Integrate renewable energy sources with a Smile


Honeywell and its CentraLine brand for building controls have introduced an easy-to-use controller which manages the energy-efficient integration of renewable-energy sources with heating systems using gas or oil and with district heating.

The Smile 3 controller can be used with systems using radiators, convectors and also with low-temperature circuits such as underfloor heating.

Such systems can be integrated efficiently with sources such as solar power, heat pumps and wood burners.

This controller can also manage complex heating systems requiring boiler sequencing. Its OpenTherm interface can exchange data with certified devices such as condensing boilers. Up to five Smile controllers can be linked using a

2-wire bus to form a control system.
