Description :

Libratherm offers Microprocessor based one to eight loop PID Temperature Controller (Model PID-8000) for processes requiring multiple zones heating or heating plus cooling control. It is most suitable for difficult process, which results in frequent system disturbances, and applications where simultaneous and accurate temperature control of number of heating/cooling zone is required. It also eliminates the need for number of individual PID or ON/OFF Temperature Controllers thereby saves on cost. PID-8000 can accept 8 similar type of Thermocouples or RTD (Pt-100) inputs and can provide switching PID or ON/OFF Control output in the form of DC Pulses or SSR Drivers for heating and cooling. It can also simultaneously provide 8 analog PID control Outputs in the form of (4-20mA) or (0-5) volt, which can be used to drive external SCR Heater Power Controller or other actuators. Open or Faulty sensor indications for each zone is also displayed with the respective Zone No. Each zone loop parameters like PID, SET, Hysterisis, Power Limit and Ramp Time values can be independently programmed from the user-friendly front panel membrane keyboard.

The display scan rate is programmable from 1 to 99 seconds, whereas the internal control scanning is at the rate of 100mS. It also provides common High and Low alarm relay outputs, which can be used for external temperature dependent, inter locking or audio-visual alarms. In brief, PID-8000 is as good as 8 independent PID controllers in a single enclosure, with facility of different input per channel, different set point per channel and different output per channel – a unique feature.

The serial interface of RS-485 in Modbus protocol is also optionally available for computer interface. The supporting window based software allows user to monitor behavior all the heating zones in both graphical and tabular form.

Libratherm also supplies complete ready to use Temperature Control Panel using PID-8000 and other switchgear items and power controllers, which finds its applications in large heating systems
