Buderus - Wired connection - Multi-zone heating/cooling

What do you need?

In short

Extra information


Specific electrical wiring is required.

Your Niko Home Control installation meets the following requirements:

  • It has a connected controller II.

  • It is configured with the most recent programming software (version 2.17 or higher).

You need the following if you want to use the Niko Home control multi-zone thermostat control:

  • a switching module for Niko Home Control (550-00103 or 550-00106) with at least one free output

  • a digital potential-free sensor module for Niko Home Control (550-00210) with at least one free input

  • a heating or cooling module for Niko Home Control (550-00150) (per four zones, an extra module is needed)

  • one thermostat per zone:

    • a Digital black, 24 V (550-1800X)

    • a push button with LED(s) and comfort sensors

Your partner system meets the following requirements:

  • It is a Buderus heat pump system that supports:

    • heating only

    • heating/cooling

  • It has a buffer tank

A 'PK2' contact on the installer board indicates whether the heating/cooling mode is active.

Wiring diagram for multi-zone heating/cooling

The below table shows how you can use Niko Home Control with your Buderus system and enable Niko routines (solar and peak mode).

Multi-zone heating/cooling –
The heating/cooling mode switchover is initiated by the partner system
(pump control not needed)

The 'PK2' contact provides the signal to the Niko Home Control installation to switch from heating to cooling mode and vice versa.

Multi-zone heating/cooling with zone valves can only be performed if the following conditions are met:

  • The heat pump has a buffer tank connected in parallel, as well as an additional bypass circuit.

  • The heat pump only takes into account the weather-dependent control, clock program (or manual) and flow temperature T0.

  • The heat pump decides between heating or cooling, depending on the weather. The Niko Home Control thermostats must be forced/blocked in the relevant mode via the Niko Home Control digital input module connected to output PK2.

    • Input closed = cooling

    • Input open = heating
