- Compatible with Dimplex single or 4-zone multi heater programmers.
- ‘Apollo’ bathroom model also available.
1 Function control
User selection of “comfort”, “background” (4oC below the thermostat setting) and “frost protection” (5oC), off and programmed operation (if programmer is fitted). Neon indicator shows function selected.
2 Thermostat Dial
The dial is marked * to 9. The * setting represents a room temperature of approximately 5oC and may be used for protection against frost. The other settings range up to a maximum room temperature of approximately 35oC. A neon indicator shows when the element is operating.
3 Plug-in control modules
A range of optional plug in control modules is available for use with the RPX:
–Single zone pilot wire programmer (RX9911) controls up to 20 slave heaters linked via pilot wire. Provides 7 day control, switching heater between comfort and setback mode. Can be removed from heater for easy programming.
–Single zone mains borne signalling programmer (RX9912)controls multiple slave heaters, with RX9913 MBS receivers fitted to each slave. Provides 7 day control, switching heater between comfort and setback modes.
Multi Zone Control
Compatible with Dimplex 4-zone pilot wire and mains borne signalling controllers.
(RX9913 receivers required for MBS systems)
Two mineral filled sheathed electric elements are embedded in aluminium heating plates. Low element operating temperature of around 200oC reduces air drying effects and dust burning. The heating plates have a unique design – the forward face is finished in matt black and has greater surface area to maximise radiant heat. The reverse side is in its natural smooth aluminium state to minimise heat loss to the wall. The design provides an even temperature across the front panel, using the whole surface area available and maximises the throw of radiant heat into the room.

Dimplex electronic panel heaters feature highly accurate electronic thermostats, providing superior comfort and operating efficiency. As the room temperature nears the desired set point, power to the elements is reduced, and the room temperature closely monitored to an accuracy of 0.1oC, minimising overshoot and temperature drift, resulting in better energy efficiency and user comfort.
Being electronic, control is virtually noiseless and reliable.
