The EPC3000 range of programmable single loop process controller maximizes efficiency and repeatability and is certified for cybersecurity communications robustness. Now the EPC3000 has native BACnet connectivity and provides the OEM and user a direct connection to building automation systems without the need of a costly and time-consuming third party gateway.
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.

The ultimate in graphic recording combined with PID control and setpoint programs
The nanodac™ recorder/controller offers the ultimate in graphical recording combined with PID control for a box of its size. The compact ¼ DIN panel mount unit offers four high accuracy universal inputs for data recording and PID control. This secure data recording device with accurate control is enhanced by a full color, ¼ VGA display to bring a crystal clear operator interface to even the smallest of machines. The nanodac is the industry’s first process controller and digital data recorder available with native BACnet. It provides the OEM and user a direct connection to building automation systems without the need of a costly and time-consuming third party gateway. The significance of the nanodac is its ease of integration into existing and new building automation systems, an overall hardware cost reduction by reducing the number of required components, and it includes an integrated color display to make data easy for the operator to both view and understand.Click for more info
Leveraging IIoT to Boost Process Efficiency
