outdoor reset for buderus gb142

Hi guy's is there a tekmar control besides the 260 control to install on the buderus gb boilers as to set up for outdoor reset .I was told tekmar was coming out with a control just for that boiler.
I am installing one & have 2 radiant zones & indirect hwh so i can't use the control supplied with unit (indoor comfort control).Really would like to use outdoor reset.
Thank you in advance for all input.

    Why not?

    use the Buderus mixing stations, one for each temp with a TC-62 outdoor reset mixing valve in each station. You can get the 2 module header. It will be neat and properly piped.

    Jim there was another post here about that

    I think there is a Taco relay that can be used in conjunction with the board on the Buderus to accomplish that. Wher's Mark Hunt when you need him? Oh Mark!!!!!!Mad Dog

    From what we heard, outdoor reset will be available in the months to come. Not yet though.

    Tekmar

    Jim,

    The Tekmar 270 can give you outdoor reset and domestic hot water, it will take over the modulation of the boiler, but you need the EM-10 interface module from Buderus.
    This control is new and the install man is not on the Tekmar web site.
    I have attached it below, you could also use the Tekmar 263 but it is about $250.00 more, also the new Tekmar TN4 boiler reset controls will also work, I think it is the TN4 420 Boiler reset module.
    If the file takes too long to download let me know I can email it to you.

    lets set the record straight.....

    Our version of outdoor reset is not available yet. The Tekmar 265 and 263 are in the near future. The EM-10 is not here yet. As i said in the past, i will provide details asap. Thank you for your interest. Our website will also reflect any changes as they become available.

    Not being... (ask Mark Hunt)

    The sharpest pencil in the box...Isn't an Outdoor Reset really designed for a larger volume cast iron boiler? The (beloved) GB142 is instant full on temp. We have sold 50+ and can't remember anyone asking for an outdoor reset.
    Help clarify this for me,
    Rick
