DATA PLATE
GENERAL FUNCTIONS
The hybrid control module determines the proportion of the total energy
expenditure that will be covered by either the condensing boiler or the
external unit, thereby optimizing the efficiency of the heating system.
On the data plate you will find details of the part number, appliance
output and approval data.
On the hybrid manager, a data plate is affixed to the right hand side
panel of the casing.

After flowing through the hybrid manager, the heating water returns
either directly to the heating system or first through the condensing
boiler and then onwards to the heating system.
A high efficiency (HE) pump integrated into the hybrid manager provides
the heating water circulation inside the hybrid manager. Only the HE
pump inside the hybrid manager runs as long as the air to water heat
pump operates on its own.

On the external unit, the data plate is located under the service cover.
The pump inside the condensing boiler and the HE pump inside the
hybrid manager run concurrently if either the condensing boiler on its
own or condensing boiler and air to water heat pump operate
simultaneously.
A filter with sieve inside the hybrid manager protects the heat exchanger
and the heating system from contamination through small particles.
A flow switch with magnetic toggle switch ensures that the external unit
only operates as long as the water flow rate is adequate for the Hybrid
Manager.
The heat transfer between the refrigerant (R410A) and the heating
water takes place inside the heat exchanger of the Hybrid Manager.
AUTOMATIC DEFROST FUNCTION
The service cover may only be removed by a competent
person.
2.4
GENERAL INFORMATION ON HEAT PRODUCTION
Ice forms on the external unit at low temperatures ( 7 °C). In the
temperature range of +7 °C to -9 °C, heat from the heating system water
is used briefly to automatically defrost the external unit.
During defrosting, the boiler remains available for heating the heating
water. The defrost cycle takes approx. 5 minutes.
Buildings can be heated efficiently with condensing boilers and air to
water heat pumps. However, these two technologies have different
performance characteristics.
Condensing boilers as well as air to water heat pumps use energy gained
from fossil fuels. In condensing boilers, gas is burnt directly inside the
appliance.
Air to water heat pumps use electrical energy which has been obtained
from a number of different sources. This includes fossil-fuel-burning
power stations. These are typically around 40 % efficient in converting
fuel to useful electricity. Although an air to water heat pump is far more
efficient than a condensing boiler at converting its input energy
(electricity) into heat, the electricity used has a larger amount of fossilfuel consumption attached. This consumption of fossil fuels is referred
to as the primary energy factor (PEF).
The fan draws ambient air via the evaporator of the air to water heat
pump. This extracts heat from the ambient air. The compressor
mechanically increases the temperature and transfers it to the water
circuit.
The PEF of electricity is generally 2.3, the PEF of oil and gas is 1.1, the
PEF of mixed electric power 2.6. The coefficient of performance (COP)
of an air to water heat pump is, subject to outside temperature and water
flow temperature, between 2 and 5.5.
Depending on the current situation and heat demand, either the
condensing boiler or the air to water heat pump may offer a more
favourable energy-to-cost ratio.
The hybrid package integrates both technologies in one system and
thereby offers the opportunity to use either heat source optimally at any
time. Users can decide for themselves whether the emphasis should be
on primary energy consumption and/or whether costs take priority,
alternatively, a combination of primary energy and costs can be used.

ENSURING FROST PROTECTION
NOTICE: Frost damage
When the heating system is switched off, it can freeze up
if there is a frost.
▶ In the case of a risk of frost, have the DHW circuit
drained by an a competent person or mix antifreeze
that is approved for use with the respective
condensing boiler into the heating water.
Whether antifreeze may be used and which type is
permissible depends on the installed condensing boiler.
▶ Observe the details in the condensing boiler
installation instructions.
4.3
RESTARTING THE HYBRID SYSTEM AFTER AN
INTERRUPTION IN OPERATION
NOTICE: Damage to the external unit from low operating
temperature.
When restoring the power supply following an
interruption of operation.
The Power supply to the external unit must be ‘live’ for at
least 12 hours before starting operation. This is to
ensure that the compressor is warmed up sufficiently to
avoid any liquid refrigerant from entering the
compressor. This is particularly important during colder
periods.
The 12 hour period also compensates for any unsettling
of the lubricating oil within the compressor which may
have occurred during transportation.
If this 12 hour time period cannot be met damage to the
outdoor unit may result.
▶ If the appliances fail to start contact your installer.

SETTING HYBRID SYSTEMS
4.5.1 OVERVIEW OF THE CONTROL MODES
These parameters can be set either via the FW 200
weather-compensated controller or via the hybrid
control module. These values are transferred and
overwritten respectively. The following section will
describe how to make the settings using the FW 200
weather-compensated controller.
7
STARTING AND STOPPING THE HYBRID SYSTEM
You can check which of the following control modes the contractor has
set for you in the Info menu ( technical documentation FW200) on the
FW200 weather-compensated controller.
• CO2-optimised
With CO2-optimised mode, the system control decides when
operating the heat pump or boiler results in the greatest CO2
reduction.
• Cost-optimised
With the cost-optimised mode, the system control decides on the
basis of current energy prices. Rising gas prices result in longer
operation of the heat pump, whilst rising electricity prices result in
longer operation of the boiler.
• Changeover temperature
With outside temperature-dependent mode, the boiler starts
operating from a defined outside temperature.
• CO2:cost mix
Mixed mode comprising environmental factors and costs.
Environmental aspects and financial aspects are both taken into
account.
4.5.2 INSTALLER SETTINGS: HYBRID MENU
The following parameters must be set by the installer:
Control modes for hybrid systems:

