The Red Lion TSC Temperature Setpoint Controller is a setpoint controller suitable for time vs. temperature, process control applications. The TSC accepts signals from a variety of temperature sensors (thermocouple and RTD elements), precisely displays the process temperature, and provides an accurate output control signal (time proportional or linear) to maintain a process at the desired control point. A comprehensive set of easy to use steps allows the controller to satisfy various applications. The user input can be programmed to perform a variety of controller functions.
Dual 4-digit displays allow viewing of the measured temperature value and setpoint or temperature and profile status simultaneously. Front panel indicators inform the operator of controller status and output states. Replaceable output modules (Relay, logic/SSR drive or Triac) can be fitted to the main control output, alarm output(s) or timed event output(s), and cooling output.
The TSC has been designed to simplify the set-up and operation of a controlled setpoint profile program. The setpoint program is easily entered and controlled through the front panel. Full display capabilities keep the operator informed of the process temperature, profile status, output states, and setpoint value.
The controller can operate in the standard PID control mode for both heating or cooling with on-demand auto-tune which establishes the PID gain set. The PID gain set can be fine tuned by the operator at any time or may be locked from further modification. The unit can be transferred to the manual control mode providing the operator with direct control of the output.
The TSC features four programs or profile recipes, each with up to eight ramp/soak segments, which can be easily stored and executed at any time. Longer profiles can be achieved by linking one or more profiles together, creating a single profile of up to 32 ramp/soak segments. Temperature profile conformity is assured during either soak (hold) phases or both ramp and hold phases by an adjustable error band parameter. The program repeat function cycles the profile either continuously or a set number of times. Power-on options automatically re-start, stop, or resume a running profile. The profile can be controlled via the front panel buttons, the user input, or the optional serial communications port.
