The main menu allows access to configure and edit the following
TouchPanel features and functions:
• Screens
• Set Date & Time
• Scheduled Events
• Set Timezone & Location
• Sequences & Cycles
• Remote control
• Edit Scenes
• Refresh Devices
• Loads
• Backlight Timeout
• Controls
• Calibrate screen
Button Appearance The TouchPanel includes five built-in button styles which can be changed
to suit user requirements by adjusting the following;
• Button Width
• Button Text Color
• Button position
The TouchPanel’s screen wizard allows the buttons to be arrayed in predefined patterns. By default the TouchPanel will show 4 Scenes, Raise/
Lower and Off but this can easily be changed to 2, 4, 8 or up to 12 buttons
per screen.
Edit Button Function
By editing the function of each individual button the TouchPanel can
perform the following commands
• Call a scene (Max, Min, Off)
• Modifier Up
• Modifier Down
• Change Screen
Button Text Editor
The TouchPanel buttons are pre-named but these can be edited to suit
user requirements. The qwerty and numeric keyboard permits upper and
lower case text entry. Buttons can be resized to suit the length of the
entered text.
Back-up & Restore via USB
The TouchPanel allows all of its settings to be backed up and restored,
including copying of settings from one TouchPanel to another.
Sequencing & Cycles
Scene changes can be automatically linked together to form sequences
or cycles. The delay time between scenes can be seperatly set. The
sequence or cycle may be started or stopped by the user from the
scheduler or by an external control.
Password Protection
A user defined password must be supplied in order to edit the TouchPanel’s
setup. This prevents the possibility of accidental or malicious changes
occurring. There is also a cleaning function disabling the panel for 20
seconds (by default) allowing the screen to be cleaned without disturbing
any of the programming or effecting any of the light levels.
TouchPanel Scheduler
The TouchPanel Scheduler allows automation of the lighting by triggering
scenes or linking to screens at regular daily or weekly intervals. The
TouchPanel can even schedule events relative to dawn and dusk.This
is particularly useful for security purposes allowing events to occur at
specific times of the day and night even when you are on holiday.
Set Time & Date
During the TouchPanel power-up both the time and date must be entered.
Both time and date are required for triggering timed events which are
programmed using Touchpanels onboard scheduler. The time can be
displayed on any of the screens and is updated every minute.
Time Zone & Location
The Touchpanel can be adjusted to different time zones and also take in
to account daylight savings by utilizing the built in astronomical timeclock.
This ensures that manual adjustment to time sensitive programming is not
Remote Control
The Infra-Red Remote Control (303) is a fully DIGIDIM compatible unit for
use in either DIGIDIM and IMAGINE lighting control systems. All DIGIDIM
control panels and multi-sensor units are fitted with an IR receiver that
allow them to be used in conjunction with the remote control unit.
The remote control unit is fitted with seven buttons that can be used to
control basic system functions such as on/off, raising and lowering the
general light level and the selection of four scenes. The seven buttons
can also be used in various combinations to provide basic programming
functions. This includes creating and adding to groups and setting pre-set
levels or scenes.
• On/off button
• Raise (modifier button)
• Lower (modifier button)
• Four scene recall buttons
The DIGIDIM Multisensor (312) provides energy saving functions when used
in a DALI system. It contains a light sensor, a passive infra-red presence
detector (PIR) and an infra-red receiver that allows the Multisensor to be
operated by the hand held DIGIDIM remote controller. The PIR enables the
system to detect when a room is occupied and the light sensor measures the
level of ambient light available. The infra-red receiver and DIGIDIM remote
controller allow the room occupants to set the required light levels and to
carry out basic system programming. The multisensor is designed to push fit
into a ceiling or luminaire housing.
• Presence detection
• Programmable constant light control for maximum energy efficiency.
• Complete control using the hand held remote.
