GENERAL
SYSTEM SETUP AND OPERATION
Requirements and recommendations concerning field
supplied solar panels and solar pump station
General system setup
Solar panel
The solar kit is designed to transfer the heat from the solar panels to
the heat exchanger of the domestic hot water tank EKHW* and is to
be installed in the
system as shown in the
scheme below.
Appropriate selection is to be made by your solar panel supplier, in
accordance with local regulations.
Solar pump station
The solar pump station must meet following requirements:
Electrical connection
The solar pump station will have an auxiliary contact that closes
when the contact for the pump of the solar pump station is operated.
M
This contact will provide 230 V to the input of the indoor unit, and
prevent domestic water heating by the heat pump and/or booster
heater during solar heating.
For wiring examples, refer to the following drawings.

Refer to the indoor unit installation manual.
The solar panels (1) catch the heat of the sun. When the temperature
of the glycol solution in the solar panel has become higher than the
water temperature in the domestic hot water tank, the pump of the
solar pump station (2) and the pump of the solar kit (3) start to
operate as to transfer the heat to the heat exchanger of the domestic
hot water tank, unless priority is given to the heat pump. Refer to
"Operating instructions" on page 9 (subsection: Configuring your
system).

Settings
■
Anti-freeze setting
Some solar pump stations have an anti-freeze function. If the
solar panel temperature becomes too low, such solar pump
stations will circulate the solar fluid as to extract heat from the
tank and to avoid freezing of the solar fluid.
Maximum solar panel temperature
If the temperature of the solar panel is above this value, the
solar pump station will stop or not resume pump operation.
This setting will have a fixed value equal to or below 110°C, or
it will be possible to put this value equal to or below 110°C.
Make sure to disable this function.
Make sure the concentration of glycol in the solar panel
is big enough as to avoid freezing of the glycol at all
times.
Putting this value to a higher value can break down
the pump of the solar pump station.
Also refer to the eye-catcher caution label that was torn up when
unpacking the installation manual.
Limiting the maximum solar panel temperature to 110°C
however, can affect efficiency of the solar panel.
But on the other hand:
■ as it is important for reliability of the pump in the solar pump
station only that temperature of the return water to that solar
pump is lower than 110°C;
Hydraulic connection
Make sure the solar pump station has non-return valves as to avoid
thermosiphon effect (migration of hot water to cold places). If the
solar pump station has no hydraulic connections included, install
them in the field piping as shown in "General system setup" on
page 2.
■ and in case the 110°C limit for the return water temperature
to the solar pump can be guaranteed by other means than by
limiting the 'Maximum solar panel temperature';
ACCESSORIES
then the value of the 'Maximum solar panel temperature' can be
set to a higher temperature.
Accessories supplied with the solar kit
Please contact your local solar panel dealer.
■
ON/OFF/AUTO
1
If the solar pump station has an ON/OFF/AUTO function, make
sure to put it on the AUTO function. This means that the pump
will switch on automatically when the solar panel temperature
rises sufficiently above the domestic hot water tank temperature
and switch off automatically when the difference between the
solar panel and the domestic hot water tank temperature
becomes too low.

When the maximum temperature of the domestic hot water tank
is reached, the solar pump station will stop pump operation.
Do not put this value above 80°C (70°C for units installed with
the EKUHW* kit) to avoid overheating of the domestic hot water
tank and the activation of the booster heater thermal protector in
the domestic hot water tank.

Field wiring and earthing
Make sure the pump of the solar kit is connected to the domestic
hot water tank as shown in the wiring diagram and the pump
earth wires have been connected properly. The earth terminals
should be tightened.
OPERATING
■
Ensure that the auxiliary contact of the solar pump station is
connected to the indoor unit and will give 230 V to the input of
the indoor unit when closed.
In order to guarantee maximum energy savings combined with
maximum comfort, it is important to configure your system in a proper
way.
■
Ensure the power supply cable from the indoor unit is connected
to the domestic hot water tank.
For this reason, it is strongly recommended to do the following:
■
Mounting of sensors
Make sure the solar panel temperature sensor and the domestic
hot water temperature sensor of the solar pump station are
properly mounted.
Use of schedule timers
■
■ Maximum tank temperature: ≤80°C (70°C for units with an
EKUHW* kit)
■ Minimum temperature difference between domestic hot water
tank and solar panel before starting pump operation: ≥10°C
■
Configuring your system
■
Check the orientation of your solar panel, and find out during
what time of the day the intensity of the sun on it is expected to
be strong and weak. For example, a solar panel oriented to the
east will receive strong intensity during the morning, weak
intensity during the afternoon.
■
Check your usual pattern of peak domestic hot water
consumption. E.g. showering during the morning from 7 to 9
a.m. and again in the evening from 5 p.m. onwards.
■
Set the schedule timer for ‘domestic water heating’ and ‘booster
heating’ as to disable heating of the domestic water tank by the
indoor unit before solar radiation on the solar panel can become
intensive.
Verify that following settings are made on the solar pump station:
■ Maximum solar panel temperature: ≤110°C
Make sure a non-return valve is included in the solar pump
station or is installed in the connection line from the solar pump
station to the solar kit. Refer also to the general system set-up
(on page 2).
Absence of this valve will cause thermal losses and
could cause freezing of the plate heat exchanger.
Checklist for proper functioning
INSTRUCTIONS
On the other hand, enable 'domestic water heating' and/or
'booster heating' about 1 hour before you usually expect
domestic hot water consumption or during night time. In this way,
the indoor unit and/or booster heater will heat up the domestic
water tank and guarantee domestic hot water in the event there
has been no sun.
Following items should be checked to assure proper functioning:
■
When the temperature of the solar panel becomes 10°C higher
than the domestic hot water tank temperature, the pump of the
solar pump station and the pump of the solar kit will start
operation.(1)
■
When the temperature of the solar panel becomes lower than
the domestic hot water tank temperature, the pump of the solar
pump station and the pump of the solar kit will stop operation.
(1) Unless the domestic water heating mode is enabled, the solar priority parameter
= 1 and the heat pump is heating the domestic water tank at that moment.
Refer to "Configuring your system" on page 9 for more information.

