1        Function
The power supply provides the energy for the bus devices on a line. At least one power supply
is required per bus line.
The power supply (PS) generates a stabilised safety extra-low voltage (SELV) of DC 29 V ± 1 V.
The maximum output current is 320 mA. When the bus devices are evenly distributed on the
line, it is possible to operate up to 64 bus devices (DVC) using the standard current
consumption of 5 mA on one line. The maximum cable length between the power supply and
the furthest bus device is 350 m.
The bus devices on the connected line can be reset via a slide switch on the power supply
(located under the hinged lid next to the bus terminal, from version 1A onwards). The status
(RESET) is indicated via the red LED (RESET) on the device.
The disconnection of a line (RESET) should take at least 30 seconds.
The bus voltage is connected to the system by setting the slide switch to the “ON” position. The
green LED (RUN) indicates whether the power supply is ready for operation. In the event of a
mains failure, the bus voltage is supplied by the lead gel battery (order no. 6689 90) which is
connected to the emergency power input. The battery operation is indicated by the yellow LED
(AKKU) on the device. During mains operation, the battery is recharged via an integrated
charging circuit.
If the output current becomes excessive, the red overcurrent LED (I>Imax) lights up or flashes. If
a short circuit occurs between the red and black conductors of the bus cable, the green (RUN)
and/or yellow (AKKU) LEDs are extinguished.
Once the short circuit has been rectified, the power supply must be switched to the
RESET state for approx. 5 seconds.

2      Installation
The INSTABUS power supply is mounted on a DIN rail according to EN 50022-35. A data rail is
not required. The bus connection is carried out via a bus connecting terminal which is supplied
with the device. The cable shrouding is then inserted over the bus connecting terminal to
guarantee the safety clearance of the bus cable to the 230 V cables. A maximum of 4 core pairs
can be connected to a bus connecting terminal. All the devices that are installed in the vicinity of
the power supply must at least be equipped with basic insulation.
Connection of the power supply REG-K




The mains connection is carried out via plug-in screw terminals. The cable can be screwed onto
the plug-in terminal before installing the device and then inserted at a later stage.
The external 6-15 Ah lead gel battery (e.g. order no. 6689 90) is connected to the 12 V
emergency power input via a plug-in screw terminal (polarity must be observed). Loads that
draw more current than the charge retention current of the power supply may not be connected
to the 12 V battery.
The 12 V DC cable should be protected by a series-connected miniature circuit-breaker. An
                         2
NYM cable with 1.5 mm must be fused with 6 A. If the second core pair of the bus cable is
used, it should be fused with max. 2.5 A.

5.1 Application: Coupler 7111 version 1


1      Function
The INSTABUS coupling unit is used to link and extend lines and areas (line and backbone
couplers). It acts as a filter and only lets data telegrams through that are intended for bus
devices on other lines.
To guarantee the full functionality of the coupling unit in ETS2, it is necessary to use ETS
version 1.1 and service release A. Service release A can be obtained free of charge from
EIBA via the Internet at http://www.eiba.be. Lines can also be electrically isolated using
couplers. It is possible to link up to 12 INSTABUS lines, each with 64 bus devices, to form an
area. Up to 15 areas can be interconnected using the coupler and combined into a complete
system. If version 1.36 onwards of the ETS software is used, the coupler can also be used as a
line repeater. Several program functions are also only effective from version 1.36 onwards.
The decision as to whether a line coupler, backbone coupler or a line repeater is used is
determined by the programmed physical address:

Physical address:        x . 0 . 0 = backbone coupler
                         x . y . 0 = line coupler
                         x . y . 64 = line repeater
(x = area, y = line)

The following operating and display elements are located at the front of the coupling unit:
-     a push button for programming the physical addresses
-     a red LED for checking the programming procedure
-     a green LED for operational display
-     two yellow LEDs which indicate that a telegram has been received on the respective line


2      Installation
The coupling unit is mounted on a DIN rail according to EN 50022-35 x 7.5 with a data rail glued
inside. The device does not require a separate bus coupling unit. The primary line (main or
backbone line) is connected to the device via a bus connecting terminal. The hierarchically
subordinate line is linked to the data rail via pressure contacts.
-      Each line (even the amplified line) as well as the main or backbone line requires a
       separate power supply with choke.
-      The two voltage supplies must be applied with the correct polarity prior to programming
       (check for polarity reversal of the main or backbone line as otherwise undefined effects
       may arise).

Application                   Vers.   Function
Coupler 7111                  1       The filter properties of the coupling unit
                                      can be programmed with the
                                      application. From ETS 1.36 onwards,
                                      the device can be programmed as a
                                      line repeater.

5.1 Application: Coupler 7111 version1
Notes for commissioning:
-     In a system with several lines, the physical addresses of the couplers must be assigned
      first of all so that it is possible to program the applications in the individual bus devices
      from a central location.
-     When assigning the physical address, it is important to press the programming button of
      the coupler that has been mounted on the data rail belonging to the line that has been
      retrieved.
-     The physical address of the data interface connected to the PC/laptop must belong to the
      line that it has been connected to. By selecting the option “Set local address” in the menu
      “Options / PC options” of ETS, the physical address of the interface can be checked or
      modified.
-     The filter function of the group addresses can be set or modified in the application
      “Coupler 7111 version 1”.
-     An additional function “Filter table” appears in the “Commissioning/Test” window in ETS.
      If this function is selected, ETS calculates the filter table for the selected coupler from the
      project data. The programming of the filter table can take several minutes. The stored
      filter table is not deleted or modified even if the application “Coupler 7111 version 1” has
      been loaded into the device with modified parameters at a later stage.
-     If changes are made to group addresses during the course of commissioning which affect
      lines or areas, the filter tables of the respective couplers must be reloaded (e.g. central
      OFF function or visualisation).
-     If products (information panel, SUCOnet gateway) or programs (visualisation VTS) have
      been used that have been programmed directly with ETS, the group addresses used by
      these products cannot be taken into consideration when creating the filter table. These
      group addresses must be linked with the communication objects (in the applications for
      the SUCOnet gateway or the information panel). All the addresses of the same data type
      are then entered consecutively for the corresponding communication object. If there are
      several group addresses, it is possible to configure several applications.


Function
The following properties of the line/backbone coupler can be parameterised with the application:

• Filtering group telegrams
    Main line -> Line
In the parameter setting “normal”, telegram filtering or routing is carried out according to the
downloaded filter table.
In the parameter setting “lock”, no telegrams are routed from the primary line to the secondary
line.
In the parameter setting “pass on”, all the telegrams from the primary line are routed to the
secondary line.
Caution: All telegrams that are not acknowledged on the secondary line with a reply telegram
(ACK) from a bus device are repeated three times by the coupler. This increases the bus load.
The telegram repetition rate can be parameterised with ETS from version 1.36 onwards.
• Filtering group telegrams
    Line -> Main line
In the parameter setting “normal”, telegram filtering or routing is carried out according to the
downloaded filter table.
In the parameter setting “lock”, no telegrams are routed from the secondary line to the primary
line.
In the parameter setting “pass on”, all the telegrams from the secondary line are routed to the
primary line.
Caution: All telegrams that are not acknowledged on the main line/backbone line with a reply
telegram (ACK) from a bus device (also primary coupler) are repeated three times by the
coupler. This increases the bus load. The telegram repetition rate can be parameterised with
ETS from version 1.36 onwards.

• Checking the filter table
With this parameter, an error test program for the filter tables in the coupler can be switched on
or off.

• On error in filter table
In the parameter setting “pass on”, all the telegrams are allowed to pass through when there is
an error in the filter table.
In the parameter setting “lock”, no telegrams are routed when there is an error in the filter table.
In the parameter setting “ignore error”, the error in the filter table is ignored and the coupler
continues to function with the error in the table.

• Route main group 14 and 15
In the parameter setting “pass on”, the telegrams are routed with main groups 14 and 15.
In the parameter setting “lock”, the telegrams are not routed with main groups 14 and 15 of the
coupler.
It is currently not possible to configure both main groups with ETS.

• Telegram confirmation on the line/main line
The behaviour of the coupler for telegram acknowledgement can be set with this parameter.

The transmitting (first) group address of a communication object that should be read out across
lines with the function “Group Read” must also be entered in the filter tables of the
corresponding coupler. This point should be noted when using visualisation, an information
panel or display unit. If these products generate a “Group Read” telegram for a specific group
address, all the couplers must route the telegram except for the bus device that sends the reply.


Communication objects
The following communication objects can be selected:

5.1 Application: Speech module 8300/1 version 1


1      Function of the speech module REG-K
Up to eight different voice messages, warning signals or sounds of various lengths can be
issued via the loudspeaker output using the speech module REG-K. The maximum total length
of the acoustic signals is 105 seconds. The messages can be listened to, deleted and modified
for monitoring purposes. Other conventional sensors with floating signal contacts can be
connected via 4 integrated binary inputs. Corresponding acoustic signals can be emitted at the
location of the event itself or the device/loudspeaker can be installed at a neighbouring site
where silent alarms are triggered.
Many different application possibilities can be considered. You can for example use the device
in showrooms (trade fairs etc.) in order to greet the customers. A new customer can therefore
be “received” in the showroom with music or advice about products and services. This also
deters thieves as people entering the shop do not know whether they can be seen. The sales
staff can be notified simultaneously with the same message via a second loudspeaker. Using
motion detectors, customers at an exhibition for example can also be informed directly about
product benefits. In larger buildings, customers can be told while they are in the lift or on the
stairs where the office of the person they are coming to see is located. In stairwells, it is possible
to issue a message shortly before the staircase lighting timer elapses so that the user can
extend the time period if required by pressing a button. Since it is possible to record more than
pure voice messages, short melodies or frightening noises (e.g. dogs barking) can also be
transmitted, depending on the application.

Recalling and acknowledging messages
The device has stored 8 pre-programmed messages. Messages 1-4 can therefore be
addressed via the 4 inputs for floating contacts or via a 1 bit telegram. Messages 5-8 can only
be triggered via the INSTABUS EIB.
The following messages are pre-programmed:

No.          Recall via                           Stored messages
M1           Contact on input E1 or button        Channel 1 has responded
             M1 on device or 1 bit telegram
M2           Contact on input E2 or button        Channel 2 has responded
             M2 on device or 1 bit telegram

             telegram
M8           Button M8 on device or 1 bit         Operation of the speech module (see
             telegram                             instructions)
M9           Buttons M1 and M8 on device          Message system is faulty
             simultaneously or in event of
             faulty cyclical monitoring

Operation
One button and one LED are assigned to a message. If no messages are issued (all LEDs are
switched off), the respective stored message is recalled with a short push button action (< 4 s).
By recalling a message via a 1 bit INSTABUS EIB telegram or via a floating make contact at the
inputs (E1-E4) on the speech module (flashing yellow signal LED), the corresponding message
is issued via the loudspeaker at set cyclic intervals until the request is withdrawn. If several
messages are present, they are issued consecutively. It can also be selected that the channel
can only be reset by an acknowledgement at the device and not by a telegram (“Locking”).
An active signal at the device is acknowledged with the respective button. In this case, the
channel display changes from a flashing light to a continuous light and the active message is
only announced once. Otherwise, flashing displays indicate active messages that have not yet
been acknowledged.
If faults occur during the cyclical monitoring due to the absence of telegrams from the monitored
sensor, the message of the defective channel is issued followed by “M9 = Message system
faulty”.

