of the ON/OFF button and switches from the OFF
mode to the Standby mode.
To do so it is necessary to press the ON/OFF
button for 1 second. A short Beep will be heard.
When in standby, “0” is displayed on the display of
the cooking zone.
This display may go into background due to a
residual heat or error signal.
If a cooking zone is activated during the standby
time (10 sec.), the control switches over to the On
mode. If no introduction is made within the 10 sec.,
the control automatically switches to OFF with a
short beep.
The electronics can be switched to the OFF mode
at any time during the ON mode or the Standby
mode by pressing the ON/ OFF button. The Off
function has priority when operating, meaning that
the control switches off even by activating several
buttons at the same time.
Operating principle
This is based on the electromagnetic properties of
most cooking containers.
The electronic circuit governs the operation of the
coil (inductor), creating a magnetic field.
The heat is transmitted by the container to the food.
Te cooking process takes place as follows:
• minimum dispersion (high performance);
• the removal of the pan (simply lifting it)
automatically stops the system;
• the electronic system allows maximum
flexibility and precision of regulation.
All installation operations (electrical connection)
must be carried out by people qualified in
compliance with the laws in force.
For specific instructions, see the installation
Important: This apparatus is not suitable for use
by person (children included) with reduced mental
and physical capacity or with lack of experience
and knowledge unless having previously received
suitable training fot its use by persons responsable
for their safety.
It must be ensured that children do not play with
the apparatus.

zone power that is significantly greater than the
rated output.
The booster allows a particularly rapid heating of
the food thereby saving the user time.
The Booster function can be activated pressing the
“P” (power booster) button:
The power is increased from 2400 to 3000 W.
For safety reasons the Booster function can only be
activated for a limited duration of 10 minutes.
If the pan is removed from the cooking zone during
the Booster time, the Booster function remains on
and also the Booster time is not deactivated.
Switching off a cooking zone
a) Pressing the “+” and “-” buttons of the desired
cooking zone at the same time.
b) Selecting cooking level “0” of the desired
cooking zone with the “-” button.
If the last cooking zone is switched off, the control
switches to the OFF mode after 10 sec. if nothing
else is switched on.
All cooking zones are switched off immediately by
pressing the ON/OFF button.
- If there is even the tiniest crack in the ceramic
glass surface, immediately disconnect the hob
from the electricity supply.
- During operation, move any magnetic materials
such as credit cards, computer disks, calculators,
etc., away from the area.
- Never use cooking foil or rest products wrapped
in foil directly on the hob.
- Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons
and lids must not be rested on the surface of the
hob to prevent them from heating up.
- When cooking with non-stick containers,
without using water or oil, limit any preheating
time to one or two minutes.
- When cooking foods which tend to stick to the
bottom of the pan, start at minimum power and
gradually increase the heat, stirring frequently.
- After use, switch off correctly (decreasing to
“0”) and avoid relying on the pan sensor.
Cooking and power levels
The cooking and power levels of the cooking zones
are shown on the display with 7 allotted segments.
In accordance with standards, the power levels are
displayed with numbers from “1” to “9”.
Residual heat indicator
Indicates to the user that the glass is at a dangerous
temperature if in contact with the area over the
cooking zone. The temperature is determined by
means of a mathematical model and possible
residual heat is indicated by “H” on the
corresponding 7 segment display.
Heating and cooling are calculated based on:
- The selected power level (from “0” to “9”);
- The relay activation time after the cooking zone
has been switched off.
The corresponding display shows “H” until the
zone temperature drops below the critical level (<
60 °C) according to the mathematical model.
Control panel lock
Activation and deactivation Pressing the keylock button in standby or active mode locks the
keypad and the key-lock LED will light. You can
only turn the power totally off with the On/Off
