Network Controllers (SC-NET only)

With the SmartCom Network version up to 16 controllers can be linked together to form a multi-zone heating system. This allows one SmartCom (the master) to communicate with the other controllers (the slaves). The master control has the following capabilities:
1.  Updating the clock on the master controller will globally update the slave controllers.
2.  The set program and set temperature functions on the slave controllers can be accessed from the master controller.
3.  The room and set temperatures of the slave controllers can be viewed from the master controller.
4.  & buttons on the master controller are applied to the entire network.
5.  External inputs to the master will apply to the entire network.
6.  LOCKOUTs on slave controllers will be displayed on the master controller and can then be cleared on each individual controller or from the master controller.

The following functions cannot be programmed over the network and must be carried out locally on each slave controller:
1.  Modes, i.e. HEAT ONLY, AUTO, etc.
2.  Engineer functions


Network Controllers

Setting up the network

First decide which SmartCom is to be the Master then set the following engineer functions:
C1 = 01
C2 = Number of SmartComs in the Network
Whilst setting up the network the master controller will display communication errors, these will clear once the network is complete. The slave controllers can now be programmed in turn.
C1 = SmartCom number
C2 = Number of SmartComs in the Network


Operating the master controller

Pressing the button on the master controller will display the sensor temperature and set temperature for the master zone (Zone 1) as well as the slave zones (Zone 2, 3, etc.) The first and second press of the button will display the sensor temperature and set temperature for Zone 1. The third and fourth press will display the sensor temperature and set temperature for Zone 2. Further presses will display all other zones. A slave controller will display temperatures for its zone only.

 Check Temp (Multi-zone)

When modifying the set program or set temperatures on the master controller in a multi-zone system, the display will show the [ZONE] icon along with the flashing zone number. Press the or buttons to display the appropriate zone you want to program. Press the  button to accept. The program and temperatures can now be set for that zone.

Back to top


Checking the temperature

Press the  button. This will display the sensor temperature on the first press and the set temperature on the second press. The third press will return the display to normal. The display will return to normal 10 seconds after the second press if the  button is not pressed a third time.

Pressing the  button and the button together will display the duct temperature. The display will return to normal after 10 seconds if not cancelled by pressing the  button.

Battery Type & replacement

The real-time clock and program information is battery backed by a lithium coin cell. When mains power is interrupted, the clock, backed by the battery, will operate normally for seven days after which it will stop. The battery will continue to back up the program information.

The battery has a service life of approximately five years. The condition of the battery is monitored and when replacement becomes necessary, this will be indicated on the display. Replacement will be indicated on the display only if mains supply is present.

To replace the battery, isolate the control from the mains electric supply and remove the plugs/screws securing the front panel to the rear case. Carefully remove the panel and detach the ribbon cable from the power PCB assembly. Remove the old battery and fit the new battery as shown in the photograph.


Optimum Start

This feature is factory set. If not required, refer to the Engineer Functions.
Optimum start is an energy saving feature which turns the heating system on at the latest possible time, whilst ensuring that the desired temperature is achieved at the ON time. When the controller is optimising both the ON and OFF icons are displayed.
Ventilation remains disabled during the optimum start period.
