The PF2200 has the approvals for installation in a Zone 2 or Class 1 Division 2 locations. The enclosure is typically mounted near the burner it is controlling or in another location that is both safe and easily accessible. The recommended mounting height is 1.5m (5ft) above the ground or a platform for the comfort of the operators. Ensure that the BMS is mounted in a safe area for operation. Look for tripping, high heat exposure, and other potential hazards.


PF2200 enclosures shall be mounted upright in such a way that the screen is clearly visible, and the keypad is easy to access. Adequate space should be provided so that the enclosure door can fully open during maintenance and commissioning.


In some situations, it may be desirable to mount the system in a location not accessible to the general public to prevent accidental or intentional tampering.


Avoid placing the system in locations that are dangerous to the operator. Examine the area surrounding the potential installation site and look for such things as nearby open flames or close proximity to tanks that might overflow, and other potentially harmful situations.


Enclosures should be mounted to minimize the run-lengths to the burner assembly (ignition coil/rod and flame detect rod), as well as the valve train (solenoids) and temperature inputs elements.


To protect the system from being damaged, it should not be mounted:

  1. Where chemicals may splatter or bubble over from a tank onto the system. Chemicals on the keypad may interfere with an operator’s ability to control the product or view the display and LED indicators.
  2. Directly to a heated tank where excessive heat may damage the product. Refer to the maximum operating temperature listed in this document.
  3. Where anything may tip over due to wind or snow, some examples include poles that are not appropriately secured into the ground or tripods not secured with anchor bolts or guy wires.
  4. In locations that have a tendency of flooding.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is recommended to avoid drilling into the top of the enclosure. If possible, side access is better.


It is essential to ensure the cable and conduits to meet local code requirements to ensure the best compliance, performance as well as a safe environment.

* The Bath Temperature Input is safety rated ONLY if the input is configured as a Dual. If configured as a Single element, the Bath temperature input is NOT safety rated.


The wiring in this section is required for all PF2200 installations. Skipping or performing any steps in this section incorrectly will result in the PF2200 functioning improperly. Conduct pull tests on terminating wires in the BMS to ensure proper installation. Install tags identifying that electrical seals have not been poured on electrical connectors entering the PROFIRE BMS.


The PF2200 can be powered from 12V or 24V. The maximum current that the PF2200 can safely handle without blowing the main fuse is 10A. The system on its own draws about 100mA. The rest of the current is used by additional hardware such as valves. Make sure that you select a power supply that is rated appropriately for the total amount of current that is consumed by the system, and all devices attached to it.

For more information on the wiring guidelines see WIRING in the Product Manual.


PILOT VALVE OUTPUTS (Pilot 1 & Pilot 2)

Two powered outputs (terminals 15-16 and 17-18) are intended to be connected to solenoid valves which control the fuel line for the pilots. When Pilot 2 is enabled, both outputs work in conjunction with one another. Meaning that they open and close in unison. If Pilot 2 is disabled, the Pilot 2 output stays de-energized. The Pilot Outputs are capable of peak and hold PWM output mode at a fixed 3 kHz frequency. Supported duty cycles for PWM mode are 10-100% and are configurable via the user interface. Depending on the selected input type, the Pilot valve has a maximum of 5 amps and 12 / 24 volts.


Two powered outputs (terminals 19 and 20) are intended to be connected to solenoid valves which control the fuel line for the main burner. Both outputs work in conjunction with one another. Meaning that they open and close in unison. The Main Valve Outputs are capable of peak and hold PWM output mode at a fixed 3 kHz frequency. Supported duty cycles for PWM mode are 10-100% and are configurable via the user interface.


The Bath input is mandatory and must be connected to a Dual Element temperature inputs. The Outlet Stack and Auxiliary temperature inputs are only needed when a second process temperature (such as the outlet temperature on a line heater) must be monitored. Otherwise, the Auxiliary temperature inputs terminals can be left unconnected. Please note that Type-K temperature inputs wire and connectors should be used exclusively.

