Sensor Calibration and Error messages
The hob control performs an automatic
calibration in reference to the sensor-,
glass- and ambient conditions after the
main voltage is applied. No objects are
allowed to cover the glass area of the
sensor during the calibration. In addition,
the hob control cannot be exposed to
strong illumination, like sunlight, strong
halogen lights, etc.
Application Example:
The calibration performs without any
problems if the following illumination
IS present:
lllumination through a light bulb without
reflector (100W, opal) in a distance of 70
cm above the glass ceramic hob.
After a successful calibration the function
of the hob is also guaranteed even with
strong illumination, for example with
halogen spot with reflector ( 50W).
In case of an error, the calibration is
repeated until the ambient conditions
allow a successful calibration. The
operation of the hob control is only
possible, if the calibration of all sensors
were successfully completed.
The touch control has a
sensor which protects against
overheating. When responding
to this sensor, the relevant burner
will be deactivated. For information
