Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 4 configuration parameters available in the powerSwitch. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
1 Set to Default Set all configuration values to default values (factory settings)
4 Start up with last known socket status state in what the switch is when power is supplied
9 Relay delay time When the relay is switched it can’t be switched again until the configured time has passed
10 Led indicator Show the led compared to the relay state
  Switch All Mode Set the mode for the switch when receiving SWITCH ALL commands

Parameter 1: Set to Default

Set all configuration values to default values (factory settings) All values (0x00 – 0xFF) except for 0x55 can be used to default all the configuration params . Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_1_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 4: Start up with last known socket status

state in what the switch is when power is supplied If 0x01–0xFF: When power applied socket is the state before power was disconnected Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_4_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 9: Relay delay time

When the relay is switched it can’t be switched again until the configured time has passed Value * 10 milliseconds Values in the range 0 to 0 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_9_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 10: Led indicator

Show the led compared to the relay state If value is 0: the indicator led is never switched on If value is 1: the indicator led is switched on when relay is switched on If value is 2: the indicator led is switched on when relay is switched off Values in the range 0 to 2 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 1.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_10_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Switch All Mode

Set the mode for the switch when receiving SWITCH ALL commands.

The following option values may be configured -: | Value | Description | |——–|————-| | 0 | Exclude from All On and All Off groups | | 1 | Include in All On group | | 2 | Include in All Off group | | 255 | Include in All On and All Off groups |

This parameter has the configuration ID switchall_mode and is of type INTEGER.

Association Groups

Association groups allow the device to send unsolicited reports to the controller, or other devices in the network. Using association groups can allow you to eliminate polling, providing instant feedback of a device state change without unnecessary network traffic.

The powerSwitch supports 1 association group.

Group 1: Group 1

This group supports 1 nodes.
