NOTE: This product must be installed by a qualified installer.
Read through these instructions completely before commencing installation.
The infra-red lamps heat by direct radiation rather than by heating the air in the room, so the Tastic should be located directly over where drying off occurs.
Locate the Tastic in accordance with the requirements of the current Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules AS/NZS 3000 relating to damp situations.
In some installations this may mean that no part of the Tastic may be located directly above any part of a bath or shower recess or enclosure.
For unenclosed showers refer to Wiring Rules conditions.
Switches and other controls must not be located where they can be touched by a person in the bath or shower.
NOTE: Tastic products must only be installed horizontally in ceiling.
• Do not look directly into heat lamps when in use.
• Tastic products are not tanning lamps.
• ake sure the lamps have cooled and power is off to the Tastic before removing lamps for replacement.
M • Do not operate this appliance without the plastic lamp surround in position.
• his appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory T or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
• Young children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.
• his appliance must be mounted with the lowest point at least 2.1 metres from the floor.
T WARNING: Curtains or combustible material may ignite if in contact with the heater.
When Eco Tastic works in FAN OFF mode and the temperature inside the unit reaches 55°C, the thermal switch will switch on the fan automatically. When the temperature drops, the thermal switch will switch off the fan.
When for any reason the temperature inside the unit reaches 93°C, the thermal fuse will cut off power to the Eco Tastic. In such a case the Service Centre should be called to replace the thermal fuse.
How it Works
The IXL Tastic range has been designed to exacting standards to give you many years of trouble-free operation. To ensure you get the most from your Tastic there are a few simple points to keep in mind.
HEAT LAMPS The IXL Tastic Heat Lamps have no warm up period because the infra red lamps provide instantaneous heat, and are designed to heat you and not your bathroom - that’s the efficient way infra red heat works. You’ll save money and energy, with an average cost of around one cent a shower if used correctly, (based on average 5 minute drying time). Also, to get the full benefit of Tastic’s infra red warmth, stand directly under the heat lamps. IXL’s exclusive clear heat lamps have been designed specifically for this application, and concentrate their heat for maximum effectiveness.
Make sure you have the Tastic model that suits your bathroom ceiling height. This Tastic is manufactured to offer peak performance with bathroom ceiling heights up to 2.4 m for the Triumph 11341, 2.7 m for the Sensation 12343 and 3.3 m for the Silhouette 12341.
The Tastic half heat function is available on the 4 lamp models, and is another energy saver, allowing you to adjust the heat level to suit prevailing conditions or personal preference.
VENTILATIONTo ensure optimum performance of the exhaust fan, it is essential that there is adequate air flow into your bathroom to help the Tastic’s powerful and efficient exhaust fan to quickly remove steam while you shower. Your Tastic works by drawing steam-laden air from the room, and as with all exhaust fans it is essential that sufficient air inlet is provided. Ensure adequate inlets exist through windows, vents or under the door. Air flow path from inlet to fan should ideally pass over the steam source.
CENTRE LIGHT The centre light in all Tastic models is designed to provide general illumination in your bathroom.
For specific tasks like shaving or putting make-up on, you may need extra lighting to suit your individual needs.
Heat lamps can also be used to provide additional bright illumination for your bathroom. Lighter coloured walls and decor also help brighten your bathroom by reflecting more light.
See the wiring diagrams on the following pages for supply requirements and maximum loadings for each model. Tastics may be connected to a lighting or power circuit if loading permits. These models are for wired-in installation and wiring must be carried out by a registered electrician. *Switches and a wall plate are provided with the Tastic, attached to the unit. Remove the lamp surround for access.
Do not use this product with any solid state speed control or commercial dimming device.
IMPORTANT: To ensure correct and safe operation of the Eco Tastics it is not recommended to use a second exhaust fan with the Tastic. If a second exhaust fan is to be used it must be wired so that it is controlled by the same fan switch as the Tastic, see circuit diagrams.
NOTE: “S/W A FAN-LOW” connection is the permanent active supply to the unit. It must be provided so the unit can function as it was designed to do so.
* Number of switches depends on your Tastic model.
The Tastic may be installed between joists using the inbuilt clip fasteners. Alternatively, the unit can be installed against a joist using two screws through holes located in the flange (Fig. 4 on page 7), provided that the clearances for the two vertical sides are maintained as per Fig. 3 on page 7.
Depending on your model, the Tastic has a weight of 2 – 3.5 kg (see below). If adequate support is not available for the Tastic, it may be necessary to provide extra strengthening.
Eco Triumph – approx 2 kg Eco Sensation/Eco Silhouette – approx 3.5 kg IMPORTANT: Joists, beams and rafters shall not be cut or notched to install the appliance.

The Sensation and Silhouette lamp surround must be removed prior to replacing lamps. Ensure lamps are screwed well in after replacement to give good electrical contact.
