    Floor heat sensor.

    Im being told that its a code violation for the floor sensor to occupy the same box as the 120VOLT power for the thermostat?

    Connections are both made on the back of the device.

    How can you separate the two?

    thanks

    What you're being told is not correct. The T-stat unit was designed and UL listed to be connected to a 1-gang opening. I would say that it should not be installed inside a conduit with the floor warming cables if that is what they meant. I generally use a deep 4" square plastic nail on box with a 1-gang mud ring. I usually install the sensor wiring inside a piece of 1/2" EMT between the edge of the floor and the JB. I do that in the event the sensor goes bad it can easily be pulled up and a new one dropped down. Ask whomever told you that how they would do the install.
