Controller helps reduce heating costs

Pittsburgh, Pa.— The MaxPac family of compact silicon controlled rectifier (SCR) power controllers is designed with a footprint 30% smaller than competing systems and is said to help reduce process heating system costs in ovens, kilns, and furnaces. The controller family includes devices for single phase, three-phase/two-leg, and three-phase/three-leg configurations.

Pittsburgh, Pa.- The MaxPac family of compact silicon controlled rectifier (SCR) power controllers is designed with a footprint 30% smaller than competing systems and is said to help reduce process heating system costs in ovens, kilns, and furnaces. The controller family includes devices for single phase, three-phase/two-leg, and three-phase/three-leg configurations. They provide power control outputs from 120-575 V ac at 100-1,200 A and are suitable for high-power resistive or infrared heating in industrial applications. In addition to a small form factor, a standard feature of MaxPac is a temperature warning and shutdown system. The device improves system performance with an optional plug-in card for shorted SCR detection. This retrofitable card has an auto-configuration feature that provides detection of shorted SCRs and the circuit legs in which they are located. This reduces downtime costs in critical applications. www.chromalox.com Chromalox