Ensure the Type K temperature input wire is used. (Yellow = positive and red = negative). Point to point wiring is a must with temperature inputs wires (no cold junctions). A cold junction can cause inaccurate temperature readings and therefore, poor temperature performance. Do not hook up shield wires; this should be done in the field if necessary. It is common to terminate the shield wires to earth ground or ground grid of each vessel skid; however, this can only be done upon field installation. The temperature inputs are shipped loose and installed in the vessel on location. This is when the wiring is installed as well.


The PF2200 system must be connected to a PROFIRE ignition coil.



Distance Between 2200 and Pilot * Wire Size
0 - 10 feet 14 - 16 gauge
10 - 25 feet 7mm Ignition Wire
25 - 60 feet 7mm Ignition Wire

*For single rod installations, the distance is defined as the length from the positive ion terminal, to the ignition coil, plus the distance from the ignition coil, to the ignition/flame rod as shown in the Single Rod Wiring Diagram. Note that the ignition wire should be no longer than 3m (10 ft).


The table below is a comparison between the PF2100 and the PF2200 wiring of the flame detection.

Terminal PF2100 PF2200 Description
Coil - Connected to BMS Common Connected to a low-side transistor The PF2200 should never have the Coil - connected to the BMS common (earth ground). If this is done, the PF2200 BMS card can be compromised.
Ion - Connected to BMS Common Connected with a 10 Ohm resistor to BMS common Large Earth to BMS Common offsets (>3V) may cause the PF2200 BMS card to be compromised. To alleviate this, ensure a low-impedance path between BMS Common and Earth Ground (assuming proper wiring of Ion - to Burner Nozzle / Earth Ground).
Digital Inputs (PoC, ESD, High Pressure, Level, Start 9V is a De-energized contact, and 0V is an Energized contact. >1mA (~7V) is an Energized contact, and 0mA (0V) is a De-energized contact. In an install where the digital input is wired to a I/O from the PLC, the logic will need to be reversed (e.g. ESD / Start Contact).
Dry contact switches which use both terminals (+/-) should be unaffected.
Status Contact DC support only AC and DC support PF2100 should never have AC come in to the status contact.
PF2200 status contact rating is higher (both in voltage and current) so it should hold all loads the PF2100 was spec'd to handle.

The following checklist will help ensure proper installation techniques for the PF2200 Burner Management System, fuel train components, and burner components. This checklist should be consulted before and after installation, to ensure requirements are met for the installation of the system.

  1. Ensure that the BMS is mounted in a safe area for operation. Look for tripping, high heat exposure, and other potential hazards.
  2. Conduct pull tests on terminating wires in the BMS to ensure proper installation.
  3. Install tags identifying that electrical seals have not been poured on electrical connectors entering the PROFIRE BMS.
  4. Ensure the Type K temperature inputs wire is used. (Yellow = positive and red = negative).
  5. Point to point wiring is a must with temperature inputs wires (no cold junctions). A cold junction can cause inaccurate temperature readings and therefore, poor temperature performance.
  6. Do not hook up shield wires; this should be done in the field if necessary. It is common to terminate the shield wires to earth ground or ground grid of each vessel skid; however, this can only be done upon field installation. The temperature inputs are shipped loose and installed on location in the vessel. The wiring is completed at that time.
  7. For flame detection to work correctly, the flame must be in physical contact with both the flame detection rod and the grounded pilot nozzle. This allows a current path from the flame detection rod through the flame to ground. When nozzle velocity is high, the flame may not make contact with the nozzle. This situation is referred to as "poor flame anchoring." To resolve poor flame anchoring, add a second grounded Kanthal rod can be placed further in front of the nozzle so that it catches the flame.


Time and Date Setting

When commissioning, set the time and date the current time and date in your region. Once set, the time stays consistent even in the event of a significant power interruption. In the case of an extended power down of the BMS, the time should be checked and set if necessary to maintain accurate logging of the systems events.

Follow the steps below to set the Date and Time on the PF2200.

