The Ascon K85 Mini Programmable Temperature Controller has been cleverly designed to be installed inside an industrial control panel, mounted on a DIN rail and with or without the display showing through a cut-out in the control panel door. Mounting this unit inside a control panel helps remove the possibility of operators changing the controller’s settings and offers an increased degree of physical protection.
Versatile, this PID controller offers more flexibility than other panel mounted equivalents and can be used as an alarm module or PLC expansion module inside a control panel. Configurable and easy to install as either as a PID controller or in an ON/OFF thermostatic mode, programming is carried out using the 4 function keys, a programming device, or by use of a PC.
