RKC INSTRUMENT ANNOUNCES HIGH PERFORMANCE PROCESS CONTROLLER IN A SHORT CASE
RKC Instrument announces the release of the FB series high performance temperature/process controller with an accuracy of 0.1%. The operator can select from autotuning, advanced autotuning, or a more advanced Brilliant II autotuning feature which allows selectable PID control. A special start-up tuning feature calculates optimum PID values and eliminates time that conventional autotuning requires at start-up. Sampling time can also be selected as 50ms,100ms, or 250ms, depending on the application.

The series has universal input, up to 7 digital inputs, 4 digital outputs, and 2 communications ports so that one port can be dedicated to intercontroller communication. A remote setpoint input and a multi-memory area is standard. As many as 8 sets of parameters can be stored in the multi-memory area and may be set easily through front key operation, DI, or communications. The multi-memory area may be used to create up to 16 segments of ramp/soak control.

The series is available as a 1/4 DIN or 1/8 DIN x 60 mm deep panel saving short case which has NEMA4X and IP66 waterproof and dustproof protection. The 5-digit display is a large, easy to read 20mm height. The front panel also features a settable bar graph display. The internal assembly is removable from the front to allow for easy maintenance.

A loader port comes standard to permit communication with a PC using its USB port. Win-UCI software is provided to make data monitoring/logging easy in setting control parameters or copying parameters to another FB series controller via PC. Communication capabilities include RS-232C, RS-422A, RS-485 and Modbus.

Options include up to 4 event alarms, heater break alarm, analog retransmission output, power feed forward function, and feedback resistance (FBR). An inter-controller option uses digital communication to achieve precise cascade control, a group RUN/STOP function, temperature ratio setting, and uniform temperature-rise even when using as many as 32 controllers.

The FB series is an ideal instrument for both end-users and the OEM market in a wide range of industries including ovens, furnaces, kilns, annealing and other heat related processes, test stands, environmental chambers, plastics, and packaging.
