Action Glossary

Overview

Each of the 16 messages can be mapped to an action executed on the MC6.
This glossary provides the descriptions for the list of actions.

 

It is important to pair actions correctly as executing certain actions, like the Long Press, will trigger other actions as well, like a Press action.

Press

A single tap to the switch.

A Long Press action will also execute a Press action. Hence, if you want to execute 2 different actions with a Press and Long Press message, you should use a Release and Long Press message instead.

Release

Releasing the switch after a Press action.

Long Press

A single tap to the switch that is held down for at least 600ms.

Take note: Instead of a ‘Press' action for your other messages, you should now use a ‘Release' action instead. This is because 'Press' will be triggered the moment a switch is pressed down regardless of whether it is a short or long press. Using 'Release’ will solve this issue.

Long Press Release

Releasing the switch after a Long Press action.

Double Tap

A double consecutive tap to the switch.

Does not execute a Press action

If a Preset is programmed with a Double Tap, there will be a slight delay in sending out messages programmed with other actions such as Press, as the controller needs to determine if a double tap action has been executed.

Double Tap Release

Releasing the switch after a Double Tap action.

Long Double Tap

A double consecutive tap to the switch that is held down for at least 600ms.

Long Double Tap Release

Releasing the switch after a Long Double Tap action.
