Burnham Alpine Header Sensor

PeterWhite Member Posts: 2
I was wondering whether someone could tell me what the Header Sensor is used for. I noticed that my Boiler doesn't have one installed per the sensor status on the display. Is this of concern? I've searched high and low for the answer, and can't find anything. Thanks in advance.

    I believe the header sensor is for multiple boiler applications and lead/Lag . If you have a single boiler application it is not needed.

    As usual Tim you are absolutely correct, multiple boilers.