Deleting, recording, issuing
Before recording a new message, the previous message must be deleted. To do this, press the
channel button for more than 4 seconds. Channel buttons M1 and M8 must be pressed
simultaneously for the fault message M9. A short beeping noise is emitted. During the deletion
of this channel, all 8 channel displays flash. If the LEDs are no longer flashing, the deletion
process is complete.
To make a new recording, the channel button must be pressed again for more than 4 seconds.
The recording takes place after a short signal tone and continues for the duration of the push
button action. The recording process is completed by releasing the button.
105 seconds of talk time are available for all the messages in total. At the start of the recording,
a “memory location display” appears. The eight LEDs are all switched off when the memory is
empty. They are then switched on from left to right following the memory allocation. One LED
thus represents a recording period of 13 seconds. If all the LEDs are switched on, a residual
memory of 1 second remains.
For monitoring purposes, you can recall the message via a short push button action (< 4 s). In
this case, the message is only issued once.
2       Installation of the speech module REG-K
The INSTABUS speech module REG-K is mounted on a DIN rail according to EN 50022-35. A
data rail is not required. The bus connection is carried out via the bus connecting terminals
supplied with the device. The loudspeakers are plugged onto the speech module via the
yellow/white core pair of the bus cable with the yellow/white branch terminal supplied. The cable
shrouding is then inserted over the terminals to guarantee the safety clearance of the bus
cable/loudspeaker cable to the 230 V cables. A maximum of 4 core pairs can be connected to
the terminals.
The 1-15 loudspeakers (45 ohm impedance) can be distributed in the building and inserted in
flush-type boxes. The (parallel) wiring to the loudspeakers is carried out via the yellow/white
core pair of the EIB bus cable (a maximum length of 100 m is permitted). An acoustic short
circuit at the loudspeakers should be avoided during the installation to maintain a good level of
sound quality.
All the devices that are installed next to the speech module must at least be equipped with basic
insulation. The mains voltage and the integrated binary inputs are connected via plug-in screw
terminals to the speech module. The cables can be screwed onto the plug-in terminal before
installing the device and then inserted at a later stage.

Connection example:




Caution: Transposing the loudspeaker cable and the bus cable can lead to the device being
damaged.

Circuit diagram:




Messages M1 to M4 can be recalled with floating make contacts at inputs E1 to E4.

Caution: Transposing the loudspeaker cable and the bus cable can lead to the device being
damaged.
2.1 Installation of the M1 loudspeaker insert
The retaining ring supplied with the device is fixed with two screws to a 60 mm installation box.
The M1 loudspeaker insert with cover is connected via a yellow/white branch terminal (- white /
+ yellow) and snapped onto the retaining ring together with the required M1, Atelier/EPOCA
frame.
The loudspeaker insert must be completed with a frame.
Alternatively, the flush-mounted loudspeaker (order no. 6654 99) can also be connected. These
devices can for example be mounted in deep switch boxes behind INSTABUS EIB devices. The
installation of loudspeakers behind 230 V inserts is not permitted.

5.1     Application: Speech module 8300/1 version 1

Function
An acoustic signal, a push button and an LED are assigned to each channel. By briefly pressing
the channel button (< 4 s), the corresponding acoustic message is issued on the connected
loudspeaker. Channels 1-8 can be activated via bus telegrams while channels 1-4 can also be
activated via the external inputs. The LEDs are normally switched off.
All eight messages can assume the “Active” or “Inactive” state.

• Changing the state via binary input (EI-E4):
  The binary inputs react to pulse edges. A sending object “Message 1-4” is assigned to each
  input. The respective object can thus be set for both pulse edges to either be switched on or
  off. The object value which has been specified by the pulse edges can be sent cyclically on
  the bus. Cyclic times between approx. 1 second and 255 hours are available.
• Changing the state via telegram (M1-M8):
  In the case of messages that are triggered via telegrams (parameters for M1-M4: “Change of
  the object value through telegram”), it is possible to define the object value that leads to the
  activation of the message. The telegrams are received via communication objects 0-7
  “Message 1” to “Message 8”.
• Active state with cyclical acoustic output:
  If a channel is transferred to the active state, the channel LED starts to flash. If it is enabled,
  the corresponding acoustic message is issued via the connected loudspeaker and repeated
  cyclically at a set interval. By default, the message is issued each minute. The cyclic time
  can be set in a range between approx. 1 minute and 1 week.
• Enable/disable the acoustic output:
  The output of all messages can be stopped via communication object no. 9 “Release/lock”. It
  can be defined via the parameter which telegram value leads to the enabling of the acoustic
  message output via object 9.
• Resetting and acknowledging the active state:
  If the parameter setting “Reset of the message through telegram” is selected, the LED is
  permanently switched on if the message is still active by briefly pressing the channel button
  (acknowledgement) and the message is issued once again. A further (cyclical) output of the
  message via the loudspeaker is not carried out. The continued active state of the channel is
  signalled by the LED. All the active messages can be acknowledged with communication
  object no. 8 “Collective receipt”. It can be defined via the parameter “Collective receipt is
  ON/OFF active” which telegram value leads to the acknowledgement of all active messages
  via object 8.
  When the active object value is cancelled by a telegram, the message is reset even without
  a prior acknowledgement (LED off, message is no longer announced).
  If the parameter setting “Reset of the message through channel button” is selected, pressing
  the channel button only leads to the message being reset. Even if the trigger object value of
  the channel (telegram or external input) is retracted, the message output is not stopped until
  the message is reset by pressing the channel button. If the message is still active, pressing
  the channel button leads to the message being reset.
• Status feedback:
  If one of the eight channels is transferred to the active state, the device sends an “ON”
  telegram via communication object no. 10 “Status bit” e.g. to a display element (e.g. status
  LED). If all the messages are in the inactive state again, the “OFF” telegram is generated.
  The status telegram can also be sent cyclically.
• Deleting and recording messages M1-M8 and the fault message M9:
  The deletion and recording of voice messages (pressing the channel button longer than 4 s)
  can be enabled or disabled via this parameter. In the enabled state, messages 1-8 and the
  fault message M9 can be modified by the user. If the required acoustic messages are
  recorded, the individual messages can be protected from manipulation or modification by
  changing the corresponding parameter to “locked”.
• Cyclical monitoring: (only when changing the object value via telegram)
  The cyclic monitoring function observes the communication between a sensor and the
  channel that is triggered via a telegram. If “Cyclic observation” is enabled, telegrams from
  the sensor (e.g. binary input) are expected at cyclic intervals within the adjustable monitoring
  period. The monitoring period is calculated from the base value multiplied by a factor. If the
  device does not receive any telegrams from the sensor within this period, the channel is
  activated and the message is issued with the addition of M9 “Message system faulty”. The
  sensor must be able to send telegrams cyclically with a cyclic time that is shorter than the
  monitoring period.
• Read out input values on bus reset: (only when changing the object value via
  telegram)
  With the setting “Change of the object value through telegram” and the “Release/lock” object,
  it is possible to define for all the channels whether the corresponding switching state should
  be read after initialisation (RESET) (within approx. 30 s).
  For this function, it must be possible to read out the devices in the speech module that are
  linked via the group addresses. To do this, it is necessary to set the flags of the respective
  communication object (switch/status object) to “Read”. It is possible to combine several bus
  devices into a group via a common group address. In this case, the “Read” flag must be set
  for a single representative of the group.
  After a status response from the bus, the corresponding object value is updated. The
  message output is carried out according to the parameter settings “Activate the message
  through object value (1 or 0)”.

   Caution: All changes to the parameterisation of the speech module only become
   effective once the application has been downloaded and the 230 V supply to the
   speech module has been interrupted.

1       Function
The INSTABUS push button interface UP is a binary input device for insertion in combined wall
and joint boxes (∅ 60 mm).
Four inputs are available for floating switch/push button contacts. The required scanning voltage
is supplied by the push button interface (an additional power supply unit is required).
The push button interface UP is used for connecting conventional switches/push buttons.
It is therefore possible to connect up to four switches/push buttons, each with one floating
contact or up to two twin push buttons, each with two floating contacts.
The connection is carried out via an 8-core cable set (included with supply) which is attached to
the push button interface with a plug. The connection cables between the switches/push buttons
and the push button interface may not be longer than 5 m.


2       Installation
The INSTABUS push button interface UP is inserted 60 mm deep inside combined wall and joint
boxes with ∅ 60 mm. The box can hold a conventional device insert in addition to the push
button interface. Several wall and joint boxes are combined via tube connectors to hold several
conventional device inserts (only the switch box for locating the push button interface must be
60 mm deep). The wires of the supplied cable set can be fed through the tube connectors and
laid in the series-connected boxes.
The cable set consists of eight colour-coded wires which are fixed at one end with a plug. The
free ends are supplied with connector sleeves (see connection example) to enable a simple
connection to the screw or plug-in terminals of the switches/push buttons. The circuits of the
connected devices must comply with the conditions for safety extra-low voltage (SELV) in
accordance with DIN VDE 0100T410.
The bus terminal is plugged into the push button interface. The bus terminal (terminal block)
consists of two sections, each with four terminal contacts.

Note:
• The device may not be installed together with 230 V devices and/or 230 V cables in the
   same box.
• The device may be inserted in switch sockets if VDE approved devices have been used.
• The device may not be connected to 230 V.

5.1     Application: Bin. cyclic 1221/4 version 4

Function
A debounce time can be defined for all the channels. It can be set with one parameter for all
four channels whether the device generates an initialisation telegram per channel. Depending
on the level of input voltage, the telegram value is determined and sent based on the selected
pulse edge evaluation, send condition and cyclical sending. The binary input reacts to pulse
edges. An object is assigned to each input. The respective object can then either be switched
on, off or toggled. A reaction to neither or both pulse edges is also possible. The sending of the
object value can be influenced via the parameter “Send conditions”. The current object value
that has been specified by the pulse edge evaluation can be sent cyclically on the bus
dependent on the send condition for cyclical sending. Cyclic periods between approx. 650 ms
and 152 hours are available.

5.2     Application: Bin. long/short 1226/1 version 1

Function
A debounce time can be defined for all the channels. The contact type of the connected push
button can be specified for all four inputs together. The push buttons can be selected as make
or break contacts.
There is a choice between two operating modes per input:
The first operating mode distinguishes between a long and short push button action. An “ON” or
“OFF” telegram is sent depending on the length of the push button action. The interval for
detecting a short push button action can be set individually for each channel. This operating
mode enables direct control of bus devices using conventional push buttons. It can for example
be defined that a short push button action always switches off and that the lighting is only
switched on if the push button is pressed for longer than the set time.
In the second operating mode, there is no recognition of time. This operating mode is activated
with the parameter setting “Toggle”.
After each operation at the input, the last telegram is inverted and sent.

