Room temperature measurement
The value valid for temperature control can originate in various sources:
– A room unit via PPS2
– An analog sensor via analog input B1
– Mean value of several sensors
– The bus.
If none of these sources supplies a valid room temperature, the following will happen:
• the controller uses the mean value from the effective heating and cooling setpoints
for control until a valid measured value is again received
• the controller issues an alarm "Room temp. sensor error"
• the bus output sends 0°C
• if slaves are connected, they receive an invalid temperatur (327.67°C)
• if a room unit is connected to a slave, the slave uses the temperature value of its
room unit when two heartbeat periods have elapsed.
Local temperature sensor at PPS2 interface
PPS2 (CP+, CP-)
Local temperature sensor at analog input
The sensors connected to terminal B1 can be tasked with different functions:
Only measured value
Supply air (cascade)
RXB (KNX) application library
If a QAX ... room unit (with a PPS2
interface) is connected to the controller, the
room temperature is measured by the
temperature sensor built into the room unit.
Alternatively, an LG-Ni1000 sensor, type
QAA24, may be connected to analog input B1
of the room controller.
Room indoor air sensor (can also be used for
averaging, see below).
Return air sensor
(refer also to Section 9.2.4, "Periodic fan kick")
No sensor connected
(basic setting, except for FNC08)
Uses the signal, see "analog input B1", page 138.
Supply air temperature for cascade control.
The sensor is automatically configured as a supply air
sensor if application FNC08 is selected.
