The electric heater is activated by the start output of the Access controller. The electric heater is activated when demand for heating arises or with additional condition of minimal airflow - "flow interlock".

Flow interlock - the heater is only started if the fan has reached the minimal airflow required for fan run indication.

It is recommended to use heater with internal overheat protection. The output of the thermostat is captured by the input of the controller and is interpreted as an overheat alarm in case of tripping.


The table below shows a configuration example of the single stage electric heater with an alarm feedback.
