their preferences.
Device Description
Appliance Controller
(Figure 2)
This appliance controller will connect and disconnect the power
supply to the appliances that the user wishes to use within the time
of use billing structure. The installer will connect the appliances
and set up time of use clock to meet the local utilities rate structure.
The user may then use the following controls to override the preset
functions.
CAUTION: Any use of the following controls will result in energy
being consumed at higher electrical rates set out by your utility.
Figure 2
Application
Some electrical utility companies offer different electricity
tariff rates based upon the time of day that the electricity is
consumed; this is called “time of use” billing. Typically the
utility will offer electricity at a lower rate when there is less
demand. These periods of low demand are often described
as Off-Peak times and periods of high demand are On-Peak
times. Off-Peak times are usually overnight and On-Peak
times are usually during a work day. In addition, some
electrical utilities offer a Mid-Peak time during the day that
has a rate between the Off-Peak and On-Peak. The actual
times and rates of the various periods vary by utility, check
with your local provider for rates and applicable times.
This Dimplex control panel is designed to allow the user
to take advantage of a time of use billing structure to save
money on electricity consumption. The control panel
consists of two separate controllers; one part of the panel
controls household appliances (eg. water heaters, under
floor, and other appliances) and the other part of the panel
controls Dimplex Storage Heaters to their optimal charge
level for the next day’s heating requirements. One Dimplex
control panel can control up to 4 appliances (rated up to
240V and 30A each) and up to 30 Dimplex Storage Heaters.
Your installation expert will ensure that the control panel
will operate correctly for the applicable time of use billing
structure. The following sections will allow the user to

Storage Heater Controller
The Storage Heater Controller functions to charge the connected
storage heaters to the appropriate level for the next days’ heating
needs. The Storage Heater Control uses advanced algorithms
together with the outside temperature, the time of use structure
and user settings to predict the amount of charge required.
The installation expert will have set the controller to the factory
recommended settings for the users’ specific installation. However,
there are several user adjustable settings that allow the user to
ensure that their personal comfort levels are always met.

reduce comfort by running low of heat by days’ end. Default is
85%.
E15: During spring and fall, the minimum amount of heat (%) that
the system will store. Increase if the system runs out of heat,
decrease if the room feels too warm. Default is 15%.
After initially setting up the Storage Heater there may be slight
adjustments required to ensure that it is running at optimum
performance. If the Storage Heater is not running correctly use the
following charts to adjust the settings.
CAUTION: The user must determine if the storage heater
controller was installed to use the Mid-Peak period before any
adjustments are made.

Input Menu for Users
During normal operation, the unit is in operator mode. The “Mode” LED does not light up. The menu item shown in the display therefore
depends on the position of the rotary selector switch as well as the setting of the ANZ (display) menu item. In operator mode, the individual menu items of the operator menu can be accessed with either the FORWARDS [▼] button or the BACKWARDS button [▲]. Individual
menu items can also be directly accessed via the rotary selector switch. Adjusting the flashing setting parameters is possible via the
"plus" [+] or "minus" [-] buttons. Changes will be made automatically with this adjustment. If 3 minutes should elapse and no adjustment
has taken place, the control device automatically switches back to the selected display status and the changes are saved.

Charge Level - E5
Changes to the basic charge level of all storage heating systems connected to
the charge control. The set charge can be either proportionally raised or lowered
by up to 30%, according to need. The change to the charge level should only be
made gradually, since the effect of these changes will only become apparent after
the unit has been charged.
Charge Start - E2
Specifies the effective external temperature (ATW) at which storage cylinder charging should begin. (The higher the selected setting, the earlier charging will start
and the higher the set charge amount at the same effective external temperature
/ ATW).
Base Charge Start - E15
Specifies the minimum charging base which comes into effect when the effective
external temperature set via E2 is undershot.
Recommended setting:
Insufficient charging in the transition period: raise E15 by 5% to 10%.
Excess charging in the transition period: lower E15 by 5%.
Additional Charging (Daytime Charging) - E10
Reduction or increase of an available daytime charging
E10 = 0% means no charging in the afternoon, independent of the effective external temperature.
! NOTE: In the event that the daytime charging via the TAS (daytime skip)
adjuster (TAS = E1 or TAS = TE; only accessible to technicians) is generally disabled at higher effective external temperatures, then the E10 adjuster is ineffective above these temperatures.
Effective External Temperature (ATW)
Display of the effective temperature at the external sensor location (at ATM (external temperature averaging) = 1: ATW (effective external temperature) corresponds to the averaged temperature at ATM (external temperature averaging) = 0:
ATW corresponds to current temperature)

Storage Heater Controller
Central Control Unit and Charge Controller Operation
The Storage Heater Controller controls the charging of storage
heating devices depending on the external temperature, and
controller set points and signals.
The Storage Heater Controller uses an external sensor, which is
installed in the brickwork of the house, to measure the weather
conditions and the building inertia. Those values are combined as
a reference variable, which is used with the various settings and
runtimes, from the signals from the control terminals, to control the
central control units output (charge rates = operating time signal to
Z1/Z2).

