Wireless test kit

 

  1. Insert the test unit into IHC Visual by right-clicking on a location, e.g. ‘Garage’ and selecting ‘Products’ > ‘Special products’ > ‘Schneider Electric Wireless signal strength test equipment’ and click on ‘OK’.
  2. Select ‘Controller’ > ‘Link/test Schneider Electric Wireless products’.
  3. Highlight ‘Schneider Electric Wireless signal strength test equipment’ and click on the ‘Link’ button.
  4. Press ON on the test unit (I-key). In IHC Visual, check that a green tick appears in link status. Click on ‘OK’.
    Important: Do not click any more on the test unit. The remainder of the test will be controlled from IHC Visual.
  5. Click on the ‘Test’ button on the right in IHC Visual. After a short while, the test unit’s LED will illuminate. It will flash briefly about every five seconds throughout the test each time the signal is updated. You can now go round with the test unit in your hand and check the quality of the Wireless signal via the colour of the LED. The signal strength in RSSI can also be read in IHC Visual.
  6. When the test is complete, click on ‘OK’ in IHC Visual. The test screen will close and the test unit will switch off.
Link IHC products to function blocks:

Procedure

(The numbers 1-4 below refer to the numbers on the screendump above):

  1. In the installation window (on the left): Point at the sensor (input) that is to activate the function block. In this case, ‘Top left button’ on ‘Low current press switch’ in the location ‘Lounge’.

  2. Hold down the mouse button and drag the input over to the required input on the function block, in this case ‘Input, on/off’.

  3. Now point at the required output in the function block, in this case ‘Output for light’.

  4. Hold down the mouse button and drag the function block over to the physical output, in this case ‘Output in Light socket’.

Function block with scenario function

Amongst our function blocks for light control, you will find some with special outputs for scenes.

You connect such a function block’s scene output to several output products (sockets or light sockets with/without a dimmer switch). You can then activate a particular light setting with a single press of a low current press switch for example, :

 

 

  • As an input product, you can in principle select anything. Normally however you would select a low current press switch or a remote control.

  • As an output product, you can select the products that have a scenario output – indicated by

    The following products have outputs for scenarios:

    - All Wireless products with outputs (relay or dimmer function)

    - The dataline products ‘Light socket’ and ‘Socket’ under the group ‘Output’.

  • The scenario outputs of function blocks are also indicated by

Example of a scenario

We will use the upper key on the Wireless low current press switch ‘Switch 4-key’ to create two scenarios in a bedroom:

A press (top left) activates scenario no. 1, ‘Bedtime light’.

  • The Wireless product ‘Light socket dimmer 2-key operation’ (for ceiling light) is dimmed in five seconds to

    0% luminosity (off).

  • The Wireless product ‘Socket’ (for bedside light) is switched on.

A press (top right) activates scenario no. 2 ‘Get up light’, which includes the same two products:

  • The light socket output is increased to full strength in one second.

  • The socket is switched off.

The completed scene setup is shown below:


The procedure is:

  1. In the installation window: Insert the three Wireless products in ‘Bedroom’.

  2. Link the three products (In the menu bar: Select ‘Controller’ – ‘Link/Test Wireless’ – ‘Link all’).

  3. In the function window: Insert the function block ‘1.1.03. Get or save a scenario’.

  4. Right-click on the function block, select ‘Properties’ and rename it to ‘Bedtime light’.

  5. Drag ‘Press (top left)’ over onto the function block’s scenario output.

  6. Drag the function block’s scenario output over onto the light socket’s output and fill in the dialog box which automatically appears:



    Light level
    : Using the arrow key, set this to 0% (off).
    Ramp time: The adjustment to 0% should take one second.

  7. Drag the same function block’s output over onto the socket’s output ‘Scenarios’.
    a) In the dialog box that appears, set the socket to ON.
    b) We have now created the scenario ‘Bedtime light’. In the corresponding way, we create ‘Get up light’ with the same function block, where we set

    - the dimmer to: Light level: 80%, ramp time: 5 seconds.
    - the socket to OFF.

Save scenario

This input on the scenario function block is used to save a set scenario for later use.
