This European Standard applies to electronic control equipment for heating systems with direct electrical emission, which have an integrated outside compensated function and or optimum start/stop function.
This control equipment controls the distribution and/or the generation of heat in relation to the outside temperature and time and other reference variables.
This European Standard also covers controllers that contain an integrated optimum start or an optimum start-stop control function. The controller modulates heating or control modes of electronic individual zone or emitter control equipment.
Safety requirements on heating systems remain unaffected by this standard. The dynamic behaviour of the local thermostats, sensors, or actuators is not covered in this standard.
A multi-distribution and/or multi-generation system needs a coordinated solution to prevent undesired interaction and is not part of this standard.
Table 1 shows the relative position of this standard within the set of EPB standards in the context of the modular structure as set out in prEN ISO 52000 1.
NOTE 1 – In prCEN ISO/TR 52000 2 the same table can be found, with, for each module, the numbers of the relevant EPB standards and accompanying technical reports that are published or in preparation.
NOTE 2 – The modules represent EPB standards, although one EPB standard may cover more than one module and one module may be covered by more than one EPB standard, for instance a simplified and a detailed method respectively.
