WV8860C Water Heater Controls
The WV8860 Water Heater Control is designed for use in
Standing Pilot applications using an immersion well for
water temperature sensing. All models of WV8860
include an integrated NTC temperature sensor.
The WV8860 design includes an input for reading an
NTC temperature sensor. The control uses this sensor to
read and capture the temperature profile of surfaces
with maximum temperatures up to 300°F (150°C).
Applications of this feature include characterizing the
water heater combustion chamber temperature during
burner operation to indicate if the burner is operating
The WV8860 is powered from a thermopile heated by the
standing pilot flame. CS88 pilot assemblies are
designed for use with this control.
The immersion well for sensing water temperature has
matched NTC thermistor sensors. These sensors
provide the fail-safe mechanism through which the
WV8860 can provide both accurate water temperature
control as well as water temperature limit (Temperature
Cut-Out [TCO]) function.
WV8860 controls provide direct replacement
