Introduction
ECtemp 550 is an adaptive temperature controller specially
designed for floor heating systems by using the built-in
room sensor and an external floor sensor . It can, however,
also be used for other heating systems (e.g. power heating
units).
The thermostat will measure the radiant temperature from
the floor combined with the air temperature in the room to
compensate for the outside weather condition. This means
that ECtemp 550 will automatically adjust the heating to
meet your comfort levels regardless of changing weather
conditions shortly after the settings are set and the desired
comfort temperature has been selected. A sudden temperature drop in the room will also be detected. Instead of immediately switching on the heating to compensate, information is stored and a check will be made to detect whether this sudden drop of temperature may be caused by, for
instance, a window that has been opened for 10 minutes.

Even the programming of economy temperatures (i.e. lowering of temperature at night and when you are at work) is
very simple. A calculation of the heating start is not needed
to reach a specific temperature at a specific time. Just tell
the ECtemp 550 when you want the comfort temperature,
and the rest will happen automatically; by identifying the
rate of heat loss from the room, ECtemp 550 knows when
to start heating in order to achieve the selected temperature at the right time.
1.1
Safety Instructions
Please observe the following guidelines:
▪ Do not cover the thermostat, e.g. by hanging towels or
similar items in front of it! This will impair the ability of
the thermostat to sense and adjust the room temperature correctly.
▪ Do not spill liquids of any kind into the thermostat.
▪ Do not open, disassemble, or tamper with the thermostat in any way.
▪ If the thermostat is installed in a place frequented by
small children, use the safety lock.
▪ Do not interrupt the power supply to the thermostat.
▪ The installation of the thermostat must be done by an
authorized and qualified installer according to local
regulations.

Basic rules for changing thermostat settings
Accessing different
settings
When you press and hold the button for a certain number of seconds, different layers of settings will
appear.
To increase a value
Turn the button to the right (clockwise).
To decrease a value Turn the button to the left (counterclockwise).
To confirm a value
or go to the next
setting
Press the button once.
The unit of measurement for temperature
The temperature is either shown in
celsius degrees (5°C to 35°C) if a
room sensor is used, or as a scale
from 1 to 10 (where each step corresponds to approximately 5°C) if
only a floor sensor is used .

Network installation
If more ECtemp 550 thermostats have been installed, they
may be connected in a network. If so, one of the thermostats is defined as the master unit controlling the time, day
of week and lowering of temperature during economy periods for the other so-called slave units. This means that
changes to these settings must be made on the master
thermostat and will then automatically take effect on all
"slave" thermostats.
Please contact the electrician to find out if the thermostats
in your house are linked in a network and, if so, ask which
thermostat is configured as master unit.

Frost Protection
How to set the thermostat in frost protection mode
1. Turn the button counter-clockwise until the temperature reaches +5°C (or 1
if a scale from 1 to 10 is used).

Time and Day of Week
The time and day of week is not set by default.
How to set the time and day of week
1. Press and hold the button for 3 seconds.
The symbol for setting of time, the
time and the number of the day in the
week will be shown on the display
2. Turn the button to the right or left.
Every time the time passes 00:00, the day of week
number will go 1 day up/down depending on which
way you turn the button.
The number you choose will be the day of the current
day of the week, i.e. the numbers 1-7 do not correspond to any specific day. For example, if today is
Tuesday and you select 2 on the display, Tuesday will
correspond to number 2.
3. Set the time correctly by turning the button.

2.3
Periods with Lowering of Temperature
With ECtemp 550 you have the possibility of either setting
the thermostat to keep a constant temperature, or let the
thermostat automatically switch between periods with a
lower temperature (also called economy temperature) and
periods with comfort temperature.
By default, the thermostat is set to the following comfort
periods:
▪ Monday - Friday: 6:00 - 8:00 and 16:00 - 22:30.
▪ Saturday - Sunday: 6:00 - 22:30.
In order to automatically switch between comfort temperature and economy temperature (e.g. when going to bed or
to work), the timer function is used.
The temperature will be lowered by a certain number of
degrees compared to the comfort temperature. By default
this number is preset to -5°C.
If the adaptive function is active (this is normally the case),
you only need to select the time at which you require comfort and economy temperatures. The thermostat will then
calculate when the heating should start in order to reach
the desired temperature at the specified time.

How to define comfort periods and economy periods
Note: The markings on the clock ring indicate periods with
comfort temperature and periods with economy temperature. The flashing point indicates the actual time of day. If
at any point you make a mistake, rotate the dial counterclockwise to the first segment and press the button to clear
the marking.
1. Press and hold the button for 6 seconds.
The symbol for timer setting and day
of week numbers are shown.
2. Turn the button clockwise until you
reach the day of week and start time
of the first comfort temperature period, e.g. day 1 at 06:00. Then press the
button once to confirm the start time.

3. Turn the button clockwise until you
reach the time at which the temperature should be lowered again, e.g.
07:30. Then press the button once to
confirm.
4. Turn the button clockwise until you
reach the time at which the comfort
temperature is required again, e.g.
15:30. Then press the button once to
confirm.
5. Turn the button clockwise until you
reach time at which the temperature
should be lowered again, e.g. 22:30.
Then press the button once to confirm.
6. Turn the button clockwise. When you pass the midnight hour (00:00), the settings for the following day
of the week can be made using the same procedure.
7. Repeat Steps 3-6 until period settings for all seven
days of the week are made.

8. Hold the button for 3 seconds to save your settings
and finish.
The display will automatically return to normal display.
How to turn the timer function on and off
1. Press the button once to turn the timer function on or
off.
You may for instance want to turn the timer function
off if a short extension of the comfort period is needed. You may also want to turn off the timer when a
lowering of the temperature is required for a longer
period, e.g. because of vacation.
When switched on, a timer symbol is
shown in the upper part of the display.
An unbroken clock ring indicates that
constant comfort temperature is
maintained, i.e. the timer function is
deactivated.
