Nope. That heater can NOT be wired for 240 Volt operation. It is rated for 208 Volts only. Dayton makes other units rated for dual voltage operation, such as their model 2yu69

Installing it with a 240 volt supply will probably result in the elements burning out due to excessive voltage. :furious:

See chart of the different models here.

The heaters I have seen that have a terminal connection for the stat will use a low voltage stat(usually 12 or 24V). Is there a website so we can get more information on your heater
