v2.0 & v2.1 ARPrv Control: If you bought your control after October 2014 & before July of 2018 you will have a v2.x control. The v2.x series of controls eliminated the external mechanical relay, thus each respective control can be identified by the wiring combined along with the serial number. The v2.0 is a non-fan controller and has the following wires: Red, Green, Yellow, and green/white twisted pair for boiler sensor. The v2.1 is a fan controller which has the same wires as the v2.0 with the addition of wires: Blue and black/white fan sensor.
