Lakewood Model 2255 Multi-Boiler Controller

Discontinued Model

The Lakewood Model 2255 Multi-Boiler Controller uses LonWorks® Technology for accurate control of your boiler system. The system will allow control of 1-to-8 boilers using the cycle/sample or continuous sample method. Two water meter inputs are available which can be used to feed chemicals. Each conductivity input contains its own microcontroller which talks directly to the relay that controls the motorized ball valve for each boiler. The 2255 can be programmed with LRWS (Lakewood Remote Windows Software) or from the keypad of the controller. LRWS allows data to be accumulated on all boilers, water meter inputs, chemical pump on time and more. LRWS will also allow the user to make graphs of the downloaded information, print conductivity values or export information for use with datalogging spreadsheets.
