INSTALLATION AND OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
Hot Water Control with
Outdoor Reset, Set
Point, and DHW for
Hydronic Applications
Two sensors are used, one to monitor the outdoor temperature
and one to monitor the circulating hot water temperature in
the heating system. When the outdoor temperature falls below
the outdoor cutoff setting, the heating system is activated
and the target water temperature is increased proportionally
to satisfy the load. Should it get warmer outdoors, the target
water temperature is automatically lowered by the control. If
the outdoor temperature continues to rise to the outdoor cutoff
setting then the heating system is turned off.

Boiler
The BCP-3 is a multi-boiler or multi-stage outdoor reset
hydronic heating control. It establishes ambient comfort by
varying the temperature of the heating system’s circulating
hot water in response to changes in the outdoor temperature.
In addition, it provides an outdoor temperature based cutoff,
heating system pump control, and domestic hot water (DHW)
pump control. Two unique features have been added to this
control including a customized reset ratio curve. A Set Point
option was added for applications where outdoor reset will not
apply.
Because of the many different physical characteristics of
buildings including the type of radiation; i.e., baseboard or
radiant, the heat loss varies. In one building, a 1-degree
outdoors temperature change may require a change of 1 degree
in heating water temperature; for another it may require a
change of 2, 3, or even 4 degrees in order to gain the desired
comfort level. This is known as the Reset Ratio. The Reset
Ratio chart shows the wide range of Reset Ratios available for
the BCP-3 in addition to the customized reset ratio. See page 2.

WARNING
The installer fits the BCP-3 to a specific building by adjusting
the Reset Ratio curve. With curve number 4 (2:1 reset ratio)
a 2-degree change in outdoor temperature will change the
Blue (Output 2) circulating hot water temperature by 1 degree; at curve number
11(1:3 reset ratio) an outdoor change of 1 degree will change
the water temperature by 3 degrees. Most buildings with
White (Output 3) baseboard radiation require a curve of 6, 7, or 8. Radiant heat
applications usually require a lower curve. An external T-Stat
input can be used to shut the heating system down when the
This Weil McLain control is strictly an operating control; it should never be used as a
primary limit or safety control. All equipment must have its own certified limit and safety
controls required by local codes. The installer must verify proper operation and correct any
safety problems prior to the installation of this Weil McLain control.

An optional domestic hot water input is provided for systems where an indirect tank
provides DHW. During a DHW call, the BCP-3 will maintain a constant set point of
200°F or the Maximum Water Temperature setting, whichever is lower, regardless of
outdoor temperature or the status of the heating system. If 1-On/Off+2-Pumps Output
Mode option was selected, the DHW pump will be enabled whenever there is a call for
DHW. In addition, the heating system pump can be programmed to turn off during a
DHW call for up to 120 minutes to satisfy the DHW demand quicker while withholding
building heat.

Operation Concept
The BCP-3 has multiple Output Modes of operation. It can control any three output boiler-and-pump variety ranging from a single
On/Off boiler with a system pump to three individual boilers. In addition, it can accepts a DHW call signal to raise the target set point.
Moreover, if "1-On/Off+2-Pump" is selected as an Output Mode, it will control the DHW pump allowing it to energize on a DHW
call. (See Output Mode Table under the Startup Menu on page 4.)
Boiler Operation
• When a single On/Off boiler is selected as the primary function of the BCP-3, the boiler relay will energize when the System
Sensor reading is below the Target temperature less the Differential. Moreover, the Outdoor Sensor reading must be below the
Outdoor Cutoff setting and the EXT+/EXT- (Enable/Disable) terminals must be shorted using a dry-contact switch or a jumper. If
the System temperature exceeds the Target, the boiler relay will de-energize.
• If sequencing multiple stages or boilers are the primary function of the BCP-3, the BCP-3 will use the Purge Delay to start the lead
boiler. Then, it will use the Reaction Time to add additional stages or boilers. When subtracting stages, the BCP-3 will use only the
Minimum Run Time.
System Pump Operation
• When the BCP-3 is in one of the Output Modes that control the System Pump relay while the EXT+/EXT- (Enable/Disable)
terminals are shorted using a dry-contact switch or a jumper, the System Pump relay will energize, as long as the Outdoor Sensor
reading is below the Outdoor Cutoff setting. However, upon the opening of the EXT+/EXT- (Enable/Disable) terminals or if the
Outdoor Sensor reading rises two degrees above the Outdoor Cutoff setting, all boiler relays will de-energize and the System Pump
relay will remain energized for the Run-On delay period before de-energizing.
• If DHW Priority was set to other than "NO", a DHW call using terminals T3+/T3- (DHW call Input) will de-energize the System
Pump relay for the period of the DHW priority or the termination of the DHW call, whichever comes first. This will ensure all
boiler outputs are directed to produce domestic hot water.
• If DHW Priority was set to "NO", then a DHW call will not have any effect on the System Pump relay.
DHW Pump Operation
• When the BCP-3 is controlling the DHW Pump relay by selecting "1-On/Off+2-Pump" mode from the Output Modes, a DHW
call using terminals T3+/T3- (DHW call Input) will energize the DHW Pump relay. In addition, the BCP-3 will raise the Target
temperature to the lower of 200˚F or the Maximum Water temperature Setting.
• When the BCP-3 is in Outdoor Cutoff or when the EXT+/EXT- (Enable/Disable) terminals are open, a DHW call will energize only
the DHW Pump relay in a DHW Priority setting. See Output Mode Table on page 4. However, if No DHW Priority was selected,
both the System and DHW Pumps will energize on a DHW call.

