C series multi-loop controller

Athena Controls, Inc. has launched the C Series Multi-Loop Controller, which features four loops of PID control with cascade and feed-forward capabilities for less cost that four separate loop controllers with similar capabilities. It is user-configurable and provides universal RTD, T/C, and linear inputs with each PID loop that can be independently auto-tuned.

Athena Controls, Inc. has launched the C Series Multi-Loop Controller, which features four loops of PID control with cascade and feed-forward capabilities for less cost that four separate loop controllers with similar capabilities. It is user-configurable and provides universal RTD, T/C, and linear inputs with each PID loop that can be independently auto-tuned. A small-size (4.5 in. x 7 in.) control board offers flexibility in embedded machine design applications. The low-voltage, energy-efficient 24 V dc control board is designed to UL508 standards, with auto-tune design for simplified tuning of PID algorithms, plus vertical or horizontal orientations for mounting flexibility. An ambient 0-70 °C temperature rating enables the controller to withstand hot environments. www.athenacontrols.com Athena Controls, Inc.
