  • West 6170+, 8170+, 4170+ Temperature Controller with VMD Outputs

    The 6170+, 8170+, and 4170+ single loop controllers are part of the Plus series range and are designed specifically for open loop, valve motor drive (VMD) applications.

    The 6170+, 8170+, and 4170+ incorporate advanced tuning algorithms, with selectable pre-tune and self-tuning for easier setup. The self-tune also reduces output activity to an absolute minimum without compromising control quality, thereby reducing wear and tear on mechanical components such as valves, contactors and relays. In test, these controls have cut down valve oscillation from 30 to 40 times a minute to just a few. Pre-tune plus self-tuning has also been shown to get on control up to 3 times faster.

    In addition to the VMD outputs, further output options exist for the 6170+, 8170+, and 4170+ series which can be designated as outputs for alarms, 24 VDC transmitter power supply, retransmit process value or setpoint.

  • West 6700+, 8700+, 4700+ Limit Controller

    The 6700+, 8700+, and 4700+ limit controllers are members of the P series family. These instruments provide a latched relay output which is activated when process value either exceeds or falls below the a pre-set limit level, providing a fail-safe cut off which has to then be reset before the process can continue. The LED indication shows when limits have been exceeded and when the relay is latched out.

    With a full range of universal sensor input options, the 6700+, 8700+, and 4700+ provide a valuable control ‘watchdog’ for most systems. Features include: high or low trip points, 5 amp latching limit relay, remote reset option, exceed & relay indicators, jumperless configuration,  auto detection hardware, modbus & ASCII comms, two annunciators or alarms,  available in 1/16, 1/8 & 1/4 DIN formats.

  • West MAXVU Digital Temperature & Process Controller

    MAXVU has been designed to offer essential temperature control in a device that’s easy to install and fast to program. With its improved display visibility, the MAXVU series units provide an affordable solution for applications where primary temperature control functions such as heat only or heat/cool are needed.  The MAXVU series comes in two DIN sizes (MAXVU16 for 1/16 and MAXVU8 for 1/8), offers a universal input, and features up to 3 outputs with a choice of either relay or SSR. Typical applications include packaging processes such as sealers and many more.

  • West MLC-9000+ Temperature Control System

    The MLC 9000+ maximizes up-time by offering a true hot-swap facility. A module can be removed, replaced, automatically re-configured and back in service in under 30 seconds. Unlike some systems, with the MLC9000+ there is no need to touch the remaining control modules – allowing them to continue functioning when any of the other modules are removed.

    Communication module options currently include Modbus, DeviceNet, Profibus and Modbus/TCP. Control modules are available with 1, 3 and 4 loops. Heater break inputs are available on 1 and 3 loop modules.

    The MLC 9000+ system provides a compact multi loop DIN-rail process control system. Even using a full complement of 8 control modules, providing up to 32 loops, the MLC9000+ still only measures 206mm wide making it the ideal choice when panel space is a concern.

  • West N2300 Single Loop Controller

    The West N2300 Single Loop Temperature Controller offers real flexibility as it can be used as a controller or an indicator.

    The N2300 series has the largest red or green digital display in a 1/32 DIN package. In addition to the red or green display, the N2300 benefits from three additional multi-color LEDs to indicate process, alarm and configuration statuses.

    The large, tactile rubberized keys provide a more practical human interface which is complemented with a specially developed hands-free PID tuning algorithm, Easy-Tune, which continuously monitors and improves control. Alternatively the instrument can be manually fine-tuned for a specific application. The N2300 indicator has up to to two outputs (relay or solid state driver) for alarm. The controller version can have an additional relay or RS232 serial communications.
