Equipment
However, these options are only available if the Plena
Weekly Timer Configuration software is being used.
3.1
Introduction
The intuitive front panel allows users to easily switch
between the two programmable schedules. The
programmable output contacts can also be manually
activated, allowing for random events to take place; for
example, if a door lock has to be suddenly opened
(before the scheduled time), the user can push one of
the 6 output contact buttons on the front panel of the
unit. The Timer will re-lock the door as programmed
during the next applicable event.
The Plena Weekly Timer (which is perfectly suited for
connecting to the Plena Message Manager and Voice
Alarm System) is an accurate timer for use in public
address systems. It is ideal for schools, shopping malls
and all other venues, where regularly timed messages,
signals or other controls (such as the automatic locking
and unlocking of doors) are required.
The Timer can be programmed from:
• the controls on the front panel.
• a PC which has the Plena Weekly Timer
Configuration software installed.
If the Timer is programmed using the configuration
software, a USB cable is required to connect the PC to
the Timer.
A pause button also allows users to temporarily suspend
all events, with the exception of the clock display, while
pressing and holding the rotary selector allows the user
to lock all controls of the front panel. This safety feature
prevents unscheduled events from being accidently
activated.
See figure 3.1 (on the next page) for a schematic
overview of the Plena Weekly Timer.
The Timer has an audio input and output (cinch and
XLR) for attenuating BGM signals (see figure 3.1). The
volume can be directly controlled from the front panel,
or programmed to lower at set times. The Timer will
then automatically select the programmed volume at the
start of the next event.
This allows users to automatically adjust the background
music to suit the time of day; for example, music can be
automatically attenuated in the morning or evening
hours, or BGM can only be allowed at certain times of
the day.
Any single event can consist of:
• one of 14 pre-programmed chimes (which are
broadcast via the audio throughput).
• adjusting (or switching off) of the Back Ground
Music (BGM) - attenuation.
• any combination of output contacts that have
internal relays for connecting to numerous types of
equipment. There are 6 output contacts in total.
The Timer has a clock sync. input for synchronizing the
time with an external source; the correct time can also
be downloaded from a PC. This allows the Timer to be
synchronized with a time server. The Timer clock also
keeps track of the date, ensuring for the correct display
of weekdays, and automatic Summer/ Winter time
(daylight saving time) settings (according to European,
North American, user defined dates).
The output contacts can be set to: open, close, or
generate a pulse.
The Timer has a 24V backup power input with reversepolarity protection, as well as a backup battery that
preserves the correct clock setting. Synchronization is
done via the USB port. There is an RS-232 connector
on the back panel for connecting the Timer to a large
separate display.
The Timer has two weekly schedules that can be
individually programmed. Each day of the week has a
separate event set, which means that two separate
schedules can be programmed for any one day. Events
can be programmed to an accuracy of one minute, and
there is no limit to the number of events.
Pulse duration can be globally programmed, and
chimes shorter than one minute can be set to repeat a
number of times in the general system settings.

Connecting other Plena devices
The following inputs and outputs can be used to connect
the Timer to other Plena devices (see figure 3.7):
• Audio loop through - Cinch input
• Audio loop through - Cinch output
• Audio loop through - XLR input (female)
• Audio loop through - XLR output (male)
The cinch input and XLR input, as well as the cinch
output and XLR output are connected in parallel (see
figure 3.1).
This means that the Timer can be connected to other
Plena devices, using any combination of audio loop
through inputs and outputs.
For example, the “PLN-DVDT cinch out” can be
connected to the “Timer cinch in”, and the “Timer XLR
out” can be connected to the “Mixer Amplifier XLR in”
(preferred set-up). The “Timer cinch out” can also be
connected to the “Mixer Amplifier cinch in”.

Programming an event
1 Make sure the Timer is switched on (see section 4).
2 Momentarily press and release the Set button. The
Program LEDs on the front panel will be alternately
lit (see figure 7.1).
This section describes how to use the controls on the
front of the Timer to program a schedule. The Timer
can also be programmed from a PC, using the Plena
Weekly Timer Configuration software (see section 8).
For a clear overview of the programmable schedule,
first see figure 8.14 in section 8.8.1. This figure shows
the Schedule programming window, which can be used
to program the Timer from a PC, using the Plena
Weekly Timer Configuration software.
The advantages of using the Plena Weekly Timer
Configuration software are:
• data can be quickly and easily entered.
• the user has a clear overview of the programmed
events.
• schedules can be created remotely, and by numerous
users.
• the schedule can be saved as a software file, and
printed out if required.
Note
If a PC is used to program the Timer, you must
disconnect the USB cable before using the
Timer. If you do not disconnect the USB cable,
the performance of the Timer might be affected.
figure 7.1: Selecting a program
3 Press and hold in the Program button for the
program you want to edit. The selected Program
LED will remain lit.
Note
If you selected the wrong program to edit, you
can press the Program button (1 or 2) to switch
between the two programs. The selected
program for editing will be displayed on the
main display, and the relevant LED will be lit.
4 Press and hold in the rotary selector to start the
programming sequence. The full display will reappear, and the day of the week will start to flash
(see figure 7.2).
Note
If you want to leave the programming sequence
at any time without changing the settings, press
the Set button.

to flash.
7 Select the minutes and confirm. The event symbol
will start to flash, and the next available event
number will be displayed (see figure 7.3).
Note
If at this point you only want to edit or view
previously programmed events, see section 7.3
instead. Once you have pushed the rotary
selector, you will have to continue programming
the new event. See next step.
