Analogue input interface – Specific parameters

'Sensor definition' field

Image125

Sensor Type
this parameter defines the type of sensor which is connected to the concerning analogue input. There are several different types of sensors which can be connected.

Temperature sensor.
Select this sensor if you have connected a TELETASK temperature sensor TDS12250 or TDS12251 to your analogue input.
By using a TDS12019/20/21/22/24/25/26 AURUS family touch panel, the built-in temperature sensor will be configured the same way as another temperature sensor.
Humidity sensor
Select this sensor if you have connected a TELETASK humidity sensor TDS12260 to your analogue input.
Light sensor (dark)
Select this sensor if you have connected a TELETASK light sensor TDS12270 to your analogue input, which is set (hardware setting) as a 'dark' light sensor. Refer to the data sheet of the TDS12270 for details about this setting.
Light sensor (normal)
Select this sensor if you have connected a TELETASK light sensor TDS12270 to your analogue input, which is set (hardware setting) as a 'normal' light sensor. Refer to the data sheet of the TDS12270 for details about this setting.
Light sensor (sun)
Select this sensor if you have connected a TELETASK light sensor TDS12270 to your analogue input, which is set (hardware setting) as a 'sun' light sensor. Refer to the data sheet of the TDS12270 for details about this setting.
Remark: the hardware settings of the light sensor are to be done by setting the appropriate jumpers like described in the TDS12270 data sheet.
DAIKIN, Airzone, Mitsubishi Electric sensor
These sensors are only available on the specific interface (see chapter Airco Software license).
General linear sensor
these sensors are only available on the TDS12310. With this every type of linear sensors can be read with a standard analogue output signal (0-10V, 4-20mA,…) This sensor gives an average value (=sudden changes are not directly noticed)
Wind sensor
These sensors are only available on the TDS12310. With this every type of linear sensor can be read by an analogue output signal (0-10V, 4-20mA,) this sensor reports advanced changes immediately! (f.e. by measuring blasts of wind)

Sensor Name' or 'Sensor zone
In this field you can enter the name of the sensor. This should be the temperature / light or humidity zone for this sensor.

Example: 'ground floor', 'bath room', 'bedroom Lucas', 'South sensor', 'Twilight East'. If it concerns a temperature sensor which controls only the temperature of the room where the sensor is installed, then the name is the room name. If the T sensor controls several rooms, than the name may be 'ground level' or 'sleeping area' or something similar. Keep the name short, because this name is to be displayed on the displays and touchscreens which have a limited number of characters available for the name of the sensor zone.

Compensation
This parameter is only available when you selected a temperature sensor in the sensor type field. The content of the compensation field defines an offset to the measured temperature value. The TELETASK system can work with compensation temperatures between -5°C and +5°C in steps of 0.5°C. This compensation is default set to -2°C for TDS12250 and 0°C for TDS12251 and is advised not to be changed.

The 'Properties' field

After selecting a 'sensor type', different fields appear in the 'properties' window. The possible parameters for this field are: The following parameters can be entered:

When a temperature sensor has been selected

Heat – Control method
this parameter defines what kind of heating control method is to be used. You have the following choices:
  • Standard relay control method: this is a traditional ON/OFF control. It means that the concerned Temperature sensor will control the heating system by means of one output relay of the TELETASK system. When the room has to be warmed up, the relay (contact) will close and when the target temperature is reached the relay contact is opened. This is to control a valve, a circulation pump or a fan or similar item.
    • 'On/off: select the relay which you want to use to control the connected heating system. For example the relay that switches the electrical valve of the heating zone 'ground floor'
  • Analogue control: this is when your heating system is to be controlled by a 0 to 10 V analogue output.
    • 'On/off: Select here the relay which is to be switched (when necessary).
    • 'Analogue Output (5°C difference=100% heat/cool): Select here the analogue (dimmer-) output which is to be used as the Analogue control output for this Temperature zone.
  • 4 speed (OR) control: To be used for multi speed (off/low/medium/high) fan motors. This option is about an OR system, so it means that only one of the controlled relays will be on at the same time.
    • 'Low speed (at -0.5°C): Select the relay which is to be activated (close the contact) for low speed of the evolved fan.
    • 'Medium speed (at -2.5°C): Select the relay which is to be activated for medium speed of the fan.
    • 'High speed (at -5°C): Select the relay which is to be activated for high speed setting of the fan.
  • 4 speed (AND) control: To be used for multi speed (off /low/medium/high) fan motors. Same as for the 4 speed 'OR' control, but the lower speed output relays will stay on if a higher speed setting is set.
    • 'Low speed (at -0.5°C): Select the relay which is to be on for low fan speed.
    • 'Medium speed (at -2.5°C): Select the relay which is to on together with the low speed relay, when medium fan speed is needed.
    • 'High speed (at -5°C): Select the relay which should be on together with the low and medium speed relay, when high fan speed is needed.
  • Local Mood control: only for special applications.
    • 'On/off: Select the local mood which is to be switched on/off when temperature control is done.
  • Flag control: only for special applications
    • 'On/off: Select the flag which is to be controlled when temperature control is done.
  • Fan coil unit: select this type of control method to use a fan coil unit for your heating/cooling system.

TDSTempSensor
More information about the control of a heating system can be found in the thematical applications chapter in the heading 'how to integrate a heating/cooling system' further in this document and at the chapter about the 'extra menu' in this handbook.

Cool – control method
this parameter defines which type of cooling control is to be used. At the selection of the control method, there are some extra parameters available. You have the choice out of the same systems as for the heating control.
Max temperature
by default the maxium temperature for the presets and manual overrides is 30 degrees. But this can be increased or decreased by setting the specific desired maximum temperature. Setting range is between 20 and 40 degrees.
Day Temperature
This parameter is the threshold value of the sensor as set by the 'Day' preset temperature. This parameter can be set from 5°C to 30°C in steps of 0.5°C. By default, the 'day temperature is set by the system to 20°C.

