THANK YOU!!
Thank you very much for selecting Fostoria’s portable electric infrared heating equipment for your
comfort heating needs. These products were engineered with the most reliable components and
materials available and are equipped with features to assure ease of installation and maintenance.
The warmth you will now enjoy when using this heating equipment is created by a heat source; a flat
panel emitter; that emits infrared energy in the form of heat, like the sun. This is an economical way
to heat because it heats people and objects, not the air, so you don’t need to heat a large area to feel
warm.
CHECKING YOUR SHIPMENT
• Upon receipt of your shipment, check all cartons for visible damage.
• Claims for damaged material or shortages that were not evident upon receipt of shipment must be
reported to carrier and TPI Corporation’s customer service (800-251-0382) immediately.
• Any accessory items ordered for the heater will be shipped in separate cartons.

The Fostoria FSP-series is a line of heavy-duty portable
heaters designed to provide electric infrared heat when
permanently installed heaters are not practical or
economical. They are easily transported to the work site
and connected to disconnect switches or lighting centers.
The units are suited to a wide variety of indoor and
protected outdoor commercial or industrial uses. They
operate cleanly, emitting no fumes or odors.
Applications where combustible materials and/or
personnel will be located near these heaters require the
addition of a ground-fault sensing switch as part of the
electrical circuit. See the INSTALLATION PLANNING
section of this manual for more details. Any installation of
these heaters must also adhere to the minimum clearance
information below.

Preparations for Wiring Heaters
• The maximum ampacity rating for an infrared heating circuit is 48.
FIRE HAZARD
• The opening in the terminal box for
branch circuit supply wiring on FSP-14
and FSP-31 models is sized for 1/2-inch
trade size cable connectors. Openings
in terminal boxes for supply wiring on
FSP- 43 and FSP-95 models are sized
for 3/4-inch trade size cable connectors.
• Serious injury or death may
occur.
• Heater circuit load calculations
and circuit design must be
done by a licensed electrician
or engineer.
• Cable connectors and cables are not
provided with these heaters. (See
Specifications on page 7 for
exceptions.)
The following tables are provided to assist the licensed electrician in sizing the electric cables and/or
plugs needed for each FSP heater model. Since only model FSP-1412-1C is equipped with cables and
plugs, these items for all other models will have to be obtained through a local supplier or purchased
separately from Fostoria. (See Table B.)
All supply cables must be copper, rated 90°C and comply with all local codes and the National Electric
Code (NEC).
All recommended wire sizes assume a 50ft. maximum wire length.

ELECTRIC SHOCK
HAZARD
• Serious injury or death
may occur.
• Disconnect heater and

supply before installing or

• Alway securely connect
green wire on heater to
bonding (green) wire from
electrical supply.
ISSUE DATE 7/2015
REV. DATE-
The FSP-series heaters do not have any on board controls
and therefore all permanently connected heaters must be
used in conjunction with the applicable Fostoria FPC-series
control center or be wired to a listed, properly rated safety
switch for on/off control. Always disconnect the power at the
circuit breaker or disconnect switch before installing electric
power to the heater. If the breaker or disconnect switch
cannot be seen from where you will be working, lock it in the
open position and tag it to prevent unexpected application
of power. Failure to do so could result in fatal electric shock.
Do not depend on a thermostat or other switch as the sole
means of turning off power to the heater.
To disconnect power to heaters using wall receptacles and
plugs, simply unplug the heater.
“Bonding” is the intentional electrical connection of all non-current
carrying metal parts to the equipment grounding (green) conductor
of the heater and then terminating this green conductor to the green
conductor of the power supply to form a low-impedance path back
to the power supply so that safety devices (circuit breakers, fuses)
can quickly remove dangerous touch voltage from these parts when
a fault occurs. Always securely connect the green conductor from the power supply to the green conductor of the
heater.

INSTALLATION - WIRING
Wiring of FSP- Series Heaters
Since all FSP- Series heaters (except FSP-1412-1C) are received without an electric cable, the following
steps must be taken before attaching the heater to the base:
1. Install a standard or liquid-tight cable connector into the hole in the side of the terminal box. (See
page 6 for appropriate cable connector sizes.) Note: If a connector larger than 3/4” is required, a
hole must be pulled in the the junction box cover to accommodate the required fitting size. An
extension ring may be used to provide additional wiring space.
2. Place the properly sized supply cable through the fitting. See page 6 for cable and plug size
specifications or refer to the National Electric Code (NEC).
3. Connect supply cable leads to the element lead wires in the terminal box with wire nuts or other
safe mechanical means. Black and white cable leads can be connected to either element lead wire.
Connect green lead from supply cable to green (bonding) lead in the terminal box. See page 9 for
wiring options.
4. Secure handle to rear of FSP-14 and FSP-31.( Not required on other models.)
5. Connect heater to appropriate electric circuit.

OPERATION
When power is provided to these heaters the heater
elements will take several minutes to achieve full
infrared output that can be confirmed by an orange
to dull red glow on the element face. The element
coil under this condition is operating between
1,500 and 1,600° F emitting medium wave
length (approx. 3 microns or millionths of a
meter) infrared energy. This energy, that
can also be considered “radiation” is not
harmful, yet is very effective at heating
objects and surfaces that are within the
line-of-sight of the elements and the
heater’s reflective surfaces.
EXPLOSION HAZARD
FIRE HAZARD
BURN HAZARD
•
Serious injury or death may
occur.
•
Always operate heaters on
level surfaces.
•
Allow heater to fully cool after
power is removed before
touching or working on it.
•
Do not leave heaters unattended while in operation.
•
Maintain minimum clearances
to combustibles as shown in
table below.

When power is provided or removed from these
heaters, you may hear unfamiliar sounds that are
caused by the expansion and contraction of metal
components in the heater. This is normal.
There are no on/off switches, tip-over switches or
over-temperature safety cut out devices included
on any of these heaters. See the Accessories
section of this manual for more details.

MAINTENANCE
Pre-Season Maintenance and Annual Inspection
To ensure your safety and years of trouble-free operation from the heaters, periodic service and
inspections must be done by a trained maintenance person or licensed electrician.
To obtain maximum performance from your heater(s) each year, we recommend the following be
performed at the start of the heating season:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Clean housing reflector surfaces with a damp cloth.
Blow or dust off the elements and inner reflectors.
Repair or replace damaged power cables.
DO NOT hose-down these heaters.
Storage
When storing the heaters for long periods they should be covered to avoid accumulation of dust and
other contaminants. Keep them in dry areas away from dripping or standing water and heavy humidity.
• Do not store in a damp
location
