I just receives my first velbus modules and I’m happy to say that it looks really good at first sight.
But now I’ve got a few questions:
I’m contolling the bus at the moment directly with visuall basic (no .net) because the velbuslink soft doesn’t start in server mode. What I do is send a bus activ message, the data (like a pushbutton press) and at last a bus off message. I don’t know if this is the normal way to do so? Is it neccesary to send a bus off message and always a bus active message (without the modules won’t respond)?
I was browsing thrue the download directories and saw some article in Italian. It is that my Italian level is below zero and understand not half of the articles but I get the base of them. The question about them: they use hardware handshaking with the serial module (dtr, rts), how do the bus responds to this? Does it sends a bus active, bus off? I’d like to know this because this is very interresting to make a microcontroller talk to the bus and make my own apps.
Is there any chance that there will be a dimmer extension (slave dimmer) or a dimmer that can handle a bit more power than 300w?
ok I’ve got more questions, but let’s have a start with those.
