KNX thermostat
« on: May 12, 2012, 11:59:29 pm »
Hi,

a simple question that I have not found an answer after years of trying ....
What is the correct parameter in the web admin for the standard thermostat using KNX / EIBD?

I read this on txt on svn:

Code: [Select]
Standard_Thermostat:
channel meaning:
write asked temperature | write mode | return asked temperature | return mode | return real temperature

it's correct?

and if yes

write asked temperature      ----------->  GA  2byte
write mode                        ----------->  GA  1 bit? 1 byte?
return asked temperature     ----------->  GA  2 byte
return mode                       ----------->  GA  1bit? 1 byte?
return real temperature        ----------->  GA   2 byte

Yes, but the mode ga is 1 bit (on heating, off cooling) or 1 byte (comfort, Night, etc)?

Perhaps I have not explained very well.
I know in what form should be written in the web admin GA (assuming that I must follow the syntax is shown on the txt file that I found).
My problem is that in the ETS do not know what matches "write mode", corresponds to an object type "heating / cooling" (1 bit), or object "mode" (1 byte), however in both cases, the thermostat does not switch properly between heating / cooling for me.

hi,

for me the Value "C" and "H" works. The GA is for the Konnex thermostat modes.

Sorry, what kind of thermostat do you use? I have a merten room controller. The object mode on your thermostat is at 1 bit or 1 byte?

yeah. for me it was also very hard to find the correct values (H/C). But maybe your GA is wrong? Do you have an android phone? If yes, you could download my App in google play store (KNX Controller) and try if it works there... If you have questions about the App you can write me a mail.

Honestly, I tried the app with only a few lights on-off.
The thermostat merten works like this:

Object heating / cooling (1 bit) (0 = heating, cooling = 1)
object mode (1 byte) ("4" = Frost / heat protection, "3" = Night economy, "2" = Standby, "1" = Comfort)

you can read this page 39 - 40

try it in the app - if this doesn't work either, you probably have a problem with the configuration of the thermostat. did you also tried it with ets? (send a 1,2,3 or 4 via 1 byte object to the ga?)
