Lightstat Installation and Operation Manual
TG Series Thermostats for Heat/Cool Applications
24 Volt A.C. Power Robbing, Temperature Limiting Thermostat with
Optional Automatic Temperature Setback
No Common Wire Needed.
Read instructions carefully before attempting to install, operate or service the Lightstat
electronic setback thermostat. Failure to comply with instructions could result in personal
injury and/or property damage. Retain instructions for future reference.
Description
The Lightstat thermostat saves energy and
operating costs by using Owner specified factory
limited temperature ranges which prevent excessive
use of heating or cooling equipment. These limits
cannot be changed by the user. The unit requires no
batteries and no programming or reset in the event of
a power failure. Optionally, the Lightstat thermostat
can set back the temperature based on light level in
the space. A dark space is considered unoccupied
and will turn the heating and cooling setpoints back
for better savings.
Thermostats described are available in Heat/Cool
(TGHC) and Heat Pump (TGHP) models.

cause a hazardous condition.
General Safety Information:
Do not use this product on circuits exceeding 30 VAC. Higher voltage will damage this control
and could cause electrical shock or personal injury.

Installer must be a trained, experienced service technician familiar with the system this
product will control.
Disconnect all power before beginning installation to prevent electrical shock or
equipment damage.
Control voltage and current ratings must fall within the range outlined in
“specifications.”
Verify that the relay load does not exceed 1 amp. Excessive load will damage the solid
state switch.
Thermostat Placement:
Mount your thermostat vertically about 5 feet above the floor in an area that has good air
circulation at average room temperature. Be sure to locate the thermostat where it will be
exposed to lights that are normally on when the room is occupied.
Locate the thermostat away from:
•
•
•
•
Outside walls and drafts
Doors, windows, and direct sunlight
Supply air ducts, radiators and convectors
Applicances that produce heat or cool air

Check the equipment ratings on the system this thermostat will control, to make sure
the thermostat is appropriate for the application.
Check the system voltage and verify it is between 24 and 30 VAC.
Turn the sytem power OFF before you begin the installation procedure.
Note the color of the wires and the terminals they are connected to. Some thermostats
may have to be removed from the wall to determine wiring connections.
Remove the old thermostat from the wall, making sure the wires do not fall back into the
wall.
Make sure the thermostat switch is in the OFF position.
NOTE: TGHP thermostats may have power even while switch is in the OFF
position. (if the display can be read with the switch in the off position, the
thermostat has power)
Set DIP switches (see page 7).
Attach the wires as shown in the model specific wiring diagrams (see page 6).
Attach the thermostat to the wall using the hardware supplied. Note: The thermostat
does not have to be level in order to operate properly, but it should be level for good
appearance.
Turn the system power ON and the thermostat switch to the ON position as desired.
Note: Your Lightstat may come from the factory with fixed light sensitivity. This means that under normal lighting,
the thermostat will heat/cool your space to the comfort slide setting. Under low light conditions, the thermostat will
set the temperature back. A green setback light turns ON, indicating the thermostat is in the Setback mode.
Adjusting (optional) light sensor:

Open the thermostat cover and locate
the green setback light at the upper right
of the thermostat and the light sensor
below it.
Cover the light sensor with your
finger. The green setback light should
turn ON after 3 seconds, indicating the
thermostat is in Setback mode. Remove
your finger and the green light should
turn OFF indicating the thermostat is in
Day mode.
The Light Sensitivity knob located at
the lower right of the thermostat
controls the amount of light necessary
to keep the thermostat in the Day mode.
Turn the knob full clockwise (towards
bright) to put the thermostat in the
Setback mode. The green light should be on after 3 seconds.
Now slowly turn the knob counterclockwise (towards dim) until the green setback light
just goes out.
Close the thermostat cover. Cover the light sensor and verify the green light turns on.
Remove the covering over the sensor and verify the green setback light turns off. If it
does not turn off, slightly adjust the light sensitivity knob clockwise and re-verify
operation. Your thermostat is now adjusted to your current light level.

Adjusting (optional) night setback setting:
Your Lightstat may come from the factory with a fixed night setback. That means when your
Lightstat thermostat is in the Setback mode, it will automatically set the heating/cooling back
a predetermined number of degrees from the comfort slide setting. If your model has setback
options, there will be a night setback switch on the back or in the lower right hand corner of
the thermostat. Choosing less setback may be more comfortable, but will offer less energy
conservation and savings. See page 11 for more detail on DIP switch settings and setback
features.
Note: When the green setback light goes on, the display will briefly flash showing the night
setback temperature. When the green setback light turns off, the display will flash showing the
comfort slide setting temperature.
Some thermostats may be equipped with a “slide sensitive” setback. (refer to model specific features to know if your thermostat has this functionality). If the temperature slide is not
moved for an amount of time specified by the customer (and preprogrammed at the factory),
then the thermostat is in setback. To bring the thermostat out of setback, simpley move the
temperature slide.
Note: Typically, moving the temperature slide will show the current thermostat setpoint. For
slide sensitive setback models, the setback setpoint cannot be viewed on the dsiplay because
touching the slide will bring the thermostat out of setback.
Adjusting the temperature setting:
Flashing dot indicates time delay
Note: There is a minimum run time of 45 seconds once
the heating/cooling turns on to prevent short cycling. Once
the heating/cooling turns off, it will remain off for at least
45 seconds.
Indicates a call for Heat or Cool
Note: Any time the comfort slide is moved, the display will illuminate and the flashing
number indicates the current setpoint temperature.

2.
3.

5.
Make sure the system power is ON.
Move the thermostat power switch to the ON position.
Adjust the comfort slide either up or down until the flashing number reaches the desired
setting.
Once you have stopped moving the comfort slide the display will change from a flashing
display to a steady display. A steady display indicates actual room temperature.
A steady dot in the upper right corner of the display will indicate if heating/cooling
system is ON.
4
Basic Operation:
• Steady temperature display indicates actual room temperature.
• Set temperature with comfort slide.
• Display will illuminate briefly when temperature slide is moved.
• Flashing display indicates comfort slide setting.
• Solid dot in upper right corner of display indicates a call for heat or cool.
• Flashing dot in middle of display indicates that a time delay is in effect.
• Temperature range and setbacks are programmed at the factory.
• Night setback is automatic when there is a drop in the room light level.
• Setback mode is indicated by a green light.
Check the inside cover for your model’s temperature range and setback.
Application Notes:
When connecting the TG series (power robbing) thermostats to a furnace control board or
electronic ignition model, one of (3) potential issues may occur.
1. When not calling for heat, the furnace falsely starts its heating cycle.
2. When calling for heat, the furnace is “chattering” or does not complete its heat cycle.
3. The display goes blank at times.
If the installation exhibits any of these issues, we recommend that you add a 200 ohm
(minimimum 20 watt) resistor from any output terminal to the C (common) terminal at the front
of the furnace control board, ignition module, or zone control valve.
Below is a wiring diagram showing a resistor placed from the W (heating) terminal to C
(Common). Other terminals may be used.
It is recommended that the resistor be mounted so that it is not touching anything and that
there is adequate ventilation around it as it will normally get warm. A 200 Ohm, 20 Watt
resistor is included with a metal lead from one end and a white wire whip from the other to
allow flexibility during installation. The resistor has no polarity.
