Original item with identical looking circuit had no sensor to Inlet but this arrangement would not function. When I connected inlet sensor the control unit worked perfectly.
Original one had been damaged by a power failure after almost 10 years faultless operation. When I connected a 240 V supply from an inverter, the inverter began howling (this had worked well on previous occasions when power failed)
Upon opening the cover there was an obvious burnt spot at a chip near the input for 240 V mains. The 'Salmson' pump worked well from the inverter and restored mains so I switched pump on manually during the day.
System works well again but now needs a higher roof temperature before starting pump. Perhaps the original had been especially altered to not require inlet NTC.
