Gira Instabus push button interfaces

Instabus KNX/EIB push button interface, 2-gang
The Gira Instabus KNX/EIB push button interfaces serve to integrate conventional switches and push buttons in the Instabus KNX/EIB. The push button interfaces are installed in flush-mounted wall boxes, 60 mm deep, behind the switches or push buttons and are connected both to the bus cable and to the corresponding switch or push button. When pressed, the switching command, e.g. "light on", is routed via the bus line to a switching actuator in the distribution system. This then switches on the light specified during installation.

The Gira 2-gang universal push button interface and the Gira 4-gang universal push button interface are available as push button interfaces. Two inputs each on both devices can also be configured as outputs for display functions with LEDs. Both devices have comprehensive software functions, which correspond to the DRA plus actuators and binary inputs from Gira. With the software, the functions for switching, dimming, blinds, valuators and light scene auxiliary unit, temperature and brightness valuators, pulse counters and switch counters, for example, can be set and assigned to the inputs.

Adjustable properties

Properties which can be adjusted with software:
  • Free assignment of the functions for switching, dimming, blind and valuator to inputs 1 through 4 or pulse counters and switch counters to inputs 1 and 2
  • Blocker for blocking individual inputs
  • Behaviour when the bus voltage returns can be configured separately for each input
  • Telegram rate limiting
  • Switching function: two independent switching objects are available for each input and can be released individually, command for leading and trailing edge can be set independently (ON, OFF, CHANGE, no reaction), cyclical transmission of the blocker depending on the edge or depending on the object value can be selected
  • Dimming function: single- and double-surface operation, time between dimming and switching and dim-step size can be set, telegram repetition and stop telegram transmission possible
  • Blind function: command can be set with rising edge (no function, UP, DOWN, CHANGE), operating concept can be configured (Step - Move - Step or Move - Step), time between step and moving mode can be set, slat adjustment time can be set
  • Value transmitter and light scene auxiliary unit: edge (push button as NO contact, push button as NC contact, switch) and value with edge can be configured, value adjustment with push button by pressing and holding button for value transmitters possible, light scene auxiliary unit with memory function and saving of the scene without previously calling up is possible
  • Temperature and brightness valuator function: edge and value configurable, value adjustment with push button by pressing and holding button possible
  • Pulse counter function: edge for pulse counting and interval time for counter status transfer can be configured, edge of the synchronisation signal for resetting the counter status and switching telegram when synchronisation signal arrives can be set
  • Function of switching counter: edge for counting the signals at the input and max. counter status are selectable, step size for counter status output and telegram when the max. counter status is reached can be configured
