Watlow&#39s Series SD 1/32 DIN panel-mount-size single-display PID temperature/process controller has an optional countdown timer that supports timed temperature/process control, as well as on/off timing for a variety of external devices such as pumps, fans and lamps.
The Series SD&#39s set point can be programmed for a specified time period, and will revert to the static set point value when the count down time has elapsed. The controller&#39s outputs can be programmed to turn external devices on or off during or after the countdown time has elapsed, and several user-selectable front panel display options allow users to tailor control information to their needs. The controller&#39s display can be programmed to show countdown time, process value or set point.
The Series SD includes a universal sensor input, and can be programmed for heat or cool temperature control.
