Protection Mode

FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 uses the Protection Command Class v2 to prevent from unintended motor movement.

1) Local Protection
Local Protection State:
0 – no protection. Roller Shutter responds to push buttons.
1 – not supported
2 – Local protection active. Roller Shutter does not respond to push buttons.
Once the Local Protection is activated, the module stops responding to S1 and S2 push buttons. SCENE ID and association commands will not be sent as well. The only exception is the B-button. Menu and Z-Wave network inclusion, after the B-button or S1 push button triple click, are still active.

In Protection Mode it will not be possible to control FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 from buttons. It is not recomended to control all Roller Shutters in this mode.

There is one more exception in Local Protection. In Gate Mode, S2 (IR Barrier) is still active. It means if the obstacle is detected, the gate will stop, regardless the Local Protection State set.

2) RF Protection (radio protection)
RF Protection State:
0 – No protection. Roller Shutter responds to command frames.
1 – RF Protection active. Roller Shutter does not respond to the Z-Wave control frames.

Once the RF Protection is activated, the module stops responding to command frames setting the blind position. It is still possible however to configure the device (advanced configuration parameters, protection modes) and checking it’s current state through polling (position, power, energy).

Positioning calibration

Calibration is a process during which a Roller Shutter learns the position of the limit switches and a motor characteristic. Calibration is mandatory in order for the Roller Shutter to correctly recognize a roller blind position. The procedure consists of an automatic, full movement between the limit switches (up, down, and up again). There are separate procedures of calibrating roller blind and slats (venetian blind) positioning. Each time the calibration requires the completion of a full cycle (up and down).

To abort the calibration process press any button (connected to S1 or S2) or send a STOP control frame through the Z-Wave network controller. In Gate Controller mode the calibration process will be aborted after disconnecting the S2 terminal.

In Venatian Blind mode, slats need to be calibrated to work with any given motor.

Venetian blind slats may be only operated by momentary switches.

Slats positioning calibration in venetian blinds

Apart from calibrating the roller blind position, it is possible to calibrate the position of venetian blinds slats. After correct calibration, in case of venetian blinds, it is possible to set the position between the limit switches, as well as the slats angle. By default, time of full turn of the slats is set to 1.5 seconds. To modify settings

  1. Make sure the module is supplied
  2. Add the device to the Z-Wave network
  3. Calibrate the device normally
  4. Set the parameter 10 value to 2 or choose in the Home Center interface: Device Type – Venetian Blind

Operating gate motors

FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 allows to operate gate motors. Gate motor should be connected to Q1 and Q2 terminals according to installation diagram. In the Gate Mode, a momentary switch may be connected to S1 terminal. It is recommended to connect an IR barrier, an emergency stop button or any alarm mechanism to S2 terminal. Opening a contact in a device connected to S2 terminal will always result in stopping a motor in current position.

Clicking a push button connected to S1 terminal will initiate opening the gate. Next click of a button will stop the gate. Yet another click of a button will close the gate. According to following seaquence: OPEN → STOP → CLOSE → STOP → OPEN.

In Gate Mode, by default, the S1 terminal is set to operate with a momentary switch, ignoring the settings of parameter 14.

Full opening the gate initiates a Roller Shutter 2 COUNTDOWN. After the COUNTDOWN the gate will start closing. COUNTDOWN length is set through the parameter 12. In addition, if the IR barrier is cut (S2 contact opened) at the gate fully open, the gate will start closing after a time period specified in parameter 17.

In both Gate Modes, with and without positioning, parameters 12 and 17 are automatically set to 0. At these settings the gate will open, but will not automatically close. Relevant times need to be set manually in parameters 12 and 17.

Parameters 12 and 17 settings are automatically modified only in Home Center controller, when choosing one of Gate Modes. In case of controllers from other manufacturers these parameters need to be set manually.

Installation of the gate driver may be performed only by certified professionals. The motor must be equipped with the appropriate limit switches. It is recommended to connect a NC (normally closed) contact of an IR barrier to S2 terminal. Opening the contact will stop the gate. In addition, it’s recommened to connect an emergency stop button to the motors neutral (N) wire. In emergency, pushing the emergency stop button will cut the power and stop the gate. It is recomended to monitor regulary operation of FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 in all modes. Also it is recomended to regulary verificate and maintenance connectors.

