DRA switching actuators with integrated bus coupler. For switching independently controllable groups of loads. With manual switch for switching over the relay (On/Off) parallel or without KNX operation. Multi-phase connection. No additional power supply required.



  • Manual actuation of the relay independent of the bus or switching position indication.
  • NO contact or NC contact operation.
  • Central switching function.
  • Group feedback for reduction of bus load.
  • Active or passive (object can be read out) cyclical feedback function.
  • Feedback can be delayed until after the recovery of bus voltage.
  • Logical linking function for each output.
  • Block function can be parameterised for each channel. As an alternative, forced setting function for each output.
  • Time functions (switch-on/off delay, staircase light function – also with advance warning function).
  • Integration in light scenes is possible, eight internal scenes at the most can be parameterised per channel.
  • Memory function for light scenes.
  • Elapsed operating time meter as forward/backward counter with limit function (limit can be changed via bus) can be activated for each output.
  • Input monitoring for cyclical updating with safety setting.
  • Reactions in case of bus voltage failure and restoration can be set for each channel following an ETS programming process.
  • The switching contacts of the switching actuator, 8-gang, C-load are especially designed for loads with a capacitive character, and therefore conditional, brief, high switch-on currents (see Technical Data).
  • The switching actuator has an integrated current detection.
  • A current measurement can be carried out for each channel.
  • Current detection: Measurement of load current for each channel.
  • Threshold values for load monitoring (e.g. signalling of load failure).
  • Independent switching of the eight outputs.
