A versatile programmable controller from West Control Solutions, the CAL 9500P is compatible with CALgrafix software, which enables datalogging, process data archiving, chart recording, virtual instrument display and on-screen alarms.
Users can monitor and control equipment from any computer connected to the process network.
Profiles can be created easily on both the front panel and via the CALgrafix software. The step-by-step HMI structure ensures intuitive configuration of the controller, allowing memory to be freely allocated for programs up to 126 segments or up to 31 programs.
The software’s drag-and-drop profiling feature means that a 9500P process controller setup is quick and simple. The software allows configuration settings to be cloned and written to multiple controllers, reducing valuable time spent programming.
“When the CAL 9500P temperature controller is used in conjunction with our CALgrafix software, it can greatly enhance temperature control, monitoring and recording within complex manufacturing processes and automation systems,” says Ian Collins, product manager at West Control Solutions.
It is designed to offer the optimum functionality in a 48 mm x 48 mm (1/16th DIN) package, so it can be used in almost any application, including plastics, packaging, drying and laboratory equipment. The temperature controller’s integrated autotune makes PID control simple and efficient, while the unique dAC function minimizes overshoot problems associated with conventional PID controllers giving you greater temperature control.
