The High Load Switch with Thermostat Functions brings incredible capabilities to any connected device. It makes electric outlets and whole banks of lights ‘smart’ with full remote monitoring, control, and advanced programmability. You can now enable Internet-connected thermostat functions where a local display and controls are not needed, such as with roof or driveway de-icing systems, etc. This brings the convenience of smartphone app control and programmability to ‘dumb’ devices such as electrical outlets & panels, electric water heaters, radiators, fireplaces, and radiant floor or de-icing systems.
At 26mm in depth, the High Load Switch is also impossibly small, fitting into any rectangular, round or square electrical junction box, even behind an attached device.
You can connect an NTC temperature sensor to monitor ambient or radiant floor/roof system temperatures. This sensor can be installed on the wall, under floorboards, on the roof, or under decking, allowing you to accurately measure surface temperatures. The HELTUN High Load Switch is fully compatible with NTC sensors from other manufacturers, so there is no need to replace an existing sensor when installing it.
You can also control the High Load Switch by connecting it to an external system - like an alarm system - using a pilot wire which could be programmed to automatically reduce the temperature when the house is empty or turn on electric outlets/lights when people come home.
The HELTUN built-in Power Consumption System precisely monitors how much energy has passed through your High Load Switch during any particular day, week, or month. With the High Load Switch, you can determine how much energy is used by major appliances, entertainment systems, computers, small appliances, or entire lighting systems.
We have also designed the circuitry so it draws almost zero watts to power itself when in standby mode. This saves you energy and money even if your home is equipped with many HELTUN products.
Even though the High Load Switch does not have a display or buttons, all of its thermostat functions can be accessed through a Z-Wave controller. Here are the available thermostat modes.
COM (comfort), ECO (energy-saving), and VAC (vacation) modes maintain the temperature you specified using the Z-Wave controller.
DRY mode switches to a rapid heating mode at a higher temperature to dry floors after washing. DRY mode reverts back to the previous mode after the specified time.
MAN (manual) mode allows you to override any current mode or schedule and turn the heat ON or OFF manually using your controller interface.
You can reduce your power bill and help the environment just by using TIME mode through your Z-Wave controller. Adjust your home comfort level according to your family’s habits by reducing the temperature while everyone is away, and by boosting it for evenings and early mornings.
People spend about 12-14 hours a day at home on average. The rest of the time an empty house needs minimal heating. And considering that much of the time at home your family is sleeping, it can make a huge difference setting your home’s comfort level to 18°C overnight which is considered to be the optimal sleeping temperature.
The High Load Switch can be connected to products other than ones that are thermostatically-controlled, such as electric panels, outlets, and banks of lights. Time Mode provides an extremely powerful ability to schedule ON and OFF cycles for groups of connected devices. Here are just a few ways Time Mode can add convenience, comfort, safety, and savings to your home:
And just as with the High Load Switch thermostat functions, through a controller you can assign attached devices to be ON or OFF during Morning, Day, Evening, or Night periods. This can make it easy to turn OFF outlets connected to game consoles at night or schedule all outdoor lights for evening turn-ON and morning turn-OFF. The possibilities are limited only by the creativity of the user of the High Load Switch.
There are eight different modes that can be selected for the High Load Switch using a pilot wire to another device (e.g. alarm panel, wall switch):
Invert State - If ON, turn OFF when circuit is closed (or if OFF, switch ON).
Momentary - Switch ON when pilot wire circuit is closed, switch OFF when opened.
Momentary Reversed - Switch OFF when pilot wire circuit is opened, switch ON when closed.
Switch ON Only - When the pilot wire circuit is closed (i.e. short-circuited).
Switch OFF Only - When the pilot wire circuit is closed (i.e. short-circuited).
Switch to Mode - Switch to specific thermostat mode (pre-configured in parameter menu).
The High Load Switch relay output can also be controlled by an internal timer. For example, after the switch is turned ON, it can be configured to automatically switch OFF a specified time later (or vice-versa: turn ON after being turned OFF).
Timer (ON then OFF) - Switch ON when pilot wire circuit is closed, then Switch OFF after specified time.
Timer (OFF then ON) - Switch OFF when pilot wire circuit is closed, then Switch ON after specified time.
Since the HELTUN High Load Switch can handle up to 16 Amp loads, it is a perfect addition to your circuit breaker panel for monitoring and controlling groups of devices from the Internet through a Z-Wave gateway, such as:
The Micromodule Mounting Adaptor is available from HELTUN as an accessory for the High Load Switch to fit standard DIN rails (50mm width), or it can also be mounted directly on the wall using the supplied screws & anchors.
There are a number of ways that the High Load Switch can add to the safety of your home.
Users can define the high load, time, and temperature shutoff limits and notification settings in the High Load Switch parameters using a Z-Wave controller.
The HELTUN High Load Switch can be easily installed into any standard electrical junction box (rectangular, square, or round) in just minutes. Installation must only be performed by someone trained in handling high voltage electrical systems.
You can connect HELTUN devices to a Smart Home controller using the latest Z-Wave Plus V2 700 platform. HELTUN features advanced Smart Start technology for easy system integration, and the Security 2 (S2) framework with AES 256 encryption for safe data transfer.
This High Load Switch is compatible with all Z-Wave certified controllers and devices that properly implement Z-Wave switch and thermostat classes. Using a Z-Wave controller, you can manage all switch functions via a mobile app including temperature & mode changes, viewing energy consumption charts, and much more.
You can associate HELTUN High Load Switch with any Z-Wave compatible ON/OFF switch, or other Switch, to control different climate systems in a room. You can even connect motion sensors and change High Load Switch modes when people are detected in the house.
HELTUN devices are compatible with all Z-Wave frequencies for different countries (Europe, Russia, Israel, Australia, USA, India, Hong Kong, China, Japan, and Korea). The full list of Z-Wave regions and frequencies is available at Z-Wave Global Regions SiLabs page.
HELTUN periodically releases new device firmware with added features which can be remotely updated via an encrypted OTA (Over-The-Air) process.
