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.

In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, pollution and runoff from storms and snowmelt are getting the close look they deserve, and there’s much more to examine.
Weather, from heavy spring storms to long months of snow and freezing temperatures, makes the polluting potential of runoff and snowmelt greater than and different from warmer climate cities, said Garry Codling in an email. In Saskatoon, potentially harmful elements in runoff can exceed the guidelines for runoff set by the Canadian government.Read More
Appalachia may be as closely associated with mining as it is to anything else. That close relationship will leave its mark on the area’s streams long after the last mine closes.
A nine-year study recently published in Science of the Total Environment shows that long after mining activity stops and the land is left to heal, streams and stream life are slow to recover.
“We could be really fine point and say that some of them seem to be recovering very, very slowly,” said Carl Zipper, professor emeritus of environmental science at Virginia Tech University . Most of the streams studied didn’t show signs of recovery.Read More
An unusual nuisance is slowly growing into an inexplicable problem for researchers at Montana’s Department of Environmental Quality .
For the last five years, a native species of algae called Cladophora has covered large portions of the Smith River, one of the state’s most popular waterways for boating, fishing and recreating. And scientists don’t know why.
“It’s just unusual. I don’t know if it’s extreme for the state of Montana as other systems have had Cladophora problems as well. But it’s most unusual due to the lack of land use changes,” said Chace Bell, a water quality assessment specialist with the Montana DEQ.Read More
