Slow PWM Output¶
Similar to PWM, the Slow PWM Output platform allows you to control GPIO pins by pulsing them on/off over a longer time period. It could be used to control a heating element through a relay where a fast PWM update cycle would not be appropriate.
This is for slow PWM output. For fast-switching PWM outputs (for example, lights), see these outputs:
# Example configuration entry output: - platform: slow_pwm pin: D1 id: my_slow_pwm period: 15s
id (Required, ID): The id to use for this output component.
period (Required, Time): The duration of each cycle. (i.e. a 10s period at 50% duty would result in the pin being turned on for 5s, then off for 5s)
pin (Optional, Pin Schema): The pin to pulse.
state_change_action (Optional, Automation): An automation to perform when the load is switched. If a lambda is used the boolean
stateparameter holds the new status.
turn_on_action (Optional, Automation): An automation to perform when the load is turned on. Can be used to control for example a switch or output component.
turn_off_action (Optional, Automation): An automation to perform when the load is turned off.
turn_off_actionmust be configured together.
restart_cycle_on_state_change (Optional, boolean): Restart a timer of a cycle when new state is set. Defaults to
All other options from Output.
pinis defined the GPIO pin state is writen before any action is executed.
turn_off_actioncan be used togther.
state_change_actionis called before
turn_off_action. It’s recommended to use either
turn_off_actionto change the state of an output. Using both automations together is only recommended for monitoring.
output: - platform: slow_pwm id: my_slow_pwm period: 15s turn_on_action: - lambda: |- auto *out1 = id(output1); out1->turn_on(); turn_off_action: - output.turn_off: output1
