Eurotherm launches the EPC3000 programmable controllers

The EPC3000 range of programmable single loop process and temperature controllers maximizes efficiency and repeatability and is certified for cybersecurity communications robustness.

Accuracy and repeatability

Process inputs are fast and accurate, with exceptional thermal stability, aiding precise and consistent control over long periods without calibration drift. Recalibration and user calibration correction functions are available to further improve accuracy.

The industry leading Eurotherm PID algorithm delivers fast reacting and repeatable control and has been enhanced for EPC3000 to further reduce overshoot. Rapid rise to operating temperature and low oscillation aids high process throughput at low scrap rates. Different PID settings may be applied in different process operating regions for optimum performance.

Connectivity and cybersecurity

The EPC3000 Ethernet enabled controller range is Eurotherm's first to be designed and certified to meet the stringent cybersecurity requirements of Achilles® Communications Robustness Testing Level 1. Ethernet communications are supported via a standard RJ45 connector, providing fast access to process and diagnostic information as well as connectivity to external PLC or plant SCADA.

Modbus RTU serial communications is also supported.

A free PC based backup and configuration tool uses a USB connection, powering the instrument from the USB interface for convenient desktop configuration.

Advancements in Control and Data Management for
Heat Treatment

Wednesday, October 25: 11:40 AM A213-215*

Modern technological advancements make it easier to achieve accurate control to meet AMS2750E and CQI9.  Today’s Industrial technologies have are advanced rapidly alongside electronic innovations that improve accuracy and control. In years past there was a certain difficulty associated with accuracy from older existing controls to new modern process controls due to the level of complexity and cost involved. Today, equipment manufacturers are integrating a variety new technology to improve accuracy for more accurate monitoring.

This presentation will look at some of the old and new technologies innovations for input accuracy for analog and digital signals for both control and data management.

Empowered Heat Treat Operators; Using mobility & data analytics to make operators more productive

Wednesday, October 25: 2:00 PM A220-222*

Millennials (generation Y and beyond) are more socially conscious, more impatient and highly value individuality. They are digital natives – born into a world where technology is ubiquitous. They have grown up with the world at their fingertips.

In a short period of time these digital natives will make up the majority of the workforce. This means moving from an average workforce age of 50+ to a new guard of 20-somethings who have vastly less experience and very different working practices.

Bridging this gap will require digital tools to not only capture the knowledge of older workers before they retire, but also make it available to the new generation in a way that supports their preference for digital work practices.

As the crew changes, so must the Heat Treat plant.

Industry 4.0 and IIoT practices are enabling an evolution of smart connected products and solutions to provide the right information in the right place at the right time.

This presentation will outline the drivers for connected products and solutions, and will provide an overview of the digital tools being used today to enable the next generation of operators to become more productive.