6.1
WHAT MAKES REGULAR MAINTENANCE
IMPORTANT?
Regular service is essential for the following reasons:
• to maintain a high level of efficiency and to operate the hybrid system
economically
• to achieve a high level of operational reliability.
The appliance is charged with R410A refrigerant.
R410A is a greenhouse gas. It must not enter the environment.
CAUTION: Incorrect disposal is an environmental
hazard!
Escaping refrigerant damages the environment.
▶ Refrigerant may be disposed of by qualified
contractors only.
▶ If you wish to discard refrigerant, please contact your local authorities
and ask for the correct method of disposal.
5.2

ENERGY SAVING TIPS
INSPECTION/MAINTENANCE
So that gas consumption and environmental impact can be kept as low
as possible for as long as possible, we recommend that you take out an
inspection and maintenance contract with an authorised contractor
covering an annual inspection and service subject to demand.
HEATING CONTROLS
With modern heating systems designed around a 20 °C heat loss across
the system. The system must be balanced correctly and the radiators
may need upgrading.
The temperature of each room can be set individually (except primary
room with the room thermostat) using the thermostatic radiator valves.
Reducing the setting of the room thermostat by 1°C can reduce fuel
consumption by up to 10%.
For further information, see the relevant installation and operating
instructions of the controller.
THERMOSTATIC VALVES
Fully open the thermostatic radiator valves in order to achieve the
required room temperature. Change the required room temperature at
the programming unit only if the temperature is not achieved after a
prolonged period.
RADIATORS
If a radiator is sited underneath a window, its performance will be
affected if the curtains are allowed to drape over the radiator.
Shelves fitted above or in front of the radiator should also be avoided.
It is advisable to manually adjust all thermostatic radiator valves every 2
- 3 months to prevent them sticking. Ensure radiator valves are correctly
set and not damaged.
UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEM
Never set the flow temperature higher than the maximum flow
temperature recommended by the manufacturer.
ROOF INSULATION
Around 30% of the heat loss from a property is through the roof. Replace

FAULTS
WINDOW FRAMES
Single glazed windows, particularly those with steel frames, can lose a
great deal of heat. Consideration should be given to replacement with
PVCu or wooden framed double glazed units.
DRAUGHTS
Try to ensure that draughts around doors, windows, letter boxes and
keyholes etc. are reduced by using a suitable draught excluder.
WARNING: Air vents
▶ Do not block or seal any air vents that are installed to
ensure that the central heating boiler operates safely.
CURTAINS
Lined curtains, or heavier full length curtains can provide excellent
insulation. However, always ensure that the curtains do not drape over
radiators.

GLOSSARY
OPERATING PRESSURE
THERMOSTATIC VALVE
The operating pressure is the pressure in the heating system.
Thermostatic valves are mechanical temperature controllers that
enables a lower or higher heating water flow rate subject to ambient
temperature in order to maintain a constant temperature.
PROGRAMMING UNIT
The programming unit ensures the automatic control of the flow
temperature subject to outside temperature (in case of weathercompensated controllers) in conjunction with a time programme.
INSTANTANEOUS WATER HEATER PRINCIPLE
The water is heated as it flows through the appliance. The maximum
draw-off rate is quickly available, i.e. without long waiting times or
interruptions for the heat-up process.
HEATING RETURN
The heating return is the pipework that returns the heating water at a
lower temperature from the radiators/underfloor heating system etc. to
the heat source.
HEATING WATER
Heating water is the water that circulates in the heating system.
COEFFICIENT OF PERFORMANCE
The coefficient of performance , (COP), is the actual or calculated
identifier for air to water heat pumps under specified operating
conditions, similar to the standardised fuel consumption for vehicles.
FLOW TEMPERATURE
Flow temperature is the temperature with which the heated heating
water flows from the appliance to the radiators, underfloor heating
circuits, etc.
EFFICIENCY
Efficiency describes the ratio between available output and energy
input. Under ideal circumstances, the efficiency is 1. Technical
processes always involve some losses, hence the efficiency of technical
equipment is always below 1.
Air to water heat pumps draw a large proportion of the energy [they
deliver] from the environment. This portion of energy is not described as
supplied energy, as it is free of charge. Were the efficiency under these
conditions to be calculated, it would be  1. As this would not be correct,
the coefficient of performance (COP) was introduced for air to water
heat pumps in order to describe the ratio between available or useful
energy to that which has been expended (in this case purely the working
energy). The coefficient of performance for air to water heat pumps lies
between 3 and 6.
The coefficient of performance  describes the ratio between the
available heating energy and the power drawn by the compressor.
PRIMARY ENERGY FACTOR (PEF)
The consumption of fossil fuels is referred to as the primary energy
factor (PEF).
