Management Station Schedules

Schedules Workspace – View Mode

Schedules Workspace – Edit Mode

You can create weekly schedules for your management stations, and a management station can run multiple calendars or schedules at the same time. Management station schedules and calendars run only if the management station is running.

Management station schedules make use of scenes that are objects which allow you to create multiple operating modes for a schedule. You can add and associate datapoints with the scenes and specify the values for the datapoints for different scene modes such that when the schedule is in that particular mode, the datapoint will reflect that value. For example, consider that you have created 3 scenes, Office Opening Time, Lunch Time, and Office Closing Time and you want to have different temperatures in each of the 3 scene modes. In this case, you can associate 3 analog output points to each of the scenes with values that should be present at each of the 3 scene modes.

Additionally, management station schedules can process both BACnet and non-BACnet object types (BACnet schedules process only BACnet object types).

You can also create exceptions to schedules. When a management station exception is ON, it overrides the weekly schedule.

When the exception is OFF, control returns to the weekly schedule.
