What are the benefits of the AWEIS Electronic Ignition System?

AWEIS Ignition will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of your fire pit at the flick of a switch or press of a button!  You can wire your fire pit to a wall switch, timer or use a remote control (add-on).

This AWEIS Electronic Ignition System is the smallest available on the market making it the ideal choice for fire bowls or fire pit features with tight spaces.

How does the AWEIS work?

Ignition

The starting sequence is initiated with a simple button click or switch flick. The hot surface igniter heats up, igniting the pilot flame which is then detected by the thermocouple allowing a signal to be sent opening the main gas valve. Once open, the main burner is lit by the pilot flame.

Safety Flame Sensing

If the main burner flame is extinguished, the pilot flame will relight it. If the pilot flame goes out the unit will commence the relighting sequence.

This system provides the highest level of safety for your fire feature. SWEIS will automatically make multiple attempts to re-light the flames, however, if the burner fails to re-light, the system automatically closes the internal gas valve as a safety precaution.

Factors to Consider when building an AWEIS Fire Pit

  • AWEIS is to be used with outdoor, vented fire features ONLY.
  • The Liquid Propane version is intended for whole house propane supply ONLY.
  • Ventilation – Install a minimum of 18 square inches of ventilation at the bottom on at least two opposing walls of the enclosure. Ventilation provides airflow to avoid overheating the components and air for the air mixer to function properly.
  • The AWEIS requires a minimum of one cubic foot of space beneath the bottom of the pan for installation.
  • Sufficient drainage of the enclosure is required to prevent components from becoming submerged.
  • A listed gas shut-off valve is required by the Code to be installed before the location of the appliance.
  • Installation – Certified NFI Professional Recommended
  • Adding a Stainless Steel Fire Pit Lid to the fire pit will help further protect your equipment from the elements.
