World-first: Demand-driven boiler control system
Until now, boiler control systems have predominantly been controlled based on the temperature outside. The new Fröling Extension makes it possible for an installation using Loxone to benefit from a demand-driven boiler control system that works based on the demand from individual rooms. Depending on the installation, this can help to reduce both energy usage and heating costs.
An example of how the demand-driven boiler control system works:
Boiler: More heating required
It’s an overcast Sunday morning. The cloud cover means that the house doesn’t have any solar energy heating the house through the windows.
In the bathroom, the required temperature matches the actual temperature. In the living room, it is 2 degrees cooler than the required temperature and the bedroom is warmer than the required temperature.
There is a demand for heating so that the living room can be warmed up, meaning that a high flow temperature is required. The boiler needs to get fired up!
Boiler: No heating required
The afternoon sun is shining. The solar energy is sufficient to keep the rooms warm. This means that no heating is required. The flow temperature is low
The boiler stays off.
Boiler: Low level heating required
In the evening, the required temperature in the bathroom is higher than during the day, the bedroom has cooled down to a comfortable 19°C. The living room is at comfort temperature. This calls for a low level of heating to gently increase the flow temperature.
Control of heating circuits, boilers and buffers
The Fröling Extension can be put to use both in homes and in larger buildings. Only one Fröling Extension is needed to manage and control up to 18 heating circuits, 8 boilers and 4 buffers.
Just one glance at the Loxone App is enough to keep informed about the readings from and status of boilers, buffers and/or heating circuits. Anytime and anywhere, your customers can see this information at a glance without the need for any manual control or interventation.
Notification of faulty. Respond quickly.
By integrating a Fröling heating system in a Loxone installation, your customer can be informed if there is a fault or if a threshold value has been reached, either via an email, a phone call, or even a flashing light in a particular room – you can even use the new Music Server to provide a spoken notification using Text-to-Speech. This means your customer will be able to respond quicker.
Easy integration & configuration
The new Fröling Extension means that our Loxone Partners will be able to intuitively integrate the Fröling heating system into a building being automated with Loxone. Loxone Config has a dedicated heating demand and temperature control Function Blocks, streamlining the configuration of your intelligent boiler control system with zoned heating.
The Loxone App means that it is easy to monitor your heating remotely – whether you are on holiday or just upstairs! A convenient solution to give you peace of mind.
