No, if you use assistants to activate/deactivate AC OUT 2 the default behavior of AC OUT 2 is disabled.
If you want this you have to use an additional assistant.

Thanks again for your quick reply!

This is what I made:

(AC2IN = shore power ; AC1IN = generator)

(AC2OUT = heater etc)

Sorry, I am doupting the correct order, because I read this, in other posts:


Working with assistants works with the following rulws

- an ON condition always has priority over an OFF xondition

- multi criteria in the ON ( Or OFF ) list go by the OR principle


When multi assistant control te same output (such as a relay ) , the outcome of the lowest in the list will be the state of the relay

(So when controlling the relay open with one assistant of which the criteria fits. but close with anther were also criteria fit, it depends which is lowest in the list

What you need is the "programmable relay" assistant. And select the AC OUT 2 relay.

Just download, install and start VE.config (VE Configuration tools for VE.Bus Products).
Then click on "Port selection" -> "Fake target with full options" -> select what you need -> OK -> Assistants -> read -> "Do this for me" -> Add assistant -> Relay -> programmable relay -> Start assistant .
There you can see what options you have.
Note that you need one assistant to activate the relay and one to deactivate it.
