The C-Bus Single Zone Thermostat is a wall-mounted thermostat with an easy to use interface. The applications for this product include Hotel Rooms and smaller residential C-Bus installations (eg apartments). From the user's perspective, the unit provides the following functionality:
- Allows the user to manually set the temperature for the air conditioning system
- Allows the user to select the mode of air conditioning. i.e. Heating, Cooling, Ventilation
- Provides a method of customising the operation of the unit.
The unit allows manual fan speed control (where the controlled HVAC plant allows for this). This can be
enabled or disabled using a configuration parameter during commissioning. The unit incorporates a 'Setback' or 'Economy Mode' feature which allows the unit to operate with a wider than normal temperature range around a Setpoint. This is usually used when the home or building is unoccupied. Setback allows energy saving, whilst maintaining a degree of comfort. The Setback feature is enabled or disabled via
a C-Bus Lighting Group Address. All thermostat control parameters are accessible via C-Bus, from the C-Bus Toolkit software. The unit responds to C-Bus HVAC application messages and broadcasts the
displayed temperature on C-Bus to enable other C-Bus devices to be able react to this information (eg, C-Bus Colour Touch Screen or Pascal Automation Controller).
