Connection is done as a rule via an earthed 230 V socket. A 16 ampere fuse is required for a heating rating of 2500 watts and more. We recommend a socket with its own fuse that will only be used for the radiator heater. Only tested H05VV-F 3-1.5 mm2 cable should be used for the connecting cables.
The accessories that were included in the scope of supply should be used for the installation of the electric heater. Never use adhesives for the installation. An ideal installation area is an outer wall of a room to ensure an even distribution of heat throughout the room. Alternatively, installation on inside walls is also possible, but this can lead to poor circulation of the warmth within the room. We recommend operation using thermostats that are available separately to ensure even heating in the room. The surface of the radiator heater heats up to a maximum of 70 °C, so there is no risk of burns.
Ensure nonetheless that the socket that the radiator heater has been plugged into must always be easily accessible. The radiator heater may not be set up immediately underneath wall sockets; we suggest a safe distance of 30 cm as a guideline value. Ensure that the radiator heater is not covered during operation, as that would cause a risk of fire. Note when installing electric heaters in bathrooms that the heater must be set up at a safe distance from the bathtub, shower or bathing pool to ensure that it cannot be operated by persons in them. However, the radiator heater is protected against sprayed water. The room thermostats are to be installed such that they cannot be touched by a person in the bathtub or in the shower.
It is necessary to comply with the stipulation of VDE 0700, part 701 in the installation. In the case of a fixed installation there must be an all-phase circuit breaker in accordance with the installation regulations and which meets overvoltage category III. Please note that the connection of an electric radiator heater or the connecting of replacement of the mains connecting cable may only be done by a qualified electrician. Comply with the regulations of the local electricity utility. If the mains connecting cable for the radiator heater is damaged, this must be replaced either by the maker, his after sales service section, or a qualified electrician.
