Stiebel Eltron Tempra & Tempra Plus Series Tankless Water Heaters

Models and Specifications

Stiebel Eltron Tempra tankless water heater The Stiebel Eltron Tempra and Tempra Plus Series electric tankless water heaters are the most sophisticated thermostatically-controlled on demand, instantaneous water heaters available on the market today.

Stiebel Eltron offers models ranging from 12 to 36 KW in power, to meet a wide range of point-of-use, whole house, as well as commercial applications. Each model features Stiebel Eltron's advanced microprocessor technology which constantly monitors the water flow rate and incoming water temperature and adjusts the power level to maintain a precise output temperature as selected by the user.

The Tempra Plus series models take temperature control to another level, offering the industry's only Advanced Flow Control technology. This technology automatically adjusts the flow of water when the unit's sensor's detect that the flow demand is exceeding the heater's capacity. This feature is particularly useful in cold climates and other applications where the electrical service size does not permit the installation of a larger model where it may be desirable to handle occassional high flow demands. It is also desirable where high output temperatures are required for temperature-critical applications (commercial dishwashers, etc.) where flow rates are not always predictable.

A simple adjustment dial on the front of the heater allows you to set the output water temperature to whatever temperature you desire between 86 and 140F (30 to 60C)[Note, maximum temperature setting on some models is 125F (52C)].

Max. Output Temperature The maximum output temperature is a function of incoming water temperature and water flow rate. For residential applications, all units are factory pre-set to permit a temperature setting from 86F (30C) to 140F (60C). The temperature setting can be easily adjusted using the adjustment dial on the front of the heater.

* Breaker size and wire gauge must meet all applicable local, state, provincial, and national electrical codes for your area - these are only guidelines that will apply to most installations. Some codes require use of electrical sub-panel for installation, especially when heater is not mounted within line-of-sight of the main electrical panel. Wiring should be sized to maintain a voltage drop of less than 3% under load. Please consult your electrician for more details.
