EMS bus compatibility

EMS bus versions

The EMS bus has been around for quite a number of years. It has evolved into several versions:

  • EMS
  • Logamatic EMS
  • EMS2
  • EMS+
  • EMS Plus
  • Heatronic
  • Heatronic 3
  • 2 wire bus

They all use the same physical bus, but the protocol used on the bus may vary slightly between versions.

Other bus protocols

Old boilers do not support the EMS protocol but may use the iRT protocol. Also a small number of Bosch boilers use OpenTherm instead of EMS.

Bosch boiler brands

Bosch boilers brands include:

  • Bosch
  • Buderus
  • Nefit
  • Junkers
  • Worcester
  • Sieger

EMS device support list

Support for specific devices depends on the firmware on the Gateway. 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).

The firmware supports all 4 heating circuits 1 to 4 simultaneously.