Figure 5
The charge controller that is built into the storage heater is an electronic-thermomechanical ON/OFF controller. The controller’s set
point is determined by the operating time signal (on device terminals
A1~/A2~) and by the intensity actuator (change selector knob on the
storage heater). The actual value of charging in all storage heaters is determined via a residual heat sensor that measures the core
temperature. The charge controller compares the set point with the
actual value and calculates the level of charging required based on
the difference between the two values. Power switching in the storage heater is thus controlled by the charge controller.
Setting the intensity actuator on the storage heater
(Charge Selector Knob)
In automatic operation, the intensity actuator on the storage heater
is set at the right-hand stop (factory setting), i.e. the storage heater
charges at the value specified by the Storage Heater Controller. In
areas which always have reduced heating requirements, e.g. bedrooms, charging of the storage heater can be reduced and the storage heater adjusted, by turning the charge selector knob to the left.
With the knob at the left hand stop, no charging takes place. During
automatic operation, operating errors and unintentional re-setting
can be prevented by removing the control button from the storage
heaters intensity actuator and covering it with the closing cap.
If the storage heater is not necessary in the summer months (or
even on the cooler summer nights), we recommend taking the entire
heating system out of operation. For more information, consult
your authorized electrician and your local utility company’s technical
connection requirements.

Installation and Operating Instructions for
Technicians
Installing the Central Control Unit
Installation must only be carried out by a technician authorized by
the respective utility company. The regulations of the local utility
company, as well as the relevant electrical standards regulations
are to be observed. The DCP2010 unit should be installed as close
to the distribution panel as possible.
Dimensions of the DCP2010 are 12” wide x 9 1/4” high x 4” deep
with a NEMA 1 indoor panel for surface mounting.
Installing the External Sensor
The external sensor is to be installed at least 2m (6.5 feet) above
the floor, preferably in the outer brickwork, see diagram below. The
sensor should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Heat sources (e.g.
ventilation shafts or tilted windows) must not influence the sensor
and thus affect the Storage Heater Controller.
Please observe the following:
•
•
The external sensor must be embedded in the mortar
The cable feedthrough must be carefully protected with thermal
insulation material.
The external sensor has a 2m (6.5’) long connection cable, which
can be extended to a maximum of 30m (98’) using an installation
lead #16/2 wire.
Wiring
Some terminals in the Charge Control Panel will not be used in a
typical installation. Their functions are outlined in the Technical Appendix.
The Charge Control Panel requires a minimum 15A 208/240VAC
circuit to operate the Appliance Controller and the Storage Heater
Controller. Preferably, this is a dedicated circuit as it will draw
power during all rate periods (On-peak, Off-peak, and Mid-peak).
Properly sized 2-conductor wire should be strain relieved and connected to the terminals marked L1 and L2 to supply the Charge
Control Panel.
Rate Indication
The Appliance Controller determines the current rate period by the
“Rate Signal” terminals. One terminal supplies a 24VAC signal,
while the other terminal is set to detect a 24VAC signal. An external
device is required to either block or pass the 24VAC signal. Dip
switch 8, described in the Device Description section determines
how the Charge Control Panel interprets the 24VAC signal.
Properly sized 2-conductor wire should be strain relieved and connected to the “Rate Signal” terminals. Care should be taken to separate the low voltage wiring from the high voltage wiring as dictated
by the relevant electrical code.
Appliance Controller
The Appliance Controller can operate up to 4 loads. Each load can
be any resistive load rated up to 208/240VAC 30A. Each circuit is
identified by a letter (circuit A = A1, A2, and A3).
Each appliance connected to the Charge Control Panel should be
on a dedicated circuit and have proper over current protection at the
service panel.
Properly sized 2-conductor wire should be strain relieved and connected to the terminals marked 1, 2 and 3. The appliance controller
will operate to open one pole of the circuit to de-activate the appliance. The second pole is passed through the terminals at position
3.

