The outdoor sensor is required for the following:
• outdoor temperature display
• balance points (heat pumps only, see section 4.2)
• defrost point (heat pumps only, see section 4.3)
• automatic humidity control (see section 8.2)
• use of an air exchanger (see section 4.10)
When installing the sensor, observe the following guidelines:
• Avoid locations where the sensor can be covered with snow
or exposed to direct sunlight.
• Avoid air outlets and concealed chimneys or stove pipes.
Install the sensor using its mounting clip and connect it to controller
terminals OS and CS (no polarity).

The plenum sensor is required for the following:
• low temperature limit inside the plenum (HVAC only)
• high temperature limit inside the plenum (HVAC only)
• fan limit if gas heating is used (HVAC only)
• high pressure protection during defrost cycle (This protection
is generally needed for add-on installations only. It is not
TH146-P-U
needed if the heat pump is not connected to the controller
terminal WW.)
Install the sensor on the side of the plenum and
position it such that its aperture faces the air
flow.
Connect the sensor to controller terminals PS
and CS (no polarity). For more information,
refer to the instructions provided with the sensor.
NOTE: The maximum wiring length is 30 m
(100 ft).
2.9
Dual-energy Input

equipped with auxiliary heat.
The dual-energy input can be connected to the dual-register meter
equipped with a normally open (NO) dry contact. Connect the controller terminals DE and CC to the meter terminals (yellow and red
wires).
The contact closes when the outdoor temperature drops below the
temperature setting on the meter. When the contact is closed, the
heat pump is disabled and only the auxiliary heat can be used.
2.10 Unoccupied Mode Input
To use the unoccupied mode, the controller requires a remote control device such as Aube’s CT241 telephone controller equipped
with a normally open (NO) dry contact placed between terminals UN
and CC of the controller. The unoccupied mode is activated when
the contact closes. (See section 6.3.)

4. Principles of Operation
4.1
Automatic Heating/Cooling Changeover
With automatic heating/cooling mode changeover, there’s no need to adjust
the controller at every change of season or weather condition. The controller
switches automatically between heating mode and cooling mode to maintain
the desired temperature.
Manual Mode
When the controller is in manual mode, the heating/cooling mode
changeover occurs as follows:
•
The controller switches to cooling mode when the indoor temperature
is higher than the setpoint by more than 1.5°C (2.5°F) for 15 minutes.
•
The controller switches the heating mode when the indoor temperature
is lower than the setpoint by more than 1.5°C (2.5°F) for 15 minutes.
Automatic Mode
When the controller is in automatic mode, it follows the programmed schedule. Two temperature settings (heating setpoint and cooling setpoint) are
programmed for each period of the schedule. The heating/cooling mode
changeover occurs as follows:
•
•
When the controller is in heating mode, the indoor temperature is maintained at the heating setpoint. However, if the temperature rises and
remains above the cooling setpoint for 15 minutes, the controller will
switch to cooling mode.
When the controller is in cooling mode, the indoor temperature is maintained at the cooling setpoint. However, if the temperature drops and
remains below the heating setpoint for 15 minutes, the controller will
switch to heating mode.
4.2
Balance Points (heat pumps only)
Balance Points are used to disable the heat pump or the auxiliary heating
when the outdoor temperature is below or above a set temperature.
•
When the outdoor temperature is below the Balance Point Low
(bP L), the heat pump is disabled and only auxiliary heating can be
used (see page 8, item 5).
•
When the outdoor temperature is above the Balance Point High (bP H),
the auxiliary heat is disabled and only the heat pump can be used (see
page 8, item 6).
NOTE: Balance Points cannot be used if the AC144-03 outdoor temperature
sensor is not connected to the controller.
4.3
Heating During Defrost (heat pumps only)
The auxiliary heat is normally activated during defrost except under the following conditions:
•
When the outdoor temperature is above the defrost point (see page 8,
item 7). NOTE: This condition will not apply if the AC144-03 outdoor
sensor is not connected to the controller.
•
When the plenum temperature is above 40°C (104°F) for add-on installations only. The auxiliary heat is re-activated when the plenum temperature drops below 32°C (90°F). NOTE: This condition will not apply if
the AC146-410 plenum sensor is not connected to the controller.
NOTE: The auxiliary heat’s short-cycle protection is disabled during defrost.
4.4
Types of Heat Pump Installations
The controller can be configured for either of the following types of heat
pump installations (see page 8, item 8).
•
Add-on Installation: This type of installation is performed when adding
a heat pump to an existing furnace. When the heat pump is installed,
the furnace becomes the auxiliary heat source. In this type of installation, the indoor coils are usually installed downstream of the auxiliary
heat source. When the controller is configured for an add-on installation, the heat pump is disabled during auxiliary heating to prevent overpressure.
TH146-P-U
•
New Installation: In this type of installation, as there is not already a
furnace, the auxiliary heat source is installed at the same time as the
heat pump. In this type of installation, the indoor coils are located
upstream of the auxiliary heat. When the controller is configured for a
new installation, the heat pump and the auxiliary heat can operate
simultaneously.
4.5
Interstage Delay
Interstage Delay is the time allocated for the temperature to return to an
acceptable value when it deviates too far from the setpoint. If this time has
elapsed, the next heating or cooling stage is activated. The heating or cooling stage will be deactivated when the temperature returns to an acceptable
value. The Interstage Delay is fixed at 4 minutes if the controller is configured for an HVAC system and is user-adjustable if it is configured for a heat
pump (see page 8, item 9).
4.6
Low and High Temperature Limits
Low Temperature Limit (LLMT) and High Temperature Limit (HLMT) are
used to keep the plenum from becoming too cold or too hot. During cooling,
if the plenum temperature is lower than LLMT, a cooling stage is deactivated
starting with the one that was last activated. If, after a while, the temperature
is still too low, another cooling stage is deactivated and so on. Likewise, during heating, if the plenum temperature is higher than HLMT, a heating stage
is deactivated starting with the one that was last activated. If, after a while,
the temperature is still too high, another heating stage is deactivated and so
on. (see page 8, items 10 and 11.)
WARNING: LLMT and HLMT can be used in parallel with an UL353approved device but they do not replace such device.
NOTE: LLMT and HLMT cannot be used if the plenum temperature sensor is
not connected to the controller.
4.7
Smart Fan
When Smart Fan is enabled (see page 8, item 15), the fan operates as follows:
•
During periods 2 and 4 of automatic mode and during the unoccupied
mode (i.e., when you are away from home or sleeping), the fan operates only when heating or cooling is activated.
•
The fan operates continuously the rest of the time.
NOTE: For Smart Fan to work, set the fan to On (see section 6.1).
4.8
Automatic Humidification / Dehumidification Changeover
If a humidifier and a dehumidifier are both connected to the controller, the
controller will automatically switch between the two devices to maintain the
desired humidity level. The changeover occurs when the humidity deviates
from the setpoint by more than 3% for 30 minutes.
4.9
Dehumidification by Droop
Dehumidification by droop is a method of dehumidification without using a
dehumidifier. This method is possible only if your system has a cooling
stage. When this feature is enabled (see page 8, item 18), if the humidity
level is too high, the temperature is temporarily lowered below the setpoint
to reduce the indoor humidity level.
NOTE: Dehumidification by droop can cause overcooling.
4.10
Dehumidification by Air Exchanger
Dehumidification using an air exchanger will not be efficient if the outdoor
temperature is too high. When an air exchanger is used, the controller will
disable dehumidification if the outdoor temperature is NOT lower than the
indoor temperature by more than 5°C (9°F). When this occurs, the message
HIGH TEMP is displayed.

