Multiple loop controller with DeviceNet™ compatibility
February 27, 2003
New controllers offer PID control of up to eight loops and DeviceNet™ compatibility, all within a compact 1/8 DIN package. Compliance with ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendors Association) and Semiconductor SIG (Special Interest Group) specifications make the unit simple to integrate into systems built on DeviceNet networks and CAN (Controller Area Network). Unit is available in four and eight loop versions and can support multiple types of sensor inputs, including thermocouples, RTDs, linear voltage and current. Each loop can be individually configured for on-off control or PID control, and loops can be combined to achieve cascade, ratio or differential control. D8 Series.
