  • All category options are listed

All category options are located on the right side of the Home screen and are selected using the main scroll wheel. Turn the black scroll wheel clockwise or counterclockwise until the desired category is highlighted in light blue. Press the scroll wheel inward to select and enter the desired category.

Choose a category below for a full overview.



Programs Screen

The PROGRAMS (schedules) screen is where all daily running programs are set up. Programs are set by calling up fixtures that have been assigned to groups or themes. Learn more

A Program consists of the following information:

  • Program Letter - Each program is designated by a letter ("A" through "G") at the top right section of the screen.
  • Days of the Week - Selecting days of the week designates which days the program will run based on the event settings.
  • 365 Data-Based Programming - Calendar programming allows a program(s) to run during specific dates throughout the year.
  • Event - This field specifies how the system initiates each Event.
  • Time - This field specifies what time the programmed event will occur.
  • Color - This field specifies which group or theme is associated with each event.
  • Intensity - This field specifies the desired color for group events.



A THEME is a planned set of groups at stated colors and intensities. A user can call up themes in the Program menu for quick setting of a series of groups, or in the Manual menu for on-demand control. Common uses for themes include location based (e.g., gazebo) and lifestyle-based (e.g., vacation or party). Learn more



The COLOR tab adds to existing zoning and dimming options. A color system requires that a ZDC LED board is installed into each desired FX Luminaire LED fixture. Standard and ZD enabled FX Luminaire fixtures will zone and zone/dim, respectively, but color is achieved only through the use of specific ZDC LED boards. Learn more



The MANUAL mode is used to turn on and adjust lights outside of the set programs. Manual settings will always take precedence over any currently running programs. Learn more

Activity Screen

After five minutes of inactivity, an Activity screen will appear on the LCD screen if the lights are running. The wait time is reduced to only five seconds when the current screen is the Home screen.

The Activity screen displays:

  • Chassis load: Amp load of controller chassis. Chassis 1-10 are displayed. Only chassis with an active load will display an orange load bar.
  • Current time
  • Source of transformer load: Manual or Automatic Schedule

No selections can be made on this screen; it is simply an activity display. Press the Home button to return to the Home screen.

Diagnostics Screen

The DIAGNOSTICS screen will display the Assigned Chassis (controller assigned), Controller communicating, Overload Indication, and a Controller load in a percentage.

The assigned chassis numbers do not always correspond with the installed primary and satellite controllers shown on the display. Learn more
