: 1) Boilers are supplied with minimal built-in controls, usually only temperature (heating) or pressure & water level controls (steam), and a high limit safety cut-off. The boiler controllers (e.g., Satronic)usually monitor flame, ignition,purge, oil pressure, etc.. More complex controls are optional extras which are added by a BMS/DDC controls contractor employed by the customer, to suit their requirements.
: 2) No.
: 3) Yes.
: Optimal Start/Stop features are available with BMS installations e.g., to start the boiler at the latest time possible to get up to working temperature prevailing outside temperature.
: 4) All information could be recorded with the appropriate sensors/transducers and recorded in the memory of a BMS outstation, typically 1,000 data points per sensor. Data can be downloaded or printed at intervals. The information is only available on boilers where the customer has paid for such a monitoring system. You get what you pay for (if you're lucky).
: 5) Yes, but I can't think of one.
