We have a project that is specifiying the use of a remote control for an outdoor 45,000 BTU Nat Gas infrared heater. We have been looking at remotes that are used for fireplaces.

A simple 24V control should work.
The difficult part is finding a manufacturer! We have been having the most difficult time tracking anything down.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Hmmm, just replaced the pilot/thermocouple/thermopile on my White Mountain Hearth propane warm morning stove.

Research says all newer systems, whether NG or LPG use a 750mv system.

So any 750mv designated control will work.

The remote on mine is a d12RCM-RX. Just google that, and you will get hits for manufacturers and sellers.

Here's another online source that showcases one right on this link:

EDIT: Here's a link to a RoberShaw Training manual. Gives good info, including their remote models and other suppliers:

The biggest issue, I believe is getting a 120v to the heater. Might do a little trenching, but, it shouldn't be too hard to find a source to tap into, and call it a wonderful thing.

Probably could find get the controller from Gensco or Gas Products.
