1/32 DIN Controllers Good Fit for Mobile Application

Opportunity: firerod, rtd, series 935

A manufacturer of foam dispensing equipment was looking for a small temperature controller to use on a foam mixer and dispenser. This controller would be used to control two cartridge heaters, which would heat two solutions together then be mixed and dispensed as foam.

Problem: 

This specific piece of equipment needed to be mobile, able to withstand a harsh environment and user friendly. The controller also had to be a low cost solution and available with a 24 volt power supply input.

Solution: 

The SERIES 935 controller was introduced into this application. The SERIES 935 controller was chosen for its small size (1/32 DIN), durable NEMA 4X display and low cost. The customer has since upgraded to the new SERIES SD temperature controller, which is also available in the 1/32 DIN size. The SERIES SD has the added convenience of removable connectors for ease of wiring separate from the control. It also has a user-friendly menu with the ability to lockout unnecessary menu options.

This customer also used two of our FIREROD® cartridge heaters and an mineral insulated thermocouple to sense the heat put off by the heaters.
