This economical series of room temperature sensors
is designed for use in KMC Digital or other building
automation systems. They incorporate a Type II 10,000
ohm (@ 77° F) thermistor for the sensing element,
providing precise, stable temperature sensing. The
durable, low-profile thermostat-style cover is visually
appealing. These sensors may be surface mounted on
a hollow wall or to a 2 x 4 in. electrical box. Besides
the basic thermistor of the STE-6011, the other
models include the following features.
An STE-6014/6017/6019/6018/6020 includes a
rotary setpoint dial (available in degrees
F or C).
An STE-6013/6015/6017/6019/6018/6020 allows
selection of an override condition by pushing
the button on the front. A green status LED (not on
the STE-6017/6019) illuminates according to the user-defined
controller configuration (e.g., during setback/setup
or during normal/override modes).
An STE-6012/6016 includes an LCD display
for the room temperature and setpoint. The temperature
display can be toggled between Fahrenheit and Celsius
scales. The setpoint is adjustable via the
up and down arrow buttons on the front panel. If the
system is in normal/override mode, pressing a button
will raise or lower the setpoint. When either button
is pushed, the display will toggle from room temperature
to the setpoint. When the button is released, the
number displayed is the new setpoint, and the display
will return to room temperature after ten seconds.
If the system is in setback/setup (for heating/cooling)
mode, pressing either button selects override
An STE-6010/6014/6015/6016/6017/6018 includes
a four-pin EIA-485 (formerly RS-485) data port
on the cover's underside for easy temporary computer
connection to the network. (Access with a KMD-5624
If humidity readings in addition to temperature are
desired, see the THE-1102 humidity transmitter.
With a CMOS chip sensor, it has outstanding linearity,
sensitivity, and reliability. The humidity sensor
is packaged with the same thermistor and case as the
Light almond color is standard. White is also available
(at an extra charge for quantities less than 250).
