Temperature controller promises easy set up and control
12 November 2013
Pro-EC44 is the latest new product in the Pro Series range of temperature controllers from West Control Solutions. It combines an intuitive text-based HMI with configuration software to offer a unit that can be operated by anyone.
The controller offers the option of a dual loop facility which enables users to control two different temperature zones via a single unit, or to simultaneously manage a second variable, such as humidity and pressure.
Another key feature is the option to use five PID sets for automatic gain scheduling, allowing users to tune for a wide range of set points within a given application, or manually selected as part of a recipe for different production processes or materials.
The Pro-EC44 offers cascade control on applications with high thermal lag. In addition, a stoichiometric ratio control capability is supported for precise mix proportions of air and gas in a burner application.
All of these tools are available through simple interaction via an easy-to-navigate LCD screen that changes colour if the unit enters alarm status. Upload and download of configuration files can be achieved via a front-entry USB port.
The unit’s configuration and simulation software enables a range of convenient and efficient operations, including the option to save ‘recipes’ in order to speed up production changes.
