Page 4 Select TIME to activate Timer each day. Select DAWN to activate timer based on the Sunrise, or DUSK to activate this timer based on the Sunset. Select NEVER for no activation. TIME Use the – and + buttons to select the Timer activation Hour (24 hour military time). Press NEXT/SET when 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. Let’s program the clock ….. Page 3 Page 2 Programming Press YES to begin addressing UPB devices (modules, switches, etc.). Press NO or SET/NEXT to go to Timers.
