THE 3116 controller from Eurotherm features advanced PID control, autotune, ramp/dwell timer, simple to use software and menus, plus 15 scrolling configurable alarm, warning and/or information messages which can be activated by any parameter.
Safety messaging advises the operator what is really happening in the process, improving safety and process feedback. The operator is alerted to alarm priority and exact cause.
The message can even carry instructions on how to respond. Thus not wasting time waiting for a maintenance officer to advise that the problem is non-critical, saving time and increasing productivity.
The new 3116, 1/16th DIN controller provides a new level of user convenience. The scrolling safety messages deliver plain language messages to let operators and engineers alike know exactly what is happening to the process.
The Quick Start wizard makes configuration simpler than ever. At initial power up the configuration is displayed on the lower display with clear descriptive text providing scrolling help for each setting.
Simply enter the required configuration from the table provided and the 3116 is configured, ready to control. No messy manuals or instructions.
Universal inputs enable the simple selection of any standard thermocouple, 2 or 3-wire resistance thermometer or process input. A custom linearisation can be installed using the simple PC tool, iTools.
The operator interface is fully configurable enabling any parameter to be promoted for immediate operator access on level 1 or password protected level 2. This provides for the simplest solutions right through to sophisticated applications.
The new three colour LCD display provides clear indication of process variables. The upper display shows the process measured value while the lower display can be set to display a range of parameters including, setpoint, time remaining and current.
Two outputs can be configured to provide any combination of heating, cooling and alarm. The Logic output can also be used as a Digital Input.
