GENERAL  
Carrier’s Aquazone 7-day, commercial, programmable ther-  
mostats are wall-mounted, low-voltage thermostats which  
maintain room temperature by controlling the operation of an  
HVAC (heating, cooling and ventilation) system. Separate  
heating and cooling set points and auto-changeover capability  
allow occupied and unoccupied programming schedules for  
energy savings.  
Fig. 1 — Thermostat Display  
All thermostats allow up to 3 occupied and one unoccupied  
time/temperature setting to be programmed per 24-hour period.  
Each thermostat stores programs for 7 independent days.  
Batteries are not required. During power interruption the inter-  
nal NEVERLOST™ memory stores programs for an unlimited  
time.  
Heat or Cool Indicator — A Heat or Cool indicator is  
located on the bottom left cover of the thermostat. See Fig. 2.  
The light will be red if the thermostat is in Heating mode. The  
light will be green if the thermostat is in Cooling mode.  
IMPORTANT: The thermostat has a configurable security  
level. If certain functions are not available (changing set  
points, changing programming schedules), the thermostat  
security level may be configured to exclude those func-  
tions. Call the installer to reconfigure the security level.  
Thermostat Front Panel Buttons — The thermostat  
has buttons on the front cover which are used to raise or lower  
the desired set point and override the current program. See  
Fig. 2.  
SET POINT BUTTONS — The UP ARROW and DOWN  
ARROW buttons will raise or lower the current desired tem-  
perature set point. If the thermostat is in AUTO mode, pressing  
the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW buttons will adjust both  
the heating and cooling set points. Pressing the UP ARROW or  
DOWN ARROW buttons in Cooling mode will adjust only the  
cooling set points. Pressing the UP ARROW or DOWN  
ARROW buttons in Heating mode will adjust only the heating  
set points. The UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons are  
also used in Programming mode.  
A light sensor is provided on the thermostat for light activa-  
tion. When the sensor detects light (the space is occupied), the  
thermostat will enter Occupied 1 mode. If the room is dark, the  
thermostat will follow its programmed schedule.  
Manufacturer reserves the right to discontinue, or change at any time, specifications or designs without notice and without incurring obligations.

If COOL is selected, the thermostat will only enter Cooling  
mode (if the room temperature is above the cooling set point).  
If AUTO is selected, the thermostat will enter Heating or Cool-  
ing mode based on the room temperature and the heating and  
cooling set points. If PROGRAM ON is selected, the stored  
schedule is enabled and the thermostat will follow the Occu-  
pied and Unoccupied schedules stored in its memory.  
Thermostat Programming Buttons — The thermo-  
stat has programming buttons which are used to change the set  
points of the thermostat, set the modes, and program schedules.  
The programming buttons are accessible from underneath the

the hinged thermostat cover. See Fig. 3. The programming  
buttons are: Mode, Fan, Holiday, Program, and Set Clock.  
Auto-Changeover — When the thermostat mode is set to  
AUTO, the thermostat will provide automatic changeover from  
Heating to Cooling mode and Cooling to Heating mode when  
required. The thermostat will automatically switch to maintain  
the desired temperature setting. The thermostat does not need  
to be manually changed from heating to cooling or cooling to  
heating operation.  
HOLIDAY MODE — The Holiday button places the thermo-  
stat into Holiday mode. During Holiday mode, the unoccupied  
set points are enforced. The number of days the thermostat will  
be in Holiday mode can be set.  
The UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons are used to  
scroll through programming set points. The buttons are also  
used to answer yes or no.
