The universal temperature controller is intended for precise and cost-effective control tasks in all branches of industry. The unit can provide simple 2-point (on/off) control, continuous PID control, or 3-point stepping control. The process value signal from a sensor is connected to the universal input. A supplementary analog input is available for heating current measurement or as an external setpoint signal. The function “start-up“ can be selected for increased lifetime of high performance electrical heating elements.
Self-tuning during start-up and to the setpoint
This function determines the optimum settings for fast ramp to setpoint with no overshoot. Using three-point controller configuration, the “cooling“ parameters are determined separately, ensuring an optimum performance matched to the process.
On a single keypress the controller can determine the best PID control parameters at setpoint. This function does not require oscillation, and performs a minimal deviation of the process value.
Display and operation
Clear information is given by indicator LEDs in the front panel that displays operating mode and I/O states. An F key switches the controller into the several operation modes such as manual, latched alarm reset or activates the boost function directly.
Front interface and Engineering Tools
It is possible to adjust parameters in seconds in Pro-16 via BlueControl software with simulation function, the required set-up for a specific control task can be determined without a detailed study of the operating instructions.
If required, the various operating levels can be protected with a password to prevent unauthorized access.
