West P6170, P8170 and P4170 PID Valve Motor Drive Temperature Controllers

The West 6170+ 8170+ and 4170+ VMD temperature controllers incorporate advanced tuning algorithms, with selectable pre-tune and self-tuning for easier setup. The self-tune also reduces output activity to an absolute minimum without compromising control quality, thereby reducing wear and tear on mechanical components such as valves, contactors and relays. Plug and play technology allows you the ability to easily add to the controller’s features including communication by simply installing additional plug-in boards.

Features and Benefits:

- Plug-in output cards allow installing just the functions needed
