Choosing the Right Controller for Your Facility
With so many options in the market, it can be challenging to determine the right temperature controller for different applications. A good starting point would be to learn the four basic elements of a temperature control system:
1. Multi-Loop Controller
When it comes to industrial processes, PID or Proportional-Integral-Derivative control is a key consideration. It’s a multi-loop feedback mechanism designed for applications requiring continuously modulated control. If your facility has several inputs and outputs that need to be controlled simultaneously, consider a device that provides fast proportional PID control.
Opt for digital controllers. Unlike analog ones, digital controllers offer accurate remote viewing, configuration and control via digital communication links. They also have enhanced security features to make sure that only authorized personnel can access critical settings.
2. Input/Output Sensors
Choosing the appropriate sensors is critical to the performance of your temperature control system. They are responsible for detecting and generating a signal that alerts your personnel of any change in the temperature of an object, equipment or environment. Complex processes with varying temperatures would require appropriate sensors.
3. Switching Device
Switching devices act as the interface between the main output from the controller and the heater to handle the required power. There are different methods to switch power, namely electromechanical relay, solid state relay and silicon-controlled rectifier. The output signal from the PID controller should match the input signal on your power controller.
4. Heater and/or Cooling Device
When temperatures exceed the limits, intervention is necessary. More often than not, a heater or forced cooling device is used to drive temperature change in response to commands from the controller.
The right temperature control system enhances not only safety and efficiency in your facility, it also increases the life expectancy of your equipment and safety of your personnel.
