Important Safety Advice
Electrical
When using electrical appliances, basic precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire,
electrical shock, and injury to persons, including the
following:
IMPORTANT – If the heater is installed in a room
containing a bath or shower, it must be so installed that
switches and other controls cannot be touched by a
person using a bath or shower.
WARNING - DO NOT USE THIS HEATER IN THE IMMEDIATE
SURROUNDINGS OF A BATH, A SHOWER OR A SWIMMING
POOL.
Do not use outdoors.
Do not locate the heater immediately below a fixed socket
outlet or connection box.
Do not cover the heater. NEVER cover or obstruct in any
way the heat outlet slots at the top of the heater or the
air inlet slots in the base of the heater. Do not place
material or garments on the heater, or obstruct the air
circulation around the heater, for instance by curtains
or pushing furniture up against the heater, as this could
cause overheating and a fire risk.
The heater carries the Warning symbol indicating
that it must not be covered.
WARNING – THE SURFACES OF THIS HEATER CAN BE HOT.
Momentary contact with any part of the heater should
not cause injury. However, aged or infirm persons or
young children should not be left unsupervised in the
vicinity of the heater unless a suitable guard is fitted.
This appliance is not intended for use by children or
other persons without assistance or supervision if their
physical, sensory or mental capabilities prevent them
from using it safely. Children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
Note that due care and consideration must be taken
when using this heater in series with a thermal control,
a program controller, a timer or any other device that
switches on the heat automatically, since a fire risk
exists when the heater is accidentally covered or
displaced.
If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or service agent or a similarly qualified
person in order to avoid a hazard.
WARNING: Servicing & product repairs should only be
undertaken by the manufacturers approved service
agent or a similarly qualified person, using only exact
manufacturer approved spare parts.
WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
The electrical installation must be carried out by a competent
electrician, and be in strict accordance with the current I.E.E.
regulations for Electrical Equipment in Buildings.
The heater is fitted with a length of flexible cable type H05VVF size 3 x 1.0mm2 on models PLX 500 - 2000 and size 3 x
1.5mm2 on PLX 3000 models, for connection to the fixed
wiring of the premises through a suitable connection box
positioned adjacent to the heater.
The supply circuit to the heater must incorporate a double
pole isolating switch having a contact separation of at least
3mm.
Supplementary Earth Bonding
Should Equipotential Earth Bonding be required the earthing
conductor in the supply cord is deemed to provide the
supplementary bonding connection (see Regulation 544.2.5,
17th Edition I.E.E. Wiring Regulations).
General
NOTE: The PLX Convector is designed for wall mounting on
the wall brackets supplied. The wall brackets supplied with
the appliance must be used. It should only be operated when
in the upright position as shown.
All models are splashproof to IP24 standard.
Models PLX…TI are fitted with a 24 hour programmable
timer.
Models PLX…TX are fitted with a 7 Day programmable timer.
Models PLX…NC are fitted with no controls, for use with
external thermostatic or programming controllers.
Before connecting the heater check that the supply voltage is
the same as that stated on the heater.
Please note that lit cigarettes, candles and oil burners,
combined with the convection effect of electric heaters
can cause soot deposits to build up on the surface directly
above and to the sides of the heater. This is not the fault of
the heater. Extensive burning of candles or smoking in the
operating environment of this product can produce heavy
discoloration within a few months of use.
Wall Mounting
Thermostat Operation
IMPORTANT – The wall brackets supplied with the appliance
must be used. The heater should be positioned observing
the minimum clearances stated around the heater - see
Fig. 1.
The heater is fitted with an adjustable thermostat enabling
the room temperature to be controlled by adjusting the setting
accordingly. The * setting represents a room temperature of
approximately 5°C and may be used for protection against
frost. Higher temperature settings range from 1-6 (max.)
creating a room temperature of approximately 30°C.
DO NOT locate the heater immediately below a fixed socket
outlet or connection box.

