Overview

  • Sensor used to transmit temperature to ColorTouch Thermostat
  • Ideal for indoor or outdoor installation
  • -20 - 120° temperature range

Essential Info

The Venstar ACC-TSEN Remote Indoor/Outdoor Air Temperature Sensor measures indoor or outdoor air temperature with a range of -20 to 120° F. If used indoors as a remote temperature sensor, the sensor will read room temperature and send the information to the ColorTouch thermostat. If used as an outdoor temperature sensor, the sensor may be used to provide outdoor temperature information (which is not used to control heating or cooling). The Air Temperature Sensor should be mounted out of direct sunlight and in a place that is protected from direct rain and snow. Mounting the sensor under an eave of a roof or under an overhang of a building is recommended. Connect the Remote Sensor using 18 - 22 gauge 2 conductor unshielded thermostat wire not to exceed 200 feet.

  • More Info

    Outdoor Locations
    The Venstar Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor should be mounted on the north side of the building, out of direct sunlight, and in a place that is protected from direct rain and snow. Mounting the sensor under an eave of a roof or under an overhang of a building is recommended. If the Outdoor Sensor is mounted on a rough surface, it is recommended that silicon rubber sealant be used around the entire edge of the mounting plate. If mounting on an electrical junction box, be sure the seal between the junction box and sensor mounting plate is tight.

    Indoor Locations
    The Venstar Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor should be mounted approximately five feet from the floor, close to or in a frequently used room, preferably on an inside partitioning wall or on a section of wall without pipes or ductwork. Mount the sensor where temperature operating limits are within 32° F to 99° F and where humidity operating range is within 0% to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing.

    Incorrect Locations
    The Venstar Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor should NOT be mounted close to a window, on an outside wall, or next to a door leading to the outside. Do not mount the sensor in a location where it would be exposed to direct light and heat from a lamp, the sun, a fireplace, or any other temperature-radiating object which may cause a false reading. Finally, do not mount the sensor close to or in direct airflow from supply registers or return air grilles and in areas with poor air circulation (such as behind a door or in an alcove).

    I returned this item due to unacceptable quality of the T6800. Have not installed, forced to rate to submit other reviews.
    THOMAS -- chicago, IL   11/29/2013
    Not yet installed as I need one additional wire that might be difficult to run.
    KEVIN -- tucson, AZ   1/19/2013
    Have not installed yet; it requires a hard-wired connection to the sensor. I'll get to that later.
    DAN -- homer glen, IL   1/10/2013
    Easy to install and does what it's supposed to do. No problems at all.
    STENNETT -- houston, TX   7/12/2012
    Sensor works well. It was very easy to install and the outdoor temp showed up as soon as it was connected. Very pleased.
    MIKE -- fort worth, TX   7/29/2011
    Easy to install, good and simple directions. I installed this in conjunction with a Venstar T5800 T-stat - as soon as the sensor was connected, the outside temperature reading was there on the T-Stat screen, and it was a believable reading.
