Innovation in Control

Simple –  Turn it On. Set or Select a Recipe. Run.

  • Bake-Out automatically bakes out moisture from heaters to prevent shorts.
  • Evensoak automatically ramps up your hot runner by group for even expansion, so you won’t have to remember to come back and turn on your drops or worse yet turn everything on at once (causes wear at gate and manifold).
  • Quickly adjust set points by groups within your hot half.
  • Auto or manual slave off other thermocouples.
  • Instant diagnostics with easy to see alarms including temperature, amperage, percent power, t/c open/reverse and heater open/triac short.
  • Maximum percent power limiter on Pulse (for low amp installations).
  • Reassign thermocouple designations if there is a miswire in the hot runner junction box.
  • Boost or idle with one button.
  • Save recipes.
  • Assign security levels.

Practical and High Tech – Always Working for You!

  • ATP™ (Active Thermocouple Protection) automatically protects thermocouples from short-circuit current leakage while improving thermocouple signal accuracy.
  • Extremely accurate, constant tuning PID algorithm, with 8.33 ms (milliseconds) power increments, prevents scrap and enables tight processing windows.
  • Embedded software and industrial-grade components ensure long-lasting reliability.
  • Waterfall Technology™ reduces peak KWh consumption.
  • Simple, color touchscreen displays are easy to use, and you’re never more than one click away from the main page.
  • USB for screen captures.
  • VNC Viewer for remote monitoring or creating/editing recipes.
  • 4-Channel I/O on Pulse units for Softsoak & alarm outputs and inputs for Run, Stop, Boost, and Idle.
