              Great product with 2 caviats. I used it to teplace a 501s (non programmable) Poles/ternials 1-2 and 3-4 are switched from the 501s. They are clearly marked but i diidnt realize until i hooked it up and it didnt work. Easy enough to fix though. The other thing is that it was difficult to program. The programming instructions are poor and i had to call wirsbo for some help. And the installer,/user switch wS not clearly marked. All that said i love it and my radiant heat is working great.

              A Perfect Thermostat for Radiant Floors

                    Even though it costs considerably more, the Uponor programmable thermostat is well worth it. It is ideal for radiant floors that have a natural lag effect causing them to gain and lose heat slowly. I have a large contraflow masonary fireplace so I use both the air and floor sensors. The thermostat has other sensor options that can be used instead of the floor, such as a remote room option or an outdoor sensor. Air and floor temperatutes, as well as the target air temperature are all easy to scroll through and monitor. The thermostat uses microprocessor technology that calculates temperature differentials between current and target temperatures and ramps up according to need. An early start feature further improves performance. The thermostat is accurate. It doesn't overshoot. Instead, it starts cycling down as it approaches the set target. Other advantages are that it has an away feature that can be used without changing your programmed settings. It also has a night light option and it doesn't require a battery to maintain memory after loss of power.

                            Q:

                            How and where would the floor sensor be installed for a radiant floor system that is installed underneath exsiting wood floors by means of aluminum radiant panels?

                              A:

                              I installed this thermostat with a "staple up" under floor system with aluminum plates. I have tile floors and installed the temp sensor in between the tiles in one of the grout lines, then grouted over it. The sensor works fine and I get accurate floor readings of the surface temp.

                              I also used this thermastat with radiant under my hardwood floors. After
                              moving my floor sensor here and there I came to the conclusion that the
                              floor sensor is best used on floors with large thermal mass like concreat
                              slabs. I had best resalts using the built in air sensor only. Hope this
                              helps.

                              We actually installed ours UNDER the floor in between two radiant panels.
                              It is probably not the correct placement but it works fine.

                              Ideally the sensor should be as close to the floor surf ace as possible.
                              From below, a slot could possibly be routed/ cut into the subfloor
                              (below wood floor) to accommodate the sensor. I have seen a number of
                              installs that the installers have ran a tube for the sensor and wire in
                              the event the sensor fails. I would also insulate under the sensor to
                              attempt to make sure the reading is closer to the floor temp compared to
                              the basement temp.

                              I would install it between the flooring and the subfloor. The goal is to limit the temperature of the flooring material itself. The space under the subfloor where the radiant panels are located will run significantly hotter.  Brian

                              Good question. Not really sure. I guess you could drill it into the floor
                              between two of the plates???

                              I installed mine in a small hole under the tiles in the center of the floor
                              above a joist so it is far away from a pex line. I think if the tile is
                              already down, then carefully drill a shallow hole half way between the pex
                              lines, maybe drill into the corner where the floor joist and the plywood
                              meet. You don't want the heated air from the heat in the cavity under the
                              floor to affect the sensor.

                              This thermostat should be able to replace your existing thermostat, but it is unlikely that the same floor sensor would work with both of them.

I have 3 individual thermostats. Can I use 1 of these (total 3) programmables to control each zone?

                              These two items are very similar, but they are not exactly alike. The Setpoint 511 is priced higher and has more features.

                              I finally received an answer from Tekmar after I asked this question here:

                              "Essentially they are the same stat with minor differences: The Uponor/Wirsbo 511 does not have a preprogrammed schedule, only has one AUX sensor input, and no remote temp monitoring setting"

                              So, contrary to the other answer, it appears the Tekmar 510 has more features, and is less expensive.

                            I've heard of people using a 3/4" PVC pipe into the slab, filling it with oil (olive oil, salad oil, or the like), and feeding the sensor into that. That way if the unit fails, it may be replaced. The oil helps accurately transfer slab temp and not air temp in the tube. Would this sensor work with such a setup? (i.e. is the sensor OK in liquid?)
