I've used it a couple of time and I like it. Very easy to install and minimal work to install.

    Radiant made easy with the RMB-1

    The RMB-1 has been very successful because it gives you all the components required for your radiant project. The RMB is very versatile, and can be set up as an outdoor reset, setpoint, or straight delta T limiting control. For your reference I have the attached the instruction sheet.

    How could the RMB-1 effectively interface with the tN4 network? When will it be tN4 compatable?

    I like it, but

    one thing that I was not aware of, is that can only be set to run as high as 150*. Which of course is just fine for radiant, but if you are doing staple up be aware of this. I also think that Taco needs to put a couple of wire access holes on the sides, as this would, in my opinion, make it much easier to wire.

    It does definitaly speed up your install time, and seems to be very well built. Nicely laid out too!

    If you want to prioritize the DHW, be ready to be a bit inventive with some kind of timed relay, or just size the boiler to be able to handle both loads.

    I would give it a 7.5 out of 10!

    it will not...

    ...immediately interface with tN4. It could be used together where you still get all the features and functions of the tN4 stats (IE: Sharing of temperatures, scheduling, zone synchronisation, Cooling Groups aso.), except for Indoor Temperature Feedback and the RMB would still be considered a stand alone product.

    Hope this helps.

    Are you sure about that temp limit? I though it went to 180 or at least 160-165 degrees? EDIT: yes page 15 of the manual Joe linked says it's max temp is 180. The 150 is just what they show on there chart.

    As far as domestic water, I use an SR control for my primary circ so I use the priority on the SR.

    Thanx Ted,

    I have an application, where we wanted to get the mix temp up to about 160-170. The controll would only show a target of 150 max, and the actual temp would not go over 155. I will download the manual that Joe linked, maybe the manual I had is out of date.

    What is an SR control?

    AARRGGHHH! Sorry Taco!

    Sometimes, when you actually have time to understand what you're reading, things become clear! I was trying to adjust the min temp! That is why I couldn't get the heated water beyond 150*!!!!

    "Nevermind!" (in my best Lily Tomlin voice)
