CLOSE

2016 exida Safety Award winner

SLATE™ has been recognized by exida, a certification and knowledge company specializing in automation system safety, security and availability, as a winner in the Logic Solver category. Exida has determined through extensive analysis of SLATE that it demonstrates exceptional work and has the ability to play a key role in making the world a safer place.

Rethink
how you bring combustion equipment management to market

Today, integration looks like this. There are individual components from multiple vendors. Separate platforms and protocols. Complicated wiring schematics and programming sequences. Developing a new product takes months - or years. It's how things are done.

Or, is it?

Meet SLATE
A single platform. For almost any application.

With the revolutionary integration of configurable safety and programmable logic, SLATE is easily customized for virtually any application in any industry.
In less time, and with far less complexity.

Are you ready to change your development process for the better?

BURNER CONTROL WITH TWO FLAME AMPS and LIMIT
MULTIPLE BURNER CONTROLS WITH I/O
FUEL AIR, BURNER WITH LIMIT CONTROL
Burner control with dual flame sensors (similar or different technologies) for applications with independent sensors for pilot and main or strip burners requiring distinct sensing at different locations. Limit input can handle up to two safety, dual sensor system inputs or combination of a single dual sensor input and multiple analog I/Os. Limits can be configured to recycle and/or lock out either via contact or com bus. Multiple analog I/Os can handle a combination of at least 12 sensors, and/or analog I/Os programmable per wiresheet (logic). This single burner system is ideal for applications requiring a high level of I/Os. Modbus and BACnet enabled for interfacing with BMS.
This multi-burner system is typical for a lead/lag or staging by equipment application. The analog capability enables lead/lag logic as well as basic boiler I/Os such as temp inputs, feedback loops, and throttling control. Modbus and BACnet enabled for interfacing with BMS.
Single burner application with fuel air ratio control, multiple analog I/Os and limits. Limits can be configured to recycle and/or lock out either via contact or com bus.  Geneva06Basic for dual fuel applications requiring low NOx, tight control of combustion mix with O2 trim and safety sensors and programmable logic. Controls throttling output and feedback loops.
