    Default Powerbar 6E - Can't get ports to stay on

    Setting up a new Profilux 4, 2 dosers, KH director and powerbar. I have added the Powerbar 6Evia the PAB assign, however all of the electrical plugs for the other components are not getting any current. I've tried to change the initial states all to "ON" (blue checkmarks) but they remain off. I am however able to activate each port individually if I go into the Switch Channels menu and select "activate manual override." But as soon as I turn off manual mode, the ports all turn off.

    Help please!

    Hello,

    it seems you haven't done yet the basic configuration of your ProfiLux 4. Using default settings all switch sockets are set to 'Always Off'.
    After assigning the Powerbar 6E-PAB to the PAB-system, the Always Off setting takes effect.
    If you instead disconnect the PAB-cable, the fallback state kicks in and sets each socket as defined through 'Initial States' as described here:

    There are detailled guides available for the ProfiLux 4 configuration, which you might want to read to fully setup your ProfiLux4 and the Powerbar 6E:

    To add to what MatthiasF mentioned, you will get the expected reaction from each Powerbar socket after you have assigned a certain function to them. The quick start article for the ProfiLux 4 provides you with a roadmap of things you can do with your controller, many of which involve assigning functions to your Powerbar.