• The BCP-3 does not source any output power
to any of its relays. A power source must supply the pumps with power and the control can
break the hot leg.
• Weil McLain recommends not sharing the
power source to the control with any pumps,
boilers, or heavy electric equipment.
• When wiring a sensor to the BCP-3, connect
the Shield to the COM terminal on the BCP-3
end. DO NOT connect the Shield at the sensor
end.
• Eventhough in some Output Modes the BCP-3
does not control the DHW Pump, a DHW call
will raise the System Target to whichever is
lower of 200F or the Maximum Water Temp.

/<Out. Reset>/Reset Ratio
• The Reset Ratio determines how the System Target temperature will vary with Outdoor
temperature changes. The colder it gets outside, the hotter the Target will be. The Ratio is
measured as; Outdoor (O): System Water (S).
• With a 1.00:4.00 ratio, the System water temperature will increase rapidly as the outside
temperature falls hitting the maximum default water temperature of 240°F at 35°F outdoor
temperature. With a 4.00 (O):1.00 (S) ratio, the System water temperature (S) will increase
slowly as the outside temperature (O) falls.
• The Reset Ratio controls the amount of heat entering the heating system based on the outdoor
temperature. A higher numbered Reset Ratio will result in a higher Calculated water temperature.
See the Reset Ratio chart on page 2. If the application has radiant heat, a lower numbered Reset
Ratio curve should be selected. See Type of Radiation in Building Table on page 2.
• Reset Ratios are adjustable based on the building and application. See suggested ratios on page 2.

If required: Adjust the RESET RATIO in cold weather. If the ambient building temperatures are too cold in cold weather,
move the ratio to a higher selection. That is, if 1.00 (O):1.00 (S) was initially selected, change the selection to 1.00 (O):1.25 (S).
If the building temperatures are too warm in cold weather, move the ratio to a lower selection. That is, if 1.00 (O):1.00 (S) was
initially selected, change the selection to 1.25 (O):1.00 (S).
The Custom option gives the user the capability of creating a specialized Reset Ratio curve. Setting two points on the Reset Ratio
chart generates the customized curve. Each point requires a System Water Temperature SYS and an Outdoor Temperature OD.
The line connecting the two points will be the reset ratio. The Offset, Minimum Target and Maximum Target settings will still

/<Out. Reset>/Reset Ratio/Custom
• For situations where the standard reset ratios do not provide the perfect building heat-loss
equilibrium, the customized option can be used.
• The Custom Reset Ratio is only available when Custom is selected from the Reset Ratio menu.
It provides the user with the capability of assigning two points on the reset ratio diagram and use
the line that connects those two points as the customized reset ratio curve. Each of the two points
will need a specific System and Outdoor Temperature to identify it on the diagram.
• To Specify the first point, set Sys Temp 1, and OD Temp 1. Then, set Sys Temp 2, and OD
Temp 2, to set the second point on the curve. The two points can be any where on the line, not
necessarily at the ends.
• The chart shows an example of a customized curve 6(O):5(S) that does not exist in the standard
curve options. If the outdoor temperature reaches 30ºF, the system target will be 145ºF.
• Remember that the Min Target and Max Target apply to all reset ratios including the custom reset
ratio ones.

