The burner control units BCU 480 control, ignite and monitor gas burners for intermittent or continuous operation. As a result of their fully electronic design, they react quickly to various process requirements and are therefore suitable for frequent cycling operation.
They can be used for industrial burners of unlimited capacity which are ignited by pilot burners. Pilot and main burners may be modulating or stage-controlled. The BCU 480 monitors pilot and main burners independently. The pilot burner can burn permanently or be switched off. The BCU is installed near the burner to be monitored.
On industrial furnaces, the BCU reduces the load on the central furnace control by taking over tasks that only relate to the burner, for example it ensures that the burner always ignites in a safe condition when it is restarted.
Applications: Multi-burner systems where space and function are top priorities.
