The PCU Controller accepts either a 0 to 10 VDC or a 4 to 20 mA DC input signal, precisely scales the process signal according to programmable scaling points, and provides an accurate output control signal (time proportional, linear, or valve positioning) to maintain a process at the desired control point. A comprehensive set of easy to use steps allows the controller to solve various application requirements.
The controller can operate in the PID control mode for both the main output and optional secondary output. On-demand auto-tune establishes the tuning constants. The PID tuning constants may be fine-tuned by the operator at any time and locked out from further modification. The controller employs a unique overshoot suppression feature that 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 can also be programmed to operate in the ON/OFF control mode with adjustable hysteresis.
Dual 4-digit displays allow viewing of the measured value and setpoint simultaneously. Front panel indicators inform the operator of the controller and output status. Replaceable and interchangeable output modules (Relay, SSR Drive, or Triac) can be installed for the main control output, Alarm output(s), Secondary output, and Valve Positioner outputs.
A linear 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10 VDC output signal is available to interface with actuators, chart recorders, indicators, or other controllers. The type of Linear DC output is determined by the model ordered. The output signal can be digitally scaled and selected to transmit one of the following: % output power, measurement value deviation or setpoint value. For Linear DC control applications, the adjustable output demand dampening, output deadband, and output update time parameters expand the versatility of the PCU to final control devices.
Note: Output Modules are NOT supplied with the controller. When specifying the controller, be sure to purchase the appropriate output module for the Main Control Output and if necessary, the alarm output(s), the secondary output, and valve positioner outputs.
The Logic/SSR Drive Module is a switched DC source, intended to drive the DC input of an SSR power unit. It should never be connected to line voltage.
All modules are packaged separately and must be installed by the user.
