The BCU (burner control unit) 480 controls, ignites, and monitors gas burners for intermittent or continuous operation. Its fully electronic design reacts quickly to various process requirements and is therefore suitable for frequent cycling operation.

It can be used for industrial burners of unlimited capacity that are ignited by pilot burners. Pilot and main burners can be modulating or stage-controlled. The BCU 480 monitors pilot and main burners independently. The pilot burner can burn continuously or it can be switched off. The BCU is installed close to the burner to be monitored.

On industrial furnaces, the BCU reduces the load on the central furnace control by taking over tasks that only relate to the burner, for example it ensures that the burner always ignites in a safe condition when it is restarted.

The air valve control assists the furnace control for cooling, purging, and capacity control tasks.

The program status, the unit parameters, and the level of the flame signal can be read directly from the unit. The burner can be controlled manually for commissioning and diagnostic purposes.

If the local requirements on the burner control unit change, the BCSoft software can be adjusted to the unit parameters of the application using the optical interface.

Users can see input and output signals and the error history.
