  • Specific program step : this is a complete program step defined by a time and a date.
  • Holidays.

Specific Program Step
This is a program step defined by a time and a date, (e.g. ON at 07h on 25th of April).

Sub Programs
10 sub-programs allow definition of a weekly program and the period when this program must be applied, (e.g. from Monday to Saturday : 8h ON / 12h30 OFF/ 14h ON / 18h30 0FF – from 1st of March to 31st of April).

Additional functions

Cyclic Operating
This function enables the user to program repeated cycles, i.e. xx minutes ON / xx minutes OFF. 4 different cycles can be defined. The length of the cycle (ON and OFF time) can be set from 1sec to 9h 59min 59s.

Hour Counter
An hour counter is assigned to each output. It will count the ON switching time and the number of switchings. It will also count the clock running time. These counters are not resettable.

Keyboard Locking via PIN Code
A PIN code can be defined and activated. Once activated, the keyboard is automatically locked after 2 minutes without any action. The user will need the PIN code to unlock the keyboard. This PIN code can be cancelled or modified. A master PIN code will be given to hager (available by the quality department).

External Override Input Setting
This input is to be connected to a pushbutton or a switch (230V +10%, -15%). Available functions are : changeover, permanent ON/OFF, random, timer ON. In the settings menu, the function of the input and the channels concerned can be defined, (example : Timer ON during 1h 45 min on Channel A and C).

In this override mode, to simulate a presence, each program step is randomly shifted by +/- 59 minutes.
