Danfoss Introduces Touch Thermostat with Wi-Fi Connectivity
Danfoss has expanded its portfolio of thermostats for electric floor heating, introducing a new version of its programmable touch thermostat that now offers Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Danfoss LX205T Wi-Fi Touch Thermostat is designed specifically for electric underfloor heating applications, and can control Danfoss LX Floor Warming Mats, LX Floor Warming Cables or the TX Thermal Trace electric heating products.
With a 3.5-inch high-resolution color touch screen, the thermostat features an updated, sleek design and intuitive control, and enables remote access to the system via apps for iOS and Android—making it convenient for the user to adjust and monitor the system from any location. The LX205T Wi-Fi Touch Thermostat is also programmable, allowing the user to set predetermined times for the underfloor heating system to turn on and off, enabling occupants to benefit from warm floors when the space is occupied and save energy when the space is empty.
The thermostat also offers smart power control. By default, the thermostat controls ambient temperature and protects the floor against overheating.
Additional features of the LX205T Wi-Fi Touch Thermostat include: updated, simple scheduling method for easier, on-the-go system modifications; power consumption monitoring and logging, with the ability to export data to PC; universal compatibility with existing floor heating sensors; and five-year battery backup of clock and calendar.
Installation of the Danfoss LX205T Wi-Fi Touch Thermostat is as simple as connecting the wires, turning on the power, and following the built-in wizard to set up the thermostat and connect to Wi-Fi. It is suitable for installations of tile, stone, laminate, concrete and engineered wood floor applications.