S1 and S2 terminals react to mains voltage only. Using IR barriers with NC contacts operating on lower voltages require using an additional relay.

Power and energy consumption

FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 allows for the active power and energy consumption monitoring. Data is sent to the main Z-Wave controller, e.g. Home Center. Measuring is carried out by the most advanced micro-controller technology, assuring maximum accuracy and precision.

Electric active power – power that energy receiver is changing into a work or a heat. The unit of active power is Watt [W].

Electric energy – energy consumed by a device through a time period. Consumers of electricity in households are billed by suppliers on the basis of active power used in given unit of time. Most commonly measured in kilowatt-hour [kWh]. One kilowatt-hour is equal to one kilowatt of power consumed over period of one hour, 1kWh = 1000Wh.

Resetting consumption memory:
Roller Shutter 2 allows to erase stored consumption data through the Z-Wave controller, performing reset procedure of the device or manually:

  1. Make sure the device is supplied
  2. Press and hold the B-button
  3. Wait for the visual LED indicator to glow green
  4. Release the B-button
  5. Press the B-button briefly to confirm selection
  6. Consumption data will be reset

Protection Mode

FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 uses the Protection Command Class v2 to prevent from unintended motor movement.

1) Local Protection
Local Protection State:
0 – no protection. Roller Shutter responds to push buttons.
1 – not supported
2 – Local protection active. Roller Shutter does not respond to push buttons.
Once the Local Protection is activated, the module stops responding to S1 and S2 push buttons. SCENE ID and association commands will not be sent as well. The only exception is the B-button. Menu and Z-Wave network inclusion, after the B-button or S1 push button triple click, are still active.

In Protection Mode it will not be possible to control FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 from buttons. It is not recomended to control all Roller Shutters in this mode.

There is one more exception in Local Protection. In Gate Mode, S2 (IR Barrier) is still active. It means if the obstacle is detected, the gate will stop, regardless the Local Protection State set.

2) RF Protection (radio protection)
RF Protection State:
0 – No protection. Roller Shutter responds to command frames.
1 – RF Protection active. Roller Shutter does not respond to the Z-Wave control frames.

Once the RF Protection is activated, the module stops responding to command frames setting the blind position. It is still possible however to configure the device (advanced configuration parameters, protection modes) and checking it’s current state through polling (position, power, energy).

Configuration

Advanced parameters

FIBARO Wall Plug allows to customize its operation to user’s needs. The settings are available in the FIBARO interface as simple options that may be chosen by selecting the appropriate box.
In order to configure FIBARO Wall Plug (using the Home Center controller):

  1. Go to the device options by clicking the icon: klucz_grey_kolko
  2. Select the „Advanced” tab.
  3. Modify values of chosen parameters.
  4. Save the changes.

 





General settings
In this mode Wall Plug will turn on connected device permanently and will stop reacting to attempts of turning it off (through Z-Wave network or pushing the B-button).
“Always On” function turns the Wall Plug into a power and energy meter. Connected device will not be turned off upon receiving an alarm frame from another Z-Wave device (parameter 31 will be ignored).
In “Always on” mode, connected device may be turned off after exceeding the power defined in parameter 3 or in case of detecting current greater than 110% of rated current. In such cases, connected device can be turned on again by pushing the B-button or sending a control frame. By default, overload protection is inactive.

Available settings:
0 – function inactive
1 – function active
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

This parameter determines how the Wall Plug will react in the event of power supply failure (e.g. power outage or taking out from the electrical outlet).
After the power supply is back on, the Wall Plug can be restored to previous state or remain switched off.
This parameter is ignored in „Always On” mode – the device automatically turns ON after plugging it into the socket.

Available settings:
0 – device remains switched off
1 – device restores the state from before the power failure
Default setting: 1
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

This function allows to turn off the controlled device in case of exceeding the defined power. Controlled device will be turned off even if “Always On” function is active (parameter 1).
Controlled device can be turned back on via B-button or sending a control frame. By default this function is inactive.

