Windhager presents new touchscreen operations

March 01, 2016 - Future boilers from Windhager will feature innovative touchscreen operation. The new InfoWIN Touch operating element has an impressive, high-quality, capacitive glass display and intuitive smartphone operating philosophy.

Correctly controlling heating has a huge effect on comfort levels and the efficiency of a heating system. Windhager therefore considers it important to make heating system control as simple as possible for the operator.

The first step towards achieving this is the myComfort control app. Use of this app is just as simple as it is innovative and has been adapted to the superior functionality of a smartphone.

As simple as a smartphone

The new Windhager Boiler operating element InfoWIN Touch is just as easy to use as the app. Unlike most operating units on the market, it has a high-quality, capacitive glass display.Because this responds to touch like a smartphone or tablet, all relevant data can be accessed and set with just a few touch and swipe commands. For example, temperatures can be easily adapted using sliding controllers as with the app. All information is also displayed in reduced form and with self-explanatory symbols or plain text. The intuitive menu guide simplifies operation further.

A highly powerful processor also ensures a high resolution graphic depiction. To give the operator Access via his or her smartphone too, the InfoWIN Touch has been fitted with a webserver as standard.

Windhager has improved the functionality of the operating module as well. The operator can not only access all other system components, such as the buffer, but also navigate between them with simple swipe commands.

Master operating module for living areas

The new boiler operating element InfoWIN Touch is first being used on the new Windhager wood chip gasification boiler PuroWIN. It is also available as a master operating module with a compatible flush-mounted console for use in living areas. The InfoWIN Touch is an important part of the new Windhager system control MES Infinity, presented for the first time at the energy-saving trade fair in Wels, Austria.
