Instructions for commissioning the Geiger SolidLine Air
Mounting instructions of the Geiger Solidline Air.
The required engine torque can be calculated as follows:
Torque = 0.6 x blind weight
As an example:
Blinds weighing 16.5kg require 10Nm torque
Blinds weighing 33.0kg require 20Nm torque
SETUP IN LOXONE CONFIG
When the power is turned on, the learning mode is automatically started for 30 minutes.
Briefly disconnect power supply: As with the initial Air commissioning, after power is restored, the Loxone Air learning mode is started after 2 minutes if no connection to the Air Base can be established. The learn mode is then active for 10 min.
To turn on the Air Monitor, click to the Air Base Extension and then activate the checkbox ” Air Monitor ” .
The following inputs and outputs are available in the configuration:
|Motor position status||Analogue Input||Current position of shading ( is updated always after completion of the motion ) Range: 0.000 (open) to 1.000 (closed)|
|Motor position||Analogue Output||Desired target position of the shading region: 0.000 ( fully open ) to 1.000 (Fully open) , -1 = Stop|
This output is not used with the automatic blinds block .
|Command output||Analogue Output||This output is used with the automatic blinds block.|
|Motor in motion||Digital Input||A = motor in motion.|
|Motor blocked||Digital Input||A – Motor stopped.|
|Obstruction detected||Digital Input||A – Obstruction detected.|
|Set CW||Digital Output||Sets rotation of motor clockwise.|
|set CCW||Digital Output||Sets rotation of motor counter-clockwise.|
|Check Position||Digital Output||A pulse on this output polls the current position of the motor. This updates the analogue input for motor position.|
|Set end stops||Digital Output||Output for learning the end positions|
In the Device properties it is possible to determine what type of blinds/curtains are being used.
SETTING END POSITIONS
After the motor has been connected and learnt in, the end positions have to be set to ensure correct operation.
Depending on the installation position of the tubular motor the direction of rotation may be different to drive the blinds up / down. For this reason the outputs are labeled CW and CCW (clockwise and counter clockwise), when learning the end positions the blinds should initially be put in a central position, so that they can be driven in either direction without encountering an obstacle and potentially damaging the blinds.
For the end position teach-activate the app service mode (App Version> 6.1.1 17/02/2016 necessary)
If the end position is reached save “save end position” this means.
First, the lower end position must be set, then the upper. To this end the service mode of the Loxone smart home is to use app
Each end position can be learned independently of the other, with or without mechanical stop. If an end position with stop be learned, one drives the tubular motor via this end position beyond and leaves the torque monitoring detect the end position.
The motor confirms learning the lower end position with “click-click”, the upper end position and thus the end of the end position storing is confirmed with “clack-clack-clack-clack”. Between learning the lower end position and the learning of the upper end position you have 2 minutes, otherwise the previously set values are restored (or the factory default) – in this case, the tubular motor shall set out “clack-clack-clack-clack-ratchet expander click “with.
the end positions have been taught, the service mode will be completed in the app.
Would you like to teach the end positions again, so you can start the learning process again by switching the motor from the supply, after the voltage returns within 30 minutes of the service mode can be activated again. The end positions can now be taught as described above again.
Please note that on delivery no end positions are set in the motor.
PROGRAMMING IN LOXONE CONFIG
Within the configurator use the SolidLine air with the automatic blinds block.
The only output required is AQpp connected to the command output of your SolidLine air. All necessary information is sent to the blind via this output. What appears in the app can be defined using the T parameter in the automatic blinds block. i.e. curtains, blinds or shutters. More information about the automatic blinds program block can be found here.
