4.2. Digital channel
Digital channels can only be activated or deactivated.
There is a difference between softkeys and indicators.
Softkeys
Indicators
Softkeys:
Softkeys are digital channels which can be activated or
deactivated. To activate a softkey, it is necessary to tap on it.
When the softkey is active, it is displayed in green.
Remark
If only one half of a softkey is displayed in green after it
has been tapped on, the preconditions to activate this
softkey are missing. The softkey is selected and activated
as soon as possible.
For example, deep dehumidity can only be activated if
the indicator Dewp. <7°C is active.
Indicators: Indicators are only displayed and cannot be changed. When an
indicator is active, it is displayed in green.
Remark
If only one half of an indicator is displayed in green, the
precondition to activate this indicator is missing.
For example, the Humidity can only be activated if the
temperature is < 95°C.
To display further channels, swipe your finger upwards or downwards on
the display.
The digital channels can only be changed temporarily in the program mode.
When the next line of code is reached in the program, the softkeys are
overwritten again with the default settings from the program.

25
4.4. Program mode
4.4.1. Important remarks on program creation
First line of code
A defined start value consisting of the temperature / humidity should always
be entered as the first line of code.
In the first line of code, the runtime is always t=0 which cannot be changed.
This ensures that the control system does not adopt the final value of the
last testing.
Non-linear temperature / humidity change
If a linear temperature / humidity change is not necessary it is a good idea to
program it as a jump (i.e. temperature / humidity change at time t = 0).
When a jump is programmed, the temperature and/or humidity is changed
at maximum speed.
However, because the change cannot take place at any unlimited speed, the
'wait' function should be used in this case. It ensures that a requested
temperature / humidity level is maintained.
Linear temperature / humidity change
Check whether the maximum speed of the temperature change is exceeded
during programming (see “Technical performance data“).
If the temperature and humidity are programmed simultaneously with a
linear change, only a smaller rate of change can be reached. Check whether
a simultaneous linear change of both parameters is necessary.
If you want to regulate the temperature / humidity close to their limits, the
test program cannot be run in exactly the idealized, programmed way.
The closer two temperature / humidity values are to these limits, the slower
the actual course approximates the set course of the curve.
Here again the 'wait' function ensures that the level to be reached is
maintained.
26
Humidity control
The humidity can only be controlled within a determined temperature range
(see "Technical performance data"). If this determined temperature range is
exceeded during programming, humidity is only regulated until this
temperature limit is reached. When changing from a temperature at which
climate control is not possible to another within the climate range, the
humidity is controlled from the time the temperature enters the climate
range.
Remark
If the set or the actual value of the temperature exceeds
or falls below the temperature range for climate
operation, the humidity control is deactivated. Any
predefined humidity set value is ignored. However, the
actual value for humidity is uncontrolled, because relative
humidity exists at any temperature.
27
4.4.2. Test program components (program cycle)
Test program
The test program consists of any number (1-200) of successive lines of code.
With the help of the CTS touch screen control panel, test programs can be
created and up to 99 different programs saved. The program defines the
exact flow of the test cycle. The development of a test program is described
in Chapter 4.4 .
Temperature/ humidity couple
A temperature/ humidity couple consists of a set value for the temperature
and a set value for the relative humidity (relative humidity for C devices
only).
These values form the “corner points” of the test program.
Line of code
One such line comprises a temperature / humidity couple, a determined
runtime, an optional 'wait' function and, also optionally, the switching
on/off of additional functions.
An active line of code always includes a temperature / humidity couple with
the corresponding runtime.
A passive line of code includes a beginning/end of a loop or the “wait”
function. Unlike an active line of code, a passive one does not contain a
runtime (t=0).
Runtime
This determines how long a temperature / humidity couple remains
constant or the time in which another temperature / humidity couple is to
be reached.
Loop
A loop is suitable for a simplified programming of repetitive program
sections. The beginning / end of a loop always requires a whole (passive)
line of code.
Additional functions
The device is provided with various additional functions depending on the
device type and the customer's desires.
The first 24 functions can be programmed via the CTS control panel.
It is possible to activate/deactivate various additional functions in one line
of code. If, however, a function is to remain active over multiple lines of
code, it must be re-entered in every line.
