Frost Protection

The frost protection feature is developed to keep your building's structural integrity safe in case of decreasing temperatures.

The logic behind the Frost Protection is as follows:

  • If the Frost protection is enabled AND

  • If the Measured Temperature < Frost Protection Temperature Threshold, THEN

    • If the device is off, it turns on

    • Set-point is set to Frost Protection Set-Point

    • Device switches to heating (IF AVAILABLE as per the applications (wiring diagrams))

    • An icon is shown on the display

    • Frost protection status is reflected in the keep-alive.

To exit the mode, you can:

  • Either interact with the device's buttons (e.g. change target temp) OR

  • Send a downlink to change target temp, on/off, mode, fan speed.

  • If you exit the frost protection mode, but the measured temperature is below the Frost Protection Temperature Threshold, the function will reactivate and execute the protection steps again.

Frost protection ON/OFF status

You can change the frost protection ON/OFF status with the following command set.

Set the frost protection status.

Example command: 0x4E01 – Turn on the frost protection.

Frost protection set-point and threshold temperature

This command is used to set the frost protection set-point and threshold temperature values.

Set the frost protection set-point and threshold.

Example command: 0x500609 – Sets the threshold temperature to 6Β°C and the Set-point temperature to 9Β°C.

The allowed range is 0...20Β°C (1Β°C resolution).

Frost protection status

When the frost protection status changes, the command is sent together with the keepalive of the device. The keepalive data in the example below is omitted for clarity.

You can read the frost protection status with the command:

Example downlink: 0x6E01 – The frost protection running.
