6th Energy Magazine Hot of The Press

Date: 19/04/2018

This is the sixth issue of Cochran’s company magazine, ‘Energy’ we start with a feature highlighting our leading-edge boiler management systems, ‘Synergy’ and its new sister, ‘Eclipse’. Based around a premium quality high resolution touchscreen, Synergy is very much the ‘Rolls-Royce’ boiler management option, providing impressive remote operation capabilities and a mind boggling array of stats for the expert operator of a complex system. Drawing on the key features of Synergy, Eclipse has been developed to meet the day-to-day requirements of most boilerhouses. Like Synergy, it offers impressive connectivity and future-proof expandability and it still provides ALL the key information of its big brother, but in a streamlined ‘push button’ interface ideal for general boilerhouse use.
