  • At 07.00, set 400 and 420 nm LEDs to full power (1000 units). Set the 660 nm LED to 500 units.
  • At 11.00, add set the 530 nm LED to 600 units output.
  • At 23.00, turn off all light channels (0 units).

Please follow this procedure to set a schedule for your fixture.

  2. In the Intensities (1-1000) field, set the desired intensity levels for each wavelength.
  3. Click ''Add to schedule''. The intensity values are copied to the first schedule row.
  4. In the Schedule field, enter a start time for the light event in the HH:MM:SS field.
  5. Click the (+) button to add the light event to the schedule. A new light event row is added to the schedule.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 to add additional light events to the schedule.

NOTE !

  • The schedule relies on the lights time/clock. Please always verify that the lights time is set correct [click here for description].
  • The clock in the fixtures will keep its time 40-48 hours without external power. After 40-48 hours the clock will be reset. Verify that the clock is set correctly if the fixture has been without power for any significant amount of time.
  • Schedule events override manual events. Example: In a fixture, the light events are scheduled for 13:00 and 14:00. The schedule is running. At 13:15 a manual change to the setting is made. The new setting will hold until 14:00 at which time the next schedule event will be set.
