I tried to call Raypak but they weren't very helpful. While I am waiting / working through their internal technical support maze, I figure I may try to ask experts on the forum here.
I have a Raypak RP2100 Digital that I want to control with my home automation system (not pool automation). All I want to do is to turn on and off the heater remotely, and when the water is heated to a certain temperature (say 85F), turn off the pool heater.
I see that the unit can be turned on and off by a 2 wire dry contact switch. My question is - what happens when the heater is in the remote on state? Let's say I have set the heater to pool mode 85F before I put it in remote control mode. When the heater is in the remote on state, does it then go to pool mode 85F and turn off by itself when water reaches 85F, or will the heater keep working until it's turned off by the remote?
