Sunbather Wireless SunSwitch
Operating Instructions.
TROUBLESHOOTING.
Manual Button does not work:
For the Manual switch to work there must be at least one successful temperature
transmission from the roof module after the unit is plugged in and switched on.
Transmissions require strong sunlight.
”00" in the display - no signal is being received.
There may be insufficient Sun. Or the distance between the transmitter and SunSwitch
may be too great [if so, then the transmitter must be moved closer.]
NO
The 6-digit numbers don’t match.
The two units may be mismatched or SunSwitch might be receiving signal from another
SunSwitch transmitter close by. Ring 1800 BATHER for a solution to this issue.
BA
TTE
RIE
“01" is an internal fail-safe procedure.
Sa
If SunSwitch does not receive any transmissions for a set period of time it will institute a
count down from its current temperature down to “01" and switch the pump off.
nd
Other Odd Numbers in the Screen:
If the roof transmitter has not sent a successful signal, the receiver will continue to
recall the last piece of information recorded on start-up or resetting. For example, the
last recorded roof temperature or signal strength may remain the same for hours until a
successful transmission has been received.

Start-up Diagnostic: All lights, displays and non-volatile memory are checked on
start-up. “EE” will flash in the display if a fault is found.
Pool Sensor Fault Diagnosis: “Er” display indicates a faulty pool sensor. Cold
sensor is non-polar 4.7K Ohm at 25oC thermistor with these temp/resistance ohm
readings: 10oC - 9535, 20oC - 5902, 30oC - 3770, 40oC - 2480.

Readout Calibration: To fine tune the temperature readings hold TEMP SET button
down for 10 seconds until the display flashes. Pressing the up or down arrow buttons will
change the units base settings one degree each press. While in standby, the display reads
the last recorded temperature.
Service Lock-Out Mode: Hold AUTO & MAN buttons down for 10 seconds (LO
appears in display). Controller will remain in Lock-Out for 2 hours before reverting to
normal automatic operation.

SUNSWITCH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.
Step 1
Fix wall mounting bracket on a vertical wall protected from direct rain and sun.
Step 2
Locate Roof Temperature Transmitter adjacent to the solar collector.
It must receive similar sun to the solar collector but not be in contact with it.
Effective transmission range is up to 150 metres depending on surrounding
buildings. It is recommended that roof transmissions are confirmed before
fixing the transmitter permanently in place - just in case it needs to be moved
for best transmission.
Step 3
A Pool ‘Cold’ Sensor ‘barb and grommet’ is provided. Drill a 13mm hole
and install it into a section of pipework prior to the solar pump, i.e. on the
intake side of the pump. Insert the 1.8m Pool Sensor cable into the well.
Step 4
Connect the Pool Sensor to the colour-matched connections on the controller.
Then slide unit into mounting bracket.
Step 5
Plug in solar circulation pump and switch ON. Set the Pool Temp to 30oC for
the initial start up.
A
NOTES: [a] Joins in sensor cables must be soldered and waterproofed.
[b] Installation Option 2 requires the Time Clock to be set for daylight hours.
[c] SunSwitches are NOT designed to switch DC motors or Multi-speed
pumps as damage may occur to the electronics.
[d] For any repairs simply return to the place of purchase.

SETTING UP THE WIRELESS LINK.
Step I Ensure installation steps 1-5 have been completed and that the transmitter is
in bright sunlight.
Step II Hold the AUTO button down for 10 seconds until the alphanumeric display
scrolls the SunSwitch serial number. This is 6 digit number.
Step III Press the
button once and the 6-digit Roof Transmitter serial number will
appear if it is the same number you have successfully linked the transmitter to
the SunSwitch.
A
Step IV To check signal strength. Immediately after Step III, press the
button again
to see the strength of the last transmission [4.8 means 48% signal strength].
Step V Press AUTO to set the SunSwitch to automatic operation.
NOTE: Press AUTO at any point during the set up to return to the start.
PATIENCE IS ESSENTIAL.
When changing settings remember transmissions only occur every 10 seconds.
SunSwitch is programmed to ignore repeated or random instructions.

PRIMARY FUNCTIONS
ENERGY SAVING “ES” MODE:
To Switch ON:
Push the ON/OFF button once to switch the unit ON (pool temp reading will then display).
When the Set Temperature has been reached, the letters “ES” and the pool
temperature will alternate in the display.
For Automatic Operation:
Press the AUTO button once for fully automatic operation (status light will then display).
This is not an error message - it indicates “Energy Saving Mode” has been achieved.
In this mode the controller automatically switches the solar pump to heat the pool when
weather conditions are favorable. The Status light pulses when the pump is on standby
and remains on when the pump is running.
To Select the Desired Temperature:
Press the SET TEMP button down and scroll up
until the desired pool temperature is displayed.
or down
with the arrow buttons
The display reverts back to reading the pool water temperature after 5 seconds.
While in “ES”mode the pump will NOT run for 2.5 hours. After 2.5 hours the pump will
run for 3 minutes to check the pool water temperature and then revert to normal
operation.
If there is insufficient sun at the end of the 2.5 hour period for the transmitter to send a
successful signal, “ES”will remain in the display until a successful signal has been
received. This may not happen until the following day.
ALPHANUMERIC DISPLAY DIAGNOSTIC MESSAGES:
The pool set temperature can be read anytime by pressing the SET TEMP button.
Energy Saving Mode.
SECONDARY FUNCTIONS:
MANUAL:
Press MAN to run the solar pump (flashing status light indicates Manual mode). Unit
will not run on Manual if no roof transmission has been received.
Service lock-Out.

Press AUTO to exit Manual mode or wait 30 minutes for unit to revert back to Automatic.
For continuous Manual operation, hold the MAN button down for 10 seconds. “CO” will
appear in the display. Press AUTO to revert back to Automatic mode.
WINTER MODE:
Press ON/OFF for 10 seconds (“W” will appear in the display) and the solar pump will
run for 10 minutes each day, from the time of setting. Press ON/OFF again to exit
winter mode.
ROOF/POOL TEMPERATURE:
Press and hold the Up Arrow
for 3 seconds to display the roof sensor temperature for
5 seconds. The display will show “00" if no roof temperature signal is received.
