The Plug and play automation application contains functions that are either global or mapped to rooms. The functions include

  • Operating mode scheduler
  • Heating / cooling changeover function according to calendar or manual operation
  • Energy consumption calculations (electrical, heating, and cooling)
  • Electrical meter tariff calculations
  • Primary heating demand
  • Primary cooling demand

Functions are assigned to disciplines based on domain, such as comfort, heating, cooling or metering.

In the view Commissioning > Disciplines & Functions available functions are listed in the right column. The functions are added to different disciplines: Comfort, Cooling and refrigeration, Heating, and Energy Management. The functions determine the system operating mode and metrics displayed on the dashboard. Selected functions are activated by drag and drop to the respective discipline, and the result is displayed in the column to the right.

The scheduler controls the operating mode and is used to switch operating discipline (between Comfort, Economy and Protection) in a room.

The following functions are available:
