Uponor Climate Cŏntrol™ - Multifunction Boosts System Functionality, Reduces Install Costs

The new Climate Cŏntrol™ - Multifunction from Uponor is a hydronic controller that offers a dramatically streamlined, less time-intensive approach to installing controls for radiant heating and cooling systems. Instead of creating specific individual controls for domestic hot water, mixing, snowmelt, boiler staging and zone pumping, all of these and other functionalities can now be handled by a single, easy-to-use, programmable control. The Climate Cŏntrol - Multifunction eliminates the need for multiple controls on a wall and all the accompanying wiring complexity, reducing product costs as well as design and installation time.

Designed to replace the Uponor pro Series line of temperature controls, the new controller features simple, plug-and-play Cat5 wiring for sensors and connection boxes, rather than conventional multi-strand thermostat wire. As a result, it is also more consistent with current home-installation practices.

Measuring only 13"H x 9½"W x 1½"D, the device includes eight generic input and eight generic output connection points to further simplify installation. When setting up a particular control, the installer simply keystrokes the needed functionality into the five-button, four-line, 16-character display on the front of the Climate Cŏntrol - Multifunction.

“By providing one interface for multiple manifolds, the new Climate Cŏntrol - Multifunction radically simplifies the system design and installation task, so that setup and installation take less than one-third the time they used to,” says Mark Hudoba, Uponor senior product manager, Heating and Cooling. “The installer never has to think about how to wire, because the plug-and-play device always connects the same way.”

In addition, unlike other controls, the new Climate Cŏntrol - Multifunction can be upgraded in the field without having to remove the control from the radiant system. “This allows the installer or end user to adapt an existing system to equipment or technology changes,” says Hudoba.

A portable data stick for storing upgrades and system configurations is also available, so that the same functionalities are quickly and easily loaded onto other systems, saving programming time.

Given the feature-rich, laborsaving flexibility of the Climate Cŏntrol - Multifunction, the device will likely carry a higher purchase price than a single-mixing device. “But if an application calls for multiple functionality, requiring more than one control box, the new controller will deliver substantial savings to the installer,” says Hudoba. “Even when compared with a single-function control, the Climate Cŏntrol - Multifunction offers a highly competitive total installed cost.”