Function
Two different shutter groups can be controlled via the binary input using conventional push
buttons (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert). After a long operation of the rocker
(longer than set operating time), a “Move” telegram is generated by the “UP/DOWN” object. If
the button is pressed for longer than the set time, a “Step” telegram is sent via the “Slats” object.
The raising of the shutter is normally initiated by an “OFF (0)” telegram. It can be selected in the
parameters whether an “OFF (0)” or “ON (1)” telegram should be generated after a long or short
push button action. The debounce time, contact type and operating time can be defined for all
the inputs of the binary input together. When selecting the switch function, pressing the rocker
sends via the object “Slats (ON/OFF)”, whereby no distinction is made between a long and short
push button action.

5.4     Application: Dimming 2-gang 3521/2 version 2

Function
Two different groups of luminaires can be dimmed or switched via the binary input using
conventional push buttons (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert). After a long rocker
operation (adjustable operating time), a telegram is sent with the set dimming level. The
dimming level can either be sent once or cyclically, whereby the cyclic interval can be set
between 0.4 s and 2.0 s. One the push button has been released, a “Stop” telegram is
generated. If the push button is pressed for a shorter period than the set time, an “ON/OFF”
telegram is sent. The debounce time, contact type and operating time can be defined for all the
inputs of the binary input together.

5.5     Application: Dim./Blind 5521/2 version 2

Function
A group of luminaires can be switched or dimmed via the inputs E1/E2 with a conventional push
button (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert).
After a long rocker operation (adjustable operating time), a telegram is sent with the set
dimming level. The dimming level can either be sent once or cyclically, whereby the cyclic time
can be set between 0.4 s and 2.0 s. Once the push button has been released, a “Stop” telegram
is generated. If the push button is pressed for a shorter period than the set time, an “ON/OFF”
telegram is sent.
With a second push button (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert), it is possible to
control a shutter group via input C/D. After a long rocker operation (longer than the set operating
time), a “Move” telegram is generated via the “UP/DOWN” object. The raising of the shutter is
normally initiated by an “OFF (0)” telegram. If the push button is pressed for a shorter period
than the set time, a “Step” telegram is sent via the “Slats” object. It can be set whether an “OFF
(0)” telegram or “ON (1)” telegram is sent after a long or short push button action. The debounce
time, contact type and operating time can be defined for all the inputs of the binary input
together.

5.6       Application: Blind/switch 5523/1 version 1

Function
A debounce time can be defined for all the channels. The contact type of the connected push
button can be set for all four inputs together. The push buttons can be selected as make or
break contacts.
A maximum of two different shutter groups can be controlled via the binary input using
conventional push buttons (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert). After a long rocker
operation (longer than set operating time), a “Move” telegram is generated via the “UP/DOWN”
object. The raising of the shutter is normally initiated by an “OFF (0)” telegram. If the push
button is pressed for a shorter period than the set time, a “Step” telegram is sent via the “Slats”
object. It can be set whether an “OFF (0)” or “ON (1)” telegram should be generated after a long
or short push button action.
When selecting the switch function, a distinction is made between a long and short push button
action. An “ON” or “OFF” telegram is sent depending on the channel and the length of the push
button action. The period for detecting a short push button action can be set for a pair of
channels. The operating time is not evaluated in the “Toggle” setting. After each operation at the
input, the last telegram is inverted and sent. Combinations are also possible.

Function
A debounce time can be defined for all the channels. The contact type of the connected push
button can be defined for all four inputs together. The push buttons can be selected as make or
break contacts.

Channel A/B
One group of luminaires can be dimmed or switched via the binary input using a conventional
push button (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert) at channel A/B.
After a long operation of the rocker (adjustable operating time), a telegram is sent with the set
dimming level. The dimming level can either be sent once or cyclically, whereby the cyclic time
can be set between 0.4 s and 2.0 s. Once the push button has been released, a “Stop” telegram
is generated. If the push button is pressed for a shorter period than the set time, an “ON/OFF”
telegram is sent. In the configuration “dimming + toggle”, the binary input sends the inverse
telegram value via the “ON/OFF” object of input A/B after a short push button action. The object
can also be modified via another group.

Channel C/D
One shutter group or two switching groups can be controlled via the binary input using
conventional push buttons (e.g. twin rocker insert or shutter switch insert). After a long rocker
operation (longer than the set operating time), a “Move” telegram is generated via the
“UP/DOWN” object. The raising of the shutter is normally initiated by an “OFF (0)” telegram. If
the push button is pressed for a shorter period than the set time, a “Step” telegram is sent via
the “Slat” object. It can be selected whether an “OFF (0)” or “ON (1)” telegram should be
generated after a long or short push button action.
When selecting the switch function, a distinction is made between a long and short push button
action. Either an “ON” or “OFF” telegram is sent depending on the channel and the length of the
push button action. The interval for detecting a short push button action can be set for a pair of
channels. The operating time is not evaluated in the “Toggle” setting. After each operation at the
input, the final telegram is inverted and sent. Combinations are also possible.

1      Function
The INSTABUS binary inputs REG-K/4x230 and REG-K/4x24 convert binary switching voltage
(0 V/230 V or 0 V/24 V) into data telegrams. The binary input REG-K/4x230 is suitable for giving
bus capability to conventional 230 V devices such as a motion detector or twilight switch. The
binary input REG-K/4x24 can convert states from conventional 24 V devices such as door and
window contacts into data telegrams. The required scanning voltage must be supplied by an
additional AC 24 V or DC 24 V power supply unit. Each channel has an LED which displays the
input state. It can thus be detected whether voltage has been applied. A green LED indicates
the functional state of the program in the bus coupling unit.

2       Installation
The INSTABUS binary input REG-K/4x230 or REG-K/4x24 is a DIN rail mounted device which
is mounted on a DIN rail according to EN 50022-35. A data rail is not required. The bus
connection is carried out via the bus connecting terminal that is supplied with the device. The
cable shrouding is then inserted over the bus connecting terminal in order to guarantee the
safety clearance of the bus cable to the 230 V cables. All the devices that are installed next to
the binary inputs must at least be equipped with basic insulation.
The cables to the connected devices or output contacts are connected via plug-in screw
terminals. The cables can be screwed onto the plug-in terminals before installing the device and
then inserted at a later date. The binary input REG-K/4x230 has 6 terminals available: 2 x N,
E1, E2, E3, E4. The inputs can be assigned different phases. The N conductor must be
connected to the device.
The binary input REG-K/4x24 has 6 terminals available: 2 x (-) common potential, E1, E2, E3,
E4.
It is indicated via one LED per channel whether voltage has been applied at the input. The
green operational LED only lights up if the application program has been correctly loaded into
the device. The bus coupling unit is integrated in the device.

5.2     Application: Bin. Flanks 1205 version 1

Function
The binary input reacts to pulse edges. Two communication objects “Object A” and “Object B”
are assigned to each input. The objects can be set so that it is possible to send an “ON”
telegram, an “OFF” telegram, no telegram, the inverse telegram (Toggle) or the current object
value, both when the contact is opened and closed (push button). It is therefore possible to
send up to two telegrams to a pulse edge at an input. The device is ready for operation 17 s
after a bus reset.

Communication objects
The following communication objects can be selected:

  Obj        Function        Com. Objects           Type      Prio    Flag         Behaviour

1     Influence from movement detectors due to switched luminaires (optical feedback)

Switching the lighting from several locations or problems due to optical feedback
When luminaires that are installed in the detection range of a movement detector are switched
externally, optical feedback can occur. The temperature differential of the lamps or the change
in the infrared spectrum when luminaires are switched can be detected as movement by
passive infrared movement detectors. The detector carries out the pre-programmed functions
unintentionally.

Reasons for optical feedback:
- the movement detector is not installed in a favourable position
- a large number of lamps are being switched
- the switched luminaires become very hot or have an IR component

Optical feedback can be avoided by selecting the correct installation site for the
movement detector and the lighting.

The following project design examples cannot remove the physical effect but can prevent it by
selecting the correct parameter settings.


2        ARGUS controls a switch actuator with a staircase lighting timer and status
         feedback
Actuators that are equipped with a retriggerable staircase lighting function and a “Report-back”
object can be controlled by the movement detector using the application “ARGUS cyclical”.
If the lighting is to be switched from several locations or other devices, the preferred application
to use is “ARGUS cyclical”. The “Report-back” object informs ARGUS that the lighting has been
switched off. The set safety pause is started to avoid the lighting being switched unintentionally.

The use of several ARGUS movement detectors in the system is described in section 6 “Using
several ARGUS devices”.

Function
Cyclical “ON” telegrams are sent via the “Switching” object (in this case 5/1) while the ARGUS
registers movement. If a new movement is registered within the adjustable cyclic period, a
further “ON” telegram is sent once the cyclic time has elapsed. The “ON” telegrams switch the
actuator on for a further staircase lighting interval (parameter of the actuator). This process is
known as retriggering. The selected cyclic time must always be shorter than the staircase
lighting interval of the actuator.
The lighting is switched off via the staircase lighting function of the actuator.
The ARGUS registers via the “Report-back” object (in this case 5/13) that the lamp has been
switched off. Each further movement is then ignored for the set safety pause.
Parameters for the application “ARGUS cyclical”
- Cyclical sending is brightness-dependent (so that the ARGUS does not switch the lighting on
  when there is sufficient ambient brightness)
- Brightness value (approx. 5 to 1000 lux) is manually set at the device
- Cyclic time ≤ 0.5 x staircase lighting interval from the actuator
- Length of the safety pause is approx. 2 s (can be adjusted depending on the strength of the
  optical feedback)

Parameters for the actuators and minimum requirements
- Staircase lighting timer (retriggerable)
- Staircase lighting interval ≥ 2 x cyclic time of the ARGUS
- Reporting of the relay state (in this case 5/13)
- Staircase lighting timer with manual OFF function if the staircase lighting interval is to be
   ended prematurely via a group address (in this case 5/1 e.g. push button) or the staircase
   lighting interval of the actuator is to be started externally


3       ARGUS controls a switch actuator without a staircase lighting timer or status
        feedback
The application “ARGUS with timing function” is intended for combination with actuators that are
not equipped with a staircase lighting function or status feedback objects.
If the INSTABUS ARGUS is to be used as a conventional movement detector, a simple basic
circuit can be configured. The “Switching” object of the ARGUS is simply linked with the
“Switching” object of an actuator.

Function
If the ARGUS detects movement and there is an undershoot in the set brightness value, it
sends an “ON” telegram via the “Switching” object. This telegram switches the actuator on
(“Switching” object of the actuator). If no new movements are registered, the ARGUS sends an
“OFF” telegram once the staircase lighting interval has elapsed.
Once the “Switching” object has sent an “OFF” telegram, any further movements are ignored for
the set safety pause. This is necessary in case the ARGUS captures the light from the lamp that
has been switched by the ARGUS.
Parameters for the application “ARGUS with timing function”
- Detection of movement is brightness-dependent (so that the ARGUS does not switch the
   lighting on when there is sufficient ambient brightness)
- Brightness value (approx. 5 to 1000 lux) is manually set at the device
- The staircase lighting interval is manually set via a potentiometer or via parameters in ETS
- Length of the safety pause is approx. 2 s (can be adjusted depending on the strength of the
   optical feedback)
- OFF telegram is sent

Caution: Optical feedback
If a device other than the ARGUS switches the actuator, the optical feedback from the lighting
can be interpreted as a movement. This can lead to the lighting being switched on again by
ARGUS or being switched off again prematurely.


