Product Name(s): EC-Scheduler
Product Description: The Easycontrols EC-Scheduler is a device dedicated to storing and managing the schedules for networks. The EC-Scheduler is configured using an LNS plug-in. By using a nework variable, the schedule can be bound to any of the other devices on the LON network.
Product Application(s): The EC-Scheduler is designed for building automation systems with devices that do not support scheduling. The EC-Scheduler can support up to 16 schedules.
