The Eurotherm EPC3016 programmable single loop process and temperature controller maximises efficiency and repeatability and is certified for cyber security communications robustness.
The Eurotherm EPC3016 – Accuracy and Repeatability
Process inputs are fast and accurate, with exceptional thermal stability, aiding precise and consistent control over long periods without calibration drift. Re-calibration and user calibration correction functions are available to further improve accuracy.
The industry-leading Eurotherm PID algorithm delivers fast reacting and repeatable control and has been enhanced in the Eurotherm EPC3016 to further reduce overshoot. Rapid rise to operating temperature and low oscillation helps improve yield. PID settings may be adjusted to suit specific process operating regions, helping deliver optimum performance.
The Eurotherm EPC3016 – Connectivity and Cybersecurity
The Eurotherm EPC3016 is Ethernet enabled as standard and is the first Eurotherm controller to be designed and certified to meet the stringent cyber-security requirements of Achilles® Communications Robustness Testing Level 1. Ethernet communications are supported via a standard RJ45 connector, providing fast access to process and diagnostic information as well as connectivity to external PLCs, SCADA systems and IIoT technologies.
The Eurotherm EPC3016 – Modbus RTU serial communication is also supported.
A free PC-based backup and configuration tool uses a USB connection, to power the instrument for convenient desktop configuration.
