For an opti­mal reg­u­la­tion of the heat­ing tech­nol­o­gy an exten­sive sen­sor equip­ment is need­ed. To achieve the best pos­si­ble reg­u­la­tion qual­i­ty and ener­gy sav­ings, for the under­floor heat­ing 40 room and return tem­per­a­ture sen­sors are get­ting installed in sys­tems with space return con­trol in a com­mon sin­gle-fam­i­ly house. In addi­tion to that there are sen­sors with buffer mem­o­ry, lead­ing sen­sor, exter­nal sen­sor, etc.

The jam­ming of these tem­per­a­ture sen­sors was a small chal­lenge and was hard­ly achiev­able using com­mer­cial­ly avail­able clamps.

The new sen­sor dis­trib­u­tor offers help. Just con­nect each sen­sor to one of the 15 ter­mi­nal blocks. The con­nec­tion to the gate­way is then estab­lished once using 7 wires (+, — and 5 data lines). For sys­tems with more than 15 sen­sor 2–3 sen­sors can be jammed into a sin­gle clamp if nec­es­sary, ensur­ing that the amount of con­nectible sen­sors will be enough in any case.

Every sin­gle clamp is equipped with a jumper that splits the sen­sor, depend­ing on its posi­tion, into 1–5 sen­sor lines. The com­mis­sion­ing of sys­tems with many sen­sor thus becomes a lot easier.

Details relat­ed to the con­nec­tion of the sen­sor dis­trib­u­tor can be fund in the tech­ni­cal documentation:

The sen­sor dis­trib­u­tor is from now on avail­able in the Store for €49,- and rec­om­mend­ed for sys­tems with 8 or more sensors.