/<Out. Reset>/Offset
• The Offset setting adjusts the starting points of the Reset Ratio curves. This means that, regardless of the Outdoor temperature
or the Reset Ratio, when the Offset setting is changed, that change is directly added to or subtracted from the calculated Target.
For example, if the Set Point temperature was 130°F and the Offset was changed from 0° to +10°, then the Set Point temperature
would increase to 140°F
• If required: Adjust the Water Offset in mild weather. If the ambient building temperatures are too warm in the mild weather,
decrease the Offset. If the ambient building temperatures are too cold in the mild weather, increase the Offset. The rule of thumb
for baseboard radiation is to change the Offset 4°F for every 1°F you wish to change the building temperatures. In radiant heat
applications, change the Offset 1°F or 2°F for every 1°F you wish to change the building temperature. See Type of Radiation in
Building Table on page 2.

• The Outdoor and Cutoff temperatures can be viewed from the default screen by clicking the Up or Down buttons.
• When the outdoor temperature falls to the adjustable Outdoor Cutoff temperature, the BCP-3 will control the System Pump and
Boiler relays to provide heat.
• When the outdoor temperature rises to the Outdoor Cutoff plus a 2°F differential, the BCP-3 will turn the boilers off. The System
relay will remain energized for the Run-On delay then de-energize.
• The Outdoor Cutoff can be set from 30°F to 75°F. In addition, the Setting can be set to ON or OFF. If ON is selected, the System
Relay will run regardless of the Outdoor temperature and the boilers will be active to hold the calculated water temperature. If
OFF is selected, the System and Boiler relays will always be off.

• It is the amount of time it takes a single stage to affect the system.
• After the BCP-3 turns on a stage trying to meet a set point, it will not turn on another stage until
the reaction time has elapsed. Then, it will recalculate if an additional stage is need.
• To determine the optimum time, in a heating system start with a hot system. Then, turn on a
single stage and calculate how long it takes until the system begins to respond to that stage by
rising an additional 2°F. That period should be set as the Reaction Time.
Purge

/<Settings>/<Stage>/Purge
• Most large units must go through a purge cycle before they are brought on line.
• When the BCP-3 activates a unit (the lowest firing stage on a boiler), it does not start to calculate
its output until the Purge Delay is over. This allows the boiler to fully come on and begin
producing output.
• The Purge Delay helps prevent short cycling of newly activated boilers. Once the lowest boiler
stage is activated, it MUST run through the entire Purge Delay period before starting the Reaction
Time calculation..
• The Purge Delay setting MUST be set to the time required by the boiler's manufacturer
specification.

• The Differential controls boiler cycling. When there is a call for heat, the boiler will be activated until the Calculated temperature
is reached. The boiler will then turn off and stay off until the system water temperature falls to the Set Point less the Differential.
• A smaller Differential setting will normally result in tighter control of the set point but will tend to increase the frequency of
boiler cycling. Larger Differential values will reduce boiler short cycling, but the system will be allowed to vary further from the
target value.

• The System Pump relay will energize whenever the Outdoor temperature is below the Outdoor Cutoff. When the Outdoor
temperature increases 2°F above the Outdoor Cutoff and after the boiler relay has de-energized, the pump relay will stay on for a
period set by the Run-On. This allows the Pump to dissipate the residual heat within the boilers back into the system.
• The Run-On time should be set based on the size and type of the boilers and pump. In general, a boiler with large water content
and high horsepower will need a longer Run-On than a boiler with the same horsepower and less water content. (Refer to boiler
manufacturer recommendation).
• When DHW Priority is selected while the EXT+/EXT- (Enable/Disable terminals) are open or the outdoor temperature is above
the Outdoor Cutoff, a DHW call will energize only the DHW relay. When the DHW call expires, the DHW Pump relay will run
for the Run-On period then de-energize.

• The DHW Priority, with a value set to other than NO, provides the user with an adjustable DHW priority timer for the domestic
hot water call. That is, initiating a DHW call will de-energize the system pump relay for the period set by the DHW Priority.
However, the DHW relay, when 1-On/Off+2-Pump is selected as the Output mode from the Startup menu, will remain energized
for as long as the DHW is active. This will take place whenever the Outdoor temperature is below Outdoor Cutoff and the EXT+/
EXT- (Enable/Disable terminals) are closed/shorted.
• On the other hand, when the EXT+/EXT- (Enable/Disable terminals) are open or the Outdoor temperature is 2°F above the
Outdoor Cutoff, a DHW priority call will energize the DHW pump and boiler relays. When the DHW call expires, the DHW
Pump relay will remain energized for the Run-On delay then de-energize.
• If NO was selected as the option for the DHW Priority, a DHW call will energize both relays, system pump and DHW pump even
when TSTAT is de-activated.