4      ARGUS as a staircase lighting timer with local operation
In the application “ARGUS with timing function”, the ARGUS can be forced to start the staircase
lighting timer without the presence of movement with the help of the “Trigger” object.




Function
An “ON” telegram to the “Trigger” object can be evaluated just as if the ARGUS had registered a
movement.
In the default parameter setting, an “OFF” telegram is sent to the “Switching” object once the
staircase lighting interval has elapsed. In the setting “Staircase lighting timer with manual OFF
function”, the staircase lighting interval can be ended prematurely via the push button.
Telegrams are only sent to the “Switching” object via the “Trigger” object if the locking function
is active.
It is also possible to select that the staircase lighting interval is not extended via the “Trigger”
object. In this case, the “Trigger” object only starts a staircase lighting interval if the preceding
interval has already elapsed (interval cannot be retriggered via the “Trigger” object).

Caution: Optical feedback
If a device other than the ARGUS switches the actuator, the optical feedback from the lighting
can be interpreted as a movement. This can lead to the lighting being switched on again by
ARGUS or being switched off again prematurely.
5      Disabling the ARGUS via the bus
With the help of the “Locking” object, the functions of the ARGUS or specific functional blocks
can be switched off via the INSTABUS. If the locking function is active, registered movements
are no longer converted into telegrams at the “Switching” object. The locking function also has
the same effect on the “Trigger” object (see “ARGUS as a staircase lighting timer with local
operation”).

Function
The locking function can be triggered by an “ON” or “OFF” telegram (in this case via the group
address 5/11) (“ON active” or “OFF active”).
The locking function is either immediately active (on initialisation) or only on receipt of the first
telegram at the “Locking” object.
By default, no “OFF” telegrams are sent via the “Switching” object when the locking function is
triggered (“send no OFF telegram”). If required, an “OFF” telegram can be sent on the bus
immediately after the receipt of a lock telegram (“send OFF telegram”). The “OFF” telegram is
however only sent if a staircase lighting interval is active.




In this example, if the ARGUS receives a lock telegram at the “Locking” object, it no long sends
any movement telegrams. By default, the locking function is triggered by an “ON” telegram (“ON
active”).

Example: Central push button with disabling of the ARGUS
If the “Switching” object of the push button (in this case 5/11) is linked in addition with the
“Switching” object of the actuator, a central push button is produced. In the example, the
actuator is switched on directly with an “ON” telegram from the push button and the functions of
the ARGUS are simultaneously disabled (the settings “ON active” and “send no OFF telegram”
are selected for the locking function). On receipt of an “OFF” telegram from the push button, the
actuator is switched off and the ARGUS is simultaneously enabled.
6      Using several ARGUS devices
In many applications, one movement detector is not sufficient to control the lighting in large
rooms or long corridors. In these cases, several ARGUS detectors must be connected together
to form a system. An optical feedback of the switched lighting can however lead to the lighting
being switched on unintentionally in these systems.

Example:
The light should be switched on in a long corridor when someone enters. This function must be
guaranteed at both doors. The light should remain switched on as long as someone is present
(moving) in this corridor and should only be switched off when the corridor is empty again and a
staircase lighting interval has elapsed.
The following installation example shows two ARGUS detectors that are located at the entrance
and exit of the corridor.


6.1    The detectors control switch actuators with a staircase lighting timer and status
       feedback
Several ARGUS detectors with the “ARGUS cyclical” application are linked with the “Switching”
object of the actuator with equal rights. The group address 5/1 is selected for this purpose. The
status feedback is carried out via the group address 5/13.

Function
If movement is detected, the corresponding ARGUS sends cyclical “ON” telegrams and thereby
switches on the retriggerable staircase lighting timer of the actuator. If a further ARGUS
registers movement, the preset staircase lighting interval of the actuator is likewise restarted.
The actuator is retriggered by all the detectors.
The status feedback group address 5/13 of the switch actuator is linked with the “Report-back”
object and the “Always-dark” object of the application “ARGUS cyclical”. The detectors are
informed via the “Report-back” object that the lighting has been switched off and the internal
safety pause is started.




Parameters for the application “ARGUS cyclical”
- Cyclical sending is brightness-dependent (so that the ARGUS does not switch the lighting on
  when there is sufficient ambient brightness)
- Cyclic time ≤ 0.5 x staircase lighting interval from the actuator
- “Always-dark” object is “ON active”
- Length of the safety pause is approx. 2 s (can be adjusted depending on the strength of the
  optical feedback)
Parameters for the actuators and minimum requirements
- Staircase lighting timer (retriggerable)
- Staircase lighting interval ≥ 2 x cyclic time from ARGUS
- Reporting of the relay state (in this case 5/13)
- Staircase lighting timer with manual OFF function if the staircase lighting interval is to be
   ended prematurely via a group address (in this case 5/11 e.g. push button) or the staircase
   lighting interval of the actuator is to be started externally

Connecting several actuators




If the ARGUS movement detectors switch more than one actuator, only one actuator may send
a status feedback telegram (master). Only this actuator requires a retriggerable staircase
lighting timer with status feedback. All further actuators are controlled via the status feedback
telegram (in this case 5/13) and their behaviour is synchronised with the master.

6.2     The detectors control switch actuators without a staircase lighting timer or status
        feedback
If switch actuators are used without status feedback or a time function, it is possible to combine
the applications “ARGUS cyclical” and “ARGUS with timing function”.

Function
Only the “Switching” object from the master ARGUS (a master is the device that executes
commands and controls the process) is linked with the “Switching” object of the actuator. In this
example, the group address 5/1 has been selected for this purpose. This ARGUS assumes the
function of the staircase lighting timer. The staircase lighting interval only runs in this device.
The application “ARGUS with timing function” is used in this case.
The other ARGUS movement detectors take over the function of so-called slaves. The
application “ARGUS cyclical” should be used for all slave ARGUS detectors. A slave has the
task of starting or extending the time function in the master (retriggering). The “Switching” object
of the slaves is therefore linked with the “Trigger” object of the master (group address 5/13). The
switching actions of the master are reported to the slave devices via the group addresses 5/1.
If a slave ARGUS is the first device to register a movement, it activates the master by an “ON”
telegram via the “Trigger” object. The master ARGUS in turn sends an “ON” telegram to the
actuator and switches it on. If the slave ARGUS registers further movement, the staircase
lighting interval of the master ARGUS is continually retriggered at cyclic intervals. The cyclic
time of the slave must be shorter than the staircase lighting interval of the master (see
parameters for the master). If a movement takes place in front of the master, the staircase
lighting interval is retriggered directly. When the master switches off the lighting, the safety
pause is started for the slave devices via the status feedback.
Local push button
The slave movement detectors (“ARGUS cyclical” application) only send “ON” telegrams. If
required, the master can be supplemented with a local push button. A connection between the
push button and the “Trigger” object of the master ARGUS is created for this purpose (in this
case 5/13). This function is described in section 4 “ARGUS as a staircase lighting timer with
local operation”.




Parameters for the master with the application “ARGUS with timing function”
- Movement detection is brightness-dependent (so that the ARGUS does not switch the
   lighting on when there is sufficient ambient brightness)
- Brightness value (approx. 5 to 1000 lux) is manually set at the device
- The staircase lighting interval ≥ 2 x cyclic time from slave
- Interval can be retriggered via movement
- Interval can be retriggered via “Trigger” object
- Length of the safety pause is approx. 2 s (can be adjusted depending on the strength of the
   optical feedback)
- “OFF” telegram is sent
Parameters for the slaves with the application “ARGUS cyclical”
- Cyclical sending is brightness-dependent (so that the ARGUS does not switch the lighting on
   when there is sufficient ambient brightness)
- Cyclic time ≤ 0.5 x staircase lighting interval from the master
- “Always-dark” object is “ON active”
- Length of the safety pause is approx. 2 s (can be adjusted depending on the strength of the
   optical feedback)

of approx. 16 m. Registered movements can be converted into telegrams. The yellow function
LED lights up when movement has been detected, if the corresponding parameter setting has
been selected. The LED can also be switched off.
The device is fitted with a light sensor whose brightness threshold can be set between 3(5) and
1000 lux. Depending on the application, it is also possible to use the device as a twilight switch
or to link the brightness threshold with the detection of movement. Several ARGUS 220
detectors can be combined in a system.

• Monitoring area:
The ranges indicated are based on average ratios at a mounting height of 2.50 m and should
therefore be considered as guidelines. The range can fluctuate considerably in the event of
variable temperatures.
A Inner security zone with a monitoring area of 360° and a radius of approx. 4 m
B Central security zone with a detection angle of 220° and a monitoring area of approx.
   7 m x 14 m
C Outer security zone with a detection angle of 220° and a monitoring area of approx.
   16 m x 24 m


2    Installation
A Mounting height: between 2 m and 3 m, optimum height is 2.5 m (on firm and even base)
B Distance from sources of optical interference: approx. 5-6 m
C Distance from switched luminaire: at least 5 m, otherwise sector covers are used
  Lamps should be mounted above the ARGUS detector and not below it

The installation should be carried out sideways to the direction of travel to enable the
optimum detection of movement.

•   Installation site:

Protected installation site:
The ARGUS has the protection type IP 55. To avoid the lighting being switched on due to
environmental influences, the ARGUS should if possible be mounted so that it is protected
against rain and direct sunlight (raindrops running over the lens for example can activate the
movement detector).

Attaching several ARGUS detectors:
To ensure full monitoring capability, the paths of the beams from the individual movement
detectors should intersect each other.
• Wall/ceiling mounting:
For ceiling installation, the terminal box should be rotated 180° to the right (the direction of
rotation must be changed at the end stops).

• Drain hole for condensation:
Depending on the environmental conditions (e.g. the occurrence of air humidity) and the
installation site of the ARGUS, a condensation drain hole must be opened. The ARGUS has two
openings for condensed water. Depending on the installation site (wall/ceiling), the lower drain
hole is cut out with a knife.

Explanation of the symbols:
“Correct”             “Not optimum”                 “Incorrect”

• Attaching wall-mounted boxes:
Once the circuit has been interrupted with the miniature circuit-breaker, the connection cable
can be inserted into the terminal box either from behind, from above or from underneath
(arrows). The wall-mounted box is installed in the intended location using the screws supplied.

• Electrical connection:
The stripped connection cables are plugged into the bus connecting terminal. Through wiring to
other INSTABUS devices is permitted. The correct polarity should be ensured.
The red bus cable (+) is inserted in the red element of the bus connecting terminal while the
black bus cable (-) is plugged into the dark grey element.
Note:
A conductor is removed from the bus connecting terminal by simultaneously pulling and rotating
the conductor.

• Mounting the top section of the ARGUS detector:
After a successful connection, the top section is placed onto the terminal box and fixed in place
with the screws supplied. The sensor head is aligned with the monitored area.
Note:
Before the screw caps are placed on the screw holes, the movement detector is tested to
determine if it is functioning correctly.
The screw caps can be damaged when they are removed.

• Functional and operating elements:
The operating elements of the ARGUS are protected under the sliding cap. The set values can
be read at the bottom of the rotary regulator.
The cap is opened by moving it upwards by approx. 1 cm at an angle of 45°. Once the setting
has been carried out, the cap is closed again.

