    In an attempt to control a number of blankets serving as radiant floor
    heaters I like to know how to use a single conroller. Also would like
    to understand how these modern controllers designed to function.

    All help is greatly appreciated.

    ...a number of blankets serving as radiant floor heaters

    If they're anything like my old waterbed heater,
    there's a triac phase controller with a thermister for sensing.

    The ones I've seen apart have been a switch to two coils with one being one
    wire, two being the second wire and three being both wires in parallel.

    I'm hooking up water heated floor in my place over the next two months as I
    have the wood stove with hot water tank and plenty of wood. Only need to
    pump it as required.

    Hope this helps,
