The Fireye MicroM Flame Safeguard controls are compact, modular burner management systems designed to provide automatic ignition and continuous flame monitoring for commercial sized heating and process burners firing any type of fuel. The MicroM is designed to be backward compatible with existing M-Series controls. The MicroM, through the use of micro-controller technology, incorporates "smart" diagnostic LED's, optional alphanumeric display (ED510), remote reset capability, and serial communications via Modbus or E500 Communication Interface. These options are available through plug-in option boards to the chassis. The optional ED510 display can be utilized to access burner hours and cycles, system hours, the last 6 lockouts with burner cycle time stamp and programmer configuration. The optional Modbus communications capability allows the integration of the MicroM control into upper level energy management/ data acquisition systems.
