Question

propane tankless water heater


Looking to buy a new one. Am concerned about safety of the gas flame detector which uses a flame rod or flame stick. Just what is the principle of operation of these things? Can't be IR or UV.
One suggestion is that it passes current through the flame to ground and if no flame then no current. Is this true?
