Selection of a light point
When the program is launched, it is in listening mode and waits for the reception of a number from a light point. The program waits up to 50 seconds for an address to be received. To stop this mode, simply press any key on the keyboard.
If a light point is detected, then its number is displayed in the “Detector N°” box. If no light point is detected within 50 seconds, press the “Wait for No” button again or manually enter the number in the “Detector No” field.
In a street, the “Wait for number” mode is very practical, because all you have to do is pass under a light point for its number to be recognized directly.
Programming the number of a light point
After detecting a light point, it is possible to assign it a new number. This operation must be done conscientiously, because it involves a lot of changes. By changing the number of a light point, the interaction between the other light points on the street will no longer be established.
The new number must be entered in the “Program number” field and then transmitted using the “Program” button. If the operation went well, the new number must appear in the “Detector N°” field, otherwise, the old number will still be indicated in the “Detector N°” field.
It is very important not to assign an identical number to two light points, this would cause a communication problem.
Using the “Read parameters” and “Send parameters” buttons, the light point can be programmed at any time.
All parameters can be set according to the graph below:
Radio communication settings
The radio parameters can be modified according to the configuration of use in a street (spacing between the luminaires, radio pollution, etc.).
It is recommended not to change these options.
All luminaires that need to interact with each other must be on the same channel. If it is decided to use channel B, when starting the program, switch the programming box to the “BOX channel” field.
The addresses to which the light point should be sensitive can be read and programmed using the “Read addresses” and “Send addresses” buttons. Only the useful addresses must be entered, the boxes left empty will be automatically completed by the address 0.
This tool makes it possible to simulate the detection of a light point and to transmit the number of this light point, entered in the field “Send a number for test”. This makes it possible in particular to test the operation of the other light points programmed with this number.
