This heater control panel is designed to mount on an equipment trailer and be powered by the equipment trailer’s 12V battery power system. It’s primary function is to allow an operator to adjust a temperature setpoint and control a diesel fired burner to maintain the temperature setpoint in the trailer’s process chamber.
In addition to its primary function, secondary functions allow an operator to 1) enable or disable the burner with a switch, 2) turn on or off two 12V user power outs with a switch, 3) see the temperature setpoint and process chamber temperature, 4) see the trailer battery voltage, heater run time hours, and any alarms.
It’s provided in the smallest possible enclosure with 1) an integral sun shield to prevent over heating, 2) all mounting and conduit holes to simplify mounting and conduit installation, 3) a combination of 12VDC automotive power components and 24VDC industrial control components to optimize reliability and cost.
The major components are; keyed 12VDC Power Disconnect, Emergency Stop, 12VDC to 24VDC power converter, PLC with two Thermocouple Inputs (combustion chamber / process chamber) and one Analog Input (battery voltage/ low voltage shutdown), an HMI (setpoint control / status), and a 75A 12VDC Power Relay (control the burner).
