Lighting with central off

In this tutorial you will learn how to realize a central OFF control in COMEXIO OS via graphical programming.

Step one:

Logged in on the COMEXIO IO server, click on “Logic” in the menu bar on the left to access it.

Step two:

Now you see the possibly existing function charts, now you press on the “plus” (marked on the right in the picture) to create a new function chart (if one already exists skip this and the next step).

Step three:

Now a new window opens, in which you enter a name (e.g. “Living room lighting”). Then set the rest as desired and click on “Create”.

Step four:

Now select your created or existing function chart (at the top of the tabs) by clicking on it.

Step five:

Next, we recommend that you first drag and drop the inputs and outputs onto the surface (click on the module and then drag it into the white area).
The picture on the right shows the marked inputs: “ButtonCentralOff”, “ButtonLightingLivingroom” and the output “LightingLivingroom”, which we use for the tutorial and drag into the function chart.

It should look like this now.

Step six:

Then select “Logic blocks” from the toolbar and “Logic” from the submenu that now appears.

Step seven:

Now we find the suitable component “current surge with R/S”, which we need for the central off function. We drag this into the function chart as usual.

Step 8:

Now connect the inputs to the impulse module and the latter to the output.
A connection is established by clicking on the red arrowhead (for analog modules, circles) from the input, pulling it over and connecting it to the input of thethe inputs to the impulse module and the latter to the output.

That’s what it should look like now.

Step 9:

Now we come to the last step and activate the function chart by clicking on the start symbol (marked red on the right in the picture). Only now will this function be executed.

If you see the message “The function chart is now being executed” in green and the tab has turned blue, you have done it!

Here is an example of how your central off function for the lighting could look when you turn on multiple lamps.
