Benchmark places responsibilities on both manufacturers and installers. The purpose is to ensure that customers are provided with the correct equipment for their needs, that it is installed, commissioned and serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions by competent persons and that it meets the requirements of the appropriate Building Regulations. The Benchmark

Checklist can be used to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations and should be provided to the customer for future reference.

Installers are required to carry out installation, commissioning and servicing work in accordance with the Benchmark Code of Practice which is available from the Heating and Hot water Industry Council who manage and promote the Scheme.

General

The outdoor sensor enables weather compensation by providing an advanced level of modulation, achieving an additional level of efficiency. This control compensates for the outside temperature by modulating the lower radiator temperatures in warmer weather and higher radiator temperatures in colder weather.

The outdoor temperature compensation is easily configured using either the boilers interface controls or the interface of an external Glow-worm Climastat or Climapro room control (if fitted). Optimum comfort and efficiency is achieved when used in conjunction with a Climastat or Climapro

(in modulating mode). The outdoor sensor can also be used with a conventional on/off thermostat.

WARNING:

Isolate the boiler from the electrical supply. A competant person should make the electrical connections.

Use a cable that complies with the specifications given in Technical data, page

7. Route the cable from the outdoor sensor to the boiler electrical cartridge at the boiler, refer to the literature supplied with your boiler for location and access.

Refer to diagram 5, thread the cable through the electrical sealing gland. Connect the cable to the electrical connection, polarity is not important. Fit the sealing gland, this secures the cable and gives a water tight seal. Connect the cable to OTC1 and OTC2 connection in the electrical cartridge at the boiler, polarity is not important, refer to diagram 6.

Note:

Ultracom hxi & Flexicom hx open vent system models only. The edge connector will need to be fitted, see diagram 7.

(B) Configuring the Outdoor Sensor

A gradient must be chosen from the range shown on page 17, labelled 0-9.

The decision as to which heating curve should be used is based on two factors:

1.

The average minimum outside temperature of the region.

2.

The maximum temperature which the heating appliance can provide.

NOTE:

Consider the level of heat loss in comparison to typical UK heat loss e.g.

(double glazing, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation).

Method with example.

The following example describes the process. The temperatures quoted should be substituted with real values to find the required heating curve.

1.

Select the average minimum outdoor temperature expected in your region where the sensor will be installed. For example at the peak of winter the temperature may drop to -5°C. This would be the value selected from the Outdoor temperature °C axis.

2.

Select the maximum output temperature of the heating appliance from the Heating flow temperature (°C) axis. For example this could be 82°C.

www.glow-worm.co.uk

(B) Configuring the Outdoor Sensor

Plot these two points onto the chart.They intersect the gradient curve labelled 6. The value 6 would be entered into the boiler via the diagnostic menu d.45.

Refer to the following diagrams and text to do this.

(B) Configuring the Outdoor Sensor

By default the outdoor sensor aims to provide a room ambient temperature of 20°C. In some situations it may be necessary to have a lower or higher ambient room temperature the adjustment is made in terms of an offset value, which is entered into the appliance via diagnostic menu

‘d.46’

. Refer to the following diagrams and text to do this.

(B) Configuring the Outdoor Sensor

For example:

10°C = offset -10

20°C = offset 0

30°C = offset 10

If extra heating comfort is required, the room temperature setpoint can be increased via diagnostic menu d.46. D.46 provides a means to offset from the default 20°C room set point. For example to increase the target room temperature to 22°C set d.46 to the value 2.

Range of value d.46: -10 to 10. www.glow-worm.co.uk

(C) Configuring the Outdoor Sensor with external

Glow-worm Climapro or Climastat controls

A gradient must be chosen from the range shown on page 17, labelled 0.2-4.

The decision as to which heating curve should be used is based on two factors:

1.

The average minimum outside temperature of the region.

2.

The maximum temperature which the heating appliance can provide.

NOTE:

Consider the level of heat loss in comparison to typical UK heat loss e.g.

(double glazing, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation).

Method with example

.

The following example describes the process. The temperatures quoted should be substituted with real values to find the required heating curve.

1.

2.

Select the maximum output temperature of the heating appliance from the Heating flow temperature (°C) axis. For example this could be 82°C.

3.

Plot these two points onto the chart.They intersect the heating curve labelled 2.5. The value 6 would be entered into the boiler via the diagnostic menu d.45.

(C) Configuring the Outdoor Sensor with external

Glow-worm Climapro or Climastat controls

Making Adjustment on Climastat

Refer to your Climastat instructions, section

6 Commissioning. The heating curve is adjusted via Menu 2. Acess to this menu is achieved by following the steps stated in

Adjustments.

Making Adjustment on

Climapro/ Climapro RF

Refer to your Climapro/Climapro RF

Commissioning Instructions. The heating curve is adjusted via menu COMP which is accessible by procedure stated in the table in the Commissioning section.

22

Adjusting Room Ambient

With the heating curve correctly setup for your specific region, the room temperature can be adjusted. This is achieved by increasing or decreasing the setpoint temperature of your Climastat or Climapro/

Climapro RF roomstat.

For systems with a Glow-worm Climapro.

To adjust the room ambient set point temperature, refer to sections, Setting the

“Comfort” temperature or Central heating temporary override - central heating of the

Climapro instructions for use, installation and servicing literature.

For systems with a Glow-worm Climastat.

To adjust the room ambient set point temperature, refer to section 2 instructions for use of the Climapro instructions for use, installation and servicing literature.
