RKC INSTRUMENT ANNOUNCES
Economical High Performance Temperature Controller RB Series with New Algorithm
RKC Instrument announces the release of a high performance temperature control series condensed into a slim 60mm depth case. Offered at an economical price, a new auto-tuning algorithm calculates optimum PID values to shorten the time to reach set value. After the PID values have been auto-tuned, Fine Tuning (FT) allows the operator to adjust control response speed with a 6-level adjustment parameter(-3 to +3) without changing the PID value. A start-up tuning function is used for applications which require a long time for conventional auto-tuning. This function can be selected at power-up, setpoint change, at power-up/setpoint change, and may be set as Only-once or Always-ON. These features mean stable control to eliminate overshoot/undershoot, and offers stability against external disturbances. The RB high performance controller provides precise control by sampling every 0.25 seconds.

It is offered as Heat only or Heat/Cool and comes equipped with the ability to store up to 4 set values, 2 digital inputs, up to 4 alarm outputs which include loop and heater break alarming as well as standard alarms, and a USB loader port for setting parameters. (Communication converter COM-K is necessary for USB connection.) Sizes include 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 DIN in a NEMA4X/IP66 rated case.

Options include a retransmission output for a chart recorder or data acquisition and RS-485 communications to interface with a PC or PLC.

RKC temperature and process controllers carry a three year warranty, CSA, CE, C-Tick, RoHS approvals and are UL recognized. RKC products are distributed and supported in 27 countries throughout the world.

The RB series is for both end-users and the OEM market in all of industries where temperature is an issue; including semiconductor, chemical, food processing and production, plastics, packaging, and electronics.
