Comments about Outdoor Remote Sensor (for 90 series thermostats):

This is the second one I have owned. Both perform flawlessly. Easy to install. Would've been nice to have the shielded wiring recommended with it, but I purchased 25' of it at a local HVAC facilty.

  • Outdoor Remote Sensor (for 90 series thermostats)

    Q:

    Can the mounting base be installed in an attic where it experiences extreme heat in the summer and cold in the winter and how do you run the wires out of the mounting base with the cover on it? It looks like the cover will seriously pinch any wires I try to run out of it.

      A:

      I installed my wires enter from the back.There are spacers for mounting the base so the wires will not be pinched. I do not know about mounting in the attic. I did not due to the concerns of heat and cold

      A:

      I mounted mine in the attic space with no issues, its been working fine for the last two years. i mounted the sensor underneath the soffit, though it does tend to get incorrectly hot readings when the sun faces that wall at certain times of the day. i don't recall having any wire pinching issues, (installed it two years ago) but i wouldn't worry about the cover being on there super tight, just notch it with a knife if you have to make it fit.

      I am not sure if you can put the unit in that temperature extreme.Mine is mounted in my heated crawlspace and covered with insulation.The probe end I ran outside the house.If you put it in an attic your outside temperature reading will not be accurate,I don't know what your trying to do with the unit.Mine alrays reads 4 degrees high for some reason. The wires on mine were not a problem I used 18 gauge shielded wire,these are very thin. Good Luck,Joe

      A:

      The specification sheet, that's included with this unit,  states that the operating range is "-40F to 140F, 0 to 90% RH (no- condensing). The temperature in your attic depends on  factors
      like outdoor ambient, exposure to sunlight how well it is insulated and ventilated etc. You'll have to do that research. The sensor cable and the cable, that connects the base unit to the thermostat, enters the base unit  from behind. The base unit is mounted on 2 spacers which gives the cables room to enter the unit  through  a slot.. See the pictorial for mounting the outdoor sensor.

    Q:

    The indoor base for this sensor seems identical to the "1328 Indoor Remote Sensor" except for the terminals needed to connect the outdoor probe wires. Does the 1378 function as BOTH an indoor AND outdoor sensor?

      A:

      The indoor base does not have an internal sensor. You can't mount the remote probe outdoors for one temperature reading and get a second temperature reading from the base.

      I have only installed this outdoor sensor once in my personal home.As far as I know it only works as an outdoor sensor.I'm not sure if you could use it to be an indoor sensor,but it only gives one temperature not both. Good Luck,Joe

      A:

      It is designed for outdoor sensing however it could also serve as a remote inside temp. sensor.
      In a finished room you would need to be able to appropriately hide or enclose the wire and probe end.

      A:

      Not sure I understand, However the pictured unit is what I used to connect to from the indoor Rheem thermostat which had the terminal to allow outdoor temperature displayed on the thermostat. It was connected by wire from thermostat to the indoor terminal (iunside house) and then went from the terminal via the supplied sensor wire (plug insert) to the outside where i mounted the outdoor sensor. This allowed the outdoor temperature to be shown on the indoor thermostat (like I said it had a feature to do this).
      The indoor temperature is provided by the thermostat itself.
      Its a cool feature to se the outdoor temp on my indoor thermostat. Mount the probe in a shady location to get the right temp.
      Hope this helps.

  • Outdoor Remote Sensor (for 90 series thermostats)

    Q:

    The instructions say that the remote outdoor sensor base (interface board) needs to be mounted "indoors" but they don't say what that means exactly. I'm not sure if this is an operating temperature requirement or what. Can it be mounted outdoors if it's protected from the weather, like in an enclosure?

      A:

      According to the manufacturer the base can be mounted outdoors, as long as it is enclosed. It can withstand cold temperatures, but not rain and moisture.

    Q:

    If I use this out door sensor with an airhandler that has electric heat and a heatpump will it shut the heatpump off when it gets below the balance point?

      A:

      This sensor is designed for use with White Rodgers 90 Series thermostats. If you have a 90 Series Thermostat and use this sensor, you can connect the thermostat to the air handler and control the air handler using the outdoor temperature. However this sensor is not made to connect directly to an air handler.
