Product Applications

K701-1-DTSB Autonomous Dual Timed Setback is designed to be used where an Automatic timed electric heat setback is needed and a second lower setback for longer away times. This is typically used in College dormitories, Motels, Temporary housing, anywhere the tenant is not finically responsible for the cost of heating and has an active life pattern. This guarantees and reinforces good energy saving habits and places the burden on the Tenant for the higher heating levels and their efforts to remain above a predefined reasonable and typically comfortable level. Be safe and smart, electricity can cause severe injury or death.
If you are uncomfortable hire an electrician for the project
This Autonomous Dual Timed Setback is for small fan electric heater, baseboards, radiant ceiling, wall panel heaters, cove heaters, or any 120 Line voltage resistance heating systems that do not have an electric motor over 1/3 hp. The thermostat will be warm to the touch on top. This is normal operation and also provides air currents across the face of the thermostat that better help it sense room temperature.