Control Panel to supply the correct voltage and control signals by
the manufacturer. The installer must connect the control lines for
the VFMQ storage heaters and the outdoor temperature sensor.
The outdoor temperature sensor is a low voltage device connected
to terminals W1 and W2. Properly sized 2-conductor wire should
be strain relieved and connected to the W1, and W2 terminals.
Care should be taken to separate the low voltage wiring from the
high voltage wiring as dictated by the relevant electrical code.
The storage heater control lines are 208/240VAC control lines that
must be run separately to the supply lines to the VFMQ storage
heaters. Properly sized 2-conductor wire should be strain relieved
and connected to the terminals marked Z1 and Z2 to control the
charging of the VFMQ storage heaters.
The connections at terminals L and N should not be interchanged
The LL (runtime), LF (charge release), LZ (additional charging)
and KU (heating curve switching) pilot wires must be connected in
phase with L (charging)
Should a phase be connected to terminal W1, W2, Z1 or Z2 due to
a mistake in the wiring, the unit will be destroyed.
Calculating the Control Output
•
•
•
The maximum control output of the Storage Heater Controller
charge control is 300 W.
The control output of the heating system depends on the device
type and number of devices. It can be calculated by adding the
control outputs of all storage heaters.
LF: Activated when LF (charge release) terminal is activated
LZ: Activated when LZ (runtime) terminal is activated
KU: Activated when KU (heating curve switching) terminal is
activated
ED: Activated when the control signal is output
ATM: Activated in external temperature averaging operation
(ATM (external temperature averaging) = Ja)
Abw: Activated in period of absence (Abw) mode
SUT:Activated when the control signal is suppressed

100% operating time (= charge suppression)
*For charge types with daytime charging periods and special LZ
(additional charging) release signals, the “LZ” terminal must be
activated
(Please observe the technical connection requirements of the utility
company).
Direct Activation via Charge Control Line Z1/Z2
Setting the Charge Control
The Storage Heater Controller can be used for direct activation of
VFDi, VFD, FSD, VNDi, VTDi and VKD storage heaters with electronic charge control via the charge control line.
The charge control must only be set by an experienced technician.
For direct activation via the Z1/Z2 charge control line, the network
connection does not lead through the heating contactor but rather
directly to the connection terminals of the storage heater. A constant
voltage is connected to terminals L1, L2 and L3.
Acivation for charge release is switched by the utility company via the
central control unit. At terminals Z1/Z2, the weather-dependent and
runtime-dependent control voltage is only active when “LF” or “LZ” is
not activated, the central control unit provides 100% operating time
signal (constant voltage), thus blocking the charging of the storage
heater. For direct activation, the “Digital System” adjuster must be
programmed to “D=Ja”
The Storage Heater Controller is preset as a backward control for
an 8-hour lower tariff-only release period. If adjustments to the technician menu are necessary, configuration mode must be activated
by pushing the “Special settings” button.

Adjustment
The full charge (E1) indicates the effective external temperature
(ATW), starting at which the charge control specifies full charging
by the charge controller. (The setting depends on the charge type
and the location of the system)
The main charging period (E3) determines the runtime hour in
which the night-time characteristic curve reaches the weatherdependent set charge rate. Note: Do not set E3 higher than the
lower tariff release.
For backward control:
E3 = tF - 1 h
For spread control: E3 = tF - 0.5
For forward control:
E3 = 0 h
(e.g. 8-hour lower tariff release and backward control E3 = 7 h)
For charge types with daytime charging periods, the minimum
base (E4) determines the height of the residual heat base at the
end of the daytime characteristic curve.
Note: When setting E4, please observe the tariff requirements
of the utility company. The E4 adjuster does not function during
simultaneously activated “LF” and “LZ” terminals (forward control).
Adjuster for automatic external temperature-dependent
suppression of daytime charging,
• TAS (daytime skip) = E1:
Daytime charging, e.g.
at higher tariff release, suppressed until the full-charge
temperature set with E1 is reached.
• TAS (daytime skip) = NO:
Daytime skip is switched off;
daytime charging will carry on depending on the characteristic
curve adjuster. E10 and E4.
• TAS (daytime skip) = ..°C
Daytime charging, e.g. at
higher tariff release, is suppressed until an adjustable effective
external temperature (- 10 … 10°C) is reached.
Daytime switching (TU) determines the runtime point at which
the Storage Heater Controller switches from the night-time to the
daytime characteristic curve.
The lock (SEH) determines the moment at which the Storage
Heater Controller switches into lock status. In lock status, the timing
element runs independent of LL (runtime) or LL/LF (charge release)
activation until the circulation period has ended.
The lock setting is calculated based on the release period tF
(release period) - 2 h, and should exceed the additional release
period.

