Hello, I am new to this great forum and also new to GHL world.
Couple weeks ago I bought my Profilux 4 set and later I also bought a powerhub. Today I found my time to finally get some wires and start building some connections from powerhub to my devices. But surprise - powerhub seems fully operational but no output power on all sockets.
In GHL app I assigned new PAB device, assigned start switch number, then I manually switched all sockets, powerhub turn on all red LEDs, even some noise were made when relays had turned on. But output is without power. I check it with my electrical screwdriver and my (no)powered device.
Am I missing something or I have received scrap. Please help.

You are probably missing something - it is not a scrape :p

What are you going to control with the PowerHub? 24 V DC. 12V DC or 230 V AC?

Below you can see an example how to connect a power hub to your system. The outlet 1-6 is only single relays there you will break the phase of a AC current or a positive DC current. MY two connections is only examples - you can vary the way you want - but the contacts to the right is L and N for your grids AC - I think you have 240 V 50 Hz where you live

Here is my build with 4 hubs and 12 and 24 V DC connections and also 240 V AC connections.

Hello Lasse, thank you very much for your help.
Yes, powerhub works flawlessly. My fault. I in parallel consulted this with my friend, who also has P4 but not powerhub, and he pointed out that the powerhub outputs could be more as switcher to open-close circuit.
I at first understood powerhub more as an other type of a powerbar with sockets. So I thought that outpus have L & N line of AC input.
What is new for me, that you use these "outputs" also for switching DC. That's great, I don't need many power sources, each for one switched device but only one eg. 24V and switch only its outputs like you showed on the picture.
