INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
Remove QE1/QE2 from packing and prepare it for use on fully pumped or for gravity hot water systems.
For gravity hot water systems no action is required.
For fully pumped systems the switch
located at the rear of the “QE2” must
be moved to the rightinto the “fully pumped” position.
NB • Installation must be carried out by a qualified electrician and conform to current IEE Regulations.
NB • Mains supply must be suitably fused (usually 3 amps) and provision made for Class A circuit disconnection.
NB • Control is suitable for fixed wiring only.
NB • If the unit is to be surface wired:
- Remove backplate by slackening fixing screw and separate the plate from the timeswitch
- Remove the knock-out from the backplate and the timeswitch
- Screw backplate to wall with counter sunk No. 8. Wood screws, using fixing holes provided.
NB • For socket box mounting:
- Use the centre two holes and fit backplate to box using machine screws
- To ensure clearance for the down flap, ensure that there is a minimum of 4 cm clearance
under the unit when mounted
