    Contractor #1 installed 2) Carrier FE4 infinity fan coils.
    The low voltage saftey of the condensate pumps are not tied in (I found out when the 2nd floor flooded last summer)
    Fired #1 (no insurance), units installed and up and running

    Contractor #2, Hired him to come in and check the charge on the units and check over the install, $900.00 later, and He does not se how the condensate low voltage can tie into the FE4's Board.

    Contractor #3 - he does not know.

    So how does the Condensate low voltage "cutout" tie into the Infinity system. I have all the manuals (tech and owner)
    and it never mentions the condensate pump ??

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Normally you break either the power to the thermostat or if cooling only, break the signal to the outdoor unit. I would think that would still be possible but dash, our Infinity fan, better confirm.

    It's one thing ,that Infinities designers overlooked.It can be done though it will cut all low voltage to the control,and provide no display of the problem.

    There are 4 wires,two are digital signals for controls,the other two are the 24v power,so you wire it to break the 24 volts.If I remember correctly it's best to interupt "D",double check to diagram to be sure.

    If you don't have two speed outdoor units,you can interupt the compressor contactor to the outdoor unit from the air handler.But if it's a two speed compressor the signals are digital,no way to interupt ,so break the 24V.

    Maybe the next generation will address this in a better way.

    Break D to UI. Kills it all. H/O will know there's an issue at that point.

    Oh, ya...I'm back...learning to overlook the stupid posts.
