Climate model controls and maintains state for thermostats and other climate-controlling hardware with which Crestron integrates.
Exactly one climate model is associated with exactly one thermostat in the smw. The Climate model maintains power and feedback state and provides both CHV-TSAT controls and full generic controls, facilitating the ability to easily dictate, increment, and decrement heat, cool, and humidifier setpoints, in addition to dictating heat, cool, fan, and humidifier modes.
The ID parameter specified in the Climate model can be entered as the climate parameter in the
Room model, making that Climate model instance (and thus its associated physical thermostat) the default for that room model (meaning that thermostat automatically appears when the Climate button is selected while that room is selected).
Feedback includes heat and cool setpoints as well as heat/cool, fan, and humidifier modes. The Climate model also supports "call" signals from the Current System State slot (Slot-04) on the Cresnet device to receive additional feedback. In addition, the Climate model has signal slots for device extenders, namely serial TX~ and RX~ signals for a scheduler, to send to all, and to tell all to run/hold.
Simply link the signals on the CHV-TSAT Cresnet device to the signals on the Climate model with the associated prompts (i.e. SysModeHeat input on CHV-TSTAT device links to Mode_Heat output on Climate model and the associated feedback SysModeHeat_F output links to Mode_Heat_Fb input).
Configure the Name and ID parameters. The Climate Name can be anything. The Climate ID should use a two-digit, zero-padded number between 1 and 99 (1 or 99).
