Electronic Control Modules from Capable Controls

Capable Controls offers both custom and off-the-shelf electronic control solutions. Capable Controls was started with a series of range top igniters that we sold for many years to GE & Whirlpool Appliance groups. We then decided to venture into more complex ignition controls devices. 

These devices offer thousands of timing combinations from Pre-Purge, Inter-Purge, Post -Purge, and Trial Times. Our first control module, the 2X Series, has direct spark or intermittent pilot and is still used in many of our customer’s equipment.

After the great success of the 2X, our customers wanted a Hot Surface Ignition module, so we developed our Series 8X control module. This smart, hot surface device was designed for a variety of OEM applications. It also features a universal control for replacement of a wide range of hot surface controls that are present in the field.

Some of the unique features of this smart control are:

  • Automatic frequency voltage sensing for 120V/240V igniters.
  • Multi-color LED diagnostics which indicates operation status and error codes
  • Dual relays for both hot surface and valve outputs.
  • Gas valve feedback circuit continuously monitors state of wiring.
  • Universal version with DIP switch for field selectable timings.
  • Gas Ignition Control Manufacturing
