Basic Programming

After adding the block, a time function can be selected in its properties.
When setting a specific time, it is entered in the format hh:mm:ss.
The pulse is executed daily, also when time functions such as sunrise are selected.

Time functions, describing an interval other than daily (e.g. Minute pulse), provide the pulse at the interval of their name.

If the option one-time pulse is selected, then a date must also be set. The pulse will then be executed only once on the set date.
This option is not available for all time functions.

In the following example, the function block is used to send a daily pulse to the Automatic Shading block to open the blinds in the morning:
