INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
This heater must be permanently installed and hard wired by a licensed electrician in accordance with local electrical
codes. Assembly procedure must be performed with no electrical power to unit.
Step 1: Check UL/CE label on heater for proper voltage.
Step 2: Follow supplied wiring instructions
WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
The heater is drilled and threaded for standard 1/2" conduit fittings. The installing electrician will need to provide the
appropriate rigid metallic, flexible or liquid tight conduit for the installation location.
Use only copper wire suitable for 90°C.
Observe local electrical code regulations.
OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Step 1: Heater must be mounted with reflector angled down.
Step 2: All electrical connections must be in compliance with the National Electric Code and local codes for outdoor wiring.
Step 3: Use only wiring components UL/CE listed for outdoor use with IP X 4 minimum rating.
MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Before performing any maintenance, power must be disconnected and the heater cool to touch.
Heater housing, reflector and heating element can be rinsed with a hose or wiped down with isopropyl alcohol, acetone,
or glass cleaner, using a clean, scratch-free rag or paper towel. Any oxidation, surface rust or discoloration can be
removed with stainless steel cleaner or metal polish on the bare metal surface.
Make sure all water, solvents or cleaners are removed and the heater is dry before reconnecting power.
mounting instructions
These models may be chain or bracket mounted to any ceiling or horizontal surface. Installation must be such that 18"
minimum clearance is maintained around the heater on 4 sides and 36" directly in front. 6" of clearance provided by
mounting brackets is required behind the plane of the face.
“T” SLOT
Adjustable wall/ceiling brackets are furnished with all SL-series heaters. Brackets have positive stops at 30°and 60°.
When used, they allow heater to be fastened to wall and then tipped down to 60°; for ceiling mount, tilted to 30° max.
Brackets are positioned along a “T” slot on back of unit. You must maintain a minimum distance between the mounting
brackets to ensure a stable installation.

Heater can also be hung in a horizontal position using chains or
custom brackets. Heater must be level, but can be rotated around
its horizontal axle.

NOTE: DO NOT mount the heater on a vertical axis. Such installation will reduce the life of the element and will
automatically void the product’s warranty. Heater must be installed with the quartz tube horizontally level. For maximum
tube life, use a level to find the optimum position for the heater’s body. Always maintain the minimum clearances from
the heater body to any combustible materials.

REPLACEMENT ELEMENT INSTALLATION
Remove two screws from one end of trim and slide trim off opposite end to remove. Remove end reflectors. Open
element clips at each end of the heater and carefully install the quartz tube. Remove one nut from end of element. Install
wire by sliding high temperature ring terminal on to element screw and replace nut.
NOTE: Hold ceramic element firmly while tightening nut to prevent damage to element. Nut should be tightened snug. A
loose connection can cause the element to short or fail prematurely. Connect other side of element in like manner. Close
element clips over tube. Replace end reflectors.
Connect the High Temperature Stainless Ring Terminal on the wire ends
to the element studs located on both ends of the tube. Use a thin 11/32"
wrench to hold inside nut. Nuts must make a tight connection.

GENERAL NOTES
1. INFRATECH QUARTZ TUBE ELECTRIC HEATERS are furnished with wall/ ceiling mount swivel brackets. These
brackets may be discarded when the heater is hung with chains or other special bracketing.
2. See sales literature and price list for full listing of models, descriptions, amperages, and voltages. At times, especially
when the mounting height must be quite low, an increased number of smaller heaters can help prevent overheating.
3. Heaters up to 15 AMPS can be used with a simple INF controller. This low cost controller, which is actually an infinite
switch, gently pulses the heat on and off.
4. For comfort heating, the best solution is to heat from two sides rather than from just one side. However, there are times
when this is not practical.
5. Areas covered are approximate dimensions and will vary depending on prevailing conditions and personal comfort levels.

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
WHAT TO DO
Heater does not glow
Check supply voltage to confirm it matches voltage of heating element.
Low heat output
A 240 V element connected to 110 V or 208 V will warm, but not glow orange, or
generate sufficient heat for typical applications. (Matching your Voltage is extremely
important).
If element is visibly orange, but there is insufficient heat, refer to the areas covered,
with respect to conditions and mounting heights.
Replace or clean dirty or non reflective reflectors.
Heater does not work
Disconnect power and check element with Ohm meter for continuity. If there is any
continuity across the bulb, the problem is in the wiring/controls.
Check that there is proper voltage to the heater.
Check that the control/switch is working.
Check main power circuit breaker.
Check wiring for a loose connection or burned wire.

LOCATION SUGGESTIONS
Unless heaters are installed over 12 ft. high, it is generally recommended that all radiant heaters be mounted on an
angle to assure that radiant warmth is distributed from the sides rather than straight down on the heads and shoulders
of the people being warmed.
OUTDOORS
· When outdoors, hang heater under protective roof or weather
cover whenever possible.
· Even though heater is all-weather construction, it will last
longer and look better if it is protected from rainand snow.
RECOMMENDED POSITIONING
· Angle fixture 30º to 60º from horizontal face down.
· Best angle is approximately 45º.
INSTALLATION DIRECTION
· Install fixture to heat the area from the “cold side” if possible.
This helps compensate for increased body heat losses due to
exposure.
· Warm floors reradiate heat. Warmer air rises from floor. Some
heat reflects from floor. Mounting a heater directly over a table
or other obstruction will block the energy, primarily heating the
object. It is best to move heater to the side, allowing complete
body and floor coverage.
