Practical Control Solutions ’ custom built single and three phase SCR power controllers are designed for use in industrial heating applications where accurate control and high reliability are required.
PCS has built hundreds of SCR power controllers over the years for the heat treatment, mining, plastics and food industries and is able to build them from tens of amps to several thousand amps using its own C3000 SCR firing cards and quality components from leading manufacturers.
The SCR single and three phase power controllers are supplied with semiconductor protection fuses and RC snubbers for transient voltage protection.
The optional current limit, current source and current feedback of these power controllers allow safe operation with variable resistance loads such as molybdenum disilicide, silicon carbide, and graphite heaters.
Custom built to fit customers’existing enclosures, the SCR power controllers feature fully built turn key control panels available with all required switch gear, cooling, temperature control, recording equipment and operator interfaces.
