The clock
The 24 Hour dial rotates once each day. It should be set so that the time line is
against the ‘WINTER TIME’ line in Winter or the ‘SUMMER TIME’ line during
British Summer Time. Adjust the clock by turning the dial clockwise.
A battery reserve will keep the clock running even if the mains supply is
interrupted for up to 6 days.
Water heater switch
In the WATER HEATER OFF position the heaters remain OFF but the clock will
run and the stand-by battery will remain charged. In the TIMED position the
over-night immersion heater will be switched ON and OFF at the pre-set times.
Boost timer
When extra Hot water is required during the day the Boost Timer can be used.
Where two immersion elements are fitted in the tank the Boost Timer switches
on the upper heater only.
Turn the knob anti-clockwise to the ‘START’ position to operate the Boost
Timer. The Boost period can be limited by turning the knob anti-clockwise to
one of the intermediate positions if less than the maximum Boost period is
required. The immersion heater will be switched OFF after the selected period,
or when the temperature of the water reaches the thermostat setting. If
required, further Boost periods can be selected. The electricity used will be at
the appropriate day tariff rate.
Neon indicators
The TIMED neon will illuminate when the immersion heater is activated
The BOOST neon will illuminate when the Boost timer is in use.
OFF-PEAK heating period
Your Installer would have already set the Off-Peak heating time to suit local
switching times as supplied by your Regional Electricity Company.
