The sensors can be placed on the ground, on a terrace or on a facade. The floor layout allows to choose without exposure exposure and location of the sensor (out of shadows). The distance between the sensor and the hot water tank must be as short as possible to reduce heat loss.
- Copper tubes
- Plumber's equipment (for beaten collars)
- Electrical canalization (probe)
- Mason material (sealing)
1. The hot water outlet of the sensor (actually out of the hot heat transfer fluid) is from the top; it is connected to a bent copper tube, which must be connected to the pipe leading to the water heater. The pipes must be buried between the sensor and the house, respecting the routing standards: depth of at least 60 cm, protection by grilling.
2. Heat the copper pipes. Between the two copper pipes (separated by at least 20 cm) is that of the control probe, connected to the outlet pipe of the sensor.
3. Install a connection hose for series-connected sensors, as here. Then connect the outlet tubing to the unit.
4. This element has an automatic degassing trap.
5. The copper pipes are connected to the outlet and inlet of the heat transfer fluid.
6. The sensors are based on galvanized steel supports that give them an inclination of 45°. The sensors can be placed horizontally or vertically. It is necessary to weight, or to anchor the supports by sealing.
7. Fixing the sensor on a vertical wall (wall or facade). Note the mounting of the copper pipes.
8. Seal the support very securely in the wall so that it can support the weight of the unit and withstand the pull of the winds.
