Question about Dimplex ETS610A1 Electronic Line Voltage Thermostat Single Pole, Almond

2 Answers

Can I use this thermostat to control a 310w, 120v heat lamp load?

The instructions warn that the load must range from 1.25A to 7.4A 300w to 1750W at 240V. Will I have 1.25A load at 120V?

You're missing some important information. What sort of set up is this?

You cannot use a device rated for 240V operation with a device rated for 120V.

If you are putting the thermostat into the 240V mains and plugging in a 120V transformer box to operate the heat lamp then the transformer box will be drawing current as well.

Switching the transformer on and off as the heat falls and rises will shorten the life of the transformer.

Your best bet is to get (buy or hire) a radiator or heating device with it's own built in thermostat. Also make sure that it has a cut out switch if the unit is knocked over.

Lightolier 3 way remote wiring


If you have determined the wiring to be correct, then yes, the remote is probably defective..

According to Lightolier literature, your Lightolier OS600 is called a "strap dimmer". Having 540W on a 600w rated switch is pretty close to the limit (90%) of the switch, and will cause the switch to fail sooner than say a 300w load. The 600w rating of the switch applies only if all the heating sink fins are in place. Often times, when installing in a box with another switch or dimmer, fins must be removed to allow the switch to physically fit. If any fins are removed, the rating of the switch is reduced. Page 30 of the manual shows that a 600w strap dimmer that has a single fine removed is reduced to a 500w capacity dimmer, and if both fins are removed, it is reduced to a 400w dimmer. You may find that you will need a 1000w dimmer to reliably gain control of your 540w load, as it will control 600w even with both fins removed. This derating is required due to the heat created by the dimmer. Heat is a killer for electronics, and solid state dimmers are no exception.

Check out page 32 of that manual. On it, are wiring diagrams for dimmers and switches. I believe your is figure "G" that shows the 120v "hot" (black) connected to the black wire of ALL switches, the yellow wires of ALL the switches are connected together, but are not connected to anything else, the 120v neutral (white) connects to the MASTER white wire AND light fixture white wire and finally, the MASTER red wire connects to the light fixture black wire.

It is also important to note that these switches are for standard tungsten incandescent and quartz halogen lamps ONLY. They are NOT suitable for CFL, Fluorescent or other types frequently found in commercial / industrial buildings such as neon or other gas lamps such as Metal Halide, Mercury Vapor, High Pressure Sodium, etc.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I would like to know what wattage can the SS8 series handle??


Intermatic SS8 Instruction Manual says:
The timer can control incandescent lights, fluorescent lights, flood lights (PAR lamps), stereos, or appliances such as an air conditioner. The timer can also control many loads 12 to 277 VAC and 12 to 28 Volts DC.

Intermatic Load rating pdf shows SS5 at 500Watts and no HP rating.
Load rating pdf shows SS7 and SS20 rated for 15Amp, 120V-1HP, 240V-2HP.
Load rating does not show SS8, but since SS8 manual shows 'appliances and air conditioner,' and same load parameters shown for SS7, then Amp and HP rating would have to be same-similar to SS7.

It will not operate. The control panel will work but you will have no heat. The top and oven need 220 to actually heat up. The only thing that will work on 120 will be your clock and a warm zone if there's one.

Electric baseboard heater


You need a meter, it will be hard without this! If you have 220v in the wall, then think of it like this; each wire is 120v. Test to each other, you get 220v. The thermostat is a double pole, you said. So think of it like this, its an adjustable temperature controlled switch that lets electricity through at the temp. you set it at. If you have 120v from one wire connected to one end of the element, and the other 120v connected to the other end of the element, then it will work. DO NOT CONNECT THE 120V TOGETHER. IT MUST GO THROUGH THE ELEMENT FIRST. The thermostat should be between the power from the wall and the element, to control the temperature.

Honeywell Surround HZ2200 / HZ2204 /


A link to an Adobe (Acrobat) Reader format (.pdf) owner's manual for Honeywell® (Mini Tower) SURROUND HEAT™ HEATER FAN Models HZ-2200 (charcoal) and HZ-2204 (white) is here.

Some text from the manual:

SET UP
• The Surround Heat™ Heater is designed to
disperse heat in either a 360° range or in one direction only.
• To select the desired heating mode, slide the Direction Control switch, located
on the top of the heater, to the position of your choice:
– to the right (full circle) for 360° Heating
– to the left (half circle) for forward only heating (One Direction
Heating)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Select the appropriate heat dispersion mode. (See
Set-Up instructions.)
• With the Power knob in the OFF position, plug the
heater into a polarized 120V outlet.
• Turn the Thermostat control fully clockwise to the
HIGH setting.
• Turn the heater on using the Child Resistant switch
(Power knob). To operate the switch, push down
the two sides of the Power knob while turning it
clockwise to the desired position. The power
light will illuminate. The Child Resistant switch helps
ensure that the heater can not be turned on accidentally.
• When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, slowly turn the Thermostat
control counter-clockwise until the heater goes off. This is the point at which the
Thermostat setting equals the room temperature. At this setting, the Thermostat
will automatically turn the heater on and off to maintain this selected temperature.
• Push down and turn the Power knob to OFF and unplug the heater when you
are finished using it.
