Programmable, Single-Loop Process and Temperature Controllers Certified for Cybersecurity Communications Robustness
The EPC3000 controller range is Ethernet enabled as standard and is the first of the company’s controller 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 PLCs, SCADA systems and IIoT technologies. Process inputs of the EPC3000 provide 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 proprietary PID algorithm ensures fast-reacting and repeatable control and with minimal overshoot. Rapid rise to operating temperature and low oscillation helps improve yield. PID settings may be adjusted to suit specific process operating regions, helping deliver optimum performance.