Example
Your domestic hot water consumption pattern is from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the morning and from 5 p.m. till 11 p.m. in the evening.
Since the solar panel is oriented towards the south-east, the radiation can be intensive on the solar panel from 8 a.m to 6 p.m.

If the domestic hot water tank has not been heated enough by the
sun during the day, or a lot of warm water was consumed the evening
before, the domestic hot water tank must be heated up during the
night time by the indoor unit, so that in the morning domestic hot
water is available for consumption. For this reason, in the example
above, domestic water heating is enabled during the night, until
consumption of warm water is expected to start.

Setting of the solar priority parameter
Simultaneous water heating by the sun and water heating by the heat
pump is not possible.
By default, heating of the tank by the heat pump has priority over
heating by the sun.
In the morning, the domestic water heating/booster heating is
disabled. In this way, the domestic hot water tank is not reheated
after or during consumption of warm water and the sun will get the
chance to reheat the water as much as possible.
This means that, whenever there is a request of the domestic hot
water thermostat and domestic water heating is enabled (by the
schedule timer or domestic water heating ON/OFF button, refer to the
operation manual of the indoor unit), heating will be done by the heat
pump. In case solar heating is busy, solar heating will be stopped.
Since domestic hot water consumption is expected again from 5 p.m.
onwards, the domestic water heating and/or booster heating is
enabled again 1 hour before, from 4 p.m. onwards. This will
guarantee, in the case of absence of sun during the day, maximum
warm water capacity by 5 p.m.
This is to avoid shortage of domestic hot water in case the solar
radiation is very weak, or solar radiation only became high shortly
before domestic hot water demand is expected (e.g. on a cloudy
day).
NOTE
To set schedule timers, refer to the operation manual
of the indoor unit.
Setting of domestic hot water tank temperature
The domestic hot water tank has 2 temperature sensors.
The upper temperature sensor is the thermostat sensor of your
indoor unit. This temperature can be set on your indoor unit (refer to
the operation manual of the indoor unit). It is advised to set this
temperature as low as possible. Start with a low temperature, e.g.
48°C. If with this temperature you face shortage of warm water during
normal tapping patterns, increase gradually until you find the
temperature of warm water that covers your daily demand.
NOTE
In order to change this, put the field parameter [C-00] to 0. Refer to
the installation manual of the indoor unit, paragraph "Field settings"
to find out how to access and change field parameters. [C-00] put to
0 means solar priority, [C-01] put to 1 means heat pump priority.
NOTE
With above settings, the heating of the water by heat pump/booster
heater will be limited to the minimum required, and solar heat will be
stocked in the domestic hot water tank to the maximum.
Installation and operation manual
Be aware that setting this parameter to 0 might cause
insufficient warm water at the time of domestic hot
water demand during days with weak solar intensity.
If you are not sure about the availability of hot water,
check the domestic hot water temperature on the
controller (see operation manual of the indoor unit) and
if too low, push the 'booster domestic hot water' button.
This will trigger domestic water heating by the heat
pump immediately.
Refer to the operation manual of the indoor unit to
change the domestic hot water temperature setting.
The lower temperature sensor is the thermostat sensor of the solar
pump station. This temperature can be set on the solar pump station.
Put this temperature as high as possible but not higher than 80°C (or
70°C for units installed with the EKUHW* kit) as otherwise the
thermal protection in the tank might trip.
10
This default setting can be changed, so that at all times, when solar
heat becomes available, domestic water heating by the heat pump
will be (if busy) interrupted and taken over by the sun.
NOTE
The booster heater in the domestic hot water tank can
work independent from the solar heating or domestic
water heating by the heat pump.
For a detailed decision flow on domestic water heating
by solar kit or by heat pump, and/or booster heater,
refer to the annexes "Decision flow of heating the
domestic water by heat pump or by solar kit" on
page 12 and "Decision flow of heating the domestic
