Control device: New microprocessor-based temperature controller

12/06/2006


Process Control
Mokon has upgraded its line of circulating water, heat transfer fluid, and chiller regulation systems with a new microprocessor-based temperature controller. This device from Eurotherm reportedly provides accurate and reliable process control with easy-to-use advanced features, including internal PID functions that are self-tuning with overshoot protection.

The dual LCD indicates set point and actual temperature using input from thermocouple, RTD, and mA sensors. HMI functions include tactile push buttons and password protection with configuration options shown using scrolling text messages.

Mokon says the economical 1/16-DIN microprocessor controller offers several key benefits, including programmable soft start, energy efficient operation, automatic or on-demand self tuning, and advanced cooling algorithms.

Mokon has been making circulating liquid temperature control systems for over 50 years with applications in plastics, die casting, food processing, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, rubber, printing, and many others. This new controller module is now standard equipment for their products.