  1. Enter Commissioning mode - Press the Commission key and acknowledging the prompt with the OK key to complete the entry to Commissioning mode.
  2. Navigate to Settings Screen - Use the Carousel key to navigate to the Setting screen.
  3. Enter Commissioning screen - Use the Arrow keys to highlight Commissioning under the Setup sub menu, and press the OK key.
  4. Enter Date and Time setting Screen - Use the Arrow keys to highlight the Date and Time and press the OK key.
  5. Adjust Date and Time - Use the Arrow keys to highlight the Date and Time elements, and adjust the date and time elements using the Plus and Minus keys.


Starting, and stopping the burner can be done by selecting the Start, or Stop button on the PF2200. The system prompts for an acknowledgment of this action. Press the OK button to continue with the safe start-up or shutdown of the burner. When shutting down the burner, press the Stop button. The system prompts the user to confirm the shutdown, press OK. When the shutdown process is complete, the system will prompt for an acknowledgment that the shutdown is complete. Press OK to acknowledge the shutdown.
With the optional manual Start/Stop switch, startups and shutdowns of the burner are achieved. This switch has three functional positions, as shown. When in the Stop position the burner is shut down and de-energizes the system. Moving the switch from the run position to the Ignite position, and holding the switch in the Ignite position for more than 2 seconds, starts the ignition sequence, and return to the Run position. By moving the switch from Stop to Run positions, you can clear a lock state.

The optional Manual Switch (part# PFA-004260 ) mentioned above can be ordered by contacting Profire Energy.

Note: Holding the switch in the Ignite position for more than 4.5 seconds results in a system shutdown on an External Stuck Switch event.


Cycle through the PF2200 Status, Settings, and Systems screens using the Carousel button.

Arrow keys are used to navigate screen menu items. The OK Key is also used in combination with the Arrow Keys to navigate drop-down menus.
Using the + and – keys, allow the user to change view modes on the status screen, increases or decreases settings, or drop-down menus enumeration in the settings screen.
Once the desired changes are input, click the OK button to save the changes. The OK key is also used to acknowledge any prompt screens.
To escape the current dialog, return to the previous screen, or escape from drop-down menus and spin boxes, use the Back key.
Enter Commissioning Mode by pressing the Commissioning button, and acknowledging the on-screen prompt. This mode indicated with the commissioning icon in the top right corner of the screen.


Below is a mapping of the PF2200-SB in Commissioner mode.

For more information on system navigation visit the User Guide section on NAVIGATION.


The PF2200 Single Burner BMS is designed to be configured from the user interface through a password protection mechanism. End users are not given the ability to program any of the safety-related system settings without the appropriate password.


Every setting in the PF2200 Single Burner BMS has a settings-level which is pre-programmed at the factory. The setting's level can be one of three levels:

  • Level 0 (no level): settings that DO NOT impact the safety-integrity of the system AND DO NOT impact the process operation
  • Level 1: settings that DO NOT impact the safety-integrity of the system BUT can impact the process operation
  • Level 2: settings that DO impact the safety-integrity of the system

In order to modify a setting that has Level 1 or Level 2 access, the user is required to enter the appropriate password via a prompt. Furthermore, modification of any safety-critical settings must be validated prior to starting the appliance.

Password protection and authentication of safety critical settings are done locally on the PF2200-SB BMS card, making it more resilient to unauthorized modification.

For Level 1 and Level 2 passwords, please contact Profire Energy. Passwords shall only be distributed to individuals that are capable of assessing the safety impact of the changes they intend to make.


The PF2200 Single Burner BMS is a logic solver designed to interface with various sensors and final elements. These configurations can be broken down into the following categories:

  • Inputs
    • Switch Contact Inputs: digital switch connection to the PF2200
    • 4-20mA Loop-Powered Inputs: 4-20mA input powered by the PF2200
    • 4-20mA Self Powered Inputs: 4-20mA input powered from an independent supply
  • Outputs
    • Powered Outputs: switched output intended to power a solenoid
    • Contact Output: switched output intended to provide status feedback
  • Mixed I/O
    • Ionization / Ignition: switched output to control primary winding of an ignition transformer (Coil +/-) combined with ionization flame detection on the secondary of the ignition transformer

Commissioning Mode is a mode that elevates the user to access all settings within the system. This is usually entered to make specific settings during installation or making major changes to the system. Below is an example of the different views from User Mode and Commissioner Mode.

