LC5296-AT Auto-Tune PID Controller

Masibus LC5296-AT is designed to offer outstanding control performance in a compact 96x96x65mm 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.

LC5296-AT 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 without repeating process-cycle and so has no harmful effect on the current operating conditions. Controlling can also be shifted to On-Off mode for non critical applications.

Two outputs are available providing a heat/cool control operation or one set-point control plus one alarm. 15 types of process protection alarm functions are included. It has option of SMPS (85-265 VAC) and DC (18-36 VDC) power supply options.
