0/1V - 10V dimming

You can use 4AO module for dimming with external 3rd party LED driver / dimmer module.

0-10V

This is default option, where 0V = 0% = off, 10V = 100% = on

  1. Open Service settings of analog output device
  2. Open Device tab.
  3. Default setting is:

    ← AO DimmerRename
    GENERAL   DEVICE   PERMISSIONS
    MinValue0V
    MaxValue10V
    OffValueEnabled(error)
    OffValue0V

0/1V - 10V

 Some dimmers require 0V when light is turned off, and in order to start dimming, they use range of 1V - 10V.

  1. Open Service settings of analog output device
  2. Open Device tab.
  3. Change setting according to table below:

    ← AO DimmerRename
    GENERAL   DEVICE   PERMISSIONS
    MinValue1V

Combining analog output with relay (optional)

To save energy, you might want to turn off power supply when all the lights that are powered by it are set to 0%. This will conserve more power when lights are off.

Take into consideration that response time when turning on power supply can be visible.


To prolong lifetime of power supply, you should use smart rule to turn off power supply after all lights are turned off for certain time:

  1. Open switch that controls Power supply
  2. Add smart rule: Equation
