Blueline temperature controller sets new standards

Ucontrol Pty Ltd are pleased to announce the launch of the new Blueline temperature controller and process controller range from Pixsys.

The Blue line range is a 48 x 48 DIN temperature controller which provides a number of innovative features and advanced functions which is unique for a controller in this low price bracket.

Set up of the controller can be performed in 4 ways.  It can be done by the frontal keypad via the configuration menu which is simple to interpret & displayed in  English abbreviated prompts.

temperature-controller-Modbus
The quickest and most convenient method is by Android smart phone utilizing the Pixsys App available free of charge from Google play.  The connection is wireless via NFC, simply touch the controller front bezel with back of the phone to read, write or clone the set up.

PC Connection via mini USB is also available using free labsoftview software.  The USB port can also accept a mini USB flash card where settings can be stored and downloaded to the controller.

Helpful  for both for installation engineer and operator include the new scrolling help features.

As standard the Blueline temperature controller accepts universal inputs which include 4-20mA, 0-10V, R,S,T,N,J & K type thermocouple, PT100, PT1000, mV and potentiometer inputs.  If using 4-20mA loops the input can be active or passive and powered by the on board transmitter power supply.

Even in the most basic model, most of the common outputs are supported in one part number such as 0-10V, 4-20mA, relay, SSR & even servo valve drive for modulating motors.

This is in addition to standard features such as multiple relay alarms outputs, digital inputs & wide ranging power supply 24-240 VAC/DC.

4-20mA temperature controller

Optional Modbus RTU via the RS485 port is available in the 244-23ABC-T temperature controller.  A second analogue input, second PID loop and second analogue output are available allowing for advanced features such as dual loop PID control, cascade loop control, remote setpoint input, output & ratio control.

New Budget Priced Digital Panel Meter

The NEW N24 digital panel meter is designed for measurement of d.c. voltage or current,  temperature sensors through Pt100 resistance devices, type J, K thermocouples, a.c. voltage and current.
The N24 has a96 x 48 DIN impact resistant moulded bezel which is rated to IP65, LED digit height is a large 20 mm digit making viewing distance possible from up to 10 metres
The input type is fixed, but parameters programmable by PC software using PD14 programmer are:
decimal point selection, measurement averaging time,  input scale to display range, automatic or manual compensation: cold juncti on
temperature for measurement with thermocouples
or wire resistance for measurement with Pt100 (N24T).

Available 230V AC or 24VDC with 24V transmitter power supply.

Low cost, high functionality, quality build temperature controller ATR226

ATR226 is the newest temperature controller in the ATR family.  The approach to design and production for this model was incorporate all the required features into one part number and mass  produce hence keep the sale price as low as possible.

ATR226-temperature-controller-dimmensions

This was achieved and the ATR226 packs in the following features. Programmable input for thermocouple, PT100, PT1000 & NTC thermistors.  Two relay outputs and one logic output for solid state relay.  PID, on/off algorithm with auto-tuning and soft start. Multiple alarm strategies & a digital input for several functions including manual alarm reset making the ATR226 an ideal solution for over-temperature applications.

Configuration by Labsoftview PC based program software, mini USB flash card or keypad.  Wide ranging 24 to 240V AC/DC supply with no need to change links or jumpers.  IP65 protection with impact resistant bezel and neoprene click action push buttons.  Also a shorter case depth of 90mm

STR571 Modbus Remote Display for digital panel meter with serial communications

The NEW STR571 allows remote display & parameter modification of up to eight STR551 digital panel meter via Modbus communications or any slave device which has Modbus RTU.  In addition the STR571 has a slave port it self which can be read by a master.  So the STR571 is a useful product to use an inexpensive local interface.

The display format can be 1,2 3 or 4 variables per page.  The fewer variables per page the larger the digits.  Descriptions and engineering units of your choice are programmable on the clear OLED display.  Data can be read and re-scaled and assigned to either of the 2 on board mechanical relays.
