AURUS-TFT (TDS12064)

Image112

In PROSOFT there are different parameters which can be set to the specific needs of your project and to the specifications of the user.

Customize this screen:

Image113

Favorites tab
When you click this button, the “Define AURUS-TFT” window appears. In this screen, you will find a simplified AURUS-TFT screen where you can edit the 8 AURUS-TFT favourites buttons to your personal needs. You can modify the names and change the icons.

Image114

Rooms & Items tab
In this window you can change the different control menus of the AURUS-TFT.

Sorting the menu items
you can change the order of appearance of the items in the menus. If you want for example to display the ‘kitchen’ on top of the rooms list, select the ‘kitchen’ button and drag the room to the desired place.

You can do the same sorting for the functions when you click the functions. Place the most often used functions on top of the list and the seldom used functions at the bottom.

Visualisation
you can hide a room or function by removing the ‘V’ mark next to it.
!!! Be sure that all to be hidden functions are effectively hidden, because in some cases this can generate unwanted results by fault use of the buttons on the AURUS-TFT screen. An example of a function which is to be hidden is a relay output which controls a heating valve or circulation pump or a fan of a heating or cooling system. These kinds of relays are to be controlled by the intelligence of the TELETASK system and are not to be controlled directly by the user.
A function will be automatically shown on the AURUS-TFT screen when the parameters ‘room’, ‘icon’ and ‘name’ of the concerned function are entered.
User code protection
A function can be user code protected. This means that the function only can be controlled after clicking that function with your finger on the AURUS-TFT touchscreen and after entering the correct user code.

To protect a function, just check the “Passcode” mark.
The standard factory user code is “12345”. This user code can be changed any time in PROSOFT in the “Users & groups” configuration menu.

Read only
This parameter is unchecked by default, when this is checked the item will only show the status but cannot be controlled.

Settings

In this window you can change the different control menus of the AURUS-TFT.

Configuration
Select if the user is allowed to make changes to the sensor presets and clock actions.;
Not all clock actions can be edited on the AURUS-TFT. Only the clock actions for a thermostat and clock actions for which the option ‘‘Allow user to change this clock on Touchscreen” is checked can be edited (see TIMESOFT).
Screen saver type
The screensaver will be Default off. If desired, you can select the “Clock screen saver” to display the time when the AURUS-TFT is in standby mode. Regardless of the selected screensaver, the display will switch off after the selected time (see the “Display OFF after” setting).
  • Time format: Here you can switch 23:59 or AM-PM notation.
  • Date format: The same as with the time format, here you can choose your preference of the way the date displays on the Screensaver.
Camera captures
Add an email address (max. 5 for every AURUS-TFT) if you would like to receive an email with camera captures every time a screen capture is made. If black, the camera capture functionality will be unavailable.
All the above settings are to be set on each individual AURUS-TFT unit (in PROSOFT). When you have more than one AURUS-TFT panel in your project, every AURUS-TFT can be set in a different way. Example: In the master bedroom all functions in all rooms may be accessible. But in the guest room, only functions in the guest room and for example in the guest bathroom are shown on the screen.
The sensor and audio zones are only available in the ‘Edit screen’ window when they are connected with a room in the ‘list room’ window. One audio zone and up to five sensor zones can be connected to a room.

Energy management

With the AURUS-TFT you can visualize the energy generation, consumption and balance of your project in kW, kW/h or in the desired currency. Per installation you can have one overview screen.

If you visualize the values in kW, be aware that this will be the total of today (starting at midnight) or the total of the last 24h. This depends of the sensor ‘Timebase’ which you can configure in the TDS12117.


Example:

How to configure the Energy balance screen

  • Go to Extra > Options > Sensor tab
  • Click on ‘Energy settings’ under ‘Energy management and Charts’

Image117

Energy management window
In this window you can configure the energy management parameters.

Image118

Preview window
In the left corner you will see a preview of the energy balance screen on the AURUS-TFT with at left, the energy generation visualised as PV panels and at the right the house as consumer.;
  • Maximum production (kW): In order to have a correct scaling (balance) between the production and consumption, you will have to fill in an assumption of the possible maximum production (eg.: of you PV panels).;
  • Average Profit per kWh: Here you fill in the profit you will get when you put your generated electricity back to the electricity grid.;
  • Pulse counter sensor for energy production: In this column you can select which ‘kWh (pulse) sensor’ will act as the ‘Energy production’ counter. You can select multiple. ;
To see something in this column you will have to add a sensor which is defined as a ‘kWh (pulse)’ ‘Sensor Type’ on one of the inputs of a Digital input interface TDS12117. See image below.
Be sure that all sensors have the same ‘Timebase’ (last 24h or Today) to prevent an incorrect balance.

Currency
Type here your desired currency (eg.: €, $, £,…). ;
The AURUS-TFT will display the currency as value/kWh.
Maximum consumption (kW)
In order to have a correct scaling (balance) between the production and consumption, you have to fill in an assumption of the possible maximum energy consumption.;
  • Average cost per kWh: Here you fill in the price you have to pay per kWh when you buy it from your energy supplier.;
  • Pulse counter sensor for energy consumption: In this column you can select which ‘kWh (pulse) sensor’ will act as the ‘Energy consumption’ counter. You can select multiple.;
To see something in this column you will have to add a sensor which is defined as a kWh (pulse) sensor type on one of the inputs of a Digital input interface TDS12117.

Chart visualisation

All types of sensors can be displayed on the AURUS-TFT as trend lines or block diagrams to visualize gas consumption, rainfall, energy production, temperature, wind velocity, light intensity, etc.

The AURUS-TFT can display sensor values per day, week, month, year and always with a comparison of last day, week, month, year, in the background. Depending of the type of sensor (analogue or digital) these will be visualized as a trend line with min/max lines in the ‘month’ and ‘year’ screens, or as block graphs with totals per hour, day, week or month.

Example:
Image120

Up to 100 sensors can be visualized per central unit.
The sensor data is collected and memorized in the DoIP central unit. So if the AURUS-TFT is replaced, the sensor values will still be available.
You can only visualize the current and last day in hours, the current and last week in days and, the current and last month in weeks and the current and last year in months. The AURUS-TFT cannot visualize for example the hours of a particular day two weeks ago. On the GUI+ (TDS15105) this is possible. Refer to the chapter of GUI+ for more details.

How to enable in PROSOFT:

  • Go to Extra > Options > Sensor tab
  • Click on ‘Energy settings’ under ‘Energy management and Charts’

Image121

  • Enable the sensors for which you want to have a chart available on the

AURUS-TFT.

Upgrading the AURUS-TFT software version:


To upgrade an AURUS-TFT, go to Extra > Diagnostics > Interfaces and look for the AURUS-TFT in the list. If a new version is available, an “Upgrade” button will be displayed in the “Version” table. In the ‘Upgrade interface’ window, the necessary components will be automatically be selected. Click the Upgrade button to start the upgrade process.

The upgrade process can take up to 45min. Other interfaces will function as normal but a small lag is possible.
When the upgrade process is started, it is not possible to cancel the action.
Once the upgrade is started, you may close PROSOFT. The upgrade process will continue.
To see if the upgrade process is still running or has been finished, let Diagnostics search the interfaces again to see the current status.
