Fakuma 2017 Tall order for hot-runner controller
Controllers – PSG will showcase its new Profitemp+ hot-runner controller that has a tower offering 54 to 120 zones. Two devices can even be combined to provide up to 192 zones, the company notes.
Until now, the Profitemp+ is available with a desktop housing for six to 48 zones.
According to PSG, one important factor during the development of the tower for controllers up to 120 zones was its footprint – it had to be small! As such, the new Profitemp+ fits in environments with limited space but still matches all the functions and control perfomances of the desktop version.
A touch screen (7-inch for desktop housing, 10-inch for the tower), integrated in the housing to operate the controller, is standard. PSG offers customers the option to have the touch screen as a remote entity as well. Another possibility is a15-inch industrial PC installed with the Temp-Soft-2 operation software known to Profitemp.
For 192 zones, two devices are connected with an Ethernet cable and started with the push of a button. Control, display and operation is carried out on the device from which the connection is initialised, without the need for special settings or hardware, the company explains.
Thanks to its Smart Power Limitation, heating power at the heating output is reduced to ensure staying within the limits of the allowed power from the socket and as such provides reliable operations.
The company will in Hall A4, Booth 4209 at Fakuma.
