Product: SHIELD™ Commercial Water Heater

Description: Available in standard and ASME construction, the models now range from 125,000 to 500,000 Btu/hr and offer up to 96 percent thermal efficiency. Designed for a variety of commercial applications, the newly upgraded SHIELD models feature a fully modulating burner with a 5:1 turndown ratio. The new design can fire as low as 20 percent of maximum input when water heating demand is lowest and increases to 100 percent for peak demand periods. The new models also offer multiple connectivity platforms with optional CON•X•US®, MODBUS®, and BACnet™ modules. Lochinvar’s CON•X•US remote connectivity platform gives commercial facility managers and building owners the ability to monitor and adjust equipment controls from a mobile app. The MODBUS and BACnet capabilities allow building managers to monitor and manage the units through their local building management systems. These models feature Lochinvar’s advanced Smart Control™ System, providing a bright, backlit LCD display with soft-key buttons, and a wide variety of advanced control functions, including readouts of setup, system status, and diagnostic information. All utility and water connections are located at the top of the appliance to reduce equipment room footprint and increase installation flexibility.
