The Red Lion PCU Process Controller accepts either 0 to 10 VDC or a 0 to 20 mA DC input signal, precisely scales the process signal according to programmable scaling points, and provides an accurate output control signal (time proportional, linear, or valve position) to maintain a process at the desired control point. A comprehensive set of easy to use program instructions allows the controller to solve various applications.
The controller can operate in the PID control mode for both the main output and optional secondary output, with on-demand auto-tune, that establishes the tuning constants. The PID tuning constants may be fine-tuned by the operator at any time and then locked-out from further modification. The controller employs a unique overshoot suppression feature, which allows the quickest response without excessive overshoot. The unit can be transferred to operate in the manual mode, providing the operator with direct control of the output. The controller may also be programmed to operate in the ON/OFF control mode with adjustable hysteresis.
Dual 4-digit displays allow viewing of the process value and setpoint simultaneously. Front panel indicators inform the operator of the controller and output status. Replaceable and interchangeable output modules (Relay, Logic/SSR Drive, or Triac) can be installed for the main control output, alarm output(s) and secondary output.
