Mounting

Follow the installation and operating instructions to install the device. These contain important information and notes on the valve and Valve Actuator.


Commissioning

In delivery state, pairing mode will be active after the power supply has been established. This is indicated by the status LED flashing red/green/orange.

Then follow the pairing procedure

To activate the pairing mode manually, hold down the pairing button for at least 5 seconds after establishing power supply.
The pairing button is located on the circuit board, see Installation manual page 10.


Water Level

The water level in the pool can be determined with the help of a pressure sensor.
For this purpose, a 0-0.3 bar pressure sensor is installed in a location where it is fully exposed to the pool water pressure. For example, the main drain pipe can be used for this.
Not suitable are pipes in the filter circuit, or other pipes with changing pressure conditions.

This pressure sensor is connected to the 0-10V input (Ps1) of the Aquastar Air.


1-wire Interface

1-Wire sensors can be connected to the 1-Wire interface of the device.
More about this in the Documentation of the 1-Wire Extension, the properties of the interface are identical.
