Earliest Version Software Requirements for the PC

NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take advantage of the most recently released features. The latest software is available from the Crestron website.

Crestron has developed an assortment of Windows®-based software tools to develop a Cresnet system. You can create a program to control the DIN-8SW8 using the Crestron programming tools Crestron SystemBuilder, D3 Pro™ or SIMPL Windows. Customers whose focus is on lighting systems may prefer to use the D3 Pro software since it is designed especially for creating lighting and environmental system control applications. Customers already familiar with SIMPL Windows who are including a lighting system as part of an overall control system project may prefer to continue using SIMPL Windows. For the minimum recommended software versions, visit the Version Tracker page of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com/versiontracker).

Programming with Crestron SystemBuilder

Crestron SystemBuilder is the easiest method of programming but does not offer as much flexibility as SIMPL Windows. For additional details, download SystemBuilder from the Crestron website and examine the extensive help file.

Programming with D3 Pro

Crestron’s D3 Pro lighting software provides all the tools necessary to create a complete Crestron lighting system for residential applications. The lighting system includes the control system logic program, touchpanel projects and keypad programming, documentation and realtime lighting adjustment capabilities.

As with all Crestron software, D3 Pro provides extensive right-click and drag-and-drop functionality in addition to convenient keyboard shortcuts for frequently used functions and commands.

Programming is organized into six system Views of the lighting system, each providing a moveable toolbox of devices such as interfaces, fixtures and control modules. You can add a device to your system simply by selecting it from one of the toolboxes and dragging it to a room. The available toolboxes differ depending on the View but all Views include a "General" toolbox that allows you to add areas and rooms at any time.

Programming with SIMPL Windows

NOTE: While SIMPL Windows can be used to program the DIN-8SW8, it is recommended to use SystemBuilder for configuring a system.

SIMPL Windows is Crestron’s premier software for programming Crestron control systems. It is organized into two separate but equally important “Managers”.

Configuration Manager is the view where programmers “build” a Crestron control system by selecting hardware from the Device Library.

To incorporate the DIM-8SW8into the system, drag the DIN-8SW8 from the Lighting | Lighting (Din-Rail Series) folder of the Device Library and drop it in the System Views.

Power

Check Network Wiring

In order to ensure optimum performance over the full range of your installation topology, Crestron Certified Wire and only Crestron Certified Wire may be used. Failure to do so may incur additional charges if support is required to identify performance deficiencies because of using improper wire.

CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty.

CAUTION: Provide sufficient power to the system. Insufficient power can lead to unpredictable results or damage to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power Calculator to help calculate how much power is needed for the system (www.crestron.com/calculators).

When calculating the length of wire for a particular Cresnet run, the wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected must be taken into consideration. Use Crestron Certified Wire only. If Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the Cresnet power usage of the entire chain. If the unit is home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port, the Cresnet power usage of that unit is the Cresnet power usage of the entire run. The wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of the run should be used in the following equation to calculate the cable length value on the equation’s left side.

Cable Length Equation

L <

40,000

Where:

L

= Length of run (or chain) in feet

 

R = 6 Ohms (Crestron Certified Wire: 0.75 MM2(18 AWG))

R x P

 

P

= Cresnet power usage of entire run (or chain)

 

 

 

 

 

Make sure the cable length value is less than the value calculated on the right side of the equation. For example, a Cresnet run using 0.75 mm2 (18 AWG) Crestron Certified Wire and drawing 20 watts should not have a length of run more than 101 meters (333 feet). Cresnet HP cannot be used.

Strip and Tin

Wire

Add Hubs

NOTE: All Crestron certified Cresnet wiring must consist of two twisted pairs. One twisted pair is the +24V conductor and the GND conductor and the other twisted pair is the Y conductor and the Z conductor.

When daisy-chaining Cresnet units, strip the ends of the wires carefully to avoid nicking the conductors. Twist together the ends of the wires that share a pin on the network connector and tin the twisted connection. Apply solder only to the ends of the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up the wires or the end becomes brittle. Insert the tinned connection into the Cresnet connector and tighten the retaining screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.

Use of a Cresnet hub/repeater (DIN-HUB) is advised whenever the number of Cresnet devices on a network exceeds 20 or when the combined total length of Cresnet cable exceeds 914 meters (3000 feet).
