Combine temp control, data logging

07 July 2008

The ProVU quarter DIN size controller offers, according to product manager Stefan Langer, a range of functions that have only previously been available from more expensive high end devices.

The ProVU has integrated data logging, a large LCD screen with simple text messages instead of mnemonic codes, and a screen that changes colour according to alarm conditions.

A set up wizard guides users through installation and the configuration settings can be saved to a USB memory stick.

For complex process operations where greater monitoring and control is needed, ProVU offers additional functions, such as data logging, trending and profiling. As each feature is activated extra pages are added to the user menu, giving access to status information and the relevant control functions.

The integrated data logging option can be configured to log process values, set points and alarms by recording historical data for export to a standard .csv file. There is also a facility to provide on-screen trend and alarm views. Functionality is extended still further by the profile feature, which supports up to 64 profiles. Profile control is possible from the controller, by remote input or timed via the integral real time clock.

Communications options include Ethernet and Modbus TCP and RTU.