Circulation period UMD [8 ... 23 hours]
Heating curve switching (KU)[KUT
(heating curve switching, temperature) / KUP
(heating curve switching, percent)]
The circulation period (UMD) determines the runtime after which
a new daytime cycle can be activated by starting the timer
element (LL activation) of the Storage Heater Controller.
In active mode, the heating curve switching KU (activation of
the KU terminal or automatic program for lowering) is followed
by switching to one with a KUT (heating curve switching,
temperature) or KUP (heating curve switching, percent)
adjustable, second charge curve.
Heat content
Effective external temperature
KUT (characteristic curve, temperature) =… °C [5 ... to 15°C]
With KUT (heating curve switching, temperature) and heating
curve switching (KU) in active mode (lower or frost protection
operation), a second charge curve is activated which provides an
adjustable charge start (KUT (characteristic curve, temperature)
in °C) via a parallel shift of the charge curve determined by E1,
E2 and E15.
KUP (heating curve switching, percent) = … %: [0 ... 100%]
For KUP (heating curve switching, percent) and activated KU
terminals, a second characteristic curve (proportional reduction)
is activated. The charge curve determined by E1, E2 and E15 is
thereby proportionally reduced to the value set with KUP (heating
curve switching, percent).
External temperature averaging (ATM) [Ja/Nein]
For active external temperature averaging (ATM = Ja), the
daytime temperature average value (calculated according to a
mathematical formula) is used to determine the set charge rate.
(Compensation for larger temperature fluctuations, low night-time
and high daytime temperatures during transition periods.)
Note: For active external temperature averaging (ATM = Ja), the
effective external temperature (ATW) displayed is the averaged
temperature.

Software Reset
A software reset returns all settings to factory defaults.
1. Configuration mode is activated by pushing the “Special settings” button (“MODE” LED is lit red)
2. Press and hold the FORWARD (▼) and BACKWARD (▲) buttons simultaneously for approx. 60 seconds.
3. A brief change in colour of the LED display from red to orange indicates that the software reset was successful.
Start-Up
External temperature display (ATW – effective external temperature):
When the central control unit is connected to the power supply, it takes approx. 1 minute for the external temperature to be correctly
measured and displayed.
Setting the runtime (LA) when operating the charge control with timer function
The charge control features automatic runtime synchronisation. Upon leaving the factory, the runtime is set to 0.00 h. For charge types with
night-time-only charging (e.g. 8 + 0 h), this setting does not need to be changed. The charge control synchronises itself during the next
lower-tariff release. For charge types with additional daytime charging periods, the runtime must be set during start-up.
The following procedure is recommended:
Subtract the starting point of the night-time (NT) release from 24 and add the current time to this result.
Example: The start of the lower tariff release is 10 p.m.; the current time is 10:15 a.m.
24:00 h – 22:00 h + 10:15 h = 12:15 h
→ The runtime (LA) must be set to 12:15 p.m. (see operator menu)
Note: The runtime cannot be changed with an active real-time timer (Timer = Ja) in combination with FSU (release synchronisation with
timer) = Ja. This automatic runtime synchronisation occurs automatically at the earliest start of release (LFS).

For initial start-up of storage heaters, these must be charged according to your installation and operating instructions.

Correcting Basic Settings
The recommended basic settings are standard values that may have to be changed according to: the type and location of the building,
the installation location of the external sensor, the release and additional release periods, the utility company’s technical connection
requirements and individual user preferences.
If changes are made to the settings, please note that corrections will only become apparent on the following day after the unit has been
charged. Changes to the charge control affect the entire heating system!
Making Basic Changes to the Charge Level
The basic charge level of the heating system can be changed via the E5 charge level adjuster (operator menu) In order to increase
charging, the E5 adjuster must be adjusted to the plus range. Adjustment to the minus range leads to a decrease in charging.

