Advanced PACs with PID auto-tune functions
Ascon has introduced two new programmable automation controllers that provide precision control and analog and digital control in a fully distributable hardware platform. SigmaPAC and Sigma microPAC include advanced PID with auto-tune functions and can handle virtually any number of logic and sequence routines. In addition, both come with Modbus TCP/IP ports and multiple Modbus serial ports. The units have been used to control high temperature aerospace/military applications, as well as for boiler and steam distribution, plastics processing, and food processing. They are configured with graphical IEC61131 programming software called OpenPCS. Sigma microPAC, for small to medium sized processes, includes onboard analog and digital I/O with some remote and expansion IO capabilities. SigmaPAC I/O modules are connected using RJ45 connection and support CANopen high speed communications. www.asconcorp.com Ascon Corp.
