February 10, 2017 – Red Lion Controls announced that its PAX2C PID controllers have been enhanced to feature Ramp Soak capabilities and FlexCard plug-in options that enable users to change or add functionality to meet industrial requirements without inventory stocking.
Red Lion’s PAX2C PID controllers offer PID control options for process and temperature applications that require local control across automation processes. For instance, the Ramp Soak capabilities allow users the ability to change and hold machine temperature – either up or down – for a specific time period. The PAX2C controllers feature 16 different profiles and enable 20 step changes to adjust the temperature or process control for a range of industries that include factory automation, packaging, metal processing, and food and beverage.
In addition to added Ramp Soak functionality, the following field-installable FlexCard options allow organizations to customize PAX2C PID controllers to add communication, setpoints, retransmitted analog, heater current monitor, second analog input and second PID control features:
- Heater Current Monitor Card: measures heater currents to allow proactive health monitoring and maintenance, thereby helping to remove excess waste in production environments.
- Second Process Input Card: supports programming for several functions, including serving as either a process input that acts like a separate panel meter or a remote setpoint that allows a remote input to change the setpoint value of the controller.
Red Lion’s Crimson programmed PAX2C PID controllers are dual-line displays that change color based on process status, alerting when a value is out of a specified range. With universal process inputs and AC/DC power input, PAX2C controllers accept DC current, DC voltages, process signals, thermocouples and RTD inputs to provide an all-in-one platform that eases integration. Additional features include an LCD display with bar graphs, programmable annunciators, up to 16 alarms and a built-in USB programming port.
