Cumming, GAAutomationDirect announces the addition of 22 models of its new Solo process/temperature controller line to its list of products, 11 of which are priced under $100.

Available in four standard DIN sizes (1/4, 1/8, 1/16, and 1/32), each unit is equipped with a dual four-digit, seven-segment display, useful for process variable and setpoint display. Each model offers dual output control, making it ideal for heating and cooling processes. Output configurations are available in various combinations of mechanical relays, pulse outputs and voltage or current outputs. The built-in autotune function with PID control feature allows for fast and easy startups, according to the company. Flexible control modes include PID, Ramp/Soak, ON/OFF and Manual operation. Universal inputs, standard on all models, include thermocouple, RTD, milliamp (mA), millivolt (mV) and DC voltage. Select models are equipped with three available alarm groups.

All support 13 types of temperature inputs and five types of analog inputs. All offer RS-485 serial communications and free downloadable software to configure and monitor up to eight Solo controllers using Modbus RTU or ASCII protocols. This utility provides the ability to monitor and log historical data and save it to .txt files. Units can also be configured manually with the keypad on each unit.
