TYPE OF DIMMING
Trailing Edge Dimming:
- High-voltage halogen lamps
- Low-voltage halogen lamps with electronic transformer
- Mains 230V LED
Leading Edge Dimming:
- Low-voltage halogen lamps with conventional transformer
When using phase dimming on mains LEDs and other transformer based loads large peaks in current can be generated at start-up this is known as inrush current and is caused by inductive or capacitive loading.
We reccomend not using Leading Edge Dimming for incandescent lamps, since this leads to high starting / inrush currents and loads the output stage unnecessary. At excessively high starting currents it is possible to damage the output of the Nano Dimmer.
The we offer LED retrofit lamps were tested by us and work with our dimmers properly. When using retrofit bulbs from other manufacturers aim in principle to use the dimming types suggested for the above reasons.
Some LED retrofit lamps can be operated with the Leading Edge, but it must be ensured that no current peaks occur and the dimmer does not overheat. We can not accept any liability for compatibility with other LED retrofit bulbs.
Care must be taken prior to commissioning that no output short circuit is created, otherwise the output can be damaged or the internal fuse would trigger. When changing lamps/bulbs always switch off the electricity supply for personal security and safety reasons.
LOXONE TOUCH FOR NANO
For the Nano Dimmer Air there is the Loxone Loxone Touch and Touch Pure for Nano. These provide Loxone touch capability to the Nano Dimmer by piggybacking off the Air Technology within the device.
If you are using the Loxone Touch for Nano, you need to select this in the properties of the Nano Dimmer Air.
The touch points may be used in the Loxone Config as individual digital inputs, these can be added to the periphery via the properties of the touch.
To use long-clicks, the “Receive Timeout” property must be set to 0 (not used) or a correspondingly large value must be set in the properties of the device in (higher than maximum click duration) . This value can be set separately in the properties for each digital input of the device.
Please note that the Nano Dimmer Air only has a single output channel, but two terminals for connections.
The Nano Dimmer Air is not suitable for low voltage or DC applications, but only 230V AC. The terminals are rated for currents of up to 10A for looping cables in and out, but the dimmer channel is NOT. To avoid damage observe the maximum allowed load stated in the specifications at the top of this page.
