Bosch Therm 660EF/660EFO Remote Controller

The Bosch Therm 660EF/660EFO Wired Remote Controller, part number BRC01US is specifically designed for the Bosch Therm 660EF/660EFO units.  The wired remote gets wired to the Bosch 660EF/660EFO unit using 18 ga wire and can be installed up to 300' maximum away from the heater.

The wired remote should be installed in a location that is accessed easy from the main point of hot water use such as on the bathroom wall.  The default setting for the 660EF/660EFO is 120° F.  For most residential applications, the recommended setting is 120° F. 125° water is scalding and is very dangerous.

The Bosch Therm 660EF/660EFO gas tankless water heaters come with wired, marked connectors in the unit by the main control board.  The wired connectors are marked, 120°, 130°, 140° and 160°.  You must have the remote controller to achieve the 160° temperature. 

The remote control comes with many special options.  The remote control will give error codes on the display in the event of a problem (refer to the service manual or contact Bosch Technical Support for error codes and troubleshooting).  The upper limit of the hot water supply temperature can be changed to 100°F, 105°F, 110°F, 115°F, 120°F, 125°F, 130°F, 135°F, 140°F and up to 160 with the remote control.  There is also a unique flow meter alarm setting on the remote control.

The flow meter alarm setting can be used to set a desired amount of gallons of water maximum that is normally used.  As an example:  say your bath tub holds 50 gallons of hot water.  You can press and hold the flow meter alarm until it starts flashing and then set the remote to a maximum of 42 gallons of water.  So when you go and fill the bathtub with hot water and once the remote senses it has flowed 42 gallons of water an alarm will sound and then you would have to physically go and shut the water off at the source.  The alarm will stop after 10 seconds.

Bosch 345/450 ESR Tankless Recirculating Heaters

The gas tankless recirculating heaters, Bosch 345 ESR and the Bosch 450 ESR are temperature modulated and have electronic ignition.  The ESR stands for Electronic ignition, Sealed combustion and Recirculating.  These recirculating heaters are designed and approved for heating and recirculating potable water in conjunction with an indirect storage tank.

The 345/450 ESR are not approved or designed for closed loop heating applications.  The ESR units are not a tankless heater as they have no flow switch to respond to flow.  Instead it’s a recirculating water heater designed for tank loading applications.  When an AquaStat (not included) hooked up to a tank tells the ESR that water needs to be brought back up to temperature, the ESR will tell a circulator (not included) to turn on to create flow through the heater to reheat the water in the tank.   Please refer to the installation and applications manual. 

The Bosch 345 ESR recirculating heater is a 95K BTU unit and can deliver 3.5 GPM at a 45 degree rise.  Efficiency is 82%

The Bosch 450 ESR recirculating heater is a 120K BTU unit and can deliver 4.5 GPM at a 45 degree rise.  Efficiency is 81%

The temperature control range for both heaters can be set anywhere from 115°F (45°C) - 190°F (90°C)

The 345/450 ESR comes with a standard ¾” pressure relief valve. 

The 345/450 ESR has a special built-in freeze prevention cycle and is controlled by a sensor.  Freeze protection is always assured by the operation of the appliance.  If the primary NTC (temperature) sensor detects temperatures 9°F below the selected temperature, the appliance starts on minimum power until the sensor reads selected temperature.  In the case of minimum set point temperature then it will start at 41°F.  The use of non-potable additives like glycol is not approved.

The Bosch 345 ESR and the Bosch 450ESR must be installed indoors according to the provided installation manual.  The 345/450 ESR is NOT approved for outdoor installations. 

The Bosch 345/450 ESR recirculating heaters must be vented in accordance with the installation manual and require Category III 3” stainless steel sealed venting for the exhaust.  These heaters are direct vent units and must be vented directly to the outside in accordance with the installation manual.  These heaters cannot be combination vented with any other appliance.  The intake should be taken from the outside and 3”PVC or other material can be used only for the intake air.

The Bosch 345/450 ESR recirculating heaters are gas specific so they cannot be converted from one gas type to another.
