The ETC6075 is a state-of-the-art Burner Management touchscreen interface that perfectly complements the ETC6000 range of Integrated Burner and Fuel:Air Ratio Controllers.
ETC's wealth of experience, together with market research and customer feedback, has enabled the engineers at ETC to produce an innovative interface that will appeal to all users from installation and commissioning engineers through to the end-users.
The large 10.4" TFT display incorporates all the features of the standard membrane interfaces plus many more. Functionality is no longer restricted by the number of keys or display characters available on a conventional interface. The touchscreen has been developed in line with ETC's philosophy to develop new products that use similar operating conventions to legacy products. Both new and existing users will find the touchscreen intuitive in its use and operation. The home screen is a graphical representation of the boiler, burner and fuel delivery system. In addition, the current operating status, the values of any installed pressure or temperature sensors and any alarm conditions are also displayed.
All controlled elements, such as drive and valve positions, are dynamically represented and the current status of each is displayed. During burner start-up a dedicated pop-up panel appears to indicate the progress through the various stages of start-up from proving the closed positions of the drives through to modulation. On burner shutdown a similar panel is also displayed.
'Buttons' at the bottom of the touchscreen allow the users to initiate functions such as burner start/stop, fuel selection, control mode, alarm handling as well as entering the various operational modes.
The touchscreen display is a 'blank canvas' allowing ETC to work with its customers to design graphics and screen layouts to their exact specifications and requirements. ETC’s OEM customers can have products developed that reflect their unique design philosophies and personalities and incorporate their trademarks and logos. Restrictions previously associated with language character sets such as Russian and Chinese are no longer issues. The touchscreen bezel can also be supplied to suit customer requirements.
Other enhanced features include real-time data logging, Ethernet communications and the option to have a second remote display. Models can also be supplied with an MMC memory card slot enabling operating software to be updated and logged data to be saved locally.
By entering the password protected commissioning mode the touchscreen interface allows full burner commissioning to be carried out as well as allowing access to operating parameters that are used to configure the ETC6000 controllers to address a wide range of burner applications.
