Temperature controllers

Temperature controllers with the latest technology

The compact temperature controllers from WIKA offer display, control and monitoring of temperatures. The configuration of the sensor input is made via the multi-function input. Resistance thermometers, thermocouples and standard industrial signals, such as 4 ... 20 mA, serve as the input variable of a temperature controller. The monitoring output can be set either as relay (for slow control), as logic level for the control of electronic solid-state relays (for fast control and high current loads) or as a continuous 4 ... 20 mA output.

What is D-control?

D-function (or derivative control function) is used in order to hold an output in proportion to a time derivative function of the input.

What is self-optimisation or autotuning?

The PID terms for temperature control vary in value and combination, depending on the characteristics of the controlled system. In current use, there are a number of traditional methods proposed and implemented for determining the PID terms from the ...
