When the temperature reaches the pre-set value, the system starts and the controller opens a valve.

It alternates the soaking between On and Off periods.

When the temperature is below the set value, the system shuts off.
The Smart mode allows the controller to regulate the length of the On and Off periods.

For higher temperatures, the On periods will be longer and the Off periods shorter.