a heat pump equipped with auxiliary heating).
Unoccupied Mode
You can place the controller in the unoccupied mode using a remote
control device such as Aube’s CT241 telephone controller. In this
mode, the temperature is lowered in heating mode or raised in cooling mode (see page 8, item 16). The message UNOC appears during the unoccupied mode.
NOTE: Automatic changeover is disabled during the unoccupied
mode.
Temporary Bypass
In the unoccupied mode, only the
buttons work. When you
adjust the temperature during this mode, the new temperature will
be used for the next 2 hours, after which the controller will return to
the previous setpoint. The message UNOC flashes during the
bypass.
In continuous mode, the fan runs continuously and the
symbol is displayed. NOTE: if Smart Fan is enabled, when the controller is in periods 2 and 4 of automatic mode and in

Manual Temperature Setting
Use this mode to set the temperature manually. To place the controller in this mode, press Auto/Man so that disappears from the
screen. Set the temperature using the
buttons.
NOTE: If the controller is in automatic heat/cool changeover (see
section 6.2), the setpoint is automatically reduced or raised by 1°C
(1.8°F) when the controller switches to heating mode or to cooling
mode respectively. For example, if the setpoint is 24°C (75°F) in
heating mode, it will become 25°C (77°F) in cooling mode and will
return to 24°C (75°F) when the controller switches back to heating
mode.

To set the temperatures for a period, press Pgm until the period
number (P1 to P4) is displayed and the temperature display
flashes. If necessary, press Mode to display the heating setpoint or the cooling setpoint. Press the
buttons to set the
temperature.
NOTE: The cooling setpoint is always higher than the heating setpoint by a minimum of 1°C (1.8°F). For example, if the cooling setpoint is 22°C (72°F) and you set the heating setpoint to 23°C (73°F),
the cooling setpoint will automatically become 24°C (75°F). However, if you raise the heating setpoint to 21°C (70°F), the cooling
setpoint will remain at 22°C (72°F). The same principle applies
when you set the cooling temperature.
