THE latest addition to Eurotherm's series 2000 family of process and temperature controllers is a powerful multi-function controller/programmer available in a single, dual or three-loop format.
The model 2704 is a high-accuracy, high-stability instrument designed for demanding, high-accuracy multi-loop control applications, such as furnace and kiln control, environmental chambers, and a wide range of critical batch production processes in the chemical, brewing, pharmaceutical and plastics industries.
The 2704 features a 120 x 160 pixel electro-luminescent display on which all the process information can thus be presented in a bright, easily understood graphical format, making programming and set-up and operation much simpler.
The user interface is menu driven via the display and 7 front panel keys, providing extreme flexibility and ease of operation.
Despite outstanding functionality, with up to three control loop, 20 inputs, 20 outputs, auto-tuning, trend display and up to 50 stored programs, ProfiBus compatible, the 2704 has just a 1/4 DIN (96 x 96mm) profile, and is designed for panel mounting.
The instrument incorporates a self-correcting input circuit to maintain calibration accuracy. Configuration is achieved either via a front-panel interface or by using Eurotherm's "iTools" configuration package running under the Windows 95 or NT operating systems.
