  • Cause: If the push buttons and the staircase timer are connected with a 2-wire connection, the total working current of the LEDs may be sufficiently high to have its coil be constantly activated. Solution: Adjust the wiring to a 3-wire connection. OR Replace the LEDs with neon lamps (only in push buttons with an E10 lamp base).

  • Use a remote switch (teleruptor) with auxiliary contact. The main contact switches the main circuit, the auxiliary contact switches the LED.

  • Specific products are needed, as this type of load type has a high starting current, which the product must be able to handle for a long period of time. Legal provisions also prohibit the use of just any light dimmer.

  • This combination is possible.

  • No, A two-wire actuator only switches 230V (40 to 400W) incandescent and halogen lamps with an ohmic load. For energy-saving and LED lamps, use an actor with relay contact.

  • Yes, The push buttons on the printed circuit board of these products switch a maximum of 24V DC or 24V~. A lower voltage is switched without any problems.

  • You can find several basic diagrams in the "Flush-mounting material" chapter of the catalogue.

  • The video signal of the Niko Access Control installation is a symmetrical line signal (1 VPP 100 Ω), while a non-symmetrical coax signal (1 VPP 75 Ω) is the most common standard video signal.

  • There is an extra bell in the Niko Access Control range:

  • Yes, You add a telephone interface and a telephone exchange to the access control installation. The one side of the interface is connected with a, b and P terminals from the installation while the other side (a, b) is connected to an analogue internal line of the telephone exchange.

  • User-friendliness and intuition are important factors to us and are often missing in existing home automation systems.

  • The connected controller is the basic element of the installation. One or a number of functions are added to this.

  • Home automation often has a negative undertone and is frequently associated with being expensive and complex. This is partly due to advertisements for home automation talking about how you can fill your bath from the comfort of your own car.

  • When new programming is being loaded into the installation, the software will automatically verify whether the modules and controls in the installation are using the latest software version. If an upgrade is necessary, a message will appear.

  • A two-wire bus cable provides power to the various control elements outside the electrical cabinet. The wiring diagram has a free topology, which means you are not bound by a fixed cabling diagram.

  • Niko advises that you connect a maximum of 10 LED lamps with a maximum power of 200 W per universal dimmer with standard PLC interference suppression.

  • Classical dimmers have 1 common profile for all lamps or switch automatically between phase control and reverse phase control depending on the lamp. For the more recent generation universal dimmers with standard PLC interference suppression for LED lamps you can use the dimmer search engine in first instance. It will tell you at which dimming level it is best to configure your dimmer. You will need to do it manually if your lamp reference was not tested by us.

  • The power consumption for LED lamps is most definitely important, however it is much lower than with traditional lamps such as halogen and incandescent lamps.

  • In the different dimming levels, a distinction is made between phase control and reverse phase control. This is the way in which a specific lamp is dimmed. One LED lamp is best dimmed in e.g. position LED 1; reverse phase control, the other in LED 2; phase control. The best way to control is not mentioned on the lamp. We aim to provide the best dimming level through the results of our dimmer search engine.

  • Of the 3 wires connect the brown phase conductor and the blue neutral conductor to the electricity grid. Connect the black connection wire to the lamp. Reconnect it to the neutral conductor of the dimmer. Connect the brown phase conductor to the grid. The black connection wire goes to the lamp which you reconnect to the grid with a neutral conductor.

  • All Niko universal dimmers now feature integrated PLC interference suppression as standard. Therefore, the dimmer can avoid interference from PLC signals and as a result the lamp will no longer hum, flicker or flash. In addition, the lamp will not flicker as a result of a sudden decrease in the mains frequency (frequency dips up to 3 Hz).

  • In addition to single-pole switches, a flush-mounting push button dimmer can also be used in two-way or intermediate switches.

  • We have made sure that via the dimmer search engine, you can easily find a list of lamps from different brands compatible with your dimmer.

It doesn't matter whether it is flush-mounting switching material or Niko Hydro mechanisms.

  • Yes, the Niko plug-in terminals undergo a whole battery of tests. These tests have shown that the terminal stays within the limits of the standard in the event of a heating and voltage drop. Because of this, the Niko plug-in terminals have a long life span.

  • The conductors for socket outlets need to be stripped to 14 mm, the conductors for switches to 8 mm. These lengths are also indicated on the back of the mechanism, in order to avoid errors. The type of terminal makes no difference in this respect.

  • Yes. Plug-in terminals are available for a wide and universal assortment. There is a variant with plug-in terminals available for all Niko switches and socket outlets.