Remove wall mounting bracket from the back of the
heater by depressing the spring latch at the top of
each bracket - see Fig. 2.
Fix the wall bracket securely to the wall through the
four screw holes provided.
Present the heater to the wall bracket, and engage
lower slots in the back with bracket.
Raise the heater to upright position and push the
heater onto brackets to engage top latch.
A neon indicator light glows when the appliance is actually
heating.
Switch on the heater and turn the thermostat knob to mark 6
opposite the indicator mark (located on centre right of the
knob - see Fig. 4 & 5), and set selector switch to full heat
output to warm the room rapidly. When the room temperature
has reached the desired level, turn the thermostat knob back
slowly until the thermostat just clicks off. The heater will then
maintain the room temperature at the chosen level, provided
that the correct size of heater has been selected for the room
to be heated.
NOTE – Should your heater fail to come on when the
thermostat knob is at a low setting, this may be due to the
room temperature being higher than the thermostat setting.

Safety - Overheat protection
Set the timer switch to
position. The panel will now operate
during set ‘ON’ periods under the control of the thermostat.
For your safety this appliance is fitted with a thermal cut-out.
In the event that the product overheats for some reason, the
cut-out prevents excessive temperatures on the product by
cutting the power to the heater. Once the heater has cooled
down, it will reset automatically, it will continue to cycle on
and off automatically until the reason for overheating is
removed.

1. Using your finger tip or the tip of
a pencil, push in as many segments
as necessary around the dial,
according to the times you don’t
require heat – see Fig. 6. Each
segment pushed in switches the
heater OFF for that part of the hour.
All other segments will be ‘ON’.
Cleaning
Before commencing cleaning, unplug the heater and allow it
to cool. Disconnect the electricity supply to the appliance.
2. You can select as many ‘ON’ periods as you like, within
the 24-hour day. The settings will repeat every day until
changed.
The outside can be cleaned by wiping it over with a soft damp
cloth and then dried. Do not use abrasive cleaning powders
or furniture polish, as this can damage the surface finish.
3. To change ‘ON’ and ‘OFF’ times, simply push in any ‘ON’
segments you wish to cancel and pull out new ‘ON’
segments as required.
To release heater from the wall bracket for cleaning or
redecoration, depress latch on both brackets (see Fig. 2)
and hinge forward.

Energy Saving Tips
Other Energy Saving Tips for Around the Home
The energy we use to heat, light and power our homes
contributes over a quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions, the
principle contributor to climate change.
1. Lights
Around half the energy used in the home is for heating and
hot water, so using your heating system efficiently will not
only help the environment, but also save you money !
Energy efficiency tips for heating and hot water
1. Don’t set the temperature too high…
By reducing the thermostat setting by just 1ºC can reduce
your energy use by as much as 10%. And if you’re going
away for the winter, leave the thermostat on the frost protection
setting to provide protection from freezing at a minimum cost.
Turn off lights whenever you leave a room for more than ten
minutes.
Use low-energy bulbs wherever you can as they use less
than a quarter of the electricity used by ordinary light bulbs
and last ten times longer!
2. Cooking
Use the right size pan for the food and cooker hob.
Keep saucepan lids on - this enables you to turn down the
heat.
Boil water for cooking in a kettle.
2. Use it where you need it…
Set the appropriate temperature on your heaters for the room
they are in; for example, leave the thermostat on a heater in a
spare bedroom on a lower setting.
3. Use it when you need it…
Use heaters fitted with timers or linked to central controllers
to turn the heating on only when you need it and automatically
switch it off when you don’t.
4. Curtains…
Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through
the windows.
5. Windows…
Nearly 25% of heat loss can occur through poorly insulated
frames and single glazing. If you can’t afford to double glaze
all your windows, go for the rooms you heat most.
6. Treat your hot water tank...give it a jacket
An insulating jacket for hot water tanks only costs a few pounds
and pays for itself within months. Fit one that’s at least 75mm
(3") thick and you could save £10-£15 a year.
7. Water …
Use a shower if you have one to save time, money and water.
Don’t set the thermostat too high on your water heater - 60oC/
140oF is usually adequate for bathing and washing.
Put the plug in when running hot water in your sink - leaving
hot taps running is both wasteful and expensive.
Ensure dripping taps are repaired quickly. In just one day,
you could waste enough water to fill a bath.
The product complies with the European Safety Standards EN60335-2-30 and the European Standard Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC) EN55014, EN60555-2 and EN60555-3. These cover the essential requirements of EEC Directives 2006/95/EC and 2004/108/EC
