Product Overview

The RT510RF wireless room thermostat simply switches the heating system on and off as necessary. It works by sensing the air temperature, switching on the heating when the air temperature falls below the thermostat setting and switching it off once this set temperature has been reached. Turning a room thermostat to a higher setting will not make the room heat up any faster. How quickly the room heats up depends on the design of the heating system, for example, the size of the boiler and radiators. Neither does the setting affect how quickly the room cools down. Turning a room thermostat to a lower setting will result in the room being controlled at a lower temperature, and saves energy. The heating system will not work if a time switch or programmer has switched it off.

The way to set and use your room thermostat is to find the lowest temperature setting that you are comfortable with, and then leave it alone to do its job. The best way to do this is to set the room thermostat to a low temperature – say 18⁰C – and then turn it up by one degree each day until you are comfortable with the temperature. You won’t have to adjust the thermostat further. Any adjustment above this setting will waste energy and cost you more money. If your heating system is a boiler with radiators, there will usually be only one room thermostat to control the whole house. But you can have different temperatures in individual rooms by installing thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) on individual radiators. If you don’t have TRVs, you should choose a temperature that is reasonable for the whole house. If you do have TRVs, you can choose a slightly higher setting to make sure that even the coldest room is comfortable, then prevent any overheating in other rooms by adjusting the TRVs. Room thermostats need a free flow of air to sense the temperature, so they must not be covered by curtains or blocked by furniture. Nearby electric fires, televisions, and wall or table lamps may prevent the thermostat from working properly.

Proper thermostat location



Please note
The ideal position to thermostat mounting is about 1,5m under floor level far from heating or cooling sources. The thermostat can’t be exposed to sunlight or any extreme conditions like for example draft. Because of fire and explosion risk there is not allowed to use the thermostat in an atmosphere of explosive gases and flammable liquids (eg coal dust). In case if any of the listed dangers occur you have to use additional protection measures – anti-dust and explosive gases (tight cover) or prevent their formation. Furthermore, thermostats can’t be used in condensation of water vapor conditions and be exposed to water action.

RXRT510 receiver
The thermostat communicates wirelessly with the RXRT510 receiver. The receiver should be supplied with 230VAC, the maximum load of the receiver is 16A. Avoid installing the device in places directly exposed to water, moisture and air condensation. The RXRT510 receiver can operate in two different modes – AUTO (automatic) and MANUAL (manual). To select a specific mode, use the switches on the front of the receiver.



Receiver’s switches description





ON – Manual mode – receiver ON




OFF – Manual mode – receiver OFF




AUTO – Receiver works in AUTO mode (according to the thermostat’s command)




MANUAL – Receiver works in manual mode

(according to the top switch)

For the receiver to work with the thermostat, set the switches to the ON / AUTO position.

LED indications in the receiver
The status of the RXRT510 receiver is indicated by two LEDs. These are LEDs with the following colors:

The receiver can be thermostat-enabled if it is in automatic mode when the lower switch is in the AUTO position. The receiver can be started manually when the lower switch is in the MANUAL position.






The red LED flashes





The receiver is in the pairing mode and is looking for a signal from the thermostat (then you must activate the “PAIRING” option in the thermostat)




The receiver was paired but lost communication with the thermostat due to out of range or low battery in the thermostat. The receiver starts flashing after one hour of time when it does not receive a signal from the thermostat.

The red diode is off The receiver is disconnected from the 230V power supply or the upper switch is in the OFF position.

The green diode lights up

In automatic mode, the receiver received a heating signal from the thermostat.


The receiver was started in manual mode (upper ON switch, lower MANUAL switch)

The green diode is off The receiver does not send a heating signal.

RT510TX thermostat pairing with the receiver
The word PAIRING in the user settings means the function of synchronizing the transmitter with the receiver again, if it has been removed.

IN THE SET RT510RF THE THERMOSTAT IS FACTORY PAIRED WITH THE RECEIVER! In order to pair the devices correctly, you must first prepare the receiver for synchronization!



  1. If you want to re-pair the devices with each other, make sure that the receiver is disconnected from the power supply and the switches on it are in the AUTO and ON positions. Then connect the receiver to the power supply and wait for the red diode to glow continuously.
  2. Move the top switch to the OFF position with a quick motion and back to the ON position.
  3. The red LED will start blinking, which will confirm that the receiver has entered the pairing mode.SALUS-RT510RF-Programmable-Room-Thermostat-User-Manual-FIG-26
  4. Press and hold TEST / PAIRING button for 3 seconds.
  5. Thermostat started pairing process. It can take up to 10 minutes.
  6. When the red diode on the receiver lights up continuously, the devices have been paired on a new frequency.SALUS-RT510RF-Programmable-Room-Thermostat-User-Manual-FIG-27
  7. Press and hold TEST / PAIRING button for 3 seconds to end pairing process.
  8. Thermostat will go back to the main screen and it has been paired successfully.

Test the pairing process
It is important to place the receiver and transmitter in places where nothing interferes with the radio signal. The range of communication between the transmitter and the receiver in an open area is up to 60m. The radio transmission is influenced by many factors that can shorten the working distance, such as thick walls, drywall covered with aluminum foil, metal objects such as cabinets, general radio interference, etc. However, the range is sufficient for most domestic use. It is recommended to test the radio transmission between devices before mounting the regulator on the wall. The test can be performed by changing the set temperature, i.e. by activating or deactivating the heating.



  1. Press TEST / PAIRING button to check the connection with the receiver.
  2. Antenna icon will display. Test mode can take up to 9 minutes.
  3. The red LED and the green LED on the receiver will begin to flash.SALUS-RT510RF-Programmable-Room-Thermostat-User-Manual-FIG-29
