I have a customer who has a 1960's line voltage thermostat... They want a "modern clock stat".. anyone come across one that fits a standard gem box..
I use them at work all the time.
I keep that adjustment knob on top, in my tool pouch.
Of course ours don't read in that Celsius scale.

Honeywell or Aube. Looks to be the same thing. Mor electric heating has a bunch of different thermostats including those.

What did you end up using?
I had to run new stat lines and put them in a better location.. the customer also wanted more of a selection for the stats...

I put in (2) cheap LV stats till THEY find something they like...

So you're using a relay instead?

Yes... I have always used that brand when doing LV stats...
I guess I'm missing something here - do the relays control line voltage baseboards? If so, I didn't think the Taco relays had the current rating for that.

Ok...how much current are you running through the Taco relay? I thought they were only rated for 10 amps, single pole? :blink:

I think you are really confused... :blink::blink:

The circulator pump takes less than (2) amps....
