Advanced floor heating comfort control made to blend in with any interior

Wednesday, 30 May 2018

At the beginning of 2017 we introduced Danfoss Icon™, a series of trendsetting 230 volt room thermostats for water based underfloor heating and other applications with actuators. Now we’re happy to announce the product range has been significantly expanded. Danfoss Icon™ provides you with a solution for all your floor heating and floor cooling control requirements.

Three systems

The extended Danfoss Icon™ product range is split into three systems:

  • 230 volt
  • 24 volt
  • wireless

and consists of different models and versions of room thermostats, Master Controllers and additional accessories.

The Danfoss Icon™ family now also contains highly advanced 24 volt and wireless systems that share the same Master Controller. By connecting the optional Radio Module to the Master Controller, the 24 volt system can be turned into a (full or partial) wireless system. Also later on in time, e.g. as a solution for house renovations. Different 24 volt and wireless room thermostats are available. You can read about it in more detail below.

Room Thermostats

The most noticeable aspect of the Danfoss Icon™ room thermostats is that they are hardly noticeable. The thermostats are designed to blend in with the interior of any room. When not in use, the touchscreen display will fade out. Due to the neutral white color background, it looks exactly like a light switch that blends in with any interior and existing switch frames. The frame from the in-wall mount thermostats can be exchanged with a compatible switch frame from well-known manufacturers such as Bush-Jaeger, Gira, Merten and Legrand. Therefore, with Danfoss Icon™ end-users can benefit from a wide variety of frames and have full freedom to match the design of their room thermostats with their light switches and power sockets.

230 volt Master Controllers

The Master Controllers are the heart of all floor heating and cooling control systems. For 230 volt systems there is a choice between a ‘Basic’ and ‘Featured’ model. Both 8 channel Master Controllers provide all the required features such as boiler relay and pump relay. The ‘Featured’ version, which will be available during autumn 2018, also contains global away input and manual cooling option.

24 volt Master Controllers and optional Modules

The 24 volt models, 10 or 15 channel Master Controllers are designed with a modular approach. They offer advanced features such as automatic balancing, bus communication, control of different heat emitters in the same room and an extended commissioning test. Once equipped with the optional Expansion Module they offer even more advanced features such as cooling control, pre-defined application settings and demand based supply temperature. The 24 volt Master Controllers can also be equipped with a Radio Module to turn it into a wireless Master Controller and an App Module to allow system access on mobile devices with the Danfoss Icon™ App.
