CONNECTIONS – ELECTRICAL
All electrical work and permanent wiring must be carried out by a qualified person and in accordance with the
Wiring Rules AS/NZS 3000 and all local codes and regulatory authority requirements.
Warning: Temperature controllers must not be fitted to this water heater (874 series) if it is installed as
an in-series gas booster with a solar water heater system because water at a temperature much higher than
the controller setting can be delivered. If a solar water heater is installed to an existing water heater
installation, then all controllers must be disconnected and removed.
The water heater is supplied with a 1.8 metre lead and plug and requires a weatherproof 240 V 50 Hz
general purpose outlet (GPO) to be located within 1.2 metres of the installation. The GPO must be clear of
the flue exhaust, draining water, gas supply pipe and water connections.
The power consumption of the water heater is:
627 – Burner on, anti frost device inactive
627 – Burner on, anti frost device active
The water heater will only operate on a sine wave at 50 Hz. Devices generating a square wave cannot be
used to supply power to the water heater.
