Have you released the new Coaltrol with multiple temperature settings? Can you tell me what exactly it controls on an Alaska Channing 3 stove? Also, do you have pricing?

We've just updated our website with the new products for 2006-2007.

http://www.coaltroldigital.com

We offer two thermostats, the T1 and the T2. Both have a simplified menuing arrangement compared to last year's model. The T1 has 4 weekday and 4 weekend setpoints, indefinite temperature hold (in addition to the normal temporary temperature override), manual convection fan speed control (in addition to the normal automatic mode), and is Energy Star compliant. The T2 is lower cost and has 2 setpoints used across all days of the week, like we had in our thermostat last year.

Like last year these systems control the stoker, combustion, and convection motors. Convection is always speed controlled. In two motor stoker mode the stoker is time proportioned (we have an improved algorithm, especially for low fire rates) and the combustion is on all the time. In one motor stoker mode (triburn) the stoker is either time proportioned or speed controlled depending on the firing rate, the combustion motor output is not used.

Like last year we offer the large control module (CM1) which has sockets for an igniter, power vent, bonnet limit switch, power vent limit switch in addition to the standard stoker, combustion, and convection sockets. This was overkill for many people's installation needs so this year we've introduced a new control module, CM2. It is a lower cost, smaller unit which has only the stoker, combustion, and convection sockets on it.

Prices range from $249.99 to $449.99 depending on which combination of thermostat and control module you need.

When you get a chance check out the website for more detailed information and come back with any further questions you have. We'll be here. :)

:o The CM1 as en entry for the igniter. Is the igniter already on the market ? Does some stove company have a igniter build-in ? I am curious and I want one. If igniters exist, stoker stove would realy compete on the market against wood pellet stove. ( Most of wood pellet stove have a igniter ) Tel me more. :?

We're currently finishing up development on our igniter element assembly and power module. It is not on the market yet and we don't yet have a date that they will become available. However, we too believe that a reliable igniter system will be of great benefit and use to coal stoker stove users. It should bring them on par with the ease of use and wide operating season available with pellet, gas and oil stoves/furnaces.

We've been developing this igniter system for nearly a year and half now and are eager to get it out the door, but we also want to put out a reliable, quality product and that takes lots of design, testing, and trial and error to get things right.

Our intent is to offer both retrofit and OEM products that work in conjunction with the CM1 and igniter ready OEM Coal-Trol Digital systems, such as those found on 06-07 model year Leisure Line stoves. We'll also come out with a means for CM2 owners to be able to use the new igniter kit, but that will likely come a bit later.

And, of course we'll also be pursuing arrangements to have them offered as standard or optional equipment on new stoves from manufacturers. However, we aren't announcing anything along these lines yet.
