With the release of the SYX663 and SYX664 Controllers we can offer a replacement for the older DC Controllers which are no-longer in manufacture. These are available to order now.

The SYX663 uses the same sensors as the DC1400 (Satchwell T Type), the SYX664 uses the same sensors as the DC1100 (30k).

If replacing an old DC1100 please make sure the sensors are working as these are becoming harder to source, it may be worth upgrading to another sensor type to avoid sensor issues down the line but we understand this may not always be possible. To check they are working measure their resistance at the controller end of the cables with nothing else connected on them. Match this against the resistance/temp charts for these sensors.

We offer a range of different mounting brackets to suit your mounting requirements. If your original DC1100 or DC1400 controller application used the HWS channel you will also need the SYX66x-1RM relay module to complete the installation.

If you read the configuration manual on our website you should be able to configure the controller, and more after, without any issues.

You can set the controller up using the controller interface or you can use the Web-Browser inside the controller as you like.

Further to the basic DC1100 and DC1400 applications the SYX66x range of controllers offer more features that can be used if required. You can replace other products as well such as Siemens, Trend or Honeywell where applications are simple but the engineering, support and maintenance is becoming too expensive.

The SYX76x version of controllers provide two individual zones and even more options again. The SYX76x would allow two DC controllers to be replaced that shared the central plant, outside sensor etc.

Both the SYX66x and SYX76x are configured in the same easy fashion so master one and you master them both.

We can also offer a special version of the controllers per-configured to use Wireless Room Sensors for applications where sensors are not in good locations or where asbestos or other factors limit the works. This may require additional repeaters or power supplies but usually there is a way to progress and deliver a solution. Talk to us and we will help all we can..

Our aim is to make the use and installation of the SYX Controllers as simple as possible for installers with Electrical qualifications but not always with a controls background. We have added new mounting bracket options:

Please then see the attached information sheet showing like for like connections when exchanging a DC1400 controller with a SYX663 or when replacing a DC1100 with a SYX664 Controller. Please use the following links to view the controllers and other documentation on our web site:

For DC1400 replacements use this link: http://www.syxthsense.com/controllers/syx663/compact-optimiser/compensator,-satchwell -sensors/

For DC1100 replacements use this link: http://www.syxthsense.com/controllers/syx664/compact-optimiser/compensator,-dc1100-se nsors/

Please note: If your DC1100 or DC1400 uses its Hot Water Output you will need to purchase the SYX-HWS Relay Option with your new controller.

If you would like to replace all the sensors with new then it is easier to replace them with NTC10 sensors as they are more cost effective, for this you will need the SYX661 controller. Use this link: http://www.syxthsense.com/controllers/syx661/compact-optimiser/compensator,-ntc10-sen sors/