The 'Day Temperature' is used by the TELETASK home automation system as a threshold for the 'heat' system. The 'Day' temperature for the cooling algorithm is x °C higher than the 'day' temperature parameter. The difference is defined by the 'Delta Heat/Cool' parameter. In PROSOFT this 'day' temperature for the 'cool' system is displayed in grey beside of the set 'Day' temperature which is shown at the left of 'Heat'.
The 'Delta Heat/Cool' is changeable in the 'Extra' - 'Options' menu under the 'sensor' tab.

Stand-by Temperature' (economic energy saving preset)
the 'Stand-by' temperature is derived from the 'Day' temperature. Therefore the 'stand-by' parameter is not the effective temperature but contains the difference to the 'day' temperature. The 'stand-by' parameter can be set from 0.5°C to 5°C in steps of 0.5°C. Default the 'stand-by' parameter is set to 5°C.
The 'Day/Stand-by Temperature' is used by your system as a threshold for the 'heat' system. The 'Day/Stand-by' temperature for the 'cool' system is a changeable number of °C ('Delta Heat/Cool') plus the stand-by temperature parameter higher. (For Stand-by this is the Day preset plus the stand-by temperature plus the 'Delta hot/cool'). This 'Day/Stand-by' temperature of the 'cool' system is in PROSOFT displayed in grey beside to the 'stand-by' preset before 'heat'. The 'delta heat/cool' parameter is changeable in the 'extra' 'options' menu, under the 'sensors' tab.
Night Temperature
this parameter defines the threshold value of the sensors as set in the 'night temperature' parameter. This parameter can be set from 5°C to 30°C in steps of 0.5 degrees Celsius. By default the 'night temperature' is set to 5°C.
The 'Night Temperature' is used by the TELETASK system as a direct threshold for the 'heat' system. In the 'cooling' system, there is an individual 'Night' value available. This value can be set-up between 20 and 30°C but can never be less than the set-up Night temperature for heating plus Delta Heat/Cool.
Cooling at night: Unlike the day/standby cool presets which are related to day/standby heat presets via the “Delta Heat/Cool”, the “Cooling at night” preset can be modified for each sensor zone individually without any correlation to another preset.
With this new preset you can for example keep the bedrooms, but not the other rooms, cool at the night. A good compromise between comfort and energy saving.

When selecting a humidity sensor:

Humidity sensor
this parameter defines the function which is to be used at the moment that the humidity sensor function has to be executed. Depending on the integrated function, there will be more or less parameters to be set. Refer to the explanation of the specific functions which can be used here in the 'functions' chapter of this handbook. These are: 'Switch', 'Dim', 'Local Mood' and 'Flags' + 'process function'. These functions are activated, whenever there is measured a value that is lower than the set-up value (air is too dry!) For 'Moistening' you have to reverse it by hardware.
Preset 1 (=day)
this parameter defines the 'day' threshold preset which is to be used to control the related function. This parameter can be set from 0% humidity to 100% humidity in steps of 1%. By default this preset is set to 0%. The function will be active as soon as the actual value is below the preset value (Low Action).
Preset 2 (=night)
this parameter defines the 'night' threshold preset which is to be used to control the related function. This parameter can be set from 0% humidity to 100% humidity in steps of 1%. By default this preset is set to 0%. The function will be active as soon as the actual value is below the preset value (Low Action).

When selecting a light sensor ('dark', 'regulating' or 'sun' sensor is set):

Image129

Light
this parameter defines the function which is to be executed on the moment that the sensor function is activated. Depending on the function which has been chosen, there are more or less parameters to be set. Refer to the description of the specific functions in the 'functions' chapter. You can choose here between the functions 'Switch', 'Dim', 'Local Mood' and 'Flags'.
Preset 1 (=day)
this parameter defines the threshold for the 'day' preset. This parameter can be set from 0 to 944060 Lux, according to a non-linear scale. By default this sensor is set to 0 Lux.
Preset 2 (=night)
this parameter defines the threshold for the 'night' preset. This parameter can be set from 0 to 944060 Lux, according to a non-linear scale. By default this sensor is set to 0 Lux.

When selecting a non-TELETASK humidity sensor (DAIKIN, AIRZONE, Mitsubishi Electric):

Properties
here is made a link between the TELETASK addresses and the addresses of the concerned system. See the manual of the concerning TELETASK interface/licence for more information. Here also the set-up 'Day/Night/Stand-by' presets are similar to the TELETASK temperature sensor.

When selecting a general linear sensor/Wind sensor:

Image131

  • Settings: here you chose the type of signal, the unity which has to be used, the precision, and the minimum and maximum values depending on the Properties of the sensor.
  • Low action: here you can, just like for other sensors, couple a function which will be executed when the measured value is too low.
  • 'Preset 1 (=day): this parameter defines the 'day' preset threshold value.
  • 'Preset 2 (=night): this parameter defines the 'night' preset threshold value.

In practice

  • Click 'Edit' in the PROSOFT menu bar.
  • Click 'Inputs and other'.
  • Select the desired analogue input interface. The selected 'I' interface turns blue.
  • Click the 'Edit' button. The 'Define Interface Function' window appears on the screen.
  • Select the desired input on the picture of the selected analogue input interface.
  • Select the desired sensor and set the different parameters depending on the needs of your project.
  • Click 'OK' until you are back in the main PROSOFT screen. The analogue input is defined. Don't forget to save your work regularly. TELETASK recommends having an incremental counter in the file name you use. This way you can easily go back to an older version if you think you have made an error in one of your last saved versions.
