LC5248E-AT Auto-Tune Controller

Masibus LC5248E-AT PID Controller series is designed to offer outstanding control performance in a compact package providing a comprehensive solution for a wide variety of applications: such as plastic manufacturing, packaging machinery and food processing applications requiring precise heat/cool control and processes protection alarming.

LC5248E-AT PID Controller offers a cost-effective alternative to implement loops in a PLC while at the same time improving loop performance. It accepts one universal process input suitable for Thermocouple, RTD or linear mA/Volt. All inputs and outputs can be read directly over the Modbus communication interface by the supervisory host system as well as process value can be retransmitted to remote PLC/DCS.

This expands capabilities of available PLC/DCS and host supervisory system I/O, simplifies machine troubleshooting and remote diagnostics. With a fast responsive PID auto-tuning algorithm it is equipped with Heat/Cool relay or SSR output for control function. Auto-tuning adjusts the PID parameters for desired set-point according to the current process dynamics so it has no harmful effect on the current operation.

It has flexibility to switch control to On-Off or Manual mode for non critical applications. Two outputs are available providing a combination of Relay (alarm output) and Relay or SSR (control output) based on application requirement. Compact size and simple programming makes the installation and operation of Controller easier and user-friendly.
