Gascom mcba 5

lanticlantic Member Posts: 2
Hi all,
I am a home owner.
Several hours I have been reading subjects related to triangle tube. (Interesting!) In Europe, I have an ACV prestige excellence 32kW mk2 (2010). Which is probably (almost) identical as the TT prestige excellence 110.

I have carefully tweaked the controls. With the objective of avoiding short cycling. Gaining efficiency without losing much comfort.

I would like to enjoy the trending with Gascom software. Does anyone know if a "Burnham GCI PC Interface Kit FCM/CHG Part # 101152-01" would work on a MCBA 5 type5 (50hz) (software HR7J) ?
All screenshots in the manuals show MCBA1400 software HR7A.
Quite convinced the cable will do. But I have doubts about the software. And find no downloads.
All info appreciated. Thanks.

    The MCBA controls are not interchangeable by manufacturer. You must have the exact control for your unit.

    I have no intention of swapping the actual mcba control of my burner.
    I would like to monitor/trend the control. And verify the results of parameter changes.

    That MCBA control was a nightmare in the field. Not the answer to your question but I'm compelled.
