Bosch Launches New Pump with Wi-Fi
10 June 2019
Bosch has announced the launch of their new CDi series Greensource geothermal heat pumps that are Wi-Fi-enabled. The pumps allow installation and troubleshooting operations to be facilitated through the Bosch EasyStart app. The mobile app provides contractors with an intuitive user interface from which they can configure and commission new units without a need to remove access panels to toggle DIP switches or cut resistors.
The Bosch EasyStart app provides critical insights when troubleshooting. It displays real-time temperature readings, operating modes, component status, thermostat demand and active system timers. Technicians can also call-up fault history and display the latest faults captured by the microprocessor board. The CDi series Greensource geothermal heat pump is Energy Star certified for groundwater and ground loop applications. It provides a summer cooling mode and winter heating mode and is easily coupled to a ground loop or well system.
The unit's standard features include two-stage scroll compressor technology and variable speed electronically commutated blower fan motors, which both provide higher operational efficiency while delivering constant airflow.
The new high-efficiency geothermal heat pumps from Bosch Thermotechnology claim to reduce utility bills by up to 70% while operating at sound levels as low as 52 dB. They are available in several sizes ranging from 2 to 6 tons to suit the needs of any given residential water source heat pump application.
