KS 816 Rail Mounted Multi-Channel Controller

The microprocessor-controlled KS 816 controller provides precise, low-cost multi-loop control of temperature and features an interface for bus or field-bus.

The KS 816 can be used as a freely configurable field-bus transmitter with universal inputs for standard signals, thermocouples and Pt 100 signals. The instrument provides optional functionality for output hold in case of sensor break and the start-up circuit ensures increased element life and prevent interruptions during production. The self-tuning feature guarantees very short start-up times.

Standard functions such as set-point lowering and heating/cooling with four alarms make the KS 816 ideally suited for temperature control process in the following applications:

Plastics processing machinery
Heated moulds
Packaging machinery
Tempering units
Other similar thermal processes
