Help with Drayton Wiser installation.

Hi Folks,

I need some help with replacing an old Danfoss TP5 wired thermostat with the "Drayton Wiser multi-zone kit 1".

Current setup:
Danfoss TP5 wired thermostat with two wires connected to it. Please see photos.

Boiler: Worcester condensing Boiler: Greenstar 24i JUNIOR combi MK 4

I spoke with Wiser tech support and they suggested that the back plate supplied with Wiser needs to be installed by removing the old thermostat. But they aren't able to give wiring advise over the phone.

The old thermostat has two cables connected to it:
A red cable which goes into "N/O"
A black cable which goes into "COM"

The new Wiser heat hub has got Following slots:
N, L, 1, 2, 3, 4. It also has got OT1 and OT2

Please see pictures attached.

I've also attached the user manuals for the old Danfoss and the Wiser multi zone kit 1

I would be very thankful if someone can advise how to swap from Danfoss to Wiser.
I'm unclear about the wiring. Please can someone help?

Many thanks,
Xen P

Hi Xen P,

This might have been better asked in plumbing and heating forum or the electrical forum. Having read the first couple of pages of both thermostats, your Danfoss is battery powered and your wires are just switching wires. Your Drayton Wiser is 230vac powered with switching wires needed. So you need a power source for the Drayton (could be piggybacked from boiler or even fused spur) and the switched wires. Although opening up that boiler require an safety checks afterwards by a competent engineer.

The existing Danfoss terminals are...


and the Wiser terminals are...


So the wires in...

The Danfoss terminal COM (1) go to the Wiser One Channel Version terminal COM (1)

The Danfoss terminal ON (3) go to the Wiser One Channel Version terminal ON (3)

Then as @The Novice says you now also need to provide a 230V supply to (N) and (L) to provide the Wiser with power. This supply should come from the same 3A fused connection unit (FCU) as the boiler.


You can access this without opening up the boiler casing. After isolating the power to the FCU connect the new supply to the Wiser to the N and L terminals marked 'LOAD' along with the wires that are already there.

The Wiser doesn't need an earth connection, but a parking terminal for the earth wire is provided in the lower left of the backplate to keep it safely out of the way.

If you wire it up as I describe above do not make the link shown as a dashed line between Wiser terminals (L) and (1)

Also, make sure you're in the 230v terminals in the boiler & not volt free

It doesn't matter, if Xen P wires it as I suggested. The wiser terminals 1 & 3 are voltage free, exactly the same as the existing thermostat terminals 1 & 3 are voltage free, so it doesn't actually matter if the boiler is wired for 24v or 230V. The important thing is; that just in case it is 24v...

That way the 24v and 230V are kept separate.;)
