Ideas to Control the Valve
The valve is hooked up to a temperature controller. This temperature controller has a 'Boost' button which completely opens the valve for 300 seconds. In detail the controller behaves like this:
- After a startup: The controller has to be configured. To do this, the boost button has to be pressed five times. Then the controller starts to learn how far to move the motor to open or close the valve. Then the controller enters 'automatic' mode.
- Once in automatic mode, pressing the boost button results in the valve being opened for the next 300 seconds. Pressing the boost button again, within these 300 seconds stops the boost mode and the valve is closed. Pressing boost again results in the same behaviour, the valve is again opened for the next 300 seconds.
