0-10VDC Casambi Scene Selector
Scene10cas is a Casambi “Gateway” device designed to utilize a connection to a standard 0-10VDC analog dimming master controller to provide a remote selection of pre-deﬁned Casambi Scenes and Scene Intensity. Scene10cas is connected between a 12-24 VDC Class 2 power supply and a two-channel 0-10VDC master.
Scene10cas decodes both 0-10VDC channels and provides Scene selections by mapping the ﬁrst 0-10V channel into voltage segments, which are then selected depending on the voltage level. The second 0-10VDC channel provides a 0-100% intensity selection for the selected Casambi Scene.
Voltage trim and hysteresis values are also provided to implement installations where the 0-10VDC levels may not be in full range or are noisy due to installation factors.
Scene10cas can be conﬁgured with the Casambi app which can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Diﬀerent Casambi enabled products can be used from a simple single luminaire direct control to a complete and full-featured
Connect a Class 2 power supply with 12-24 VDC output voltage to the input connector of Scene10cas. Make sure not to use a constant current LED driver and make sure that the cable polarity is correct. The product has two 0-10VDC analog positive input connections, plus one common (RETURN) ground. Connect the 0-10VDC load wires to a 0-10VDC master of your choice to give you 0-10VDC control of your Casambi Scene lighting network. Add Scenes to the Casambi network, the Scene10cas will allow up to 10 Scenes to be selected.
Using the Casambi app, go to Gateways, and press on the Scene10cas device, and add it to your Casambi network. Now press on the Scene10cas icon, and scroll to the bottom of that screen. Note at the bottom of this screen there are 16 user-programmable parameters—Number of Scenes, High and Low Trim, and Hysteresis for each channel, plus 10 Scene selectors. First, choose how many Scenes you are wanting to control, and not that this now divides the 10V span into “voltage segments” which now depending on the input voltage to channel A, will now select Scenes. The Trim ﬁne tune the bottom and top analog voltage input, and hysteresis allows for managing inputs that may be noisy. Then select up to 10 Scenes from your pre-deﬁned Scenes in your Casambi network.
Scene10cas should not be placed in a metal enclosure, such as metal junction boxes. Metal will attenuate radio signals which are crucial to the operation of the product. If the product will have to install into a junction box, make sure to use a plastic junction box. Scene10cas is an ETL Listed Open-Type device which means that it will have to be used together with a Class 2 power supply with a maximum output power of 100 VA. The product can be installed outside of the junction box. Make sure to comply with National Electric Code in installation and when selecting installation wires.

The range between two Scene10cas’s or between a Scene10cas and a smartphone can vary depending on obstacles and surrounding material. In open-air, the range between two Scene10cas can be in excess of 200 ft, but if the unit is encapsulated into a metal structure, the range can be only a few feet. Therefore, thorough testing is highly suggested. Casambi uses mesh network technology so each Scene10cas acts also as a repeater. When testing the network, it is important to test that each unit can be controlled from any point of the network covered area.

FCC Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment oﬀ and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
