ETC6008 – Similar to ETC6000 but has a blending function when firing mixed fuel profiles to bias the use of one fuel rather that the other depending upon fuel availability. The blending function is controlled by a signal from external systems. Oxygen trim is a mandatory function for this controller.
- Designed for use with dual fuel, gas and liquid, modulating burners.
- All burner start up sequence functions and timings fully integrated.
- Ignition control.
- IR, UV, photocell and ionisation flame scanners supported.
- Control of two variable speed drives for combustion air and fuel pump control.
- Up to 10 servo motors can be assigned allowing complex applications to be addressed.
- Fuel safety valve control and proving.
- Up to 4 fuel/air ratio profiles can be programmed.
- Choice of communications protocols including RS-485, Profibus and Modbus.
- Versatile programming options allowing most applications to be addressed.
- Oxygen trim option using dedicated ETC oxygen probes and interfaces, to ensure safe combustion.
Unusual and unique applications can be addressed such as.
- Twin-firing combination.
- Complex boiler sequencing.
- Water pump/valve control.
- ‘Service due’ indications etc.
The ETC6008 Integrated Combustion Controller offers numerous benefits.
- Enables users to use combustible waste products as fuel, reducing fuel and disposal costs.
- Improved combustion and improved turndown saves up to 5% on fuel costs and significantly reduces harmful CO2 and other flue gas emissions.
- Servo motors with a positioning accuracy of ±0.1° replace conventional characterising cams and linkages and eliminates backlash and hysteresis.
- Using a second setpoint during periods of low demand can save up to 10% in fuel usage.
- Functional integration of burner control, gas leak detection, gas valve proving, flame supervision, PID modulation and fuel air ratio control in a single unit simplifies wiring and interconnections and improves reliability.
- Passcode protection to prevent untrained/unauthorised changes to combustion set-up.
- ComView Burner Management Software allows advanced interfacing functions and allows collection/trend logging of data.
- Small ‘footprint’ allows the ETC6008 to be mounted directly within the burner enclosure.
