Need aquastat replacement help

Hello wetheads, this dryhead needs an aquastat. Lennox atmostpheric hot water boiler with damper. Has a L8148E1257 which I think is an OEM number for ECR. Tech wants one with a remote probe since the boiler is so crammed in a corner where you can't get to it. Anybody know of such an animal that would replace what they have? Thanks!

    Honeywell L7148F1075/B Maybe will work. I think it has remote electronic sensing. I don't believe they make a L8148 style with a remote bulb

    Beckett Aquasmart with remote mount kit. Lots of nice features, circ on and off delay and a whole lot more. Wireless ODR capable.

    If you have a vent damper none of those suggested so far will work. That L8148E has a special plug just for the damper.

    Thanks for the info boys. Yup, do need that damper plug. Guess going to have to fight putting it back on the boiler. Some builder ought to be shut with the teeny closet the boiler and water heater are in. Need to move that WH.
