Can I Have Another Thermostat as an Acting Relay?
3iE Energy-Monitoring Thermostat
Additional Thermostat as an Acting Relay
Each thermostat will need its own dedicated 20A circuit. Using a low voltage communication wire between both thermostats will allow one to act as a master and the other to serve as a relay.
When multiple floor heating systems require more than 15amps, you can substitute an additional 3iE instead of purchasing a relay.
If your floor heating system exceeds 30 amps, please contact us for other options. The second 3iE would be programmed as a “relay” to the primary thermostat which will serve as the “master” control.
Each thermostat/relay can handle a maximum of 15 amps. It will turn on and off in conjunction with the “Master” thermostat.
Two conductor wires go from terminals 2 & 3 from the master relay to terminals 2 & 3 of relay (slave) thermostat.
Note: When using the master/slave setup, please connect a floor probe to each thermostat.
Please refer to the installation manual for more information.
