Phantom Wire Kit
- Creates a Phantom 24VAC Common Wire
- Use When There are One Too Few Conductors in Existing Thermostat Cable
- Color-Coded Cabling for 5-wire HVAC connection at Equipment
The NT-PWIRE-2 Phantom Wire device allows the installer to connect any NetX thermostat when a common wire is not available in the existing thermostat cable. This handy device creates a phantom wire. In many existing installations, older thermostat cables don't have a common (24VAC common) wire because they were not needed for the mechanical thermostats originally installed.
Years ago, it was typical for the cable to only have four (4) conductors. The NT-PWIRE-2 creates the common wire so the HVAC unit can be used along with any NetX thermostat or just about any other thermostat requiring a 24VAC common.
