The SALUS Quantum WQ610 and WQ610RF thermostats are Boiler Plus compatible thermostats, designed specifically to control central heating boilers and in the case of the RF versions, electrical panel heaters also. They have our new load compensation (ITLC) software with Volt free switch and also Opentherm 4.0 connections, so you can choose the method of control to suit your boiler / installation. Please note that the Boilers need to have an OpenTherm Association license to be fully compatible with WQ610 range (should you wish to connect to the OpenTherm terminals A and B). Please verify if this requirement is met with your Boiler Manufacturer.
