Altox Fan controller unit - now available :)

The long awaited fan control unit (IPCU) for D3's without timed climate is now available, it's designed to work linked to an Altox wbus 5 controller.

I've not tested the therory as I've a D4, but I think it could work with other FBH controllers , this is yet to be proved .

Anyway, I'll be getting a delivery next week along with more FBH controllers

Price will be £175 inc RM special delivery

What you get, the IPCU module and a plug and play wiring loom that links into the back of the HVAC panel, giving fan control



Please PM me to pre order so I can ensure I order enough on the first delivery Cool Thumbs Up Thumbs Up



Full description for those that want the detail Thumbs Up

The ALTOX EUROPE D3/RRS EASY IPCU module is an extension to the ALTOX WBUS- 5 GPS /none GPS for Land Rover Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport (through MY 2010) to control interior fans when the Webasto Thermotop V Heater is used as parking heater

It can also be used with any other device that controls the Webasto ThermoTop V Heater on the Land Rover Discovery 3 and Range Rover sport.


Easy to connect
Plug and Play behind HVAC system
No cutting wires under installation
Temperature controlled start by the ALTOX WBUS-5

CONTROL OF THE INTERIOR BLOWER

The D3/RRS EASY IPCU module turns on the inner fans. It controls the fan relay and regulates the fan speed. The fan speed can be adjusted via a trim potentiometer.

When controlled by the Altox W-bus 5, we recommend setting startup temperature for D3/RRS EASY IPCU between 40-50 Celcius , (this is done by texting LTEPM1:## to your Altox W-bus 5) to prevent unnecessary usage of battery power, then fans will not kick in before coolant is warm

Set potentiometer to a speed that equals between level 1 or 2 when using the temperature controlled startup

If used with other devices that can’t delay startup time it should and must only run relatively slowly. We recommend a speed equal to level 1 or less.

CONTROL OF THE VENTILATION FLAPS

In order to allow air to flow not only to the footwell but also to the windshield when the interior blower is switched on and to be routed through the heat exchanger, the D3/RRS EASY IPCU module interrupts the control lines to the actuators of the dampers with the ignition switched off. Thus, the vehicle can no longer automatically close the flaps around 2 minutes after the ignition is switched off.

The air distribution when switching on the fan is the same as before switching off the ignition. For optimal warming, the temperature should be set to maximum so that the mixing flap in front of the heat exchanger is completely open and, if necessary, the air distribution on the windshield. The Defrost setting is not recommended, as the temperature is not changed in this program and therefore the heat exchanger flap may not be fully open.

SUMMER / WINTER SWITCH

In order to avoid the calibration of the ventilation flaps each time the ignition is switched on, the IPCU module can be switched to summer mode via a switch provided. The switch can either be in the glove compartment (drilling needed) or simply remain behind the center console trim. If required, it can be removed within seconds and gives access to the switch.

CONTROLLING

The D3/RRS EASY IPCU module is powered/operated in 2 ways, depending on switch setting inside the D3/RRS EASY IPCU

A = +12 volt (one wire only)

B = +12 volt and Ground as control signal (Factory setting)



ALTOX Wbus-5

Switch set to B, Connect white and yellow wire from EASY IPCU to white and yellow wire from ALTOX Wbus-5

BAS-FBHIC3

Switch set to A, Connect white wire from EASY IPCU to brown wire on BAS-FBHIC3


BAS Intelligent FBH controller and other Controllers without Outpu

Switch set to A, Connect white wire from EASY IPCU to the FBH (top left plug, Black cable) because the OLD BAS control does not provide an output signal

Webasto timer

For the Webasto 1533 pre-selection clock, Pin 2 (Out / black) supplies the necessary switching voltage


Installation

The connection of the D3/RRS EASY IPCU module takes place behind climate control unit with the plug and play cable loom, then connected to controller or heater according to instructions

Will only be plug and play on cars with Seat heating, it is possible to connect without seat heating, but takes a little more work
