1

Go to the controller settings

To configure the input ports, you must first go to the controller settings:
● Go to Menu - Device Manager● Select the desired controller from the list and click Setup

Configure input ports

● Select the Ports and interfaces item and go to the IN 1-9 tab● On the input ports tab IN1- .. controller’s inputs are shown as separate cards

Select the type of peripheral device

● Select the Input you want to configure● In the input settings window select "What is connected?"● From the list of available devices, select the Temperature sensor● Specify the Type of sensor (PT100, PT500, PT1000)

Advanced sensor settings

● Select the Advanced settings icon● Here, you can specify the:- update period - frequency of updating data of device;- precision - maximal deviation which will not trigger sending new data;
 And, if necessary:- offset - correction of received data;
● Enter the coefficients in the appropriate fields of the ADC. The coefficients are set by default, and, if necessary, their values can be changed to those recommended by the manufacturer● Save the settings by clicking on the icon and go back to the window: settings of the selected input port

Note: Advanced settings always contain default data. Changing the values in the advanced settings is an optional step.

Choosing a room

● In the field "Where the device is located" you can specify the location of the sensor● If you need to add a new room, click on the "+" icon located in the upper right corner of the screen, assign a name to the new room, set its type and click on the Save icon

Name of the sensor

● Return to the Settings window of the selected input port.● In the Name field, for convenience, you should specify the name of the sensor, by which you can uniquely identify it● Click the Save icon

Note: If the device name is not specified, the system will assign the default name to the sensor, "temperature sensor"

The result of the described steps:

● The temperature sensor is configured and ready for use. You can view the temperature sensor readings by going to the Dashboard tab.● A long press on the temperature sensor card brings up the detailed view screen. Later, the temperature graph and time-temperature data will be displayed here.● Now you can then set up thermostats and automations to control heating, air conditioning or ventilation.

Important! If the sensor is not physically connected or the electrical contact at the connections is broken, the sensor readings will be -0.0°C
