The app “sockets” provides an overview of all sockets in your system and allows you to name them and change their state.

The app “sockets” can be found under “all apps” – “sockets”.

You have two possibilities to change the state of a socket. Either you can click on the power symbol on the left in the object panel or you can click on the button “toggle” in the operator panel.


The parameter panel lets you give the socket a name and optionally allocate it to a room.

Save output if bus fault
If the socket is currently active and the bus connection to the CPU fails (e.g. the 24V power supply to the module fails), then activating this option will guarantee that the socket remains active even in a fail state. If this option is not activated, then the socket is reset after every bus connection failure.

In safety-critical controllers, it should be carefully examined whether this function should be activated, since this output is kept active if the system fails.

Reserve (hide in visualization)
If you have a socket in your system that you do not user, you can hide this socket in the app “sockets” by activating the option “reserve (hide in visualization) (located in the parameter panel). (To unhide, the socket can be found in the app “hardware”).

Change mode
If you want to change the mode, i.e. convert socket to a digital output, then this can be done by changing the mode in the socket’s parameter panel.


The socket can be used for a scene (in as far as it has been named). In the scene’s “if….”, select the socket and one of the following possibilities:

Switch off
The socket is switched off.

Switch on
The socket is switched on.

Switch on for
The socket is switched on for the time you define.

The status of the socket is toggled.
