New to the forum, so big hello to everyone here :)
Just purchased a DWS800 underfloor heating kit with an XSTAT controller.
I have some questions regarding the XSTAT connections wich I am hoping someone will be able to shed some light on for me. I have basic instructions with it, but just wanted to see if anyone else here has fitted one and can offer any better advice for connecting it up.
(1) I am planning on taking the supply from the ring main into a 13A switch plate, then up to the xstat from there. Am I correct in using 2.5 mains twin and earth from the switch plate to the xstat ?
(2) On the connection side of the xstat there are 8 terminals and I want to make sure that I connect everything in the correct place. Including the mains supply cable, there will be a 2 core heating wire and also a 2 core floor sensor to connect.
The connections are as follows:
1: L - 230VAC/50Hz
2: N - 230VAC/50Hz
3: N - MAX LOAD 3600W/16A
4: L - MAX LOAD 3600W/16A
5: EXT ( Apparently not used )
6: Sensor 2
7: Sensor 2 & Sensor 1
8: Sensor 1
I have spoken the people at warmup who advised on the 13A switchplate, but would not tell me which connections go where for everything else.
I am guessing supply to terminals 1&2, the heating wires to 3&4 and sensor to 7&8 ( not sure which way around )
Also do I need to earth the supply coming up to the stat from the 13A switch plate ? I will be using a 35mm drylining plastic drylining box for the 13A plate.
Sorry its lengthy, just wanted to give as much info as possible.
