be notified via System Status or the Cloud Mailer if the device is no longer available or goes offline.||-|
|Serial Number||Specifies the serial number of the device.
For Extensions: 'Auto' may only be used if only one Extension of this type is being used.
|Device type||Tree device type||-|
|Actuator Type||Use device with Standard Actuator(s) or Smart Actuator(s)
Smart Actuators support dynamic fade times and can only be used with the Lighting Controller V2.
|Switch off status LEDs||If checked, the status LEDs on the device are switched off in normal operation.
In the event of a fault, the device will continue to alert you to its status LEDs.
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.
