At Worcester, we believe in providing heating engineers with a range of choices that will enable them to provide the best solution for their customers. This philosophy is reﬂected in the breadth of our controls offering and our continued investment in developing new control technologies.

With energy prices set to boiler itself. continue rising for the foreseeable future, homeowners want maximum efﬁciency to So it makes sense to take a closer look at keep their bills down and to minimise their the other parts of the system where we can carbon footprint. improve performance – and the controls side is an obvious area to focus on. Building Regulations Current and future editions of the Building Homeowner savings Regulations are to demand higher levels of Though 10-15 years ago, saving 10% control to achieve greater efﬁciencies, while on a fuel bill would not have been very bringing them in line with the Code for signiﬁcant, nowadays depending on your Sustainable Homes. level of fuel consumption it could amount to as much as £150 and 630kg carbon dioxide* a year, very quickly covering the cost of the chosen control. 4 *Source: Energy Saving Trust Code for Sustainable Homes The Code for Sustainable Homes, which has been in effect since April 2007, introduced minimum standards in new homes for energy and water efﬁciency. The Energy-related Products Directive (ErP) The ErP Directive covers all products that consume energy, such as boilers, heat pumps, solar thermal etc. It also includes controls, which are deﬁned using ‘classes’. These run from Class I (a simple on/off room stat) through to Class VIII (multi-sensor room control for use with modulating heating appliances). Each control class equates to a certain percentage uplift in system efﬁciency e.g. a class VI weather compensating control Smart heating and hot water control and room thermostat will add 4% efﬁciency The new Worcester Wave smart control to the heating system. allows users to take control of their heating system from anywhere in the world*.

The ErP Directive, which is a new regulation set by the European Union, is designed to drive improvements in the efﬁciency and performance of heating and hot water products. Its purpose is to ensure that end users are aware of the level of energy efﬁciency inherent within their appliances. As such, the Directive will help improve the overall efﬁciency of the housing stock, while enabling homeowners to reduce their energy bills. The ErP regulations cover boilers, combination boilers, heat pumps and other heating appliances up to 400kW. What is Energy Labelling? The Energy Labelling involves a label which we are familiar with today on washing machines and televisions at the point of sale. The Energy Labelling Product A regulations introduce Europe-wide energy labelling Model name requirements for boilers, combination boilers, water heaters and other heating products up to 70kW and hot water cylinders under 500 litres. CH efficiency band DHW efficiency band How will the labelling scheme work? The new Energy Labelling Directive will introduce new efﬁciency classes from A++ to G alongside the existing SEDBUK rating for boilers in the domestic and light commercial sectors. Most condensing boilers will fall within the A band, which requires them to achieve more than 90% seasonal efﬁciency, while renewable technologies such as heat pumps will likely be in the A+ or A++ bands (depending on ﬂow temperature). 8 Sound power level Maximum heating output What about systems that contain What about controls? different products? The ErP Directive covers all products that In these circumstances, there is a responsibility to consume energy, such as boilers, heat pumps, provide a package label when combining a heating solar thermal etc. It also includes controls, appliance with a temperature control and/or solar which are deﬁned using ‘classes’. These run device, cylinder or a supplementary heating from Class I (a simple on/off room stat) through appliance (for example, a two-boiler cascade with to Class VIII (multi-sensor room control for use a combined total output of under 70kW). with modulating heating appliances). The person who puts that package together will Each control class equates to a certain percentage need to produce a package document known as uplift in system efﬁciency e.g. a class VI weather a ﬁche (data table) and label that provides the compensating control and room thermostat will add combined energy efﬁciency rating rather than 4% efﬁciency to the heating system. Details of the ratings of each individual component. controls class for each Worcester control can be found on each product page. For example, this could be the merchant’s responsibility if they supply a complete package under one part number or the installer if the items are bought individually under separate part numbers. In either circumstance, Worcester will provide an online tool that makes calculating the overall package efﬁciency of a Worcester system effortless. ErP easy as ABC with Worcester The Energy Labelling obligation under the Energy Related Products (ErP) Directive comes into force on the 26th September 2015. Worcester will have a number of measures in place to support you including: An online tool which creates product and heating system labels ErP will be covered in all Worcester training courses ErP experts – our technical and customer support teams can answer all your questions.

