|RKC INSTRUMENT ANNOUNCES CB SERIES 3 PHASE HBA OPTION|
|RKC Instrument announces an additional option for the Heater Break Alarm on the versatile CB Series controllers. A new two point input allows for a Three Phase Heater Break Alarm in addition to the single phase currently offered. Heater Break alarms reduce down time by detecting a heater load that has been either partially or completely broken. The HBA function requires a 30 or 100 Amp current transformer to check actual amperage on the heater load. The series continues to offer three other user-programmable alarms that may be set for High, Low, Band, or Loop Break Alarm. (Special specification code : Z-0168)
The CB Series, available in 1/16th,1/8th vertical and horizontal, 72mm and 1/4th DIN sizes, feature large, easy-to-read displays. The series accepts thermocouple, RTD, current and voltage input with ranges and scaling that are user-programmable. Relay, voltage, and current outputs are available as plug- in modules for easy field installation. MODBUS protocol is available.
Other features include digital inputs, analog retransmission for use with chart recorders or other devices requiring process information, and RUN/STOP or RUN/Standby modes. These contact inputs allow the user to remotely control PID loop calculations and output to the process without turning off the display. (CB103/CB403/CB903)
The availability of numerous sizes and features make the CB Series flexible enough for end-users or OEMfs in a wide range of applications which include plastics extrusion, blow molding, ovens, furnaces, kilns, food baking, petro-chemical, semiconductor, test stands, environmental chambers, and other heater processes.
