Chromalox has introduced the 1/16 DIN single loop temperature and process controller. The Chromalox model 6060 controller offers such features as two PID sets, multiple inputs and outputs, heat/cool operation, soft start function, self-tuning startup, and optional Modbus/RTU RS485 communications.
The two PID sets ensure reliable control over a wide set-point range. Separate PIDs for heat and cool strategies optimize control and stability. A universal and an optional input plus four digital inputs combined with six outputs provide extensive I/O flexibility. Additionally, 16 operational profiles are possible, each having 16 segments. Typical applications include boiler and steam processes, heat treatment, chiller and refrigeration systems, and more.
The company also reports that the available configuration software simplifies setup of the 6060 controller. Users can configure control parameters and simulate control operations to test settings before applying them."
