Sauna controllers and UKU control systems
UKU sauna control systemenables one to heat the sauna with a few clicks and to configure its temperature from the wall-mounted sauna control panel or through the mobile app. It is possible to connect the UKU control system to the sauna lighting/ventilation and a vaporizer. There are three variations of the control system: UKU Local, UKU WiFi and UKU 4G.
Features of the UKU control system:
suitable for sauna heaters with a capacity of up to 18 kW
controllers are available with different color and style options
the control system is compatible with electric sauna heaters of various manufacturers
These are variations of the UKU control system. The only difference between UKU Local, UKU WiFi and UKU 4G resides in whether the model is based on using solely the control unit on site, or also permits using the remote control option. UKU Local enables one to heat the sauna and to configure relevant functions from the control panel that is mounted to the sauna room wall only, while UKU Wi-Fi and UKU 4G also support utilization of the HUUM mobile app. UKU WiFi needs connection with a WiFi network; UKU 4G is equipped with a SIM card and requires connection with a mobile data communication network.
HUUM sauna heaters are operable with controllers of different manufactures on the presumption that they are certified and have the integrated temperature adjustment function. Capacity of the sauna heater should remain within the range established by the manufacturer of the controller.
The sauna control panel must be installed outside the steam room. It is recommended to mount it at the user’s eye level next to the door of the steam room.
The main module must be installed in a dry place that is easy to access. It is not recommended to mount the main module in the steam room – the user is solely responsible for installing the main module in the steam room.
When installing a UKU WiFi or UKU 4G sauna control system, it is vital to ensure that WiFi or 4G coverage is available at the location chosen for the main module.
