Zonex board getting 27vac from transformer i am not seeing 24 v from w to c on ifc of ruud. Im thinking of wiring thermostat directly to ruud bypassing the zonex
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

The zone gets 2 different power sources...24v for panel and thermostats and a separate 24v from furnace for operation.

At the furnace if you jump R terminal to W does unit react?
