Micro Motor Controller manual

The following instructions have been designed to assist in the installation of the Aeotec by Aeon Labs Z-Wave in motor controller.

In-Wall Electrical Installation Instructions:

IMPORTANT
A licensed electrician with knowledge and understanding of electrical systems and electrical safety should complete the electrical installation inside the main circuit box (usually located outside of your house).

IMPORTANT
The electricity to the circuit must be shut off during installation for safety and to ensure that wires are not shortcircuited during insallation which will cause damage to the Micro Module. The Aeon Labs Micro Motor Controller must first be powered by a 3-wire system in order to operate. The wiring diagram is as follows:


 

Z-Wave Network Instructions:

The Aeon Labs Micro Motor Controller must be paired (included) into a Z-Wave network before it can receive Z-Wave commands to turn on/off/dim and report its energy usage. The Motor Controller can only communicate to devices within it’s own Z-Wave network.

Note
The LED on the Micro Motor Controller will blink if it is currently not paired into a Z-Wave network.
 

Adding/Including/Pairing the Micro Motor Controller into a Z-Wave Network

Controlling the Micro Motor Controller

Use any of the below methods to control the Micro Motor Controller.

  • Pressing the button on the external (Wall) switch will be able to spin the motor up/down/stop.
  • Through the usage of Z-Wave commands built into Z-Wave certified controllers and gateways. (The specific Z-Wave commands supporting this function are the Basic Command Class and Multilevel Switch Command Class.) Please consult the operation manual for these controllers for specific instructions on controlling the Motor Controller.
  • A short press on the button of the Motor Controller will spin the motor up/down. A hold and release of the button will stop the Motor Controller.

Change Mode on the External Switch/Button Control

The Aeon Labs Micro Motor Controller by default is set to be controlled via 2-state (flip/flop) external wall switch. Pushing the button 6 times in quick succession on the Micro Motor Controller will swap between this default mode and the momentary push button external wall switch mode.
