  • Detail planning: Planning a ready-to-use system with just a few clicks.
    • The ABB-Welcome system is configured in four steps.
      • Select menu item ""Building"" in the detail planning option.
      • Specify the scope of your system in menu items ""Indoor station"" and ""Outdoor station"".
        • Imagine your plan as a large building which can have numerous floors. Each floor can contain several apartments and up to four indoor devices can be planned in each apartment.
        • A one-family house is a house with one floor in which one residential unit is to be planned. This is also the starting situation for each new plan.
        • Start your plan with the indoor stations.
          • Menu item Indoor stations
            • Equipping an apartment
              • In the right column select the indoor device suitable for the apartment by clicking on the ""Add"" button.. You can install up to four indoor devices in the one apartment.
              • Tip
                • You can adapt the numerous indoor devices on offer to your requirements. The filter functions above the devices serve for this purpose. This will assist you in assuring that only devices of a certain colour or from a specific switch range, or only audio devices are displayed.
            • Planning additional apartments
              • To be able to plan additional apartments on the same floor, you can add an empty apartment with the buttons at the top right or copy the apartment with its devices that is currently displayed.
              • This allows you to plan almost any number of apartments on the one floor.
              • Tip
                • You can also change the equipment of these additional apartments by adding further indoor devices or by deleting devices that have been previously added.
                • With the adding or deleting function you only change the equipment of the apartment that is currently displayed in the centre of the browser window (blue background). All other apartments remain untouched.
            • Planning additional floors
              • If the planning of a floor has been completed, you can add additional empty floors with the buttons on the left side or copy the floor you are currently editing (blue background) with all its apartments and devices.
              • The copying functions are extremely helpful for large buildings in which all apartments are identical or are to be similarly equipped.
              • After copying, you can change the equipment of each individual apartment on each floor.
          • Menu item Outdoor stations
            • Outdoor stations means front doors, gates, gateways or other locations at which a visitor is to ring the bell. The bell button directly at an apartment door is not included. This is called a floor call button (FCB) and is installed directly at the respective indoor station.
            • You can install up to four outdoor stations, which can also be equipped differently (video/audio, number of bell buttons)
              • Equipping an outdoor station
                • Select the outdoor device suitable for the outdoor station from the right column by clicking the ""Add"" button.
                • If you have already planned indoor stations, the configurator will first display only outdoor devices with the corresponding number of bell buttons.
                • With the filter functions above the devices you can restrict or extend the options for selecting at any time.
            • Planning additional outdoor stations
              • To be able to plan additional outdoor stations, you can add an empty outdoor station with the buttons at the top right or copy the outdoor station that is currently displayed.
                • Each outdoor station can be equipped differently (video/audio, number of bell buttons).
      • With menu item ""Wiring"" you specify how the devices are connected with each other.
        • Here you can choose between four types of wiring that are ideal. Mixed forms of wiring types are to be planned manually and are not supported by the configurator.
        • The configurator automatically determines the number of cables required and indicates these in the overview connection plan. It is absolutely essential to check whether the cabling provided by the plan already exists onsite.
        • Star-type cabling is always assumed for the wiring of the outdoor stations.
          • Star-type cabling
            • A suitable two-core cable is fed star-type from a central main- or sub-distribution to each indoor device.
          • Rising mains
            • The indoor devices to be installed are to be connected together directly from floor to floor with a suitable two-core cable. The cable is generally routed from within the apartment to the next apartment above. The signal is ""looped"".
          • Floor distributor
            • One or several two-core cables are located in the stairwell, for example. Each of the individual apartments is connected to them with a stub line.
          • Looped to the floor
            • One or several two-core cables are located in the stairwell, for example. Branching from these cables into the individual apartments is carried out not star-type, but only to one indoor device. Also the further devices located on the floor are connected (looped) in series to them.
      • Have the result of your planning displayed and output in menu item ""Result"".
        • Here you will find a complete parts list of all devices and accessories planned for your system, including catalogue prices.
