Designed to CIBSE Code of Practice guidelines, and with full WRAS and BESA approval, the ICON heat interface unit (HIU) provides full connectivity for landlords and uninterrupted service for residents. ICON is designed for modern heat networks and improves efficiency through tight control of return temperatures and demand management.
ICON tightens up tolerances to deliver lean, low temperature heat networks that are needed to reduce carbon, increase efficiency and provide consistently reliable heating across the full range of operational conditions.
A HIU is similar to a traditional individual gas boiler, but instead of transferring gas to heat into the heating system, it transfers heat from the plant room to the internal dwelling’s heating system. A connected HIU is an electronic version of this; taking advantage of falling technology and communications costs, a connected HIU allows the unit to be electronically controlled allowing for adjustments and maintenance to be carried out remotely.
The connectivity enables monitoring to ensure corrective action is identified early. It offers multiple connectivity options, including GPRS, Ethernet, ModBus and MBus. ICON is essential to optimised designs and provides high-efficiency operation, along with bringing transparency and reducing the costs of operating heat networks.
Connected HIUs enable a proactive approach to maintenance with remote fixes through fault reporting, enabling first-class customer service.