Available settings:
0 – function inactive
10-30000 (1.0-3000.0W, step 0.1W) – power threshold
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 2 [bytes]

The device has a protection that will turn the load off in the case of detecting current greater than 110% of rated current (>12A). It is a safety function and it cannot be turned off. After its activation the load can be turned on back again by pressing the B-button or sending a control frame. This function is independent of overload safety switch set in the parameter no. 3.

Overload safety switch functionality is not an overload safety protection nor a short circuit protection. Circuit needs additional short circuit and overload protection!


Power and energy measurement
The default values of the parameters suit most types of devices. They were selected to show in real time the instantaneous power values, while not overloading the Z-Wave network in the process. In specific cases it may be necessary to modify default settings in order to optimize Z-Wave network’s use. In extreme cases it is recommended to turn off reporting completely and configure power polling or periodic reports in the Z-Wave controller.
The Wall Plug reports the power load with specified frequency. Below configuration parameters allow to specify how and how frequently power load will be reported.

This parameter determines the minimum percentage change in active power that will result in sending power report to the main controller with the highest priority in the Z-Wave network.
By default, the Wall Plug immediately sends the power report if the power load changes by 80%.

Available settings:
1-99 – power change in percent
100 – reports are disabled
Default setting: 80 80%
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

In extreme cases, reports may be sent every second if rapid and significant power load changes occur. Frequent reporting may overload the Z-Wave network so these parameter’s settings should reflect significant changes in power load only.

This parameter determines the minimum percentage change in active power that will result in sending power report to the main controller
Compared to parameter 10, the maximum number of reports sent is reduced (parameter 12) to 5 in a specified time interval. In addition, the reports are not sent in mode, which may result in overloading the Z-Wave network.
By default changes in power load may be reported up to 5 times per 30 seconds, when power load changes by 15%.

Available settings:
1-99 – power change in percent
100 – reports are disabled
Default setting: 15 15%
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

This parameter defines the time interval of sending at most 5 standard power reports when the power changes by the value set in parameter 11. The higher the value of parameter 12, the fewer reports the device will send.

Associations

Association (linking devices) – direct control of other devices within the Z-Wave system network e.g. Dimmer, Relay Switch, Wall Plug, Roller Shutter or scene (may be controlled only through a Z-Wave controller).

Association ensures direct transfer of control commands between devices, is performed without participation of the main controller and requires associated device to be in the direct range.

FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 allows for the associations of three groups:

1st Association Group is assigned to the external switch – sending command frames to the associated devices whenever momentary switch is clicked or position of toggle switch is changed
2nd Association Group is assigned to the external switch – sending command frames to the associated devices whenever momentary switch is hold
3rd Association Group reports the device status and allows to assign single device only (the main controller by default).

2nd association group is inactive when toggle switches are used or in Gate Controller mode (parameter 10). In case of controlling Venetian Blinds, control commands are sent in Fibar Command Class standard.

FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 in 1st and 2nd group allows to control 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group. In case of associating only Roller Shutters the limit is increased to 15. 3rd group is reserved solely for the controller and hence only 1 node can be assigned.

It is not recommended to associate more than 10 devices in general, as the response time to control commands depends on the number of associated devices. In extreme cases, system response may be delayed.

To add an association (using the Home Center controller):

  1. Go to device options by clicking the icon: klucz_grey_kolko
  2. Select the „Advanced” tab
  3. Specify to which group and what devices are to be associated
  4. Wait for the configuration process to end. Sending relevant information to devices added to associated groups may take even a few minutes.

Any new association order given while any association commands are already being sent to devices, cancels previous one.

FAQ


Roller Shutter is a roller blind controller compatible with Z-Wave network. Roller Shutter module allows to control and position roller blind motors.

Roller shutter module can handle up to:
– 4,2 A for lamps and resistive loads
– 1,7 A for motors with compensated power factor (inductive loads)

Generally no – Roller Shutter is designed to be connected directly to roller blind motor.

In fact no. DC motors uses different control technology so it cannot be controlled without additional executive circuit.

Yes you can – use association functionality and control up to 15 roller shutter modules from only one module.

If you use Home Center 2 or Home Center Lite you can associate 15 Roller Shutter modules but it is not recommended to associate more than 10 devices in general.

Yes – these roller blinds are fully compatible with our roller shutter module.

