Nano Dimmer Air

The Loxone Nano Dimmer Air is used for the dimming of line voltage lamps, both conventional and electronic. Depending on the load, dimming can be controlled via forward phase or reverse phase 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 when replacing lamps, always disconnect the line voltage for safety reasons. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or 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.

Then follow the pairing procedure on the Air Interface.

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
Line 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
Line voltage LED lamps (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 line voltage dimmable!
If in doubt, the manufacturer of the illuminant 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 center 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.
