The Xcrono is a multi-zones chronothermostat which also includes specific domotic functions for the management of the lights, irrigation, sunshades and other daily/weekly home automation tasks.
Xcrono has been planned to work in ambients with several rooms to be climate controlled so it can work in buildings, offices, shops, B&B and hotels.
Xcrono features a central unit with 4.3-inch, 480x272 color display. The central unit , 'the brain', is placed on the wall and allows you to see, set and edit the system parameters. The HXSP small extension units, which are linked to the brain, monitor the indoor temperature of each zone and switch on/off the heating/cooling units.
The connection between the brain and the HXSP extension unit(s) is very simple and unexpensive as it only requires a 3 core cable which should not be shielded.
The Xcrono can be fully customized (i.e. number of the room , room name etc.) using the Xcrono Lab software. This software allows the unit to be configured according to the system requirements.
All the programmed inputs are recorded by PC and transferred by USB Port to the Xcrono. Once created a 'project' using Xcrono Lab and after uploading it on board of Xcrono the whole system specifications will be displayed on the monitor.
Summing up :
- At start up (or at any time it's required) the Xcrono Lab software allows the main system settings to be made or edited (number of zone, name of the zone , number of pumps, etc.). These settings are downloaded on the Xcrono module using a USB key.
- The system operating settings (temperature settings, working hours, mode of operation, etc.) are directly programmed on the Xcrono itself.
Xcrono is also designed to be connected to a router (through an ethernet plug) so you can control it by your Pc, Smartphone, Ipad.