User Commissioner

From the Status screen you can navigate to the Settings screen by using the Carousel key.


Below is an example of the navigational sequence to enter the Bath Sensor type setting.

A full layout of all menus can be referenced in the Product Manual under Menu Maps


The PF2200 Systems screen holds the more global settings and information on the PF2200. Here you will find troubleshooting information, settings, backup, restore settings as well as Firmware Updates.


In the PF2200 series, you have the option to select what events you record. To set up the filters for the event log, navigate to the System screen, highlight “Event Log” and press the OK button. You will be presented with the Event Log that, by default, records all events on the PF2200 system.

While in the Event Log screen, press the OK key to open the filters screen. Use the Arrow Up and Down keys to underline the desired filter. Press the OK key to make the selection. When complete, use the Down Arrow key to go to navigate to highlight the “Accept” button. Press the OK key to accept the selections.

You will then be returned to the Event Log screen where your filters will take effect and only show your selected events.

When a USB storage device is installed in the supplied USB port on the back of the enclosure door, the system will automatically log events to the storage device. The USB storage device can be removed and records extracted to be sent to Profire Service for analysis.


Opening the Data Log in the Systems menu presents a Data Log Configuration screen. Here you can use the Up and Down Arrow keys to underline the desired data to log. Pressing the OK key makes the selection.

You can choose up to 8 items to capture to the USB. The sample interval rate for data collection is 15 seconds. The Data logger creates folder for each individual data logging set, and creates a .CSV file that can be opened and inspected. when the USB storage device becomes full the logging will begin to delete the oldest logs to make room for the newest logs recorded.


Advanced system diagnostics are available for display. The diagnostics screen continually updates its values so they’re always live. The type of information shown, along with many others include:

  • System Voltage.
  • System Current.
  • Valve status and current draws.
  • Flame detection status along with AC and DC values.
  • Burner run time.
  • Average firing rate.
  • Flame fail count.
  • Daily energy consumption.


The Flame Diagnostics screen shows a real-time evaluation of the Pilot status. This includes the High and Low (DC) voltage in millivolts (mV). Also, the (AC) voltage in mV.

Flame Diagnostics will record the number of Flame Fails as well as Relights. On the right side of the screen, you will get a graphical representation of the flame health ranging from Bad to Excellent. The graph is in the form of a vertical bar.


The Status Priority screen allows you to change the focus of the Status Screen from Bath to Firing Rate. This makes the selected priority the most prominent on the status screen to make the information more relevant for the application of the unit.

To change the Priority use the + and – keys to alternate the priority from Bath to Firing Rate or back again.

The right side of the screen shows the various layouts of the status screen.

The right portion of this screen shows the different layouts in accordance to the selected priority.


The About screen shows all the information about the Hardware and Software for the PF2200. This includes, but not limited to such information as Hardware Model, Serial Number, Manufacturing Date, Testing Date, Firmware Version, as well as information on the User Interface software.


Reset Settings allows the user to reset all the Burner Management Systems settings back to the factory defaults. When this action is taken, the user will be prompted to confirm the intention to reset all settings to defaults.


BMS settings may be saved to a USB backup. This will create a human-readable .csv file that may be restored on the same unit later or used to configure other units to the same settings.

Settings can only be restored to another single burner BMS unit, the settings are not compatible between Profire product lineups.

Settings can be restored between different firmware version, however there is no guarantee of compatibility.

Not all settings may be restored due to mismatches in settings between different firmware versions.

In these cases, the settings that have failed to restore are listed on the UI screen. The commissioning complete setting is always reset to default during the restore. The operator must validate all setting on the BMS unit and acknowledge the completion of commissioning.



