Lochinvar EcoShield, app-based, smart devise, continual monitoring, water heater

Lochinvar has adapted its ‘smart’ app-based boiler control system for use with its EcoShield range of commercial water heaters.

The Con-X-us system enables users to connect their smart devices, including smart phones and tablets, to the onboard controls. This allows the water heaters to be monitored and adjusted from literally anywhere in the world.

The availability of continual monitoring using smart technology in this way ensures any operating problems can be identified early. This means they can be quickly rectified, thus minimising the impact of any potential loss of hot water supply.

Con-X-us is available as an ancillary option, which can be ordered and fitted to the water heater before despatch or retrofitted on site. The user only requires an internet connection, but any loss of connectivity will not affect the water heater’s operation.

The app is free to download and is suitable for iPhone or Android devices. There are no ongoing costs and it provides full control with email or text alerts keeping users connected and updated 24/7.

EcoShield water heaters are available in six models with hot water recovery rates ranging from 612 to 2,436 litres per hour, based on a 50ºC temperature rise. They can now be remotely operated using the Con-X-us touch screen technology or by typing in specific information to adjust set points, outdoor reset curves, pump controls and other functions. Con-X-us allows users to monitor the performance of the water heater in real time, and can be configured to provide alerts, including service reminders or system lockout alarms.
