WITH a 5" colour screen, and almost limitless possibilities, the 1150 controller from Burkert Fluid Control Systems stands out in the world of stand-alone controllers.
The unit provides for up to four, and even extendible to eight, control channels, real-time clock with 50 programs to be created via an on-board or remote program editor, freely configurable inputs and outputs, multiple internal and external alarm functions, two PID parameter sets per channel and many more features.
Another important feature is the recorder capability for easy commissioning and trending of quality.
Because it can handle multiple (different) inputs and outputs as well as control functions it is an ideal controller for stand-alone applications with combined functions such as industrial furnaces (temperature, flow and gas control); water treatment (level, flow, pH and conductivity control); and metal hardening furnaces (temperature and gas mixing control).
As well, because of the inbuilt program facility and real time clock, the controller is ideal in situations with the need for very easy switching between various settings and products.