• The lower Set Point will appear on the main display indicating SBC TGT= .
• For example; when the calculated temperature is 160°F and the Setback is set to 20°F, a setback call will change the Set Point to
(160°F - 20°F) 140°F.
• A typical use for the Setback is to provide a reduced system temperature to a building during the night or on the weekends when
building is not occupied, but heat is still required.
• The Setback is activated by closing/shorting the P+ and P- terminals using an external timer, control, or a switch.
Boost

Default: No
SET
/Settings>/Setback/Boost.
• The morning Boost is designed to return the building to comfortable ambient temperatures
after the night Setback period. The BCP-3 will accomplish this by running elevated water
temperatures (will add Setback setting to calculated water temperature) for 30 minutes after
the opening of the setback terminals P+ and P-. That is, if the normal set point at a specific
outdoor was 145˚F and the Setback setting was 20˚F, the boost will raise the system calculated
temperature to 165˚F for 30 minutes after the setback.

BCP-3 Installation and Operation Manual
Troubleshooting
No Display or LED Lights
Check the power to the BCP-3. The BCP-3 requires 120VAC power to the Black wires or 24VAC to the right-most terminals.
Turn the power off and back on to restore the display. If unsuccessful, make sure that the control's Display Cover is securely
mounted to the Base.
System or Outdoor Reads OPEN or SHORT
If the sensor reads Open, short the sensor input terminals. The display should read SHORT. If it doesn’t, the BCP-3 may be
damaged.
If the sensor reads Short, remove the wires from the input terminals. The display should read OPEN. If it doesn’t, the BCP-3 may
be damaged.
System or Outdoor Sensor Reads an Incorrect Temperature
Remove the sensor wires from the input terminals. The display should change to read OPEN. If it doesn’t, the BCP-3 may be
damaged. Take an ohm reading across the detached sensor wires. The ohm reading should correspond to the Temperature Sensor
Chart. If the difference is within 5°F adjust the sensor Trim. Otherwise, the sensor may be damaged.
No Heat - All LEDs are OFF
Check the outdoor temperature and the Outdoor Cutoff readings. If the outdoor temperature is above the Outdoor Cutoff, the
BCP-3 will not give heat. If the display shows TSTAT OPEN then, check the EXT terminals. If the EXT terminals are not
jumped together, the BCP-3 will not give heat.
No Heat - All LEDs are ON
First, make sure that the system pump is running. Remove any connections to the Yellow wires for the Heating System Pump.
Test for continuity across the pair of Yellow wires. If the wires are continuous, the BCP-3 is calling for the Heating System Pump
to run and the problem is not with the BCP-3. Check the power source to the pump and the pump to determine why it is not
circulating.
Second, check the boiler operation and safety control status.
No Heat - System Pump LED ON
Check that the displayed System water temperature is below the Target water temperature minus the Differential. If not, wait
until the System temperature falls, and then the stage LED should come on and the boiler should fire. Otherwise, remove all
connections from the Blue pair of wires. Check for continuity across the pair of Blue wires using a meter. If the wires are
continuous, the BCP-3 is calling for the boiler to run. Check the boiler to determine why it is not firing.
Temperature Sensor Chart
No Heat - Boiler LED ON
The BCP-3 is registering a call for DHW. If the DHW Priority is
set to a value other than NO, the Heating System Pump will not run
during the priority period of a DHW call. Generally, the DHW will
be satisfied before a drop in ambient temperature is noticeable. If
the DHW load is large or the boiler can satisfy both loads, change
the Priority setting to NO, this will allow the Heating System Pump
to circulate hot water to the building while the DHW tank is being
satisfied.

BCP-3 Installation and Operation Manual
BCP-3 Plumbing Diagrams
BCP-3
• The BCP-3 does not source any output power to any of its
relays. A power source must supply pumps with power and
the control can break the hot leg.
• Weil McLain recommends using a separate power source
to the control from any pumps, boilers, heavy electric
equipment.
• When wiring a sensor to the BCP-3, connect the Shield to
the COM terminal on the BCP-3 end. DO NOT connect
the Shield at the sensor end.
• Weil McLain is aware that each installation is unique.
Thus, any wiring or piping diagrams in this document
