How it Works

System X provides comfort heat in commercial premises and is particularly suited to shops.

A system will include a controller and up to 12 individual heaters.  The heaters can be selected from a variety of mounting styles and kW outputs which can be in any combination and in any sequence.  The control daisy chain is connected by means of Cat5 cables ensuring the quickest possible installation time.  Power is introduced to each heater individually with the controller taking its power from the first heater in the chain.

System X Heater Installation

Technical Specification

All System X heaters have built-in relays allowing them to be controlled by a CX1, CX2 or CX3 controller.  One controller can control up to 12 heaters of any type and in any sequence.

Connection between controller and the first heater and between heaters is by means of Cat5 cables. The heaters are fitted with a pair of Cat5 sockets either of which can be ‘in’ or ‘out’.

Maximum recommended cable lengths between controller and first heater and between individual heaters is 50m.

Power is introduced to each heater individually with the controller taking its power from the first heater in the group

Heater Selection

If you would like the experts at BN Thermic to select a suitable heating for your application, please click below to access our enquiry form.  Simply provide as much information as you have available and we will respond with a detailed proposal.

Enquiry Form

In simple terms the output of the System X installation must be greater than the heat losses from the building during periods of cold weather.  A small amount of heat is lost through the walls, ceilings and floors with more significant losses through windows and doors.

To estimate the heat loss from your building you may like to use our heat calculation tool

Heat Calculator

The estimated heat loss figure is the absolute minimum kW output that you should consider installing.  We would suggest adding approximately 50% to this figure to allow for an acceptable warm up time in cold conditions as well as making allowances for exceptional weather conditions and possible errors in the original data used in the estimate.

Having established the minimum kW output, select the minimum number of heaters needed to meet this requirement.  The choice of mounting style will be dictated by the requirements of individual rooms.  Please remember that one system can comprise any style of heaters in any combination or sequence.
