General Product Information
Section 1
Thank you for purchasing an infrared heating panel produced by
INFRAPOWER MANUFACTURING LTD., sold by WARMLYYOURS RADIANT HEATING.
THIS VERSION OF THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL HAS BEEN TRANSLATED FROM THE ORIGINAL GERMAN
VERSION APPROVED BY TÜV RHEINLAND GERMANY. WE DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE
TRANSLATED VERSION. PLEASE ASK YOUR DEALER FOR THE ORIGINAL GERMAN VERSION.
EMBER heating panels operate on electricity. According to this definition, these devices can be dangerous. It is,
therefore, necessary to read these instructions carefully before use. If you have questions, we are also happy to
help. Keep this manual in the vicinity of the device.
1.1 General Information about Infrared Radiant Panels
EMBER radiant panels are direct heating systems that use the principle of infrared heat radiation. They have very low energy
consumption and achieve a pleasant and comfortable indoor climate. The heat conductor is carbon fiber.
EMBER panels convert electrical energy into heat with nearly 100% efficiency. A special coating on the surface is optimized so
as to achieve maximum heat dissipation in the wavelength range from 7 to 10 um.
EMBER radiant panels heat a room just as the sun warms the earth. EMBER brings this infrared heat into your home,
minimizing your heating costs. The panels also have a healthful effect on the human body. The heat has a positive effect on the
human heart, especially for the elderly, children and newborns. It also has a very effective impact on people who are restricted
in their movement. The use of EMBER panels can improve your overall health.
When the panels are in use, only 80% of traditional heating is needed, because the panels can boost the feeling of warmth
in a room. Compared with traditional heating, savings up to 30% can be achieved with EMBER infrared heating panels. In
transitional periods, this can rise to 60%.
1.2. General Information about Ember Panels
EMBER radiant panels can be used in different rooms and environments (for each application, see Section 1.3.). Depending
on the environment and nature of the desired application, various models are recommended (to find the best model for
you, please contact your dealer). For all models and applications, be sure to follow the safety instructions for installation (see
Section 3.1.).
EMBER radiant panels heat up in about 5 to 10 minutes. Your room will not feel warmer immediately, because the cold objects
in the room (furniture, walls, ceilings, floors, etc.) need to warm up first. Once these things are heated, the warmth will spread
throughout the room and you will be able to reduce the length of time in which the heating panel is in operation. Hence, you
can save a great amount of energy.
Depending on which EMBER model you have selected, the surface will heat from 176 to 257ºF (80 to 125 °C). All EMBER
heating panels are equipped with temperature sensors that regulate the surface of the unit so that they do not overheat.
EMBER heating panels can also be used for different environmental applications. For further details, see Section 1.3.

General Product Information
Section 1
1.3. Various Applications and Models
1.3.1. Ceiling Panels
In order to heat a room optimally, EMBER panels should be attached to the ceiling. This optimizes the radiation. Plus, it
saves space.
EMBER panels are light enough to be integrated into existing ceiling systems. Please note the necessary details for
instructions described in Section 3.1.
1.3.2. Wall Panels
EMBER wall panels can be optimally used as a supplementary or primary heating system. Due to their thin and light
structure and the differences in surface design, the panels are compact and suitable for almost all walls (please see the
instructions for installation in Section 3.1.). Depending on the mounting position, EMBER wall panels have a convection
heat share of almost 0%.

Safety Notes Before First Use
Section 2
2.1. General Safety Instructions
• All EMBER heating panels are only suitable for use as a heating element. Any improper use can present a significant danger
to people, animals and the environment.
• EMBER heating panels are not intended to be used by people (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
abilities or lack of experience and/or knowledge, unless they are supervised by a person responsible for their safety or have
received instructions on how to use the device.
• All heating panels must be kept away from children. Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with
the device.
• EMBER heating panels are not suitable for use in rain or wet conditions, under water, and for any non-intended use.
• For all EMBER heating panels, please observe the following installation instructions (see Section 3).
• Each EMBER heater has a built-in safety switch that turns off the heating element automatically if it is overheating. By
unplugging the unit and waiting for about 10 to 15 minutes, the safety switch is activated automatically and the unit is
operational again.
2.2. Special Safety Instructions
• DO NOT COVER. Warning: To avoid overheating, the heater must not be covered. Never cover the EMBER heating panel. This
can cause heat buildup.
• The heater is very hot when in use (depending on model, up to 125° C or 257ºF). Contact could lead to serious burns.
• Each EMBER heater is equipped with a power cord and plug. By using an optional adapter, you can operate the heater with
a room thermostat. Make sure that nobody can trip over the cable. Protect the unit from overloading the circuit breaker, and
operate the equipment only as specified on the nameplate.
• Do not use the EMBER heating panel if the power cord or plug is damaged. This should be checked before each use. Do not
drag or tear the main cable. Do not scrub the cable, and do not clamp the cable. Neither the cable nor the plugs may be
repaired or replaced. In case of damage, contact the manufacturer or distributor.
• Never dip EMBER heating panels into water or put them in water. Also, people should never touch the heating element
while they are in the bathtub or shower. Do not use this device near a bathtub shower or swimming pool.
• The heating panel can only be operated in a permanently mounted position (for more information on mounting, see Section
3.1.).
• In case of damage to the heating panel or the circuit cable, immediately disconnect it from the circuit. (For further
information about the warranty process, see Section 8).
• To prevent damage and accidents, never open the device (see the detailed information described in Section 3.5.). If the

Instructions for Installation
Section 3
3.1 Instructions for Mounting
EMBER panels must be mounted with the supplied original mounting hardware (aluminum profiles at the back of the
panels and screws included). For panels that are used without the original mounting hardware, the warranty, liability and
consequential damages are void.
EMBER panels must only be used in the manufacturer-related frames.
For panels that are used without the original frame, the warranty, liability and damages are void.
3.1.2. General Instructions for Mounting
Depending on the desired application (see Section 1.3.), different types of installation are provided. All EMBER panels come
with original mounting hardware (aluminum profiles at the backside of the panels and screws for wall/ceiling mounting are
enclosed).
• Make sure that the power plug is not plugged in during assembly. During installation of the unit, also make sure that the
heating panel is not in the “ON” position.
