Thermostatic Radiator Valve.



Popp Thermostatic Radiator Valve has been crafted to power connected lighting using Z-Wave. It is powered by Popp technology. 


Before purchasing make sure to contact your Z-Wave Gateway/Controller manufacturer to determine if this device is compatible, typically most Z-Wave gateways will be generically compatible to Switch and Sensor type devices. The
technical specifications of Thermostatic Radiator Valve can be viewed at that link.

Quick start.

 

Getting your Thermostatic Radiator Valve up and running is as simple as installing it and linking it to your Z-Wave network. The following instructions tell you how to add your Thermostatic Radiator Valve to your Z-Wave network using an existing gateway. 


Installing TRV:



  1. Mount the adapter first.
    1. (If you use a RA adapter) Tighten the RA adapter using an Allen Key.
    2. (If you use a M30 adapter) Tighten the M30 adapter by and by twisting it clockwise.
  2. Screw in your TRV Thermostat over the adapter, and hand tighten by twisting clockwise.
  3. Press and hold  for 3 seconds to fix thermostat.
  4. Turn thermostat until it is correctly oriented.


Pair using an existing gateway:
  1. Place your gateway or controller into Z-Wave pair or inclusion mode. (Please refer to your controller/gateway manual on how to do this)
  2. Press and Hold Button ( ) on Thermostatic Radiator Valve for 3 seconds then release. ("M" will display over the LCD display)
  3. Your gateway should confirm if Thermostatic Radiator Valve is successfully included into your network.



Product Usage.


Wireless Control.

The TRV is operated by wireless commands from a Z-Wave controller. 

  • Direct setting of Temperature Set Point by Controller. (Attention: There may be a delay in execution of a setpoint command due to the wakeup interval of the device. If the setpoint is to be changed at e.g. 16.00 and the wakeup interval is 15 minutes, make sure to send the command latest at 15.45)


Manual Control.

The actual temperature setpoint is shown in the LCD display and can be overwritten by using the up and down arrow keys on the device. Overwriting is temporary and will only be valid until the next change of the temperature setpoint (either triggered from external wireless command or the internal downloaded schedule) becomes active.


Adjustment to the radiator.

This device can be adjusted to the room size that it is installed in. Default setting is P2.


P1 is used for oversized rooms.

P2 is used by default.

P3 is used for undersized rooms.


To change your settings follow these steps:

  1. Press  for 3 seconds to enter management mode (M in display)
  2. Press (v) until "O" appears over LCD screen
  3. Press  button again to enter room size change.
  4. Use the UP or DOWN arrow keys to select P1, P2, or P3.
  5. Exit and save your setting by pressing (o) again.


Remove TRV.

Remove the TRV by inserting the appropriate tool into the hole of TRV battery chamber. Keep the tool in position then twist the entire thermostat counter clockwise.




Advanced functions.


Communication to a Sleeping device (Wakeup).


This device is battery operated and turned into deep sleep state most of the time to save battery life time. Communication with the device is limited. In order to communicate with the device, a Z-Wave controller is needed in the network. 


This device will wakeup regularly and report a wakeup state by sending out a Wakeup Report. The controller can then empty the queued commands.


If the device was included by a Z-Wave controller, the controller will usually perform all necessary configurations. The wakeup interval is a trade off between maximal battery life time and the desired responses of the device.


Steps to wakeup Thermostatic Radiator Valve:

  • Tap the function button



Removing your Thermostatic Radiator Valve from a Z-Wave network.


Thermostatic Radiator Valve can be removed from your Z-Wave network at any time.You’ll need to use a Z-Wave primary controller to do this and the following instructions which will tell you how to do this using your existing Z-Wave Network.


This method can be used with any Primary Z-Wave Controller even if it is not directly paired to Thermostatic Radiator Valve.


Using an existing gateway:


1. Place your gateway or controller into Z-Wave unpair or exclusion mode. (Please refer to your controller/gateway manual on how to do this)

2. Tap the Button ( ) on Thermostatic Radiator Valve for 3 seconds then release. ("M" will display over the LCD display)

3. Your gateway should confirm if Thermostatic Radiator Valve is successfully excluded from your network.



Manually Factory Thermostatic Radiator Valve.


This method is not fully advised unless your gateway has failed, and you do not yet have another gateway to perform a general unpair instead.


1. Remove the batteries on TRV.

2. Place the batteries back into TRV.

3. Press and hold the function button  for 5 seconds immediately after placing the batteries back in.
