This drafter comes with an Interlock Control to meet all codes. The control features adjustable pre and post purge, LED status/diagnostic indicators, 10 second prover switch delay to avoid burner start up and wind induced short cycling. It interlocks with any 24-120 VAC burner control circuit and also includes “dry” contact actuation option. It's selectable voltage eliminates false activation by burner control circuits. After each burner cycle the control will continue to operate in post-purge mode to allow the venter to purge the heater and vent of residual flue gases. A factory post-purge time is set at 2 minutes and is adjustable up to 16 minutes.
To determine the size you need measure the length and height of your hearth opening. Multiply the length and height to determine the face area opening in square feet (divide square inches by 144 to convert to square feet). If the fireplace is open on the side or back, total all openings to arrive at the total face area.
