Rheem Australia has released its new Rheem Heavy Duty Gas BMS interface module – which Rheem says is specifically designed to make life easier for those in facilities management related roles.
The new module enables the interface between individual gas water heater units and building management systems, so as to remotely provide facilities managers with access to real time water heater status updates. Identifying any issues becomes easier, with the module providing a run/fail signal via voltage-free contacts (common, N/O, N/C). It also features an on-board LED status to allow for immediate diagnosis of problems.
Designed to be suitable for both new installations and retrofitting to existing water heaters, the module mounts to the outside of the water heater and is provided with common, N/O and N/C contacts for field connection by on-site trades. The module is also ideal for indoor and outdoor installation.
Operation modes include:
– RUN (N/O): water heater is heating water or is at temperature (green LED)
– FAIL (N/C): gas valve lockout or over-temperature cut-out trip, or loss of power supply (red LED or no indication)
The new Rheem Heavy Duty Gas BMS interface module suits Rheem models 621265, 621275, 631265 and 631275. Its dimensions are 231mm (h) x 112mm (w) x 78mm (d).
