PID or temperature controllers are commonly used in applications where the user is looking to regulate temperature or create certain conditions where the temperature rises or falls based on set parameters. PID and temperature controllers are often used in industrial applications including where ovens are present such as large manufacturers of baked goods, injection molding (plastics), and melting applications.
How Does a Temperature Controller and Sensor Work?
Typically, the controller will take an input from a temperature sensor, such as an RTD or thermocouple. The sensor will then display a digital readout of the measured temperature and automate on/off sequences to achieve a desired temperature at a given set point.
How can PMC Help?
PMC provides SCR controllers, limit controllers for gas fired heating processes, and temperature sensors such as thermocouples or RTDs that are tailored to your unique application. Looking for help bringing those readings back to a meter? PMC can pair your sensor with the correct transmitters, convert to process signals for longer cable runs, and suggest the appropriate digital meter to fit your specific needs.
Benefits of a Temperature Controller
There are a number of offerings PMC can provide to control your heating or cooling process. PMC provides programming of temperature controllers, with this process, temperature controllers can:
- Eliminate human error that can occur with attempting to control temperatures manually
- Save time
- Minimize costs
- Automate your process from start to finish
A temperature controlling solution could be the right fit for your application if your goal is to:
- Gain tighter control over your process temperatures
- Regulate your heating or cooling process, or
- Save time and money
