Installation of an electric radiator with controlled inertia controlled in individual mode

This latest-generation electric radiator, with curved glass front, is equipped with an automatic presence detector (Sweet Control® system) to adjust the level of comfort according to the presence and movements of people in the room and not the habits. The progress made in the search for energy savings has also greatly benefited both the choice of its components (cast iron heater and heating film with thermal safety limiter) and in the automated management of its regulation, depending on criteria more and more refined. The device concerned, which can benefit from the "pilot wire" or "powerline" mode, can save up to 25% and enjoy the maximum comfort and security that can bring its automated electronic management.

Steps

  1. Fixing the radiator support to the wall
  2. Electrical connection of the radiator
  3. Installation and programming of the radiator

Fixing the radiator support to the wall

Unlocking the radiator support

Unlocking the radiator support

1. Unlock the radiator back bracket by bringing the cut-away end of the lock screw head into contact with the radiator back plate. Do it with the flat blade of a screwdriver. Raising the stand and then removing the back of the device is a breeze.

2. Using the radiator support as a template, lay it on the ground at the location you have determined with respect to the flush-mounted junction box and mark on the wall the two drill points given by the two holes located on the wall. top of the uprights of the support. Check the level, as some soils are not always perfectly level.

3. Now mount the bracket along the wall until its lower mounting holes match the drilling points you have just spotted. Mark the two drilling points determined by the two mounting holes on the top of the vertical uprights of the bracket.

4. Make the holes on the marked points. Depending on the nature of the wall, you will adapt the type of drill to use. On this plasterboard wall, a drill of 10 was used.

5. Use suitable dowels (4 wall plugs supplied with the unit) and put them in place. For hollow walls (plasterboard), use molly ® type anchors but long enough (M5 x 71), their flange once tight providing a greater contact area and resistance.

6. Tighten the screws with either a manual screwdriver or a screwdriver, much faster. it is only necessary to slow down the speed of rotation at the end of tightening.

Electrical connection of the radiator

Unscrewing the cable exit cover

Unscrewing the cable exit cover

1. Turn off the power supply to the meter and unscrew the flush-mounted junction box cover. Approach the radiator without placing it on its support so as to have its 3-wire power cable (blue for neutral, brown for phase and black for pilot wire). Attention, the device being of class II, does not have any ground wire, nor plug of connection.

2. Take out the domino which isolates the 3 wires from the power supply line of the junction box. Not having to connect the ground wire, cut off its bare end and bend it back into the sheath. You can also isolate it by a protective terminal...

3. Connect the neutral (blue wires) and the phases, the black wire (pilot wire) remaining free but connected alone to the domino for safety (device not controlled) or intended for future connection with another pilot wire (device connected to programming station or other device). Attention, never connect the ground wire (yellow and green) of the power supply network to the pilot wire (black) of the radiator.

4. As for setting up a single device here, you can now tuck the domino into the junction box. Adjust the electrical cable of the radiator in the retaining ring inside the cover and then tighten it with the two external screws. Replace the cover on the junction box and secure it by screwing.

Installation and programming of the radiator

Laying the radiator on its support

Laying the radiator on its support

1. Place the base of the radiator on the bottom hooks of the support, keeping it about 20 centimeters of inclination. Attention because the device weighs a certain weight (22 Kg for the 1000 W, 31 Kg for the 1500 W and 39 Kg for the 2000 W). If necessary, get help.

Hanging chains

Hanging chains

2. Hang the chains in the two horizontal holes located above the uprights of the support. This safety is important because in case of bad setting of the radiator on its high supports, they would maintain the weight at the oblique, avoiding any accident...

Final installation of the radiator

3. Lift the radiator upright while lifting it so that it can hook onto the notches in the bracket. Then press down to snap into these notches. You will have to do the blocking of the radiator on its support by performing with the flat blade of a screwdriver, the reverse operation of that performed in photo 1. You can then restore the power supply.

4. The control box is mounted on the top of the radiator to be easily accessible. In the absence of an onboard programming by pilot wire or powerline, it allows, by digital screen, to manually manage the regulation of the device.

5. The programming of this radiator can also be done with the "pass program" card, the on-board digital control system, ultra sensitive, with pilot wire or power line. In pilot wire, this program is adaptable only for recent housing, equipped with power line with at least one additional wire (black pilot wire) for connecting the control modes of electronic devices (NFC standards 15 1 00).

"Powerline" technique
For homes that do not have these power lines, there is the technique of "power line" which requires no additional wire but only to adapt the connections with specific cable outlets called TDM (standards EN 50 065- 1). Like the pilot wire programming system, this powerline technology is also adaptable to centralized management of home appliances, divided into several areas.
