The controller combines precise control and measurement performance with a high speed Ethernet connection incorporating an integral switch for daisy chain connection to supervisors, panels or PLC. Cybersecurity is certified to the stringent requirements of Achilles® CRT Level 1.
User function block wiring with optional math, logic, totalizer and specialized functions allows the unit to take on additional system functions beyond PID control.
EPC2000 is designed for an extended service life, with FRAM battery-free non-volatile data storage.
Accuracy and repeatability
The EPC2000 measurement input is fast and accurate, with exceptional thermal stability, aiding precise and consistent control over long periods without calibration drift. As such it provides excellent front end control for processes requiring accurate control, including aerospace and advanced materials processing.
The Eurotherm PID algorithm delivers fast reacting and repeatable control and has been further enhanced to help reduce overshoot Rapid attainment of operating temperature and low oscillation aids high process throughput at low scrap rates. Different PID settings may be applied in different operating ranges for optimum performance.
