Product Details

The SNE 5 is equipped with an electronic control unit and ensures convenient and efficient water heating. The water temperature can be adjusted precisely from 35°C-85°C on the user interface LCD. A power saving ECO function can be enabled at the press of a button. A hygiene circuit for pasteurisation is also integrated. Three adjustable and programmable weekly timers (home, office, individual). Display of the actual temperature, operating time and heating time.

The anti-drip function prevents expansion water dripping during heat-up of the cylinder, thereby saving water and reducing limescale build-up on the taps and sink. The energy saving thermostop function prevents unwanted heating of the mixer tap. Freely adjustable minimum and maximum temperatures (anti-scalding protection). Automatic frost protection. Display of the enabled ECO function and heat-up indicator. Internal plastic cylinder made from polypropylene with high grade EPS thermal insulation for the lowest possible energy losses.

PROFI-RAPID installation system ensures quick and straightforward installation for licenced plumbers. Simple wall mounting with universal mounting rail included as standard. Installation template included in the standard delivery. Protection rating IP 24 D (splashproof).

Robust copper tubular heater with low surface load for a long service life. Resettable high limit safety cut-out for safe commissioning. Electronic temperature limit for anti-scalding protection can be set to the exact degree required.

The SNE is a non-pressurised appliance for use with non-pressurised open vented taps only. Undersink installation.
