The T8611M Chronotherm III Programmable
Thermostat provides automatic control of multi-
stage heat pump systems and offers users the
highest standard of comfort and convenience
available with energy savings.
Full seven-day program capability; different sched-
ules may be selected for every day.
Can be programmed in hand (with batteries in-
stalled) or on the wall to provide up to four tem-
perature periods per day.
Large digital clock (liquid crystal display) indi-
cates continuous time-of-day, day-of-week, cur-
rent period and room temperature.
Adaptive Intelligent Recovery™ brings room tem-
perature to programmed temperature at program-
med time, maximizing comfort and energy sav-
ings.
Temperature control program maintains tempera-
ture within 1 F of setpoint.
Temporary program override available by using-
-WARMER and COOLER keys.
-SKIP next period key.
-CHANGE to last period key.
HOLD TEMP key provided for indefinite program
override (vacation/holiday).
Installer self-test with time delay override saves
installation time.
SYSTEM light-emitting diode (LED) on thermo-
temperature sensing.

    — unheated (uncooled) areas behind the sensor, such as an outside wall. IF REPLACING AN EXISTING THERMOSTAT Turn thermostat power off at furnace or heat pump. Installation This thermostat requires a single transformer. A two- transformer system may require turning off two switches or disconnects, and rewiring to run the thermostat from a single transformer.

    This light glows whenever the thermostat is calling for operation of the backup heater. Backup (auxiliary) heat is more expensive to operate than the heat pump, and typi- cally is used only when the heat pump is unable to handle the load (located on subbase). CHECK light (yellow) Consult heat pump literature to determine its meaning (located on subbase).
