INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
APPLICATION
SPECIFICATIONS
The PC8900 Control Panel provides 24 Vac energy saving
control for a heating and cooling system, while providing
reliable, precise temperature control, ventilation control,
humidity control, programmable fan control and air filter/
cleaner status information.
Temperature Setting Range:
45°F to 88°F (7°C to 31°C).
The PC8900 must be used with a W8900 Remote Module.
The PC8900 includes a SYSTEM light, which is lit when
the heating or cooling system is running, and a CHECK
light, which lights as a prompt to check messages on the
CHECK list.
These models will replace most heating/cooling system
thermostats. Check Table 1 to make sure the thermostat is
compatible with the intended system.

3. Be sure that there is good air circulation at average
temperature at the chosen location. Avoid the
following locations because they can introduce
errors in temperature measurements.
• Hot areas caused by:
• Concealed pipes or ducts.
• Drafts from fireplaces or other heat sources.
• Convection or radiant heat from the sun or
electrical equipment.
• Cold areas caused by:
• Concealed pipes or ducts.
• Drafts from windows and doors.
• Unheated areas on the other side of the wall
location.
• Dead air areas:
• Behind doors, furniture and curtains.
• In corners and alcoves.
4. Mark the area on the wall where the PC8900 or
outlet box will be mounted.
5. Run cable to a hole at the selected wall location.
Pull approximately 3 inches of wire through the
opening. Color-coded 18-gauge thermostat wire is
recommended.
6. Position wiring plate on wall.
7. Level the wiring plate, for appearance only, using
the posts on top of the wiring plate. Device will
function properly even when not level.
8. Mark three mounting holes using a pencil.
9. Remove wiring plate from wall and drill 3/16 inch
holes in wall, if drywall, as marked. For firmer
material such as plaster or wood, drill 7/32 inch
holes. Gently tap anchors provided into drilled holes
until flush with the wall. See Fig. 2.
10. Position wiring plate over holes in wall or outlet box,
pulling wires through wiring opening. Loosely insert
two mounting screws into holes.
11. Tighten mounting screws.
INSTALLATION
When Installing this Product…
1. Read these instructions carefully. Failure to follow
instructions can damage the product or cause a
hazardous condition.
2. Check the ratings on the product and the compatibility in Table 1 to make sure the product is suitable for
your application.
3. Installer must be a trained, experienced service
technician.
4. After completing installation, use these instructions
to check out product operation.
CAUTION
Disconnect power supply before wiring to prevent
electrical shock or equipment damage.
Location and Mounting
NOTE: The following location guidelines apply only if a
remote sensor is not part of the installation. If a
remote sensor is installed, the PC8900 can be
installed in any convenient location, with these
guidelines applying to the sensor location.
Locate the PC8900 where it will not be subjected to
tampering.
1. Choose a location on an inside wall about 5 ft (1.5m)
above the floor. A horizontally mounted standard
2 in. x 4 in. (51 mm x 102 mm) outlet box can also
be used at the selected location for the PC8900.
2. Be sure that the wire distance between the PC8900
and the W8900 does not exceed 200 feet.

NOTE: If the old thermostat has left marks on the wall
that are not covered by the PC8900, order part
no. 205224A Wall Cover Plate to mount between
the wall and the PC8900.
CAUTION
Disconnect power supply before connecting wiring
to prevent electrical shock or equipment damage.
All wiring must comply with applicable electrical codes,
ordinances, and regulations.
1. Loosen the terminal screws and insert one wire
beneath each numbered terminal (1,2,3,4). Note the
color of wire that is attached to each terminal
number to later match the colors with the terminals
on the W8900 Remote Module. See Fig. 3 and 4 for
technique and wiring diagram. Four wires are
required at the thermostat to assure operation.
2. Securely tighten screw terminals.
3. Push excess wire back into the hole. Plug the hole
with nonhardening caulk, putty or insulation to
prevent drafts from affecting PC8900 operation.

WIRING
CAUTION
Keep wiring at least one foot away from large
inductive loads such as motors, line starters,
lightning ballasts and large power distribution
panels. Failure to follow these wiring practices can
introduce electrical interference (noise), which can
cause erratic system operation. Use shielded cable
to reduce interference when rerouting is not
possible. Ground the shielded cable to the GND
terminal on the W8900.
FOR WRAPAROUND

7/16 in. (11mm).
IMPORTANT
Erratic temperature readings can occur as a
result of any of the wiring practices described
below. These practices must be avoided to
assure proper operation. Use shielded cable to
reduce interference when rerouting of wiring is
not possible.
FOR STRAIGHT
INSERTION STRIP
5/16 in. (8mm).

Fig. 3. Proper Wiring Technique.
a. Do not route thermostat wiring with building
power wiring, next to control contactors or
near light dimming circuits, electric motors or
welding equipment.
b. Avoid poor wiring connections.
c. Avoid intermittent or missing building earth
ground.

Mounting the PC8900 on the Wiring Plate
W8900
To mount the PC8900 on the wiring plate, engage the tabs
on the wiring plate with the back of the PC8900 and then
press the PC8900 to latch.
OPERATION
The PC8900 is not a typical thermostat. It senses temperature and humidity conditions in the living space and
transfers the information to the W8900 Remote Module.
The W8900 activates the proper equipment based on
room conditions and programmed settings.
