Room temperature controller
Room temperature controllers are used for individual room temperature regulation in interior rooms and dispose of various measuring ranges and can be very different in terms of application (static heating surfaces or underfloor heating, air conditioning and ventilation functions, etc.) and functions for operation and comfort. This catalog provides eibabo room temperature controllers for different bus systems (KNX, radio, LCN) as well as conventional applications. The most common regulators in this catalog are KNX room temperature controllers. The selection is big. Many manufacturers use different designations, such as KNX continuous controllers, KNX object regulators, KNX room temperature controllers. Object regulators are room temperature controllers without direct adjustment options for the set point temperature at the device. Object regulators were developed, as the name implies, for use in objects, mostly public buildings or areas where direct adjustment is not desired. The values are parameterized in a fixed way directly via the ETS (software), but nominal values can be changed directly using KNX (KNX switches, KNX operating panels, KNX visualizations). However, KNX object regulators are often cheaper and suitable in the domestic sector for hallways, basements or storage rooms. KNX room temperature controllers are also offered in different types depending on the manufacturer. Many KNX room temperature controllers are already available with bus coupler or the bus coupler must be purchased separately. Often the KNX already includes KNX binary inputs, for example to integrate conventional switches in the room to switch on the light via KNX.These binary inputs, generally, correspond to the technical data of KNX push button interfaces and can therefore only be extended by up to 50cm. There are controllers with or without adjusting wheel for adjusting the temperature or adjustment via display and menu operation, everything is possible. However, customers should not only consider the outside of the controller but see what the KNX room temperature controller has to offer inside. Here, significant application development differences between the individual manufacturers become apparent. But these differences may be relevant to your project requirements in terms of control behavior, influence on regulation processes, operating modes and external switchover options or set point adjustment, status feedback, number of group addresses, behavior in case of power failure and more.There are also multi-channel KNX room temperature controllers for electric distribution installations, where temperature measurement is carried out by means of separate KNX sensors, for example, by KNX push buttons or movement detectors with integrated temperature sensor.
