A plug load controller (PLC) profile is a set of configuration values that determine the settings of the parameters of a PLC device. The most common reason to modify the profile attributes is to have a better match with the environment of the organization. During installation, the start times for the periods of a day, and the weekdays are selected to match the occupancy patterns of the organization. The configuration values are used by the PLC to control power to the controlled outlet. The configuration is similar to that for sensors, in that different behaviors can be specified for different periods of the day, and expected occupancy (for workdays) and expected vacancy (for weekend days). It also supports overrides for demand-response and scheduled vacancies (holidays).
To ease the application of PLC profiles, Manage ships with a default template. Additional templates can be created based on this template. Template instances can be created based on needed behavior to match the needs of the users within the organization.
This article describes how to create or edit a PLC Profile instance. Only system and facility administrators can create profile templates and instances. All other users may edit the values in the profile instances. Profile templates and instances are predefined values that determine the light level settings of a fixture; these instance values can be modified as per your requirement.
To modify profile instance values:
Step 1: Click on Profile Templates in the left panel to display the list of available profile instances.
Step 2: Select the required profile instance.
Step 3: Click the Settings tab.
To create a new PLC Profile, click the Create button under the Settings tab. Enter the Plug load Profile Name and edit the attributes as per your requirements. Click Save.
To edit PLC Profile, select the profile under the Settings tab and click Edit. Change one or more values as per your need. For a description of the profile attributes, refer to the article Profile Basic Attributes. Click the Update button to apply the changes.
