Hi, iv recently bought a vent axia piv unit. Iv noticed there is a space on the unit where a plug goes possibly for controls. The problem is I cant find any controls for it online, I wondered if there was anyone who could point me in the right direction, or if its not for a controller then possibly tell me what it is.

Thank you

Hi,

Although I do not know anything about this unit, I did have a quick trawl of the internet!
...and like you, have not come up with any answers to what the socket does.

I have seen mention of a humidity sensor, but I don't know where that would connect.

I strongly suspect, it may be something like a serial/USB port for updating, troubleshooting, assisting install, or downloading the report logs, but that is a complete guess.

Possibly moving this post to the 'Plumbing and central heating' section may attract the attention of a ventilation installer? :)

If you look at the picture of the unit at the start of the install instructions it only shows one socket above the mains outlet. The only mention of 2 sockets that I can see are on page 5 where it mentions installing a heater. My conclusion was that it is something to do with fitting a heater. The only other thing I can think of is that it is something that had a use but is not now on new models.
