  • Supplied to control restaurant air handling system
  • Separate controls for the kitchen and restaurant areas

Kitchen specifications:

  • 45kW electric heater – to be step controlled

  • 27kW electric heater – to be thyristor controlled
  • Single phase supply fan

Control panel specifications:

  • Airflow switches and an emergency stop push button station for the gas safety circuit
  • Single phase toilet extract fans, a dish wash area fan, enable signals to three air conditioning units and outputs to ESP and UV units
  • Heaters controlled by facia mounted digital thermostats
  • Heaters interlocked with the supply fan which would run on for two minutes to prevent the heaters overheating when turned off together
  • Duct temperature sensors for each heater (left connected to the customer terminals to prevent them from being mislaid on site)
  • Airflow proving switch for each heater control circuit. Each item that the panel was controlling had its own indicator lamps and on/off selector switches
  • Whole panel controlled by one seven day time clock, with override capability via hand/off/auto selector switch adjacent to the time clock
