Switching 230V Wireless


Monty

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Hoping someone may be able to help.

I am wanting to switch a boiler signal wireless (not using a stat)

i have a underfloor heating control box, and using the volt free contacts within the unit to activate a transmitter. this then sends a signal to a receive unit which then closes its contacts sending a signal to the boiler.

does anyone know where i can get such a transmit and receive unit that will achieve this?

Oh by the way the electrician didn't pull in the cable from UFH unit to boiler hence my predicament,

 

Many thanks in advance

How good are your DIY electronic skills?

 

you could put something together from the modules that CPC sell, but it won't be quite an off the shelf solution, but it will be cheaper. http://cpc.farnell.com/radio-frequency-control-systems/prl/results

 anything out there a bit cheaper.

 

How much cheaper?

 

I have seen some kit that costs £5, so it is cheaper.

But what you have to ask is, how reliable is it, is it really suitable for what is needed and will the supplier still be around in 6 months time.

 

Also I should point out that you will still have to run a cable to power the transmitter. Yes you can opt for a battery transmitter, but when will the battery fail? when you least want it to and when you have forgotten its there is the answer.

 

Also being as its radio what if you install it, then find out the walls between the transmitter and receiver are foil lined?

 

Bite the bullet and install a cable. job done, wont fail, works no matter what the wall is made of, never needs batteries.

This rate it'll be cheaper to employ a cleaner and just call them when you want the thing switched on!
