WAREMA Climatronic© Building Control Automation System

Overview

Climatronic is a feature rich control automation system suitable for homes and buildings small and large that measures climate information and operates products intelligently to achieve interior comfort and energy efficiency.

Climatronic uses a Bus protocol meaning that communication within the system uses data rather than simple current switching. All components are addressable with the advantages that wiring is simplified and reconfiguration or expansion of the system is possible at any time.

Principle components are a control screen, a series of actuators and a weather station. The actuators are either surface mounted or installed in a switchboard and for wiring convenience are available in modules of 4 or 6 sets of outputs. The control automation program is designed to operate an extensive range of products and can be adapted to many different control requirements.

Warema is a manufacturer of sunshading products and their control automation systems established in 1955. Many years of experience and thermal understanding of buildings therefore form the starting point for the program. Additionally however lighting, ventilation and many other devices can be intelligently controlled and integrated into a total energy saving and comfort concept.

Scenes can be formed, families of products can be freely assembled into switching groups and automatic programs can run whilst preserving customizable local overrides. The system can be used as a complete home automation system or can work in conjunction with other such systems providing a higher level control to sunshading and ventilation devices.

General System Properties

PropertyDescriptionStandard
Channel Quantity
(64 Channels)
A channel is a group of products that operate according to the same automatic function(s). Example roller blinds north façade all drop at the same sun level. It is a separate concept to wall switches and not to be confused with the number of wall switched groups that are possible. In the example used all roller blinds on the north facade could have individual wall switches and be separately operable, but a sun command will operate them as a group. 64
Max number of motors
(1200 motors)
The number of motors or appliances that can be connected to the system. If number is exceeded use more than one system. 1200
Low level interface to home automation or building management system The ability to transmit, receive or exchange simple analogue commands with the principle building management system via voltage free contacts.  
Fault code export The ability to export a fault code to an external BMS system  
Freely assemble local wall switching groups Any arrangement of groups of blinds or individual blinds can be operated by local wall switch independently of channels.  
Remote Control receiver in the central unit. The channels (see above) can be operated from a wall mounted or handheld Warema transmitter.  
Remote control receiver in the field In the field handheld or wall mounted radio transmitting (non-wired) switches, operating freely assemble groups of products.
