Please take a few moments to read the brief instructions and familiarize yourself with the various functions in order to obtain maximum benefit from this
truly unique electronic control.
GENERAL INFORMATION
The thermostat normally displays room temperature,
mode of operation and whether heating is currently
on. The two buttons on the front of the unit allow
complete control of the equipment.
Raising or lowering the setpoints in heating is as simple as pushing a button. In addition, you may choose
to display the temperature in °F or °C.

POWER FAILURES
Your thermostat employs the latest developments in
solid state electronic technology.
One of the unique features of your thermostat is that
no battery is required to maintain your selected setpoints in the event of a power loss as the memory is
unaffected by power failures of any duration.
When power is restored, the thermostat will continue
operating as if the power had never been off.
TEMPERATURE ACCURACY
Full temperature accuracy will be realized only after
the thermostat has been installed and powered for at
least one hour.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION
LOCATION
To ensure proper operation, the thermostat should be
mounted on an inside wall in a frequently occupied
area of the building. In addition, its position must be
at least 18" (46cm) from any outside wall, and approximately 5' (1.5m) above the floor in a location with
freely circulating air of an average temperature.
BE SURE TO AVOID THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS:
- behind doors or in corners where freely circulating
air is unavailable
- where direct sunlight or radiant heat from appliances might affect control operation
- on an outside wall
- adjacent to, or in line with, conditioned air discharge grilles, stairwells, or outside doors
- where its operation may be affected by steam or
water pipes or warm air stacks in an adjacent partition space, or by an unheated/uncooled area
behind the thermostat
- where its operation will be affected by the supply
air of an adjacent unit
- near sources of electrical interference such as arcing relay contacts
1. Insert a flat blade screwdriver or coin 1/8" into the
slot located in the bottom center of the thermostat
case and twist 1/4 turn. When you feel or hear a click,
grasp the case from the bottom two corners and separate from the subbase as shown in the diagram at
the right. Some models require more force than others when separating due to the number of terminals
on the subbase.
2. Swing the thermostat out from the bottom.
3. Lift the thermostat up and off the subbase.
4. Place the rectangular opening in the subbase over the
equipment control wires protruding from the wall and,
using the subbase as a template, mark the location of
the two mounting holes (exact vertical mounting is
necessary only for appearance).
5. Use the supplied anchors and screws for mounting on
drywall or plaster; drill two 3/16" (5mm) diameter
holes at the marked locations; use a hammer to tap
the nylon anchors in flush to the wall surface and fasten subbase using the supplied screws. (Do not overtighten!)
6. Connect the wires from your system to the thermostat terminals as shown in the wiring diagrams.
Carefully dress the wires so that any excess is
pushed back into the wall cavity or junction box.
Ensure that the wires are flush to the plastic subbase.
The access hole should be sealed or stuffed to prevent drafts from affecting the thermostat.
