Boilers, as any board member knows, are some of the most expensive things a building can run. And seeing as how having heat and hot water is nonnegotiable, it's not a place where you can cut corners. But that doesn't mean you can't save money. How? Through automatic, computer-controlled monitoring, so that your boiler is only on and at full steam, so to speak, when necessary.
The Mini-MOD-CNC control automatically matches the operations of condensing boilers (which have modulating burners) and non-condensing boilers (which have staging or on/off burners) to make the combined system more efficient. It operates high-mass boilers during peak loads and other types at part load to increase efficiency. You can sequence up to four boilers with the basic model, and up to 16 boilers with two mini-extensions that each handle six.
Features include a built-in day/night scheduler, remote enable/disable capability, domestic hot-water capability with optional priority, setback and boost functionality, and a locking NEMA-1 electrical enclosure. As Arthur C. Clarke might have said over a breakfast of Lucky Charms, "Why, it's scientifically delicious!"
