Range test

FIBARO Wall Plug has a built-in Z-Wave network main controller’s range tester.

To make Z-Wave range test possible, the device must be added to the Z-Wave controller. Testing may stress the network, so it is recommended to perform the test only in special cases.

Follow the below instructions to test the main controller’s range:

  1. Press and hold the button.
  2. Wait for the LED frame to glow violet (2nd menu position).
  3. Release the button.
  4. Click the button once to confirm selection.
  5. Visual indicator will indicate the Z-Wave network’s range (range signaling modes described below).
  6. To exit Z-Wave range test, press the button briefly.

Z-Wave range tester signalling modes:

Visual indicator pulsing green – the Wall Plug attempts to establish a direct communication with the main controller. If a direct communication attempt fails, the device will try to establish a routed communication, through other modules, which will be signalled by visual indicator pulsing yellow.

Visual indicator glowing green – the Wall Plug communicates with the main controller directly.

Visual indicator pulsing yellow – the Wall Plug tries to establish a routed communication with the main controller through other modules (repeaters).

Visual indicator glowing yellow – the Wall Plug communicates with the main controller through the other modules. After 2 seconds the device will retry to establish a direct communication with the main controller, which will be signalled with visual indicator pulsing green.

Visual indicator pulsing violet – the Wall Plug does communicate at the maximum distance of the Z-Wave network. If connection proves successful it will be confirmed with a yellow glow. It’s not recommended to use the device at the range limit.

Visual indicator glowing red – the Wall Plug is not able to connect to the main controller directly or through another Z-Wave network device (repeater).

Communication mode of the Wall Plug may switch between direct and one using routing, especially if the device is on the limit of the direct range.

Additional features

Power and energy consumption

The Wall Plug allows to monitor the active power and energy consumption. 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 (+/- 1% for loads greater than 5W).

Power and energy are reported according to parameters 11-15.

For loads under 5W power is reported for every 0.2W change.

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:

Wall Plug allows to erase stored consumption data (turning it off/on or removing it from the socket will not erase consumption):

  1. Make sure the device is powered.
  2. Press and hold the button.
  3. Release the button when the LED frame glows green (1st menu position).
  4. Press the button briefly.

Configuration

Associations

Association (device linking) – direct control of other devices within the Z-Wave system network e.g. Dimmer, Relay Switch, Roller Shutter, Wall Plug 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.

The device provides the association of seven groups:
1st Association Group – Lifeline (for root, endpoint 1 and 2) reports the device status and allows for assigning single device only (main controller by default).
2nd Association Group – On/Off (Button) (for root and endpoint 1) devices in this group will be switched on or off when relay status is changed using the button (uses Basic command class).
3rd Association Group – On/Off (Plug power) (for root and endpoint 1) devices in this group will be switched on or off depending on the current load of plugged device (uses Basic command class).

The Wall Plug in 2nd and 3rd group allows to control up to 5 regular or multichannel devices per an association group. “LifeLine” group is reserved solely for the controller and hence only 1 node can be assigned.

2nd association group commands are sent only in case of manual operation through the button.

3rd association group commands are sent automatically, depending on parameters 21 to 27.

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. Click the “Setting Association” button.
  4. Specify to which group and what devices are to be associated.
  5. Save the changes.
  6. Wait for the configuration process to end.

General settings

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.

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 can be turned back on via button or sending a control frame. By default this function is inactive.

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 frequently power load will be reported.

This parameter determines the minimum percentage change in active power consumption (in relation to the previously reported) that will result in sending new power report. Parameter is not relevant for loads under 5W.

Available settings:
0 – power reports inactive
1-100 – power change in percent
Default setting: 15 (15%)
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

In extreme cases, reports may be sent every second if rapid and significant load power 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 change in energy consumption (in relation to the previously reported) that will result in sending a new report.
