Faster input sampling and control period
This gives faster, more precise heater control in rapidly changing, disturbance-sensitive applications.
PV colour change
This provides crystal-clear process status, even from a distance and without the need for interpreting the values. When one of the heaters is not at set-point the PV can change colour to alert any member of staff (detecting a bad sealing at an early stage, for example).
Loop break alarm and sensor break alarm (with forced MV option)
In plastics production the tool used to make the product is changed quite often. Frequent reconnecting of the sensor or heater can result in a wire break (a broken thermocouple, for example). These alarms quickly detect such problems in the process.
Basic (2-step) programmer
In many thermal processes (food, brick, pottery etc.) a small element of timing is required. This feature enables you to ramp up to a set-point and set the dwell time period. At the end of this time, the process stops or continues with an indication alarm to alert the operator. With this feature, a fixed minimum or maximum curing/baking time is assured in a smooth, controlled way.
