IMS Co. of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, upgraded its line of temperature controllers with the Model TM 215M closed-loop controller, which replaces the TM 315DA.
The new controller is designed for use with either type J or type K thermocouples, for applications such as mold and hot-runner heaters, barrel and nozzle heater bands and cartridge heaters.
The controller compares the measured temperature with a setpoint, then regulates current to the heater to maintain processing temperatures.
Model TM 215M can be used on IMS housings that accommodate one, two, five, eight or 12 modules, or any G series mainframe.
Also new from IMS: an add-on, self-actuating shutoff nozzle for injection molding. The product — an accessory installed between the nozzle body and nozzle tip — eliminates the need for expensive, single-purpose nozzles.
