New Consolidated Temperature Controller & Indicator for Plastics

Posted by Chloë Garrett-Dyke, Marketing Communications Manager in News on 19 August 2014

West Control Solutions is delighted to present a brand new temperature controller which has been designed specifically for the Plastics and Rubber Extrusion industry.

Using our in-depth extrusion application knowledge we are excited to have created a cost-effective and user-friendly range which is specifically dedicated to the requirements of plastics and extrusion applications.

The PlastX range offers a simplified menu which has pre-populated setup fields with default parameters for plastic applications. This, together with the removal of unnecessary options ensures configuration is straightforward and fast to implement for users.

The new plastics specific range provides options for Heat and Heat/Cool control and includes a function for setpoint ramping, which is particularly useful in extrusion applications to protect heater burn out. Furthermore the units can also be used simply as process indicators reducing the need to stock multiple products for extrusion applications, thus streamlining the product portfolio and reducing inventory.

PlastX The PlastX range is available in both a compact 1/16 DIN size (48x48mm) and 1/8 DIN size (48x96mm). Process and loop alarms are standard features in both units together with LED indicators for the band alarm, low alarm and product tuning to provide at-a-glance process information for peace of mind. A universal input, multiple output configurations and Modbus RS485 communications are all included as standard.
