Bus-based controller works with PLCs, HMIs; eliminates PID blocks

By Control Engineering Staff March 7, 2001

Gurnee, Ill. -MLC9000 bus-based temperature controller integrates temperature and machine control with PLCs or human-machine interfaces (HMI). Modular, DIN- rail-mounted innovation eliminates the need for integrated PID blocks, and multiple, single-loop, panel-mount controllers and communicates directly to the PLC via buses or serial port. MLC9000’s other features include 100 msec sample time, built-in heater break alarms, and ability to hot swap single loops. Danaher Controls www.danaher.com
