Designed to cope with the most challenging industrial situations, this touch screen control panel – available in 8” and 10” options – is brightly backlit and features plenty of contrast, allowing even the most complex data to be clearly displayed.

The menus, graphics and symbols of the touch screen have been carefully created to make sense at a glance - all available controls and regulating functions can be called up effortlessly, and actual and setpoint values shown or changed easily.

In addition, protective functions make operating errors impossible. This not only protects the unit from damage or unnecessary wear and tear, but ensures that the boiler’s fuel consumption is as efficient as possible. Most importantly, it means that safety risks are minimised.

This advanced technology also facilitates a proper analysis and optimisation of boiler operation, since process data is saved on the memory card and can be called up on the displays. Depending on the size of the memory card and the intervals programmed, daily or weekly figures can be accessed. What’s more to ensure that fresh data is never lost, when the memory card is full the oldest data is automatically deleted in order to make room for the new entries.

“No matter how advanced the burner or fuel management technology within a boiler, the ability of the end user to operate the unit on a day-to-day basis is absolutely critical, since it is going to have a huge impact on the unit’s efficiency, not to mention its longevity and fault-free running,” explains Derek Parish, Managing Director at CFB Boilers.

“Additionally, the ability to assess the boiler’s operational record ensures that service engineers can also be sure that the unit is functioning at peak performance.”
