Control multiple longwave radiant heaters from a single point with the new PC control box
The Control Boxes
BN Thermic’s new PC control boxes provide a brand new approach to longwave radiant heater control. The control boxes allow multiple longwave heaters to be switched via a single controller which provides 7-day thermostatic control (PC-C1). All from one box!
The PC control box is modelled on BN Thermic’s MC-1 shortwave halogen heater control box which burst onto the market in 2015 and was specified in numerous large projects in the UK. (Creating the first heated concourse in a UK stadium was one its biggest success stories – Click for case study)
Longwave Radiant Heaters
Longwave radiant heaters provide discreet comfort heat with no noise, light or draught output making them ideal for numerous applications. BN Thermic supply two models of heater which are both compatible with the new PC control box.
- Radiant Cassettes (ESP) – A modern heater that can be wall mounted or suspended at high level. These are ideally suited to heating larger applications such as showrooms, industrial units, village halls, sports halls and squash courts. Wattages range from 900W up to 3.6KW.
- Radiant Ceiling Panels (RP) – A discreet heater that can be surface mounted or laid into a grid ceiling. These are ideally suited for applications with ceilings heights under 4m such as offices, classrooms, care homes, pharmacies and hospitals.
PC control boxes are manufactured in the UK to the highest standard
Key Advantages of PC Control Box
For an end user its very simple. By selecting the correct PC control box for their project, you can control several radiant heaters all from one simple wall controller. The box itself contains an electronic PCB that reduces sudden shock loads on the mains supply. It also consists of electronic switches/relays which are far quieter than using traditional contactors. The PC control boxes can also be connected to a BMS system (Building Management System).
For an installer, the PC control box simplifies large installations which saves time and money. A typical PC control box installation will require less cable, less MCB’s or RCB’s and less junction boxes. It is also quicker to install as each circuit is individually fused. The 7-day wall programmer (PC-C1) connects to the control box via Cat-5 cable and does not require mains power. (This means you’re not chasing mains cable through the wall!)