Programming:
A Load the physical address and application into the ARGUS using the EIB Tool Software
   “ETS 2”.
B Programming area for the magnets. When assigning the physical address, guide the
   magnets (programming magnet, order no. 6391 90) over the area provided
C Programming LED (red). During the assignment, the red LED lights up. It is extinguished
   again if the physical address has been downloaded successfully

Setting the ARGUS for functional testing:
A Sensitivity: maximum setting (right stop)
B Brightness: select day mode (right stop, sun symbol at the bottom) or the setting “brightness
   independent” in the software
C Time setting: select the shortest period. Depending on the application program, the time is
   either set in the software or at the adjusting screw
D Functional display (yellow): lights up after each detection of movement. The LED can be
   switched on or off via the software
E Brightness sensor: may not be covered
• Aligning the ARGUS:
Align the sensor head with the monitored area (the direction of rotation should be changed at
the end stops) and check whether the ARGUS switches the load and the functional display by
walking from the edge into the monitoring area.

• Settings:

Sensitivity setting:
The range of the ARGUS can be reduced to approx. 40% via the sensitivity setting.

Brightness setting:
The brightness threshold can be infinitely adjusted in a range between approx. 3 lux (polar
white) or 5 lux (dark brazil) and 1000 lux. In day mode (sun symbol at the bottom), the ARGUS
switches after each movement, regardless of the external brightness.
In night mode (moon symbol at the bottom), the ARGUS only reacts below 3(5) lux (darkness).

Time setting:
It is possible to set the “Overshoot time” of the connected loads with the time setting. The
overshoot time starts after the last detected movement.
Depending on the selected application program, the time is either set in the software (variable
between 3 seconds and 152 hours) or directly on the ARGUS (in 6 steps from approx. 1 second
to approx. 8 minutes).
Note:
Once the load has been switched on, the twilight switch is ignored. Depending on the parameter
settings in the software, each registered movement can start the time sequence from the
beginning. If the movement detector no longer switches off, it is probably because the ARGUS
is continually detecting new movements and extending the time.

Masking out individual areas:
Using the supplied sector covers, unwanted zones and sources of interference can be shielded
from the detection area. Each sector cover masks an area of 60° and is divided into 3 fields of
20° each.
These fields can be separated individually:
A Twilight switch
   The twilight switch may not be covered at the front as the sensitivity to light is otherwise
   reduced (opening provided in the sector cover).

5.1   Application: ARGUS with timing function 1320/1 version 1

Function
This application is intended for the ARGUS in connection with actuators that are not provided
with a staircase lighting function or a “Report-back” object.
The application “ARGUS with timing function” has 5 communication objects:
-    Switching object (no. 0)
-    Locking object (no. 1)
-    Always-dark object (no. 2)
-    Trigger object (no. 3)
-    Brightness object (no. 4)
The interaction between the communication objects and parameters is depicted in the following
block diagram:

Block diagram:




The application “ARGUS with timing function” offers diverse setting options for sophisticated
applications. The interaction of various communication objects is decisively influenced by the
parameter settings.

•    Movement-dependent switching:
As soon as the ARGUS registers a movement, it sends an “ON” telegram, provided that the
following conditions are met:
-    The locking function (“Locking” object) is inactive.
-    The value is below the set brightness threshold (room is dark) and the parameter setting
     “Movement detection is brightness-dependent” is selected.
-    The set brightness value is exceeded (room is bright) and the parameter setting
     “Movement detection is brightness-independent” is selected. The “Always-dark” object
     has also been activated.
Once the staircase lighting interval has elapsed, an “OFF” telegram is sent, dependent on the
trigger mode and the movement.
•     Staircase lighting function:
If the ARGUS has been switched on after detecting movement, it switches itself off
automatically once the set period has elapsed. By default, the staircase lighting interval can be
adjusted via a potentiometer on the underside of the device (potentiometer setting).
Alternatively, a fixed staircase lighting interval between 1 second and 152 hours can be
selected in the parameter window.
When a new movement is detected, the set staircase lighting is restarted (parameter: “Retrigger
staircase lighting timer by movement detection”). In the setting “not possible to retrigger”, the
staircase lighting interval is not extended by movement. Telegrams that are received via the
“Trigger” object can also retrigger (extend) the staircase lighting interval, depending on the
selected parameters. It can be set whether it can also be switched off via the “Trigger” object
(with/without manual OFF function). The timer can also be ended prematurely on receipt of a
“Lock” telegram (“At receipt of a lock telegram” -> “send OFF telegram”).

•   Safety pause:
When a staircase lighting timer elapses, a safety pause is started once the “OFF” telegram has
been sent. The duration of the safety pause can be set between approx. 1 and 5 seconds. The
program does not carry out any activities during the safety pause. Incoming telegrams or
movements are only evaluated once the safety pause has elapsed. This is necessary if the
ARGUS captures the light generated by the lamp that it has switched. Due to the difference in
temperature caused when switching the lamp off, this action may be interpreted as a new
movement by the ARGUS (optical feedback). In this case, the safety pause is started even if no
“OFF” telegrams have been sent.

•     Triggering:
The staircase lighting timer can be started even without movement detection with the help of the
“Trigger” object. An “ON” telegram at the “Trigger” object starts the staircase lighting timer and
extends the staircase lighting interval if the parameter “Retrigger staircase timer by trigger
object” has been set to “retriggerable”. It can be set in the parameters whether the staircase
lighting timer is reset on receipt of an “OFF” telegram at the “Trigger” object (by selecting
“Staircase lighting timer with manual OFF function”) or whether the “OFF” command is ignored.
The “Trigger” object only influences the staircase lighting timer if the locking function is inactive.

•     Brightness-dependent and brightness-independent switching
The current brightness level is checked against the set brightness threshold when the
movement detector is in the “OFF” state. With a brightness-dependent staircase lighting
function, the ARGUS only sends an “ON” telegram via the “Switching” object (switch on) after
detection of movement, if the brightness value has fallen below the set brightness threshold of
the light sensor (room is dark).
The switching threshold can be manually adjusted at the rear of the ARGUS (between approx. 5
and 1000 lux).
This threshold can be avoided by describing the “Always-dark” object with the set telegram
value. It is possible via parameters to disable the influence of the light sensor on the “Switching”
object (brightness-independent staircase lighting timer).

•      Filtering of “OFF” telegrams:
It is possible to suppress the sending of an “OFF” telegram via the “Switching” object
(parameter: “OFF telegram is not sent”).

•     Sending the “Brightness” object:
A binary telegram is sent via the “Brightness” object when the set threshold value is achieved.
The switching threshold of the light sensor can be adjusted at the rear of the device between
5 lux (moon symbol) and 1000 lux (day and night mode, sun symbol). If the brightness falls
below the set value, an “OFF” telegram is sent if the parameter setting “not inverted” is selected.
If the brightness exceeds the threshold, an “ON” telegram is sent. The telegrams can also be
inverted.
•    Locking function:
The functions of the ARGUS can be disabled with the help of the “Locking” object. If the locking
function is active, any registered movements are no longer converted into telegrams at the
“Switching” object. The locking function has the same effect on the “Trigger” object. The
“Brightness” object also sends an overrange or underflow of the set threshold value when the
locking function is active. The locking function can be enabled via an “ON” or “OFF” telegram
(“ON active” or “OFF active”). By default, an “OFF” telegram is sent via the “Switching” object
when the locking function is triggered (“send OFF telegram”). The “OFF” telegram is only sent if
a staircase lighting interval is active. It can be defined via the parameters whether the locking
function is activated immediately (after RESET; initialisation) or only once the first telegram has
been received at the “Locking” object. The value of the “Locking” object (“ON active” or “OFF
active”) is taken into consideration in both cases.

•   Function LED:
The yellow function LED lights up as soon as a movement has been detected by the ARGUS.
The LED can also be switched off via a parameter.

5.2     Application: ARGUS cyclical 1311/2 version 2

Function
This application is suitable for use in combination with switch actuators that have a retriggerable
staircase lighting timer and status feedback. This application is particularly appropriate if the
lighting is to be switched off by several movement detectors. Cyclical “ON” telegrams are sent,
while the ARGUS detects movement. The device is switched off via the staircase lighting
function of the actuator.
The application “ARGUS cyclical” has 5 communication objects:
-     Switching object (no. 0)
-     Brightness object (no. 1)
-     Locking object (no. 2)
-     Always-dark object (no. 3)
-     Report-back object (no. 4)
The interaction between the communication objects and parameters is depicted in the following
block diagram:

Block diagram:
•     Movement-dependent switching:
As soon as the ARGUS registers a movement, it sends “ON” telegrams cyclically. The following
conditions must also be met:
-     The locking function (“Locking” object) is inactive.
-     The value is below the set brightness threshold (room is dark) and the parameter setting
      “Cyclic sending is brightness-dependent” is selected.
-     The set brightness value is exceeded (room is bright) and the parameter setting “Cyclic
      sending is brightness-dependent” is switched on. In addition, the “Always-dark” object
      has been activated or the parameter “Cyclic sending is brightness-independent” has been
      selected.
If the ARGUS does not register any more movement for approx. 5 s, it sends a final “ON”
telegram. “ON” telegrams are only sent via the “Switching” object. Once the ARGUS has
received an “OFF” telegram via the “Report-back” object, any further movement is ignored for
the duration of the adjustable safety pause.

•    Cyclical sending:
The cyclic time can be set between 10 s and 1.2 h. It should be ensured that the cyclic time is
shorter than the staircase lighting interval in the actuator (cyclic time ≤ 0.5 x staircase lighting
interval). A manual setting option (potentiometer) is not provided for the cyclic time.

•    Status feedback:
The switching state of the connected actuators can be evaluated via the “Report-back” object.
The ARGUS “Report-back” object is always linked with the status feedback object of the
actuator which switches the lighting in the room where the detector is installed. The cooling
down of a lamp could be evaluated as a movement by the movement sensor. The ARGUS
registers via the “Report-back” object that the lamp has been switched off. The adjustable safety
pause of approx. 1.5 to 5 s can then be carried out.

•    Safety pause:
When a staircase lighting timer elapses in the actuator (actuator with activated status feedback
function), the actuator sends an “OFF” as status feedback. After the receipt of this “OFF”
telegram via the “Report-back” object, a safety pause is started whose duration can be set
between approx. 1 and 5 seconds. The program does not carry out any activities during the
safety pause. Incoming telegrams are only evaluated once the safety pause has elapsed. This
is necessary if the ARGUS captures the light generated by the lamp that it has switched. Due to
the difference in temperature caused when switching the lamp off, this action may be interpreted
as a new movement by the ARGUS (optical feedback).

•     Brightness-dependent and brightness-independent switching
The current brightness level is checked against the set brightness threshold when the
movement detector is in the “OFF” state. In the setting “Cyclic sending is brightness-
dependent”, the ARGUS only sends “ON” telegrams cyclically via the “Switching” object (switch
on) after detection of movement, if the value has fallen below the set brightness threshold of the
light sensor (room is dark).
The switching threshold can be manually adjusted at the rear of the ARGUS (between approx. 5
and 1000 lux).
This threshold can be avoided by describing the “Always-dark” object with the set telegram
value. It is possible via parameters to disable the influence of the light sensor on the “Switching”
object (cyclic sending is brightness-independent).

