Autoterm 2D & 4D

How to Integrate Autoterm 2D/4D with VAN PI System

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Remove the Standard Control Panel:

    • First, remove the standard control panel from your Autoterm 2D heater.

  2. Connect the USB-Autoterm Cable:

    • Attach the USB-Autoterm cable to the same connector where the control panel was previously connected.

  3. Connect to VAN PI System:

    • Plug the other end of the USB-Autoterm cable into a free USB port on your VAN PI System.

  4. Configure the Web Interface:

    • Access the web interface of your VAN PI System.

    • Navigate to the "System" section.

    • Set the appropriate port to "Autoterm 2D" or "4D"

  5. Set Up the Inside Temperature Sensor:

    • In the "System" section, configure the inside temperature sensor. This sensor will be used for temperature regulation. -> If no sensor is connected only the Power Mode is working.

  6. Operating Modes:

    • Temperature Mode:

      • Triggered by "start temp mode".

      • The heater maintains the set temperature.

    • Power Mode:

      • Controlled via a slider or started with the "Start" Button

      • Allows manual adjustment of heating power.

    • Ventilation Mode:

      • The heater functions only to circulate air without heating.

  1. Additional Features:

  • Timer Function:

    • You can set a timer to schedule the heater to turn on or off at specific times.

  • Runtime Function:

    • Allows you to set a specific runtime for the heater, after which it will automatically shut off.

  1. Information Displayed:

  • Voltage:

    • Displays the voltage supplied to the heater, which might be slightly lower than the system voltage due to cable loss.

  • Fuel Pump:

    • Shows the frequency of the diesel pump in Hz.

  • Fan:

    • Indicates the fan motor's RPM (revolutions per minute).

  • Heater Temperature:

    • Displays the current heat exchanger temperature.

  • Note that some of these information parameters may not be available on the 4D model.

By following these steps, you can effectively integrate and manage your Autoterm 2D heater using the VAN PI System, taking advantage of its various modes for optimal comfort and efficiency.
