HEATER CONTROLS AND INDICATORS
The description and function of the controls and indicators of the in-tent controller assembly are detailed
in Table 1. The manual reset thermostat located on the lower housing assembly is described in Table 2.
Table 1. In-Tent Control Assembly Controls and Indicators
Controls starting and stopping of the heater. Movement of the
ON/OFF switch from one position to another initiates the step-by-
step transition of the heater from one operating condition to
another (the OFF condition to the ON condition, or the ON
condition to the OFF condition). This step-by-step transition is
controlled and timed by the heater control assembly, and not by
the movement of the ON/OFF switch.
HEATER ON/ON-HOLD light
When lit, indicates the heater assembly is in one of the following
modes: 1) pre-purge, 2) normal operation, 3) on-hold. The on-
hold mode means that the heater is not operating but it is ready
to start in response to changes in the tent temperature or
changes to the LOWER-HIGHER control settings.
Controls the setpoint that the heater is trying to reach, thereby
controlling the heat output of the heater. Adjusting the control
knob causes the heater assembly to provide higher or lower heat
