power outputs on bus modules can be dimmed or operated
as a switch, depending on the respective setting in the
Outputs are switched only during zero crossings on the AC power curve. The
benefit is the conservation of recourses, that is, bulbs are not switched on
during voltage peaks etc.
power varies from 2 x 150VA to 2 x 2kVA, depending on the used
module. A relay block can be connected for switching higher
loads up to 16A.
Each output is set with 2 parameters:
brightness level is a number between 0 and 200. In other words, brightness
level is divided into 200 steps.
The slope is a time factor and sets the time required for the dimmer to reach
the desired dim-value.
However, if the output is set to switch mode, the slope merely indicates the
time until the output is switched on. Plus-Modules,
such as LCN-HU
have been designed with added memory space and firmware.
One added feature includes the capability to save the brightness settings of
each output. Up to 100 different settings can be stored for each output!
