The Fireye EP160, EP161 (extended MTFI), EP163 (programmable), EP170 and EP174 (early spark termination), EP165, EP166 (pilot stabilization) or EP177 (early spark termination and programmable operating parameters) programmer modules are used with the FLAME-MONITOR Burner Management Control System (P/N’s E100 and E110). Several operational characteristics of the programmer are determined by six (6) dipswitches located on the side of the programmer. These characteristics include forced blower motor start delay (dipswitch 1), extended purge timing (dipswitches 3, 4, 5) and the option requiring the 3-P running interlock circuit to be proven open at the start of the operating cycle (dipswitch 6). Dipswitch 2 is inactive. Models EP163 and EP177 characteristics are programmed via the ED510 Display Module, rather than by dipswitch
The EP160, EP161, EP163, EP165, EP166, EP170, EP174 and EP177 programmers provide start-up programming, safe-start check, and flame monitoring supervision. They insure open damper (high purge) prepurge, proof of low fire position, and fuel valve end switch safety checks. A running interlock circuit on the FLAME-MONITOR system constantly monitors the limit switches, air flow switches, and fuel pressure switches through the programmer. The programmer control is designed to initiate a safety lockout if any of these circuits are open at the improper point in the control cycle.
The programmer module will de-energize all fuel valve circuits within four (4) seconds (max.) following a flame failure [two (2) seconds for the EP165 and EP166], or at the end of the pilot trial for ignition period if no flame is detected. An alarm circuit will be energized following a safety lockout
The programmer module includes an RJ45 style connector to interface with an integral or remote alpha-numeric display (P/N ED510). It is also backward compatible with the ED500 display. It includes two (2) additional RJ style connectors to connect to an E500 communication interface in a multi-drop configuration or allow communication via a Modbus protocol. The programmer will also communicate with the E500 via the ED550 cables to provide backward compatibility.
The programmer is the heart of the FLAME-MONITOR System and features a plug-in design for ease of installation. It is micro-processor based and stores the burner cycles, burner hours, system hours, and lockout history (with burner cycle and burner hour time stamp) which are accessible via the ED510 alpha-numeric display, E500 Communication Interface, InTouch Wireless Monitoring System or Modbus communications. If replaced, the new programmer card will begin accumulating a new history.
