Control 3 Taco SR501's with one Thermostat?
I’m a homeowner (well, the bank owns the home!) but pretty handy with things around the house. Couldn’t find anything close enough in the archive…
I currently have three zones of radiant floor each controlled by three separate thermostats: I’d like to control all of them with a single thermostat. Each zone is controlled by a Taco SR501 switching relay. The single thermostats are cheap Honeywell two-wire, non-programable models.
I’m not sure why the original owner put these in three separate zones in the first place. It’s a large kitchen with each part on it’s own zone and the three t-stats in a line on the same wall. The wife wants them all on together...
I bought a RIBL3C 3 Relay enclosure thinking that I could wire the thermostat to that and then each Taco zone controller to the RIB. However, I’m confused by all of the wires from the RIB. Is the RIB the wrong product to do this?
Will I need to add a transformer for the RIB? Currently each zone controller has it’s own transformer inside but nothing to power the RIB.
Is there some better (not too expensive) option?
Advice? Thanks in advance…
