Controller

The interface between technology and user

The controller is the interface between the operator and the sensor. As evaluation unit it provides a visualization of the process data, manages the data sets to calculate the concentration value and allows the calibration and adjustment of measuring data.

The high-resolution touch screen provides best technical comfort and a virtual keyboard, including Latin, Asian and Cyrillic characters. A real time chart shows the trends and provides quick and clear information about the current process cycle, while the menu and display functions are clearly laid out. The user interface is intuitive and simple to use. Password-protected user administration and a stable, comprehensive data memory for all process values and events ensure the traceability, reliability and safety of the system.

Various digital interface options allow simple device integration in any control system. Moreover, via a browser conncetion, the controller can be operated with a PC or tablet.

  • secure remote control of the controller via browser with PC or tablet

 

Functions

Clear Display Layout

The main view of the controller offers a fast overview oft the current product, its measured value and the liquids temperature at the measuring point.
The limit value display in the left screen area enables a rapid recognition of deviations to the desired measuring range. If a limit is exeeded, the pin showing the current value will turn its color into red.


Chart View

The trend chart offers helpful information and allows optimum process monitoring.


Product Data Set Management

The controller manages the data sets of up to 32 products or optional a maximum of 99 products. It is possible to select the products via the specific menu. Using the virtual keyboard the product name can be changed.


Calibration

The calculation of the concentration can be adjusted to achieve optimum process results.


Userfriendly Menu

The controller has a lot of parameters and helpful functions. The parameters are structured in a parameter tree.


Event-Logbook and Alarm Messages

The device has an automatic self check. All alarm messages are shown clearly in the display and are stored in the event-logbook. The logbook is presented on the display and can be transferred using the USB port. For example, the event-logbook tracks which user has when calibrated which product with what value.


User Administration

The system security is very important. The controller has a comfortable user administration. It is possible to define several users with different access authorizations. This user management ensures that only specific users are able to calibrate the device.


SonicGraph®

The sensor option SonicGraph® allows the visualization of the original ultrasonic signal. This function is very helpful to optimize the measuring conditions, for example influenced by gas bubbles.


Multilingualism

The controller allows the operation in several languages, and text inputs are possible in Latin, Asian and Cyrillic characters.
Provided languages:
German, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Polish


Multi Measuring Points

The Controller 30 includes the possibility to manage up to 4 sensors. The values of several sensors are presented in the 2- or 4-sensor view.


Multi-Component Display

The Controller 40 calculates and displays two different concentrations in a 3-component-liquid.

Controller types

TypesFeatures
Controller 40The controller 40 is used for the analysis of multi-component blends (lye-salt-water, acid-salt-water) especially in gas scrubber and neutralization applications.
Controller 30The controller 30 is equipped with a powerful sensor interface. This enables the communication and power supply of up to four sensors. This This allows the realization of budget-optimized solutions for multi point measurements.
Controller 20The controller 20 is an economical unit and ideal for cost-conscious end-users. This controller has reduced equipment and can interface with only one sensor.

Controller accessories

The controller is designed for rack-mounted systems. Alternatively the controller is available with a 19“ housing 4HU.

In order to mount the controller into the field, field housings made of plastics, stainless steel or with explosion-proof can be delivered, which meet on-site conditions in an optimal way.
