Electronic time control

CentaurPlus single-channel, 7-day control suitable for combi boiler applications, an extra heating zone, or the pump on a solid fuel boiler. Highly popular and affordable, the latest Series 2 units now feature an upgraded back-lit display screen and incorporate an automatic GMT/ BST clock. All models feature an industry-standard six-pin backplate, which permits easy replacement/upgrade, with the C17 being suitable for use with combi boilers and the C27 being ideal for non-combi boiler installations, where a hot water cylinder is in use.