You can control such roller blinds but it will not be possible to position them. To control such roller blinds please modify parameter 10 for value 1.

You should use proper block according to your device’s name. For example for A2 roller shutter will be following block:
scene
You can enter desired open level in green box (45% for example). Red box is used for defining delay (10 seconds).

Probably you have roller blinds with electronic limit switches, please modify parameter 10 value to 1.

FAQ


The FIBARO Wall Plug is a universal, Z-Wave compatible relay switch in the form of a socket adapter. The Wall Plug may be used to operate any device up to a maximum of 2,500W. The Wall Plug features power consumption measuring and uses a LED ring to visualize the current load by colour changing illumination. The FIBARO Wall Plug may be operated using a button located on its casing, or via any Z-Wave compatible controller.

When connecting a load to the Plug, make sure it does not exceed 2,500W.

Yes, it is available in two versions and designed to be used with E or F type (Schuko) sockets.

Yes, Wall Plug can trigger scenes like the switches and dimmers do. Just put your whole scene inside the “if” statement that triggers when the value reaches the threshold.

Yes, in fact it is recommended to perform inclusion of the device in direct range of the main controller. Just make sure that final destination is in range of the Home Center controller. Triple click the B button in the final location to adjust the network to the new position.

Check advanced parameters. You can also activate illumination by pressing and holding the B button until the LED ring starts pulsing white, then releasing the button and pressing it briefly again. If this does not help, try resetting the Wall Plug.

You can discover this by performing a Z-Wave range test:
1) Insert the Plug into a mains socket,
2) Press and hold the B button for 10-15 seconds until the LED ring glows violet,
3) Release the B button,
4) Press the B button briefly.
5) The LED ring shows the Z-Wave network range (green = direct connection, yellow = routed connection)
6) To exit range testing mode press the B button briefly.

The power data specified by producers are often based on rough estimates or measured in perfect conditions. Real world power depends on mains voltage, device condition or ambient conditions. It is therefore possible for two identical devices to consume different amounts of energy.

Such things happen because of mains voltage fluctuations, wire lengths and voltage drops between the sockets.

Power measuring is important because it is based on this parameter that electricity suppliers charge households for energy use.

Some devices may have such characteristics, e.g. computers. If the connected device frequently and significantly changes power consumption, e.g. plasma TVs, it is recommended to modify the configuration parameters to reduce the frequency that the Wall Plug reports power consumption. This will reduce Z-Wave network traffic. To reduce the number of power reports, value of the parameters must be modified– by how much will depend on your situation.

The FIBARO Wall Plug stores consumed electricity data in its non-volatile memory, which means disconnecting the Wall Plug from a socket does not erase the data. To reset the electricity consumption memory:
1) Insert the Wall Plug in a socket,
2) Press and hold the B button for 5-10 seconds until the LED ring glows green,
3) Release the B button,
4) Press the B button briefly. The reset will be signaled by double, green, LED ring blink.

The LED ring illumination may be turned off completely. To do so:
1) Insert the Wall Plug in a socket,
2) Press and hold the B button for 2-5 seconds, until the LED ring starts pulsing white,
3) Release the B button,
4) Press the B button briefly.
After the LED ring has been turned off, it can be turned on again by repeating the above procedure.

You can connect multiple Wall Plugs in close proximity of each other. They will work properly regardless of that.

Yes, you can create an association that will turn ON/OFF two Wall Plugs using a button on one of them.

Yes, it is possible by modifying advanced parameters.

No, it has been designed to measure energy consumption only.

Yes, the Wall Plug’s LED ring illuminates with a pale blue or white light while it is connected to the power outlet and turned on. This can be used as a bedside lamp. The soft light can be turned on and off by pressing the button on the Wall Plug’s casing.

Yes, the time interval can be changed in advanced parameters. Remember that it should not be too low.

Yes, the Wall Plug automatically recognizes the connected load and is protected from overcurrent or short circuits. The overload safety function allows the controlled device to be turned off if it exceeds a set limit. This is signaled by the LED alternating between yellow and red.

No, this mode keeps the connected device constantly on and disables reacting to alarm frames and B-button pushes. Connected device will be turned off only if user-defined overload limit is exceeded. “Always on” mode is activated by parameter 1.