•     Sending the “Brightness” object:
A binary telegram is sent via the “Brightness” object when the set threshold value is achieved.
The switching threshold of the light sensor can be adjusted at the rear of the device between
5 lux (moon symbol) and 1000 lux (day and night mode, sun symbol). If the brightness falls
below the set value, an “OFF” telegram is sent if the parameter setting “not inverted” is selected.
If the brightness exceeds the threshold, an “ON” telegram is sent. The telegrams can also be
inverted.
•    Locking function:
The functions of the ARGUS can be disabled with the help of the “Locking” object. If the locking
function is active, any registered movements are no longer converted into telegrams at the
“Switching” object. The “Brightness” object also sends an overrange or underflow of the set
threshold value when the locking function is active. The locking function can be enabled via an
“ON” or “OFF” telegram (“ON active” or “OFF active”).
It can also be defined via the parameters whether the locking function is activated immediately
(after RESET; initialisation) or only once the first telegram has been received at the “Locking”
object. The value of the “Locking” object (“ON active” or “OFF active”) is taken into
consideration in both cases.

•   Function LED:
The yellow function LED lights up as soon as a movement has been detected by the ARGUS.
The LED can also be switched off via a parameter. The parameter for the operational display
has no function.

5.3     Application: ARGUS 4-gang function 1312/2 version 2

Function
The ARGUS controls four independent, adjustable function blocks. Each function block
evaluates the movement, the brightness and a lock telegram. It can be established via
parameters whether a logical connection is carried out between movement and brightness or
whether the movement is always evaluated. The functions of each block can be disabled via an
adjustable lock telegram. Each block can generate a start telegram after movement detection
followed by an end telegram when the adjustable staircase lighting interval has elapsed. The
values of these telegrams can be freely selected. Blocks A-C generate binary telegrams (“0”,
“1”, “no telegram”) while Block D sends analogue values (“0%”, “100%”, “no telegram”). The
staircase lighting intervals can be defined between 3 seconds and 152 hours and also extended
(retriggered) by further movement.

•    Staircase lighting function:
As soon as the ARGUS registers a movement, each block can send a start telegram via the
“Switching” object, provided that the following conditions have been met for the respective
block:
-    The locking function (“Locking” object) is inactive.
-    The value is below the set brightness threshold (room is dark) and the parameter setting
     “Movement detection is brightness-dependent” is selected.
-    The set brightness value is exceeded (room is bright) and the parameter setting
     “Movement detection is brightness-independent” is selected.
An end telegram is generated when the adjustable staircase lighting interval has elapsed.
The values of the start and end telegrams can be freely selected. Blocks A-C generate binary
telegrams (“0”, “1”, “no telegram”) while Block D sends analogue values (“0%”, “100%”, “no
telegram”). The staircase lighting intervals can be defined between 3 seconds and 152 hours.
When a new movement is detected, the set staircase lighting interval is restarted (parameter:
“Staircase time is retriggerable”). In the setting “not possible to retrigger”, the staircase lighting
interval is not extended by movement. One the staircase lighting timer has elapsed, any further
movements are ignored for the duration of the adjustable safety pause. This is necessary if the
ARGUS captures the light generated by the lamp that is has switched. Due to the difference in
temperature caused when switching the lamp off, this action may be interpreted by the ARGUS
as a new movement (optical feedback).

•    Triggering:
The set staircase lighting interval is restarted when a new movement is detected (parameter:
“Staircase time is retriggerable”). In the setting “not possible to retrigger”, the staircase lighting
interval is not extended by movement.

•     Locking function:
The functions of each block can be disabled with the help of the “Locking” object. If the locking
function is active, any registered movements are no longer converted into telegrams at the
“Switching” object. The locking function can be enabled via an “ON” or “OFF” telegram (“ON
active” or “OFF active”). By default, the telegram that would have been sent when the staircase
lighting interval elapsed is generated when the locking function is triggered. This function can
also be disabled. It can be defined via a parameter whether the locking function is activated
immediately (after RESET; initialisation) or only once the first telegram has been received at the
“Locking” object. The value of the “Locking” object (“ON active” or “OFF active”) is taken into
consideration in both cases.

•     Brightness-dependent switching
The brightness can be linked with a logic AND function to the movement with the help of a
parameter (“brightness dependent”) i.e. the respective block only starts the staircase lighting
timer when the brightness falls below the set brightness threshold. The brightness threshold can
be manually adjusted at the rear of the ARGUS (between approx. 5 and 1000 lux). If a staircase
lighting timer is active, the brightness threshold is no longer evaluated; an active, retriggerable
timer would also be retriggered when the surrounding area is bright.
•     Safety pause:
If a staircase lighting timer elapses in a block, it sends the switching telegram that has been
selected for this event. It also activates the adjustable safety pause. This also influences the
remaining three blocks. The program does not carry out any activities during the safety pause;
this means that if a further staircase lighting timer elapses within a safety pause, a resulting
telegram can only be sent once the safety pause has elapsed. As a result, all the staircase
lighting intervals can contain inaccuracies.
The safety pause is necessary if the ARGUS captures the light generated by the lamp that it has
switched. Due to the difference in temperature caused when switching the lamp off, this action
may be interpreted as a new movement by the ARGUS (optical feedback).

•   Function LED
The yellow function LED lights up as soon as a movement has been detected by the ARGUS.
The LED can also be switched off with a parameter. The parameter for the operational display
has no function.

Application example:
Room with dimmable lighting, individual room temperature control and alarm monitoring. The
temperature is reduced via a time switch.
Block A and Block D control the lighting.
Block B is responsible for regulating the heating controller while Block C generates alarm
telegrams.

Block A:
The lighting is not switched on automatically. If no further movement is detected for approx.
25 minutes, it is automatically switched off. If a movement occurs during the staircase lighting
interval, this period is extended (retriggerable). The block is logically linked to the brightness.
The block is not disabled.

Block B:
Block B is enabled via the time switch for lowering the temperature, otherwise it is disabled. The
reduction is switched off via an “OFF” telegram after movement. If no further movement is
detected for approx. 30 minutes, it is immediately restarted (“ON” telegram). If a movement
occurs during the staircase lighting interval, the period is extended (retriggerable). The block is
not logically linked to the brightness.

Block C:
Block C is enabled via a push button for alarm monitoring, otherwise it is disabled. If movement
is detected, an alarm signal is sent by an “ON” telegram. A staircase lighting function is not
selected (“send no telegram”) and the alarm signal is thus stored. The alarm can then be
acknowledged via a push button. The block is not logically linked to the brightness.

Block D:
The lighting is not switched on via the 1 byte “Brightness” object. If no further movement is
detected after approx. 20 minutes (5 minutes prior to the lighting being switched off), the lighting
is dimmed to a brightness value of 10%. If a movement occurs during the staircase lighting
interval, the period is extended (retriggerable). The block is also logically linked to the
brightness. The block is not disabled.

In this way, up to four functions can be carried out by one movement detector.

5.4   Application: ARGUS 3-gang function 1313/1 version 1

Function
The ARGUS controls three independent, adjustable function blocks. Each function block
evaluates the movement, the brightness and a lock telegram. It can be established via
parameters whether a logical connection is carried out between movement and brightness or
whether the movement is always evaluated. The functions of each block can be disabled via an
adjustable lock telegram. Each block can generate a start telegram after movement detection
followed by an end telegram when the adjustable staircase lighting interval has elapsed. The
values of these telegrams can be freely selected. The blocks can either send binary telegrams
(“0”, “1”, “no telegram”) or 1 byte values (“0%”, “100%”, “no telegram”). The staircase lighting
intervals can be defined between 3 seconds and 152 hours and also extended (retriggered) by
further movement.

•     Staircase lighting function:
As soon as the ARGUS registers a movement, each block can send a start telegram via the
“Switching” object, provided that the following conditions have been met for the respective
block:
-     The locking function (“Locking” object) is inactive.
-     The value is below the set brightness threshold (room is dark) and the parameter setting
      “Movement detection is brightness-dependent” is selected.
-     The set brightness value is exceeded (room is bright) and the parameter setting
      “Movement detection is brightness-independent” is selected.
An end telegram is generated when the adjustable staircase lighting interval has elapsed.
The values of the start and end telegrams can be freely selected. The blocks generate binary
telegrams (“0”, “1”, “no telegram”) or 1 byte values (“0%”, “100%”, “no telegram”). The staircase
lighting intervals can be defined between 3 seconds and 152 hours. When a new movement is
detected, the set staircase lighting interval is restarted (parameter: “Staircase time is
retriggerable”). In the setting “not possible to retrigger”, the staircase lighting interval is not
extended by movement. One the staircase lighting timer has elapsed, any further movements
are ignored for the duration of the adjustable safety pause. This is necessary if the ARGUS
captures the light generated by the lamp that is has switched. Due to the difference in
temperature caused when switching the lamp off, this action may be interpreted by the ARGUS
as a new movement (optical feedback).

•    Triggering:
The set staircase lighting interval is restarted when a new movement is detected (parameter:
“Staircase time is retriggerable”). In the setting “not possible to retrigger”, the staircase lighting
interval is not extended by movement. If the “Trigger” object is described with an “ON” telegram,
a movement is simulated. The ARGUS then behaves as if there is a movement in its monitoring
area. This option can also be switched off via a parameter. If the “Trigger” object is described
with an “OFF” telegram, the safety pause is started.

•     Locking function:
The functions of each block can be disabled with the help of the “Locking” object. If the locking
function is active, any registered movements are no longer converted into telegrams at the
“Switching” object. The locking function can be enabled via an “ON” or “OFF” telegram (“ON
active” or “OFF active”). By default, the telegram that would have been sent when the staircase
lighting interval elapsed is generated when the locking function is triggered. This function can
also be disabled. It can be defined via a parameter whether the locking function is activated
immediately (after RESET; initialisation) or only once the first telegram has been received at the
“Locking” object. The value of the “Locking” object (“ON active” or “OFF active”) is taken into
consideration in both cases.
•    Brightness-dependent switching
The brightness can be linked with a logic AND function to the movement with the help of a
parameter (“brightness-dependent”) i.e. the respective block only starts the staircase lighting
timer when the brightness falls below the set brightness threshold. The brightness threshold can
be manually adjusted at the rear of the ARGUS (common setting for all three blocks) by a
potentiometer (approx. 5 to 1000 lux). If a staircase lighting timer is active, the brightness
threshold is no longer evaluated; an active, retriggerable timer would also be retriggered when
the surrounding area is bright.

•     Safety pause:
If a staircase lighting timer elapses in a block, it sends the corresponding telegram that has
been selected for this event. It also activates the adjustable safety pause. This also influences
the remaining two blocks. The program does not carry out any activities during the safety pause;
this means that if a further staircase lighting timer elapses within a safety pause, a resulting
telegram can only be sent once the safety pause has elapsed. As a result, all the staircase
lighting intervals can contain inaccuracies.
The safety pause is necessary if the ARGUS captures the light generated by the lamp that it has
switched. Due to the difference in temperature caused when switching the lamp off, this action
may be interpreted as a new movement by the ARGUS (optical feedback).
The safety pause is also carried out once an “OFF” telegram has been received at the “Trigger”
object.

•   Function LED
The yellow function LED lights up as soon as a movement has been detected by the ARGUS.
The LED can also be switched off with a parameter. The parameter for the operational display
has no function.

