WARNING ABOUT HOT WATER
Excessively hot water is dangerous, especially
for young children and the infirm. Rinnai water
heaters allow you to control the temperature of
hot water to safe levels.
Water temperatures above 55°C can cause
severe burns instantly and may even result in
death. Those most at risk are children, disabled,
elderly and the infirm. Hot water at 65°C (the
average hot water temperature in New Zealand)
can severely burn a child in less than half a
second. At 55°C it takes half a minute.
ALWAYS......
Test the temperature of the water with your
elbow before placing your child in the bath,
also carefully feel water before bathing or
showering yourself.
Supervise children whenever they are in the
bathroom.
Make sure that the hot water tap is turned off
tightly.
CONSIDER.....
Installing child proof tap covers or child
resistant taps (both approaches will prevent a
small hand being able to turn on the tap).
Setting your appliance at a maximum
temperature of 55°C (Contact Rinnai New
Zealand).
NEVER…..
Leave a toddler in the care of another child.
They may not understand the need to have the
water temperature set at a safe level.

Operation Manual:01-07
GENERAL WATER CONTROLLER INFORMATION
Temperature water controllers allow precise temperature control by the user. When used correctly,
the hot water unit will deliver the selected temperature, even when the water flow is varied, or more
than one tap is in use. Each water controller can be individually programmed, however the water
heater can only deliver one set temperature at any time. The available temperatures (°C) are as
follows:
Kitchen Controller:
37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 48, 50, 55°C* (60°C, 65°C, 75°C HD models only )
Bathroom Controller:
Hot Water Delivery: 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 48, 50°C
Bath fill Delivery: 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48°C
Whilst hot water outlets are open the set temperature may be lowered. However the set temperature
cannot then be raised above 43°C. In addition transfer of 'priority' between controllers is not possible.
These are safety features.
Suggested temperatures are:
Kitchen 50°C ~ 55°C* Shower 37°C ~ 43°C, Bath fill 39°C ~ 45°C
* Temperature may not be available on all installations. Rinnai water heaters can be programmed to deliver higher temperatures
via the kitchen controller. Contact Rinnai for more details.
These temperatures are suggestions only. You may find higher or lower temperatures more
comfortable. Maintaining lower temperatures helps save energy. To obtain water temperatures lower
than 37°C simply add cold water.
Water controllers are an optional extra. 'Universal' and 'Deluxe' water controllers can be fitted.
Universal Controllers allow temperature selection only. Deluxe controllers allow temperature
selection, bath fill and have a clock function.
Water controllers allow the water temperature to be set from the various locations where they are
installed. The temperature selected will be available to all outlets.
Universal (MC-91-2A) and Deluxe (MC-100V & BC-100V) Controllers - available configuration:
A maximum of 4 water controllers can be fitted. Any combination of the deluxe, universal and wireless
controllers can be used with the following limitations.
Only ONE master controller can be installed. This can be MC-100V, a MC-91 (when programmed as
a master controller) or a MC502S (wireless) controller.
Up to TWO BC-100V water controllers can be installed.
The FOURTH water controller in any installation MUST BE a MC502S (wireless) or a MC-91.

WATER CONTROLLERS
Water Controllers are available as an optional extra. Universal and Deluxe Controller can be used
together and will function as described in the Operation Section of this manual. Please refer to page 1
to confirm the maximum number and combination of controllers that can be fitted.
NOTE
Other manufacturers water controllers are NOT compatible with Rinnai water
heaters. These water controllers must not be used with any Solar Boost water
heater.
Rinnai water controllers brought in from other countries are not compatible with
Rinnai appliances sold in New Zealand.
POSITIONING OF WATER CONTROLLERS
Water controllers must be installed in shaded and clean locations. They should be fitted out of reach
of children (suggested height from floor to be at least 1500 mm). BC-100V water controllers are water
resistant, however, durability is improved when positioned outside the shower recess. All deluxe water
controllers must be installed at least 400 mm above the highest part of a sink, basin or bath.
• Do not install water controllers near a heat source, such as a cook top, stove
or oven. Heat, steam, smoke and hot oil may cause damage.
NOTE
• Do not install water controllers in direct sunlight.
• The MC-100V water contoller MUST NOT be installed in a bathroom.
• Do not install water controllers outdoors unless protection from dust ingress
and sunlight are provided.
• Do not install water controllers against a metal wall unless the wall is earthed
in accordance with AS/NZS3000.
• Water controllers MUST NOT be installed where chemicals such as benzine,
alcohol, turpentine or other similar chemicals are in use.
POSITIONING CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE MC-100V WATER CONTROLLER.
The MC-100V uses a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for the digital
monitor. Light reflections can make the LCD difficult to see at
direct eye level.
For best results when Installing the MC-100V mount the water
controller lower than your eye-level to avoid these light
reflections.
WATER CONTROLLER CABLES
Water controllers operate at extra low voltage (12 Volts DC) which is supplied from the water heater.
Controllers come supplied with 15 m of electrical cable. The appliance end of the controller cables are
fitted with spade terminals. Extension cabling is available from Rinnai.
NOTE
Alternatively two core sheathed (double insulated) flex with minimum crosssectional area of 0.5 mm² may be used. Maximum individual cable runs should
not exceed 50 m.
Use the wall mounting bracket as a template to mark and drill 3
holes, locating the cable access hole as shown in Fig. 1.

WATER CONTROLLER INSTALLATION
CONNECTING COMMUNICATION CABLES TO THE WATER HEATER
Communication cables connect the water heater to water controllers and operate at an extra low
voltage (12 Volts DC) which is supplied from the water heater. Communication cables are supplied
with the water controllers (15m) and are fitted with spade terminals for connection to water heater. Up
to two cables can be connected directly to the cable connector at the water heater. Extension cables
are available from Rinnai. Alternatively, two core sheathed (double insulated) flex with minimum cross
sectional area of 0.5mm² may be used. Cable lengths must not exceed 20 metres.
CAUTION
DO NOT attempt to connect cables to the cable connector at the water heater unless
the electric power to the water heater is switched ‘off’ otherwise damage to electrical
components may occur.
To connect up to two cables to the cable connector
1. Isolate the electric power supply by switching the power point off and removing the power plug of
the water heater from the electric power socket.
2. Remove the retaining screw
A
of the cable connector at the base of the appliance.
3. Swing the cable connector door open and thread the cable through the weather seal of the cable
access hole B in the direction shown allowing sufficient cable length so that the sheath of the
cable can be secured with cable clamp C supplied with the transceiver.
4. Loosen screw terminals D and E and connect the cable spade connectors to these terminals
and re-tighten. Polarity is not important, either wire colour can be connected to either terminal.
5. Return the cable connector to the original position taking care not to damage cable wires in the
process and replace the retaining screw A .
