Programming a Chelsea Switch
Adding a relay to a switch button
To add a relay to switch button, enter into PROGRAM SWITCH from the USER MENU. Press ENTER on the switch ID# you wish to program, and then press ENTER on the button number you wish to program (buttons are numbered left to right, top to bottom). The mode of the button is selected in the top right hand corner of the button’s display (TOGGLE in this following image):
Select the correct LCP number (panel number), and LOAD number. Use SCROLL UP and SCROLL DOWN to adjust the LCP & LOAD numbers. Press ENTER on the load number to add it to the button. Added loads will appear in bold font, below the word “EDIT”. Press ENTER again on an added load to remove it.
SCROLL UP or SCROLL DOWN on the button mode to change it
This mode will turn any relays added to the button ON.
This mode will turn any relays added to the button OFF.
This mode will toggle (turn on and off) and loads added to the button.
This mode is capable of turning some relays on and others off at the same time.
This mode will hold the ON command, as long as the button is held down.
Assigning a group number, as a buttons mode, will make that button control the chosen group number. The button will use the group’s mode as the mode of operation.
Copying Switch Programming
To copy switch programming, enter into PROGRAM SWITCH from the USER MENU. Select the switch you wish to copy the programming from and press SCROLL UP. Then, select the switch you wish to copy the programming to and press SCROLL DOWN. Press ENTER on ‘Yes’ to confirm.
The ‘Setup Menu’ is a special menu available on some switches, which allows the disabling of buttons, or the changing of a button’s function on the fly. You can access this menu by entering into PROGRAM SWITCH on the USER MENU, entering into a specific switch ID#, and then selecting SETUP and pressing ENTER. To use these features, the switch must be setup as a 14 button switch (see BUS MAP).
