Introduction

AUTO Mode contains four trigger types: high temperature, low temperature, high humidity, and low humidity. Press the mode button to view each trigger type, and then use the up and down buttons to adjust its trigger point. While in AUTO Mode, any of the four triggers can simultaneously activate even if you are not viewing that specific trigger. Turn off any triggers not being used by pressing the up and down buttons together to prevent them from interfering with your active triggers. Most applications will only require one trigger type. AUTO Mode triggers may also be affected by your max/min level, transition, and buffer settings. 

 

AUTO Mode (High Temperature Trigger)

The High Temperature Trigger will activate your device when the temperature meets or exceeds your set figure. This is typically used with devices like air conditioners and cooling fans that can help lower the temperature when it gets too hot. For example, if you set a high temperature trigger of 90°F, then your device will activate when the temperature rises to 90°F or higher, turning off when the temperature falls below 90°F.

AUTO Mode (Low Temperature Trigger)

The Low Temperature Trigger will activate your device when the temperature meets or falls below your set figure. This is typically used with devices like heaters and seedling mats that can help raise the temperature when it gets too cold. For example, if you set a low temperature trigger of 40°F, then your device will activate when the temperature falls to 40°F or lower, turning off when the temperature rises above 40°F.

AUTO Mode (High Humidity Trigger)

The High Humidity Trigger will activate your device when the relative humidity meets or exceeds your set figure. This is typically used with devices like dehumidifiers that can help lower the humidity when it gets too humid. For example, if you set a high humidity trigger of 70%, then your device will activate when the humidity rises to 70% or higher, turning off when the humidity falls below 70%.

AUTO Mode (Low Humidity Trigger)

The Low Humidity Trigger will activate your device when the relative humidity meets or falls below your set figure. This is typically used with devices like humidifiers that can help raise the humidity when it gets too dry. For example, if you set a low humidity trigger of 50%, then your device will activate when the humidity falls to 50% or lower, turning off when the humidity rises above 50%.

Settings that Affect Your Programming

  • Maximum and Minimum Level Settings - all programming modes can be limited by these settings. When the device is triggered to be off, it will run at the minimum level you had set. When the device is triggered to be on, it will run at up to the maximum level you had set. The max and min setting is the level you had set in ON and OFF mode, respectively.
  • Transition Settings - programs the device to dynamically adjust its levels based on the gap between the temperature and humidity and your target.
  • Buffer Settings - applies to outlet devices, which can only be turned on or off, and adds a band to your temperature and humidity triggers to prevent your device from turning off too quickly.
