I sill cannot get this working, even using the basic therm function. I have a response which is converting the scs value from de f to deg c and then load it back in to the sensor regiser, is it possible that this is causing problems with the therm function ?

It may be the conversion in the same sensor. Try using a diferent sensor for  the  conversion

also what scs firmware do you have 2.04 is able to send temperature in degrees C or F and Comfigurator 3.11.9 has fixed the bug on sensor temperature units

Hi Slychui,
Where can I download the latest scs firmware ? My scs says version unknown ?
I have looked in the scs support pages and cant see any link to download the firmware, and it also does not workk via comfigurator ?

SCS uses older technology which does not allow firmware upgrade.

You need a physical upgrade of the PCB. Let me know if you are interested in this

OK, so I cant upgrade the scs firmware, what impact does this have on my thermostat function, seeing as I am trying to work in deg c.

I suspect what is happening is as the scs senses a change in temp, then it triggers the thermostat function response ?

If that is the case, I also have a response to convert the sensr register from deg f to deg c, and my setpoint is in deg c.

Is the thermostat function herefore reading the scs sensor in deg f, rather then deg c, and therefore turning off my heating ?

In the sensor response, you can do the conversion from F to C and save it in another sensor.
Then use the second sensor for your thermostat function

Hi Slychiu

Getting there now, it seems to be working for me. I have one additional question however.

With the therm function, what happens if the setback temp is changed, when will the therm function react to that ?

From looking at it, it appears that it will only act when the sensor temp next changes ?

So in theory, if the setback temp is 23 deg, an the actual sensor is 22 deg, then if I change he setback temp to 22 deg, comfort will not react until the sensor hits 24 deg ?

edit!!  Dam it, its still not working, I simply cannot get my heating relay to go on as expected via the thermostat function. Sorry, if its ok, I will send my file to support, I cannot figure out why this is not working!
