HEATNET 3.0 TECHNOLOGY
At its core, HeatNet 3.0 provides consistency and feedback through digital communication. Through continuous monitoring of several system characteristics, such as boiler temperatures, limit circuit inputs and overall system demands, HeatNet 3.0 modulates boiler-firing rates to maximize turndown ratios and maintain peak efficiency – regardless of the load.
As an intelligent and equally versatile feature, HeatNet 3.0 not only maintains efficiency in select, stand-alone Fusion and Futera models, but can also operate as part of a multi-boiler Master/Member network of up to 16 boilers, as compared to typical systems with smaller boiler configurations. Also capable of functioning as a boiler management system, HeatNet 3.0 can incorporate a mixture of condensing boilers and non-condensing boilers, or can be utilized in base-load applications with existing boiler units – all of which eliminate the need for costly additional third party, wall-mounted boiler control platforms.
In essence, HeatNet 3.0 “learns” the optimal firing rates of a specific application to determine the system’s load for optimal energy efficiency. Variable boiler settings for Mod/Max firing rates allow technicians to adjust the maximum firing rates, enabling all boilers to run at extremely efficient levels until all units in the sequence have fired. By keeping the firing rate as low as possible, HeatNet 3.0 is able to take advantage of increased efficiencies at lower inputs.
Designed with technicians in mind, HeatNet features an intuitive interface with plug-and-play connections, helping to speed up installation, set-up and diagnostic processes. With all electronics conveniently located in a self-contained control enclosure, all internal components and terminal blocks are easily accessible when maintenance is required. HeatNet boiler control software also allows for seamless flash drive or laptop-driven updateable firmware, which adds continuous value and boiler system control without physical control platform updates that can make some equipment obsolete.
