The Extech Temperature PID Controller offers Fuzzy Logic PID, auto tuning, and soft start features for the ultimate control.
The Extech Temperature PID Controller uses Fuzzy Logid PID and soft-start features to protect heaters from cold starts. The PID plus Fuzzy Logic tackles the most demanding applications, eliminating over-shoot, unwanted process fluctuations, and drift. The soft-start feature is ideally suited for processes such as in the Thermo-Plastics industry, where careful and exact slow heating of products is required.
The dual 4-digit LED displays for processes and setpoint values. Programming and navigation are made easy with the user-friendly menus and tactile keypad. The manual mode allows users to override automatic control and drive the controller output higher or lower. The one-touch auto tuning is available for quick set-up and stable, precise control. Two latching alarm relays standard with 8 alarm modes plus advanced timer modes.
The single stage ramp and soak program with ramp-to-setpoint limit can be combined with the soft start feature for critical process demands. The controller accepts thermocouple and RTD inputs. The temperature display is °F or °C selectable, the thermocouple input has 9 selectable types, and the RTD input has 2 selectable types from the display menu without the need for hardware modification.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
