Needs-based addi­tion­al gates connection

In Con­trome Heat­ing-Man­ag­er archi­tec­ture the sen­sors con­nect the gates with one or more of our Con­trome Gate­ways. While con­nect­ing the out­puts, the actu­a­tors, for instance, in the heat­ing man­i­fold can open and close them­selves. It should be also clar­i­fied that the posi­tion of gates is not nec­es­sar­i­ly depen­dent on the posi­tion of sen­sors. We imple­ment our new pump log­ic for this.

Deal­ing with a heat­ing sys­tem, there is always a consumer/user (a floor heat­ing sys­tem, a radi­a­tor, etc.) and a pro­duc­er (a boil­er, a heat­pump). As a rule, the con­sumer is aware of the pro­duc­er indi­rect­ly. That is why, for instance, a boil­er often starts when every radi­a­tor is switched off. Using our pump log­ic, we tack­le this infor­ma­tion­al problem.

The pump log­ic con­nects one or more gates with regard to the posi­tion of oth­er par­tic­u­lar gates. Con­verse­ly, such a gate can be the pump log­ic itself. If installing cen­tral heat­pumps and cir­cu­la­tion pumps for sep­a­rate storeys, one can con­nect the cir­cu­la­tion pumps in such a way, that no linked heat cir­cuits remain open. As soon as all the cir­cu­la­tion pumps are again turned off, we can turn off the heat pumps by ourselves.

How does it work?

Easy as that: first­ly you choose vital gates and then the gates which are depen­dent on the afore­men­tioned ones that are to be con­nect­ed. There is only one restric­tion: the pump log­ic can­not abstain itself, even indi­rect­ly by means of the next pump logic.
