Application Examples of Ladder Sequence Program
Alarm Sequence Control Circuits Can be Reduced
The ladder sequence program is built in the UTAdvanced as standard. The ladder sequence function enables monitoring and controlling peripheral devices such as relays, thus making it possible to reduce costs.
Alarm action is built by the ladder sequence program inside the UTAdvanced, thus making it possible to reduce costs.
Host System Load is Reduced
The UTAdvanced with up to 4 analog inputs* enables various types of analog data to be captured directly into the controller and calculated by the ladder program, thus reducing the system-building load of the host. Action: Various types of analog data were captured into the host system (PLC, etc.) and calculated, and the results were processed by the field controller for control via a command.

Bright & Easy to Read Active Color LCD Display
Versatile Color LCD Display
The controller menus and layout are adjusted in accordance with the level (EASY, STD, PRO) of information required by the user. If simple temperature or level control is needed, then select the easy configuration. Very sophisticated applications are no problem for the UTAdvanced. Just select the PRO setting and make use of the additional functionality shown in this mode. Advanced applications can be programmed in the PRO setting and then changed back to the easy setting to lock out functions not required by operators.
Active Color LCD Display
With Yokogawa's Active color display you can instantly tell, at a glance, the status of your process.
Alarm Status: Active color display changes from white (normal) to red (alarm).
Deviation Status: Color changes based on a PV deviation from SP.
User-defined Color: Choose between white or red display for constant Readings.
The 65-mm depth of the controller reduces the constraints on installation location.
Easy Operation Map, Navigation Guide and Navigation Keys
The navigation keys is an intuitive method to navigate the controller's configuration menus and setting its various menus. Navigation arrows even tell you what button to push next.
Programmable Function Keys
It is easy to assign frequently used functions, such as the operation mode switch, Run/Stop, program pattern selection, Remote/Local, alarm latch release, and PID parameter display. The function of an external switch can also be assigned to the front panel key in conjunction with a ladder sequence program.
The UTAdvanced is equipped with a scrolling text feature that fully lists the parameter being modified. There is no guessing what parameter you are looking at. It is possible to turn off scrolling the text function.
Multiple Language Support
The UTAdvanced is fluent in multiple languages — English, Spanish, French, and German. The use of the UTAdvanced by local language operators is not an obstacle.
User Settable Default Values
Parameter values (SP, P, I, D, ALM1, etc.) configured by the user can be stored in the controller as the default values. Even if a parameter set value is accidentally changed, it can be restored to the original value with a simple operation.
Now Available in Two Colors (White or Black)
Now you can choose a color that matches your work area: white (light gray), or black (light charcoal gray).
LL50A Parameter Setting Software (sold separately) allows for easily setting parameters.
Using the message function and turning the contact input on/off, the message registered beforehand can be displayed on PV display by interrupt.The message is registered using LL50A Parameter Setting Software.The messages are limited to 20 alphanumeric characters. A maximum of four messages can be registered.
Quick Setting Function
Minimum parameters necessary for operation can be set.
The password function can prevent inadvertent changes to the parameter settings. If a password is set, the password is required when moving to the Setup Parameter Setting Display. When the password is verified, can be changed to the Setup Parameter Setting Display.
A simple and easy network connection is provided!

Peer to Peer
The use of the ladder sequence program makes it possible to exchange analog data and status data between communication-capable UTAdvanced.
Example: A UTAdvanced in which an input error occurs sends a signal to another UTAdvanced to enable that UTAdvanced switch to MAN operation, thus shifting the whole system into a safe mode. In such a case, the safety mechanism can be built into the UTAdvanced and is not required in the host system.
In coordinated operation, a single UTAdvanced termperature controller is used as a master controller and multiple UTAdvanced or other UTAdvanced digital indicating controllers as slave controllers.
The slave controllers are operated in accordance with the actions of the master controller.
