This page generates programming instructions for RAK-2 and RCS series systems that have firmware version 6 in the embedded RFC-1. Users of earlier models, including RAK-1 systems and stand-alone RFC-1 systems, should use the programming pages that are compatible with those models.
Program a Timed Event
The RFC-1/B can perform functions based on time and date. An automatic function requires both a date/time trigger and an action sequence.
An action sequence is a series of instructions stored in memory to perform a task. It has no information about when the task occurs.
- An action sequence is a stored set of instructions that perform a task
- An action sequence is triggered by an alarm or a date/time trigger
- The system stores stores eight action sequences
Action sequences can operate control relays, print readings, etc. A typical action sequence to turn on a transmitter is activate a relay, pause several seconds, then activate another relay.
The RFC-1 can store eight action sequences. Each sequence can have eight steps. Steps are performed in order and the sequence terminates at the first blank step.
As of firmware version 6, action sequence 1 is not used in the factory settings. All eight programmable action sequences are unused by default.
A date/time trigger causes an action sequence to occur at a specific time. It contains timing information but no specifics about the task that it triggers.
- A date/time trigger starts an action sequence to perform a task
- The system stores stores between 48 and 80 date/time triggers
The number of available date/time triggers is effected by the number of telemtry channels that are used. Memory from unused telemetry channels is used to increase the number of date/time triggers.
Use the selections below to setup a timed event. All items must be completed.
The values and adresses will be calculated and displayed. Click the "Show Instructions" button to display step-by-step programming instructions.
