Fire by Design MGRTFBP-T Electronic Ignition Gas Fire Pit T-Burner Kit with Linear Flat Pan provides a high quality component that can be used to complete a DIY fire pit project. The patented All-Weather Electronic Ignition System (AWEIS) features a reliable blend of technology and components to offer a simple and quick ignition to a gas fire feature. The 316 marine grade stainless steel control box safely houses the electronic components to withstand the elements in some of the most extreme wind, rain, and other inclement weather. This unit operates on 24VAC or 30VDC power to start the hot surface igniter, which ignites the pilot light. After the pilot is lit, the thermocouple senses the heat and transfers the electronic signal to open the main gas valve.

Flame Sensing - Thermopile detects presence of flame and safely shuts off gas if flames are extinguished
Beginning in 2005, Fire by Design started offering electronic ignition components for outdoor fire features using the same parts found in indoor units with a simple "weatherproof" box and labeled them as 'outdoor use'. Shortly after experiencing issues with the electronic components, founder Bob Roman realized he could develope a better automated outdoor ignition system. What he discovered was a better outdoor unit had to start with a superior "controller". After working with a local engineering firm and rigorous testing, Roman came up with the All Weather Electronic Ignition System (AWEIS for short) that provdied a unit that will operate in winds in excess of 55 mph and can even opearate when submerged in water - truly an impressive unit for the harshest of climates.
