  1. 2. How do you think about radiators? „ You can‘t do without them, but radiators rarely are a beautiful sight to look at. Therefore attractive coverings become more and more popular. Try the disguise tactics – we present five ideas for you to try.“ Translated from: „Living at home“, Internet edition 21.04.03
  2. 3. Coverings are not necessary anymore... ...the radiator became transparent!
  3. 4. The Future Of Heating Is Clear
  4. 5. In bathroom applications... ...elegant & useful 
  5. 6. In office applications... ...noble & representative
  6. 7. In your conservatory... ...transparent & warming 
  7. 8. Product Information

  9. 10. Model Variations... Dimensions 600x400mm 1000x500mm 1200x600mm 1500x700mm Power 1 240W 500W 720W 1050W Weight 2 7,5 kg 15,5 kg 22,0 kg 32,0 kg Model 06/04 10/05 12/06 15/07 1 Power at 220V 2 Weight without fittings
  10. 11. Design Variations... SGG THERMOVIT ® ELEGANCE DIAMANT the fully transparent radiator
  11. 12. Design Variations... SGG THERMOVIT ® elegance DIAMANT the fully transparent radiator SGG THERMOVIT ® ELEGANCE CHARME with elegant screen-printed motif
  12. 13. Material:V2A solid Mounting Variations... Wall mountings - 4 cylindrical fittings, distance to wall = 50mm Towel rail - for the wall mounting in bathroom applications Cylindrical feet - for the fixed installation on the ground Base plates – for the variable positioning on the ground
  13. 14. A bimetal strip bends at a temperature of more than 105°C and thereby cuts off the power circuit mechanically. When the temperature drops the bimetal bends back in its old position and closes the power circuit again. A temperature sensor in the control cap on the back of the radiator measures the temperature on the glass surface and shuts the radiator at a temperature of 65°C automatically off. The radiator is made of laminated safety glass (similar to a car windscreen) and therefore remains intact even when the glass was broken. The tempered glass panes withstand even hardest hits. Safety... Electronic protection against overheating Mechanical protection against overheating Mechanical protection against breakage

  15. 16. Technology
  16. 17. <ul><li>Heating with glass </li></ul>Technical Approach... <ul><li>“ heating wire” is an electro conductive coating </li></ul><ul><li>specific power P spec > 500W/m² </li></ul><ul><li>resulting glass temperature 40 –85°C </li></ul><ul><li>heated is predominantly with infrared radiation less with convection (air circulation) </li></ul>
  17. 18. <ul><li>previous solutions : </li></ul><ul><li>electricity runs over the full width of the pane </li></ul><ul><li>disadvantage: </li></ul><ul><li>electric resistance of the heating surface is fixed  the input voltage has to be converted to fit to the wanted power output and the given resistance. </li></ul><ul><li>As a consequence every system needs a calibrated transformer and disturbing electrical contacts on two opposite edges of the radiator. </li></ul>Technical Approach ... SGG THERMOVIT ® ELEGANCE : the heated coating is configured into electro conductive tracks advantage: The electric resistance of the heating surface is adjusted to power and voltage  the input voltage can be used directly without any transformers. Only a relatively small electrical contact is needed.
  18. 19. Layout of the controller cap: Controller... <ul><li>1. layer – glass connection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- power insertion onto the coating - temperature sensor (electr. protection 85°C) - Bimetal-protection 105°C </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2. layer - Microprocessor with power controller </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- 15 power levels </li></ul></ul>3. layer – radio receiver 1 2 3