Diagnostic Information
The weather-dependent and runtime-controlled ED (operating time) signal is thus applied to the Z1/Z2 terminals of the central
control unit only upon activation of the LF (charge release) or LZ (additional charging) terminals. If terminal LF (charge release) or LZ
(additional charging) is not activated, the central control unit always outputs a continuous voltage (100% ED (operating time)). To check the
control voltage signal, it is necessary to activate the LF (charge release) or LZ (additional charging) terminal.
Testing the Total Control Resistance
The maximum output control rating of the ZWM 095 AC central control unit is 300W ( = 176 Ohm load).
Before the power supply is switched on, the total resistance of the control resistors connected to control outputs Z1 and Z2 must be
measured. The measured resistance must not be lower than 176 Ω.
• The connecting leads must not be connected to Z1 and Z2 when measurements are made.
Note: In older storage heaters, the control resistors of the electromechanical charge controllers can be temporarily deactivated via a fourth
changeover contact in the charge controller. For this reason, wait 10 minutes before measuring the total resistance of all control resistors.
•
•
Testing the Triac
The display (operating time) is activated when the triac is connected through. A phase tester at terminal Z1 flashes in time with the
ED dot at the bottom left corner.
Testing the External Sensor
Set the rotary selector switch to the effective external temperature display (“ATW”). In the charge control display, the effective
external temperature is indicated which serves as the basis for calculating the operating time (ED) signal.
In order to carry out a plausibility test (checking that the temperature measured via the external sensor agrees with the displayed
temperature (ATW)), the external temperature mode ATM must be switched off for the testing (ATM = No). When external temperature
averaging is activated (ATM = Ja), it is not the current temperature at the external sensor that is indicated in the display, but rather the
averaged external temperature.

Correction of the external-temperature measured value is possible [-10 …
10 °C].
Correction of the external sensor should only be carried out if the
installation location of the sensor is known and the temperature of the
sensor or wall (depending on the installation conditions) can be measured!
External temperature averaging must be switched off during measurement
(ATM (external temperature averaging) = Nein).
(For example: If the ATW (effective external temperature) is 4 ° too low
compared to the measured value, then a corrected value of “4 °C” should
be set using the “+” button.)
Operating time system (EDS)
[37 ... 100%]
Operating time systems can be set between 37% and 100%. Required
when using the Storage Heater Controller in older systems with storage
heaters, e.g. for
37%, 40%, 68% or 72% operating time system.

Switching to SER (service function) = Ja provides the option of targeted
checking of a storage heating system by selecting the service charge rate
(SEL) in %.
- SEL 0%
Output of an operating time control signal of > 80% operating time (at EDS
(operating time system 80%). System or devices must not access the
network.
- SEL (service charge rate) 1%…100%
Output of an operating time control signal corresponding to the table
above. (At EDS (operating time system) 80%). The system (or units) can
access the network when set to 100%
(Exception: system is fully charged).
The service function switches off automatically after a period of 4 hours or
after exiting the menu item.

Additional Input Options for Storage Heater Controller

Daytime signal suppression (SUT) [Ja/Nein]
Summertime signal suppression
(SUS) [Ja/Nein]
Release synchronisation with timer (FSU) [Ja/Nein]
Comment
Adjustment
If daytime signal suppression is active (SUT = Ja), no operating
time control signal is output during the daytime characteristic curve,
i.e. between the daytime switching point (TU) and circulation period
end (UMD) as long as terminals LF / LZ are not activated.
The suppression of the control signal at higher external
temperatures (summer operation), in combination with
electromechanical charge controllers, serves to reduce control
energy consumption. When summer signal suppression mode is
activated, an operating time (ED) signal of 0% is output as long as
the effective external temperature (ATW) is higher than the value
set for E2. The Sh-t relay is not activated in this mode.
If FSU = Ja is set, release synchronisation (with timer) is active.
The runtime (LA) is then coupled with the real-time timer and can
no longer be changed.
Synchronisation takes place automatically at LFS (earliest start
of release). (The terminal functioning of LL (runtime), LF (charge
release) and LZ (additional charging), and the function of the lock
remain unchanged.)
If, in normal operation, the runtime (LA) is not LA = 00.00 hours
at the time of LFS (earliest start of release), it will be set to 00.00
hours.
Operating mode FSU (release synchronisation with timer) = Ja
in connection with LSU (charge synchronisation with timer) = Ja
can be used to release time-controlled charging in periods without
release signals or during very long release periods. During time
periods in which charging is not to occur, the safety overlap 100%
operating time (ED) will be released.
** Earliest start of release (LFS) [00:00 ... 23:59]
Point in time from which storage cylinder charging can take place
when LF is LZ are activated.
(Runtime start (LA) at LSU (charge synchronisation with timer) =
Ja)
** Maximum duration of release (LFD) [00:00 ... 23:59 h]
Maximum duration of storage cylinder charging during the nighttime release period
** Earliest start of additional release (LZS) [00:00 ... 23:59]
Point in time from which additional accumulator charging can take
place when LF or LZ is activated.
** Maximum additional release duration (LZD) [00:00 ... 23:59]
Maximum duration of charging during
the additional release period
** Synchronised charging via timer (LSU) [Ja/Nein]
To activate synchronised charging secondary to the utility company
control signals via an integrated timer, the parameter LSU (charge
synchronisation with timer) = Ja is to be programmed.
Active synchronised charging is indicated on the display by the
“Timer” symbol
