The Model CSPID series modules are full featured PID controllers designed for use with the Modular Controller Series. The CSPID1 is a single loop controller. The design of the system provides a true modular PID control platform for multi-zone control applications. The modules can accept a wide range of thermocouple, RTD, 0-10 V, 0/4-20 mA signals. With multiple discrete outputs, the CSPID modules can perform virtually any combination of time-proportioning or linear control for heat, cool, or heat/cool applications. The discrete outputs may also be assigned to one of seven internal soft alarms.
The CSPID modules connect and communicate via a backplane connection to the CSMSTR Modular Controller Series Master. The CSMSTR, equipped with serial ports as well as an Ethernet port, allows the system to share data with PCs, PLCs, and SCADA systems. The Master supports any combination of up to 16 CS Series modules.
The CSPID modules are available with various discrete output combinations, including relays, open drain MOSFETs, and triac outputs. For applications requiring large loads to be controlled, several DIN rail mount relays are available. The modules can operate in On/Off, P, PI, or PID control mode, and use an on-demand Auto-Tune that establishes the tuning constants. The PID constants may be fine-tuned through the serial or Ethernet interface. The modules employ a unique overshoot suppression feature, which allows the quickest response without excessive overshoot. The modules can also be operated in manual mode, providing the operator with direct control of the output.
Internal power management circuits allow the modules to be replaced while power is applied, which reduces downtime in the event of a relay failure. All configuration information is stored locally within each module, as well as in the Master, so replacement modules do not need to be configured.
The Modular Controller Series is configured with Windows compatible Crimson software. The software is an easy to use, graphical interface which provides a means of communication configuration, as well as commissioning and calibration of new systems.
The Heater Current Monitor input is useful for early warning of heater degradation, or heater circuit failure. The input connects to a current transformer with an output of 100 mA AC to ensure that proper heater current is present when the control output is on, and that little or no current is present when the output is off. This option provides immediate warning of a circuit short or open, instead of waiting for a high or low temperature shutdown alarm.
