Wireless control of water-based underfloor heating

Alternative applications

Check special floor systems both electric and water based underfloor heating. It combines the entire heating system and enables its wireless control from a central operating unit.


  • floor thermostats can be collected in a parapet duct in the immediate vicinity of the heating circuit valve or alternatively in the individual rooms. * It should be connected to the actuator above the check valve.
  • FTs that act as relays for the actuator should be not near floors or placed under pipes to prevent damage from leaking water system.
  • it is important, that the flow of the individual heating circuits is ensured, otherwise the water-based heating system would not work effectively or not at all.
  • The installation should be done by a certified electrician be performed.

* Note: The installation of the heating circuit distributor in a metal cabinet is not possible as this will affect the transmission of the radio signals.

Setup for water-based underfloor heating

For the adaptive control to work optimally, the setting of the desired floor temperature can not be changed constantly. This also applies to the automatic floor temperature and weather-compensated controller.

To avoid teething problems The system can be operated without the adaptive control for individual rooms. In cases where the flow temperature is insufficient or unstable, the use of adaptive control should be avoided. This also applies to systems without hydraulic balancing.

If it is desirable to operate the heating system while the lowering temperature is being changed the adaptive control is deactivated become.

The flow temperature should be set to a constant value of z. B. 35° C can be adjusted. If the temperature setting is lower, it takes longer to heat up the floor. Please note the maximum temperature specification for wooden floors and the arrangement of the wireless system.

The Requirements for a radio connection between all floor thermostats and the central control unit should be given.

It does not open the valves when there is no need for heat such as. In summer. It is advisable, to vary the temperature during the summer, so the valves are open for a few minutes to maintain proper functioning.

Wireless control technology

High-tech control systems

Underfloor heating: heating

Digital display

With a High-tech control system for underfloor heating has started the future. The system is designed for customers who value functionality, quality and design.

The idea is to wirelessly interconnect the control of a heating system and from a central location. The centrally placed control unit controls the floor heating of the entire house. All rooms at the same time or individual rooms with individual heating programs can be controlled. The floor thermostat located in each room records the floor temperature via a floor sensor and switches the heating elements on or off via a relay. The detection of the room temperature is done with special sensors.

For an extension of the system individual components can be added at any time. There is no need to lay meter-long cables in the various rooms, which saves the installer a considerable amount of time during installation and saves the building owner costs. The intuitive installation program of the central unit safely guides you through the configuration setup.

Easy to use after easy installation

A self-explanatory system that invites you to use - that's what every customer wants. Plain text display and symbols as well as the reduction of the control buttons to the essentials guarantee an absolutely simple operability with overview over all functions. Integrated help functions are available to the user at every screen level and guide them to the destination in case of problems. For example, the floor of the nursery, which is kept warm for playing children, while in the bedroom more moderate temperatures prevail.

A heating system for the future

A good heating system meets both the needs of the installer and the user. Because of his Timer, antifreeze and absence function it is very cost efficient in energy consumption. In addition, the entire system falls after a short time in a kind of "sleep state" and thus contributes in addition to energy savings.

The new, highly developed adhesive layer simplifies the installation of our thin-bed heating mats. Embedded in a top coating such as leveling compound or flexible adhesive ensures the only 2.3 mm thin heating mat for a comfortable room climate as well as increased comfort.

A new warm floor over the old and problem solution when renovating: thin-bed heating mat

Due to the special, thin construction of the thin-bed heating mat, it is possible to achieve a pleasantly warm floor without much effort. This is especially important in the renovation, since here usually only small construction heights are possible.

The self-adhesive thin-bed heating mat can be easily laid on existing, old tiles, screed or chipboard and adheres without any further fixings. If you have missed the laying of the mats, they can easily be removed from the ground and the position corrected. Subsequently will a thin layer of leveling compound or leveling compound applied and embedded the heating mat. As possible Oberbeläge offer z. As ceramic or natural stone, carpet and laminate. Ceramics or natural stone are particularly suitable as a top covering, but carpet and laminate coverings are also possible.

Mostly installed as additional heating in bathrooms and showers but also in the living area, the floor is pleasantly tempered and you get through the radiant heat a comfortable, healthy room climate. Due to the low coverage of the heating mat, the heating reacts very fast, the energy is used optimally.

The thin-bed heating mat finds predominantly in the renovation of bathrooms, kitchens, in the attic, etc. but also in the new building more and more application and offers, especially in the transitional period, an economic temperature of the rooms.

The regulation of the underfloor heating takes place with the latest technology, a "thinking" thermostat. This intelligent product solution "learns" how the room behaves, how fast the temperature rises or falls and takes this into account in its control behavior. Temperature control of individual rooms via a personal computer is the latest innovation.

Via an interface on the PC and the corresponding software can be communicated with the thermostats. Settings of temperatures or switching times, read out data and much more is possible with a click of the mouse. Heating systems offer the highest level of comfort and economy combined with the simplest operation. Simply heat intelligently.

Storage heating and direct heating

The floor direct heating offers the highest possible comfort and is a durable and maintenance-free heating solution. The floor storage heater is the cheapest heating solution, as it optimally exploits cheap electricity tariffs.

Electric floor heaters are a cheap, comfortable and future-proof alternative to the known conventional heating systems and have proven themselves in practice well. The flawless function of several million m² of installed space in the Federal Republic of Germany and Austria are the best proof of this.

Intelligent and comfortable heaters for warm feet and a healthy indoor climate

Add to that the typical advantages of a low-temperature surface heating. Due to the uniform heat treatment over the floor surface, the temperature profile of a floor heating of the "ideal heating" comes closest. An even room climate causes the actual temperature to be subjectively warmed by 1 to 2 ºC. This allows a corresponding lowering of the room temperature without sacrificing comfort and thus an energy saving of up to 15%.

Also the positive health aspects Underfloor heating should not be underestimated. Physicians recommend a room climate in which the person feels comfortable and his health is not endangered. By lowering the room temperature increases the relative humidity, which counteracts excessive drying of the respiratory tract.

Conventional radiators are relative to room temperature with relatively high temperatures operated, with the result that there is always to Staubaufwirbelungen that irritate the respiratory tract additionally. Such health disadvantages are not to be feared in a floor heating. The free architectural design of the building is another plus, since no disturbing radiators, pipes, niches, etc. affect the interior design. The field of application of electric underfloor heating systems extends from housing construction to commercial areas to public buildings.
