The Sensor Functions

Description

The sensor functions activate (sensor) threshold values which your TELETASK domotics system will use to execute certain actions. When the measurements of the TELETASK temperature, humidity or light sensor exceed (below or beyond) these values, a suitable action is taken.

Parameters

The function itself

Image175

Sensor zone
this parameter defines the sensor or sensor zone, for which the different sensor functions have to be represented. In this field you can only select the sensors for which a control method was specified.
Sensor functions
select the sensor function. Depending on the type of sensor different options can be selected here.
Temperature sensor
when a temperature sensor (TDS12250, TDS12251, AURUS sensor, AIRZONE, Daikin, Mitsubishi electric, MODBUS) is selected, the following sensor functions can be available depending on the type and configuration of the sensor. See table below.
  • On/Off: this function toggles the temperature measurement for the corresponding zone between on/off. When off, the zone is inactive which means that no heat or cool action will take place.
  • Preset: Day: this function selects the 'Day' preset as active threshold value.
  • Preset: Night: this function selects the 'Night' preset as active threshold value.
  • Preset: Standby: this function selects the 'Standby' preset as active threshold value.
  • Preset: Frost protection: this function selects the 'Frost protection' as active threshold value.
  • Preset: Up: this function raises the valid threshold value with 1 step = 0.5°C.
  • Preset: Down: this function lowers the valid threshold value with 1 step = 0.5°C.
  • Preset: Toggle Day/Night: this function switches the threshold value between 'Day' (on) and 'Night' (off).
  • Preset: Toggle Day/Standby: this function switches the threshold value between 'Day' (on) and 'Standby' (off).
  • Preset: Toggle Standby/Night: this function switches the threshold value 'Standby' (on) and 'Night' (off).
  • Set specific temperature: regardless of preset temperatures, you can specify a specific temperature. This is not recommended. Please use the preset temperature as much as possible. TELETASK advices to use Preset Day, Night and standby for normal operation and to only use this function in exceptional cases where the desired temperature is different from all preset temperatures.
  • Window open: Set frost protection: this function activates the 'Frost protection' as active threshold value, when a window is opened. When the window is closed then this function will activate the latest active preset 'Day', 'Night' or 'Standby'.
This function is developed specifically to be used with a window contact.
  • Mode: Heat/Cool (auto): This function activates the mode in which the integrated cool/heat system will cool or heat when needed. This is done automatically. It will set to cool when the room temperature becomes too high and heat when it gets too cold in the room. Take the Delta Heat / Cool setting into consideration specified in Extra  Options  Sensor tab in the PROSOFT main menu. This will prevent that the system will continuously switch between Heat and Cool.
For energy saving reasons the ‘Mode: Auto’ is disabled by default, you can enable this mode in the menu ‘Extra>Options’. In de sensor tab you can check the ‘Enable Auto modus’ setting.
  • Mode: Heat: This function activates the mode in which the integrated cool/heat system will only heat when needed.
  • Mode: Cool: This function activates the mode in which the integrated cool/heat system will only cool when needed.
  • Mode: Heat+: This function activates 'Heat+' mode as described by the Airzone heat/cool system.
  • Mode: Ventilation: This function activates the concerned temperature zone in the ventilation function.
  • Mode: Dry: This function activates the concerned temperature zone in the dry function if available.
Mode
Stop system: This function switches the complete Airzone system off. No action will be taken caused by a measurement of any sensor in a sensor zone.
  • Speed: Auto: when this speed is selected, the speed of the Heat/Cool system is automatically adjusted depending on the difference between the measured temperature and the target temperature.;
  • 'Speed: Slow: puts the speed of the Heat/Cool system at 'SLOW'.;
  • 'Speed: Medium: puts the speed of the Heat/Cool system at 'MEDIUM'.;
  • ‘Speed: Fast: puts the speed of the Heat/Cool system at 'FAST';
  • 'Direction X: puts the air valve of the airco system towards a certain direction or 'SWING'.;

Other sensor
when a humidity, light, pulse or general analogue sensor is selected, the following sensor functions are available:
  • Preset: Off: the sensor value is switched off. The connected function is not switched; manual operation of this function is possible.
  • Preset: Day: this function selects the 'Day' preset as active threshold value.
  • Preset: Night: this function selects the 'Night' preset as active threshold value.
  • Preset: Up: this function raises the valid threshold value with 1 step = 1% (humidity), nonlinear Lux value (light), dependant on the sensor specific settings for pulse and general analogue sensors.
  • Preset: Down: this function lower the valid threshold value with 1 step = see ‘preset up’.
  • Preset: Toggle Day/Night: this function switches the threshold value between the 'Day' value (on) and the 'Night' value (off).
  • Preset: Toggle Day/Off: This function switches the threshold value between the 'Day' value (on) and no threshold value (off).
The sensor functions for the selected sensors are only available when all parameters with the analogue interface have been defined correctly.

When called from another function

All functions (i.e. Local Mood)
The sensor functions are selectable in other functions as i.e. a local mood. The function of the sensor functions stays as described above.
The 'Condition' function
Not all the sensor functions described above are available in the ‘condition’ function, the available functions are:

  • On/Off' (as above)
  • Preset: Day', 'Preset: Standby' ,'Preset: Night', 'Preset: Frost protection' (as above);
  • ‘Sensor levels: this function is only available in the Condition, it allows to compare the measured value of the sensor with a predefined value e.g ‘check if the value of a light sensor is greater than 10000 lux’ (see the ‘condition function for more information.)
A condition that uses the ‘Sensor Level’ function will always be false if the level of the sensors is unkown (e.g. when the sensor is defect, the interface is not found on AUTOBUS, just after startup of the central unit,…)
