CLIMAtronic is Volkswagen’s fully electronic climate control system. It permits occupant control of interior airflow and temperature, and contains self-diagnostics and a long-term fault memory to closely monitor system operation. The system will automatically adjust itself to the occupant’s desired setting. Climatronic is beneficial to drivers in the following ways:
At least seven sensors located inside and outside the vehicle constantly monitor environmental conditions.Based on these sensor readings, the CLIMAtronic control unit computer tells a minimum of six actuators what to do to achieve the interior temperature and air distribution settings selected by the occupant.
The normal Volkswagen climatic system has a temperature sensor to help regulate interior temperature. So really both systems use sensors to maintain cabin air temperature and comfort. CLIMAtronic is distinguishable because it offers an “AUTO” temperature setting and dual-zone climate control.
