1 Heat pump connection to the LAN network
Heat pump Sinclair is equipped with a web server, which gives the possibility to display current
status of heat pump or if necessary to change its settings through web interface. This can be done
with the equipment using web browser (PC, SmartPhone, tablet), which is connected to the same
LAN network.
If the LAN network is connected to the internet via router, the heat pump can (based on your
settings) send data related the operation and settings to the Sinclair control center, which gives the
possibility to service engineers to optimize the heat pump to the maximum performance or analyze
possible faults. No personal data are acquired and sent out.
Fig. 1: Example of heat pump connection to the LAN network
Connection of heat pump is made with a standard Ethernet cable with RJ45 connector, which is
connected to any free LAN port of the main router (see Fig. 1).
Factory default setting of the heat pump is the automatic network connection using DHCP protocol.
After connection to the network, heat pump asks DHCP server (this function is mostly done by the
router) for its IP address and supplementary data (Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS).
If you do not use DHCP in your network, then it is necessary to set heat pump IP address manually
according to the settings of your network (please contact your network administrator).
All necessary settings are accessible from heat pump operation panel in menu LAN settings (for
more details see Heat pump operation manual). Here you can also see the current heat pump
IP address, which you will use for web interface in your web browser.

2 Web interface
If your heat pump is connected to LAN network and has its IP address, write this address into
address box of your browser, as for example 192.168.1.35 as shown on Fig. 2.

2.4 Heat pump settings page
This page guides the operator to the settings of all operation parameters of the heat pump and to
the selection of language for the web interface.
Fig. 6: Heat pump settings page
Displayed buttons are used for the setting of the following item groups:
Comfort settings.
Priority settings.
Operation parameter settings.
Equitherm settings.
LAN settings.
6
Remote supervision settings.
GSM module settings.
Language selection.
2.4.1 Comfort settings
This page can be used for a simple and quick change of inside temperature without the necessity
to change equitherm settings or other heat pump settings. You simply select how many degrees
you want to increase or decrease the inside temperature than usually.
Individual parameters can be changed after clicking on them and inputting the value from the
keyboard, or changed using buttons
and
.

2.4.2 Priority settings
This page is used to define the importance of individual heating circuits and thus the sequence, in
which they will be heated. If there is for example the demand to heat two different circuits, heating
starts with that one with a higher priority. The circuit with a lower priority will be heated only after
heating that one with a higher priority.
If some heating circuit has a zero priority, this circuit will be eliminated from the heating process.
Furthermore it is possible to define, where the heat from solar collectors should be directed.
Fig. 8: Priority settings
Description of icons:
Priority for domestic hot water (DHW tank).
Priority for heating water (HW tank).
Priority for swimming pool.
8
Direction of water from solar collector. These items can be selected:
•
automatic – according to the priorities
•
heating – only to heating water tank
•
swimming pool – only to swimming pool
The most common setting is shown on Fig. 8.
2.4.3 Operation parameter settings
This page is used for settings of demand temperatures for all circuits, setting of RCS (Ripple
Control Systems) tariff and conditions for using bivalent heat source (embedded heater or other
source).
Individual parameters can be changed after clicking on them and inputting the value from the
keyboard, or changed using buttons
and
.
Fig. 9: Operation parameter settings
Temperature settings:
•
Start temperature for DHW – if the temperature in DHW tank drops below the set
temperature, the heat pump starts heating DHW tank.
•
Stop temperature for DHW – when the temperature in DHW tank rises during heating above
the set temperature, the heat pump stops heating.
•
Start temperature for HW – if the temperature in HW (heating water) tank drops below the
set temperature, the heat pump starts heating HW tank.
•
Stop temperature for HW – when the temperature in HW (heating water) tank rises during
heating above the set temperature, the heat pump stops heating HW tank.
9
•
Start temperature for swimming pool – if the temperature in swimming pool drops below the
set temperature, the heat pump starts heating swimming pool.
•
Stop temperature for swimming pool – when the temperature in swimming pool rises during
heating above the set temperature, the heat pump stops heating swimming pool.
•
Start delta of solar – if the difference between water temperature in the solar system and
water temperature in the target circuit (swimming pool or heating water tank) rises above
the set value, the heat pump starts heating the target circuit.
•
Stop delta of solar – if the difference between water temperature in the solar system and
water temperature in the target circuit (swimming pool or heating water tank) drops below
the set value, the heat pump stops heating the target circuit.
Impact of RCS tariff (RCS = Ripple Control System, switching between low and high tariff):
In this section it is possible to set outside temperatures, when individual circuits are heated
regardless of RCS tariff, or on the other side if the tariff is respected. Temperatures are set
separately for DHW circuit, for heating water and for swimming pool.
If for example the outside temperature drops to the values, when heating stop during high tariff
should have impact on the thermal comfort in the house, then it is possible to ignore the tariff for
these temperatures and to continue heating even during the high tariff.
Bivalent source settings:
Bivalent source (electric heating element) serves as a heating support under extreme outside
conditions, when the performance of heat pump drops and the heat pump would not be able to
provide sufficient heating.
•
Permitted temperature – the outside temperature, when it is permitted to use the bivalent
source.
•
Prohibited temperature – the outside temperature, when it is prohibited to use the bivalent
source.
•
Delay in bivalency – setting the condition, when bivalent source can be switched on. If the
heat pump heats the heating circuit and cannot reach the set temperature within the set
time, then the bivalent source is switched on.

2.4.4 Equitherm settings
This page is used to define equitherm curves for radiator and underfloor heating.
Equitherm curve defines, which water temperature is necessary for heating depending on the
outside temperature. The curve is defined for each house individually (because each house has
a different thermal loss, radiator surface etc.), so that requested thermal comfort in the house can
be kept in all weather conditions.
The curve is defined by four points – for four different outside temperatures are determined four
different temperatures of heating water for radiators and four different temperatures of heating
water for underfloor heating (these temperatures are usually lower than temperatures for
radiators).

same settings, which are accessible from heat pump operation panel; LAN settings menu (more
details in chapter …).

2.4.6 Remote supervision settings
This page is used for remote supervision settings (if the heat pump is connected via router to the
internet).
Fig. 12: Remote supervision settings

2.4.7 GSM module settings
This page is used for heat pump GSM module settings (if installed).
Fig. 13: GSM settings
This setting gives the possibility to enter up to 16 authorized telephone numbers, which can control
the heat pump from the mobile phone, or which can receive an information message in case of any
fault or event.
Furthermore it is possible to enter so called SMS password, which can be used for heat pump
control from any telephone line.
