The BCU 4 Series offers industrial designers, engineers, operators and service technicians a multi-functional, modular control solution. It is designed for directly ignited or pilot/main burners of unlimited capacity in intermittent or continuous operation, and for modulated or step-controlled gas burners. The BCU 4 Series was developed for furnace builder original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), burner manufacturers and end users in sectors such as metals, ceramics, food and automotive.
“The next-generation BCU 4 Series’ intelligent design helps industrial designers and engineers better maximize limited space,” said Tim Lee, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Thermal Solutions. “The new features provide broader functionality that delivers greater value to our customers.”
The three models in the Series provide different functions:
- The BCU 460 model controls, ignites and monitors modulating or stage-controlled gas burners for intermittent or continuous operation, making it ideal for frequent cycling operations
- The BCU 465 incorporates airflow monitoring and pre- and post-ventilation for use with recuperative burners
- The BCU 480 can monitor pilot and main burners independently.
The BCU 4 Series comes equipped with an ignition transformer, burner control and an embedded human machine interface (HMI) – all arranged within compact housing. The four-digit display shows vital information such as program status, unit parameters and flame signals. All models possess a manual mode to adjust the burner and its diagnostics.
The control solution fulfills the requirements of the most important industry standards and has Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-ready PROFIBUS, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™ network connections. These connections enable faster connectivity.
