The unit is powered by a 120 vac standard outdoor grounded power cord- simply plug into GFCI outlet.
As one of the most advanced flame monitoring systems available on the market today, it has been CSA Certified in US & Canada to ANSI Z21.97-2014 / CSA 2.41-2014 requirements. (This new EI system already meets upcoming 2018 ANSI requirements)! These certification should meet with all codes that may be required in the US and Canada.
Important Information Re. Venting Your Fire Pit Structure.
The minimum requirement is the enclosure incorporate 1 vent on at least 2 sides (2 vents total) at a minimum size of 18 sq. inches of total free area each (Example: 3”x 6” or larger) to ensure that heat and residual gas can escape.
HPC recommend the enclosure incorporate 4 vents total (minimum 18 sq. inches each side) to reduce the risk of thermal shutdown on the EI Series-some enclosures may require more ventilation based on material, size and extended use.
Installation of the vents in the mid to lower area of the enclosure is recommended.
Failure to properly vent enclosure may result in the fire pit overheating or explosion. Continuous overheating could lead to heat damage to internal components
