Universal dim module (2 x 400 W)

The universal dim module is a DIN module with two channels for dimming light circuits. This module is suitable for incandescent lamps, 230 V halogen lamps, 12 V halogen lamps with a ferromagnetic or electronic transformer, dimmable LED lamps and dimmable economy lamps CFLi. The minimum light intensity and the type of lighting you wish to dim can be manually adjusted. The modules can be placed alongside each other without additional derating.

Universal dim module 2 x 400 W for Niko Home Control

Reference code

This universal dimmer module is a DIN module with two channels. It is used to dim circuits up to 400 VA (at 45°C) or 500 VA (at 35°C), and is suitable for use in combination with dimmable LED lamps and dimmable energy-saving lamps, 230 V halogen lamps, 12 V halogen lamps or incandescent lamps. The push buttons on the module allow you to manually switch the circuits. You can place the modules against one another; the power supply and bus are interconnected using a cross connector. The module is equipped with electronic protection against short-circuit, overvoltage and overcurrent."

Specification description

Universal dim module 2 x 400 W for Niko Home Control.

  • Function: The universal dimming module has two channels for dimming light circuits.

The transmission signal of the controller activates one or several outputs on the dimming module. These outputs can also be activated or deactivated manually using the buttons on the dimming module. Please remember that the activation or deactivation is only temporary as it will be overruled by the next bus communication. After a power failure, the dimming module will restore the settings from before the power failure. You can select the type of lighting you wish to dim by adjusting the DIP switches on the front of the module. Use the potentiometer to select the minimum light intensity for each channel on the front of the module.

The dimmer is fitted with a thermal protection device. If the temperature rises too much due to an overload, the dimmer will automatically switch itself off.

Adjust the position of the DIP switch to manually select the type of lighting you wish to dim.

Use a screwdriver to manually adjust the minimum light intensity. Turn the potentiometer clockwise to increase the minimum light intensity. Turn the potentiometer counter-clockwise to decrease the minimum light intensity.

When the module is functioning properly, the STATUS LED will light up in TEST mode only. If one or several errors occur, the LED will blink to indicate the error code of the error with the highest priority.

Connected controller for Niko Home Control II

The connected controller is the central module of every Niko Home Control installation for bus wiring. This module contains firmware that can only be programmed with the Niko Home Control programming software 2.1.1 or higher. It covers all basic functions on which a Niko Home Control installation is built. The basic functions include: • The intelligence directing the logic to the installation. Through the configuration software, the logic is saved locally on the controller. • The power supply module providing an input voltage of 26 V to the bus, the cabinet modules and the controls. Depending on the size of the installation, separate power supply modules can be added. • The connection to Niko Home Control IP devices such as touchscreens and external video units. A built-in router allows the user to connect up to 3 devices directly to the controller. With an extra switch, this number can be increased. • The connection to the internet. This enables the user to control the installation both indoors and outdoors (via mobile networks such as 3G, 4G, GPRS or Wi-Fi hotspot) using mobile devices (smartphones and tablets with iOS or Android). The module has a TEST button to verify the proper functioning and status of all other modules. Each installation must consist of one connected controller. After registration, your installation is connected, enabling control through the app via your smartphone and tablet, and you can enjoy the Niko services for upgrade or diagnosis of the installation.

Digital black, connected customisable control screen, 24 V

Digital black is a customisable control screen for Niko Home Control with an extremely user-friendly interface with clear symbols. The screen is automatically activated when your hand comes near. That way, you can switch or dim your lights, set scenes, set ventilation modes, and adjust blinds and sunblinds to the desired position in one operation. In short, all possible Niko Home Control control types are available. As this Digital black 24 V variant is equipped with a temperature sensor and algorithm, it can be programmed as a zone-thermostat when linked to a Niko Home Control heating cooling module (550-00150) or switching module (550-00103 or 550-00106) programmed for electrical heating. Do you have an active connection with one of our heating partners? Then you can easily set the temperature with Digital black. When Digital black is used as a thermostat, you define the set points and week programs in the Niko Home app. With the Niko Home app you can choose which controls are displayed or where they are displayed on the screen, but also the way you navigate through your control screens. You can download this app for free in the App store or the Google Play store. Digital black can be easily mounted in any standard flush-mounting box using the familiar claw or screw fixing and is powered by a separate 24 Vdc supply (e.g. 340-00050). The screen communicates via your Wi-Fi network with the rest of your Niko Home Control system. You need an active internet connection to activate Digital black. This internet connection ensures that your Digital black and Niko Home Control installation are always up-to-date and have the most recent functionalities.

Power supply

The power supply, in combination with the connected controller, provides an extra input voltage of 26 V to the bus, modules and controls. An extra power supply is only necessary in installations for which the power of the built-in power supply of the connected controller is insufficient. Up to 2 extra power supplies can be connected to installations with a connected controller. The MASTER button is not used, as the built-in power supply of the connected controller is always the master. For more information on the required number of power supplies, you can consult the installation manual.
