e-control flex is a flexible data and process management system to control and manage mobile heating systems and/or warm air heaters. The operating data and error messages of the heating system are determined by hardware and are sent by means of a mobile data network (mobile telephony network). The process data resulting are fed into a web portal which represents the operating data of the warm air heaters on a web page.
Thus, the system consists of a piece of hardware for the transmission of process data (signal box and modem) and an Internet application for the management of data. Optional sensors are available for monitoring the oil level in tanks or temperatures.
HARDWARE: Integration in existing and new systems
The installation of e-control flex is easy. The installation of the modem is carried outside on the housing - it is dust and water tight. The signal box is fitted in the combustion space or the switch box by top-hat rail. Five cable conductors connect the signal box to the burner, ventilator and STB. HEYLO warm air heaters as well as comparable third-party units can be fitted with HEYLO e-control flex.
SOFTWARE: Call-off information and reporting
e-control flex offers the possibility of administering mobile heating systems in groups (operating hours, service intervals, location). On account of the display of the units with the respective geodata, device fleets can be monitored during operation. The system records operating times and unpermitted movement of the devices, and allows planning of follow-up application in a perfect manner. By means of the system the logistic costs can be minimised, the application planning can be supported, and the operating data can be provided for further use by the service. On account of a permanent location monitoring, a theft of the device is recorded quickly as well. By using a tank monitoring system, the consumption as well as theft of fuel can be recognised.
Mobile remote control heating units
Today tenders required more and more frequently a 24-hour control and thus remote control of heating systems; a rental company who does not have this technology will be excluded from such contracts. As a rule it is an advantage to be the first to fulfil the requirements. After all: “Money is earned through service.” - many company have recognised this fact. Those who manage to convince their customers with innovative services will set up a profitable business field.
HIGHLIGHTS - e-control flex offers the user three significant advantages:
- Management and protection of the assets of the company.
- Reduction of the process costs for performance.
- The possibility of offering the customer additional services - at the same time increasing yield and customer loyalty.
