The RLV430 thermostat can be used to control an electric heating
system such as a baseboard heater, a radiant floor, a radiant ceiling,
a convector or a fan-forced heater.
The thermostat cannot be used with the following:
a resistive load under 2 A
a resistive load over 14.6 A
systems driven by a contactor or a relay (inductive load)
central heating systems
One (1) thermostat
Two (2) 6-32 mounting screws
Two (2) solderless connectors
TURN OFF POWER TO THE HEATING SYSTEM AT THE MAIN
