5X Series Continuous Gas Ignition Control Modules

Direct spark and Intermittent pilot ignition systems are used in most gas applications, as well as furnaces or any other gas applications that calls for heat. In these continuous gas ignition control systems, a spark lights the gas burner while electric controls monitor the system.

Capable Controls manufactures the Series 5 ignition modules, providing continuous ignition sequence flame monitoring and safety shut off with a dual-color LED for continuous status of control operation and fault conditions.

The Series 5 microprocessor-based ignition modules are designed and stringently tested for use in all types of cooking and heating applications.

Applications for Gas Ignition Controls

The 5X series control monitors the system via the thermostat for ovens, furnace, and any other equipment that utilizes gas heat. These heating applications include:

  • Gas furnaces
  • Residential and commercial boilers
  • Water/space heaters
  • Commercial cooking appliances
  • Spa and pool heaters
  • Agricultural equipment
