Ignition Sources • There are 3 different ways a burner can be ignited: • 1) Standing Pilot Ignition • 2) Intermittent Pilot Ignition • Intermittent Pilot - S8610U • 3) Direct Burner Ignition • Hot Surface Ignition – S8910U • Direct Spark Ignition – S87
Universal Intermittent Pilot Module • What is the S8610U3009? • Provides electronic control of intermittent pilot ignition systems used on gas fired furnaces, boilers, and other heating appliances • It’s the brain of the ignition system • Receives call for heat signal from the thermostat • Starts the spark ignition • Opens the pilot valve • Senses to see if the pilot is lit • Opens the main burner • Shuts things down at the end of the call for heat • Monitors damper as opened or closed, if damper is attached One Part Number: S8610U3009
End Call for Heat Ignition On Off Pilot Valve On Pilot Lights Prove Pilot Off Burner Lights Main Burner Valve On Off Normal Operation of an Intermittent Ignition Module Call for Heat On a call for heat, both the Pilot valve and the Ignition come on together. Once the pilot is proved, the Ignition shuts off and the Main burner opens and remains open throughout the call for heat. When the call for heat ends, both the Main burner and Pilot shut off together.

Installation of the S8610U • Mount new ignition module • Do not mount with terminals facing up • protect the module from exposure to water, moisture, corrosive chemicals and excessive dust and grease. • Wire the module • Wire the module per the installation instructions • Verify the thermostat anticipator setting
Wiring continued For systems with a vent damper connect the damper to P1 Once the vent damper connection is made, the control must be used with a vent damper.
