Hot Surface Gas Ignition Control (proved operation option)

New Product Information 8X HSI series

The 8X Series is a microprocessor based INTELLIGENT hot surface ignition control, designed for OEM and replacement applications. The wiring connections are industry standard which allows for simplified installation and replacement.

The internal circuitry monitors systems gas valve, wiring and H.S.I. element shutting down the system in the event of a failed or short circuit condition.

The control offers a flame status and diagnostic LED indicator for accurate and simplified troubleshooting.

Alternating relay switching is employed to extend power relay life as much as 50%.

ODL "Optical Data Link" programming is designed into this for immediate downloading of programs.
