Selecting HN infrared halogen heaters
HN infrared halogen heaters provide instant direct heat to a target area. The target area can be an entire building or a smaller area within an otherwise unheated building.
As a guide to selection please follow the following example.
Use infrared halogen heaters to heat a well- insulated community hall 15m long by 6m wide with a mounting height of 3m above floor level.
Step One: Determine the total kW required
This is achieved by multiplying the square meters of floor area by the relevant Watts per square meter figure (see Table 1)
Floor area = 15m x 6m = 90 square meters
Select a figure of 200W per square meter from Table 1 and multiply by the floor area
90 square meters x 200W per square meters = 18,000W (18kW) minimum kW output required
Step Two: Select heater outputs and mounting heights
Use Table 2 for heater selection. To ensure a good coverage we suggest ‘footprints’ are allowed to overlap by 10 to 15%.
Taking the preferred mounting height into consideration, select the model that provides the required kW output using the minimum number of heaters. Spacing the heaters evenly, plot the ‘footprints’ onto a sketch of the hall to ensure good coverage.
|Wall Mounted||Area |
|Overhead Mounted (m)||Area |
In this instance we would select 6 x 3kW HN-3000 infrared heaters which can be mounted at 3m above floor level to achieve the following coverage:

The controllers should be wall-mounted in a convenient location and hard wired to the heater.
For multi-heater control see MC1 control box.
The VR-2 dimmer can control the density of the output from infrared halogen heaters up to 3kW. A simple panel front knob provides 30% to 100% adjustment. It also proves a convenient means of isolating the heater with a definite ‘click’ to off. The VR-2 is IP55 rated.
TS-6 Push Button Timer (pre-programmed time delay)
The TS-6 is a compact surface-mount, weatherproof device which will energise a heater or heaters for a pre-programmed period between 2 minutes and 2 hours. Once this period has elapsed the heating will automatically be switched off until the button is pushed again.
The TS-6 can switch loads up to 3kW directly and is touch activated for easy operation.
TS-5 High Capacity Soft Start Timer
The TS-5 timer is designed for direct switching of halogen heaters with a combined load of up to 6kW. The time delay period can be adjusted from 5 minutes to 70 minutes and once this time period has elapsed the heating will be switched off automatically. The built-in triac provides ‘soft start’ increasing lamp life by up to 10% and reducing stress on the mains supply. The TS-5 includes terminals allowing the device to be connected to a remote programmable timer and/or a thermostat.
WH-402 Movement Sensor
The WH-402 is a compact, surface mount, weatherproof device which can detect movement up to 12m from its mounting position in a 180° arc. Both distance and angle of detection can be reduced. Once movement has been detected the heating will be switched on. If no further movement is detected within a pre-programmed period (between 5 seconds and 18 minutes)the heating will be automatically switched off.
The WH-402 can switch loads up to 3kW directly and larger loads via a suitable contactor.
