Shading Actuator Air

The Shading Actuator Air is a wireless device for mains voltage controlled via Loxone Air technology. The two relay outputs can be used to connect either shading devices or other loads. The device is equipped with Hirschmann STAK3/STAS3 connectors and can be plugged into the supply line of the shading device.

Mounting

Install the device at the desired location and connect the plugs.

Install the device and cables in a way that they will not be damaged by the shading device.
In order to prevent water ingress, careful assembly is necessary. Make sure that the gaskets on both connectors are properly positioned, the safety brackets are locked, and the cable glands are tight. If possible, position the device so that the Loxone logo faces up and the device is protected from heavy rain, submersion and standing water.

Finally, switch on the power supply.


Commissioning

In delivery state, pairing mode will be active after the power supply has been established. This is indicated by a short audible click of the relays or a brief up/down movement of the shading device.

Then follow the pairing procedure

To activate the pairing mode manually, switch off the power for 10 seconds, then switch it back on. If no connection to a Miniserver can be established for two minutes, then pairing mode is activated for 30 minutes.


Programming

In the properties under Application, you can select whether to use the Shading Actuator Air for Automatic Blinds or as a universal actuator.

When used as a Shading Actuator, drag and drop the device onto the programming page to create a Automatic Blinds function block. In the properties of the function block, the Shading Actuator is already assigned.

In order to learn the travel times, the shading device must fully travel three times in opposite directions. (fully open - fully closed - fully open). The travel must not be interrupted. The times are measured and automatically transferred to the Automatic Blinds block.

When used as a universal actuator, two freely programmable digital outputs and one digital input for current flow are available. The threshold value for the current flow cannot be changed.

Properties

Summary Description Default Value
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. -
Disable Routing Functionality Disable router functionality of this Air device.

Loxone Air is based on mesh technology. Any air device connected to the power supply can route packets from other Air devices, thus extending the range and stability of the overall system.
In large systems with a large number of air devices in a confined space, the communication between the air devices can lead to a very high radio channel utilization. A reliable accessibility of the air devices can not be guaranteed. Disabling router functionality on individual Air devices can help.

Do not disable this function recklessly as this may affect the range and stability of the system.
-
Air serial number Serial number of the Air device -
Device type Air device type -
Application Specifies the intended use of the actuators.
Universal: Outputs can be used freely
Automatic Blinds: Auto-Configuration will create a Automatic Blinds function block
-
Automatically set drive times Automatically set the complete drive times (for blind actuator).
When using motors with less than 90W this is not possible. In this case please disable this option and manually set the drive times using the parameters Tu and Td in the properties of the automatic blind block.
-
Inverted Direction Invert direction. Required when Up/Down connection is made the wrong way round. -




Safety Instructions

The installation must be carried out by a qualified technician in accordance with all applicable regulations.

The device must not be used as part of safety-critical systems.
