The T8400C and T8401C Thermostats provide single-
stage, non-programmable temperature control for 24V
heating-cooling systems with manual changeover from
heat to cool. Heating cycle rate is selectable at 1, 3, 4, 5,
6, or 9 cph. Cooling cycle rate is fixed at 3 cph.
Temperature indication can be set for °F or °C.
The T8400C Thermostat is powered through the heating/
cooling system controls. The T8401C Thermostat is
powered directly from the system transformer. Batteries
are not required because setpoints are held permanently
by non-volatile memory for all models.
All TRADELINE® models include a thermostat, wallplate
(for wiring and mounting thermostat) and owner's guide.
The T8400C SUPER TRADELINE® model also includes
two decorator cover plates for covering wallmarks.
If this control is replacing a control that contains
mercury in a sealed tube, do not place your old
control in the trash.
Contact your local waste management authority
for instructions regarding recycling and the
proper disposal of an old control containing
mercury in a sealed tube.
