Limit controller with DIN rail mounting

November 2013 PLCs, DCSs & Controllers

RKC Instruments has introduced its new SA100L limit controller with an optional DIN rail mounting socket. The SA100L provides circuit protection in those processes with safety concerns or where product may be affected at over or under temperature condition.

The controller is available with an IP66 rated front panel and has a selectable high or low limit, peak ambient reading and an over-temperature hour meter. The unit will monitor the peak value and the amount of time the control remains over temperature and can easily be viewed by the operator from the front panel or via digital communication from a PLC or computer system. This information can be used to save product that might have been subjected to overheat conditions.

The optional 11 pin octal socket allows for quick installation and easy mounting on a DIN rail or on to a pre-wired mating connector. The SA100Lcan also be panel mounted for viewing at the control panel. Maintenance is simple as the unit can be separated from the socket. Optional features include two independent alarms, analog transmission output and digital RS-485 communications.

The versatility of the SA100L makes it suitable to both the end-user and OEM markets in applications that include plastic extrusions, blow moulding, ovens, furnaces, kilns, food baking, petrochemical, test stands and heater processes.
