The utilization of a pyrometer as a transducer provides very fast actual value measurement. These values are processed extremely quickly in the PI 6000 with a sampling time of only 250 µs. The device is therefore predominantly used in applications in which fast temperature measurement and control are required, e.g. in induction surface hardening.
Up to 9 control programs can be programmed in the PI 6000; these programs can be used to define desired temperatures that can be applied one after the other with changes from one temperature to the next controlled, based on time or temperature. The Auto-Tune function automatically finds unknown control parameters for new tasks. As a result even difficult control tasks can be solved.
The control programs are prepared easily using a PC and the InfraWin software supplied, then the PI 6000 operates autonomously without a PC.
The control programs saved can be selected, started, stopped or even briefly interrupted using the buttons on the controller; inadvertent changes to the control data are not possible on the PI 6000.
In operation, the display provides information on the actual temperature measured by the pyrometer, the control program selected as well as the controller output's activity. LEDs over the buttons indicate the program status.
In addition the InfraWin software has features for analyzing and monitoring the actual control process; a useful instrument for the optimization of the control parameters and placing in operation.
