High performance & simplicity
The next generation E5_C temperature controller is setting a new global standard in terms of precision and user-friendly design. Best control performance, easy set-up and outstanding visibility of the white IP66 LCD display have been integrated into a spacesaving housing only 60 mm deep.
- Fast and precise regulation: 50 ms sampling loop period time
- Easy to set up, and operate intuitively via CX-Thermo without power supply
- Best contrast display using white LCD technology which is visible from a far distance and from any angle
- Useful alarm and diagnosis functions for secure operation
- Practical timer and logic operation functions eliminating the need of a PLC
- Additional models with different features are available. Please check related product catalogue.
High-contrast LCD display for best visibility
The large high-contrast white LED display featured by the new controllers provides exceptional clarity and can be read from a distance and from almost any angle, irrespective of the ambient lighting conditions. This not only maximises convenience for users, but also virtually eliminates the risk of reading errors.
Easy set-up, quick and intuitive operation
Setting up the controllers is made easy by the incorporation of auto-tuning algorithms, and by Omron’s new intuitive CX-Thermo support software. This enables faster parameter setting and straightforward device adjustment as well as greatly simplifying maintenance. A timesaving shift key is also provided on the controller front panel to allow rapid adjustment of set values, alternatively functions like Auto- Tuning or RUN/STOP could be associated
Excellent control performance
Accurate and responsive control is assured by the fast 50 ms sampling time of the new controllers and by the use of Omron’s 2-PID control algorithm. This powerful and patented algorithm provides enhanced control stability, which guarantees consistent product quality. For less demanding applications, the E5CC/E5EC controllers also support simple on/off control.
Useful added functions and features
To maximise their versatility, the controllers incorporate a range of new features. These include a timer function, a heat and cool PID function, a set-point ramp function, enhanced alarm mode and enhanced manual output. These features are complemented by a remote set-point input, a transfer output, an event input and an auxiliary output.
Valve controlled furnaces with potentiometer feedback in ceramic industry
In sealing applications speed of recovery is very important. Each time the sealing jaws close heat is drawn away into the product. The ability of the E5_C to read and react to any drop in temperature means that the quality of the seal is maintained while operating at high or low speeds. In case of alarm or malfunction the bright blinking display is warning the operator instantly so he can carry out counter measures
Control products can be subjected to harsh environments where they can be splashed during the process or covered in dust or get warm through their location. The E5CC, E5CSV, H7CX, H5CX and K3HB all feature a NEMA4X (IP66 equivalent) front panels so are suitable for the use in these applications, also the low profile fascia means that they are less prominent in the front of the panel and so less likely to become dirty.
External influences can cause the temperature to deviate from the required set value. With the E5CC it is possible to program the level at which the display starts blinking. Alarm options include deviation from set point, where if the set point is changing the alarm moves with it. Absolute alarms where they are referenced to 0, standby so the alarms will not be active during the set point has been reached. Latching which means that once triggered they can only be deactivated by removing power. This is ideal for remote or unmanned processes, as the alarm will remain until the machinery is next visited.
In many applications it is important to control the speed of approach to set point as well as maintain it at a preset time once reached. This rate of rise control helps to prevent over cooking of the outside of the product. However multistage control is not normally required. The E5CC contains a simple two stage function, controlling the rise to set point and also the sinking of temperature versus time can be programmed.
Faster input sampling and control period
This gives faster, more precise heater control in rapidly changing, disturbance-sensitive applications. With a sampling period time of only 50ms any quick changing processes can be reliably regulated.
Process Value blinking display
This provides crystal-clear process status, even from a distance and without the need for interpreting the values. When one of the heaters is not at set-point the Process Value can start blinking to alert any member of staff (detecting a bad sealing at an early stage, for example).
Loop break alarm and sensor break alarm (with forced MV option)
In plastics production the tool used to make the product is changed quite often. Frequent reconnecting of the sensor or heater can result in a wire break (a broken thermocouple, for example). These alarms quickly detect such problems in the process.
Basic (2-step) programmer
In many thermal processes (food, brick, pottery etc.) a small element of timing is required. This feature enables you to ramp up to a set-point and set the dwell time period. At the end of this time, the process stops or continues with an indication alarm to alert the operator. With this feature, a fixed minimum or maximum curing/baking time is assured in a smooth, controlled way. Alternatively you can set different steepness for the ramp-down period, e.g. allowing a soft decrease of temperature to avoid structural cracks of the heat treated object.
Easy to connect, set-up and operate
The E5_C series can be easily connected, set-up and operated in only a few steps using the instrument’s 5 front keys. Our CX-Thermo software and useful navigation assistant for intuitive settings is allowing a very quick parameter setting, easier device adjustment and simpler maintenance.
Note: Other models with 2 control outputs or with different kind of option combination are available on request. Please contact the local sales office for special request. Replace “_” with “A” for E5AC or “E” for E5EC
