The W8600F indicator panel has four LCD arrowheads that point to ON, BATTERY, SERVICE or FAULT. Size 4 x 2½ x 1¾". Color white. The SERVICE indication is based on elapsed run time preset with dip switches. There are 8 intervals ranging from a 10 to 180 day cycle. The run time is based on the time unit is operating and not calendar days. The FAULT indication occurs with inadequate voltage from a possible cell short or excessive arcing. Not included is 3 conductor thermostat wire to connect to the F50F or F300. Ideal for when the F300 is located where it is otherwise not seen or heard, such as an attic. Mount in the living area or near the unit if readily visible.
Compatibility depends on Series 1 or 2. All F300A or F300E are compatible. All F50F F58F newer than 1998 are W8600F compatible. F50F Series 1 was manufactured from 94 to 97. The Series One was W8600E compatible. F50F Series 2 was manufactured from 98 to 06. The Series two is W8600F comparable. The Series 1 power box is identified by the 4 connector terminal strip on the left side of the box. The connector would be used for the optional W8600E. The Series 2 power box has a knock-out for a terminal strip. The terminal strip would be included with the optional W8600F.
The W8600F was originally available in white and taupe (beige). The taupe W8600F1006 was discontinued in 2007. We no longer have the taupe, the white W8600F1014 is still in production and a stock item.
