Atlanta-based Siemens Industry has unveiled its improved TCP3000 temperature controller for extruders.
The pre-figured temperature controller saves machinery manufacturers time and money when equipping their machines, gives end users a high degree of flexibility and performance and offers simple, clear operating screens.
The TCP3000 can be operated using Siemens' new Simatic Multi-Panels, including the 10-inch MP 277 and the 12-, 15- or 19-inch MP 377. The system is supported by standard Simatic plc software, which requires no special, high-level programming expertise.
Features include a graphic user interface for analyzing temperatures and trends, separate control parameters for heating and cooling, tolerance and control-loop monitoring, control system identification for each temperature zone, wire break monitoring with a programmable controller response and a timer clock and limits.
