A quick feature guide on our run-back timers

Our run-back time control heating system is designed to be energy and cost efficient.

The SLPB, SLVT, SLVTB, SLPIR and SLPBWP single zone wireless controllers have a run-back timer function which allows a heating cycle to be operational only when the controller is activated. These controllers are easy to install and set up, and can operate multiple SL heaters including low surface temperature heaters. All controllers have easy-to-use control buttons except for the SLPIR.

This cost effective heating system is suitable for many commercial and domestic premises such as offices, student accommodation, hotels, modular buildings or homes.

Run-back timer for controlling energy costs

The 4-stage run-back timer function in the SLPB, SLVT and SLVTB controllers allows the heating to be active for a time period selected by users making it ideal for areas such as hotels or student accommodation.

Users can activate the heating using the pre-set time segments set by the building owners or operators. There is a choice of three time segments available: 5, 15 or 30 minutes. When the main control button is pressed four times, this takes the run-back time period to 20, 60 or 120 minutes.

  Button press x 1 Button press x 2 Button press x 3 Button press x 4
Time segments (minutes) Heating period (minutes) Heating period (minutes) Heating period (minutes) Heating period (minutes)

The SLPIR and SLPBWP are the latest controllers in our run-back time control range. The SLPIR controller is a motion activated run-back timer which activates a full heating period when a movement is detected. It increases comfort and convenience for its users as heating remains active as long as users move within the motion sensor range.

The SLPBWP is a waterproof run-back timer. It is IP65 rated which makes it ideal for outdoors, bathrooms and other wet areas.
