Next generation controller
May 20, 2005 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
The Danaher Industrial Controls Group’s new generation of bus-compatible PID controllers offer control performance and low installation cost, ending the need to compromise between the desire for accurate control performance and the need to integrate loop control information into a single platform, says the company. Now equipped with more fieldbus communication and loop control options than ever before, as well as an enhanced control algorithm and expanded features for the unique application needs of the plastics, ovens and packaging industries, the MLC 9000+ remains an affordable, bus-based PID controller breakthrough, according to the company. Based on an innovative modular architecture, the new MLC 9000+’s bus control module links up to 32 loop control modules to a variety of network protocols all within a mere eight inches of panel space.
