I can't program the Scheduler module with ION Setup

A client has an ION7330 and he wants to program the Scheduler Module with ION Setup since he does not have ION Enterprise or StruxureWare Power Monitoring Expert.

He says it is not possible.

I tested the Scheduler module with an ION7650 and encountered the same issue.

I used ION Setup 2.1, ION Setup 2.2 build 825 and ION Setup 3.0.14094.02 to test it.

Only with ION Setup 2.2 I could see some changes previously made with Designer of PME7.2.2. But I still could not make the necessary changes in ION Setup. In Designer everything works fine.)

Re: I can't program the Scheduler module with ION Setup

At present ION Setup doesn't properly support the scheduler module as its a fairly complex feature which would require a great deal of development time to redevelop the functionality done using ION Designer.  The majority of the use for the Scheduler module was to either support Time of Use (which is now supported by the Time of Use module) or calendar based actions (like trigger new logs of the 5th of every month) which could be accomplished using a developed ION framework.  The lack of long term use as the schedule only lasts two years also poses programming issues for the lack of perpetual dates which is why there has been very little effort to add this functionality to ION Setup and improvements to the Scheduler module itself.

For now, the only application that can properly program the Scheduler is ION Designer itself (ION Setup does have a TOU Wizard which tries to adapt the scheduler specifically for that application but it doesn't allow you to program all the specific dates/time/outputs like Designer does).

Re: I can't program the Scheduler module with ION Setup

Hi Robert,

Thank you for the answer.

I will suggest the Time of Use module to the client.

Is it possible to remove the module from ION Setup?

The client and I lost time with it because the module is in ION Setup.

It even has a lot of buttons for changing all the parameters, but almost none of them work.
