HW Settings

Name Type, range SUBID Default Description
def integer 0-250 1 100 The default brightness level in case of a power reset (1..250). Example: def=250
min integer 0-100 1 0 Minimum dimming level, example: min=10
max integer 0-100 1 100 Maximum dimming level, example max=95
start integer 0-100 1 0 The Start function is used for lamps that lack the minimal voltage to get turned on. If the set value is lower than the start value, the lamp is turned on at the start value and them the light is dimmed down to the set level. Example: start=60
force integer 0-100 1 10 Time duration of the starting value (measured in milliseconds). Example: force=20
runtime integer 0-60000 1 1000 Runtime is the speed of changing the brightness from ‘min’ to ‘max’ (measured in milliseconds). Example: runtime=1000
protect integer 0;1 1 0 Overload Protect. 0(off); 1 (on), example: protect=0
func string 1 disabled The dimming curve (for dimmable LED lamps and dimmable halogen lamps), example: func=’led’
offset float(+/- 0…39) SubID 30 temperature sensor 0 sensor values offset;
For example, offset is -3.8 :

hw="offset='-3.8'"
mode string 98 disabled  Frequency of pulse-width modulation in Hz for item with direct current.

  • dc100 – 100Hz
  • dc200 – 200Hz
  • dc400 – 400Hz
  • dc800 – 800Hz

Example: mode='dc400'

dm char 98 'g' Each char is responsible for the type of a particular channel

  • 'g' – use like halogen dimer-lamp
  • 's' – Soft Switch, lamp, when on/off power is supplied/deenergised smoothly (500msec)
  • 'k' – Switch, lamp, when on/off power is supplied/deenergised immediately
  • 'l' – LED Function, dimmable LED lamps
  • '-' – Channel disabled
  • '+' – Regular channel
  • Example: dm='s'

in char[3] 98 'BBB' Each char is responsible for the type of a particular channel

  • 'B'-Button, a bell type;
  • 'C'-Inverted button, inversebutton of a bell type (for normally-closed);
  • 'D'-Backlit button, illuminated button;
  • 'E'-Inverted backlit button, inverse illuminated button;
  • 'S'-Switch, fixed switch;
  • 'K'-Contact, reed contact;
  • 'H'-Inverted contact, inversereed contact;
  • '-'-none, nothing is connected.

And you can also connect one temperature sensor:

hw="in=T+-'"

Example: in='BCB'
