Warmworld Intelligent Heating & Smart Control Dataterm can keep you snug & knock a whole 25% off your heating bill. Wireless Option Now Available! Be Part of It! September 2013 Product Brochure Dataterm IHC A Millennium Product Control up to 4 Channels & HW. Dataterm, a totally new type of central heating controller, How does Dataterm save you money and make life more comfortable? Dataterm gives you amazingly flexible control over your central heating system and saves money into the bargain. To start with Dataterm takes all the guess work out of heating control. Dataterm is designed to use only the exact amount of heating fuel you need for your comfort with no waste. This means real economies can be made - benefiting both your pocket and the environment. No matter how erratic the weather is, with Dataterm you don't have to guess how long your home will take to warm up in the morning. Just tell Dataterm the time you get up and the temperature you want (this can be a different time and temperature each day of the week). The house will reach the exact temperature at the right time. Not a degree higher or lower. Independent tests show that Dataterm can give average savings of 25% (18-36%) compared to conventional controllers. Dataterm’s computer memory works it all out for you. In the past, central heating control systems relied on some version of a basic room thermostat and time clock to respond to varying heating needs. But technology has moved on since then. Now, using modern cutting edge technology, Dataterm gives you more flexible and economical heating control than you would ever have thought possible. ! As the weather changes Dataterm decides what time it needs to switch on, this is done without the need for external sensors. This is called Optimum Start. It is one of Dataterm’s major energy saving features, saving fuel and money even before you wake up. The Department of the Environment Transport and the Regions” formerly the DoE says, “Optimum Start can reduce fuel consumption by as much as 15%” We guarantee 25% off your heating bills* * Independent tests show that Dataterm gives fuel savings of 25-35% when its capability is used to the full compared with systems previously fitted with conventional programmers. Dataterm uses modes to ensure you get the right mix of savings and comfort! Modes put you in control of the right mix of comfort and energy savings based on your needs and responsiveness of the heating system. Comfort Mode If you have a large home or an old heating system that needs to be on for a while before your comfortable then the Comfort Mode might be the one you choose, this is the mode best suited to under floor heating as this type of heating has a slow response time. Economy Mode On the other hand you could live in a modern well insulated home where things warm up quickly so the Economy Mode would be more suitable, this is the default mode that all Dataterm systems are factory set. Normal Mode If you want a mix of comfort and energy savings then this mode is the one to go for but do try economy first, you might be surprised. The different modes are based on the maximum allowed pre-heat time given to each set-point in order to achieve the required temperature. This is based on a Maximum pre-heat window of 5 hours down to the minimum 1 hour so you will always have an element of comfort and energy savings. All the reports point to the same thing, energy savings... “Unless you try it you’ll never know.” My old programmer allows me to boost the heating! Active Boost The Dataterm has a clever way of temporarily boosting the heating outside of your heating plan so that you get warm but don't waste fuel doing so. Simply pressing and holding the plus button will give you a 1 hour boost, press again and its 2 hours, again and its 3 hours. You then set the desired temperature and after the boost period it reverts back to where it should be so no more leaving the heating on when you go out! This is a great feature if you unexpectedly come home from work or shopping and want the heating on just enough to take the chill off. As soon as the set temperature is reached or boost period ends the heating goes off. Summer Winter Time The clock adjusts itself at that time of year so you know the heating will be on time whatever the weather. Holiday Plans Enter your holiday dates and Dataterm will make sure you save fuel when your away and come back to a nice warm home. Flexible Programming With 11 pre-set plans and room for 12 personalised plans Dataterm is flexible enough to suit the harshest of lifestyles or multi use buildings. Multiple Zones Dataterm can control up to 4 heating zones and hot water from a single control pad so no matter how large the building we have it covered What else can Dataterm do to help save fuel and money? Dataterm allows you to turn the temperature down a degree or two without any loss in room comfort. To understand how Dataterm can do this and yet not make your room feel cooler we have to look at how an ordinary, old fashioned thermostat works. My old programmer goes on and off twice a day! Dataterm has 8 time and temperature setpoints per day allowing for much more than your average room thermostat and time clock. Timing control like this is so flexible that it will suit even the most demanding of lifestyles. No matter when you come and go, Dataterm is in the background tending to your heating needs. If you are comfortable at 19°C and an ordinary room thermostat is fitted it may not turn off until it peaks at 20 or 21°C due to inaccuracies and drop to 17 or 18°C before the boiler comes back on. This is wasteful and costs YOU money, it also makes you uncomfortable as the heat in the system goes on rising for a little longer, making the room hotter than necessary. Then as the room cools down past your thermostat setting, the boiler will fire again. For example, if you are active at home in the mornings, rushing around getting the children ready for school then you may be more comfortable asking for a lower temperature unlike in the evening when you relax or just sit down to enjoy your evening meal. Whatever you require with Dataterm you can achieve it. If at any time you want to raise or lower the temperature it couldn't be easier, simply press the plus or minus buttons. Don't worry about remembering to change it back because Dataterm will at the next set-point. What about hot water? The temperature keeps falling making it less comfortable than you would like until the boilers heat has worked its way back to the radiators. Another one of Dataterm’s many benefits, fully programmable hot water with up to 4 on and off settings per day and each day can be different too. To allow for these wide swings in temperature levels we usually keep the thermostat at a degree or two higher than necessary, wasting heat and money. In addition there is a 1 hour boost button so you need never be without hot water. The Department of the Environment Transport and the Regions” formerly the DoE says, “Fuel bills can be cut by 6-10% for every 1°C reduction in temperature.” Frost protection Even when you are away! Is Dataterm easy to install? Although Dataterm does not turn off completely, should there be an unexpected cold spell it will respond without any further intervention. Yes, Dataterm is very easy to install, it is well documented and all parts are clearly labelled, a novice DIY enthusiast or professional tradesman should find the installation trouble free if the instructions are carefully followed. Dataterm’s wireless option makes installation very easy as the majority of wiring is reduced. Even when your away, a minimum background temperature will be available just by setting one of the in-built holiday plans. These are based on lower temperatures high enough to combat frost and condensation. You can even enter your holiday dates and Dataterm will turn back on once you return! “It is less costly to maintain a low level of heating when a house is empty than to switch off completely and then reheat from cold”.

