The RAS monitors temperature of the return air and is needed at
all times for system operation.
Mount Equipment Control Module on wall near HVAC equipment,
or on the air handler. Do not install Equipment Control Module
inside of the HVAC equipment. Use screws to securely fasten
control in place. Do not drill into critical furnace components. Wall
anchors and screws are provided for dry wall mounting (3/16”).
See next page for wiring.
Drill 1/4” hole in return air duct at least 18” upstream from
Insert RAS into duct and fasten with two sheet metal screws.
If the system is hydronic, locate return air sensor in conditioned
space.
