Omron has recently launched the E5_C-T range of programmable temperature controllers, building on the versatile Omron E5_C range to handle process applications that require Ramp/Soak timed programs. These controllers support up to 8 programs with 32 segments, totalling a massive 256 program segments.
Setup is either via Omron CX-Thermo PC software or by the front panel interface for simpler configurations. The three-level display is visible simultaneously so each process status can be easily identified. “Segment Jump” allows users to move directly to the specified segment reducing programming time and increasing production throughput.
Like the Omron E5_C range, they have excellent high contrast displays using white LCD technology which is visible from a distance and from any angle, with the E5AC-T having 1″ (25mm) high digits. With the option of up to 6 event inputs and up to 4 auxiliary outputs, all in a compact 60 mm (depth) housing.
Omron E5AC-T Programmable Controller – 1/4 DIN – from £306
Omron E5AC-T Programmable Controller with digital inputs – 1/4 DIN – £342
4x Digital Event Inputs, SSR Driver (12Vdc) Output, 4 Relays Outputs, 100 to 240Vac
TMS Europe also manufactures temperature sensors and can supply thermocouples, as well as, SSRs and Omron contactors with your controller. Configuration of controllers by TMS before despatch is optionally available.
