Controllers & Indicators

Our complete product line supports every type of control application. Models with Active Color PV display and Ethernet connectivity are now available.

  • Single loop controllers receive temperature, flow rate, pressure, and other types of measurement readings from sensors and send corresponding instructions to control elements such as valves in order to maintain these values within a desired range.

  • UTAdvanced temperature controllers and digital indicating controllers employ an easy-to-read, 14-segment large color LCD display, along with navigation keys, thus greatly increasing the monitoring and operating capabilities.

  • The lineup includes 1/16 DIN to 1/4 DIN sizes. Heating/cooling control and RS-485 communication are optional features.

  • The UP35A/UP55A, 1/4 DIN sized program controllers, provides up to 30 program patterns, and simultaneous monitoring of 8 PV events, 16 time events, and 8 alarms.

  • The UM33A provides up to 9 alarms outputs and input correction function (PV bias, Polygonal line approximation, polygonal line bias). Also, 24 VDC sensor power supply is available as an option.

  • 1/16 DIN to 1/4 DIN sized Manual Setters has large PV display, and transmit 4 to 20 mA DC signal by manual operation. It can be used as a remote setter of setpoint for controllers.

  • The software packages enable to set controllers configuration parameters or create custom computation programs via the optical communications adapter attached on controller front panel.
