Scheduling Display Dimming
Dimming is used when reducing the
brightness of a display at a certain time
using a schedule. If the display has a
photocell, Daktronics recommends using the
photocell instead of the scheduled dimming
option. Refer to Figure 37 while reading the
following sections.
Note: When choosing the Dimming option
in the schedule, be aware that the
Scheduled option must be selected in the
Display application.
To check this, open the Display window:
1. In the Venus 7000 Shell, click the Display button. Go to Control, then to Dimming. Be
sure that Scheduled is selected (for remote displays, Dimming only appears when
connected to the display).
2. To schedule the sign to dim:
a. Click the Add button on the toolbar to add a new event.
b. Click the drop-down arrow to the right of Type. Select Dim.
c. Use the spinners under Start Time to schedule the sign to dim everyday at 9:00
p.m. Set the Stop Time to 11:59 p.m. Set the First Date to today’s date and the Last
Date to December 31 of the current year. Note: The Stop Time can be set to
anytime later in the day than the Start Time because the sign will continually be
on dim until the schedule tells the display to brighten.
Scheduling Display Brightening
Use Bright when brightening the lamps on a display using a schedule. If the display has a
photocell, Daktronics recommends using the photocell instead of the Scheduled Bright option.
Note: When choosing the Bright option, be aware that the Scheduled option must be selected
in Display mode. To check this, open the Display window in the Venus 7000 Shell. Go to
Control > Dimming and ensure Scheduled is selected. (For remote displays, Dimming only
appears when connected to the display.)
To schedule the sign to brighten:
1. Click the Add button to add a new event.
2. Click the drop-down arrow to the right of Type. Select Bright.
3. Use the spinners under Start Time and schedule the sign to go to bright everyday at
7:00 a.m. Set the Stop Time to 8:59 p.m. Set the First Date to today’s date and the Last
Date to December 31 of the current year.
