Once the device is on and blinking orange, you can begin the learning process. Firstly, carry out a Tree Device search by selecting the Tree Extension in the periphery tree and then hitting the button in the top ribbon.
Once your device has appeared in the Tree learn monitor, you can enter its installation place into the blank box, assign it to a room and then hit create device.
You can easily replace a device within Loxone config without having to go through and reconnect everything.
In order to do this, find the device in the search and instead of hitting “create device” you can select an item of the same type from a drop-down box and then replace it.
The versions of the devices can be checked in the device status window. If the version number is green, then no update is needed.
Please be aware that these updates can take up to one hour and that the version number won’t always match the Miniserver’s firmware version.
You can easily detect cabling issues by observing the LED on a Tree device itself. If the device has an orange flash, it means the cabling is ok and that the device just hasn’t been learned in.
If the device has a red connection then the device doesn’t have a connection to the Miniserver so you need to check your tree branch’s cabling.
In order to be able to examine the communication on the individual tree branches, there is tree diagnostics in the Config. For this, you can use the diagnostics to analyze cabling problems quickly and easily.
The diagnostics dialogue lists all connected devices.
The colours green, yellow and red indicates the communication status of the Tree devices.
|Green||Commincation is fine|
|Yellow||Some communication issues. Some data is lost. Check the wiring. Typical causes: loose connection, cable has been cut, cable length is greater than 500 and/or the cable is not suitable.|
|Red||No communication with this device is possible. Check the wiring. Typical causes for this are: break in the cabel , reversed polarity on the device.|
