RKC Instrument announces the release of high performance temperature controllers, condensed into a slim 60mm depth case. Offered at an economical price from Pyrosales, a new auto-tuning algorithm calculates optimum PID values to shorten the time to reach set value. After the PID values have been auto-tuned, Fine Tuning (FT) allows the operator to adjust control response speed with a 6-level adjustment parameter (-3 to +3) without changing the PID value. A start-up tuning function is used for applications which require a long time for conventional auto-tuning.
This function can be selected at power-up, setpoint change, at power-up/setpoint change, and may be set as Only-once or Always-ON. These features mean stable control to eliminate overshoot/undershoot, and offers stability against external disturbances. The RB high performance temperature controller provides precise control by sampling every 0.25 seconds.
The RB high performance temperature controller is offered as heat only or heat/cool and comes equipped with the ability to store up to 4 set values, 2 digital inputs, up to 4 alarm outputs which include loop and heater break alarming as well as standard alarms, and a USB loader port for setting parameters. (Communication converter COM-K is necessary for USB connection.) Sizes include 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 DIN in an optional NEMA4X/IP66 rated case. (48x48, 48x96, and 96x96)
Options for the RB high performance temperature controller include a retransmission output for a chart recorder or data acquisition and RS-485 communications to interface with a PC or PLC.
RKC temperature and process controllers carry CSA, CE, C-Tick, RoHS approvals and are UL recognized. RKC products are distributed and supported in Australia by Pyrosales P/L.
The RB series RB high performance temperature controllers are for both end-users and the OEM market in all of industries where temperature is an issue; including semiconductor, chemical, food processing and production, plastics, packaging, and electronics.
RB high performance temperature controllers are available from Pyrosales .
