OVERVIEW AND SUPPORTED FEATURES
The RCS TR16 and TR40 are retrofit-able RS-485 communicating thermostats that use a 2-piece installation
method to leverage existing HVAC wiring for easy install. Each thermostat consists of two parts: a wall display
unit, which resembles a typical thermostat; and a HVAC Control unit. The WDU is installed using existing
HVAC wires at the desired location, and connected to the HVAC Unit back box via the existing 4-wire run. All
new wire connections can then be made the HVAC unit without running new wires to each thermostat location.
The TS16 and TS40 are variants of the TR16/TR40 that can be used with an HVAC Zone Controller that adds
independent zone control via the use of associated dampers for improved efficiency and distribution. See RCS
for full details.
Independent TR16/TR40 installs, and installs using the TS16/TS40 with ZCV series zone controllers are
compatible with external RS-485 or RS-232 control from g!, and provide reliable two-way control and feedback.
Note: The TR/TS60 is the replacement for the TR/TS40. All steps and notations in this document referencing
the TR/TS40 apply to the TR/TS60. Setup the TR/TS60 exactly as you would a TR/TS40.
RCS THERMOSTATS SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING FEATURES:
Temperature Control: Temperature control can be managed by schedules tied to house modes or by manual
control based on time (Timed Temporary Hold, Temporary Hold and Permanent Hold).
Mode Control: The climate system can be set to run in the following heating and cooling modes: Heat only,
Cool only, Auto Heat Cool (TR40 only) or Off. In addition, systems that have a fan can be set to run in
Automatic mode or Continuous mode.
History View: The history view shows the inside temperature, outside temperature, unit run and fan run times,
and cooling and heating setpoints.
Schedule Control: Multiple schedules may be set up, and are automatically tied to the house mode.
Zone Control: Multi-zone “Smart Damper/Vent” systems using the RCS ZCV series of zone controllers are
compatible with g!.
Remote Sensors: An Outside Temperature Sensor or sensors that replace the room sensor can be read from
RCS climate systems.

COMMON MISTAKES
1. Programming two thermostats with the same address.
2. Incorrect serial type setting. The RCS Thermostat Network Communication Device has a drop down
for RS-232 or RS-485. Set this appropriately: RS-485 connections should be set to RS-485 HalfDuplex, RS-232 connections should be set to RS-232.
