ances. The controls include a safety shutoff, a
manual valve, two automatic operators, a pres-
sure regulator, a pilot adjustment screw and a
conduit cover (VR4204 only).
VR8204 used with S8600, S8610 and S8620 Control
Modules.
VR4204 used with 120 Vac intermittent ignition mod-
ules.
VR8204 for use with 24 Vac heating appliances and
VR4204 for use with 120 Vac heating appliances that
burn natural or manufactured gas, or liquified petroleum
(LP) gas.
Capacity rated at 150 cfh at 1 in. wc pressure drop
3
[4.2 m
/hr at 0.25 kPa].
Solenoid-operated first automatic valve opens on ther-
mostat call for heat and closes when call for heat ends.
Diaphragm-operated second automatic valve opens un-
der control of the regulator and closes if gas or power
supply is interrupted.
Two-position gas control knob has ON and OFF posi-
tions.
All adjustments and wiring connections are accessible
from top of the control.
Compact size.
Straight-through body pattern; right angle adapters avail-
able for inlet and outlet.
1/2 in. inlet and 1/2 in. outlet; adapters available for 3/8
or 3/4 in.
VR8204; VR4204
Adjustable servo regulator effectively maintains almost
constant gas output pressure under wide fluctuations in
gas supply pressure.
Inlet and outlet screens included.
Pilot filter included.
Wiring terminal block color-coded orange to indicate
intermittent pilot control.
May be installed at any angle between 0 and 90 degrees
from the upright position, including vertically.
1/4 in. male quick-connect terminals for electrical con-
nections.
0° F to 175 F° [-18° C to +79° C] temperature range
standard; -40° F to 175° F [-40° C to +79° C] available.
lnlet and outlet pressure taps provided; both taps acces-
