The MC200 is a digital, high specification controller for individual heaters that provides the flexibility of variable time and temperature control as well as optimised start/stop prediction. Adjustable frost protection, remote burner reset and summer fan-only operation are also included. All cabinet heaters are factory fitted with the MC200 control as standard.
The MC200 has the ability to set a variety of time and temperature programs, whilst still enabling the user to adjust the temperature within controlled limits if required. Adjustable frost protection protects against low temperatures. The MC200 also allows for remote burner fault reset, and summer fan only operation.
Heaters are supplied ready for automatic operation and are complete with safety and comfort controls. The Powrmatic CPx, VPC, TE are factory fitted with the MC200.
One of the key energy-saving features of the MC200 is it’s ability to set a variety of time and temperature programs, including optimum start configuration with weather compensation. By monitoring the previous performance of the heater and taking account of ambient temperatures, the MC200V3 can determine the optimum time to turn the heating on. ‘Optimum stop’ can be configured to save energy at the end of the heating period.
The MC200 can provide direct control of both high/low and modulating burners – the latter via an internally generated 0-10V signal.
The user keypad and back-lit display allows easy selection of heating and fan-only modes, override functions and full reset. The MC200 will also provide a read-out of the burner’s operating hours to ensure servicing at appropriate intervals. When programmed with the correct data, it can also provide an indication of the running costs of the appliance.
The MC200 features password-controlled access, This can be locked in various combinations to allow different levels of password-controlled access for different users. There are two levels of password-controlled access, the second level being for use by commissioning and servicing engineers. This provides access to parameters normally used only in the initial setting of the controller, accessing the fault log and resetting the system
Ease Of Use
The MC200 features an easy-to-use interface for selection of heating and fan-only modes, override functions and full reset. These can be locked in various combinations to allow different levels of password-controlled access for different users.
When used with a remote sensor the MC200 can be sited wherever is convenient, such as in a manager’s office. If used with its internal temperature sensor, the unit should be located in a spot that is generally representative of the area to be heated. In such cases it should be sited 1.7m above floor level away from draughts and direct sources such as sunlight or heat emitters. It should also be in an easily accessible position for programming and operation.