Lounge Dining Room Dataterm IHC Sensor 1 Wiring Centre HW Boiler The illustration on the left shows a typical setup for a 2 Zone system controlling upstairs & downstairs separately with different time and temperature set-points to suit the usage pattern of the property. DATATERM IHC Technical Specification Dataterm IHC is a microprocessor based intelligent heating control system researched and developed to provide correct temperature management with minimised fuel burn. It replaces traditional wasteful room thermostats and programmers thus reducing harmful emmisions. Dataterm is self learning and fully automatic, it uses state of the art “fuzzy logic” techniques to achieve exceptionally close temperature control. Functions OPTIMUM START/STOP This eliminates fixed start time for boiler firing. Instead, a start time is calculated to take into account prevailing weather conditions, preventing fuel waste. Dataterm optimizes off by allowing temperature to fall 1°C just before a set reduction. COMPENSATING FOR WEATHER CHANGE This eliminates the external sensor process, which cannot allow for wind chill factor. Dataterm monitors & memorizes speed of temperature response in a building when heating is switched on and off. This data is used in a self-educating process which produces stable chosen temperatures by adapting switching patterns to fluctuating thermal conditions. 11 BUILT-IN LIFESTYLE PLANS Choice of ready-made central heating and hot water programes, suitable for varying occupancy needs, all ready to go. 12 PERSONAL PLANS Each can be custom-designed to suit the user’s lifestyle. Every day of the week, eight time and temperature set points can be programmed with a desired temperature, or left unused. All personal plans remain in memory, with manual override always available. HELP FUNCTION A single Help key provides context-sensitive online help messages via the display screen. HOT WATER CONTROL Choice of any-time, any day, 4 on’s & 4 off’s per day, with cancellable one-hour boost at any time . BOILER CYCLING PREVENTION Dry cycling of boiler is eliminated, being under overall control of the system. FROST PROTECTION Dataterm will always monitor falling temperature and fire the boiler safely in time. ADDITIONAL FEATURES Celsius or Fahrenheit display, Wireless Sensors, Holiday Mode, Fuel Monitoring, Active Boost, Modes, & Inbuilt Test Feature and a crisp back lit display.

External communications Dataterm IHC has an external communications interface that will enable the end user to access special features showing the profile achieved over the past six days. This is a useful way of identifying faults on the system, simply study the down loaded graph to see what temperatures have been achieved and at what time. (USB) DATATERM Multizone Technical Specification Larger homes or work places usually have larger heating bills and with Part “L” of the building regulations and other legislation calling for zoning and better control Dataterm is highly suited for the larger building as well as the modest home alike! With control of up to 4 heating zones and hot water all from one easy to use keypad Dataterm is the obvious choice for maximum fuel savings. By controlling different zones separately you can control the heating in different areas at different times and temperatures dependant on usage saving £’s per annum and reducing the amount of harmful emissions you produce. Remember our multi-zone package allows you to control up to 4 heating zones and hot water, this could be ground floor and upper floors, front and back of the home or different rooms in churches or offices, the possibilities are vast. Optimum Start / Stop Each heating zone has the same characteristics of a single Dataterm system allowing for all the benefits of Optimum Start / Stop for each zone and set-point. So instead of the whole building warming up at the same time you might find that due to usage it warms up at different times and rates to achieve its main goal, affordable warmth and energy savings. Close Temperature Control Each zone has the ability to gently control the heat so that you maintain your comfort zone thus eliminating huge swings in temperature that increase fuel bills and leave you feeling uncomfortable. Summer / Winter Time Dataterm automatically changes its clock to allow for summer and winter time changes so that’s one less thing for you to worry about. Holiday Planning Setting your departure and arrival dates will allow your heating to turn off whilst you are away then be back on for your return so its nice and snug when you return to the Sunny UK! Flexible Programming Simply set the times and temperatures you require, Dataterm has the ability for up to 8 setpoints per day and each day of the week can be different! The same applies for the Hot Water too...
