Combining the latest programmable digital timer with an elegant design that fits any room, the new DEVIreg Opti electronic thermostat by DEVI provides precise control of electric floor heating for optimum comfort and energy consumption. Fast to set up and simple to operate, this high efficiency control comes with pre-programmed settings that will suit most users’ needs but which can be easily adjusted by the installer if required. As a further benefit, just like the other members of the DEVIreg TM family the new Opti electronic thermostat fulfills the exacting energy efficiency and environmental requirements of the Ecodesign Directive.
The DEVIreg Opti electronic thermostat for electric floor heating is packed with practical and innovative features to boost system efficiency and make life easier for installers and their customers. The 3-in-1 design means Opti can be supplied with a floor sensor, room sensor or a combination of both. Energy saving functionality includes an open window detection and indication function, together with low standby consumption, helping to reduce heating costs for homeowners without compromising comfort. In addition, Opti incorporates PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) regulation, which assists in maintaining constant power to the device, as well as battery back-up.
To ensure the electric floor heating reaches the desired temperature at the correct time, Opti allows individual programming of the system for two periods per day (5 + 2 or 7 days). To save installation time Opti is pre-programmed from the factory, so installers only have to set time and weekday to get started - any changes to time and temperature can be made in the installer menu. The easy-to-read digital display shows set point temperature (when operated) and actual room temperature. Additionally, the new Opti thermostat has a maximum and minimum floor temperature range from 5 – 35 degrees C (45 degrees C with break out).
Danfoss Marketing Manager, Gareth Ash, says the new Opti is a great addition to the DEVIreg range of electronic thermostats, offering a solution to suit different installation requirements, lifestyles and budgets. He comments: “Combining optimum heating efficiency with economy and style, Opti complements our DEVIreg Touch, featuring intuitive touch-screen operation, and the DEVIreg Smart, which allows users to adjust their electric floor heating via a dedicated App on their smartphone.”
