Yokogawa Corp. recently released 3 UTAdvanced® temperature controllers — the UP55A and UP35A profile controllers, and the UM33A digital indicator with alarms. According to the company, these easy-to-use controllers deliver:
- Precise PID control — even in challenging control dynamics.
- Standard embedded ladder sequence control (in all UTAdvanced® models, except the UM33A), which supports 84 ladder commands, and a variety of analog and digital I/O points.
- The power to program up to 500 ladder steps that can be run together with PID control.
- PLC capabilities that allow engineers using a temperature controller, along with a mini/micro PLC, to obtain the same control functionality in 1 package at the cost of just the controller.
