[ENG] 8.1 [DKSF 54.3 IU] What Is «Schedule», and How to Configure It?

The module «Schedule» allows setting a schedule, according to which a relay will be switched on and off.

To configure the module «Schedule», there is a need to go to the page «SCHEDULE 1» (for a relay 1), «SCHEDULE 2» (for a relay 2), «SCHEDULE 3» (for a relay 3), «SCHEDULE 4» (for a relay 4) of a device web interface:

Configuring a module Schedule in a web interface of a NetPing 4PWR-220 v4SMS device

Status

Local Clock – shows a current time, a day of the week and a date.

Local Time Shift – is a time zone. It is configured on the page «SETUP» of a device web interface.

NTP Status – displays a status of time synchronization via an NTP protocol. An NTP address of servers is configured on the page «SETUP» of a device web interface.

Setup

Enable Schedule To Control Relay – is the activation of a relay control. If a checkbox is not checked, a relay will not be controlled from the module «Schedule».

Relay State if Local Time is not set properly determines a reaction of a relay in the moment of resetting time in the embedded clock of a device. The next modes are possible: «Permanent On», «Permanent Off», «Ignore Fault».

This setting is activated when the time is reset to the date before 2000. If the time will be rest to the date after 2000, then a device will not use this setting.

Permanent On – when the clock is reset, a  relay will be always on regardless a configured schedule.

Permanent Off – when the clock is reset, a relay will be always off regardless a configured schedule.

Ignore Fault – when the clock is reset, a relay will continue to work on the basis of a configured schedule.

After setting all necessary parameters, there is a need to click the button «Apply changes».

Weekly Schedule

In the section «Weekly schedule (Channel 1)/(Channel 2)/(Channel 3)/(Channel 4)», a schedule for controlling a corresponding relay is configured. For each day of the week, it is possible to configure four intervals of switching on/off a relay.

An interval starts with the time of switching a relay on (column «On») and ends with the time of switching a relay off (column «Off»). Time is indicated in the format «hh:mm» in a range 00:00 – 23:59. The time must increase from left to right: in the interval, the time of switching on must be before the time of switching off, the time of switching on in the interval 2 must be later than the time of switching off in the interval 1. Cells can be left empty, in this case, the next filled cell will work. It is acceptable, for example, to switch on a relay on «Mon» and switch it off on «Fri».

A column «Same as prev. day» allows applying a schedule of a day to the next one in one click, which makes configuring a schedule easier. To do this, there is a need to check a corresponding checkbox.

The time of the action («On» or «Off»), that was executed the last, is displayed in bold on the page, which allows to rapidly determine which action and in which interval will be executed next.

After setting all necessary parameters, there is a need to click the button «Apply changes».

Holidays' Substitution

The points of a drop-down menu «Aux 1», «Aux 2», «Aux 3» allow setting a specific schedule for holidays. These schedules are linked to holidays in the section «Holidays' Substitution».

The section «Holidays' Substitution» allows setting a specific schedule for holidays or linking a schedule of any workday to a holiday. A memory of a device can store up to eight holidays.

In the line «Date», a date of a holiday is specified in the format «dd.mm» in a range of 01.01 – 31.12.

In the line «Substitute», a schedule is indicated that will be used on this day. A drop-down list allows choosing the next variants: «Mon», «Tue», «Wed», «Thu», «Fri», «Sat», «Sun», «П 1», «П 2», «П 3».
