The new Heat-only Thermostat with Touchscreen (A3100101) is designed for precise temperature control of residential hydronic radiant heating systems based on operative temperature sensing capabilities. The thermostat can operate a hydronic radiant heating sys- tem based on the air sensor measuring operative temperature, a floor sensor (purchased separately), or a combina- tion of both to provide the optimal level of comfort and control. The floor sen- sor not only provides enhanced thermal comfort, but it also protects the floor's surface from overheating. The new Heat-only Thermostat with Touchscreen will replace Uponor's existing heat-only Thermostat (A3030101). Uponor www.uponorpro.com EXPANDABLE GRUNDFOS HYDRONIC ZONE CONTROLS The expandable Grundfos UPZC series of zone controls manage circulator and boiler control in residential hydronic heating sys- tems. The non-networked devices control up to six heating zones and can be coupled together in various configurations to accommodate any application. Boiler pumps, domestic hot water pumps, system pumps and pump priority are all controlled from the UPZC control. The zone relay control connects to standard thermostats using either two or three wires. The optional third wire provides 24VAC to thermostats that require external power.