This very basic fire-up sequence assumes that all wiring is correct, and solid earth ground is installed.

  1. Apply power to the unit. The system runs a self-diagnostic test.
  2. The unit should display a “Ready” status, indicating that it is ready to fire.
  3. Ensure all ball valves are closed.
  4. Verify temperatures against an analog temperature gauges.
  5. Open the pilot ball valve, and start unit.
  6. Confirm flame signal is adequate.
  7. Visually confirm that the pilot flame safely lights the main burner.
  8. Slowly open the main ball valve. Once the stack temperature has increased, the main ball valve can be fully opened.
  9. Cycle the unit off and on with all the valves open and check all shutdowns that are wired into the PF2200.


For information on the operation of the PF2200-SB, refer to the Operations section of the User Guide found here.


For a complete list of Alerts and there meaning, refer to the PF2200 ALERT CODES.

  3. If firmware update fails, card is likely faulty.
Ignition transformer “clicks” but no visible spark
  1. Ensure all wires in the ignition path are properly terminated and that there is a low impedance path from the primary-windings to the BMS card as well as the secondary-windings to the ignition rod.
  2. Ensure the gap between the ignition rod and the burner housing is within the tolerances specified in this manual under PF2200 Declarations section under ”High Voltage Spark Gap Range”. Often times there is either excess buildup or the rod has drooped to compromise the gap distance.
Solenoids are not turning on, or turning on then over time turn off
  1. Ensure the solenoid is wired correctly and to the appropriate terminals.
  • To ensure proper solenoid wiring, a multi-meter in OHM mode can be used to measure the resistance between the + and – terminal of the associated output. Note: this measurement should be done with the BMS card powered off.
  • If properly wired, the multi-meter should read a resistance of the solenoid coil plus the run length (i.e. if the multimeter reads open, there is likely a problem with wiring).
  1. Ensure the PWM setting is correct for the appropriate solenoid.
  • If using a peak-and-hold solenoid, the appropriate PWM setting can be found in the solenoid data sheet. Typically add a margin of 5-10% to allow for temperature variance
  • If using a non-peak-and-hold solenoid, ensure the PWM setting is set to 100%
Digital input will not energize
  1. Ensure the input is properly wired. See section 4 for Interfacing / Wiring configurations.
  2. In the case of a dry contact, ensure the PWR terminal is connected and is sourcing the correct voltage.
  3. Ensure adequate amount of wetting current is being applied to through contact.
  • Run a current meter in series with the digital input switch and verify the energized state meets the requirements outlined in the “Electrical and Mechanical Ratings” section of this document.
  • If there is not adequate wetting current, the digital input either has too high of an impedance or the wiring has been compromised.


In order to ensure that the PF2200 system works correctly and efficiently, the following maintenance and inspection diagnostic queries should be followed:

  • Ensure that all wires are connected correctly.
  • Routinely check for corrosion.
  • Wires must not be frayed or worn, and all insulation must be intact and undamaged.
  • Ensure that no moisture or condensation is apparent on the board within the enclosure.
  • Check that the board does not show any sign of mechanical damage (e.g. – damage from impact from a dropped item such as a screwdriver).
  • Check that the board does not show any sign of electrical damage. This means that no components should be burnt or damaged in any way.
  • Confirm that the temperature of the board is within ambient temperature operating limits.
  • Check that the device is not subject to excessive vibration.
  • Routine inspections should be performed on all equipment. If any abnormality is found, corrective actions should be taken. If the abnormality cannot be corrected, contact PROFIRE as soon as possible.
  • A qualified technician should perform any tests necessary to confirm that the equipment is still in a safe condition.

Note: care should be taken to ensure that testing does NOT damage the equipment in any way.


If the card becomes dirty it can be cleaned with compressed air. Do NOT use solvents, cleaners, or liquids to clean the board. Caution must be exercised when cleaning the board in order to prevent damage from ESD (electrostatic discharge).


Please contact PROFIRE should any replacement be required.
