After carefull checks, against various calibrated thermometers, I have found that as this thermostat warms itself up it tends to read at least 3 degrees above the actual room temperature.
Hence the room temperature is likely to be at least 3 degrees colder than the temperature you set, but it would seem this can vary quite a lot, depeding on the electrical load on the thermostat and how long it has been switched on.
Anyone with any understanding of thermodynamics would have put the temperature sensor at the bottom of the device, so that it was not warmed by the heat it generates itself.
I don't know why they bother to display the temperature to 0.1 degrees, as it means nothing and is a waste that could be better used to make the thing work better.
Another problem I found is that the temperature adjustment can only be made with increasing 1C steps. To reduce the temperature setting you have to take it right up to 50C and then it starts at 0C again. This seems a case of needly penny pinching to save the cost of the extra button needed to decrease the temperature.
This device is ok if you want a crude temperature regulation of an electrical heater, but most electrical heaters now have these built in, so this device can be a waste of money.
I bought two of these to provide what I hoped would be a more accurate means of controlling the room temperature, but have been very disapointed with their performance.
The makers of this device need to go away and rethink its design, so it works properly and is easier to control.
and it has worked faultlessly. Slim white plug-in, and compact
enough to fit amongst other plugs on a 4 way adaptor, though keep
it away from other sources of heat (e.g.transformers) as it is very
sensitive to ambient temperature. Simple three button set-up, dead
easy. Current room temperature is clearly displayed in the LCD window.
There is a rechargeable battery backup for when the mains power fails.
I use it to control a 1500 watt panel heater, which keeps the room
temperaure at exactly 21 degrees Centigrade.
There are no problems with the boat wiring or input power supply, so I presume that the ET05 had some internal fault.
As a thermostat it works well but you must read the instructions carefully.
