The multi-sensor electronic allocator VIPA EC Radio

The multi-sensor electronic allocator serves for heat cost billing in buildings with a central heating system. The heat cost allocator allows each resident to share the heating cost of the whole complex of flats with the amount that matches the resident own heat usage.

The heat cost allocator VIPA EC Radio integrates backwater temperature of a radiator as a main index of installed heating power utilization.


  • reading without entering the flat
  • the elimination of the manual processing mistakes
  • the acceleration of the measuring process
  • heat cost allocator memory for last 18 months
  • the full controlled reading without possibility of meter - reader intervention
  • installation without damaging the heating system
The multi-sensor electronic allocator VIPA EC Radio

Technology at your side

A modern allocator is controlled by the microprocessor with a memory which contains the information about reading since last 18 months and on the date of accounting period. The device is equipped with highly sensitive temperature sensors and it fulfils all requirements for getting a perfect reading for the correct heat cost calculation. The allocator is also equipped with the electronic-mechanical seal which blocks the device reading at dismounting.

Radio transmission of measured data brings the highest comfort, high security, speed and accuracy in collecting the data needed to implement the budget.

Allocator use new bidirectional communication standard Rcom. This communication is implemented on a frequency 868MHz with transmitting power 10mW.

The quality and accuracy

The heat allocators VIPA use an unique access to the proportional heat consumption indicating and the sequent heat bill calculation. Calculated average temperature of the reading rooms is the decisive factor, not a heat delivered by a radiator. This temperature in each room depends on the heat output of the radiator, which is indicated by the temperature of the water in the outlet pipe.

Complex solution

The heat allocator is only one of the factors of quality and rightful heat bill calculation. We also offer the long-time complex rightful heat calculation with our own software VipaCalc which is optimize for quick and troublefree heat calculation being implementated in tens of thousands flats.

Range of application

The indicator is designed for buildings with two-pipe heating system. We recommend a professional entry consultation in case of one-pipe vertical or horizontal system. It is determined for most radiators and convectors. It is impossible to use it for heating radiators with additional source of energy or for variable heat output, e.g. bathroom ladders with heating cartridge or convectors with a fan.
