An MR-T-s module is used to regulate the temperature in rooms, it allows one to control multiple heating zones (from 1 to 32) and it makes it possible to create schedules and automate the heating system.
For configuration purposes, please use the Ampio Smart Home configurator application.
On the list of modules, select the M-RT-s module and open Device parameters.
In the Basic tab, you can, for example, download the current time from a computer to the module, or enter the geographical location of an object, which helps in setting the right time for sunrise and sunset. There is also an option to set the controller’s behaviour in case the temperature sensor breaks, as well as an option to sync time with another module.
In the Temperature controller tab, you will find, for example, all available zones, which can be given names, you can select the regulator type for a specific zone, and select a module from the CAN network, from which the current temperature will be obtained. You will need to select the number of temperature sensor for that module next. On the basis of the obtained data, the controller regulates heating in a given zone. You will then also set the day and night temperatures. Histeresis, which manages the speed of activation/de-activation can also be modified. On top of that, it can also be manually determined, what hours constitute day, and which night.
Schedule settings can be copied to other zones, or each zone can be set up individually.
The Flags tab provides the capability of managing flags, just as it is the case with every other module of the Ampio system.
The M-RT-s module enables the function of creating conditions in the configurator that are dependent on time or on the heating zone controls.
Such conditions can, for example, be activated at night, in a given month, or at a certain hour.
The image below shows how a condition is created from an active zone, checking whether heating for the zone is active, or not.
Another capability of creating such conditions is comparing temperatures (the set temperature, or the measured temperature) to assumed values.
With the use of conditions, you can also trigger some functions for the M-RT-s' driver, e.g. an alteration of the value set for the next rescheduling.
Other functions include, among others, changing the heating/cooling state, or setting a Departure mode.
In order to control heating in the M-RT-s module via the Ampio UNI mobile app, you have to add an appropriate object to the group.
Create a new object in the ASH Manager and assign it to the M-RT-s device. In the Number column you can also select the number of the zone that you wish to control.
Open the device’s Settings, set the object type to Regulator and, optionally, change the Advanced settings (min. and max. temperature, as well as the regulation step).
Save the object and add it to the correct group in the Grouping tab in order to display it in the application.
At the end, save the configuration on the server, e.g. using the Ctrl+s shortcut.
From this moment on, controlling zones will also be possible via the mobile application. You will have the option to change modes in the app. First, set the temperature and then choose the mode:
A detailed description of different modes can be found in the following document: Controlling the temperature in Ampio UNI.
After clicking on the settings icon (gear icon), you can also set up schedules manually in the app. Clicking on the 3 dots, on the other hand, will let you add favourites, display charts, or change between heating/cooling.
