EMS device compatibility

Electrical compatibility

The EMS interface boards and the Gateways are electrically compatible with all EMS and Heatronic varieties. These include EMS, EMS+, EMS2, EMS Plus, Logamatic EMS, Junkers 2-wire, Heatronic, Heatronic 3. The EMS bus is 16V.

Do not connect any EMS product to an OpenTherm bus, or a 24V or mains power thermostat bus!

EMS devices

The support for EMS devices depends on the firmware of the Gateway.

Most Bosch branded boilers that support the Logamatic EMS / Heatronic bus protocols work with this design. This includes Nefit, Buderus, Worcester, Junkers and Sieger.

Support for new devices is added with every new release. If your device is not in the list below, it might still be fully or partially compatible. If you are missing parameters you can open an issue on the code repository to get support.

The list below summarizes EMS bus devices that are supported in firmware version 1.9.4 (December 2019).
