Red Lion controls expands PID controller portfolio
25 April 2018
The expanded and reliable process control is now available in one convenient and cost-effective package.
Red Lion Controls, global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, present additional features for its PXU series of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers, including Ramp/Soak, CT Input, 2nd Analog Input and 2nd Analog Output. The PXU series is designed to enable tighter, more reliable control over a wide range of processes, including temperature, flow and pressure, from a single model.
Production engineers and machine builders now have the opportunity to select from a wide range of controllers with varying capabilities and in three sizes (1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 DIN models). Integration with Red Lion’s Crimson enabled hardware provides a complete indication, data acquisition & control solution for virtually any application.
The additional features allow customers to use one source for their process control needs. For example, for processes requiring different temperatures, the Ramp/Soak capability allows timeline vs. temperature programming for the process that will automatically be run by the PXU. With CT input, high current signals can be transferred to lower ones in order to be safely accepted by a PID controller or panel meter. For remote changing of a PID controller’s setpoint value, the 2nd Analog Input allows modification from an external device.
