Desktop Time Clock Installation Manual (v3.10)
Thank you for purchasing the ControlScape Desktop Time Clock. Please follow the simple
instructions below to complete your installation. Enjoy!
Basic Operation
Once the ControlScape Desktop Time
Clock has been set-up it will
automatically control the landscape
lighting according to the timers (actual
time or sunrise/sunset) enabled during
initial installation. However, the Desktop
Time Clock still acts as a manual
switching device for the landscape lights
that are on the system. Simply press the
All On or All Off buttons on the first page
to turn all lights on or off. For individual
light control, press the NEXT/SET button.
Lights 1-4 will appear. Press the
corresponding button to toggle the first
four landscape lighting loads on and off.
Use the – and + buttons to select the Timer activation
Minute. Press NEXT/SET when finished.
DAWN
DUSK
Use the – and + buttons to select the Times Dawn Offset
(number of minutes before or after sunrise). The Offset can be
up to – or + 128 minutes. Press NEXT/SET when finished.
Use the – and + buttons to select the Times Dusk Offset
(number of minutes before or after sunset). The Offset can
be up to – or + 128 minutes. Press NEXT/SET when
finished.
Use the – and + buttons to set Device #1 to either On, Off, an On
Intensity (if dimmable), or No Change. Button 3 will select “No
Change” directly. No Change means that the light will not be
affected by the timer event. If it is on, it will stay on, and vice versa. Simply step through each
device and set its desired state when the timer event completes.
Repeat the above steps for all 8 timers.
Select YES to view all settings made during previous steps.
Use NEXT/SET to scroll through settings.
To gain control of the next group of light loads, press the NEXT/SET button again. The
NEXT/SET button will take you through all controlled light loads and return to the All On/All Off
page.
On the main page (shown above), button 4 is “TIMERS”. This button will engage and disengage
the timers. When the timers are in the “OFF” state, a “Timers Are Off” message will flash on the
screen. This may be useful when you going on vacation or if you just do not want the lights to
come on automatically.
Reset Factory Defaults
To reset the Desktop Control Clock to factory defaults, unplug the unit then press and hold
buttons 3, 4 and Next/Set simultaneously. While holding buttons 3, 4 and Next/Set, plug the unit
back in. Continue to hold the buttons for about 6 seconds. Release the buttons and reset is
complete.
Diagnostics Mode
It is helpful to know that when a button is pressed, the clock looks at the current state of the light
load and performs the opposite function. If the light is “ON”, turn it “OFF”. If you press the button
to turn “ON” a load, the clock waits for confirmation from the device, before inverting the status.
So, if the light went on, and the status did not invert, the clock did not receive a confirmation
from the device. Therefore, pressing the button again will send another “ON” command, and the
light, of course, will not go “OFF”. This would indicate a signal problem between the Device and
the Time Clock or noise presence. UPB is designed to operate well on very low signal. However,
if there is weak signal and strong noise, the noise can be drowning out the signal. Weak signal
may be due to a lack of Phase Communication. We recommend using a Phase Coupler to be
sure signal is being sent on both phases of the electrical service.
To place the Desktop Control Clock in “Diagnostics Mode”, press and hold the Next/Set
button and plug the unit in. Continue to hold the Next/Set button for about 6 seconds. The clock
will enter “Diagnostics Mode”. In this mode, the clock will send a signal to the selected device
and the device will report back the signal level it received and the level of any noise. In the next
step, the clock reports back the same information about the return message from the device.
Signal, is a report of signal level from the last message the clock received. Therefore, if it
receives a message back from Device 1, but Device 2 does not respond, the clock will report the
signal from the last message it received, which in this case, was the message from Device 1.
Overview
The ControlScape Desktop Timer can control up to 16 “devices” or “receivers”. There are
several receiver devices available depending on the need. In your job, each transformer will
require a separate “device” or “receiver”. This is usually a “plug in relay module”. If you are also
controlling high voltage loads, such as porch lights or floods, each of those light loads will
require a receiving device. This is usually a dimmer or switch.
Each “device” will have its own address and the job will have a “Network ID” or NID. The
“Network ID” is necessary, as UPB is quite powerful and if your neighbor is on the same system
with the same “Network ID”, you could be turning their lights on and off.
So through this setup, each device will get a separate address, but they must all have the same
Network ID. The clock will only talk to that network. For example, transformer #1 may be NID 1,
Device 1. Transformer #2 will be NID 1, Device 2. Transformer #3 will be NID 1, Device 3. The
flood lights will be NID 1, Device 4, and so on.
During timer operation, the clock might be programmed to turn on transformer #1 and 2 at dusk.
It will send an “ON” command to NID 1, Device 1 and NID 1 Device 2. In manual operation,
pressing the button for Device 8, will send an ON or OFF command to NID 1, Device 8. If the
light is off the ON command is sent. If it is on, the OFF command is sent.

Programming
Press YES to begin addressing UPB devices (modules,
switches, etc.). Press NO or SET/NEXT to go to Timers.
To enter “Programming Mode”, press the NEXT/SET button for up to 3 seconds until you see
“Set Time/Date”.
Press YES to scan for an open UPB Network. This assures
that the Timer will not interfere with other UPB systems in
the area. Select NO to set the network ID manually. Do
not scan on an existing setup, as it will find the devices that
are already installed and try to use a different Network ID.
Select YES to set Time and Date. Select NO or press the
NEXT/SET button to skip to Location Settings.
YES
Use the – and + buttons to select the current HOUR.
