Hi All
I've just had a new SCS so I can tell the temperature.
This works a treat and I can transfer this level to a counter
BUT I can't work out how to transfer this to Cbus
Any pointers
Thanks in advance
Mike

The only way I know is with a Response. Try creating a response and associate it to the Counter, if the Counter value changes it will execute the Response. Put the 'Cbus RampInst' command in the response. The trick is to put the current Counter value to be used in there and perhaps Cytech can assist.

I haven't played around with this so can't give any more advice. Perhaps the Action Codes manual might provide more info - look at Action code 81 (Get Counter Value)


Thinking about it some more, the Counter Response will not be triggered if the value of the Counter changes from the 'inside' it will only run if it is set with a C! command from 'external'

Sorry for the delay, we were studying if what you ask would be possible until we forgot about the question. Do remind us if we takek more than 1 day to reply

You can trigger a Sensor Response from SCS
However the Cbus commands are using fixed values, ie you cannot take a sensor or counter value and send it to Cbus

In UCM/KNX, a change in counter will send the new value to the KNX group address, so this would also be possible in Cbus in a new firmware, but possibly would not be so soon.
So in the meantime the answer is it cannot be done

Just to add that we are planning a new version of the UCM/cbus which has this feature and supports receiving other applications like Trigger, and requires an EEPROM and a configurator

Thanks All
I thought this was the case. but wasn't sure

Look forward to the new Cbus
be warned though Trigger Application and Enable Application don't work the same way as the Lighting Application -
perhaps the ability to use more than one of their lighting Application 57 & 58 say!

Chiu I have sent you a PM

Only a quick look at this so may not be relevant and no harm:

1. Primitive but you can nest a load of Ifs one for each value

If value x do response aaa
Else
If value y do response bbb
etc.

or similar

If value x
Cbus command
Else If value y
Another Cbus Command
etc.


2. You can of course also compare a temperature with a set point and turn on a CBus relay etc.

 Get SensorRegister 14
 Subtract HallUpC22
  If LastActionValue < 128 Then
        ! Next line used for testing
        ! Announce Upstairs Hall Heat Off
        Clear Flag HallUpF56
        Do C_HallHeatOf125
        Do DD_HeatUp_Off ! < Checks if last zone to go off and if so turns off valve and pump
Else
etc.
