Heat regulation and hygrometric control
EQUICALOR® is a wireless system for the smart management of radiator heating plants. A typical EQUICALOR® system consists of as many actuators as the radiators plus a single chronothermostat, which can be programmed on daily and weekly basis over three temperature levels. An independent program can be set for each zone and up to 8 zones (up to 28 actuators) can be managed by a single chronothermostat. The actuator is mounted on the valve (which must be suitable to thermostatic control) exactly as a thermostatic head. The actuator is then associated to one of the zones created on the chronothermostat. Both the chronothermostat and the actuator feature an onboard temperature sensor, and this allows the chronothermostat to control the actuator's opening/closure based on the room demand. The communication between chronothermostat and actuators is wireless and bidirectional. The adjustment performed by the actuator is modulating proportional and it is based on a patented algorithm making it possible to use a single chronothermostat to manage all the zones. Besides, the set temperature can be locally modified for the individual actuator: in particular, the value set on the chronothermostat can be increased or decreased by up to 3 °C. Both chronothermostat and actuator are powered by 3 AA batteries, whose life has been improved to three years thanks to a specific work on consumption optimisation.