D D3 DD 17 FR10 Intelligent Room Thermostat The FR10 is an intelligent room thermostat that enables load compensation and will offer energy savings compared to standard on/off controls. It can be used in conjunction with your existing external 230V programmer. Features and benefits • Compatible with your existing external 230V programmers • Programmer and room thermostat separate, familiarity for end user • Large, clear display, simple dial adjustment • Easy for installer to explain operation • Hidden intelligence • No additional knowledge required for end user operation • Load compensation • Increased efﬁciency of condensing boiler. EFFICIENCY +3%* Load compensation The FR10’s load compensation feature means that, rather than just switching the boiler on and off, it will adjust the ﬂow temperature of the central heating water in line with set heating temperature requirements. The smaller the difference between the actual temperature and the set-point temperature, the lower the ﬂow temperature from the boiler. In this way the FR10 minimises boiler cycling so less energy is wasted in ﬁring up the boiler after each ‘off’ cycle. Wall mounted Typically, the FR10 is mounted on the wall in the same position in the property as a traditional thermostat. As with traditional thermostats, any radiators in the same space as the controller should NOT be ﬁtted with a thermostatic Easy to use radiator valve (TRV). Operation by the user is very similar to traditional thermostats, with a large clear display and simple dial for adjusting set-point temperature. Consequently, it is very easy to explain to the end user. 18 *The FR10 is a +3% control when installed with a Greenstar gas-fired boiler and connected to a weather sensor; and a +1% control when connected to a Greenstar Heatslave II oil-fired boiler. FR110 Programmable Room Thermostat The FR110 is an intelligent programmable room thermostat that enables load compensation for heating and time control of hot water systems. Features and benefits • Wall mounted, with clear back-lit display • Ease of use for the installer and end user • Programmable room thermostat • Varied temperatures throughout the day • Economy temperature • Integrated solar control using ISM1 • Removes need for separate Worcester TDS10 controller • Maximum beneﬁt and efﬁciency from solar installation • Load compensation • Increased efﬁciency of condensing boiler. EFFICIENCY +3% Six heating and hot water set-points The controller provides the choice of six weekly heating programmes, with six switching points per day. When used with system boilers it also offers a weekly hot water programme with six switching points per day. On combi boilers the six switching points can be used to switch pre-heat on where the hot water will be delivered to the tap quickly, and energy saving economy mode where the pre-heat function is turned off. Pre-set heating programmes The FR110 offers three pre-set temperature proﬁles for added convenience. • Comfort setting (21ºC), typically for use in the morning • • and evening Load compensation Economy setting (15ºC), typically used to keep the Once installed, the FR110’s integral low voltage EMS Bus building warm through the day device communicates with the boiler’s built-in Heatronic Frost protection (5ºC), for when the property is 3 controls to provide load-compensated control that ﬁnely unoccupied for long periods or the heating is off in tunes ﬂow water temperatures to heating demand. cold weather.

Electrical connections The Worcester range of intelligent controls does not require a 230V mains supply. Instead, connection is made to the boiler via the BUS connections on the Heatronic 3 circuit board within the appliance. All BUS connections are polarity free. Permissible cable lengths and cross sections are shown in the table below: Cable length Cross-section ≤ 80m 0.40mm2 ≤ 100m 0.50mm2 ≤ 150m 0.75mm2 ≤ 200m 1.00mm2 ≤ 300m 1.50mm2 Permissible cable lengths to FW100 outside temperature Selecting the installation location sensor: Cable length Cross-section ≤ 20m 0.75mm2 – 1.50mm2 Commissioning ≤ 30m 1.00mm2 – 1.50mm2 Comprehensive installation and commissioning instructions ≥ 30m 1.50mm2 can be found within the installation and user instructions supplied with the units. To avoid inductive interference, lay all BUS cables separately to lines of 230V or 400V (minimum spacing 100mm). In case of external inductive interference, screened cables should be used. This ensures that the cables are shielded from external interference (e.g. heavy current cables, overhead wires, transformer stations, radio and television sets, amateur radio stations, microwave ovens etc). 21 ISM1 Intelligent Solar Module The ISM1 is a specially designed interface that integrates a solar heating system with a solar-compatible weather or load compensation unit such as the FW100 or FR110. Features and benefits • All solar control via FR110 or FW100 controller • Only one control to explain to end user • Displays solar performance on FR110 or FW100 • End user can check solar input • Clear colour coded plug-in connections • Installation ease • Solar optimisation • Maximum beneﬁt and efﬁciency from solar installation. The ISM1 enables the hot water system to take heat from Connection – low voltage section with BUS connection the solar panels when the sun is shining and then bring the Permissible cable length between the Heatronic 3 with boiler back on when there is not enough sunshine available. BUS capability and the ISM1: In this way, the user gets maximum beneﬁt from solar Cable length Cross-section ≤ 80m 0.40mm2 Another major beneﬁt of this arrangement is that the end ≤ 100m 0.50mm2 user only needs one controller to control both the solar and ≤ 150m 0.75mm2 boiler systems, making the system much easier to use.

The ISM1 is compatible with Greenstar CDi Classic System boilers providing the optional integral diverter valve is used and has the potential to reduce energy consumption by 15% compared to conventional systems. To avoid inductive interference, lay all BUS cables separately to lines of 230V or 400V (minimum spacing 100mm). Solar panel and cylinder sensors Dedicated sensors for both the solar panel and the hot water cylinder are supplied with ISM1.
