[ENG] 10.3. [DKSF 52/202.10 IU] Configuring Thermo(Hygro)Stat

To configure a thermo(hygro)stat, there is a need to go to the page «LOGIC» of a device web interface:

Configuring a thermostat in a NetPing device

In the section «Thermo(Hygro)Stat» the next parameters of a thermostat are configured.

Thermo(hygro)stat is used to maintain a constant temperature or a relative humidity of the air. Besides a programmed thermo(hygro)stat, there is a need to set a minimum of two rules: one for switching on, for example, a heater or a cooler, and another one for switching them off. It is possible to configure no more than two channels of a thermo(hygro)stat – «TSTAT 1», «TSTAT 2». A corresponding thermo(hygro)stat is chosen a data source («input») in logic rules.

Sensor  is a number of a temperature or humidity sensor, with which a thermo(hygro)stat works. It is possible to plug up to eight temperature sensors and one humidity sensor to a device. On default: 1

Current value, deg.C or % rel.hum.  is a reading of a temperature or humidity sensor in the current moment of time.

Threshold, deg.C or % rel.hum.  is a value of a temperature or a relative humidity that is supported by a thermo(hygro)stat (in whole degrees of Celsius, a value can be negative). On default: 20

Hysteresis, 1..8 deg.С or % rel.hum. – a hysteresis sets a «dead zone» near a specified temperature or a relative humidity, within which a thermo(hygro)stat does not register fluctuations. This feature allows avoiding frequent random switching, for example, of a heater (cooler) caused by natural spontaneous fluctuations of a temperature or a relative humidity. If a current status of a thermo(hygro)stat is «above (threshold M)», then a threshold for switching a status is a specified temperature or a relative humidity, decreased on a hysteresis value. And vice versa, if a current status is «below (threshold M)», then a threshold for switching is a specified temperature or relative humidity, increased on a hysteresis value. As soon as a temperature or a relative humidity reaches the threshold (taking a hysteresis into account) when rising or falling and thus leaves the threshold of a «corridor», a status of a thermo(hygro)stat is changed to the opposite one. On default: 2

Graph hysteresis in NetPing devices.

Status  is a status of channels of a thermo(hygro)stat «TSTAT 1», «TSTAT 2». It can have the next values: «sensor failed», «above (threshold M)», «below (threshold M)».

After setting the values, there is a need to click the button «Apply changes».

After configuring a thermo(hygro)stat, there is a need to configure a rule in the module «Logic». It is possible to learn how to do this from the section «[ENG] 10.2. [DKSF 52/202.10 IU] How to Use the Module «Logic»?».
