  • Page 3: Control Selection Guide

    Use this guide to make sure that all necessary components are provided for and that the components are compatible with the required control system. NOTE: When thermostatic fan control is selected or when unit outside air dampers are used, unit-mounted thermostats are not recommended as their use will result in poor room temperature sensing.

    STANDARD WIRING PACKAGES IMPORTANT: Wiring diagrams shown depict typical control functions. Refer to unit wiring label for spe- cific functions. Manual Fan Control — On all Vertical Cabinet units, the standard fan-speed switch is furnished unit-mounted and wired. On all Vertical Furred-In units and all Horizontal units, the switch is shipped separately on a decorative wall plate for field mounting and wiring.

    Thermostatic Fan Control, 2-Pipe System with Safety Cycle — This control is used for high humidity situations in which condensate problems can occur if fan is turned off while chilled water is still running through the coil. The wiring provides fan cycling from HIGH to LOW on the cooling cycle and from LOW to OFF on the heating cycle.

  • Page 6: With Valve Control

    STANDARD WIRING PACKAGES (cont) Thermostatic 2-Pipe Auxiliary Electric Heat with Valve Control — This system, also called Twi- light or Intermediate Season electric heat, goes a long way towards solving the spring and fall control problems of 2-pipe systems. You can run chilled water late into the fall, turn it on early in the spring and still have heat available to all units when- ever required.

    Thermostatic 2-Pipe Total Electric Heat with- Valve Control — With this system, the complete heat- ing requirement for the space is provided by the electric heater; the water system is never changed over for heating. It is there- fore possible, just as with 4-pipe systems, to have heating or cooling at any time of the year.

    ELECTRIC HEAT Application — Electric heaters are available for in-stallation on Carrier fan coil units in the following applications. TOTAL ELECTRIC HEAT — This system provides com- plete heating during the heating season; no boiler is re- quired. Heating and cooling are now available on an indi- vidual basis throughout the year with a 2-pipe system.
