Thermostat Installation for Geothermal Made Easy

Jackson Systems GEO-200™ radiant floor heat interface panel is designed to control a geothermal radiant floor heating system and a forced air geothermal system from a single room thermostat. This makes it possible for a contractor to spend less time wiring units to the thermostat, eliminating the frustration with a simple, inexpensive panel. The panel also simplifies the servicing of a system and gives a clean, professional look to the installation.

 

Heating Mode

The GEO-200™ interface panel is designed to control a radiant floor heating system and a forced air heat pump from a 3 stage heat / 2 stage cool thermostat. On a call for first stage heat, the panel will energize the radiant floor pump or valve by closing a set of dry contacts. The fan will also be brought on at the same time. The contacts are labeled ‘FL’ on the panel terminal strip. On a call for second stage heat, the panel will energize the first stage heat pump compressor. On a call for third stage heat, the panel will bring on the electric auxiliary heat. If the unit has a second stage compressor, it will not be used during the heat mode.

 
Cooling Mode

On a call for first stage cooling, the panel will energize the first stage heat pump compressor and fan. On a call for second stage cooling, the panel will energize the second stage compressor. The GEO-200™ is for heat pumps that energize the reversing valve on a call for cooling.

 

Installation

 

Installation is easy and only takes a few steps. To give you an idea of just how simple installing is, the installation process is below:

 

1. Slide the PC board out of its base and screw the base to a flat surface in a location that allows easy access to wiring.

2. Re-install the PC board by carefully centering it over the base and snapping it into the track grooves.

3. Wire the heat pump thermostat to the terminals marked ‘HEAT PUMP THERMOSTAT’, then wire the radiant floor heating valve, pump or relay to the ‘FL’ terminals.

4. Wire the forced air heat pump to the ‘FORCED AIR HEAT PUMP UNIT’ terminals.
