Connecting the TAP-5 to Loxone Miniserver

The TAP-5 connects to the Loxone Miniserver or Loxone Extension using a CAT cable. The striped CAT cable pushes directly into the back of the TAP-5 with the push-fit connectors, and is then terminated directly into the Loxone digital inputs.

If you want to measure the temperature of the room simply connect the 1-wire temperature sensor to the Loxone 1-wire module. The temperature sensor is powered by a small power supply inside the TAP-5 for reliability and it should therefore be wired as if it was separately powered. The GND should be connected to GND and the "Temp" output of the TAP-5 should connect to DQ input of the Loxone 1-wire module.


Remember that the Loxone Air Extension has a 1-wire input built in as an alternative to a separate Loxone 1-wire module. A single Loxone 1-wire input can be connected to upto 20 temperature sensors. The TAP-5 supports wiring in parallel and this is useful when you have two switches that have the same functions, for example two switches either side of a bed.

We recommend connecting the TAP-5 via the Loxone Tree bus see: Using a Faradite TAP-5 with Loxone Tree
