Anticipator setting question?
I have a triangle tube 110 that has one finned baseboard zone wired directly to the trimax board. The circulator is a taco 007 and the tstat is a honeywell t87.
My question is this, what anticipator setting should I set the tstat to? The i/o of the tt 110 says to set it to .2 but I have read that if you are using a circulator in baseboard applications, set the anticipator to the amp draw of the pump.
"For hydronic fin tube radiation, set the anticipator to match the amp draw of the zone valve or zone pump. That will give you six cph, which means that the heat will come on (if it’s needed) six times an hour or every 10 minutes. For cast iron radiators and infloor radiant, multiply the amp draw of the load by 1.2. That will give you three cph, or the heat on every 20 minutes. "
"The bigger the numbers on the anticipator, even though they are merely decimals, the longer the cycle. That means the heat comes on less often, but is on longer. It also means greater temperature swings and less comfort. So setting the anticipator at one extreme end or the other will get you either rapid cycling or big temperature swings — neither desirable."
Thanks for any and all help.
