Introduction
Using the OBELISK top2 software it is possible to create programs and
settings on a PC for your device, save them as a project and transfer them
to the device via the OBELISK top2 memory card. As long as the
OBELISK top2 memory card is inserted in the device you can use the
switching program on the OBELISK top2 memory card without having to
delete the switching program on the device.

LUNA top2
All devices in the LUNA top2 product group are equipped with a light
sensor. The light function of the light sensors is always preset (Light
function active
). The lux values for switching the connected
devices on and off can be set as required. If the defined Lux value (
)
is under run, the device will switch on after the delay time is completed. If
the defined Lux value (
) is exceeded, the device will switch off after
the delay time is completed.
The Fix Off (
) button allows the device to be switched off independently of the set lux values for a defined length of time. The Fix On
(
) button allows the device to be switched on independently of the
set lux values for a defined length of time.
7.1
Select channel
 First, select just one channel for devices with several channels.
Fig. 52: Channel selection
7.2
Set lux value of the light sensor
Lux value settings vary according to the type of device, see chapter 17
"Device features".
As eyes are already accustomed to the dark when lights are switched off,
e.g. with street lamps, the lux value can be set at a lower level for
switching off than the lux value required for switching on. This means that
the switch on can activated earlier (e.g. switch on in the evening at 25 lux;
switch off in the morning at 15 lux).
1) Select the Light tab.
2) Enter switch-on and switch-off lux values.
Fig. 53: Switch-on and switch-off lux values

3) Set delay times according to prevailing conditions to avoid
unintentional switching on and off again.

The delay times and lux values of the switching times entered in the Light
register apply to the standard program.
The extra program lux values have priority in the set date range; see
chapter Fehler! Verweisquelle konnte nicht gefunden werden. "Extra

The switching times that are repeated on a weekly basis can be set via the

Night switch-off and day switch-on
The following example contains a night switch-off and a day switch-on.
The remaining time is controlled by a light sensor.
Example: Lighting display windows
On weekdays display window lighting should be switched on from 6.30 to
8 am and from 4 to 6 pm. On weekdays, night switch-off should be from 8
pm to 6.30 am. The lighting should also be switched off at weekends (from
Friday 8 pm to Monday 6.30 am). The light function is active for the
remaining times, i.e. switching follows independent of the set lux values.

Extra programs 1 and 2 offer programs that differ from the standard program by defining a date range, e.g. for bank holidays, holidays etc. And
variable lux settings can be set in addition to the switching times.
The extra programs have priority over the standard program and extra
program 2 has priority over extra program 1.
The settings for the extra program are entered in tabular form.
It is possible to makes entries for a Fix date, Fix date every year, Easter
rule or Apply Public holiday.
See chapter 5.4 for creating and editing public holiday settings.
7.4.1
Setting the extra program without night switch-off
In the following program, the night switch-off in the standard program is
left out. Exterior lighting is therefore exclusively controlled by the light
sensor.
Example: External lighting of a church
On the Easter weekend and at Christmas the external lighting is switched
on earlier and stays on throughout the night.
1) Select the Extra program register.
2) Enter lux values Lux On and Lux Off.

Devices in the SELEKTA top2 product group are astronomic timers. They
calculate the exact switching times for sunrise and sunset according to
location and time zone. The Fix Off (
) button allows the device
to be switched off independently of the astro functions for a defined length
of time. The Fix On
button allows the device to be switched on
independently of the astro functions for a defined length of time.
8.1
Setting the astro function
The relevant data for determining the astro time are set in the Astro
register. They are offset, astro mode and the position.
1. Select the Astroregister.
2. If required, enter the offset values for sunrise
and sunset.

3. Under astro mode you can choose between
ON at sunset + AUS at sunrise,
OFF at sunset + ON at sunrise,

The extra programs (extra program 1 = astro function, extra program 2 =
continuous ON function, extra program 3 = continuous OFF function) have
priority over the standard program. The lowest numbered extra program
has the lowest priority.
The settings for the extra program are entered in tabular form.
The date range allows you to define the scope of the extra program. It is
possible to make entries for a Fixed date, Fixed date each year, the Easter

Start on Monday 01.11.2010 at midnight, end on Monday 08.11.2010 at
midnight, repeat start after 14 days)
Day of the week rule (Example: Every month on the first weekend from
Saturday 6am until Sunday 6pm: Start on the first Sunday each month at

Chinese New Year (date range dependent on Chinese New Year: 20 days
before and 20 days after Chinese New Year)
Transfer public holiday settings: The public holidays entered in the public
holiday setting can be transferred to the date range.
Example of programming standard and extra programs
Switch on street lighting at midday 30 April to midday 1 May
The standard program switches on street lighting depending on Astro
times. A night-time interruption is programmed from 11pm to 4am.
The extra program 1 is active in the date range from midday 30 April to
midday 1 May. Night-time interruption is not programmed so that the street
lighting is not on all night.
