"Maintenance functions" refers to firmware updates, restarts and factory resets which are carried out through the Action Center (GPA menu -> Action Center).
Import of Terminal projects
Terminal is a piece of planning software for building installation. Importing a Terminal project automatically generates a new GPA visualisation project with the Gira X1.
When the file is imported, the KNX group addresses are automatically converted to data points and assigned to the visualisation functions. The GPA help contains a list of all supported Terminal functions.
You will find more information about Terminal at: https://terminal-konfigurator.de/
The OpenVPN function in the Gira X1 only works in conjunction with DHCP. There must be a DHCP server in the network and the Gira X1 network must be initialised via DHCP and not by means of static IP configuration. This is necessary in order for the OpenVPN server to be able to assign an IP address to connecting clients. Should you wish to always use the Gira X1 with a fixed IP address, you can generally configure the DHCP server (usually part of the Internet router) in such a way that it always assigns the same IP address to the Gira X1.
Retentive data is saved by the Gira L1 every 15 minutes. Data may be lost within this time period in the event of power failure.
The Gira X1/L1 offers several physical addresses. When the physical address is programmed within the ETS, only the device address is adopted. The additional addresses are only adopted after downloading the application program.
After project download, the Gira X1/L1 responds to the first event with a delay of approx. 1 second.
A solution description is specified in the "Troubleshooting" directory. This is found in the installation directory of the Gira Project Assistant.
Example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gira\Gira Project Assistant\3.1\Troubleshooting"
Values that are written to a variable data point in simulation mode will not be passed on. This only applies to the simulation. The variable data points function as normal on the Gira L1.
If an error appears when adding a firmware file stating that the firmware file is not valid, there may be several causes for this, which are resolved as follows:
