Aube Technologies Thermostat TH106 User manual
INSTALLATION
NOTE : The “Problems and Solutions” section located at the end of this document will help you to correct the problems you might have during the installation.
This thermostat has been designed to operate with any installation which has a
RESISTIVE load not exceeding 4000 W (16.7 A) @ 240 VAC or 2000 W @ 120
VAC as electric baseboards, radiant ceilings and floors, electric convectors, etc.
It is not compatible with a low voltage controller used by a central heating system or systems using a contactor or a relay whose current is under 1.0 A.
MODEL TH106
Electricians or experienced technicians should install the thermostat. This thermostat is designed to be used with a self-protected heating system equipped
with linear limit control and circuit breaker.

NOTE 1: This thermostat has been factory set to proportionally control electric
baseboards, radiant systems and convectors. Since proportional control uses a
fast commutation rate, it is not compatible with fan equipped systems (see
characteristics). Also, this control mode could occasionally create light flickering,
especially in rural area.
By switching to the 15 minute cycle mode, the thermostat will be compatible with fan equipped systems.
TELEPHONE CONTROLLER
The TH106 incorporates a telephone controller interface which allows you to
switch from the normal operating mode to the Vacation setting (
), and vice
versa, using the telephone keypad (stationary or portable). You can, for example, heat your country house from your office on Friday, or your house from the
airport or from your car on your way back from vacation. When the telephone
controller sends a signal, the
icon appears on the screen.
Connection to the CT240
The TH106 is designed to connect directly to the CT240 telephone controller.
This combination allows the activation and deactivation of the Vacation mode
from the CT240 or the telephone.
NOTE 2: The thermostat is providing a built-in function enabling it to calculate
the optimum time to start the heating system to achieve the desired temperature setting at the programmed time. To enable this function, set the switch E.S.
to “ON” at the back of the thermostat.

Replace the front part of the thermostat on
the base and secure them in place with
the screw.
!
!
Connect the CT240’s terminals A and C to the TH106’s terminals X and C
respectively. You must respect the polarity. The signal given by the CT240 is a
low voltage signal and must not circulate in the electrical box. The wire must run
on the exterior side of the electrical box to join the thermostat.
Use a 18 to 22 gauge flexible wire and pass it behind the thermostat through the
slot located in front of the connector.
For details on operating the telephone controller, refer to the CT240’s
Instruction Manual.
NOTE : All cables and connections must conform to the local electrical code.
PROGRAMMING
WARNING : Special CO/ALR solderless connectors must be used when connecting with aluminium conductors.
Programming the time and day
1- Set the time using the Hour and Min buttons.
2- Set the day using the Day button.
Power-up
When power is applied for the first time, the display must show the time 0:00, the ambient temperature and the Manual mode icon (
). Other
information might show up on the display if
installation is defective or does not comply with
the instructions.
Programming the Comfort, Economy and Vacation settings

CHARACTERISTICS
This thermostat works differently than the conventional electromechanic one. The latter can
have a differential of temperature up to 4 °C
(7.2 °F) while this electronic thermostat has one
of only 0.2 °C (0.36 °F). This slight oscillation
eliminates the discomfort often found with conventional electromechanic thermostats.
The proportional controller determines the
amount of power required by the electric heating
system to maintain the exact ambient temperature of the temperature setting.
