After vigorous design and agency testing the 8X series is ready for production and is supplied with a flame status and diagnostic LED indicator for accurate troubleshooting. Alternate relay switching is employed to extend power relay life as much as 50%. It utilizes ODL "Optical Data Link" programming which can download custom OEM parameters to finished product within seconds. This allows us to stock base units and install the various programs immediately as needed.
Other options include hot surface proven current measurement for systems with high BTU requirements. The universal model includes a multi-position DIP switch allowing a broad range of field selectable timing options. These timing selections are permanently transferred into memory after 10 normal cycles.