Application example:
Room with dimmable lighting and individual room temperature control. The temperature is
reduced via a time switch.
Block A and Block C control the lighting.
Block B is responsible for regulating the heating controller.

Block A:
The lighting is not switched on automatically. If no further movement is detected for approx.
25 minutes, it is automatically switched off. If a movement occurs during the staircase lighting
interval, this period is extended (retriggerable). The block is logically linked to the brightness.
The block is not disabled.

Block B:
Block B is enabled via the time switch for lowering the temperature, otherwise it is disabled. The
reduction is switched off via an “OFF” telegram after movement. If no further movement is
detected for approx. 30 minutes, it is immediately restarted (“ON” telegram). A 1 byte
temperature setpoint value can however be sent directly to the controller, dependent on
movement. If a movement occurs during the staircase lighting interval, the period is extended
(retriggerable). The block is not logically linked to the brightness.

Block C:
The lighting is not switched on via the 1 byte “Brightness” object. If no further movement is
detected after approx. 20 minutes (5 minutes prior to the lighting being switched off), the lighting
is dimmed to a brightness value of 10%. If a movement occurs during the staircase lighting
interval, the period is extended (retriggerable). The block is also logically linked to the
brightness. The block is not disabled.

In this way, up to three functions can be carried out by one movement detector.
It is possible to simulate a movement or activate the safety pause with an external push button
via the “Trigger” object.

5.5   Application: ARGUS alarm 1314/1 version 1

Function
This application has been specially developed for monitoring applications and has two different
function blocks:

Block A
For ARGUS Control monitoring system
Depending on the sensitivity setting, Block A reacts slower than normal i.e. it requires a
minimum number of slight movements or one large movement in front of the ARGUS. Slight
movement describes movement that takes place at a considerable distance from the ARGUS. In
contrast, large movements are detected in the direct vicinity of the detector. Block A sends
cyclical “OFF” telegrams without detection of movement and cyclical “ON” telegrams if it detects
movement The first “ON” telegram is immediately sent on detection of movement without
waiting for the set cyclic period.

Block B
This block is configured as a retriggerable staircase lighting timer. It sends an “ON” telegram
when it detects movement while an “OFF” telegram is sent after the last movement and once
the staircase lighting interval has elapsed.

Configuration of the blocks
The ARGUS has two physical inputs – the movement and brightness signal. These influence
both blocks. An evaluation logic is implemented in both channels for evaluating the movement.
This logic determines the value for the switching telegram that is to be sent. Each block can be
disabled by a common “Locking” object. The safety pause (only for Block B) should guarantee
that the cooling-down process of one of the lamps that is switched by this block is not
interpreted as a movement.

5.1 Application: Switch/Init 4347 version 1


1      Function
The INSTABUS actuator REG-K/4x230/16 with manual actuation is an intelligent relay with bus
capability. The device has four independent switchable relay outputs and enables the switching
of luminaires and other loads.
In the default setting, the make contact is closed immediately after an “ON” telegram and
opened immediately after an “OFF” telegram. It is possible to define OFF delays, a staircase
lighting timer (time switch) as well as behaviour after bus voltage failure and recovery after
programming.

2      Installation
The INSTABUS actuator REG-K/4x230/16 with manual actuation is a DIN rail mounted device
and is installed on a DIN rail in accordance with EN 50022-35. A data rail is not required. The
bus connection is carried out via the bus connecting terminal supplied. The cable shrouding is
then inserted above the bus connecting terminal to guarantee the safety clearance of the bus
cable to the 230 V cables. A maximum of 4 core pairs can be connected to the bus connecting
terminal.
The cables to the loads and the mains voltage (1, 2, or 3 outer conductors) are connected via
eight screw terminals. All the devices that are mounted next to the switch actuator must at least
be equipped with basic insulation. One yellow LED per channel indicates whether the switch
output of the channel should be opened or closed from the bus. The green operational LED only
lights up once the application program has been loaded correctly. The switch output (switched
outer conductor) can also be manually switched without bus voltage using the manual switch.
During manual operation, the yellow LED (controlled via the bus) and the relay state do not
match.

5.1     Application: Switch/Init 4347 version 1

Function
When the application is loaded, the following functions are possible per channel:

• Switching:
  Conversion of binary bus telegrams (EIS 1 telegrams) into switching states (relay open/relay
  closed).

• OFF delay:
  Switching off is carried out with a time delay. It is possible to assign delays between 0.8 s
  and 152 h for each channel. The selected periods are not retriggerable.

• Time switch function (staircase lighting timer):
  Once the device has been switched on, it switches itself off automatically after an interval
  which can be set between 0.8 s and 152 h. If an “ON” command is received before the
  device is switched off, the period is restarted. It can be set whether the device is switched off
  once an “OFF” command is received or whether the “OFF” command is ignored (with/without
  manual OFF function).

• Behaviour on bus voltage failure:
  When the voltage drops below the bus voltage of 18 V, the relays can assume the selected
  state. This switch position is simultaneously stored in the device.

• Behaviour on bus voltage recovery:
  When the bus voltage is applied or recovers, the relay is switched according to the
  parameter setting.

1      Function
The INSTABUS actuator REG-K/8x230 is an intelligent relay with bus capability. The device has
eight independent switchable relay outputs and enables the switching of luminaires and other
loads.

2       Installation
The INSTABUS actuator REG-K/8x230 is a DIN rail mounted device and is installed on a DIN
rail in accordance with EN 50022-35. A data rail is not required. The switch actuator is supplied
in a plastic housing with an integrated bus coupling unit. The bus connection is carried out via
the bus connecting terminal supplied. The terminal is located next to the programming button
and programming LED in the upper right hand corner of the device. The cable shrouding is then
inserted above the bus connecting terminal to guarantee the safety clearance of the bus cable
to the 230 V cables. Safety separation according to DIN VDE 0100 T410 must be complied with.
A maximum of 4 core pairs can be connected to the bus connecting terminal.
The cables to the loads and the mains voltage (L1, L2, or L3) are connected via plug-in screw
terminals. The cables can be connected to the plug-in terminals prior to installing the device and
then inserted at a later stage. The four channels A-D in the upper connector level have a
switching current of 10 A available per channel. Channels E-H on the lower level can switch a
current of 6 A per channel. The terminals may not be inserted under load. The switching
contacts must be protected by a corresponding 10 A or 6 A miniature circuit-breaker. All the
devices that are mounted next to the switch actuator must at least be equipped with basic
insulation. The green operational LED only lights up once the application program has been
loaded correctly into the device.

Caution:
The switch outputs have bistable relays. The switch contact of the output can change to the
conductive state due to vigorous vibrations during transport. When the mains voltage is
connected to the supply, voltage may be present at the outputs.
After commissioning, the outputs are transferred to the required position via a simple “ON/OFF”
switching operation using telegrams.

                                     logical connection with a “Logical”
                                     object


5.1      Application: Switch/Stairs/Logic 4402/1 version 1

Function
When the application is loaded, the following functions are possible per channel:

• Switching:
  Conversion of binary bus telegrams (EIS 1 telegrams) into switching states (relay open/relay
  closed) via the “Switching” object.

      Switching (make contact)
                     Switch on                               Switch off
• Behaviour as make/break contact:
  Each relay can be operated either as a make contact or break contact. The operating mode
  of the relay can be set via a parameter for each relay. On bus voltage failure, all the relays
  are opened (regardless of the selected operating mode). If channel A functions as a
  staircase lighting timer in the “make contact” mode, the relay opens for the set staircase
  lighting interval. The “Report-back” object of channel A always reports the actual relay state.

   Switching (break contact)
                  Switch on                                Switch off




• Logic function:
  With this functionality, the “Switching” objects of Channels A-H are logically linked with the
  common “Logical” object. A common AND or OR function can be assigned to all eight
  channels. The logic function can be switched on or off for each channel with the “Logical”
  object. It can be defined via a parameter whether the logic function is effective immediately
  or only once the first telegram has been received at the “Logical” object.

   AND function
   AND logic function, time of logical operation: after receipt of a logic telegram; relay: make
   contact




The logical operation only becomes effective once the “Logical” object of the switch actuator has
received a telegram for the first time.
AND logic function; time of logical operation: immediately; relay: make contact




Important:
The parameter setting “Logical operation’s point in time = immediately” causes the “Logical”
object to be set to the value “0”. After a RESET, a channel in the “make contact” mode and with
these settings will not switch the output until a “1” telegram has been received at the “Logical”
object.

OR function
OR logic function, time of logical operation: after receipt of a logic telegram; relay: make contact




The relay can only be switched off via the “Switching” object if a “0” telegram has been received
at the “Logical” object.
OR function
OR logic function, time of logical operation: immediately; relay: make contact




Important:
The parameter setting “Logical operation’s point in time = immediately” causes the “Logical”
object to be set to the value “1”. After a RESET, a channel in the “make contact” mode with
these settings can immediately switch the output on. The OR logic operation is only reset by a
“0” telegram to the “Logical” object.

The following functions can also be selected for channel A:

• Time switch function (staircase lighting timer) of channel A:
  Once Channel A has been switched on, it is automatically switched off after a period set
  between 0.8 s and 152 h. If an “ON” command has been received before switching off, the
  period is restarted. If the time switch function is selected, an ON delay can also be activated.
  It can be set whether the channel is switched off once an “OFF” command is ignored
  (with/without manual OFF function).

Staircase lighting timer without manual OFF function (make contact)
Staircase lighting timer with manual OFF function (make contact)




Staircase lighting timer with:
Make function                            Break function




• Status feedback of channel A:
  The switching state of channel A which has both a logic function and a time delay, can be
  sent via a separate communication object to a display element (e.g. status LED). This means
  that the status of the relay is available as a telegram on the bus after each switching
  process. The value of the “Report-back” object always reflects the current status of the relay.
  When the relay is closed, the value is “1” while the value is “0” when the relay is opened,
  regardless of whether a make/break function has been selected. After bus voltage recovery,
  a “1” feedback telegram is sent after 17 s via the “Report-back” object when the relay is
  closed. When the contact is opened, no telegram is generated.
  If the voltage drops below the bus voltage of 18 V, the relay drops out and remains switched
  off when the bus voltage recovers or is applied.

The LCD mini tableau is a central display and control unit for the INSTABUS EIB system. It has
a lit, user-programmable LCD graphic display with 240 x 128 pixels as well as 4 freely
programmable function keys which can be used to retrieve information about the current status
of the installation and to influence it.
The mini tableau MT 701 is a standalone EIB device with an integrated bus coupling unit.
Display text can be individually adapted to a particular application.

Basic functions such as
• switching
• dimming
• shutter control
• lightscenes
as well as extended functions such as
• valuator
• display of logic operations
• display of measured values
• threshold switch
are possible.

Project design and commissioning
The project design and programming of the mini tableau is carried out with the help of the
programming software EIBTAB from version 1.71 onwards via the RS 232 interface at the rear
of the housing.
A maximum of 50 screen pages can be produced with the EIBTAB. An internal real-time clock is
available for processing time functions. The user interface is freely configurable i.e. the display
text and function keys can be individually adapted to the application. It is possible to integrate
plan drawings. In the event of alarm signals or the setpoint value being exceeded, “POP-UP”
functions and/or acoustic signals can be generated.

