Good morning,

I have a new Apex that I'm trying to setup. I'm having trouble getting my lights to ramp up at the proper time.


DYI led lights. 6 banks of 10 lights using 6 mean well d drivers (adjusted to 800 mA). these are wired as three signal wires to each of the two wies the come from VS 1 and VS2 from the outlet box.

My apex clock seems to be set correctly and is showing the same time as my computer clock.

the profile is

control type ramp
ramp time 60
start intensity 10
end intensity 100

the outlet program is

Fallback OFF
Set sunrise
If Time 11:30 to 12:30 Then sunrise

When I go to the status screen, I can turn the light on and off by manual control.

The problem is when I go to auto, the lights start the ramp up evn if I set the "If" time two hours ahead of the current time.

Any thoughts?

Thanks so much!

The Set Sunrise is the problem. Change that to Set OFF. The ramp will then start at the designated time.

Thanks so much Russ!! That did it. Sometimes it's hard to see what's right in front of you! :-(
