New Hydrotherm S1000B Programmable Controller Provides 24/7 Boiler Room Monitoring and Control



WESTFIELD, Mass., Sept. 29, 2004 - HydroTherm, a leading manufacturer of high efficiency commercial boilers, now offers boiler room control from remote locations with its new S1000B Programmable Controller.

The S1000B Programmable Controller is designed to enable users to control heating boilers, domestic hot water boilers, motorized valves, combustion air dampers, draft inducers and more from remote locations. In addition, the system offers two outputs programmed to control two pumps with lead lag and automatic failure rotation.

"We are very excited about the new S1000B Programmable Controller," said Floyd Lewis, product manager for HydroTherm. "Remote monitoring and control has become an important aspect of many facility managers, installing contractors and building owners for installations of HVAC systems during the past few years. The S1000B Controller is an ideal solution for monitoring and adjusting commercial hydronic heating systems."

The new S1000B Programmable Controller features 16 inputs permitting the addition of temperature sensors and prove switches for a wide range of safety functions, data collection and system monitoring. In addition, the system offers a data logging feature to record system-wide information such as water temperature, number of cycles, sequences and run times of the boiler modules and circulator pumps. The system can also be programmed to monitor events such as alarms. See complete list of features below.

The system enables users to monitor the operation from remote locations using the built-in modem and software. Users can view and monitor the system, download data logs and change system settings from remote locations through password-protected access on the web. The basic package includes:
o The S1000B controller with modem and RS232 communications connections
o The Supply Water Temperature Sensor with hardware
o The Outside Air Temperature Sensor with hardware
o A 24 VAC Transformer
o PC Communications Software
o Operation manuals

Optional equipment includes a domestic water sensor and hardware to monitor and control DHW modules, a general purpose relay for switching line voltage or high amp load with output relays, and a 24 VAC 2-wire transformer to power up to three general purpose relays.

The S1000B Programmable Controller is a lockable 16 gauge, corrosion-resistant, stainless steel enclosure measuring 12.25-inches wide X 18.25-inches high X 2.75-inches deep, and features a florescent display for easy viewing in dark boiler rooms. The system requires 115V/60Hz and has removable and replaceable relays with indicator lights for maximum visibility.

HydroTherm, a division of Mestek, is celebrating its 50th year of manufacturing cast-iron commercial and residential boilers and heating systems.