2      Installation
The LCD mini tableau can be inserted above the flush-type box (order no. 6825 91) at eye level.
The design frame (order no. 6825 92) gives the mini tableau a sophisticated appearance. The
mains and bus cable are required at the installation site.
The mains cable is connected via screw terminals.
The programming of the required function is carried out with the EIBTAB via the RS 232
interface at the rear of the housing.

5.1 Application: 8 bit digits 4213/4 version 4


1      Function
In the field of room temperature control, electromotive valve drives are used for example on
heaters, radiators, convectors, heat distributors for underfloor heating systems, ceiling cooling
systems, ceiling heating systems as well as fan convectors and induction devices in two-wire or
four-wire systems. The device is suitable for installation on the base of thermostat valves.
During commissioning or after bus voltage recovery, the lifting position of the valve is
determined using an adjustment routine of the valve drive by moving it to the limit positions
(closed and fully open). The valve lift (4.5 mm) can be controlled in 255 positions via an 8 bit
variable. The motor switches off as soon as the required position (variable) is reached. Due to
the self-locking gear unit, the position is maintained even without motor power. When the
contact is closed, the positioning force is adapted to the base of the thermostat valve with
compressible sealed valve discs. The adjustment routine is carried out automatically after
approx. 4000 received setpoint values or adjustments of the drive and after each interruption of
the bus voltage. The current actual position and the status of the valve drive can be sent via the
bus.

2       Installation
The electromotive proportional EMO valve drive is directly connected to the INSTABUS. A
separate bus coupling unit is not required. An external auxiliary supply is also not required. It
should be noted that the positioning motor draws the same amount of energy from the bus as
two bus devices. The programming of the physical address is enabled with the help of the
programming magnet (order no. 6391 90) or another magnet. A red programming LED is used
for status display.
The maintenance-free drive operates at a low noise level. The compact plastic housing
encompasses the motor, gear unit, lift detection and the bus coupling unit. The valve drive can
be mounted on the base of all Heimeier thermostat valves. The bus connection is carried out
with the help of the bus connecting terminal (order no. 6897 01) via the 1 m connection cable
that is attached to the device.

Function
The EMO drive for heating valve is intended:
- for direct connection to the European Installation Bus
- for use in connection with flush-mounted / PI room temperature controllers (proportional
  controller with EIB capability)

•     Adjustment routine
If the valve drive is supplied with voltage via the EIB, an adjustment is carried out first of all on
the valve. The adjustment serves to determine the effective lift of the existing valve. The output
variable (0 to 255) supplied by the room temperature controller can then be allocated in
proportion to the ‘true’ lift range of the valve.
During the adjustment, not only the closing point but also the ‘disengagement point’ of the
plunger from the base of the valve (i.e. the ‘true’ valve lift) is determined. The output variable of
the controller is then assigned linearly to this ‘true’ valve lift.
To ensure that the actual lift position still applies after frequent changes in position, an internal
adjustment counter carries out the adjustment routine when a counter content is achieved. If the
parameter setting “Start of self-adjusting dependent on the number of received object values” is
selected, the device increases its internal adjustment counter by 1 via object 0 with each newly
received setpoint value, even if the setpoint has not changed. This setting should be selected
for cyclical communication with the controller so that the drive operates the valve at regular
intervals. This prevents valves from sticking together. If the parameter setting “Start of self-
adjustment dependent on the number of actual adjustments” is selected, the device increases
its internal adjustment counter by 1 after each adjustment to the current position.

It is therefore important to ensure that the EMO valve drive is screwed onto a valve when the
device is connected to the bus voltage. Adjustments that are carried out without a valve
cause a drive defect.

The adjustment routine is carried out if
- the device is connected to the voltage supply
- the preset number of adjustments is achieved
- the device has established a defect
- a reset has been initiated by the user (e.g. by reprogramming)

•    Setpoint position (variable)
A 1 byte value is received as a new setpoint position via communication object no. 0 (Input /
Variable). The 8 bit value is assigned in 255 levels in proportion to the valve lift. If the program
establishes that the object value has been overwritten, this is used as the new setpoint value for
the drive. If a positioning process has been initiated however, this process is completed before
the new value can be processed. The current position is designated as the actual value. The
direction of control of the drive can be set via a parameter. In the default setting, the valve is
closed by a telegram with the value “0” or opened by the value “255”. The behaviour can also
be inverted (0 = opened, 255 = closed). The variable that is selected after an adjustment routine
(bus voltage recovery/reset) or after an error in the cyclic communication with the controller can
be set via the parameter “Variable if no regulator exists”.

•    Actual position:
A 1 byte value for the current position of the valve can be read out via communication object
no. 1 (“Actual position / Variable”). If the valve is in the idle state, the contents of object 1 and 0
are identical. During positioning, object 0 contains the setpoint value while object 1 controls the
actual value. The setpoint/actual value comparison for stopping the valve is however derived
from the internal pulse counters.
•    Status signal:
A 1 byte value for the status signal can be sent via communication object no. 2 (“Operational
state / Status”) depending on the parameter settings.

Status signal:
Value = 0:                 Valve drive is in working order
Value = 1:                 Error in cyclical monitoring between the controller and valve drive
Value = 255:               Drive defect; adjustment error

If an error occurs during the adjustment in normal mode (e.g. the drive is unscrewed from the
valve or the valve becomes blocked), the adjustment routine is started four times. If the last
adjustment was also unsuccessful, this is interpreted as a drive defect.
The programming LED on the device can be switched on in the event of a drive defect
(flashing).
A drive defect can either be deleted by a reset (reset command at the bus or interruption of the
voltage) or by pressing the programming button (magnet). After the deletion, the adjustment
routine is restarted. If the adjustment is successful, no status telegrams with the value “0” are
sent.

•    Cyclical communication:
When the parameter “Cyclic surveillance time” is enabled, telegrams are expected from the
temperature controller at cyclic intervals within the adjustable monitoring period. If the drive
does not receive any telegrams from the controller within this period, the setting for “Variable if
no regulator exists” is initiated and the status signal is issued. The cyclic surveillance time must
be longer than the cyclical sending interval of the temperature controller.

•    Forced position:
A 1 bit telegram for forced positioning can be sent via the communication object (“Input / Forced
position”). If a “0” forced position telegram is received, the device adopts the contents of object
0 (setpoint value) as the current positioning value. If a “1” forced position telegram is received,
the setting for “Variable for priority object” is initiated as the positioning value. If a new setpoint
value is then received via object 0, it is ignored. The forced position has a higher priority than
the setpoint values. If window contacts with EIB capability are located above the windows near
the radiators, their telegrams can be linked with those of the forced position.

The following function arises:
- If the windows are closed, the telegrams of the room temperature controller determine the
  position of the valves
- If one or several windows are opened, the valves are set to the forced position value. The
  room temperature controller then increases the degree of adjustment due to the drop in
  temperature but cannot enforce it as the valve ignores this command
- If the windows are closed again (“0” is sent to object 3), the last value of the room
  temperature controller is adopted. Subsequent values of the controller are then converted as
  normal.

•    Changing the valve type:
The valve type should only be changed with the appropriate specialist knowledge or after
discussions with the Merten Infoline. It can only be selected under “High Access”. A
fundamental intervention in the internal programming of the valve drive is involved. It can
therefore no longer be guaranteed that the device will function correctly if the procedure is not
carried out by a specialist.

Thermostat valve
(Factory setting)
This setting is the default setting and covers the majority of valves on the market.
Optimised for HEIMEIER standard up to 1/2”
This setting should be selected if HEIMEIER standard valves up to 1/2” in size are used in the
heating system. An improved closing point detection process which is adapted to HEIMEIER
standard valves is used which leads to a better control result.
This setting may only be selected if it has been confirmed that HEIMEIER standard valves have
actually been inserted. It is otherwise no longer possible to guarantee that the valves will close
correctly.

Valves with linear marked line
This setting should be used for valves that have a linear flow characteristic.

•    Answers to frequently asked questions

The valve drive is flashing
If the valve drive is flashing, please ensure that the drive is screwed onto a valve as
adjustments made without a valve lead to a drive defect. This is a safety function to avoid
unnecessary movements. Once it has been mounted on a valve, the flashing should stop.
If the drive continues to flash once it has been mounted on a valve, there is probably a
mismatch between the valve and the drive. Please note the type and manufacturer of the valve
and if necessary install a suitable adapter. A list of suitable adapters for the majority of valves
on the market is included in this section.

The room is too warm
If a room is excessively warm, you should first of all ensure that the option “Flashing of the
programming LED in event of drive or valve defect” is switched on. This makes a clear fault
location possible. If the drive flashes, please refer to the information in the corresponding
chapter.
If the drive does not flash when the room is too warm, there can also possibly be a mismatch
between the valve and drive in this case. If the closing dimensions of the valve are too deep, the
drive is possibly not able to fully close the valve when the plunger is fully retracted (lower
mechanical stop) so that increasingly warm air is present. The use of a corresponding adapter
helps in this case (see also “Which valves is the EMO compatible with?”). Another reason for
the room being too warm is if the room temperature controller has not been adjusted. This can
be checked by comparing the actual temperature of the controller (reading out the group
address within ETS that is linked with the corresponding object of the room thermostat) and the
temperature of an external thermometer with the highest level of accuracy possible. If the actual
temperatures do not match, a temperature offset for the respective controller must be
programmed into the ETS2.
Another reason for an excessively warm room is the presence of dust particles in the heating
system so that the seal of the thermostat valves cannot close properly. Contact your heating
supplier in order to check the heating system.

The room is too cold
If the room is too cold, a malfunction of the drive is unlikely as the drive starts a readjustment
when a fault is detected and only remains fully open and flashes after several unsuccessful
attempts (please set the parameter “Flashing of the programmable LED in event of drive or
valve fault” to “ON”). If a malfunction had occurred, the room would be more likely to overheat. If
the room is too cold, the room temperature controller has probably been placed in an unsuitable
location or has not been successfully calibrated. First check the setpoint and actual
temperatures of the controller by reading out the corresponding group addresses and then
compare them with an accurate thermometer that has been placed in the middle of the room. If
there is a considerable difference between the temperature of the thermometer and the actual
temperature of the controller, you should calibrate the controller.
You should moreover ensure that the controller is mounted correctly. It is almost impossible to
guarantee that the device will function correctly if it is placed near heat sources or in areas
which are exposed to draughts.
To exclude a drive fault, you can preassign the positioning value to the drive by sending a value
(e.g. “255” = fully opened) in the group address which is linked with object 0 of the drive. The
heating system should then warm up after a certain period. (Note that a heating system is slow
to act and changes can take some time).
Tip: Remove the corresponding room temperature controller from the bus coupling unit as the
controller otherwise overwrites the positioning value that you have sent (cyclical sending of the
controller).

Which valves is the EMO compatible with?
The valve drive is compatible with all HEIMEIER thermostat valves and with a number of valves
from other manufacturers using adapters. Due to unforeseeable technical changes, the valve
manufacturer cannot however take on a guarantee of functionality. It is extremely important to
select the correct adapter for the specific application. The following table should provide some
guidance. If you have any further questions or uncertainties, please contact our Infoline. You
can also enquire about the latest adaptation options.
