The TC 649 control box is the first device on the market that can send time switch or Astro programs and many other functions to previously defined groups of devices.


The highlights of the TC 649 control box at a glance:

  • Complete control: Central switching or transfer of updates, functions and time or Astro programs to consumers.
  • Maximum flexibility: Assign individual devices to any device group.
  • Secure operation: In the company LAN network
  • Predictive yearly functions: Flexibly program one-time or recurring events

TC 649 E control box

The TC 649 E control box can be used to send time switch or astro programs via LAN or VPN to a single device in the network and to make direct switchings.

Thanks to the integrated web server, the control box is very easy to install in the network.
The control box can be controlled from any computer in the network, or mobile via smartphone and tablet (limited to direct switching).

Function description for administration software

The administration software is the central element for the administration of all TC 649 devices connected to the LAN.

Transferring programs, location determination for astro functions, direct control and creation of project structures or reading off operating hours – everything is controlled from a single central location.

  • Central administration of all connected devices
  • Grouping options in superordinate or subordinate groups, by location or based on other criteria
  • Selection of individual and grouped device groups
    • Sending programs
    • Selection of location information for astro functions
      • With customisable offset for each individual device and channel
  • Direct control “auto; perm off, perm on”
  • Reading off operating hours
  • Setting a service interval
  • Device software updates can be installed centrally.

The OBELISK software can be used to create daily/weekly programs to run throughout the year or programs that are controlled astronomically.
