West Pro Series Launches

Posted by Ian Collins, Product Manager in Products on 30 August 2013

The new Pro Series from West Control Solutions offers superior temperature control.

West Pro Series of Controllers

The new Pro Series of temperature controllers from West Control Solutions offer customers yet greater precision control in challenging applications.  Key to the enhanced capability of the Pro Series is that all three units in the range – the Pro-4, Pro-8 and Pro-16 – provide two PID sets rather than the one typically found on alternative controllers.  This allows the user to tune for accurate control for a wide range of set points or various products with different thermal characteristics.
The Pro Series controllers offer a high level of I/O, with an unprecedented six outputs available and up to four digital inputs, plus an in-built profiler for a varied setpoint at each process stage.  The Pro Series combines a sophisticated level of control with maximum flexibility, an example being the capability to customize the menus, thus speeding up manual control by making frequently used functions available at a keystroke.  The result is complex temperature control capability that can be accessed easily by any member of the workforce.  Capability and convenience is further enhanced by the configuration and simulation software, BlueControl©, which allows a test configuration to be carried out locally on a PC.
Typical applications that will benefit from these features are; industrial ovens and furnaces, chiller and refrigeration systems and particularly plastics and rubber extrusion applications where processes such as non-linear cooling, heater current input and boost functions are commonly required.
In addition to the I/O provided by the Pro-4 and Pro-8, the Pro-16 comes in a compact 48mm x 48mm design, meeting the need of many applications for compactness and capability in a small, front-of-panel controller.  The Pro-16 is the only temperature controller of its kind to provide so many features in such a compact casing, offering customers a premium product that is powerful yet easy to use.
