Integrating multi-zone PID control into PC, PLC and DCS-based systems now takes only a few minutes with Red Lion’s Modular Controllers.
By lifting the burden of PID control from the controller, expensive I/O cards are avoided and valuable PLC memory and processing power are freed for other tasks.
The Modular Controller is comprised of a master module and up to 16 PID modules. With two PID loops per module, a single master can accommodate up to 32 loops, saving space and greatly reducing total comms scan time compared to discrete node solutions.
The master communicates PID module data to the external PC, PLC or DCS simply by selecting and downloading the proper device driver, allowing the Modular Controller to communicate in your device’s native language.
Drag and drop controller data to PLC registers in seconds using point-and-click data mapping from the extensive menu of built-in serial and Ethernet drivers.
It’s complete integration— without writing a single rung of tedious PLC code. With its RS-232/485 and 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports, the master can be connected to almost any device.
Hot-swap design and storage of each module’s configuration and firmware data automatically programs a replaced module.
With the Modular Controllers, not only are programming costs slashed, you can eliminate costly add-on I/O and analog cards and solve applications simply using an inexpensive brick PLC.
