Warning : TURN OFF POWER TO HEATING SYSTEM AT THE MAIN POWER PANEL TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK. Keep air vents of thermostat clean and free from obstructions. 1) What kind of heating system do you have ? The thermostat has been factory set to proportionally control electric baseboards, radiant systems and convectors. Since proportionnal control uses a fast commutation rate (120/min) it is not compatible with fan equipped systems. You can change the control mode to make it compatible with fan equipped convectors. In that case, slide switch #1 (SW1) located on the back of the thermostat at position « ON », than press on the « reset » button by using a fine probe. Push the exces s wire back into the electrical box to prevent interference with the thermostat. Fix the thermostat using two (2) 6-32 screws 1 3/4 inches long. Once the thermostat is properly installed, return power to heating system. All cables and connections must conform to the local electrical code. In normal use, the thermostat's housing temperature can reach 35 to 45 °C. Special service CO/ALR solderless connectors must be used when connecting with aluminium controlers. 4) Batteries Your thermostat is provided with two (2) back-up batteries. Those batteries will protect the clock and your programs against power failure. Batteries are used only during power failure and provide 500 hrs of protection. To install the back-up batteries, press the latch on the battery compartment and lift off the cover. Insert the batteries and respect the polarity. Replace the cover. To check batteries condition, press BATT key. The display must show BATT OK. If LO BATT is displayed, change the batteries. If you have a new thermostat and the LO BATT indicator is displayed, check the batteries polarity or stretch out the contact on the battery cover. 1.5 volt battery type no 357 or 76 WARNING : Never let children play with batteries. Swallowing a button cell battery could be fatal. 5) First power-up 2) Mounting thermostat wallplate Wallplate is used when the thermostat is to be mounted close to a door frame or any other obstacle. It is also useful to level the thermostat. When power is applied for the first time, the display must show the day and hour as follows: 12:00 MO (Monday) The active operation mode is the framed OFF mode. If the display is different, press the RESET button. Use a fine probe such as a straightened paper clip to gently push the RESET button. 6) Temperature displayed in °C or °F. Secure the wallplate to the electrical box using 6-32, 1/2" screws. See above drawing. You can choose to display the temperature in Celsius (°C) or in Fahrenheit (°F).

OPERATION CHARACTERISTICS Operation modes 1) Proportional control The thermostat has four (4) operation modes : AUTO, MAN, STBY AND OFF. They are selected through the MODE button. On display, the active mode is framed. The frame moves on to the next mode each time the MODE button is pressed. NOTES : When scrolling from the operation mode OFF to an active mode, the thermostat will take 5 to 10 seconds to display the room temperature. In normal use, the thermostat housing temperature can reach 35 °C to 45 °C. AUTO The AUTOmatic mode executes in sequence (hourly) the programs recorded by the user. Pressing on the t or s button displays the temperature setting for five (5)econds. This thermostat works differently than the conventional electro-mechanic one. The latter can have a variation of the set temperature up to 4 °C while the electronic thermostat has a variatio n of only 0.3°C. This slight oscillation eliminates the discomfort of temperature variation often found with conventional electro-mechanic thermostat. The proportional controller determines the amount of power required by the electric heating system to maintain the exact ambient temperature of the temperature setting. The display shows, in real time, the applied power to the electric heating system. If you have set the switch #1 at position « ON » to control a fan equipped system, the display will show 100 % when the heating system is turning on and 0 % when it is OFF. In that case, the temperature regulation is +/ - 0.5°C around the set point. 2) Characteristics - Model: TH101A - Electronic Programmable line voltage thermostat (2 wires). MAN The MAN operation mode allows the user to bypass the programming and holds the present temperature. The first time the t or s button is pressed, the temperature setting is displayed. For all subsequent times pressed, the temperature setting will change 1°C. - Supply: 120/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. - Load: 16.6 Amp. maximum, 1.8 Amp minimum (Resistive only). - Power: 4000 W / 240 VAC or 2000 W / 120 VAC. - Power consumption (off) : 860mW. - Approvals: CSA - Display range: 0 to 40 °C (32 to 99 °F ) - Setting range: 5 to 35 °C (41 to 95 °F ) - Storage: -20 to 50 °C (-4 to 120 °F ) - Temperature control: 0.3 °C (SW1=Off), +/- 0.5 °C (SW1=On). - Precision: ± 0.5°C (2500W), 0.9°C (4000W) of temperature setting. STBY - Six (6) programs: 4 weekday programs and 2 weekend programs. The STBY ( STANDBY) mode allows an immediate adjustment of the temperature setting. It is factory set to 10 °C. User can modify by refering to section: PROGRAMMING TH E STBY MODE TEMPERATURE. A pressure on the t or s button displays the temperature setting for five (5) seconds. OFF Why should you use the STBY mode? If you leave your home for the weekend and you wish to keep the temperature to an economic level, instead of adjusting the thermostat in manual mode and changing the setpoint of all units, just set the thermostat in STBY mode. In this mode, the electric heating system is turned off. Only the time and the operation OFF mode framed are displayed. WARRANTY AUBE TECHNOLOGIES INC.
