The T48 Controller accepts signals from a variety of temperature sensors (thermocouple or RTD elements), precisely displays the process temperature, and provides an accurate output control signal (time proportional or linear DC) to maintain the process at the desired temperature. The controllers comprehensive yet simple programming allows it to meet a wide variety of application requirements.
The controller operates in the PID control mode for both heating and cooling, with on-demand auto-tune, which will establish the tuning constants. The PID tuning constants may be fine-tuned by the operator at any time and then locked out from further modification. The controller employs a unique overshoot suppression feature, which allows the quickest response without excessive overshoot. The unit can be transferred to operate in the manual mode, providing the operator with direct control of the output. The controller may also be programmed to operate in the ON/OFF control mode with adjustable hysteresis. A second setpoint is available on select models to allow quick selection of a different setpoint setting.
Dual 4-digit displays allow viewing of the process temperature and setpoint simultaneously. Front panel indicators inform the operator of the controller and output status. On many models the main control output and the alarm outputs are field replaceable.
Optional alarm(s) can be configured to activate according to a variety of actions (Absolute HI or LO, Deviation HI or LO, Band IN or OUT, and Heater Current Break) with adjustable hysteresis. A standby feature suppresses the alarm during power-up until the temperature stabilizes outside the alarm region. The second alarm can be configured as a secondary PID output (heat/cool applications).
Optional Main Linear DC output (10 V or 20 mA) can be used for control or temperature re-transmission purposes. Programmable output update time reduces valve or actuator activity. The output range can be scaled independent of the input range.
Optional Remote Setpoint input (0/4 to 20 mA) allows for cascade control loops, where tighter control is required; and allows for remotely driven setpoint signal from computers or other similar equipment. Straightforward end point scaling with independent filtering and local/remote transfer option expand the controllers flexibility.
The Main Linear DC output has independent scaling, programmable output update time and filter (damping) time. These parameters permit flexibility in process configuration. The output can be set for 0 to 10 V, 0 to 20 mA or 4 to 20 mA ranges, and can be configured for control or for transmission of temperature or setpoint values.
A Second Linear DC output is dedicated for retransmission of input temperature. The output can be scaled and converted independent of the input and Main Linear DC output. This output is isolated from the input.
The controller setpoint can be protected from out of range values by programming the setpoint range limit values. Additionally, safeguards from inadvertent data entry can be programmed.
A second setpoint value can be programmed which can be made active by a user input and/or through the front panel on selected models.
The setpoint ramp feature ramps the setpoint value at start-up or any time a setpoint change is made, at a user programmable rate. This feature reduces thermal shock to the process and helps to minimize temperature overshoot.
In addition to the Linear DC outputs, there are up to three types of ON/OFF outputs. These outputs can be relay, logic, or triac for control or alarm purposes. Relay outputs can switch user applied AC or DC voltages. Logic/SSR drive outputs supply power to external SSR power units. One Logic/SSR Drive output can control up to four SSR power units at one time. The Triac output supplies one Amp of AC current for control of an external AC relay or triac device.
The unit is constructed of a lightweight, high impact plastic case with a tinted front panel. The front panel meets NEMA 4X/IP65 specifications when properly installed. Multiple units can be stacked horizontally or vertically. Modern surface-mount technology, extensive testing, plus high immunity to noise interference makes the controller extremely reliable in industrial environments.
