Leaf Ventilation Module

The Leaf Ventilation function block controls a Leaf Ventilation unit based on Humidity, Temperature, and CO2 levels. When using a Motion detector, different ventilation operating speeds can be defined dependant on presence detection. If desired, various special functions such as Sleep, Turbo, and Exhaust Air can be activated via the User Interface as well as via function block inputs. If several Leaf units are in use, these can simply be linked via the module properties. A distinction is made between Type A and Type B fans. This differentiation enables the fans to operate in opposite directions. This means that if Type A fans provides a fresh air supply then Type B fans will exhaust air.

An imbalance in the distribution between type A and B fans can lead to vacuum/over-pressurisation in the room! If air-dependant fireplaces are in the fan’s area of influence, a negative pressure can draw smoke into the living area!

Inputs

AbbreviationDescriptionUnitValue Range
HiInternal Humidity. If humidity exceeds parameter Hmax, the ventilation will increase. If this input is not connected, humidity is not taken into account.%0…100
CO2Internal Air Pollution. If CO2 levels exceed the parameter CO2max, ventilation is increased. If this input not connected, air pollution is not taken into account.ppm0…∞
TsOutside Air Temperature. Indicates the temperature of the incoming air. Used for Temperature functionality. If this input is not connected, the value of the System Variable “Outside Temperature” is used. If this is also not available, all Temperature Functionality is disabled.º
IwDigital Input – Window Contact (ON: Window open, OFF: Window closed), if window is open Ventilation is deactivatedDigital0/1
MvMotion Sensor Input. The overrun duration must be configured using parameter TH.Digital0/1
StSTOP. Stops the Fan and closes the Ventilation flap when ON.Digital0/1
SIDigital Input – Sleep Mode: Turns off ventilation for the time set in parameter TSl. Afterwards, the block will start again with ventilation.Digital0/1
TbBOOST. Stops all control and sets the output to 100 percent.Digital0/1
ExExhaust Air. Stops all control and exhausts air at 100 percent. ATTENTION: This input can only be used if the block property “Exhaust Air / Supply Air Operation Permitted” is activated.Digital0/1
RFAcknowledge Filter Change. Resets the filter warning. Should be activated after a filter change.Digital0/1

Properties

SummaryDescription
Ventilation Direction (Without Heat Exchanger)Sets the airflow direction on a pair of Leaf fans when the heat exchangers are disabled. If the heat exchangers are active then there is no set direction since the direction is reversed in regular intervals

Options:

  • From Fan A to Fan B
  • From Fan B to Fan A
Exhaust Air / Supply Air Operation PermittedSets whether a fan is permitted to operate as extract only. When active, an extra input is available on the Leaf function block which can be used to start the extract mode. WARNING: If a room has an open fireplace an extract fan in close proximity may result in smoke being pulled into the room!
Assigned Fan A/BLeaf fans are synchronised. Whilst fan A provides fresh air, fan B operates to extract stale air and vice versa. Please ensure that your configuration always contains the same number fans set to type A and B. WARNING: An uneven split may lead to either higher / lower air pressure in a room!Device Errors

Device Errors

If you receive a message that your Leaf unit has experience an aperture error or fan motor fault, refer to the documentation on the device’s diagnostic inputs here. for more detailed information.
